This Mother’s Day has me thinking back to all the gorgeous families I’ve photographed over the years. This sweet family invited me into their home when their daughter was a newborn and I was fascinated by the relationship forming between her and her older brother. So precious.

It was a truly Canadian engagement session: sunshine, rain, and snow all within one fabulous hour. That’s May around here, this year at least! As I recall we were all boiling to death last year at this time, weren’t we? Anyways, Caitlin and Jon were troopers and didn’t so much care about the weather as […]

I would love to look as good as Alexandra when I cry (but that will never happen!!) more importantly though that’s not the only takeaway my heart remembers from this day. Family love and hearts on fire, these two know what’s important to them in life. Little details that make their hearts sing, thoughtful words that […]

She was newly pregnant and as many of us know those early months can be challenging but Debbie powered through and was a lovely bridesmaid for her sister.

Mama in a tutu is the best way to tame these three boys…well…she can try at least! I’ve been photographing these boys since they were in their Mama’s belly and it’s a beautiful thing to see them grow. This was definitely one of those chase-them-around-and-capture-their-joy sessions on a perfect Fall day. It’s pretty easy to […]

Quirky, adorable, and downright fun, Amy and Brad’s evening ceremony at the Orange Gallery at the hip-hop-happenin’ City Centre in Ottawa might just be what the ultimate cocktail party wedding is all about. I met Amy years ago through the wedding industry and immediately fell in love with her. Not only is she an incredible […]

You’d think that photographing newborn twins and their two year old sister would be a lesson in patience but in the case of these little angels it was a lesson in amazement. They were incredibly calm, the picture of sweet perfection. Suggestions to make this kind of a session go as smoothly as it did for these […]
