Guestblog: The big picture is starin' at me...

Krista from Oceanaria here reporting for duty. I have been bugging Ashelle to start up a blog for years now. I have known her from the beginning of our awkward teenaged years to now and have watched her blossom, grow, and come into her own. Makes me feel a little proud! As a personal blogger I have covered many touchy subjects in my life from my school-work, to my depression through to my dramatic move from Ontario to British Colombia. Ashelle asked me to blog for her while she's out playing hooky I came up with blanks for topics. Naturally I turned to the one person who always pushes me in the right direction and asked Ashelle what I should right. She brought up photography and art, duh! Of course. I had my shared my own moments of growth and I still feel that I have a lot to learn about life, love, and expression.

I started up my blog back in 2004, using it as a main source to showcase my photography through my personal blogging. The day-to-day became interesting not only for others but for me as well. I made good use of Flickr and away I went. Sharing my work online has helped me grow as an artist and share the world as I see it. Not only am I am amature photographer but I dabble with painting too. And while I painted I blogged, showing off my progresses, success and even the inevitable failures.

Last year I started to sell prints online which has boosted my confidence in what I do, and knowing prints are going off to friends (and sometimes family!) who support me in my creative endeavours. Each print goes towards the funding of our wedding day, which is coming up fast. Any extra funds will go a long way!

And that reminds me, I need to get out there and take more pictures! As a blogger I know that when others reach out to you it's an opportunity for growth, Thanks for reading my shameless plug on her blog, can't wait to extend the favour my way.



Krista from Oceanaria (a blog by Krista) has been a great friend of mine since the early years of high school.  She's beyond talented when it comes to art, photography and writing.  I've always been envious of her creativity and style.  

Krista is a wonderful person, who is always there for me when I need it the most.  She is open-minded enough to listen to all of my wacky thoughts & concerns. But with a gentle approach she is able give me the voice of reason.  I'm always thankful for this, even if I don't express it at the time. 

Whenever we get together, it's just crazy sexy times.   As you can see from our pictures together, we know how to have fun.  I tried looking for a picture of us that was 1) good and 2) appropriate i.e. not grabbing eachother's ass or sexually suggestive.  It's impossible.  Hopefully in the spring with her upcoming wedding we get some mature beautiful pictures along with the hawt ones.

Actually one of many challenges which people beginning a brand new on-line firm face is that of acquiring guests to their internet site.
