I've Moved My Blog!

Thursday, April 14, 2011

I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has followed my blog. I've had over 7000 blog views in the last year and I really, really appreciate you following along and making comments.

That being said, I've moved my new blog over to my new website.

You can read, comment and share it all at http://www.sandrafinnerphotography.com/

So update your favorites and thanks again for following me in my journey!

Much Love,


Eenie, Meenie, Miney...Mo

I've been going through a few of my more recent photos trying to determine my favorites. It's so fun to hear comments from people as to which ones they like. Sometime our picks are the same and sometime we are completely opposite in opinion.

This was one I liked and quite a few people agreed. I have more to post in the days to come. You know, when I get all that extra time I have coming to me.

Enjoy the sunshine!

Family Time.

I can't believe how long it has been since I last posted to my blog. I've been somewhat on blog hold by all the newness around me and I needed to get some familiarity back. New camera. Loads of new software. Venturing into the abyss of website development.

That added with a much needed trip to the sunny south, planning a European vacation and my daughter's dance competition are just a couple things that have eaten up the time. Yup. Family Time. The best.

Today feels like a 'day one' again. I've given myself that time to sort through some of these aspects and although nothing ever happens as quickly as I'd like, it's back to work.

Oh! And Thank you tenacity... for your stranglehold.

Cuteness in Ribbons and Bows.

The bride and groom are certainly THE most photographed people at a wedding but who can resist the cuteness of the flower girl and ring bearer as they head down the aisle?

There is such randomness to their decent.  Zigging, zagging, stopping, running, on the verge of tears or acing their rehearsal moves.

The Forrest Gump anecdote on life 'you never know what you're gonna get' is an appropriate statement at a wedding and even more specifically with these little ones.  But one thing for sure is they're going to be a 10+ on the cute factor. 

Even funnier? The coaxing and coaching going on in the front of the ceremony by a couple people who have forgotten to exhale since the first note of the Wedding March. 

We're Growing!

Well Sandra Finner Photography is expanding...not me physically!  ( :

As some of you may know from following me on Facebook and Twitter, I bought some new gear lately and my website development is in the works so this blog will then become a section of that. I've also added new editing packages which are pretty fun to work on and produce even more artistic photo options. 

I also can't say [enough] how much I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE chatting with newly engaged couples that I've met and hear how excited they are for their big day. The excitement for me is also about getting to photograph those amazing wedding moments and I want those images to be perfect for the bride and groom. 

That's a little of what I've been up to lately. 

                          Stay tuned for the new company look coming soon. I hope you like it!

                    There is something wondrous in the way a little girl looks at a bride.  

Right under my Nose

Last week I had the opportunity to meet with Roxanne Crain, Sales Executive at the Museum of Civilization, to check out the venue for prospective clients. I was so amazed  how fabulous this location is for a wedding. The walls of windows overlooking the Ottawa River and the Parliament Buildings, the incredible architecture and the displays of Canadiana scenery which would make a fantastic backdrop for any bride and groom's wedding photos. I actually came home and told Steve we should renew our vows so we can have a great big party there! He just LOVES my grand ideas. No seriously, he does.

There are so many beautiful venues in Ottawa that are unique for a wedding and this is definitely one of them. www.civilization.ca/facilityrentals
