portraits

Sunday, July 7, 2013




these are the amazing (or at least Oliver & I think so) portraits that sweet as can be Meagan Lewis took for us !

oh Boy ! how thrilling is it to have a photo of yourself that you actually like ? THRILLING ! that actually looks like someone who knew what they were doing it took those photos. My business has reached the point where I'm beginning to be asked frequently to submit and artist's bio and portrait, I am so happy to have a photo that I feel so great about - I think she really captured my personality and a little bit of the colourful atmosphere found here at our bustling Creative Empire. Oliver as Boss(y) Cat of CEHQ* is over the moon at the serious & professional yet super approachable demeanour (of his) which Meagan so perfectly captured and that last shot of me ? well ... I think if you are someone who knows me personally you have seen that look on my face. I'm so happy with these portraits - thank you again Meagan at Gallery 8 Amherst, NS.

oh ! & ps today is my birthday and how about my new sassy short hair do ? I LOVE it ;-)
