Well, I can't believe how negligent I've been in blogging, really! But such is life. It's been an incredibly great summer with some very fun jobs, including this fashion shoot I did for Genesis Fashions, featuring the work of the wonderfully talented Daphne Odjig. It's a new line of clothing that features Odjig's prints and i was fortunate enough to be hired to shoot it for them. After shooting lots of pants, dresses, coats and stuff, the final piece of the day was this stunning full length - well, all i can call it is piece of wearable art. This model was a joy to work with as well! I'll post a link to the website once they get all my photos loaded so you can check out the awesome clothes!

There is nothing like a newborn baby to turn any woman into mush. Whether it's the wisdom you see in their eyes or the peacefulness as they sleep, these tiny little beings are nothing short of magical and every time I get the honour to photograph one, I marvel at their beauty.

Welcome to the world, Liam!

I was once again fortunate enough to get a trip to preview Cirque du Soleil for an upcoming show they will have in Penticton. The show, Dralion, was playing in Abbotsford and I had the chance to go see it and shoot for the Kelowna paper.

It was simply stunning!!!!!

I have lots of wonderful pictures but for some reason, this one just caught my eye first, perhaps because you can see the slight movement in his left leg so you know he's in motion.

The costumes are stunning, the music amazing and the acts are, well, they're Cirque, need I say more? I hope to get more posted soon.

What fun, I shot my first wedding at Sparkling Hill Resort last weekend - what a great setting! I was thankful for my sunglasses as my eyes welled up and over several times during this heartfelt ceremony that included a Sand Ceremony, with the white sand representing God, and different coloured sands representing the bride, groom and their children. They started with the white sand, each poured their own colour, then the bride and groom poured together and finished with white on top. It was just so beautiful!

Congratulations Deanna and Mark!!!!

Wow, have I been negligent in blogging! Yikes! I guess I've just been a little too slammed under and because I have been using Facebook more frequently, I sort of forget to blog. Bad, bad, bad...

What's been keeping me busy? Besides some theatre shoots and family portraits, I got to shoot Royal Winnipeg Ballet when they were in town - I was permitted to shoot from the wings, which is always exciting! Of course, it's a huge challenge as not only can you not trust your light meter, but you have to stay out of the way of the dancers who zip on and off stage at lightning speed.

I also was lucky enough to shoot a 10 hour old baby boy, the pregnancy shots just a few days before his birth, and a follow up at 10 days old. I will try to get some of those posted as well, however should you wish, you can find many more by searching me out on Facebook under Glenna Turnbull Photography. For now, enjoy this one of Alice and the White Rabbit from RWB's Wonderland!

Guitar Heaven

OK, so I went to the Joe Satriani concert to shoot it for the paper the other night and arrived in time to catch the opening act, a guy I confess i'd never heard of before, Dave Martone.

Well, I certainly know who is he now and the buzz around the theatre during intermission was palpable. I had one friend ask, how can Satriani top that?

For those who saw the show, Satriani picked up right where Martone left off and kept on building it higher, completely rocking out the theatre.

Talk about Guitar Heaven!

YIKES, I can't believe how busy I've been - and sadly, my blog has been grossly neglected! So, in an effort to make up for it, I'm making a New Year's resolution to try and be more regular in posting.

Family portraits kept me busy in November and over Christmas time, and December was busy shooting two casts of Nutcracker as well as Kelowna Actors Studio's White Christmas. Add to that trying to get all the photography and writing done for the first two issues of Big White magazine and, well, you get the picture (or actually, you don't get the picture...ha-ha-ha...)

So, here are a couple of quick favorites from Nutcracker. I will have all of the photos available for viewing shortly, just look under the Links tab on my website.

Happy New Year, everyone!
