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!
These babies are so loved! I’m honoured to have captured these maternity portraits for Brittany and Bill who are expecting TWINS in December after 4 years of IVF. We had so many laughs during their session. Brittany you are GLOWING. Such a beauty – Bill you’re a lucky guy!! These two are going to be amazing parents! So much love for each other! Best of luck Brittany! I can’t wait to see these two little ones!
Nicholas is two! We captured his birthday portraits a day before his birthday. After seven portrait sessions this little guys is a professional! And we finally got an image of Isabella and Nicholas together!
This little Tom Sawyer just happens to be my nephew. (How lucky am I?!) It was one of those last minute shoots where everything just fell into place. The location, the outfit, the theme – all on the fly. I love photographing my niece and nephews because I get 100% complete creative freedom! This “fishing” scene is something we were talking about back in March and again briefly before this session. So when Hunter asked if he could go fishing we were ALL over that! He had fun and was completely co-operative. WIN WIN!
He loved his suspenders. And somehow never learnt that snapping them on himself hurts, quite entertaining.
This handsome little gaffer. I know I’m his Aunt but I think he’s pretty darn adorable! As much as I love every other photograph from this session, this one is my favourite. SO HUNTER! Every year I take a photograph with my niece and nephews in the same pose. It’s great to look back on every year and see how they’ve grown. I love these three with all of my heart! My favourite portraits are the natural ones. The one on the right completely represent them at this age.
Cole gets more adorable every time that I see him. He was so good for his 9 month portraits! We got so many smiles, and this time – no grandma required! Those eyes! I had to post Cole’s adorable little faces. I can’t wait to photograph his birthday portraits in a couple of months!
I had the pleasure of photographing Joy and Jayde. It was so interesting to see their completely different personalities come out – even at only a couple days old! Joy is on the purple and Jayde is on the grey!
Best friends. Joy
Jayde On my way to the session I came up with the idea for this set up and stopped to pick some wildflowers. I’m so happy with the way it turned out! I love the similarities and the differences that suit each girl perfectly.
I’ve been photographing Isabella for FOUR YEARS! It’s been so special witnessing her personality develop though her portraits. One thing that hasn’t changed – that adorable nose wrinkle!! What is a birthday shoot without confetti?! Isabella LOVES to dance! There’s something about this photograph, even though the composition is all wrong, I love how it perfectly expresses her free spirit! Four years, nine portrait sessions.
