Magic of Christmas Market Mini Sessions!

Last week I had an absolute blast doing mini sessions at the Magic Of Christmas Market. Christmas is my favourite time of year and I usually go all out decorating and making magic for my own family, so it was nice to spread a little bit of that magic to others. I even got to hang out with Santa for an hour! Here are a few of the adorable faces I got to photograph!

Hiver

I have been lucky enough to photograph this little lady from before she was earth-side, for her newborn portraits, holiday milestones and now for her big second birthday in a month! We had some beautiful light today for some photos, and even though the dogs fought her for the cheerios treats, we had a super successful photoshoot! Isn’t she adorable!

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!


The Tarle Family

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!


Summer

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.

Amber + Ryan + a baby on the way

I am so excited that my beautiful friend Amber is expecting a baby girl this fall! Since she lives up island I don't get to see her as much as I'd like so this weekend we headed up for a visit and some photos of her adorable baby bump. 

After some cozy photos around the house with Ryan and the cats (who were as uncooperative as cats usually are) we headed out to Air Force Beach to take some photos in the beautiful hazy light. 

Amber and Ryan; I can't wait to meet your beautiful daughter and give her all the snuggles!

Beautiful Baby Charlotte

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!

Brooklyn

Today I also had some fun doing photos with Brooklyn around Beacon Hill Park. Brooklyn watches my boys for me occasionally and they love her, so I was excited to take some photos of her today as a thank you, and my son Alexander even helped out a little. She made my job so easy, and we got some beautiful photos of this beautiful girl.

Blossoming At The Farm Fundraiser

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!
