Family Day

photo by CL Buchanan Photography

In case you are stopping by from the Women in Business Conference on Monday, I thought I would put up a little note before I hit the road to Toronto.

Welcome to my personal blog. I haven’t spent as much time here lately as I like but as things get a little more organized here at home, I am finding the time to post here and there.

I am a photographer located out of Ottawa, you can visit my website and blog to see some of my recent work. My photography has taken on a life of its own so I seem to be spending more and more time there.  My son, J, is 7 1/2 and in grade 2 and my daughter, Apple, is 3 1/2 and still home with me, thus taking my life as a SAHM to  WAHM.  Hubby is a motorcyle driving, guitar playing, loving guy and the quiet behind all the chaos.

The nickname BeachMama comes from High School. Since my father was fifteen his family has been vacationing at Rehoboth Beach, Delaware and each summer as kids we would spend the last week of Summer vacation at Rehoboth, thus I would return to school tanned, wearing Jam shorts and wishing I was still at the beach.  My closest friends nicknamed me BeachMama, and when I started my own blog it was easy just to use that as my handle. You can also find me on Twitter as @Beach_Mama (I had to use the dash because somebody else stole my name 😉 ).  We, as a family, continue to visit Rehoboth each year and somewhere deep down I wish we could live there permanently, retirement is always an option.
