Félix Newborn Photography

September 24th, 2014

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!

Family Photos with Alicia, Mike & Rose

September 24th, 2014

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!

Summer Styled Mini Photo Sessions

September 20th, 2014

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!

Judah is 1 year old!

September 20th, 2014

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!

Melissa + Trent: Engagement Photos

August 24th, 2014

I met up with Melissa & Trent on a beautiful summer evening at King's Park for their engagement photo session. I love King's Park because of its vastness - when you're there, it's never just for a quick little stroll. The best parts of the park are in the back, which means you get a long, leisurely walk down the paths, over the bridges and through the fields. We did just that and I had an absolutely lovely time with these two. They are sweet, playful and wholely into each other and it definitely showed. Here are a few photos from our walk through the park! Congratulations you two - all the best as you whisk away to the tropics for your wedding this winter!

Cousins at St. Vital Park

August 21st, 2014

Seeing small families getting larger with the addition of cute little kids just makes me smile. Seeing my own kids with their cousins just reminds me of how great it is when a family expands and kids are added to the mix. Cousins can be your best buds, and it was evident that these guys are just that to each other! This family was so sweet and my time with them at St. Vital Park was such a delight. We braved the crazy mosquitoes, but fortunately we all survived and these gems came of the photo session. Thanks guys for all the smiles, laughs and fun!

Hey Jude!

August 21st, 2014

This kiddo recently celebrated 1 year on this earth (what a milestone!) and what perfect way to celebrate than with photos of a stroll through his favourite dog park with his dog Seymour. It was great exploring the back woods of this dog park - one that I wasn't familiar with but super happy to discover! Sean & Natasha have the cutest little guy and I couldn't be happier for them and their new little family. Jude's such a happy kid and that adorable face of his just melts my heart. Happy birthday buddy!

Product Photography for Winnipeg's MÛR shop

August 18th, 2014

I aboslutely love when someone has a passion for a certain aesthetic, sees a need for specific products and finds a solution to make them available not only for themselves, but for their friends and community who also share this same passion. Danielle Cyr did just that and born from that passion is her newest business venture: MÛR Lifestyle. Their online store is described with this succinct phrase: "Shop of handmade curiosities for inspired living."

Maternity Photos at St. Vital Park, Winnipeg

August 18th, 2014

One of the very first weddings I photographed professionally was Lizanne & Raymond's several years ago. It's such a long time ago, that I can't even dig up their blog post! (I'm not even sure it exists!) So when I heard from Lizanne that they were expecting their first baby, I was super excited to get another opportunity to take photos for them. It's been a long time but seeing them still just as madly in love with each other brought me right back to their wedding day. This time though, there was an extra dose of excitement. Nothing prepares you for the journey of having a baby, except actually walking through it, so it's such a special opportunity to photograph the parents in the last few days of coupledom before baby arrives. These two were absolutely glowing! We started the session indoors as the rain fell outside, but soon enough, the rain stopped, the skies parted and we got these glorious photos at St. Vital Park. Congratulations you two!!
