I met Vanessa and Tyler through a virtual bridal show – a first for me! In fact they were one of the first couples I ever met virtually, bridal show or otherwise. From the comfort of my studio, we chatted all things bridal and got to know one another better. At the time I wondered […]

I first met Lindsay and Oliver over zoom, as is the way in the times of covid. They got engaged in 2019 and decided to take some time before they started their wedding plans. They counted themselves lucky because they had decided early not to get married in 2020 but rather, in 2021. And then […]

Sonia and Bobby are a lovely, quiet couple. We met them on a beautiful summer night at the Guelph Arboretum for their engagement session. They quickly became naturals in front of the camera and the night flew by as we soaked up the golden late summer light before it disappeared completely. Sonia has a dance […]

To say that these little ones kept us on our toes would be like saying we’ve had a mildly hot summer in 2021……..what fun we had chasing these two around the farm at sunset! There were visits to the chicken coop and bounces on the trampoline and swinging on the swing and running free with […]

Yin & Yang. That’s what first comes to my mind when I think of these two amazing people and their interaction together. The perfect combination of spontaneous and structured, with a whole lot of passion and excitement mixed in! And did I mention a whole lot of laughter too? This night was fun from the […]

I first met Sylvia and Fernando through friends of theirs (Shannon and Matt) that I photographed at a recent styled shoot. I had great fun photographing Shannon and Matt, when they were the models at an impromptu garden-styled wedding shoot (in a lovely little greenhouse way up high on a hill!) To read about what […]

I’ve known Caitlyn for a long time – I have always loved her personality – she is so bubbly, friendly, upbeat, and positive! She brings such a great energy and tonight was no different.

We had to reschedule Sylvia and Fernando’s engagement multiple times due to covid, but it was well worth the wait! Sylvia and Fernando had originally planned on eloping on April 23rd so we had a March engagement session scheduled (not always an ideal time of year for photos, with it being right between winter and […]

I really love this family! I have taken their photos, together and separate, a few times now to celebrate different milestones and it’s just as fun every time I’m with them! And they have been with me from the very beginning, so supportive, encouraging me along the way and helping me to grow my business. […]

Every now and again a night comes along and the light is just perfect, in every way. That was the night of Lindsay and Oliver’s engagement shoot. Along with your clients, you plan for it, you hope for it, you cross your fingers and toes for it, but sometimes it feels like that light can […]

Deanna and Colton’s story will sound familiar to many of you who introduced precious little bundles of joy into this world in either 2020 or 2021. We had planned to do Deanna and Colton’s maternity photos in February or March of 2021 but that got cancelled because of the provincial lockdown. We thought for sure […]

Not only do I get to do a job that I absolutely love and am passionate about, but every now and again my heart grows extra sizes, even to my own surprise. On those times, it’s without anyone even having to say so, that I feel like I have made a difference for someone. That […]

Amanda and Gavin’s story has truly inspired me and really made me reflect on what it means to be flexible and adapt…….everything has so fundamentally changed this year for so many engaged couples like Amanda and Gavin when planning their weddings and they have each had to make often difficult choices.

I met Deanna in the early summer of last year when she was the maid of honour at her close friend’s wedding in Niagara on the Lake, Ontario.   So it was a wonderful surprise this summer when she and I re-connected on the occasion of her recent engagement and upcoming wedding! I was so […]

What fun we had together on this early morning at sunrise in August! Enticing young ones to wipe the sleep out of their eyes and join us in the field for some wonderful family photos on the farm. We shared some laughs, some giggles and even tickles as this extended family made some new memories. […]

In the midst of record-breaking summer heat (seems we’ve been having a lot of that lately), it was such a privilege for me to ‘mask up’ COVID-19-style and meet this wonderful little family of 4 as they introduced their newest bundle of joy to the world. It is always amazing to me to see how […]

On one of the hottest and most humid evenings at the end of June, Nicole and Andrew were unbelievable sports, coming out to Huron Natural Area in Kitchener for their engagement photos.

It had been on my bucket list for literally ever. That might seem like a huge exaggeration but it’s true. Since I was about 10 years old I dreamed of going to Greece, to seeing the iconic blue domes and those beautiful white-washed church steeples, all of it with the backdrop of crystal blue waters […]

Well, it was a long weekend of unbelievable (and historical) highs on the heat-o-mometer! And it was wedding day at Earth to Table: The Farm for Lulabelle’s Floral Studios. Olwyne and her team got right to work setting up for the day’s wedding both indoors and out. It was quite a feat to keep the […]
