Without sounding too cliche, I wanted to quickly talk about one of my New Years resolutions. This year, I want to increase my health, eat better, and get back into the gym and loose some weight. I realize that this is a common resolution, and often, it is one that falls by the wayside. But me? That is certainly not going to happen, because I have the best motivation in the world – I am getting married in less than 5 months, and I’ve got to fit into that tuxedo!
I am very happy to say that I have been sticking to my resolution for 5 weeks now, and everything is going fantastic; I have lost about 20 pounds so far, and am still going! Best of all, though, I am feeling better than every.
Through my research, talking with fitness trainers, and my own experience, I have put together a list of “rules” to follow for optimal weight loss, and I’ll be blogging those sometime in the very new future to help those of you who have a similar resolution.
Like I said, one of the biggest things that I have noticed, in cooking all healthy, organic foods, eating lots of vegetables, and avoiding the junk food is that I am feeling a million times better.
This is why it was so interesting to hang out with Kelly and chatting with her about her passion – vegan cooking.
I photographed Ken and Kelly’s wedding over two years ago, at the Prince of Whales in Niagara-on-the-Lake, and they recently contacted me, asking me to create some portraits of Kelly for their new website and restaurant. They’re opening an all-organic, vegan restaurant in downtown Burlington.
Much like how my change of eating habits has changed the way that I look and feel, Kelly says that when she decided to go vegan, it completely changed her lifestyle, and she has never felt better.
We will be getting together again, soon, to photograph the restaurant once the renovations are done, the different plates that they offer, and to capture the grand opening, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled!
In the meantime, I hope that you enjoy some of these beautiful images of the ever-so-stunning Kelly. ]]>
