10 years of photographing LIFE!

 

10header

It’s been 10 years of photographing LIFE in Southwestern Ontario! I’ve had the joy and pleasure of capturing so many personal (and business) worlds out there and I want to share my thanks. Thank you for your loyalty, support and encouragement over the past ten years. The very first photography “job” I had was in June 2006 when I was 8 months pregnant with my daughter. Being behind the camera and documenting my cousin’s wedding is what transformed a hobby into a passionate career and I’m very thankful for this journey.

On the 10th day of each month this year, I will post a special offer; a special offer for past clients, new clients, everyone! What better way to thank YOU, than to spread out the celebration all year long.

Don’t forget to check back on the 10th of each month. Excited? I am!

Golden & Sweet

Golden fall colours at the beginning and sweet hot chocolate at the end. That’s how it went with this family session. We had a fantastic time re-creating long ago memories. Well, not re-creating images, but using the same location because I’m always game for a walk down memory lane. It warms my heart to look back through my own family images and see how my children (and their surroundings) have developed and grown over time, so I know Jodi & Dave will be doing the same. Enjoy these memories for years to come. You can never get this time back so I’m pleased to freeze just a few moments for you and yours. Although, I think maybe you have frozen time for longer than a few moments because I’m not kidding when I say you look the same as high school! Keep on doing what you’re doing with those fine boys… the leaves weren’t the only golden part of this session.

40 years • 1975-2015

On October 4, 1975 my mom’s youngest sister got married. See that little chubby-faced flower girl in the photos below? Yep, that’s me. Flower girl at the age of 2.

Fast forward 40 years and my aunt and uncle have three grown daughters of their own, three sons-in-law, and three grandchildren. I honestly don’t know the last time their entire group had family photos taken (other than during the girls’ weddings) but I’m sure it’s been a long time. I know photos can be stressful. Trust me, I know. I may be behind the camera a lot but there are times when I’m on the other side, just like you. What we need to remember (myself included!) is that memories of our lives remain strong and colourful with the aid of photography and going along with whatever happens is how it should be.

Get close. Chat, laugh, connect. Think about how blessed you are to have all of your family members together, and how that short time in front of my lens will last for years on your mantle.

Many thanks to this entire group for gathering together on a very warm, late summer morning. The looks, laughter and expressions in these images are how myself, and I’m sure the rest of our family and friends, see you, and that’s a good thing. Enjoy!
