What a gorgeous fall morning!  And what a gorgeous family to pair with it! 

I thoroughly enjoyed my time photographing and getting to know the B family.  It was one of those sessions where they are friends with friends and know so and so – you know those “small world” type connections?  So it was nice to finally put the faces to the name.  And on top of that we discovered our oldests kids are in the same class together!  So really a small world!

Thanks again C&B – enjoy your sneak peek!

I love maternity sessions!

They are always so fun for me, mostly because everyone is SO happy!  But they also come with different types of families every time, which makes them unique and exciting for me as a photographer.  Sometimes there are older siblings, sometimes toddler or baby siblings.  Sometimes they are first time parent’s to be, sometimes veteren parents…but always the happiness. LOVE.

This family was no exception!

First I was introduced to big brother to be.  When I arrived at 9:30 am, Mr. O had already been to the airport to watch the planes take off, so these first captures are particularly apropo!  He loves planes!

and then the rest of the family 🙂

I was starting to worry that this maternity session would turn into a newborn session!  We had to reschedule it twice due to rain, hail, wind – you name it!  But in the end, we had a GORGEOUS evening with lovely sunlight and a beautiful mom to be.

The boys LOVED exploring the grounds, but they were good enough to smile for me for ohhh about a second!  🙂

I don’t get to photograph this age group very often, so this session was a real treat for me!

Baby B came to see me at the Experimental Farm on a sunny warm evening last week.  She was bright eyed and ready to go!  One of the perks of photographing this age is the eye contact an “older” baby can give you.  And boy, was Baby B all eyes!  Just beautiful!

And just as we wrapped up, she finally fell asleep.  It is hard work being a model!

There are very few summer nights left now – sniff, sniff – and soon enough the cool days will be upon us.  Shooting in the warm glowing sun will come to an end for another season.  So the fact that it was above 30 degrees in the evening a few days ago, was AH-MAZE-ING!  It made for a great session with this crew -10 year old twins and a 6 year old.  I thought I might have my work cut out for me, but they were troopers and we had a lot of fun!

It is sometimes hard to be 10, and a boy, and pose for the photographer…but we got it!  Such a handsome man!

I met the active and adorable little O – and his parents – at the Experimental Farm last week for a fun filled 18 month old session!

O definitely kept me on my toes, but I enjoyed every second.  It is so fun to watch them explore the grounds and play with mom and dad.  I think I had a smile on my face the entire evening!

This session was a birthday gift from some very good friends.  I really hope that mom and dad can look back at these pictures and remember what their son was like at 1.  As we all know, they grow so fast!  R&N enjoy your sneak peek!

***UPDATE***  This event is now SOLD OUT.  Thank you to my old (and new) clients for making the fall mini sessions a big success, each and every year!

My Fall Mini Sessions are always very popular.  However, this year exceeded my expectations!  I normally give my past clients the chance to scoop up the coveted spots first – prior to releasing the information on my blog or facebook page.  This year I didn’t even get a chance!  I had a waiting list.  So with further consideration, I have decided to open up a second day.  If you are considering booking a session for your family, please don’t delay!  Spaces are limited.

Contact me at for availability

This is the perfect time to capture your family with colours of fall as a beautiful backdrop,  AND as I will again be offering a new selection of holiday cards, it is also a great opportunity to get that special family image to grace your very own custom holiday card!

Please note: Mini Sessions are NOT available for newborn sessions.  They are a special session that requires much more time than a mini session allows for.
