A couple years ago I photographed Jonathan’s older brother Anthony. I was so thrilled when his mama reached out to me again for baby #2! When photographing a sibling I always try to keep it similar so they go great together hanging on a wall, but also make them unique so the portraits are their own! Jonathan looks so much like Anthony in this photograph! And baby makes four!
I love this family. The only time I ever get nervous before a session is when I am photographing friends for the first time. I always feel so much pressure to get the right shots, the perfect shots. But these guys nailed it! When you love your brother so much you just have to put him in a choke hold. That portrait makes me laugh, 100% accurate to their relationship. Parents always get stressed out when children don’t behave how we want for the session, but I always get some good ones! When I photograph my niece and nephews, the candid shots are my favourite. So natural and so them, as they grow – those are the photographs that I love the most because it reminds me of how they truly were at that age. I love this photograph, reminds me of an album cover. Ruby, the sweetest daddy’s girl! She is the BIGGEST suck and is so patient with the boys.
Callum is the newest addition to the Savage family. He has two of the best big sisters around! So much love for this little guy! Little baby smirks. A gassy baby is a happy baby! Well, not really, but it does make for some nice portraits! I just love these curly bum shots! Callum was wide awake but quite content taking in the world.
Isaac arrived early and was already a month old when I captured his portraits. He was still as sleepy as ever though! We even managed to get some great open eyed portraits – and smiles! I love capturing all their little details. Wide-eyed and content. Isaac posed himself, he’s a professional already! I love this colour green with his red hair, goes together perfectly!
Little River was full of smiles and put up quite the fight. But we got the sweetest open eyed portraits of this handsome little man. I loved taking portraits of River and his big sister. She loves her little brother so much! Bright eyed and adorable. I am so amused by these portraits. River decided to poop – without a diaper – mid pose. Priceless!
I’m so happy for this beautiful family. I can’t wait to see them again.
I photographed Monica’s maternity portraits and was so excited to meet Naomi! She is the sweet little babe! Her features are so sweet I just wanted to snuggle her for the entire session! I photographed her session Thanksgiving Monday, her grandparents and their visitors were having brunch Caesars – and one was waiting for me when I finished the session – BEST CLIENTS EVER! They’re my FAV, and my post wedding ritual. Can every newborn session end with a Caesar? Mmmmmm….
Naomi was so content while she was awake and being posed, which rarely happens, and made for some adorable portraits! AND she had so many smiles! Come ON! How adorable is this?! I can’t wait to watch Naomi grow!
Cole is ONE! Wow. What a year it has been. It seems like yesterday that I was photographing Cole’s newborn portraits – and here we are at his cake smash birthday session! Doesn’t he have the best blue eyes?! Gorgeous! After the cake smash we called in the clean up crew. Maple is the best big sister ever!
Little Harper was in the studio a couple weeks ago. Such a teeny little girl with the sweetest features! She was so good to me, I loved this session!
I was so happy that I finally got to use this headband! Who says baby girls can’t be photographed in blue? Safe in Daddy’s arms. This family is so sweet!
It’s that time of year again! I can’t believe I’ve done this for 7 years now. These mini sessions are hands down my favourite of the year. I love seeing all the effort that is put into the costumes! Good luck to all the adorable kiddos!

A late night blog post because I really can not help myself! Everly is 9 months old – and she gets cuter by the day! Her mama got lost trying to find this field – too many times to count – she called me, Everly SCREAMING in the backseat and I thought to myself “oh boy, here we go”. Eventually I went to find her and she followed me to this field. Everly came out of the van with a smile on her face. The shoot started an hour later than it was supposed to, but that meant that the sun was PERFECT. This session could not have worked out any better! Kudos to Tara for not letter her frustration come through and transfer to Everly. This girls eyes – just stunning!
I never post straight out of camera images. I always adjust the colour and brightness to suit my personal style, but this image was just way too perfect not to share as is. After a short little drive we ended up here, fit so perfectly with the theme we have going for her first year sessions. Her mom made this dress because she couldn’t find what she was picturing in a store. SO PERFECT. I love Everly’s eye squint, her big sister does the same thing when she is really happy! Ahhh, one more session to go to complete her first year package. But I’m not sure how I can top these. She was so perfect!
