Isn’t this just the most magical shot!? In reality to create the dusty effect, it took 5 of us shuffling our feet in the gravel and then quickly taking our spots to snap a few photos before it dissipated. Oh the little things we do to get the perfect shot!

So I can’t take credit for this photo at all, but this magical moment was captured by the amazing and inspiring @saramonikaphoto during my connection session with Kris. Being in front of the camera is always awkward as heck, especially for photographers... but Sara just captured such beautiful moments between us- so excited for her to capture our special day this September! When’s the last time you had your photos professionally taken?

It may be feeling like it’s 40degrees (C) outside today, but I’m still thinking back to the rainy and chilly Saturday just over a week ago when I got to be a part of my almost-sister-in-law & almost-brother-in-law’s unity ceremony! Couldn’t help but get a couple snaps of these cuties! Congrats Al & @suhailaagnew! ♥️♥️

Oftentimes when I work alongside @frances_morency_photography on weddings, I get to hang out with the boys and capture the groom prep! Then the lucky couple gets images like this!

Long time no post, friends! After a near fatal hard drive disaster I managed to get back a bunch of the photos I took while second shooting on some of last season’s weddings with @frances_morency_photography! This was during Emily and Jason’s first look outside their home in Toronto! Love capturing these genuine moments! ♥️

Is anyone else obsessed with baby feet!? During my newborn sessions I make sure to capture all those teensy tiny little details - so mom and dad can look back at how little their baby really was!

Sunday Funday... better than a Monday!  Look at the absolute JOY on Little Harrison's face as his dad tosses him up in the air! 😍 I wish we could all feel that way, all day everyday!

Sassy Saturday! I have had the pleasure of knowing the beautiful Deborah for at least 4 or 5 years. Shortly after I started my business - in early 2016 to be exact- she reached out to me - she had recently completed cancer treatment and wanted photos of the “new her.” She wanted to be able to use these photos of herself to share her experience with readers on her blog, and for her travel business. This is my absolute favourite shot of her- totally sassy and classy - just like Deborah! ♥️ Thanks lady, for having little ol’ me capture you!

Every little girl needs a flower crown! 😍 Little Desirae was such a little ham when I did her family’s photo shoot last fall. ♥️

At the end of 2017 I took a poll asking for more of what you’d like to see. Travel Photos was a big one that popped up! Here is one of my favorite sunsets I ever captured in my many visits to Ahipara, New Zealand! I remember glancing out the window and seeing the magic unfold... I made sure to grab my camera and run down to 90 Mile Beach and capture the natural beauty that was highlighted during that sunset! ♥️

So it’s -20C outside today in Burlington- makes complete sense to go even further north, right? 😉 We’re headed to our cottage up in Seguin, Ontario. Not gonna lie- I’m mostly excited to curl up by the fire ♥️ How are you spending your weekend?

Brrrr!! 🌨❄️ With temperatures reaching -35C and lower (with the windchill), having that special someone to cuddle up with is more important than ever! ♥️ How adorable are these two? 😍 How are you keeping warm this weekend?
