Meet Reshma and Irfan. As soon as Reshma and I started emailing one another, I knew we would be fast friends! Mainly because she suggested we play Friends trivia together (ummm, YES!) and was a fan of Kawartha Dairy ice cream, but also because her kind and laid back personality was apparent even through email. I met Reshma and Irfan on the day of their baby shower at a family member's home, which as you can see was a gorgeous space and had an incredible backyard backing onto a small lake! Such a fun place to shoot! I can't wait to meet the sweet baby boy inside that belly and capture their brand new family love in a few short days!
I had the pleasure of meeting Andrea and Joe in early June, on a gorgeous golden evening, to capture their maternity photos. They are one of the few couples I've worked with who are saving baby's gender for a surprise, and I can't wait to meet him or her when baby arrives this summer! These two were very patient with me as we navigated some seriously gross mud (thanks to a rainy spring!), and when I had to take my sandals off to shake out all of the bugs. I think it may be time to invest in a good pair of rubber boots! But this beautiful couple and the gorgeous light more than made up for all that. I look forward to the arrival of their baby and capturing their first days as a family of 3!
After having to cancel our original session date due to thunderstorms, we ended up with a gorgeous evening in May to photograph Jaimie and Jill's maternity session. We wandered around High Park with their handsome fur baby, Benson, and got some beautiful shots while also managing to stay away from the terrifying Canadian geese that were nested everywhere! These two were so relaxed and fun to hang out with, and Jill even kept her cool when some random teenagers decided to park themselves directly where we were shooting and watch her model. This girl has nerves of steel. I can't wait to capture their baby boy who is due to make his appearance any day now!
Last week I had the pleasure of shooting some maternity photos for my grade-school friend Courtney and her husband Ren! I can't even remember when Courtney and I last connected, so when she got in touch to see if I could capture her maternity and newborn photos I was thrilled. They brought me to a gorgeous area in the Uxbridge trails (its the trail capital of Canada!). I can't believe I lived in Uxbridge for half my life and have never been to this spot. It was a beautiful sunset session and we had so much fun. They brought their dog Jack and he was basically an angel. I'm sad I didn't find an opportunity to sneak him into my car and bring him home with me! All jokes of puppy-napping aside, I can't wait to meet their sweet baby soon and find out if it's a boy or girl!
