Christmas 2019

This past Christmas felt very low key with a lot of down time spent at home, which was just what I was looking for. We spent days just lazing around in our pyjamas, playing with toys, video games and the family dog. Below are a couple shots I took of the boys building a gingerbread…

William’s 7th Birthday Party

Yesterday we celebrated William’s 7th birthday by taking some friends to Riverview Bowling in downtown Peterborough. Bowling has become the go-to birthday party place for our family because the kids love it and they have all the food and stuff right there and it’s super affordable.

Start of December

I have a love-hate relationship with Ilford Delta 3200 film. There. I said it. I love the look that this film produces, but I’ve always had troubles working with it. I either expose it wrong or something messes up with the camera. Either way, I know I just need to work with it more. This…
