Marci & Steve - Maternity Session April 2012

Marci and Steve met with me at Heber Down Conservation Area on a Thursday afternoon - such a gorgeous place to have photos done! They were married this past summer and anxiously awaiting the arrival of their first child, Jaxon - who made an early appearance! He was born on the Monday after our session.

You can see from their photos how much love they have for each other, and their excitement to become parents.  

Marci and Steve, I wish you guys all the best, enjoy every moment with your sweet little Jaxon!

Congratulations :)

Rachel & Matt - ENGAGED | Oshawa Lakeview Park

Rachel & Matt were contestants of my Engagement Session Contest in the beginning of the year. Sadly, they did not win but were interested in having me photograph their engagement photos anyways! I was so happy to take these photos for them, and had such a blast with them throughout their session! Probably one of the funniest couples I have had the pleasure of photographing to date. 

They have been together for 9 years and are pretty much a married couple already. These two reminded me of myself and my boyfriend (of almost 7 years this June - pretty much married too! hehe). I had tears laughing with Rachel and Matt as they joked around and just talked to each other. Rachel had a hard time trying to keep a straight face in photos (really worked out though, cause she was full of cute smiles!) and Matt would yell out ‘FOCUS!!’ to her - gave me a good laugh while I took their photos. They are an entertaining pair and you can tell they are so in love and have a lot of fun together! 

Congratulations you two and thank-you for allowing me to photograph such a special moment in your life together! 

Enjoy your sneak peek!

Angela & PJ - ENGAGED!

Angela and I went to elementary and high school together. We use to see each other around the halls but we hung out in different crowds. She knows my two older brothers as well. We recently connected again through e-mails as Angela works at the Lawyer’s office where we did our paperwork when we purchased our house. We got to talking and she checked out my website, at first it was going to be just a couple’s photo session but then around the Christmas holidays PJ proposed and it turned into an engagement session! These two are so adorable together, at first they kept saying they felt awkward and wasn’t sure what to do. I told them to just relax, get cozy and have fun! I think we captured just that! :)

I love their photos and was honoured to photograph their engagement session for them!

Angela and PJ are getting married next year in Las Vegas! Hope you guys have a fabulous Wedding and vacation!! 

Enjoy your sneak peek! :)

Lucas - 14 Days New | Newborn Photography

Lucas is a beautiful boy who for the most part was awake for his photo session. I did manage to capture a couple sleepy photos but he sure was fighting going to sleep for us, lol! I have been in contact with Lucas’ Mom for a while before the session as she was so excited to get photos done of him. I think Lucas was the perfect little model for his session and you can definitely tell that through some of the photos below, he pretty much posed himself!

It was great to meet you Ashley and Justin, hope you enjoy the sneak peek of your sweet little boy!
