Sigh, when did my little niece become and adult! Talk about 9 going on 19. One of the benefits of buying all of her clothes is that I get to dress her however I want – which is usually exactly like me. I wish this outfit came in my size. (Who am I kidding. I also have that vest, thanks Old Navy!) I drive by this field so often and was struck by how beautiful the purple flowers were so I couldn’t help myself! She gets it from me. #sorrynotsorry I love this carefree laugh. Geesh!! STOP GROWING UP! At every stage I think it’s the best age ever and then the next stage happens and THAT is the best age ever. Smart, kind, sassy and such an old soul. I just love this kid so much!
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!
My beautiful friend is due with baby number two! Tara and Derek were a bride and groom of mine back in 2012. Since then we have become close friends and I’ve photographed TWO maternity sessions, Alexis’ newborn and first year of life, various Springs, Halloweens and Christmas’ and I’m to say that I will be there to capture the birth of this little one with my first ever birth session – wish us BOTH luck!
Sheena was gifted Maternity and Newborn portraits, she is one luck lady! She was a little nervous about her portraits, but she totally rocked her session. After some TLC from Hair by Ash and Lashed by Courtney we were on our way to Botanical Gardens.
Sheena and Myles were so adorable together, I love when Dads get involved with the session! These two (and a half) plus that setting sun, perfection!
Gosh! How adorable are these two, seriously!!
I can’t wait to meet their little girl in a few short weeks!
The votes have been counted – and double counted – and the winner is in! Congratulations to this little Ghostbuster, Chase! It was a very close race this year with the runner up only 9 votes behind. Thank you to everyone who came out to the mini sessions and participated in the costume contest, it’s been another great year!
Here are some more of Chase’s portraits. I love his face in this photograph. So sweet!
Lucas is one! This guy had so many smiles for me and kept me on my toes – he’s on the move!! We headed outside to get a couple fall portraits before we let Lucas dive into his cake. The colours were perfect! I love the drool in this photograph, doesn’t that cake look delicious! Lucas wasn’t too sure about his cake. He didn’t like the taste but still kept going back for more. I always love capturing this post cake detail shot. Those toes get me every time.
I finally got around to editing these portraits of my niece from a month ago. Just another addition to her life series. Eliza always looks forward to these because it means she gets new clothes! And I look forward to having new portraits every 6 months. I’m not sure where she gets her attitude from. Just kidding, she gets it from me! These are the images I always love best when I’m photographing my niece and nephews, the ones with the silly faces they make every day. “Auntie can I twirl my hair and pretend I’m thinking about a boy?” Waaaaaa she’s growing up too quick! I love this girl to the moon and back!
I am over sharing from this maternity session because I am in LOVE with this beautiful family! The weather and the sun was perfect – a little chilly but Emily was a trooper. The sun did an amazing job making these portraits magical. For real, how cute are these two?! I can’t wait to meet their little one! The sweetest little family. Emily has the perfect bump, I can’t get over it. You’d never know she was 33 weeks. Oh hello sun, you’re perfect.
In a few short weeks Emily and Jay will get to meet their new addition, good luck!
Ghostbuster and the Stay Puft Marshmallow!
