Happiness is where you are.

As I write this there is a winter storm going on, its snowing, the wind is blowing and its COLD!!! The girls and I needed a project, something bright and fun! So we started working on this floral wall. I had NO idea that it would take as many flowers as it did. I’m sure we visited dollerama and Michaels 10 or more times to buy more flowers… oh and glue! SO much glue. But it became a bit of a fun thing, the girls would bring their sparkly little […]

Baron Family :: Fall 2016

The Baron family are making life with three kids look pretty darn amazing! Kendall, Logan and Nora were so much fun and they were so sweet with each other. I especially loved watching Kendall and Nora together. Nora was happy to be carried around by Kendall and Kendall doted on her. Logan was a ham who totally worked the camera! Oh and Nora’s cheese face?  The BEST. ♥         Cheese!♥

These guys were troopers – it was cold! AND Joseph had the flu!! Since it was cooler we had lots of snuggly pics, my fav! Also could be Sofia be cuter!? Loved her outfit and bright smile ♥

Newborn Home Session with the Robinson Family

Oh baby Yale, you are a dream! This sweet girl was so content during her session, sleeping and waking up occasionally to look around then back off to sleep. Her big brothers were so good with their new baby sister, lots of cuddling and counting toes. Tracy and Chris are so welcoming, its like spending time with friends. I loved asking Tracy questions about becoming a family of five and hearing all about the whirlwind of a newborn with two toddlers. Baby Yale you are going to have so much […]

Guzzo Family :: Summer 2016

As soon as I pulled into the driveway at the Guzzo’s house it started to rain! I thought for sure we were going to have to reschedule but once we arrived at the shoot location the sun suddenly appeared and it was a beautiful evening! Eva is so sweet, she has this beautiful smile and bright eyes. Antonio kept making me laugh with his adorable smile, love those big toddler scrunchy face smiles!! During a family session I love when there is playing and interacting with each other. These guys […]

McCartney Family (and bump!) :: Fall 2016

Big sister to be was so much fun, had a blast chasing her around ♥

Srinivasan Family :: Summer 2016

Parthiv! Oh my goodness this kid. He had his paw patrol chapstick with him and loved to chat. Parthiv and his parents were preparing for their move back to India.

Sarah is due at the end of this month and I’m so looking forward to their Newborn Home Session ♥

My muses.

I have never written a blog post about my girls. I tend to show jut client images but I thought that it might be nice for the girls to look back and see a sprinkle of them. They are after all my muses and the reason for my photography dreams coming true! When I was a kiddo my mom used to pack my sister and I up in the van and we would go to quilt and craft shows, antique stores and fabric stores. My sis and I definitely did […]

Dheilly Family :: Maternity Session

Ok guys! Cute family alert! This wonderful family are my neighbours but also friends. Currently we do not have a fence and I love when I see London running across the yards to come play. He is so easy going, which is no surprise as both Pat and Whit are so friendly and laid back too. London will soon be a big brother and I am so excited to see him with his new baby. So much to teach him, hockey and singing O Canada I’m sure will be at […]

Central Speech and Hearing Clinic

They are a unique clinic with families coming from other provinces just to access their services. CSHC focuses on auditory verbal therapy, using amplification devices and implants to help with speech and hearing. They see a wide range of ages, including babies. During this shoot I worked with Debbie Brown, a certified auditory verbal therapist. Another speech therapist, Jennifer, also joined us for the shoot. Watching the two […]

Newborn Home Session with the Chambults Family

A newborn home session is hands down my favourite. Especially when there are older siblings. Seeing that interaction between big sister/brother with their new baby is the best! I also love seeing the parents with the older sibling(s), I remember feeling this way with my oldest too, making sure that they are involved and given extra attention and cuddles. After all, becoming a big sister/brother is a very big deal! This family was so full of love and oh so calm! Big sister Cadence and I got to chat while […]

Newborn Home Session with the Bastable Family

I have to admit I was so excited to see the Bastables again! I wanted to hear how they were all doing and was excited to see big sister Ella with her baby sister. Ella showed me her baby sister’s room and then they got up on the bed for a family snuggle – including the fur babies, Jayda and Charlie. I love ending a newborn season with mama and baby. It always tugs at my heart seeing the gentleness of them together. Watching mom smile and adore her new […]

Baby Monroe :: The Best Christmas Gift

The Bastable family received the best gift you could ever receive on Christmas – their sweet baby Monroe.  Shortly after opening gifts on Christmas morning Laura’s contractions started! Miss Roe was born at 3:10 pm – and oh my goodness did she ever look like her big sister! Below are photos from the newborn hospital session that were taken the next morning. Watching big sister Ella meet her baby sister was absolutely precious. She was so excited to check out her babies fingers, toes and belly button. Thank you Dave […]

Neilson Family :: Winter 2015

I LOVED this session! Nicole had contacted me about an outdoor family session and I have to admit that I was a bit worried that our Winnipeg winter weather might get in the way but we totally lucked out! It was mild and the winter sun was so pretty. The best part (aside from sweet Liam’s smile!) – the addition of the christmas sweaters for their Christmas cards! So good ♥

Bastable Family :: Maternity Session

I looooved this maternity shoot! It was so nice to catch up with this mama while I photographed her beautiful growing bump. I was dying to try out an idea but it involved standing in the cold dark garage, but Laura was such a good sport and in the end we both agreed it was worth it! Laura and Dave are amazing parents and I can’t wait to see this adorable family of three become four very soon. Baby girl is due in 6 weeks!!! ♥

Carlson Family :: Fall 2015

The Carlson family – I could have taken photos of Chloe and Audrey forever. Im sure that these two sisters get on each others nerves (as all siblings do!) but I adored how sweet they were with each other. Its so special having a sister and these two clearly show that special bond. ♥

Jellimac Family :: Fall 2015

This lovely family made my job SO easy! James just celebrated his 2nd birthday and he is such a cutie! Very talkative and the best little jumper ever. I could have taken their photos all day :) Ps. How dreamy are these fall colours, so thankful Winnipeg has not seen snow yet!      

Hornung Family :: Fall 2015

I met the Hornung family on a chilly morning in October at St vital Park. Noah and Leah are SO cute and they were hilarious! I loved the poses Noah did for us, oh and such a good helper, he was the muscle carrying the teepee back to the car :p It was a pleasure taking their family photos :) ♥

Clarke Family :: Summer 2015

This is one fun family! We met out at the floodway and had the field to ourselves. Oliver and Maisy are adorable kiddos, love their sibling interactions together. So cute! Oliver had lots of lighting tips for me and even asked to come help me in the studio – anytime Oliver! Future photographer? Oh and Maisy, this kid has such an infectious smile! Holly and Chris recently celebrated 14 years of marriage, you guys are clearly rocking it! ♥

Kozak Family :: Summer 2015

Eek! I adore this family of three! I was so excited to do their family photos. Shanda and Darin have the most amazing backyard, lots of room to run and play, oh and the prettiest trees. The heat and the intense mosquitos made for some humorous moments ;-)  Jack those blue eyes are going to break hearts!

Hiebert Family :: Summer 2015

As soon as Brooke suggested her family farm for a photo session I was pumped! It was such a hot night and I was a little concerned we were all going to sweat our faces off but it was beautiful! There were so many fun things to check out; both Jace & Julianna loved the apple trees and the big tractors and trucks! Oh and can’t forget the sweet barn kitty who kept us company :) This is one sweet family as you can see through the photos. Grandma and […]

Wilkinson Family :: Summer 2015

I heart this family so much! Elle and Parker are such sweet sisters. While mom and dad were setting up some balloons we snuck through the grass like lions, ran around and stopped to picked some flowers. Highlight of this session was when Parker got upset because Elle wouldn’t hold her hand, too cute!

Pederson Family :: Summer 2015

This family is so sweet, Steve and Ash were meant to be parents. Their patience and love is so obvious for their girls. Both Grace and Clara are so sweet and are going to make awesome big sisters! It was a pleasure photographing this growing family ♥

Leggo Family :: Summer 2015

As soon as the the van doors opened both Ethan and Paisley were ready to play! Paisley is an adorable curious babe who gave me such a warm hug hello and Ethan was all smiles and eager to explore! There is so much love and fun in this family and its very evident in their family photos. Enjoy!

Birthday fun with Grayson & Noah

These two brothers were so fun to photograph! Grayson is such a loving big brother and you can tell how much Noah adores him. They both share their birthday month so we had some fun playing in the forest with balloons and then had yummy cupcakes at the end. Noah didn’t hesitate at all with his cupcake and dove right in!

Fall with the Wilkinson family

I was so excited for this session! I knew that Sara was crafting up a storm and making special props for the girls’ fall photo shoot. She did an awesome job and both Elle and Parker had so much fun playing and biting every apple that was in the basket ;) Love this family so much ♥

The Pederson Family

I had so much fun taking the Pederson’s family photos. They made my job SO easy! Grace came wearing a beautiful dress that her Grandma had brought back from Italy, it was adorable watching her walk around with her hands in her pockets. Bright eyed baby Clara was so good the whole time even though we were close to bedtime. Beautiful fam! ♥

Ethan is turning 3!

 Anyone who spends time with Ethan will quickly find that he is a kind hearted, curious, smart kiddo who is always fun to be around. I was so excited to photograph him with his big birthday balloon! The smiles and awe that came from playing with it was a treat to see ♥
