Sorry again, it’s been a while! Life has been pretty crazy the past few months, to say the least. My husband and I bought a house (finally) and I’ve signed up to do some correspondence courses in my free time, so most of my mental and physical energy has been going into those things. But, one of the exciting things that has been in the back of my mind to blog about has been the birth of little baby N. Baby N is a gorgeous little boy born way back in September to some friends of ours from University .
I was delighted to be able to do a newborn shoot with this little guy and his proud mama. These are just a very few of my favs. There were so many!! Baby N was only 10 days old :)
Look at those baby blue eyes, and that blond hair!
Love how this one turned out…
and of course, the sweet little baby bottom :)
Thanks Mama, it was an absolute pleasure working with you both!
Sorry it’s been a while… again! Clearly I need to get my act together :) Anyways, I have some photos to share from this past August.
I did a session with my good friends, Dylan and Caitlin. We tried to schedule this session a few times but things kept getting in the way. Finally we picked a date, only to find out that Dylan and Cate made dinner plans prior. But in an attempt to keep the appointment and still have nice lighting conditions, we decided we’d go for early in the morning instead of later in the day. Unfortunately for me, I also had an 11.5 hour wedding the day before where I was assisting Lisa Kwan of Lisa Kwan Images (go check her out ’cause she rocks) so it was pretty hard to drag my tired butt out of bed at 6 am. But it all ended well and was so much fun.
In other news, I found out that day that Dylan accepted a job in California and they will be moving out there this October! Dylan and Cate, I’m so happy you guys liked your photos, and I am sorry to see you move away! I will miss you and will hopefully take a trip out to see you and enjoy the nice California weather :)
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of shooting a family portrait session with Clara and her daughter Montana. Clara and I used to work together a few years ago. It was fun catching up and hearing the latest news of my old workplace.
This was the first family portraits I have done, so I was very excited to try something new. Everyone was great and enthusiastic, which of course made my job easier. We really lucked out with the weather, it was a baking hot 27C, which felt a little odd for end of April. And just as we were finishing up our portraits the clouds were moving in. Luckily we were all done by the time the massive thunderstorm moved in… The wind and sudden rain was crazy. Very tornado like! But all in all it was a success!
Clara and Montana, I am so happy you chose me to do this session. I had a blast hanging with you guys… and talking a little Twilight :P
Here are some of my favs from the day:
