10 on 10 july

yesterday the girls spent the day at their grandparents house. vavo and vovo have a tonn of plum trees in their yard. so my kids got the idea to come home with a big box of plums and sell them outside of our house. 

the girls for some reason are always trying to make a buck, and it's exhausting the things they come up with. i told them that it was too hot and no one would buy plums from them.

i was wrong.

They sold every plum. sold out. and made 20 bucks. so yah - i heard a lot of "i TOLD you we could sell them mommy!"

never underestimate these kids i guess - but they are little con artists, they had sad faces for people passing by and were jumping and also recruited the neighbours kids as staff to help out with their sales. and how do they know to write 'organic' on all their signs to sucker people in??!

sigh... what am i going to do with these girls?

Here are some photos i took of them in action...

10 on 10 april

Last week i took the girls out to do some location scouting for my cousins up-coming wedding. the first photo i took, i asked them to pose like a bride and groom and this is what i got - haha... (susan & rob - take notes!)  after that, they were busy collecting shells, looking for seals and climbing all over the rocks.

the beach had these adorable blue adirondack chairs that overlooked to open ocean, it was truly breath taking being there. ruben and i agreed that one evening we should go back sans kids and have a coffee together. you know... without the screaming kids that scare you to death that they will fall off the cliff side.

so anyways - while i took these i thought of all my lovely canadian friends who are not having such great weather. jodi, sonja & geneve - anytime you want to come visit, you know you have an island travel guide right here! :)

maria - you are just as spoilt as i am with the weather we are having!

portraits of my middle child. january 10 on 10.

This year I am taking part of a 10 on 10 project with 4 other Canadian photographers, where we will post 10 photos on the 10th of every month. you get to take a little trip across canada and follow our little blog circle to see what the lives of 5 photographers looks like. I feel very lucky to be a part of this group of ladies. not only are they extremely talented - they are kind, supportive and just lovely! so when you are done reading make sure to click on the next link at the bottom!

i wasn't planning on using these photos of olivia for my january post. i took them a few days ago when the sun was pouring in - something i have missed over the dark holidays. i played with the light and shadows while she watched tv and captured my 10 photos. by the end she figured out what i was up to and started hiding her face.

now head over to maria's blog to see her 10 photos for january....  maria angerilli photography
