Amy & John | Winter Engagement Session

I absolutely adore photographing winter engagement sessions! Actually, I really love photographing outside in the winter for all types of sessions. But seeing as it’s the month of love, I hold an extra special place for winter engagement sessions 😉 When Amy contacted me about photography, she mentioned they recently got engaged outside in the…

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…

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…

The Wilsons | Extended Family

I had the pleasure of working with this beautiful family this summer as they celebrated their parents 40th wedding anniversary! 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…

Victoria | Beauty Photography

At the end of 2018, I was approached to do some beauty photography for a pageant contestant in the Miss World Canada 2018 competition. Victoria was Miss Durham Region World 2018, and was looking for some fashion-style images to have for her keepsakes and to use in an upcoming article in our local paper. I…

Laura & Joe | Wedding

I had the honour of photographing my best friends wedding (doesn’t that sound like a movie? lol) back in May (eeek, I am behind in blogging!). It was a gorgeous Saturday night, and the rain cleared just long enough for us to get some beautiful photographs of the special couple. Laura and I have been…

Lana & Evan | Engagement Session

Ahh, I am in love with this engagement session! Couples sessions are one of my favourites to photograph, and I have been so lucky to have had a bunch of new couples come in front of my lens this year. The lovely Lana contacted me during the summer about scheduling some engagement photos for her…

The Jansen Family | 50th Wedding Anniversary

Mark contacted me about photographing an extended family portrait as a gift for his parents 50th Wedding Anniversary. What an awesome gift! (Okay, okay, I am biased… but really, photographs keep giving for years and years!) Photographs are an important part in recording those family milestones. Growing up, we would have family slide nights (remember…

Baby Annie | Family Newborn

Don’t you just love the little wrinkly features of a newborn? No? Just me?! haha, I am sure I am not alone on that front. This sweet little bundle of joy came in to the studio to see me for family newborn photos. She was born in March of this year, and she is Richie’s…

Larissa & Eric | Engagement

Larissa & Eric came for their engagement session in early July. Larissa had asked for some warm, golden images in a field, and I knew the perfect spot! Right here at our studio, on our 50-acres! This year, Richie had planted a wildflower garden for me to use in my summer sessions, and I was itching…
