Two Bright Lights Editors' Choice Awards Winner!

I'm BACK from my trip to Santa Barbara and catching up online!  You'll be seeing some gorgeous shoots and fun photos from my time in California on the blog soon.  :) 

I opened my inbox today to find a lot of exciting emails, including one from Two Bright Lights.  Cecilia Flaming Photography has once again won a Two Bright Lights Editor's Choice Award! 

Awards are given in recognition of those whose number of published features in 2013 placed among the top 5% of all Two Bright Light members.  I am super excited to once again be part of this amazing selection of photographers.  Each feature this past year has enabled me to gain exposure and show off each of my clients and tell their stories again apart from their blog post!

Belle the Magazine // Featured!

I'm heading off to Santa Barbara, California this morning to attend a photographer's conference called United!  I didn't even realize that Kyle & Julia's wedding was FEATURED on Belle the Magazine yesterday until I arrived at the Vancouver airport!  So while I wait for my plane I wanted to let you know! Check out their feature! 

Thanks again to Belle the Magazine for the feature!  I'm honored!

Red Bull Illume Exhibit // 2014 Vancouver Tour Stop

Friday evening, Steve and I had a chance to head downtown via Skytrain and attended the Opening Night of the Red Bull Illume exhibition at the Jack Poole Plaza (Convention Center West, Vancouver).

The Red Bull Illume exhibition showcases the top 50 finalists from an action and adventure sports photography competition held by Red Bull.  Vancouver is the only stop for this tour on Canadian soil, so it's awesome that we had the chance to check out the photos!  A few Canadian photographers are included in the top images: Scott Serfas, Jussi Grznar, Sterling Lorence and Dan Carr (we even had a chance to meet some of them along with a couple of the athletes featured in the shots!).

The exhibit is still on till February 8 and starts daily around sunset. (I highly recommend you go and check it out if you have the chance!)  Here's a few candid shots Steve and I snapped while we were there...

To see the winning photos and finalists, visit Red Bull Illume.  There are some AMAZING shots!  I love looking at them over and over... Definitely gave me a lot of inspiration and ideas for my own photography!

Happy 4th Birthday Mocha // Personal

I'm not one to normally blog a cat's birthday... but this is our cat, Mocha and he's cute enough for the blog! haha.  We were given this pink cake over the weekend and I wanted to take a photo of it because it's so pretty... so I thought why not add Mocha into the mix and see if we can get a "birthday" photo of him?  
Yes, I know it's pink... and he's a boy.  Deal with it. haha!
He was a bit intrigued by it, sniffed it, but wasn't too interested in eating it (that was our job!)

Mocha has been with us since October 2009 when he was 8 months old... he's now 4 years old.
