The Ottawa Valley

I can't pretend to call myself a world traveller, but I've been privileged to see some pretty wonderful landscapes in the last few years. Here's a tiny peak into why I think the OttawaValley is the most beautiful place I've ever been. No matter how long I've lived elsewhere, I will always call the The Valley "home".

All of these pictures were taken within ten kilometers of the farm where I grew up.

Abby Gail

I got to meet tiny little Abby Gail when she was only a couple of weeks old. Her proud parents are good friends of ours. She was such a perfect model - gave me a few 'awake' shots, then proceeded to sleep right through the whole photo session, no matter what we did with her.
Congratulations, Shannon & Chris!

Margot & Family

Precious little Margot Joy underwent open heart surgery in June. Just before her big day, I got together with her mom Stephanie, her brother Jude and her sister Violet to take some photos for a Father's Day present for her dad. I'm happy to say that all reports are positive. Margot's surgery went very well and that she's now thriving.

Dana & Bryce

Dana and Bryce make the sweetest couple. I'm very excited to be photographing their wedding next month. Back in July we did a little engagement photo session at "The Ranch". The setting was beautiful - a romantic forest road to a wildflower filled meadow complete with an antique barn. You almost can't even tell that all of us were being eaten alive by all sorts of insects the whole time!

See you guys in October! Can't wait!

More of Rebecca

I just couldn't resist posting another few pictures of precious Rebecca in my new format. I still can't believe we have a baby girl in the family! Congratulations, Janice, Edward, William & Jack!

Farmers at Work

When I was home in the Ottawa Valley for the big 150th Cobden Fair, I visited Ed, William and Jack while they were doing chores at the dairy barn. I captured a few frames of some future farmers at work.

I had been there a little while when Jack looked up at me and said, "Hey, how come you're not dirty?". I guess he figured I was missing out on the biggest perk of coming to the barn.

Nicole & Jason

A while back, I got together with my good friends, Nicole and Jason to capture a few stunning images of them in their wedding gear. It's pretty easy to make beautiful photos when the models are so ridiculously goodlooking!

Welcome Rebecca!

I'm delighted to introduce the newest member of our family, and my first niece, Rebecca Susan born August 22nd. She is as cute as they come and a perfect little model!

What a perfect little darling.

Couldn't ya just eat those toes?!

William and Jack seem pretty smitten with their baby sister!

When I get the rest of them edited, I'll be posting an album on Facebook.
Newborn photo sessions are so much fun. They are so cute, so tiny, so perfect. The parents are so tired, so happy, so proud. I love capturing this time in one's life.
