These two are the best of friends and happen to have their birthdays close together! And did I mention they're cousins?? This, of course, definitely called for a double cake smash birthday photo session! It started with photos in Smith's beautiful backyard summerhouse and finished with his and hers birthday cake smash. So cute! They certainly know how to ham it up for the camera and it was absolutely delightful getting all these photos. These are smiles that light up a room and it was just as fun seeing their parents totally into the photo shoot too (behind the scenes!). Happy birthday Smith and Aneleigh!
Francine and Aron's love story started many years ago and part of their strong bond has been put together through countless days spent at the lake. They have a comfortable, steadfast and enduring love, and thanks to their closeness, that love was easily captured at their engagement photo session this past summer. What a gorgeous backdrop to such a great story of love. These two crack me up and are so fun to be around but they also remind me of how strong love endures through the many seasons of life. This newest chapter for them includes many new exciting adventures: marriage and a new baby due to arrive this winter! Together with their dog, we wandered along the edge of the lake and hiked up through the woods. The scenery was breathtaking, and best of all, we came across a deer and her babies! What a beautiful part of Canada's wilderness - absolutly perfect for celebrating a beautiful connection of love. Congratulations you two!
If there's one thing that I love to be treated with, it's a bouquet of intentionally well-designed fresh flowers. My go-to place for just that is Oak & Lily on Corydon Avenue where Tatiana has created a dream floral shop. I've been a fan of Tatiana's work for a while now, and since having her join me on a few of my previous creative projects, I've been nothing but growing in admiration for the talent she has. Her floral creations are unique, dynamic and beautiful. Her shop is inviting, quaint and filled with lovely items. And best of all, she's the sweetest person ever! It was truly a pleasure taking these photos for her - highlighting her shop, photographing her floral creations and taking a few portraits of her as well. If you're ever looking for something to brighten your day, pop by her shop - I know you'll love it there!
Sabrina & Scott have been enjoying life as a fun family of 3 for the past couple of years and now they were getting ready to welcome baby #2! Even though they had already gone through this wonderful adventure once before, it's still just as exciting the second time around, if not more. This time, big brother Oliver was there at the maternity session, super excited about the baby bump (...but maybe a little bit more excited about the ducks at the pond and showing off his big muscles!) It's amazing seeing a familly growing and the anticipation of the arrival of a new little person is immeasurable. This truly is a beautiful moment in a young family's journey and I can't tell you how much I love photographing these milestones. Congratulations Sabrina, you and Scott are amazing parents!
Heather & Brendan were such a delight to photograph, not only at their engagement session last fall, but also at their beautiful wedding day out at Bridges! These two lovebirds are exactly what you would want to see in a couple: they're completely intertwined and in sync with each other and very madly in love. It's just about the sweetest combo ever, and it makes the photography portion of their love story an absolute dream to take part in!
The wedding day was so much fun and extra special. Not only was everyone having a great time, but it was clear that all had come together with full intentions of celebrating and supporting them as a couple. They have a strong group of friends and family and it was such an honour being a part of it all.
I absolutely love maternity & newborn photography combo sessions, and I've had the pleasure of photographing some pretty amazing ones this past summer. It brings me great joy to see the transition from beautiful baby bump to super cute (and super new!) little baby. It's amazing to see this new little life be added into the arms of new parents and watching the very early beginnings of a family. Especially when it's some of my first wedding clients ever! Lizanne & Raymond got married in the first year of the launch of my business, so the memories I have with them go far back, and the joy of seeing them again in this newest chapter of their life is just so wonderful. Meet Félix - the newest joy of their life! So amazing to see a couple so in love falling in love all over again, this time with their son. Félicitations!
Big events with great cause for celebration have been throughout Alicia & Mike's year and it's been an absolute pleasure being a part of it as their photographer! The first one being the birth of their darling little baby girl Rose. I first met these two when Rose was just a baby bump in her mom's tummy, and after plans for wedding photography was set in place, we started with some family photos as part of their engagement session. It was a humid, overcast summer day with lots of mosquitoes, but the locations we picked were beautiful and the three of them were absolutely adorable together! Despite some mosquito swatting, we got some great photos and it was an absolute pleasure capturing their love as a new family unit. This little girl brings exceeding joy to everyone around her and her parents couldn't be more in love. Together they are a such a delight, and it's also been a pleasure taking their wedding photos just a few weeks ago (those photos coming soon!). Congratulations Alicia & Mike!
Earlier this summer, I had an idea to put together a styled setting for mini photo sessions in a woodsy area of a Winnipeg park. I contacted Danielle Cyr, interior decorator extraordinaire, and she pulled off this absolutely amazing decorated setting for the sessions! I'm so happy that she was able to collaborate with me and together we pulled off a Saturday of mini photo sessions with some of the cutest little kids around. This run of mini sessions was a smash and the interest for more has been expressed by others who couldn't make it that day so, YES, to all those who are wanting to jump in for the next one, there WILL be a next one! Stay tuned on my facebook page to find out as soon as the next styled mini sessions are announced. Thank you to all those who came out for this one back in June!
The first time I met Judah was when he was a newborn - he was the tiniest (and youngest!) guest at his aunt's wedding that I was photographing, and all I can remember were the crowds of people gathering around him to admire his cuteness! So when I had the chance to photograph him as a 1 year old, it was no surprise to me to see him just as cute, but this time, as a little dude. He's just the best! And is also such a delight to be around, which I think has a lot to do with how delightful his parents are. They are a true joy to photograph and I'm happy to share this little sneak peek from our photo session back in June. Happy birthday little guy!
The rain spared us and the day was absolutely picture perfect with these two. Sneak peek here... with more photos coming soon. To view a few more photos from their wedding, please visit their online ordering gallery here!
Félicitations Chantal et Dan!
