my beautiful niece celebrating a major milestone. prom! congratulations maddie. xo
'We met in Toronto while Erns was on a 3 month work secondment from South Africa. We met, fell in love, and he left 3 months later.
After Erns went back to South Africa, we kept in touch constantly, even though we didn't think anything would come from it. About 6 months later, we decided enough was enough, and met half way in London. We think of this as our first date. We met in the hotel lobby, and it was like we had never been apart. We went for lunch right away at a cute Italian bistro. We talked like old friends.'
These 'old friends got married on a warm and beautiful summer day last season. Marija and Erns celebrated at Chateau Des Charmes but before their reception they had a 'first look at Centennial Park in Stoney Creek and were then married at their local Serbian Church.
There's too much pretty to squeeze into one blog post so you'll have to visit next week to see their gorgeous ceremony and reception!
i met Amanda in 2010... she was looking for a wedding photographer and what she got was an 'all the important events of my entire life' photographer. we've been there for her engagement photos, the wedding, the maternity and the most recent... the baby. it is such a joy to photograph this woman-she is so full of light and love. she also comes with a pretty handsome life partner...it's hardly work at all! although amanda would argue that anyone who can get paul in front of the camera should be given a lifetime acheivement award. you'll also see a few of pictures of india... she has been at every shoot... and she wasn't about to miss this one either. she hams it up in front of the camera every time i come around... love her!
amanda and paul were about 6 weeks away from meeting their gorgeous little boy when we captured them in their home-what a treasure to have photos of the nursery... of the home thy've made together and the home that is about to change for good.
visit next week and we'll have a few images from baby Jude's newborn lifestyle session! wishing all first time moms a fabulous mother's day weekend! enjoy every sweet moment!
It was a pretty harsh winter for outdoor photos but Tracey, Levi and Caspian braved the cold for a family portrait session at Charles Daly Park. A few of my favourites...
One last look at winter before the spring weather rolls in! In February we celebrated with Naya and Matt at the Pillar and Post in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Is there a more romantic setting for a winter celebration?
Sweetest flower crowns made by Fleurish for these ladies! It was a balmy -4 degrees so we had the chnace to do photos outside in the fresh snow.
Congratulations again Matt and Naya!
