Marcie, Steve, & Ellie

I just love when I have returning clients!  Not only does is it wonderful to know that they love the work I do, but it’s also wonderful to see them again, and to see how much the little ones have grown in a year!  Last year, when I first met this family, Ellie wasn’t walking yet….now she’s running around and talking away!  My how time flies!!

This year, we decided to have their fall photos done at The Arboretum, not only because of the amazing foliage, but also so they can bring along their fur baby, Caycee!  Literally EVERY PHOTO was perfect so it was near impossible for me to narrow down my favourites for this blog.  If I could put every single photo in, I would….

Marcie and Steve, thank you so much for allowing me to spend a lovely hour with you guys again!  Can’t wait until next time!

The O’Neil’s

Have you ever met a family where you can just feel the love….like really FEEL it?  It happened to me when I met the O’Neil’s.

Lisa contacted me wishing to capture some casual family portraits at their home.  When she mentioned that she had four boys, I was a bit worried, to be honest, about how this would go.  My fears were put to rest right away once I met them.  Four beautiful, well behaved boys, who were stellar during the session!  Might I add that although this session was taken at the end of September, it was over 30C outside, with hardly a cloud in sight!  You would never know it from the photos that they were bothered by the heat.  Genuine smiles all around, and some great belly laughs.  This session was such great fun, and I’m honoured that I was able to be there to capture these memories for them.

Catherine, Adam, Emma and Finn

I cannot tell to you how much I love this family!!  I first met them when they entrusted me to watch their littlest one, Finn, at my home daycare.  He soon became completely part of my family!  Watching him grow during the year and a half I had him in my care was amazing…from crawling, to walking, to starting to talk, to forging lifelong friendships with the other daycare kids.  When news came that his last day with me at my daycare would be the beginning of August, I hoped that we would stay in touch.  So I was thrilled when Catherine contacted me to capture some family photos of them at Petrie Island!

It is evident in these photos the closeness of this family and the pure silliness of both Finn and his big sister Emma….from climbing rocks to chasing seagulls!  So get comfortable because it was near impossible for me to narrow the photos down to just a few!

Charlie

I guess it’s only fair that, since I did a photo shoot with Maya the other weekend, that I do the same for my eldest daughter, Charlie.  A few locations were thrown around but we finally decided on Hog’s Back.  Brought back many memories of me going there with my parents when I was her age.  We got a few shots in before her allergies set in and we had to leave…but not before enjoying an ice cream treat at the canteen!!

…and Brigitte Makes Four!

I was so excited to do this Newborn Lifestyle Shoot, not only because I love newborns, (who doesn’t), but because baby Brigitte has a big brother, Johnathan, who is 2.5 years old!  The other newborn shoots I’ve done had no siblings, so I knew this would be a bit different, and I was looking forward to it.  Needless to say this family was adorable and because Brigitte was their second, they were so much more relaxed, which made for a great photoshoot.  I hope you enjoy this small sample of their gallery.

The Bigney’s!

It was a cold snowy day up at the cottage, but we sucked it up like true Canadians!  This Boxing Day shoot was so much fun!  They didn’t take things too seriously and because of that, I captured their true nature.  I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them!  Happy New Year everyone!

Christmas Eve Shoot

Twas the night before Christmas, and what better way to spend it than with this lovely extended family at the Museum of Nature for a family photo shoot!  They were seriously the most adorable family ~ I had such a blast!  And the kids were troopers, especially since all they wanted really wanted to do was go see the dinosaurs…and really, who could blame them!  🙂

Susan, Jan, and the Fam

Way back when, I used to call Susan my boss.  Now I call her my friend, along with her partner Jan, and their beautiful, and very tall, daughter, Rae!  I had so much fun photographing these ladies, along with Jan’s parents, on this gloomy Saturday morning. Their smiles and laughter definitely made up for the lack of sun!

Family Session at Watson’s Mill

The weather was great, albeit windy, for this wonderful family session at Watson’s Mill in Manotick.  Another gorgeous family that I got the pleasure of photographing!  I’m a lucky gal!  🙂
