Happiness held is the seed; happiness shared is the flower. ~Author Unknown

We arrived to find a beautiful golden sunset highlighting the features of my latest shoot...farmers' fields, a small rustic barn and J drove up with a trunk full of hay bales. It was better than anything I could have hoped for. When I visit a client's home for the first time, I never know what to expect and this location fully exceeded my expectations.

Even though baby G hadn't had much of a nap, she was in great spirits and ready to go. E was full of energy and I knew he may be shy, so I took some time with him. He got comfortable really quickly. Having a 3 and a half year old of my own means that I can relate to toddlers quite easily (at least I like to think so). B looked stunning. It was a lovely shoot.

I have to say a big thank you, to my friend, neighbour and assistant, Madi Schaefer for helping me out on this shoot!  Photo credits to her also.

J and B, your family is beautiful and wonderful and so photogenic. It was a pleasure meeting you and thank you for making it so easy! Hope you enjoy a few of my favourites.

"A moment in my tummy... a lifetime in my heart."

Rebecca and Chris were our neighbours when we were in University.  Now we are all grown up (at least gotten older), and are having kids of our own.  I was super excited when Rebecca contacted me about my "Watch me grow -tummy" package.  This was one of my last photo sessions before I have my 3rd next month and it would be a great chance to catch up.

We met in Elora and took some amazing pictures - thank goodness the rain held off.  In fact I had literally gotten into my car at the end of the shoot and the rain began!

Rebecca and Chris - I wish you all the best in your new adventure.  Can't wait to meet the little hockey star!  Please enjoy a few of my favourites!

Kids: they dance before they learn there is anything that isn't music. ~William Stafford

B looked amazing for a mom of a 16 month old and 6 week old.  But then again, she always does.  I visited their home to take some pictures of Baby W, but managed to get some gems of little M and their beautiful yellow lab.  Their house had some really gorgeous window light from their back door and it made for a relatively easy set up.  A big thanks to J for helping me to re-arrange some furniture...ok most of the furniture.

J and B, your daughters are delightful and beautiful like their mama.  I really hope W is allowing you some more sleep and you are enjoying your girls!  Here are a few of my faves from our photo session.

“It is better to play than do nothing” Confucius

Another beautiful day and another beautiful morning spent with my family.  Park, picnic (or PINK-nic as Maria calls it), and a few rides.  Enjoy
