The best part of my job is getting to watch families grow and expand. What starts off as just a couple, turns into a family of three, then four…. then grandkids etc. It’s been a pleasure working with Chelsey and Dave for a few years, and watching their family of three turn into a family of four (with a second baby boy for that matter!). How cool is it, that I also got the opportunity to photograph Dave’s parents and sister too? I love watching the big groups get together and helping them capture some of those really fun moments when everyone is running around. This Blue Jays family was great and little Zach was such an angel for this shoot 😀
Bennett <3 What can I say about this little boy? He is one of the strongest little fighters I’ve ever met. He was born on a lovely April day. What joy! I even got to hold him at less than 24 hours old! However, a few days later he was sadly diagnosed with a heart condition that wasn’t seen on his prenatal anatomy scan. He was rushed to sick kids hospital in Toronto and underwent open-heart surgery, tests and lots and lots of medication. Mom and Dad stuck by his side for weeks, watching as Bennett slowly started to recover from his surgery. It took a little bit of time, but once everyone was back home, settled, and healed, we were able to get in a little session of this little fighter! Welcome to the world Bennett. It’s pretty awesome here, despite the rocky start. You will have many stories to tell as you get older, and I’m sure your Mom and Dad will recount to you the scary and sad emotions they went through for those first few weeks!! Much love xoxo.
Another beautiful spring blossom session to blog! We met on the early side of a beautiful Saturday morning. I remember it being stinking hot at 10 AM and thinking…this is perfect (other than the beads of sweat starting to form on our faces). What a lovely family to photograph! Little Elly was so proud to show off her baby brother, Ethan. And what a cute pair of blue-eyed little ones they make.
Spring blooms are one of the times of year that I look most forward to. New life, beautiful colour, and that smell of freshly opened flowers in the air. This session is the embodiment of spring sessions! So much pink EVERYWHERE! I absolutely love it (especially since pink is my favourite colour). The Potts clan is very special to me. Spending an hour photographing them didn’t seem like work for one minute. Everything was fun, with so much laughter and you could tell that everyone was genuinely happy to be there. This family hadn’t had photos done together in many years, and I am so honoured that they chose me to help capture this point in time <3 You guys rock. Seriously.
I love snow. I don’t necessarily love the cold though. But I think the best part about this session was spending time with Paul’s parents, who came down from the UK for a visit. They have never seen, nor experienced snow like this before. It was so much fun to see them all interacting and playing in the snow like kids (especially when Mr and Mrs Campbell started throwing some snowballs at each other!!).
