Last nights perfectly lit session...

I was so worried about my session last night....the lighting and weather had been awful all day
I got to the location and the light was GORGEOUS!!!!

Here are a few sneak peeks for you guys! :-)
It was so hard to choose which ones to put up here....I'm not done editing yet though!

This is one of my favourite pictures of all time!:

Mid Summer Special :-)

I will be booking special mini sessions on 3 evenings in July
The dates will be July 15, 16, and 17. With the first session starting @7pm

For returning clients I am offering these mini sessions with no session fee.

For new clients there will be a small session fee of $20.

A mini session is just as it sounds...a mini version of a normal session with me. These sessions will only last for 30 minutes at most and I will show only 6-10 proofs.
Due to the fast paced nature of these sessions I can not offer any family mini sessions.
The minis will only be offered for 1 or 2 children as 30 minutes is just not enough time for more.
The sessions will take place at an outdoor location yet to be decided.
So it is probably best if little ones are at least walking.

For more or any other info please email or call me

I will be back with pictures...I found a possible new my kids are getting some pictures done long as the rain holds off!

EDITED to add: The rain held off and we got a few good shots!

Busy Summer and SOME favourite pictures....all the way from last year to now!!

Doesn't summer always seem sooooo busy??
I guess there is tons of stuff to do all the time.
Since summer is so busy I thought I'd get a calendar up and running to give you all some idea of when to book.
Oh and one more thing....if you have already booked and you look at the calendar and wonder why it says available on your booked day...don't worry...I am keeping track, there must be more time to do another session.
Here is the calendar link:


of my favourite images from last summer till now!
In no particular order :-)

I have SOOOO many other pictures I could include here....

Normal People....Normal Lives....Normal Cancer??

Lets have a little chat about cancer a topic so very close to my heart.
I know, I know seems like not the lightest subject matter for a child photography blog but this is important stuff here!

Everyone has been subjected to cancer be it a family member, a friend or even yourself.
Cancer affects so many people on a daily basis. It has become and important part of YOUR life whether you have it or not-somebody YOU know does have it. We need to be aware and be strong for ourselves and for the ones we love.

A few new stats taken from The Canadian Cancer Society website:

*This year alone approximately 166,400 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer.

*Almost 40% of Canadian women and almost 45% of men will develop cancer during their lifetimes.

The whole point to my post here is:
I'm working on a project and I need your help.
I'm looking to provide a quick mini session for about 20 people who are dealing with cancer.. Keep that blog title in mind. The basic gist of this project is cancer awareness and support and most importantly-HOPE. With volunteers I will go into greater detail as to what I am doing and thinking...I don't have everything set in stone as of yet.

I'd rather not at this point go into too much more detail about the project on here but I will say it is important.

I am asking for your help.

Do you have a loved one who is dealing with cancer or is a cancer survivor?
Any cancer, any, women ,
young, or old.

At this point I have 3 volunteers I am hoping for 20 .

To clarify exactly what I am asking:
I need people living with cancer,be it in remission or active or under-going treatment, to allow me to photograph them. These pictures will be used in some public form or another. I am working everything out still on exactly what that will be. The end product proceeds will go to cancer research in Canada.

**Volunteers will have a complimentary studio session with me and will receive an 8X10 (or smaller if you choose) print from the session.

Please please pass this on to anyone you know.

If you know someone please have them email me
