When Erin and Chris told me they wanted to have their engagement photography session along the Burlington waterfront I was so excited!  I haven’t had a chance to have a session there since the new pier opened, so that was the first place we headed for photos.  What a gorgeous day we had, pretty temperatures, a little bit of cloud, and not too many people for a beautiful Sunday by the water at Spencer Smith Park.

Now Erin tells me that she and Chris are photo newbies; they’ve never had professional photos taken together – ever… What do you think about that? ….. Hmmmmmm…..

….. these two absolutely light up the place with their fun and relaxed attitude.

I can’t wait to see what their July wedding at Copetown Woods Golf Club has in store for us!

We cottage in Muskoka, and for a long time now I’ve been dying to do an engagement session or wedding in that area.  How perfect would that be – summers at the cottage while photographing weddings and portraits at the same time!  So when Andrea told me about her wish for an engagement session that was like being at the dock and the cottage, I wanted to know all about her Muskoka cottage too.  One thing led to another, and I suggested we just do the session up there! And of course, May weather is always so unpredictable here — but we were lucky to have just one beautiful day out of the long Victoria Day weekend for these photos.

Can’t wait for the end of this month and their wedding at Dundas Valley Golf Club back here in Toronto and the GTA.  With these two, I know it will just be a stunning day!

xx’s and oo’s

My couples know that the more personal they can make their engagement session the more fun and relaxed the session becomes. And I absolutely love it when they bring along their fur babies too!

As this bright and beautiful session at Oakville’s  Gairloch Gardens proves — two pugs definitely equals twice the fun!

Pets are always welcome at your engagement session, although please inquire with your venue before hand though, to make sure your selected location will accommodate your pets.  Think about having someone accompany you along to your session as well.  We can start out together with you and your pet, and then they can take charge of your fur baby while we continue on with your session fun.

I’m pleased to be able to offer First Communion photography and portrait session for my clients.

Aside from private baptisms, which can be photographed easily on the same day, First Communion photography typically only involves a a portrait session, where your daughter or son will be dressed in her/his first communion outfit and accessories.  In almost all cases, no photography can be done on the day of the First Communion at the church without PERMISSION from the church.  Since this is a ceremony involving many other children, not only my subject, it’s impossible to photograph at the ceremony without involving other families or children.  Since my contract is only with my client, it’s usually much easier to simply schedule a First Communion portrait session either prior to or after the communion weekend.

If you’re interested in having me photograph your child for First Communion in a natural, real life setting, indoors or out, I’m happy to answer all of your questions and provide portrait session pricing.  Please feel free to email me through my website or blog.

And here are some lovely photos from Miss E and her First Communion at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church in Hamilton.

I’ve been photographing Sheri’s sweet family for the past several years now.  She’s fun, creative and always comes up with awesome plans for our sessions.  Her girls are the sweetest things, and it’s been such a treat to watch them grow through their high school and university days.  This time though, Sheri wanted to celebrate her anniversary milestone, and planned the family session as usual with one little twist – she made arrangements for renewing her wedding vows, without telling anyone she did it.  So we planned the session to give her time to tell her girls and ask them to be their ‘daughter of honour’.  And then she popped the question to her husband Mike – under the same tree where they had first had photos taken on their wedding day.

After happy tears and surprised looks, the two of them renewed their vows at the lakefront gazebo in the same park that means so much to both of them.

Love – love – love surprises!!!

Here’s a look at their sunny and fun morning in Centennial Park in downtown Oakville.
