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 Nezhat Family – Connection

This family’s connection is so clearly seen in their gorgeous gallery of images! They were naturals in front of the camera. I first met Amir when he hired me to photograph a Golf Tournament for Home Depot Canada. While we worked together, he had mentioned he and his wife were expecting their second child this…

The Parish Family – Golden Hour

It’s no secret that I adore photographing at golden hour. A lot of photographers do! And for that reason, I only schedule one session per date. This also helps to make sure that my clients never feel rushed for time during their sessions. It never fails that there is always that ‘warm up’ period when…

The Hancock Family – Summer Session

Summer session family portrait in the field! I love summer. I love portraits. It makes total sense that I love summer portraits! HA, ok that was cheesy. But really, even though fall is my busiest time of the year for outdoor portraits, I really do love photographing families in the summer months. The air is…

Ian & Stephanie | Fall Portrait

The light we had during this beautiful family’s portrait was simply stunning. I met them at their tree farm property and was delighted to discover the rows of trees with this golden light filtering through. It was a cold and windy Sunday afternoon, and I was sure we were going to be rained on. But…

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 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 Robinsons | Family Outdoor

This was the second time this beautiful family came to my outdoor studio for their portrait session. This year they had a new family member they wanted to include! It is always an honour when families become repeat customers. Last year we had just had a sprinkling of snow the week leading up to their…

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…

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…

The Twiddys | Family Portrait

Last year, the Twiddy’s came to see me for the first time. It was such a warm and gorgeous fall day. This year, unfortunately, was one of the coldest fall days that we had at that time. Brrrr! Fall weather is so unpredictable! And up until the week or so before, it had been pretty…
