Simple Lifestyle Newborn Session

Welcome to the world little Everleigh, I'm so lucky I got to meet you already.  Jamie and Chris, I can't wait to see the wonderful little girl she will continue to grow into with you two.

Boardwalks and Bikes: Katie & Cam's Engagement Session

I met up with Katie and Cam early one morning in Collingwood for a sunrise engagement session.  After spending some time chatting over home-brewed espresso in their little sunlit kitchen, we headed out on bikes to tour around the Collingwood waterfront and boardwalks as the sun was rising over Georgian Bay.  This shoot re-created the first bike tour that Cam led Katie on when she moved to the area, and felt like the perfect fit for an active and adventurous couple like these two!  I get to see them again to photograph their wedding this weekend, and I could not be more excited to see what wedding-day activities they've dreamed up!

Spring Maternity Session

I'm beginning to expand my business towards more than wedding photography these days, as so many amazing people and interesting projects keep crossing my path.  I've done everything in the past few months from photographing for Childhood Cancer Canada, to freestyle snowboard photography, to branding work for small businesses, to family and maternity sessions.  I've enjoyed every one of these shoots so much that it's time to start sharing this more diverse work here on the blog.  Hopefully, by seeing more of what I do, you'll get to know me better, and I'll have even more interesting photography opportunities come down the pipeline, (especially adventure and marine biology related projects, universe, if you're listening)!

For now, I wanted to start by sharing a few photos from a recent maternity session I had with Jamie and Chris.  Jamie and I clicked right away when we spoke on the phone about what kind of maternity shots she wanted to create together.  Natural, classic, honest, and simple photos, exactly what I love to capture!  We took these photographs at the same house where these two got married, and it was the perfect setting to photograph the next chapter of their lives.  I can't wait to work together again in a few more months when they welcome their new little one into the world! 

Port Stanley Engagement Session

Sara and Luke's engagement session in Port Stanley was well worth the drive from Toronto, I have to send a shout-out to CAA for making it happen!  None of us had ever been to Port Stanley before, and we were all excited to checkout the beaches, quaint little town streets, and waterfront houses during the off-season.  It really is a fabulous area, and we were lucky to go in the shoulder season to miss the crowds and have miles of white sand beach to ourselves as the sun was setting!  These two were so fun to photograph and explore a new area with, and really I don't think anything can beat sunset photos on a beach by the lake-shore.  I can't wait to kick my wedding season off to an amazing start with these two in just a few more weeks!

Studio: Gesture 1

A quick creative shoot looking at the movement and details that pull a series of photographs together.  I've loved working on creative collaboration projects like this one with other vendors and artists over the winter.  Continuing to practice shooting in the off season, getting to work with other photographers and learn new shooting styles, and really having the time to dissect my work without having it pile up has really helped me become much more comfortable using my camera as a tool to create the images I see throughout a real wedding day.  Despite the business of the wedding season, I hope to keep working on shoots like this to continue growing as a photographer, so that one day, maybe, I'll find my portfolio feeling like that of a true fine art wedding photographer.  #workgoals

Killarney 2014

I took a short jaunt up to Killarney a few weeks back for some serious hiking and kayaking therapy.  I am endlessly captivated by that pink granite coastline and acres of wild blueberries.  I'm ready to start a busy season now but wish I was still back there!
