I do love fall… the colours, the leaves, the crisp air, all of it but I have to admit, I was a bit excited when this mom asked for a more urban session in Calgary this fall.

We were back in Ontario for a couple of weeks this summer and I was able to book a few sessions. This was one of them. Picture this… I drive out to a little community just outside of where I grew up. I’ve photographed this family in the past but it has been years and […]

Seeing as this is the first post on my new site, I think I have a bit of explaining to do… So I sort of went AWOL many months ago. I was still shooting I just sort of took a break from blogging. Putting stuff out into the universe was starting to feel like a […]

One of the best parts of my job is getting to see families over and over again. Watching families grow and kids grow… it’s such a treat. I’ve had the pleasure of photographing this family eight times now! These girls make me smile non-stop. (and Happy fourth birthday to the little girl who started it […]

Five girls… five! And all so very sweet and fun (mom included, that makes six – Dad is the solo male in this tribe).  I’ve had such a great time getting to know this family and photographing their youngest’s first year. This is why I love my job… the people I meet.   My BabyLove […]

One of the best things about my job is the people I meet. People who allow me into their homes, their lives and let me tell their story. This family travelled from New York so we had been in touch for some time before the session and what a treat it was to finally meet […]

No real destination, no concrete plans, just letting the kids play and stopping along the way. After all, isn’t that what summer is all about?

Another final session with one of my Baby love families. I love watching these kids grow up – from either just a bump or a newborn to a full on crawling, sometimes even walking one year old. It’s such a treat. You get to know the parents, the sibling(s) and watch them evolve as a […]

This was my third shoot with this family (the final one of their Baby love package) and just like the first two, it was a blast. It was the winter version of this session – post baby (in fact that baby is now one). Backyard fire, marshmallows, snowball fights and hot chocolate… what could be better?

…well, I say ‘walks’ but with these two there was a bit of running as well. This was my third year photographing this family and every time has been a treat. When you get a hug at the start and end of the session, it confirms why I love doing what I do. These kids […]
