My baby girls

Just wanted to share a few images I recently snapped of my gorgeous girls.

I was attempting to get some shots of the headbands in particular, as IĀ  have been selling them to a local gift shoppe and will also be selling them at a Mom to Mom show in March

(come check it out! we’ll be featuring our photography there as well! more info can be found here: http://www.facebook.com/search/?q=mom2mom+show&init=quick#/event.php?eid=236094944115&index=1 )

These images turned out better than I hoped. Kyara, now 3, is definitely a photographers daughter and pretty much refuses to acknowledge the camera most of the time, while Eden, 17 months, normally won’t sit still for half a second! However, I guess this was my lucky day. I caught Kyara in a goofy mood and distracted Eden with her favorite pink necklace.

I love these images as they really show my girls personality.


This weekend, we also had a fun session with a gorgeous two month old baby girl. What a wee little doll, she’s still only 8 pounds! I’ll make sure to get some pictures up this week, before we leave for our cruise! (so excited!!)

My little bro

I have been wanting to take some pictures of my little brother for a while now, and finally got around to it while he was on Christmas holidays. I couldn’t believe how great he was! He did as I asked, gave genuine smiles and was just perfect to photograph! I think maybe 6 years old is my new favorite age! I absolutely LOVED so many of his images, and we got them all in about 10 minutes in my parents living room!

Isn’t he just the cutest little guy?! I love him to bits šŸ™‚

Well, I guess this marks the last post of 2009! It’s been a wonderful year and we are so thankful to the LORD for the care and guidance we have received from HIM. We have been blessed both in our personal life and business life. We’d also like to thank all of our clients, and wish you all a Happy New Year! Next year promises to be amazing!

I am looking forward to becoming an aunt again in May, when Steff is expecting her second little bundle šŸ™‚ I can’t wait! We also have lots going on with a whole new re-branding effort with our business and have a new website to launch as well. It’s going to be busy!

So it’s goodbye to (if you are a client and have perfect eyesight, you may be able to spot one of your images in there :-P)

Welcome 2010!!

My sister: Part 1

I have decided to break down all these images from my beautiful sister’s session into three parts, so here is part 1.

We started in Burlington, at an old abandoned garage. I loved the peeling blue paint and the great texture we got here. There was a problem with incredibly high winds, as I’ve mentioned before, but we worked through it, and it made for lots of laughs as hair and leaves flew around and whipped us in the face… šŸ˜› But as long as she kept her hair in place and I kept from shaking from the cold, we managed to get these images, which I love.

I love how her scarf adds some great punchy color in the next one:

From there we drove just down the road, on our way to getting lost(!), when we came across this great building. I love the classic lines, not that you can see much of the building in these images. I loved too many of these to narrow them down any further, so I put them in this storyboard.

Thanks for looking šŸ™‚

Part 2 coming soon.

D&L Family Session

This family session took place at the beach in beautiful Spencer Smith Park, after the R&J family session I blogged about earlier. This couple and their beautiful children are part of our close group of friends and it all started back in high school.

L is the most vibrant, loving and thoughtful person you’ll ever meet. She was always the bubbly, energetic kid who chatted constantly. She is so sweet and genuine, if you know her, you love her. Her hubby is the perfect match for her in his calm, practical and smart ways. They are always so fun to be with and L & I have spent hours discussing how to best raise our children or grow our gardens šŸ˜‰

Here is their beautiful family:

Their daughter K, has a special friend named Bobo and he had to be in a few pictures…

(p.s. check out those eyelashes on the second image…gorgeous!)

Sneak Peek: My gorgeous sister

So this is my little sis and she is one of the most beautiful people that I know. Not only on the outside, but also on the inside. She has a special quality about her that everyone loves. She is kind and loving, she will do just about anything for anyone,Ā  and she has a strong faith in the LORD to top it off.

I love my sis… and I am scared that she will never come back from her trip to Australia this January. So I thought I would take her out and get some pictures for my kids to remember her by…just kidding! She’s promised to come back and we’ll hold her to that.

We had so much fun on this shoot. This girl has GREAT fashion sense + an incredibly large wardrobe + lots of shoes. We drove around all over the place finding the perfect locations. In the end, despite the high winds and the freezing temperatures,Ā  I had hundreds of photos that I LOVED and I edited them down to about 70…but I simply can’t pick which ones to blog about! There are so many great images. So I think over the next while, whenever I get the chance, I will be adding more to the blog.

For now, here are some of my faves:

Personal: Family Pictures

So over the Thanksgiving weekend, I decided it was time for an updated family photo…we actually have lots of pics, but none include me :(. So we packed up, drove down the road and found this great field just 5 minutes from our house. The light was amazing and the kids were co-operative, what more can you ask for?!

I set my camera up on a tripod and used a remote for the ones that I am actually in. I absolutely love the results and the best part is, we were only out for 20 minutes of pics, and then headed out for dinner. This made my hubby happy. He hates these outings. Too bad he married a photographer!

I know I already posted the second image earlier, but I LOVE it! Oh the joys that a candy apple can bring!

Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is….
(Author Unknown)

Thanksgiving is a
time of gratitude to God,
our Creator and Provider,
whose guidance and care
go before us…
and whose love
is with us forever.

Thanksgiving is a time
to reflect on the changes,
to remember that we, too,
grow and change
from one season of life to another.

Thanksgiving is a time
of changing seasons,
when leaves turn golden
in Autumn’s wake
and apples are crisp
in the first chill breezes of fall.

Let us remember the true meaning
of Thanksgiving.
As we see the beauty
of Autumn, let us acknowledge
the many blessings
which are ours…
let us think of our families
and friends..
and let us give thanks in our hearts.
