I met this beautiful family on the most gorgeous September evening, shortly before little Adam's first birthday. He was such a sweetie, despite being up so close to bedtime, and gave us so many smiles. His parents, Alissa and Sandro were naturals in front of the camera, and did such a fantastic job keeping their baby boy happy. It was one of the most beautiful outdoor sessions of the fall with all that golden light, and I'm excited to finally be sharing it with you here! Enjoy!
I had SO much fun with the Sproat family during the Saturday morning we spent together. John and Becky welcomed me so warmly into their home, and gave me total freedom to do my thing as I captured all of the antics and fun that unfolded! Jesse and Alexa were silly and adventurous, as you will see from a few of the photos at the park (was I that brave as a child?)! When we returned back home though, they were kind enough to show me a few of their favourite things. Alexa loves cats and Jesse loves pugs, and both love Lego! They also both adore their little white hamster, Fiona, who become quite the star, and actually had some impressive posing skills...although she did poop a lot ;) Becky and John were also game for a few couples shots which made me very happy! All-in-all it was everything I hope for in a family session, and as always, an honour to create these memories for them.
Sometimes when the weather is being a pain and there's too much rain and cloud and I have a bunch of sessions that have to be rescheduled, I start to ask myself why I even bother shooting outside at all?! But then I have sessions like this and I am reminded. Because a gorgeous fall evening + a beautiful and fun-loving family + the golden setting sun = magic. That's what my session with the Morris family was. Audrey and Linden had a classic brother-sister relationship, which I think you can get a feel for in some of these photos! Being only a year apart they have the perfect blend of sweetness one moment and teasing the next. It made for some fun moments! Theresa and Jason are so obviously adored by their kiddos, and I absolutely loved capturing all of the joy and fun that this family brought to our session!
Huge overshare happening in this post, my friends. This beautiful family made my job so incredibly easy. Nine month old Grayson was SO charming, I could have photographed that sweet smile alllll day. Rebecca and Andrew were a lot of fun and knew all the best ways to entertain Grayson as we got closer and closer to bedtime. They introduced me to the best kids playlist on Spotify (Upbeat Children's Songs...give it listen, you won't be disappointed!) and showed me how much fun I missed out on by not letting my husband throw Levi in the air! Our session was so fun and it was a joy to capture all the love between these three.
I met this beautiful family on a gorgeous August evening in High Park. Sweet little Sage was incredibly happy and easygoing which was a pleasant surprise since we were shooting very close to his regular bedtime! We wandered around to a variety of spots in the park, but my personal favourite is under the willow trees next to the water. Natasha and Sean came so well prepared with toys to entertain Sage and a picnic blanket to sit on. It was a fun and relaxed evening with these three and an absolute pleasure for me to capture this stage in their family's history.
I met this beautiful family on a gorgeous summer night for their maternity session. Jenny and Ryan are expecting their second baby boy next month! I had a wonderful time capturing all the love and joy that holds these three together. There was so much laughter, and the many fun antics from 3 year old Justin just brought this session to life. His reactions to his parent's tickling him were so fun! I can't wait to capture their first days with the baby behind Jenny's beautiful bump!
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!
