Archive for September, 2014

You never know what the weather is going to do this time of year.  In the last 2 weeks, we’ve had fog, frost, sun and heat!  So sometimes, when you just aren’t sure what the weather is going to do, it is better to just go for it!  And that is what we did a few weeks ago with the C family.  It was really windy and the sun was pretty non-existant, but we made the most of it and it turned out pretty perfect, if I may say so myself!

It is always a joy to photograph this family and I have had the honour for over 6 years now.  That 6 year old little girl, the smiley diva?  She is the little wide eyed newborn baby girl on my blog header – staring right at the camera!  I am so privledge to call them friends and I love watching their family grow and change through the years.  Without more rambling….here they are, the 2014 version of their family!

I consider it a real blessing and honour to photograph the families that I do.  It is an even greater privledge to photograph many of them repeatedly, year after year.  When you are part of some of the biggest moments in people’s lives, many times over, you feel like you are part of the family and slowly a friendship develops alongside the professional relationship.  The B family is one of those families.  I’ve watched them welcome their daughter into the world and become a parents for the first time.  I watched Mama K glow with joy during her second pregnancy and also photograph their new baby boy shortly after.  I’ve taken countless family portraits for them and smiled with glee when I see them displayed in their home.  And this past spring, we even watched each other’s daughters dance in their first ballet recital!  Worlds coliding!

And now, an updated fall family session that was pure amazing-ness!

And while this one isn’t quite in focus…(opps, it happens)  I couldn’t discard it.  I love the movement and the wind through her hair.  Pure childhood!

Sit down.  Grab a coffee.  This is going to be a long, picture heavy post!

This session was a wonderful, thoughtful Father’s Day gift for Daddy P.  When J first contacted me about a gift card for the occassion, she litterally gushed about what a wonderful father he is to his girls and how much fun they have with each other.  You could just feel the love and admiration oozing from the email!  She really wanted a session that could capture their love and just how much they enjoy each other’s company.

I won’t lie…I felt the pressure!  But I think we got just what they were looking for.  There were lots of giggles and silliness and most of all love.

Thank you J for entrusting me with your vision!

After a cold and cloudy day, the sun decided to announce it’s beauty, right in time for this lovely family’s photo session.

It turned into a gorgeous evening, which meant giggles and fun and lots of cuddles.  Big brother E, is smitten with his little sister, L and was a big helper getting her to smile and not play shy with the photographer, as 9 month olds often are.

We ended as the sun set (a little too early for me these days!), all smiles and love and hugs.  Perfect.

I love this one of Mom and Dad.  I always like to offer parents a moment to themselves to reflect on the beautiful family they started and the memories they have created together.  Often they haven’t had their portrait taken alone, together since their wedding day!

There are still a few fall sessions available!  Find me on Facebook.


Wow!  I haven’t done a product spotlight in a long while!  Well, it is about time, as I’ve just added these beauties to your product options – PHOTOBOXES!

One of the most common remarks I get after shooting a session and sending my clients their online proof gallery is, “I don’t know how I am going to choose!”

Well, with the introduction of the photoboxes to the product lineup, you won’t have to!  The boxes are designed by me, with the image and colour scheme chosen to compliment your session and include 25 5×7 bordered images of your choosing.  The nice thing about the photobox is you might have a picture you want to display in a frame in your home, and then maybe later change it up for another one – you have a box full of choices.  Or use it as a keepsake box to give to your newborn/child when they grow up.  The possibilies are endless.

Last week I got to spend a little time with this wonderful family.

It was a celebration of all sorts!

Grandma and Grandpa were celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversary!  Can you image?  Their love for each other was evident and was the adoration they had for their grandkids.  What a wonderful family legacy they created together.  On top of that, it was Mom’s birthday too!  It was so nice to be there with them, creating portraits that will preserve these special moments in their family story, and eventually be hung on their walls to admire for years to come!
