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...
7 years married and still madly in love...
i could pinch him. he's a tough one to crack but as soon as you win him over...he'll call you his best friend. the way to his heart: thomas trains and apple slices.
he reminds me so much of his dad and i think he looks so much like mom. nash... put your socks back on...i'm gonna pinch your toes!
what i remember from doug and paige's wedding over a year and a half ago was the incredible sky... you never know what to expect in june and we had gorgeous weather all day, with a magical stormy sky during for a few of their pictures. you can go back and take a look here at their wedding photos-i just did and was reminded of all the real and authentic and lovely moments that happened throughout their day-we loved celebrating with them! so you can imagine how thrilled i was to hear from paige last month when she inquired about a family session when they return to Canada to visit from their home in Dubai. it's been a year and a half and this would be keelin's first Canadian winter experience. i'm so glad we had a white christmas-she's enjoyed ice skating...outdoors, tobaganning, building a family of snowmen... and we learned that frothy hot chocolates at the end of a chilly photo session are the best for making mustaches!
it was lovely catching up with you guys and i'm a big fan of making this a tradition everytime you visit!! enjoy the rest of your visit here! xo
while i have thoroughly enjoyed every stage that our kids go through... there are times that i really miss the early childhood days... i had one of those moments this morning. i opened the back door to let Lola out and, not surprisingly, she took off into the neighbour's yard-i'm lucky theiy're so gracious! i chased her and within seconds their back door flew open and i was greeted by two very happy and spirited, beautiful kids... hudson and sarah came running over to greet
me Lola... if only the dog appreciated their sweet faces as much as i do. i know there may be times that the parents of these little fireballs can't wait for the days that they sleep in, are done teething, and can have adult conversations (although i've spoken with sarah and hudson several times and they are fluent in adult language)...
but for now. enjoy this stage! little marin and her wonderment!
this is where erin and wes married... i didn't know that when i chose the location-how things have changed over the years!
i know where i can find a good assistant! happy shooting hudson!
enjoy the weekend! make a few memories!
