Years ago I spent summers babysitting this raspy voiced, freckle faced little girl and her siblings. And over the last few years this little girl has gone from a cousin I babysat, to a good friend. I’ve documented Kathryn and Aaron’s engagement, wedding, first pregnancy and baby… and so excited now for baby number 2! When they visited recently, we took a couple minutes to capture a few images of this beautiful belly and family! Love this family so much – and we were so thankful to have a visit from them as we miss them now that they’ve moved back to Northwestern ONtario!

Celebrating life and love,


It is always such an honour to document a family through their major milestones. I met Paul and Becca a few years ago and documented their engagement, wedding… and now was thrilled to meet and photograph their family of three. Little Evan is so loved – it was so great to see these three interacting together. This little guy is always laughing and smiling – and it’s no wonder as this is such a happy family!

This was as soon as Paul and Evan got out of the car….. still in the parking lot. I knew I was going to have a fun session!

3582 10151582235626558 795692536 n 300x300 Chases Smiling Eyes  As I mentioned recently and you may know, I am a member of Smiling Eyes This is a group of photographers that donate photo sessions to people journeying through cancer. This past week I was honoured to photograph not just one amazing family – but two! I recently blogged about Caydance… not meet 7 year old Chase!

When I met Chase the first thing I noticed was his awesome freckles! I’ve always been envious of freckles. But within seconds the freckles are long forgotten because this high energy, fast talking little man has your full attention as he talks about dogs, boats, or about anything that pops into his head. I loved hearing all that was going through his mind! Such a sweet guy!

Chase’s journey with cancer may have claimed his kidney – but not his love of life and spunk!

I’ve mentioned bravery beads before and how much I love them! SUch a great visual reminder of each child’s unique health journey. Chase showed me some of his favourites before dancing with them! icon smile Chases Smiling Eyes
