The Blackmore Family

I had the most amazing time photographing this handsome little guy with his bright blue eyes & irresistible dimples! Along with their pup, I met this family at my parents’ property when the leaves were the most amazing golden colour. We had so much fun crunching in the leaves, being thrown high into the air and capturing some beautiful memories. Totally swooning over this session 🙂

Enjoy!

Brit & Nicole gifted their mom a family photo session this fall and it was absolutely breathtaking! The leaves were the most perfect colour, Ronan was just the cutest little babe in a box & the entire family looked amazing. I am so lucky to have access to such a beautiful place to take photos… and it just happens to be Jeanette’s favourite place on earth! Here are some of my favourites.

I always jump at the opportunity to photograph my newborn families again [click here to see Brett and Britt’s newborn session]. I find it so exciting to see how much these little peanuts have grown and the personalities they’ve developed. It is also great to reconnect with parents as I often haven’t seen them since those highly emotional, physically exhausting, sleep-less newborn days. Needless to say, the following sessions typically go a lot more smoothly with fewer diaper changes, snack breaks, bouncing and crying!

I had soooo much fun with this family! They met me at my parents’ property and they couldn’t have had a more beautiful evening. The leaves were perfectly golden and little miss was all smiles the entire time. They received this beautiful blanket as a wedding gift, but if anyone knows where it is from — please shoot me a message!!

I first met Lisa just over a year ago when she reached out to me for maternity photos – she was positively glowing & radiant and an absolute dream to photograph!

3 months later, Grady was born and I had the pleasure of meeting the little man & capture all of his newborn goodness.

& now I am so excited to share these images of his one year family session. The little man is ridiculously adorable and is already WALKING!

Enjoy!

Little Austin gave me a run for my money. Normally, I find it quite easy to get the little people in front of my lens to laugh or smile but Austin probably only gave up one or two smiles the entire session! Regardless, I had such a wonderful time with this family and you could just tell that they were already killing this new parenting gig. Here are a few of my favs (& the few smiles I received from the little man)!

An Evening at Lake Summerside

Walker-30

So this session is from a giveaway that I did LAST YEAR. First & foremost I am so grateful to Angela and her family for being extremely patient and allowing me to push our shoot back until after Jess was born. They are an amazing family and have a beautiful, energetic little girl who adores being in front of the camera! Angela suggested utilizing the beach area at Lake Summerside for the backdrop of their photos. It was absolutely breathtaking! The evening summer light was perfect and I instantly fell in love with taking beach photos. I am definitely looking forward to my next session at Lake Summerside 😋

And Jessica Makes 4…

Jessica-2

So it appears I’ve taken a 9 month hiatus from blogging. In fact, my last blog entry was July 31st, 2016… five days after we found out I was pregnant. From that point on, looking at a computer screen made me woozy, I was barfing six to ten times a day requiring IV Gravol and fluids, plus I was in charge of chasing around our busy toddler.

I thought the second time around would be easier: I had a better idea of what to expect (including all those pesky, scary pregnancy symptoms no one seems to ever talk about); I had already been stretched to the limits; and I knew what being induced, labor and a cesarean section were all like. I thought I was a seasoned vet at baby making.

I was wrong. So very, very wrong.

Looking back, I took my pregnancy with Brynlee for granted. This time the morning sickness was worse, I experienced significant round ligament pain, had terrible diastasis recti (also known as abdominal separation), and my left SI joint kept popping out of place warranting numerous trips to the chiropractor. If that wasn’t enough, Brynlee was beginning to assert her independence and autonomy. Blossoming into a beautiful little girl, she was no longer my precious little baby.

With all that being said, I am extremely excited to get back into the swing of things (considering it sounds like all I did was complain for 9 months ^^). Looking back on a few of my posts, I am so thankful that I took the time to put memories down on “paper”. A baby’s first year goes by so fast and is filled with so many milestones and achievements. I’m excited to keep you all updated on our new beautiful family of four!

The “M” Family

This family absolutely melts my heart… Miss Emma rules the roost, Sam is a total goofball, Liam is so kind and amazing with his younger siblings and their parents are phenomenal. I had a hunch that these kids would love playing around with the tractor so I got my Dad to bring it around. What surprised me was who enjoyed it the most – Emma!
