New Arrival: Baby Abigail | Mississauga Newborn Photographer

I recently had the pleasure of meeting and photographing such a lovely family who came to me from Mississauga for their newborn session.  Baby Abigail was so good for her photo debut, and I just love the soft and airy feel of the resulting images.  I equally love the parent and family shots — Mom & Dad are just smitten with their baby girl, and that is so clear just by looking at their photographs.  J Family — Thank you so much for choosing me to capture your baby girl’s newborn stage. It truly was a pleasure!


Mommy & Me: Nursing Portraits | Guelph Family Photographer

Earlier this month I hosted a day of “Mommy & Me Nursing Sessions.”  I opted to host these sessions in honour of Canada’s celebration of Breastfeeding Awareness Week, and a portion of the proceeds from each session was donated to the Rogers Hixon Ontario Human Milk Bank, which is an incredible organization that provides breast milk to medically fragile babies in NICU units throughout the province.

I thoroughly enjoyed photographing these sessions. Although the theme of these sessions was “nursing”, you will notice that the real themes portrayed are mutual love, tenderness, and togetherness. Regardless of how one chooses to feed their baby, be it from bottle or breast, there is an unbreakable bond between a mother and child and I love capturing the love and connections between moms and their babes.  I commend these mothers for making the choice to get in front of the camera with their babes. We were able to create beautiful imagery that both moms and tots will be able to look back on with fondness in the years ahead.

Thank you to the mums for trusting me to capture this special bond between your and your little ones. It truly was a pleasure, and looking back through these images fills my heart with joy.


Family of Three | Guelph Family Photographer

I recently had the pleasure of photographing an adorable 2-month-old baby boy, and his parents. Due to his age and stage, we decided to complete the session in two parts — in-studio, where the main focus was on individual shots of him (and a few of he and mom), and then a family session outdoors. Considering two months is a bit of a challenging age to photograph, Tristan was quite cooperative and did great for his first official photo debut! Here are a few of my favourites from the session….

Happy Birthday, Nate! | Guelph Baby Photographer

It was so entertaining to watch (and photograph!) Nate’s Cake Smash session! He loved demolishing his cake, and he had so many cute expressions during the process too! We then followed up with a post-smash bath, which he seemed to enjoy as well. Happy 1st Birthday, Little Man! I wish you much happiness, fun, and exciting adventures in the year ahead!

In the Orchard | Oakville Family Photographer

Although it is always bittersweet to say goodbye to summer, one thing I always look forward to each September is my annual visit to the orchard with my family.  It’s become a bit of a tradition that my kids look forward to each year.  There’s nothing quite like picking a ripe, juicy apple right off the tree!  As it’s a place that I quite enjoy visiting, this year I decided to offer a limited number of apple orchard sessions just outside of Guelph, in Halton Hills.  Over the course of two evenings, I had the pleasure of photographing five beautiful families!  Fortunately we had gorgeous weather AND lovely evening light to work with…and I am so happy with all of the resulting images. Thank to you to all of the families (returning and new!) who joined me in the orchard this year.  I am very much looking forward to offering these sessions again next September!

Here is a peek into one of the orchard sessions from this year, with the delightful M Family…

Seeing Double | Guelph Family Photographer

I recently had the opportunity to work with this beautiful, fun and lively family, which included twin almost-3-years-old identical twin boys.  They definitely kept all of us on our toes!  Our session was originally scheduled for this past June, but with uncooperative weather, sick little boys, and busy summer schedules, it was pushed back until September.  It all worked out well though.  We had a lovely night, yummy light, warm temperatures, and the leaves had just started to change around us, which created a pretty backdrop for our portraits.  I have many favourites from this session, and hope that mom and dad love their images as much as I do!

New Arrival: Baby Emmett | Elora newborn photographer

It was such a pleasure to have the opportunity to work with this beautiful family again! I first photographed them upon the arrival of their first child just over two-and-a-half years ago, and was thrilled when they connected this past summer to book a newborn session for their second child — a baby boy! Baby Emmett did pretty well for his portrait debut, and he even gave us a couple of smiles!
I love capturing baby details!
