My Vacation Through Photography
We are currently away enjoying a much needed break from our hectic lives. It is a time for our whole family to reconnect and join some much needed downtime together. During these times I get to take photos and document our time together as a tourist. For the next little while I will show a few of our special moments together. My family and kids are very special in my life. I love capturing those moments when my kids are being themselves. This love of the innocence of children is why I do what I do. beyond weddings I get to spend much of my work week capturing babies and kids just being themselves.
|One of my passions has always been the beauty of nature. For those who don’t know me personally before photography I majored in biology. my whole life I have been around animals and I love nothing more than going for a hike or spending tje summer camping. it is great to be hear in south carolina where it is warm enough to take photowalks or just sit outside in the evening or night. Hopefully before we go I will be able to capture the dear that visit our garden, the owls at night and an alligator or two.|
Best or worst wedding advice
During the run up to your wedding and in the “honeymoon” years your will get lots of advice about how to have a successful marriage. Some of it will be good. Some not as relevant. We have been following a facebook page and site called “marriage” that has daily (or more frequent tips) on marriage. It is somewhat religious but not every update is religious based. With that there are lots of great simple tips and updates that bring being married into context.
Some of the more recent updates that we like are:
- “Being in love means never having to say you’re sorry.” Whoever said that is probably divorced! The truth is that husbands and wives must be quick to forgive and humbly seek forgiveness from each other. “I love you,” “I’m sorry” and “I forgive you” should be said often.
- Love your spouse even when they’re being unlovable. When you promised “For better or for worse,” you promised to love them when they were at their best, but also when they are at their worst. Your love has the power to bring out the best in them and the best in yourself.
- If you focus on trying to change your spouse’s flaws, then both of you will be frustrated, but if you focus your energy on trying to change your own flaws, both of you will benefit.
With the stress of planning a wedding these thoughts are words to live by. As you go through heated moments think of the big picture … this is about starting a lifetime together.

National Cupcake Day for Humane Societies and SPCAs
All animal based charities and organizations are very dear to my heart. Blink of an eye has events throughout the year in support of the Oakville and Milton Humane Society. We work on the annual calendar and have hosted several events throughout the year with the proceeds going to the human society. Monday, February 25, 2013 is National Cupcake Day for Humane Societies and SPCA’s.
Our close friend and great baker Sprinkles Cakes and Cupcakes will be donating these cute paw print cupcakes to help support this great cause!! The Funds raised from National Cupcake Day™ go back to help the shelters, clinics, Inspectors and animals in your community.
SPCAs & Humane Societies receive very little government funding, so fundraising initiatives like National Cupcake Day are vital to increasing donations and awareness of the fight to prevent animal cruelty.

The Blink Of An Eye Wedding Photographer team is all female and ideal for South Asian weddings and other cultures that require a female wedding photographer to document the bride and her family while she is getting ready.
Even where cultures and customs do not necessitate a female wedding photographer we find that many brides feel more comfortable and at home with a female wedding photographer team to document the day prior to the ceremony. Having been trained as a doula in addition to the many pregnant and nursing moms that we have in our studio we strive to make any woman comfortable in any situation. Your wedding day can be stressful and having someone that you feel comfortable while getting your make up ready, getting dressed and bonding with your bridal party can impact the overall tone of the day.

Wedding Photography using light painting
What is light painting and how can it be used in your wedding photography?
"Light painting is a photographic technique in which exposures are made by moving a hand-held light source or by moving the camera. The term light painting also encompasses images lit from outside the frame with hand-held light sources. Light Painting Photography can be traced back to the year 1914 when Frank Gilbreth, along with his wife Lillian Moller Gilbreth, used small lights and the open shutter of a camera to track the motion of manufacturing and clerical workers. Man Ray, in his 1935 series “Space Writing,” was the first known art photographer to use the technique andBarbara Morgan began making light paintings in 1940."
Doing something a little different and fun can make your wedding photography stunning. Depending on the style that you are looking for using light to enhance your photographs can create an image that is unique. Light painting can be difficult sometimes in a summer wedding as it is best if you have complete or nearly complete darkness. If you do have a wedding in summer there is always the option to do it inside your venue if they have a dark area.
But no matter when you have your wedding look for an interesting idea to show something different for a few of your wedding photographs to augment the traditional posses, impromptu moments and the overall story of your wedding day.
