Come see some stunning photography from Emma Love!


I always love to feature businesses who run in “The Real World” rather than online, and I have really enjoyed checking out Emma Love Photography.  Chatting with her in email has been just lovely…Emma has a fun, gentle personality that seems to shine through her photos…she really seems to be able to capture the *real* beauty in the simplest moments…I had a great time poking about her website.  Emma Love Photography is located in Rural Saskatchewan, so if you’re in that area(and yes, I know it’s a big area :) ), I encourage you to go have a peek at her work…I know you’ll love it!

As for Emma herself, when I asked her to write a blurb about her company, she sent me the “about me” blurb from her website, and then cracked me up by saying “I said it well once, so why try to change it?” lol.  I couldn’t agree more!  So here it is…all about Emma Love Photography!

“I love people.  As a photographer I cherish being invited into people’s sacred moments. My desire to capture honest, beautiful photos leads me to approach the traditional with an eye
for the serendipitous.  I lend direction to my clients only to the point of keeping a shoot well-organized and enjoyable, knowing that the best photos are often captured mid-sentence,
or mid-moment.  I strive to capture the essence and  feeling of a moment through careful attention to detail and a true love of beauty.”

Go check out her galleries…they’re just so fun!

Friday Tidbit: Fabulous Stacking Inukshuk from Painted Turtle!


Aren’t these the coolest?  This is a stacking inukshuk from Painted Turtle Wooden Toys, located in beautiful Muskoka.  I am so impressed with all the nifty toys over at their website, but this one really caught my eye.  These toys are created with locally sourced white ash, hand sanded to remove any pokeys, and then finished with food grade hempseed oil from Manitoba!

Says Veronica of Painted Turtle Wooden Toys:

“Our toys are made with the concerned parent in mind.  We take great pride in providing an heirloom quality wooden toy made with locally sourced hardwoods and completely non toxic finishes.  Furthermore, we use Canadian finishes as much as possible–our main finish is certified organic, food-grade hempseed oil from a farm in Manitoba!  We strive for complete disclosure of the materials we use and gladly welcome questions about our products.”

Moms and Babes always deserve a special treat, and you’ll find lots of fashionable accessories for both over at SaritaBaby!  Sarah is a stay at home mom to two wee kiddos, and yet somehow she still seems to find the time to sew up these beautiful goodies.  I don’t know how she does it, but if I had to guess, I’d say she’s probably just given up sleeping altogether! ;)
