It’s time!  Time to start thinking about Fall photos.  I am opening up my calendar for fall sessions, so pop me a note if you’re ready to book. My lovely friend Philipa gifted herself a session with her family last year…..they are such a beautiful and loving family.


(due to some strange error, I can’t blog the whole session…to be continued)


‘Family is not an important thing, it’s everything’ – Michael J. Fox

It is an honour when a family comes back for another session, here’s a beautiful spring session with this lovely family.


After a long, cold winter…..I’m back to blogging.

It’s been a great spring for these friends of mine….I hope the rest of 2014 treats them as well.

“What in the name of the neighbourhood?”

I love these people.

…words…like “bollyboll” – volleyball, “angust” – angus, “planket” – blanket, “B-E games” instead of EB games.  Before I know it….they’ll know it all.

Hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend!

Me: I wonder what the weather is going to be like today…what should we do if it’s nice?  Lily: I really want to go to China.  Can you drive to China?

My best friend since I we met in homeroom in Grade 7:

Lily found my wedding song on my phone today and we’ve been listening to it.

Etta James – At Last

I had the same feeling when I saw each of my babies for the first time.

Here’s sweet Cooper when I had the honour of meeting him.

Lily (to Jack): Do you have any black 8′s with flowers?  Playing “go fish”.

Beautiful wintery session….that I may or may not have slid my truck into the ditch when parking. :)
