July 8, 2013 Jon and Michelle

Jon and Michelle and I met on a beautiful summer evening exploring down a country laneway. They are such a fun couple – our time together was full of laughs and I can’t wait for their September wedding!

July 6, 2013 Before and After

It has been so fun to get to know this great family over the last few years. Five years ago in 2008, Greg and Kim were in a wedding party I photographed. In 2009, I photographed them as they waited for their first baby. Later that year I photographed baby Fox and then as a one year old.

I met up with Greg, Kim and Fox again recently to celebrate the anticipation of baby number two! Kim looked so good at full term – I kept commenting over and over how healthy and amazing she looks. Turns out she should… she is a nutritionist that specializes in maternal health! (Check out her website HERE). Fox now is no longer a baby, but a young boy full of personality and spunk!

So… those photos above were taken on June 22. A few days later on June 28, baby Rowan arrived! Five days after he arrived, I got to go meet him and connect with the family again.

It’s always amazing how big the sibling seems once a new baby sibling arrives.

Rowan started crying and getting fussy. It was so sweet, Fox quietly went over and looked at him with concern. Fox grabbed Rowan’s hand with his finger. And suddenly Rowan was quiet by the touch and presence of his big brother Fox.

June 27, 2013 Glen and Caryn

Like most days this summer – it called for rain. And when I looked at the hourly forecast – it showed rain and thunderstorms for every. single. hour. Not looking goof for Glen and Caryn’s wedding. But I was pleasantly surprised when the rain held off until the very last photo was taken outside and we headed to the reception. A perfect day for a great couple!

Glen and Caryn got married in Ingersoll near Glen’s family farm. It was a day of celebrating, laughter, love… and more laughs. Enjoy the memories!

Graham and Jen were so nervous about their engagement photos… but as you can see they had no reason to be nervous! We had a great evening (after so many rained out sessions this Spring!) and some magical light as we wandered around Caledonia finding beauty from the trails along the river… to the back of a funeral home. icon smile Graham and Jennifer

Looking forward to their wedding this summer!

June 6, 2013 Greg and Jiney

A couple weeks ago, I headed down to the New York City area to photograph the wedding of Greg and Jiney. They got married outside of the city at a great venue – Feast at Round Hill. The beautiful home and grounds were the perfect location – rain or shine. And it rained right up until Jiney was to walk down the aisle – and then the sun came through smiling down on these two. A gorgeous day!

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!

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!
