    The Beautiful W. Family

    Meet the W. Family…

    Wig1-196 web

    My daughter loves Kimberlee. She was her teacher and the giver of great big hugs. She has a wonderful way with kids.

    As I started shooting their family session, an image of Kimberlee popped into my head, and I knew I had to get this photo of her. Isn’t she stunning?

    and then I turned the focus to the two of them….

    love, love, love…

    And to their good-looking blued eyed kids, whom I immediately loved…

    He’s soon going to be two! ¬†He had us running for the entire session! He’s on the move, full of curiosity and energy.

    This was my first time meeting this family and they are awesome! Mom and Dad are patient and adore Hayden to pieces. The way they look at their little boy holds a whole lot of love and pride.

    Family Time with the B. Family

    Meet the B. Family…

    Bro4-031r web

    I’m proud to say, this family is my family. Kendra is my first cousin. It’s been an honour capturing their special life moments: from their engagement, to their wedding (back when I still shot weddings), to maternity sessions, to newborns sessions, to family photos.

    I wish you could hear L.’s voice. ¬†It’s the cutest voice ever and he talks non-stop! I love his personality, so full of life and curiosity. I can’t wait till baby P. starts talking. I know there’s a cute little voice in there just waiting to pop out.

    One of the things I love about L., is his smile. It’s the EXACT same smile as Kendra’s. Takes me back to our days growing up together.

    Seven Years Capturing the S. Family

    Meet the S. Family…

    swe12-016 web

    This was our 7th year getting together to capture their family love story. We meet on the same week-end every year, and it’s fun looking back through the years to see how the kids have grown and changed.

    I adore how this family makes the time to document the various stages in their lives. When you are in the middle of daily family life, it’s easy to forget that one day you’ll look back at those years and wonder where the time went. Perhaps even forget the “little” things that shape the days. The “little” things become important things because they become memories. To be able to document that is amazing.

    It’s been a little over a year since I photographed their family back when they were anxiously awaiting baby B.’s arrival to their family.¬†And now, she’s One! With a perfect +24 September day, we thought we’d take advantage of the beautiful weather and capture her cake smashing outside. Perfect.

    Three Fun Years of Sawyer!

    Meet Sawyer (I adore this boy)!

    Sawyer 3 yr Triptych web

    I’ve been taking photos of Sawyer and his sister since they were babies. Every year their parents book me for their birthdays to document exactly who they are at each stage of life. The BEST part about this arrangement is their parents give them complete freedom to do whatever they want during their sessions. It’s completely unstructured and I just chase them around for an hour.

    Because they each get their very own birthday shoot, the only tricky part for the kids is that it’s frustrating when it’s not their turn. ¬†Take for example Sawyer’s expression during his sister’s artistic birthday shoot earlier this year…

    9-250 web

    Now it’s Sawyer’s turn and he’s into dump trucks, playing in dirt making mud pies, exploring with walking sticks, and making “alphabet soup potion” in the water.

    He’s lively, inquisitive, energetic, talkative, and 100% ¬†hilarious.

    He was enthralled with making mud pies, until he realized he was dirty…

    Then he beckoned for wipes…immediately. STAT.

    Besides the odd snapshot, they told me they haven’t had family photos since the girls were in Elementary school. I’m so happy they asked me to capture their family for updated photos!

    This was my first time meeting them all, and I was immediately taken by their fun personalities! They had me laughing through out the session.

    This series of photos is a perfect example as to why…

    Little Farm Girl at Heart

    Meet the O. Family…

    Oly3-024 web

    It’s been over a year since we captured Brynn’s newborn session together. ¬†Brynn was born with a full head of hair, and now at 15 months her hair is all the way down her back. I’m completely smitten with her, she’s such a sweetheart.

    Oly3-060 web

    Oly3-061 web

    I have so much respect for their family. There’s an abundance of patience, love, and happiness within it. ¬†They are surrounded by people who adore them simply because they are amazing. I would say they are lucky in love, but it’s not luck…they deserve every bit of it.

    Oly3-033 web

    Oly3-041 web

    Oh my, isn’t her kissy face the most adorable thing you’ve ever seen?!

    Brynn is a little farm girl at heart! She has no fear. She runs full-tilt down hills knowing she will land safely in the arms of her parents (although I’m sure it’s a full-time job keeping up with her!). I wish you could hear her little laugh paired with the sound of her “squeaker” shoes as she ran.

    Welcoming Lucas with Love

    Welcome to the world sweet bright-eyed Lucas.

    12-106 web

    Oh my, he’s adorable! As the G. family walked into my house for his newborn session, I could feel the huge amount of love for this tiny little boy. A few week ago, we met for a maternity session (click HERE to see the post). The girls were excited to finally meet their baby brother and now that he’s here they are full of devotion (and kisses) for him.
