Oliver didn’t really want his photo taken this day but he was being too cute (ok goofy) lying on the floor not to snap a few photos. So glad I did…

As you can tell by now from this blog, Oliver and I goof around with the camera quite often. Whether it be one of our lazy Sunday mornings or another day, we like to make photographs of each other. On this day, we decided to take a couple photos of his Disney Infinity characters, Mr. […]

Continuing with the theme of the last post (i.e. Star Wars), Oliver wanted a Star Wars themed birthday party this year. So we had Star Wars themed decorations, games, cupcakes, presents and loot bags. Oliver invited some of his school friends over to play and enjoy the birthday celebrations. It was a lot of fun […]

Took a few photos of Oliver in the front yard. Was testing a old film camera with some Ilford Black and White film and decided to make a few photos using my DSLR as well. Love these quick and fun snaps of Oliver just being a kid. These are some of the best memories that […]

It was a great summer for sports in our family. I’ve been playing Masters lacrosse in Brampton for the past 5+ years and this year I played for the Brampton representative team, winning the provincial championships for the first time. Oliver also played lacrosse for the first time and enjoyed it immensely. It was so […]

Canada Day is always such a big celebration day with us. We’ve been a part of the Rosedale Neighbourhood Street Party for a couple of years now – celebrating Canada Day with friends and neighbours. Oliver especially loves it because there are so many fun activities for the kids to do: jump on the trampoline, […]

Twice a year, Oliver’s school has a “fun fair” to raise funds and promote community involvement. This was our first time going and Oliver certainly had a blast. He loved talking and playing with all his friends and we enjoyed mingling with the other parents. I’m sure we all look forward to the next. Cheers! […]

Easter weekend. Good Friday to be exact. We were about to head to Grandma and Grandpa’s for a nice day and early dinner to celebrate Easter. Oliver and I had a bit of time to kill as Dana was still getting ready. For whatever reason on this day, Oliver was being incredibly cute in front […]

Oliver’s Grandmother was celebrating her 65th birthday this year so we had a little party for her, complete with her closest relatives. We had wonderful Ukrainian food, lots of presents and great laughs. Oh, and there was cake – how could we forget that? Cheers! t.

It’s no secret I like to hibernate in the winter. Dana is the same way. But when we had Oliver, we realized that one or both of us would have to start venturing out during the winter months with him. And to see how excited he gets to play in the snow, how could you […]

Hallowe’en is always fun around our house. Dana really decorates the place up right. Oliver loves to get dressed up as seen in our previous posts (Oliver’s first Hallowe’en, Oliver’s second Hallowe’en, & Oliver’s third Hallowe’en) and this year was no exception. Oliver originally wanted…

Just another couple of shots of Oliver from around the house. He certainly loves his scooter! He also enjoys doing something silly for the Flip Camera and then watching it playback on the screen. The photos below are from an earlier…

More bumming around the house. More Oliver eating and getting it all over himself. Trying some new angles and some new processing techniques. Some I’m liking, others won’t see the light of day! LOL! The moral of this story: Any way you look at it – I’m posting more fun pictures…

We don’t eat out on our back deck nearly as much as we should. It’s a beautiful spot, and the weather has been so picture-perfect this summer that it’s a shame we haven’t spent more time out there. We hope to remedy that in the coming years.
But for now, on this long weekend in May…

If I remember correctly, this was our Mother’s Day celebration. Oh and boy did we have fun! The day started with some fun playtime in the living room. We then got ready and went to the Sunset Grill for some brunch. It is our very favourite place to have brunch and the staff all know and love Oliver. He is such a charmer, that’s for sure…

More goofing around at home, over a great pancake breakfast (as most typical Sundays begin in our household).

It seems that every time Oliver and I are goofing around the house – the camera comes out. I guess that’s the life of a photographer and a photographer’s son. On this particular day, Oliver played with the iPad, ate a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and we made popcorn and watched a movie. Sounds like…

I had been growing my hair for quite a while. I thought that I wanted it longer as I was tired of the buzzed head that I had been sporting for the last few years. But there comes a point, the “in-between” point where you just can’t live with it any longer. If you can push through that point, you can get the hair growth…
