Sheesh! This sessions gives me all the feels. I never really thought I’d enjoy working with families because of the fact that I was intimidated by kids having none of my own (yet!) but the more I accept family sessions the more soft my heart gets. Family sessions are COMPLETELY unpredictable and I think they can be intimidating for mom + dad more than me. The easiest way to feel comfortable in front of the camera is to go into your family session with NO EXPECTATIONS. I promise you, I have seen it all: tantrums, grumpy faces, throw up, poopy diapers and now I always prepare for anything. I will NEVER put expectations on to you about the way your session SHOULD go. These photos are the way they are because I trusted Britt + Iain to take direction and interact with Bentley and they trusted me to do what I do best. I was completely hands off for this entire session and you can see in Bentley’s eyes just how stoked he was about it.
Britt + Iain, I couldn’t have asked for a better couple to shoot with.

A day on the trails in Blue Mountain with the sun shining is a special thing especially when it includes an adventurous family photoshoot. Mel & Jorden reached out to me for adventurous engagement photos back in January. They got engaged by the lake so they wanted to incorporate an outdoorsy vibe and of course, Jorden’s daughter Lily. We didn’t end up shooting until March but I am so glad we waited. This was the first sunny day in a long time and the snow was still packed down which made the perfect backdrop. Lily was an absolute queen in front of the camera and Jorden & Mel were sweet as could be. Most photographers wouldn’t dare shoot in the conditions I was but I THRIVED. The lighting was so unique as the trees cast shadows all over the trails.
Thank you Mel + Jorden for your willingness to go with anything I threw at you. I hope to shoot for you again soon!

Wasaga Beach in the fall is pretty much drop dead gorgeous. It’s my favourite time to photograph and it’s also the best time to get your Christmas Card photos done.
The Murray’s agreed to come out to the sand dunes in Wasaga Beach to get their photos taken and we got so many more stunning shots than anticipated. A 1 hour session included a short 5 min walk to the location and lots of playing in the sand. I appreciated how this family of six was so down to earth and willing to walk, run, jump, throw and explore all over this hidden location.
I’m so glad I got to spend an evening with you guys! The love and laugh you have with each other was hard not to capture. I hope to see you all again soon. xo
