spring babe :: toronto baby photographer

Something about spring and new babies… they just seem to be the perfect fit for each other don’t you think? And this mama and babe are equally made for each other. A gift from above. Mama’s fallen in love with every little detail and she already knows them by heart. I could hear her whispers as he lay in her arms, as she stroked his cheek and pointed out his tiny feet and generally adored him from tip to toe! Wishing the very best to baby G and his mommy and daddy. Your spring baby is a sweet one… and very handsome too!!

old friends :: ancaster newborn baby photographer

This was the most special session I’ve had in a while. 8 years ago (i think?) I was Mommy and Daddy’s wedding photographer (the famous wedding-party-on-the-school-bus-wedding!) and over the years, I’ve been lucky enough to watch big brother grow and capture him at various stages (what a fun kid!) And now, they’ve added a new baby girl to the family! What a treat to visit their beautifully decorated home and go back in time through the various photos hung on the walls. I forgot about some of my favorites… one baby bum shot in particular lol! Big brother was featured in The Toronto Star with his cake smash photos (see that post here) back in 2011. Goodness time flies! Now he’s a handsome and caring young boy… totally over the moon about his new little sister. Thank you so much to the P-M family for inviting me to capture life’s highlights. Your highlights have truly become some of mine! xo

black and white :: oakville children’s photographer

It’s that time of year when colour is on our minds for photographs… pretty scenes of orange, red and yellow with pops of citrus green still holding onto summer. But even though that’s what we have our sights set on at the start on our fall sessions, sometimes we still end up falling in love with the simplicity of black and white. To quote Ansel Adams, “…one sees differently with color photography than black-and-white…” Certainly a good black and white has the ability to pull at our heartstrings in a special way. I think maybe because it strips away any distracting elements and leaves us with the simplicity of texture and expression, which to me, is the perfect recipe for an emotional photograph. And then there’s the practical side of me, that feels relieved to hang a black and white image in pretty much any room without worrying about matching my decor!:)PS – lots of colour still to be seen from this session M&S!

when they slow down :: oakville children’s photographer

Children can be busy, that’s for sure. But when they slow down, even for a second, we can see their little hearts beating. That’s why I like photos… they help us to notice what’s been there the whole time. 

genuine :: georgetown family photographer

There’s one kind of family photo that I really aim to get… and when a client arrives with that same ideal in mind, I know we are set! She wasn’t interested in a super-posed family shot with every piece of hair in place and smiles pasted on. She preferred a reflection of their family with honest expressions in a loose arrangement. And so we ended up with a shot that captures everyone pretty genuinely I think… Big sister’s sparkly enthusiasm, the littlest’s tonsil-showing energy, brother’s relaxed-but-not-restrained grin… Daddy happily adoring and Mommy so beautifully thrilled to have her family doing this for her…  I think we got it!
