Paddyfest

I know it's been a long time coming, but here, finally, is a smattering of Paddyfest photos. I have to say that I had such a fun time with these girls. They are all awesome people, and every single one of them, in my opinion, would have made a terrific Paddyfest Amabassador.

Here's a quick slideshow of some of my favourites from our photo session and from the competition:



If there are other folks out there who would like this kind of photo, I would LOVE to do more. I think it is, in particular, a fantastic idea for graduation photos. I mean the cap and gown may be traditional, but photos like these are about capturing you at this stage of your life, just before your world is about to change. I would be thrilled to be able to do this for more people, and with more time to individualize the shoot.

Thanks again to Dawn and the other Kinettes for making me part of Paddyfest!

SENIOR PORTRAITS!!! They are awesome, and a great way to share pics with friends and family and to include in your annoucement, Be original. How great is that!

Just BEAUTIFUL!! I love what you did with all of these photos. You are so talented. Do you think I would be able to get a DVD of all the pics and then I can copy one for each Contestant?? On behalf of the Contestants and the Listowel Kinettes, THANK YOU for donating your time and effort and for being so CREATIVE!! Excellent job!

Lisa, everyone is going to think that you mean pictures of senior citizens cause we don't call them seniors here - just Grade 12s or graduates. But I think they are an AWESOME idea and wish that they would catch on here like they are popular in the States.

Dawn - I'm sorry for taking so long to get the disks done. I'm planning a burning session tonight to get disks done for each of the girls, and one for you as well.

Very nice Manda - you continue to impress me. Either I have very low expectations or you KICK ASS!
