Taking a break!!

Hello everyone! I will be taking a break from clients for a few months while I am nearing the end of my pregnancy. It's gotten far too embarrassing being the giant pregnant woman huffing and puffing with a camera in her hands :)

I will hopefully be restructuring the business during the cold winter months, as well as looking after a new baby, a preschooler!! and a big grade 1 boy!! (Yikes, how did that happen!?!) So please bear with me as I try to update as soon as I can as to when I will be taking clients again.

Please feel free to email me with any questions, although I may not reply as swiftly as normal. I am still around and will hopefully be putting up some newborn photos someday soon.

Thank you to all my new and old clients from 2012!

Fairies, princesses, brides... oh MY!

I love my boys, they are fantastic... however, having boys means a sore lacking in the princess-fairy-bride area of life (although I did offer my oldest the chance to tag along to this session if he wanted to dress up like the girls... I was turned down rather quickly).

A friend who lives close by has these two girls that I was just dying to take pictures of. They were just exactly what I was looking for. So of course like any sane photographer/artist I harassed her for the chance to borrow her girls... as well as dictate the sessions style. 

I had so much fun. She dropped off a series of costumes they had for me to choose from. I got to pick out jewellery, crowns, wings etc. I was in girly-stuff heaven. I also went super wild and heavy handed editing, and it was the best time ever. I loved every moment of it. 

Sometimes you just have to do a session that pushes your artistic vision.

Over share?? YES! But I had to, I love them all. If I could share all of them I would, I love them THAT much.

Now I just need to think of an awesome boy session. Girls really can't have ALL the fun.

Vintage wedding! So much fun!

I don't really DO weddings, but I was persuaded to do the wedding formals for this lovely couple (who has been on this blog before).

We were really apprehensive because the night before the session/wedding the weather channel called for thunder showers.. something very few would love on the day of their wedding (or photo session, in my case). We were thrilled then to have a hot sunny day! You can imagine my relief when I woke up that morning to see clear blue skies and the sun!

Aren't they beautiful?

Woohoo, we're married! If you're wondering why there is no one else there it's because the wedding didn't actually take place at this particular church.

Thanks to the awesome family that trusted me to take their wedding formals! I still can't see myself jumping into weddings any time in the near future... but never say never! I think we had a great time and I am so glad that I was given this opportunity!

On a roll!

I love to see how much my newborn clients change over a year. Remember this little beauty??

Here she is all "grown" up!!


Here are the beautiful sisters together.

Loving all the greens out there, especially after the many months of snow and cold.

Beautiful baby!


Thanks so much for all the fun!

It's Spring!! Well Summer technically.

Finally a bit of greenery out there! It's amazing how wonderful a bit of nice weather can make a person feel. Of course this session was taken in a brief interlude of very windy weather... which was better than 15 minutes earlier when it was raining.. and then the days of rain that came after it.

Wonderful family, tolerable weather, what more can I ask for?



My favorite, I love it in black and white and colour!!

Aren't they adorable? It's hard to keep an 18 month old still. 


Gorgeous girl! 


Thanks for the fun! I am glad we managed to get this session in. It's always amazing to me to see how fast these kids grow. I swear that it wasn't that long ago that I was practicing newborn photos on that little guy!

Hello nice weather!!

Just  few from the one really nice day last week. Now we're back to winds so strong it would knock you off your feet.

My dinosaur guy... and yes I am still alive.

It's been a long long winter. There is just something about it that sucks the creativity and energy out of me. I have picked up my camera only a handful of times. Mostly for my 6 year olds hockey games.. which really cements in my mind that I definitely am NOT a sports photographer. There is something very unappealing about editing one hundred photos of my child skating.. especially when they all look the same and he's wearing a helmet.

So without further excuses, here are a few photos from today's photo shoot with my little guy. This is his favorite thing to do ever, besides play/annoy his brother. I finally remembered today that I bought into the DSLR game in order to take better pictures of my children.. and yet I hadn't been taking pictures of them for months.







Love that little baby.... (shh he's still a little baby, can't you see the dinosaur print diaper??). 

P.s. Yes, I am totally sick of winter and can't wait to get outside... unfortunately it just snowed again today. So it may be weeks yet ... groan. 

p.s.s. Yes, I am also totally sick of my wall there. I thought about getting out a backdrop... but my determination and drive has petered out already. Yikes. Winter sucks.
