The Manor Wedding // Margaret + David ♥

I’ve known Margaret and David for years. Margaret, my sisters best friend, asked me about shooting her wedding over a year ago. I was so excited to be apart of their big day. I’ve had the pleasure of watching Margaret grow up with my sister and I’ve also seen her and David’s relationship grow from high school sweethearts into a happily married couple.

We had a great time on their engagement shoot last summer and I knew their wedding would be just as fun. Margaret and David are a very sweet and loving couple and it showed on their wedding day. I was able to capture their love and I’m ashamed to admit how many times I teared up at the wedding. It was a beautiful Italian wedding filled with family, friends, two little nonnas that made my heart melt and the sweetest little ring bearers!

Thank you Margaret and David for allowing me to capture this beautiful day. The Manor was the perfect place to host your wedding, surrounded by nature, a pond and two lovely swans.

Baby Dylan’s Newborn Photoshoot

I have so much love for this adorable family. Rachel and Daniela have been coming to me for their family photos, for the past few years and I love getting to watch their little one Carter grow up. He’s such a handsome little guy and now they have a lovely little girl!

Dylan was such a sweetheart! Another six pounder and totally alert. She started to nod off towards the end of her shoot. She had the cutest little wrinkles in her forehead and her eyes were so pretty, just like Carters.

Congrats Daniela and Rachel, can’t wait to watch your new addition grow up!

Le Grand Lodge Wedding // Emily + Jesse ♥

Emily contacted me over a year ago based on the work I did at another wedding. She wanted me to be her wedding photographer and I couldn’t be more delighted! I also had the pleasure of designing her wedding stationery. I love being apart of the creative process of a wedding. It was so much fun to see her vision come together.

The wedding weekend took place at Le Grand Lodge, located in Mont Tremblant. Nestled between a beautiful green forest and a picturesque lake, friends and family gathered to celebrate their love. It was the perfect day. Thank you Emily and Jesse for being such an easy-going, awesomely fun couple and for allowing me to capture your special day. You really are such a great pair!

Baby Ellie’s Newborn Photoshoot

I was so lucky to be asked to shoot baby Ellie’s newborn pics. A little 6lb bundle of joy, Ellie was determined to stay awake and not miss a thing! I like to call this F.O.M.O. aka Fear Of Missing Out. lol I know a lot of babies like this….my son for example.

Ellie was such a sweetheart, just like her mom and boy does she ever look like her. I’m so excited for mom and dad on their first baby. Congrats!

Toronto Music Garden Wedding // Janna + Carl ♥

I was honoured to capture the magic and fairytale love of Janna and Carl. The day started with a little rain, but then cleared up as their pictures started in the beautiful Toronto Music Garden. I had no idea that this garden existed on the Toronto waterfront. It was the perfect place to take the couples photos, as they already live by the waterfront, not to mention Janna’s amazing singing talent. After all, she did play Maria, in Toronto’s production The Sound of Music!

That’s not all though, the couples love for theatrics and fantasy, played a role in their wedding attire. All guests were required to wear some type of flare to their wedding. Janna wore fairy wings, which caught the light beautifully among the fairylike atmosphere of the gardens. It was a magical day indeed! Congrats Janna and Carl.

Welcome Baby DAYCEN!

Daycen-newborn-announcementThis post has been a long time coming. I had a baby boy almost 6 weeks ago!

My life has completely changed and I am learning to adjust, hence the really late birth announcement! ha

I couldn’t be more happy with this little guy. He is everything to me. It’s crazy how much you can love someone in such a short amount of time. I constantly stare at him to make sure that he’s real! It still shocks me that he is mine. He looks so much like his father too. I don’t see a lot of me in him yet, but I’m sure that will change.

The love I have for my husband has grown ten fold. It’s amazing to see him turn into a daddy and kiss Daycens little head everyday. It really is the most beautiful thing to watch. He’s been such a great help and such an understanding husband. Believe me, there have been some struggles adjusting to no sleep and 14 diaper changes a day! I am not exaggerating. I envy those of you that have babies that will sleep for 3 hours straight. None of that for me….yet.

I just wanted to share some cute shots I took of him at one week old. It’s funny actually, after all the newborn photoshoots I’ve done, photographing my son was the most difficult! He was way more fussy than any other baby I’ve photographed and he just hated being put down. I know….he’s such a mommas boy. : / Scared face. All in all, I still got some cute pics when he settled down.

I am looking forward to watching this little boy grow and get a personality. So very, very thankful for this precious gift. =)2014-Newborn-Daycen-8 2014-Newborn-Daycen-11 2014-Newborn-Daycen-16

My Maternity Photoshoot

Hugh Whitaker-13So I just received my maternity photos in the mail today and I am so in love with them! My friend Hugh took the pics of my husband and I and we couldn’t be happier. Hugh is such a talented photographer and friend. You can check out his work here.

I really wanted an outdoor shoot and something more natural. That’s more my style than the traditional maternity pics you see around. These pics make me want to get out and shoot some more of my own maternity sessions once I have this baby! Hope you like. =)
