St.Lawrence Market Engagement Session

Happy American Thanksgiving! I’m super thankful for all the awesome people I get to meet through photography! Oh and make sure to check out my 2-for-1 Black Friday Special tomorrow!! I loved loved loved this engagement session in Toronto, mostly because I got to shop at the St. Lawrence Market before meeting up with my super fun couple, Hilary and Luke! Carbs are good for you, right? Well after loading up on an amazing brownie and getting a super sugar […]

Family Time!

In the spirit of American Thanksgiving next week, I’m going to feature a couple of family sessions this week and next. The fall always seems like a time when families come together, which of course means that it’s also an excellent time for photo sessions–not to mention they make great Christmas cards! To further the spirit of Thanksgiving, this session was actually an item for a United Way Haldimand Norfolk Region campaign! So not only did they get to have […]

Look at the stars

This week I’m going to shake-it-up and  take the focus away from my beautiful clients to talk a little bit more about current events. First. Tuesday of this week marked Remembrance day in Canada. This year Hamilton had an extra sense of remorse as Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, a Hamilton native, was shot outside the National War Memorial only weeks ago.  I’ll leave the political commentary to the experts, but I will share a link to this moving editorial cartoon by […]

Becky and Brad’s Engagement

Some of you might recognize this beautiful couple; Becky was a bridesmaid in her sister’s wedding that I had the pleasure of capturing last year! I was so excited to be asked by Becky to be a part of her and Brad’s upcoming wedding and to meet up with her family again! We decided to meet at their beautiful new home for a brisk fall morning engagement shoot!                         […]

Shawna and Tyler’s Engagement Session

Shawna contacted me over a year ago to book her wedding in September 2015 (if only more of us were as organized!), so of course this gave us plenty of time to schedule an engagement session! Too bad the weather this past summer combined with work schedules and a bit of distance, left us with a couple of re-schedules. When we finally arranged to meet a couple of weeks ago, the sky was patchy at best and it looked like […]

Andrea and David Engagement Session

It started teeming rain right around the time I was to meet Andrea and David for their engagement session. Panic started to set in, as we had set to meet at a conservation area and as I was only in Kingston for the day. But they were troopers and were happy to move their session to the Queen’s University campus, where I knew of some covered locations that would still be a perfect backdrop for their fall pictures. Of course […]
