This morning I spent a couple hours with the creative genius and super lovely Tatiana of Oak & Lily to capture a little slice of her life with flowers at her beautiful shop on Corydon in Winnipeg. Here's a handful of the photos we took, with more coming soon!
My sister-in-law & brother-in-law asked me earlier this Spring if I could take photos of their son to mark his 2nd birthday, and of course I said YES (enthusiastically). It's always such a treat to see my cute little nephew, and taking his photos was sure going to be a good time! And that it was! We kept it simple and I followed him around his house for some casual portraits at home. Nothing over-produced or elaborate - just hanging out with this awesome kid. He has such a delightful personality and a sweetness to him - no wonder all of it came through so easily in these photos. Love you Rusty!
This family of four was truly a delight to photograph - the kids were so much fun to be with and together with their parents, the bond they all shared was super precious to watch. I had such a pleasant time with them and it was such a hoot getting all these fun shots together! There's no question these two siblings have tremendous love for each other and it's evident that their parents are true models for that. They were so adorable together and I sure hope we get to do this again soon! Here are some of the photos we took back in April (when it was still so frigid outside).
I met Solange and JD late last year and as soon as we started chatting over coffee, I knew these two were going to be great fun to spend the day with. I'm so glad they felt the same way, and the results were just as I expected: lots of fun, lots of laughter and of course, the great celebration of a love that runs deep, strong and irreplaceable. Although the wedding photography was short (3 hours) it certainly was sweet! We wasted no time running around St. Boniface covering some of the quartier's best historic spots: the St. Boniface Cathedral for their beautiful ceremony followed by the historic city hall for photos at la maison des artistes and more photos at the St. Boniface museum (which also happens to be the oldest building in Winnipeg - wow!). What better way to mark and celebrate the union of these two than with photos around all these great locations in the heart of Winnipeg's francophone community.
Lindsay and Carter were married at the very end of March, and although we had already welcomed Spring on our calendars, it was very much still winter here in Winnipeg. It certainly didn't have much effect on the wedding because Lindsay and Carter had chosen one of the warmest, lushest green spaces in Winnipeg: the Assiniboine Park Conservatory. What a gorgeous wedding venue! The ceremony was held in the middle of a beautiful tulip garden and it was absolutely beautiful. We also got some great photos at their hotel, at Red River College, at the Hydro Building and also inside the conservatory. We did take a few quick photos outside and Lindsay and Carter were troopers braving that nasty cold wind!
This adorable bundle of joy was such a model for me and my camera when I came to their house for some baby photos! He slept through the entire session and even cracked a few sleep smiles for me to capture. And look at those cheeks and lips!! There were no shortage of cute angles with this little guy and I had fun pulling out the macro lens to get all those irresistibly cute baby details. His parents' hearts are full of love for him and it wasn't hard to see why. They make a gorgeous little family and it was such a pleasure taking these photos for them.
Baby Archer was born into a wonderful family and being the third born means that he got a pretty awesome set of older siblings. I had fun coming into their home to photograph the little guy and also getting some shots of the family together with this newest addition. Archer was quite the social butterfly! For a little newborn, he stayed awake almost the entire time I was there, but we did manage to get a few sleeping photos. Some of the sweetest moments were when his older siblings held him, it was so adorable! Archer is surrounded with love and it was such a pleasure capturing all of it.
Lisa booked me for a double session (maternity and baby) which meant I got to see her lovely face twice and see the amazing transformation from a baby bump to the arrival of an adorable little baby girl! Lisa and Neil were a wedding client of mine from a few years back, and following their journey up until now has been a great privilege. I say it often, but I can't say it enough: I love being able to see these amazing moments throughout a couple's life and taking photos of it all brings me great joy. Madelyn is an adorable little girl and it's amazing to see how much joy she brings to their life. Congratulations Lisa & Neil!
Congratulations to my sister who just had a baby this past winter! It's been an exciting time in our family, especially since I had just given birth as well. My parents are definitely over the moon happy with the arrival of so many babies, and as an aunt, I can't wait to watch this little one grow and turn into a lovely young lady. Lots of love to go around! Here are some of the photos we took of Estée when she was just 9 days old.
This newborn photography session was a pretty special one for me. Ten days after Nolan was born, I headed over to Jodi's house for a beautiful lifestyle photo session with her and her adorable little family. Jodi's not just a new (glowing) mom, but she was also my maternity photographer and one whose journey has been very similar to mine. Her and I both being a photographer and mom to two small kids, we've been able to not only celebrate in the many joys of family life together, but also be there for each other as photographers to document these amazing moments. I'm so grateful for the photos that Jodi provided for us, and now I was honoured to be able to provide the same for her. Here's a handful of the images that were created on a beautiful December morning in their household. Congratulations Jodi - I look forward to our family portrait sessions coming up this summer!
