Fall Family Sessions 2018

This Fall was another beautiful season filled with amazing families. It’s one of the busiest times for me, and one of the happiest. I’m so fortunate to meet new families each year, as well as photograph families for their second, third, fourth and fifth time! I walk away from each session with a greater respect for parenthood - those in the thick of raising young children and those raising teenagers, all while pushing through life’s curve balls and adventures - I love capturing it all, and witnessing family dynamics and their love for one another.

To every family who booked a Fall Family Portrait Session with me this fall, I am truly grateful for the opportunity that you give to me to document a specific time in your life. I am humbled by your gratitude, and will always remember the amount of joy and laughter you bring to your sessions, which in turn bring me immense joy and happiness.

Here are a few images rounding out the end of October.

Missed a session? No worries! I also book Winter Sessions if spending time outdoors in the snow, tobogganing and having snowball fights is your thing! Contact me HERE.

Perfectly Imperfect Family Photography

Emotional, Joyful, Tender, Playful Moments.

For years I tried changing the way I captured families. I tried convincing myself that the standard, eyes forward, everyone smiling portraits were the only type of sessions that families would want to book, pay and hire me for.

You see, I first picked up a camera when my children were toddlers because I wanted to capture authentic moments of their childhood. I wanted to remember the feeling of that specific moment in time and that specific emotion they were experiencing. And so, that’s what I did and I loved every single image I captured. In fact, I have a portrait of each child hanging in my bedroom and guess what they look like? They are wet (because they had just stepped out of the pool), their hair matted, and sitting in overgrown grass with dandelions surrounding them. These are real portraits of my real kids, and they are my favourite.

So what does this mean for you, someone looking to hire a family photographer where the options of photographers are endless?

I can only tell you what an experience with me as your photographer will be like. It will fun, relaxed, directed and perfectly imperfect. My goal is to capture the emotion of the moment so when you look back at the images you will remember what it felt like at that time. I love families acting like themselves and interacting with one another.

Here are some examples. I hope you enjoy!
