Guelph Family Photographer. From belly to baby

Ahhh!  I just love this family.  They are so kind, friendly, and pretty much wonderful.  I was so honoured to photograph baby H when he was still inside mommy's tummy (and it wasn't known whether he was a boy or girl - at least to me) and then again once he arrived!

We spent an evening at Riverside Park in Guelph and ran around in the grass and played on the playground and I found a beautiful spot along the trail to photograph sweet little S - those curls!

Then I came back to their home for H's newborn session when he was less than 2 weeks old.  He needed lots of feeding and cuddling and so I had some time to photograph their 9 year old lab and of course sweet S again.  We also needed some time for clean up when, not once, but twice, H decided to wee on daddy.

Rebecca and Chris,  Thank you so much for welcoming me into your home.  I really appreciate your kind words about my photography, my business and listening to my sometimes crazy ideas.  Your feedback is invaluable and I will continue to use the word "artistic-ey" and credit you, Chris.  Please enjoy a few of my favourites from our 2 sessions.

Kitchener Photographer. The Generous Host

I'm so excited to partner with The Generous Host for this years Christmas Card Special.  I had a chance to meet with Renee Peers (who is as generous as her business name) and visit her shop  on Saturday.  She is located just steps from the Kitchener Market and she offers adorable single serve desserts, custom hand painted pillows and beautiful home accents and gift ideas. 

Although I only had my phone when I went to meet with her, I couldn't resist capturing a few of the items in her shop.  Also, you may notice I don't have a photo of those desserts I mentioned...well I ate my sample up pretty quickly!  But you should go check her out and have a taste!

If you like what you see, please visit her at 18 Eby street south in Kitchener.

Elmira Family Photographer. Rain, Rain, Go Away

I didn't just get to photograph this family once but twice.  We can thank mother nature (and a tornado watch) for causing us to cut our first session short.  And we were working on a time frame because some of the family was visiting from beautiful British Columbia.  But rain it did, so we met a few evenings later to catch some sunshine and more great photographs. 

Humes, not only are you an awesome family, but an easy one to photograph.  Thank you so much for the fun evenings.  The kids were great - the big kids too.  Please enjoy a few of my favourites.
