Over the Rainbow
January 20th, 13
I found some images of The Reverb Syndicate I took back in the fall. It was nice to see the whole group together again. Opening for them, Marc Audet and Curtis MacPhee from The Still Winter Hills. The Reverb Syndicate have such an amazing energy. It doesn’t hurt that the go-go dancers keep the memento going. Even though I love the sound and the atmosphere of the Rainbow, the lighting is sub par. As always the show was killer. I danced my little size 5s until they were sore to walk.
ROLLER DERBY CALENDAR
November 20th, 12
Back in September I had the pleasure of photographing a few images for the Rideau Valley Roller Girls, (Roller Derby League). Each year the league print calendars to raise money for their teams. I volunteered to do some photography since I love the sport and well, I’m not really good at much else, so my volunteer skills are limited. Haha. The two months I shot for were November: Pinball Wizards, and December: NameSake. Both shoots were super fun, the only problem was we couldn’t use more of the images. So in saying that, here are the ones the derby chose and a few of the images that didn’t make the cut, but still deserve to be seen. The athletes (and Jeff) made great models, got into character, and had lots of fun. If you are looking to pick up a calendar or two, and are in the Hintonberg/Westboro you can come see me at Tuesday’s the Romance Store. They would make a great Christmas gift and you help support a great bunch of hard working ladies and men that make the derby roll smoothly. Like that? Roll smoothly. Haha. The last two images were the winners

Last month I had the pleasure of shooting a boudoir session with this lovely lady. She had lost some weight, in a new relationship, and wanted some images taken. Oh, did I mention she’s a grandma? At first she was shy about modelling (and the sexiest photos will not be posted, haha), but as I showed her images along the way, her confidence grew. These images she agreed to share on my site.
