Luke is ONE!

What?! How did that happen?  This year has passed more quickly than any other year. 
My baby went from this:

to this!

We call him Luker.
He is a happy child who has a smile for everyone.
These days it's the face-wrinkled-up kind of smile, all teeth and scrunchy nose.
He can crawl faster than me.
He bolts for the stairs when the gate is left open.
He has three words - Ball, Bath and Bye.
They all sound like this: BA!
He also says Da-da, Ma-ma and Pa-pa.
He gives high fives and blows kisses.
He adores his big brother.
He has learned how to get his way.
He still has almost no hair, but what's there is blond. (?)
He eats almost as much as me.
Ok, that's not true. I eat a lot. But he eats like a champ.
I love him.

Pam & Max - Engagement

It was an honour to meet Pam & Max the other day when we captured their love in their engagement photo session.  I'm excited to say that I'm photographing their wedding next summer. This will be my first wedding in the Montreal area, so that's pretty awesome.  They are super sweet and funny and fun and their wedding will be a blast!

Emily & Colin - After

After the ceremony and family photos we snuck away to do a few photos with just Emily & Colin.  Colin had it all planned out to recreate the iconic painting American Gothic.  He even had the pitchfork at the ready!

A big thank you again to Angela Stone Butterworth for helping me out with this wedding. She really is an excellent photographer!

Emily & Colin - During

The front yard of Emily's parents' farmhouse was the ideal setting for this wedding. The weather was perfect... well, it was perfect for the guests who were in the shade.  The bride and groom were standing in the bright sun. The guests brought bells to ring to celebrate the happy couple. The groom's sister in law read an adorable story about two little dinosaurs.  Sweet.

Emily & Colin - Before

Emily and Colin are sweet, humble and full of laughter.  Their wedding ceremony was a most casual affair held on the front lawn at her parents' farm.

For this wedding I had the help of a wonderful photographer, Angela Stone Butterworth, who you may remember from when she was a beautiful bride bride herself. Thanks Ange, your work is beautiful!

Cobden Fair

My hometown has a population of one thousand.  Every year at the end of summer there is the Cobden Fair. Horses, cattle, sheep, exhibits, fair food, rides and cotton candy. Perfect.

Other than weddings, I haven't been asked to do a lot of event photography but when I was asked to photograph the Cobden Fair so that the Agricultural Society could have some pictures for promotional use, I had to say yes.

Please enjoy just a few of my favourite images.

Nicola & Dave Part III

The rain after the ceremony didn't dampen anyone's spirits. Afterall, it's almost impossible to untie a wet knot.

Baby Loïc had a bit of an eventful start to his life.  His loving parents have perservered, though, and he is now a thriving four-month-old.  Here are a few pictures from our newborn photo session when he was just 23 days old.

Happy 4-Month 'Birthday', Loïc!

Love for Luke

Although Luke is almost four months old now, I wanted to share a few more images from his newborn session when he was six days old.  He has changed and grown so much!  You forget so quickly what they were like when they were so tiny. With all the fatigue and emotions and mostly just trying to get through it, you forget how precious that time was. Newborn photos are so special to me.  Everyone should get them done!

Kiza & family

Here are a few of my favourite pictures from a quick session I did with an old university friend who was expecting darling little Dexter at the time.  His big sister was getting pretty excited to meet her new little sibling.

Hockey at the farm

Apologies for the long hiatus.  The photography business is a bit slow in the dead of winter and well, I have had better things to do!  My little family is keeping me quite busy.

Speaking of family,  here is a sample of a little session I did with my brother and his family on the awesome hockey rink in their yard.  My brother lives on the farm where I grew up with his wife and two growing boys.
I'm in the process of printing up a selection for them to put in a beautiful frame my husband made.  This was all a Christmas gift from my mom to my sister in law. Follow all that? Don't worry, me neither. Just enjoy the pictures!
