    Sweet Nia

    Long before sweet Nia came into this world, with her brilliant smile and sunny disposition, she was dreamed of. With synchronicity within right timing, the perfect little girl blessed her Dad’s world. She’s so very loved…

    As we were walking down the trail to find pops of amber colour and dreamy golden autumn light, her Dad spoke about how much she has changed his life in the best way. She’s a happy little girl with the sweetest spirit and curious nature. As soon as she’s held to go for a walk, her whole face beams with joy…

    It’s easy to see the connection they share…lucky to have one another.

    Thank you for asking me to capture your beautiful family!

    From my heart to yours,

    W. Family Yearly “School” photos

    Every year, this awesome family asks me to document their kid’s “School” photos. They hang them on their feature wall, updated smiles and bright personalities that shine through their eyes.

    There’s no better feeling than receiving their updated wall photo their Mom sends me. Thank you for asking me to capture your family yearly.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    From my heart to yours,

    Year 14 with the S. Family

    Every year, on the same week-end in September, we meet for family photos. Once again, the weather was on our side, as golden rays of sunshine filtered through trails of gold and amber. The kids have grown so much this year (as every year). They are in the tweenie/teen stage now, where hockey and friends become a big part of their ever changing world.

    Thank you for another great session!

    From my heart to yours,

    The Beautiful B. Family in Fall

    I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Tina over the past year, and she is one beautiful, hard-working Woman. I was excited when she asked me to photograph her beautiful family. ¬†Now, it was pointed out to me by her hubby, that I *may be a ‘lil bit bossy ūüėČ haha! ¬†Thanks for being a great sport!

    I had lots of fun with their family. The kids are adorable and so full of personality….

    Thank you so much for the great afternoon! I hope you enjoy your photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.

    The Fun-Loving G. Family

    Meet the G. Family…

    I was invited out to their beautiful family acreage to capture their fun-loving connection. There’s a whole lot of love and laughter within their family. And some special bonds too…

    They haven’t had family photos in years, and their kids have grown and matured into pretty amazing people.

      

    I immediately respected their connection and adoration for one another…

    We tried to get both dogs in this frame; however, pets are not always the most co-operative!

     

    Thanks again G. Family, I had lots of fun with your family!

    From my heart to yours,

    Generations of Love

    K. contacted me on to book a Generations Photoshoot as a Mother’s Day gift. What a great gift for years to come to celebrate the special connection within this beautiful family.

    It was¬†pretty special¬†to watch the pride and love within Grandma’s eyes as I photographed each special relationship.

    She’s a strong selfless woman who has raised an amazing family full of love…

    Beautiful Brennan Skates

    For quite some time Laurie and I have talked about doing a shoot for her daughter Brennan celebrating her love and talent for skating. ¬†Weather, ice conditions, and one thing or another delayed us. ¬†And then….everything came together on a beautiful sunshiny day. Bren looked so graceful, powerful, happy and beautiful skating while her proud Mom looked on. They have such a close connection, I was very honoured to capture both Bren’s love for skating and their close Mom/Daughter relationship.

    Oh, and it also happens to be Laurie’s birthday today, so I hope these photos bring you much joy on your special day!!! ūüôā

    A Decade of the S. Family’s Love

    I’ve had the privilege and honour of capturing the S. Family’s love for a whole decade! I can’t believe it’s been 10 years since our very first family session together.

    Swe15-024 web

    Each year I don’t think it’s possible for the kids to change that much from the pervious year, but they never fail to surprise me. They both shot right up and D. is sportin’ a few less teeth. As¬†ever they have a very special fun bond.

    At the end of our session together, we both said we had to grab something from the car‚ĶI had a bottle of Merlot and a thank you card for them to celebrate our 10 years together. As I turned around to give it to her, she met me with the most genuine sincere smile as she held a bottle of 10 year old Port and a thank you card for me. ha! Great minds think alike. I’m very thankful that we both cherished this special session and the memories through the years of working together. We’ve grown up together, and I just love that I get to watch your children grow up too. Thank you so much, I’ve loved photographing your family love story over the past decade. Here’s to another 10 years!

    From my heart to yours,

    One Tree, 5 Years of Family Love

    This series summarizes the reason I’m a family photographer (images of the same family from 2010-2015).

    I have the honour of forever capturing ever-changing stories and relationships as each family grows and evolves. One thing remains constant through the years, Love.

    We have no idea a seemingly insignificant moment is actually a cherished memory years later. And those memories materialize from fleeting synapses of time simply because of a photograph.

    I always say family photography found me because of my respect for the love story that lives within families. Who doesn’t love a good story? Isn’t that what life’s all about?

    From my heart to yours,

    Christine

    This beautiful family travelled to see me for their photos, the morning of their session the sky opened up and poured rain. We decided since they had already travelled, we would just hope for the best. The rain stopped for the exact amount of time it took to capture their family love story and made for some fun puddle jumping opportunities….
