Baby Brother | Guelph newborn photographer

I know I have said it before, but I just love watching my client families grow!  I had the privilege of photographing this couple’s first born as a wee babe, and have had the opportunity to photograph her since.  I was thrilled to learn that they were expecting a baby boy, Benjamin, this past October.  This little guy is just so handsome, and I look forward to watching him grow and change in the coming year!  Thank you again C & S for choosing me to photograph your baby boy.  You have such a beautiful family!

Introducing John! | Baden newborn photographer

I had been anxiously awaiting John’s arrival for several months. His mama and I used to work together, and I was thrilled and honoured when she asked if I would photograph her anticipated arrival in September. Baby John came to see me at 15 days new. Being an overdue baby, and also coming around the 2-week growth spurt mark, I anticipated that he might be perkier than the typical newborn and I was right. John did not want to miss a thing! We did manage to get a few sleepy shots though, and his Mom & Dad deserve a big pat on the back, as it was definitely a group effort. Thank you so much A & G for choosing me to capture your baby boy — he is just perfect! Introducing the very handsome ginger, John…

Proud | Guelph Baby Photographer

I am pleased to share that one of my images has earned me a second place standing in the “Babies” category in the recent National Association of Professional Child Photographers International Image Competition.  I am very proud of this accomplishment, and am very grateful for the recognition.  I certainly owe my lovely client a great big ‘thank you’ –  she trusted me, allowed me to push my own creative boundaries, and provided me with the opportunity to capture this special moment between her and her son.  To her, I am truly grateful.

The Mock Family | Owen Sound Family Photographer

I have known this family for many years, and have now photographed their extended family on two occasions. I loved having the opportunity to photograph them on the shoreline of Georgian Bay, just outside of my hometown of Owen Sound. Although some Smarties & Skittles were required for bribery, a lot of fun was had, and I am thrilled with the shots that we got that evening. Thank you again Mock Family for having me photograph your beautiful family!
