Amber, Owen & Berkley | Portrait Session

When Amber contacted me to schedule an appointment for a portrait session and wanted to include her new puppy, I was so excited! I love when clients want to include their furry family members. And it’s pretty hard for me to resist a sweet, cuddly little puppy. It was a gorgeous, sunny evening when I…

Jen & Mike | Family Portrait

This gorgeous family was new to my studio. Jen had contacted me to arrange a session to update their family portrait in time for holiday cards. She had told me the day of their session was when they threw together their outfits. I mean, really?! It took me about two weeks to figure out what…

Happy Halloween | Personal Blog

Halloween is one of my absolute favourite holidays! I have fond memories of planning and executing Halloween costumes as a kid. And then later when I was old enough to carve my own pumpkins, it just sweetened the deal 😆🎃 In my late teens, my Mum started carving these intricate designs into our pumpkins. So…

The Parrys | Annual Family Portrait

You will recognize this awesome family for sure, they’ve been coming to see me for their annual family portraits since 2014! And before that, Richie had photographed them a few times, too. For the last few years though, the weather doesn’t cooperate and it is heavily overcast and threatening rain. Which can add a neat…

The Twiddys and an Antique Ford | Family Portraits

When Andrea asked if it would be OK if her father-in-law brought his antique Ford along for the shoot, I thought – Yes Please!! Growing up there was always a cool antique car under restoration in our garage, so I developed a love of all things motor-related. I was excited to add this new element…

Melissa & Family | Portrait Session

It was a gorgeous Sunday. Sunny, barely a cloud in the sky. In fact, the sky was super blue that afternoon. Until about 30 minutes before Melissa’s scheduled photo session. Then the clouds rolled in, and the sun went into hiding. But that’s ok, because we still had loads of laughs and made some beautiful…

Tanya & Brett | Fall Family Portrait

I really love when everything aligns perfectly for the best possible outcome for a portrait session. The late day golden light was perfect. The gentle fall breeze was lovely. The blue sky was clear. And this family was on point! It’s never a shortage of laughs with these guys. The girls showed their genuine and…

Jennifer | Yoga Personal Branding

Say hello to Jennifer! 👋🏻 Jennifer is a yoga instructor right here in Port Perry. She contacted me back in September to set up a studio session for her upcoming website, and right from her first phone call I knew we would hit it off! She has a really calm demeanor, is soft spoken and…

They gathered on a gorgeous Sunday afternoon, the sun was warm and the breeze was perfect. They requested their photos be taken at their parents home in Port Perry, which offered a beautiful backdrop. Extended…
