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!
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….
Today I did a really fun shoot with my friend's daughter to celebrate her turning 8. We played around near the beautiful walls of the court house and then headed to Beacon Hill Park to frolic in the grass and play with the ducks!
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.
Last year I photographed Alice for her 2nd birthday and we continued the tradition with a little shoot today, and to make it more special we got to add her little sister to the mix this year! It was crazy smokey out this morning but I thought it added a little magic to the gardens at HCP. We explored every little corner of the gardens to find all the little beautiful little spots and find all the creatures and flowers we could.
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.
On Saturday I was honoured to offer my services for Blossoming at the Farm's first Family Fun Day. This fundraiser was to help highlight the programming of this wonderful school, the beauty of the farm and the work they do there and the proceeds went towards providing accessible programming for children and youth.
The whole day was amazingly fun. There were farm games, face painting, animal interactions (who doesn't like feeding llamas?) disc golf and so much more! I was there to photograph the families or fairies that crossed my path and I had a ton of fun with it!
And of course I have to give a special thanks to my two little men who helped me all day (glitter count down anyone?) and had the biggest smiles on their dirty, candy fuelled faces at the end of the day!
Here are some of my faves from the day!
Adorable Hudson is turning one in a few days and today we got the celebrations off early with a little cake smash! His mom made all the props and cake for his "Wild One" theme and it looked absolutely amazing. He was super cute dancing to the Wiggles and smiling during a little Facetime with Dad. Happy Birthday Hudson!
