The Torgerson Family | Toronto Family Photographer

Although I tend to shoot most of my sessions around the Guelph area, I am certainly willing to travel as well! Recently I had the opportunity to travel to Toronto to meet up with my beautiful friend Nadine and her gorgeous family. The location we used for our session wasn’t too far from their home near the Lakeshore. I had the privilege of photographing them one year ago, and it was so nice to have the opportunity to see the five of them again and to see how much the little ones had grown and changed. I adore this family — their fun personalities and their style! Thank you N & C for having me capture some updated images of you and your wonderful family!


Baby Finn | Kincardine Newborn Photographer

This wee man and his wonderful family travelled 2-hours one-way to have me photograph Finn’s newborn session. I also had the priviledge of photographing Finn’s older sister Paige as a newborn, about 2 1/2 years ago. I am so humbled and grateful for the continued support from this little guy’s parents, and I am honoured that I have been given the opportunities to photograph their growing family. Finn was such a good boy for his session, and I have so many favourites to share! Thank you K & C for making the trek to Guelph to have me photograph your precious baby boy.  It has been an absolute pleasure capturing your beautiful, growing family!

Baby Milestone Session: Meredith – 6 months | Waterloo Baby Photographer

I had the priviledge of photographing Meredith to mark her 6-month milestone. Although this is already a pretty photo-worthy age, it was an extra memorable time for her parents, as Meredith learned to sit unsupported AND began sleeping through the night! Meredith was such a good girl for her session and I just love the smiles that we got from her. Here are a few of my favourites from her session…

New Arrival: Baby Leonie | Guelph Newborn Photographer

I have been anxious to share some favourites from this newborn session, and now that Leonie’s parents have had an opportunity to view their images, I can! I loved having the opportunity to meet with this family for their in-person session reveal. I loved hearing the “oooh”s and “aaah”s as they saw their images for the first time….something that I miss when sending out online proofing galleries. I always have a case of the “butterflies” as I press the ‘send’ button, so having the chance to be there in-person to present the images and to see my clients’ reactions and get immediate feedback is a wonderful experience for me. Meet the beautiful Leonie at 10-days new…


Expecting: Marion | Guelph maternity photographer

I loved getting to know this couple during their maternity session, and have since had the opportunity to meet and photograph their precious baby girl (Stay tuned – her newborn session is up next!) I think that this mama-to-be was just glowing and I have so many favourites from her session. These are just a few…

Baby Milestone Session: Axel | Guelph Baby Photographer

Axel and his mom recently came into the studio for a Baby Milestone Session, just shy of his 8-month milestone. I had such a wonderful time with these two! Axel was an absolute dream to work with and we were able to capture a variety of his expressions — especially the smiley and more serious ones. Axel’s mama also requested a nursing shot, and I was more than happy to oblige. I think that particular shot ranks as one of my all-time favourites, and I hope that his mama is able to look at it in the future and reminise about this special time once her wee one is a bit older.

Without further ado, the very handsome and adorable Axel…

Three | Guelph Family Photographer

When you book an outdoor family portrait session with me, not only are you going to walk away with some beautiful imagery featuring you and your loved ones,  but you’re also signing up for a  fun and memorable experience.  When little ones are a part of the session, I like the session to have a playful and fun vibe to it!  I will act goofy, play some silly games and my usual quiet nature will likely go out the window…all in an effort to make your child comfortable with me.  I want to gain their trust and allow them to let loose, so I am able to capture them naturally as they are.

This recent family session was no different.  It was all about fun, games, smiles and laughter!  After all, when you add a 3 year-old to the mix, it is bound to be a fun time!  I thoroughly enjoyed my evening with this family, and I could literally share every shot from their session.  I loved them all!  I hope that this little guy’s family enjoys their images as much as I do!
