Emma and Christian brought the sunshine the day we met them at their engagement session – and they brought the sun both literally and figuratively. Rain was threatening all day and it had been cold and damp and misty – exactly the kind of day that makes for a miserable engagement session, the kind where […]

I think it would be very safe to say that Michelle and Chris are a joyful couple. They just exude happiness and radiate positivity! In fact, it is really really hard for them to stop smiling or laughing! And this comes across in ALL of their photos! Whether they were learning to dip, strolling down the […]

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 […]

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’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. It was a real pleasure to get to meet her fiancee Jake for the first time at their engagement session…….while at […]

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 […]

As photographers, this is one of the questions we get asked most often after couples and families book with us…..what should I/we wear to our photography session? No matter what you wear, you want to feel confident and relaxed so first and foremost start with what you love! The next thing to consider is the […]

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 […]
