As someone who is not a mom, people have wondered why in all heck do I think that the most important sessions I do every year are my Mama Love sessions. Well I can say one thing that helps me to understand the importance of these photos is that I am a woman. And as a woman I completely understand why almost every woman I come in contact with, whether she is in her 20s, 50s or in between, is weary or downright shaking in her boots before stepping in front of the camera.Read More
Choosing what to wear and coordinating your children’s outfits is probably the most intimidating thing for most of my clients, so for the full experience of a Mama Love Session, please consider these what to wear tips. You will find that clothes with movement and texture only add to and enhance the timelessness of the moment captured.Read More
Their hands fitting into yours…
Their weight on your lap or in your arms…
Celebrate these moments now - you never know how important a moment is until that moment becomes a memory.
Rose is 7 years old, but has the mental capacity of an 8 month old. Her illness is extremely rare, and unfortunately, because of this there is no prognosis. Basically, her family do not know what lies ahead for them in regards to Rose's health. This does mean that they live each day for the moments, and you can see how much hope and fight they have put in, and continue to put in!Read More
This session was very special. Matt contacted me in the spring and wanted to surprise his wife with a maternity shoot. What was unique about this case is that Matt and his wife Ashley were from Michigan and were planning a trip to Montreal!Read More
I love being able to capture the important moments in your child's life, and Baptism is a big big moment. I was so so honored to capture Ayden's Baptism. His mom and dad said his next big day like this one would be his wedding. How amazing is it that I got to capture such an important day for him!Read More
It is a quiet anticipation, an overwhelming feeling that this baby will become your entire world, and how scary and wonderful that is all at the same time. Loving someone you have never met so completely.Read More
I really love capturing those in between moments, moments that my mamas from past sessions gasp when they see, moments that make them tear up, and moments that make them throw their heads back and laugh.Read More
At my second workshop of this year we were TWICE lucky with these two sweet little ones, a boy and a girl! Each of their families were sweet enough to let me show a room full of AMAZINGLY talented newborn photographers how to safely pose and work through a session with a newborn baby.Read More
I am lucky to say I have photographed this sweet blue-eyed beauty for her newborn session, and 4th and 7th month sessions and she is growing more and more beautiful with every stage - which I thought was honestly impossible!Read More
I obviously LOVE my job. But nothing makes me love it more then when I am working with other photographers. The sense of camaraderie, the understanding of the special place we work from, the support, and most of all, all that heart in one room for the one baby we are working with.Read More
It is rare that you come across a couple that when you meet them, it is like you are instantly great friends. That is how I felt when I met Victoria's mom and dad. And Victoria was beyond sweet and patient with me for her newborn session.Read More
This little guy was so chubby, and warm and he just slept the WHOLE time!Read More
This is the authenticity I have been craving in my family photos. Something I have only been able to achieve outdoors.Read More
Of the four sessions I do in the first year, my absolute favourite session is the 6 month session. Baby is more smiley, they can generally sit on their own (although they may need a little bit of help), and they DROOOL. I don't know, but all those things combined adds up to an extremely adorable session!Read More
Our images end up on your walls, and you walk by them day by day and it brings a smile to your face. That is an incredible gift. And I work every day to get better and better at what I do so that I can keep giving this incredible gift.Read More
There is nothing like photographing a gorgeous woman in the setting sun, in the summer, in a beautiful vintage inspired dress... nothing at all like it <3Read More
I cannot wait to see how these beautiful babies grow and learn about the world and about themselves and each other. I can't wait to see their sweet pudgy cheeks at 6 months, and their chubby little legs trying to master walking at 12 months.
With every newborn I meet, I am excited to see this growth.Read More
I was so so happy to be able to capture this beautiful moment in this gorgeous mama's life.
Even though she wasn't actually sure that Maternity photos were what she wanted in the first place. She was very skeptical of the session, and I am finding more and more Mamas feeling the same way. I couldn't possibly imagine what pregnancy is like for the ladies I work with, but I do know how women think.
And I get it:
We don't like to draw attention to ourselves.
We are at times uncomfortable when our bodies change.
And if you have never had a photograph of yourself that you like, you might think, well I guess I am just not photogenic.Read More
When I first decided I wanted to start a photography business, it was for two reasons. One, my love and passion for photography, and two, I could be my own boss. Well, little did I know that when I decided to specialize in newborns and babies in their first year, that it was actually the babies that were the boss of me!Read More
