I absolutely love when I get to photograph a family every year, see how the kids have grown and the family changed by that growth. So I love it when I get to photograph my friend Katie and her family every autumn. And this year I got to do it on the most beautiful day in the evening sunshine at Mary’s Farm!
Yesterday I met with this beautiful and fun family to do some family portraits but also celebrate someone’s special first birthday with some portraits. These two sisters were super adorable and we had fun in the fall leaves and made use of the most beautiful sunshine that we had this weekend!
While I was most of the way across the country visiting family I also had the opportunity to visit and photograph some of my favourite clients! I started photographing them for their wedding a few years ago and when I realized that they had moved close to where we visit we kept in touch and I’ve done their photos in Ontario a few times as well!
We met on a very rainy evening, but the location was beautiful in the gardens and we got some fun photos!
Today I got the chance to snuggle an adorable little lady while I photographed her. Baby Summer is the daughter of my son’s teacher last year. It was such a treat to get a chance to meet her new baby and keep that connection with my own baby’s first teacher who helped nurture him. She was so sweet, and so was her big brother who I can tell is going to be such an amazing big brother and protector for her.
This weekend was the fall edition of the Crafted Farmhouse Market, and I was again excited to do some mini sessions and get some adorable kiddos, and fun families in front of my lens. The market was amazing again, with tons of talented vendors, yummy food and treats and even beer! I’m looking forward to doing another market in the spring. Here is a quick sneak peek of some of the lovely faces I photographed this time….
As horrible as this smoke is for our beautiful province I feel it makes the photos I've taken over the last few days a little magical. A few weeks ago I met one half of this lovely family on the beach for photos and today I got to meet the other half. It was a great family session despite the smoke and I got some great shots of everyone that showed their obvious connection and love for each other.
My good friend Natalie, who's older children are the same ages as mine, recently had the cutest little lady join the family. Today I was lucky enough to get to photograph her. She was a dream, sleeping and making cute faces for the photos, and I got adorable snuggles so it was an extra bonus!
I got to meet two of the happiest babies today at the beach. They were super cute and sweet while I photographed them with their parents and it was the most beautiful day to spend on a quiet, sunny beach.
Today I met with this lovely family at Summit Park. They were a joy to photograph. Mom and Dad had some amazing tricks up their sleeves to make the boys smile and it was fun to watch them all interact together. It's so golden and beautiful up at the park and we made the most of the beautiful morning light.
When I was contacted in the spring about this session I was so excited, because they had plans to bring their wands and wanted some magic added in! I love that! We had a beautiful day yesterday and used all sorts of beautiful corners of Beacon Hill Park to take photos of this extended family. Here are a few of my favourites....
