    Six Years of Photographing the S. Family

    Meet the S. Family.

    6-032 web

    I love spending time with this special family. We go way back…we grew up in the same home town and spent our school years together. I have many childhood memories of Merrilyn; giggling in school hallways and skating on the pond just steps from her home for her birthday parties.  And now we meet for photos on the same week-end in September for the past 6 years and talk about our own kid’s venture to school.  It’s been a year since I’ve seen the kids, and what a difference a year makes.

    Little D. is a big boy now and wow can he run. He’s full of energy and determination.

    Miss B. is a sweetheart.  She is tender, full of imagination, and has the BEST infectious giggle.

    I love that they have a visual story of one year’s growth within their family.

    It was so good to see you again!

    The G Family’s Love and Gratitude

    Let me introduce you once again to the G. Family.

    9-157 web

    I’ve photographed this loving family many times over the past three years as their lives have grown in love and gratitude.  It’s always a pleasure!  Every time I photograph them, I leave with a full heart and a big smile. They are amazing.

    The girls are so sweet together, and their close sisterly bond is beautiful.

    Sawyer is Two!

    Meet Sawyer.

    It’s been a year since he smashed a cake in the park, the very same park we met when he was a newborn.

    And now he’s two. Full of spirit, curiosity, laughter, and energy. He’s quite the talker now! I was shocked when he ran up to me and said “Hi Christine!” He’s such a sweetheart.

    I love that his shoelaces are untied in the photo below. It accurately depicts exactly how much energy he has…he runs his laces loose.

    The K. Family One Year Later

    Meet the K. Family.  It’s been a year since our last session together.  One of my favourite parts about being a family photographer is that I’m asked to document a family’s story and so much changes in just a year. The kids grow in size and personality and their parents fall even more in love with each of their amazing little personalities.

    These girls pack a lot of personality in their small frame.

    Ava had an idea for the end of our session to dress up as pirates. She has a vivid imagination and her parents foster her great imagination with confidence and love. Perfect. Thank you for the entertaining evening!

    Jayden’s Cake Smash

    I haven’t seen Jayden since I took his newborn pictures.

    At just 10 days old, he was already full of personality and now that he has turned one (just yesterday), his personality has grown right along with him.

    It’s his birthday, he can cry if he wants too…
