The Hillock Family – Joy

JOY! These images just shout joy, don’t they?! This gorgeous family came to my portrait studio in November for their first portrait session with me. When I asked how they found my services, they said they had found me on Instagram. As I do with all my portrait families, I asked what their main goal…

The Hazelwood Family – Portrait Session

The Hazelwood family called me up at the end of August. She was hoping to get a family session while her parents were in town. I love getting referrals. As a small business owner, the best compliment you can receive is getting referrals from happy and satisfied customers. And this lovely family came to me…

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…
