The always wonderful H Family! {Family Portraits in Jackson Park, Peterborough, Ontario}

There is no greater honour for me as a photographer to be trusted to capture important moments again and again for the families I work with.  The ever growing and always wonderful H family met up with me to commemorate Miss R's first birthday.  We braved the cold to get some outdoor portraits in Peterborough's Jackson Park and then headed into the studio to warm up and keep shooting!

 






Miss R loves her big sister Z.  Like, seriously in love with her.  I think the feeling is mutual.





We had to sneak in a few portraits of the beautiful Z as well. 




And then we did a cake smash!  There was some hesitation at first, but after a few tastes, Miss R decided that she quite liked her first taste of sugar.  Many thanks to Black Honey Bakery in Peterborough for the adorable cake!

Thank you, as always, for trusting me to capture these memories for you.  
It is always so wonderful to see your beautiful family!  
A few sweet candid family pictures to wrap things up.....

An in studio session with the S Family! {Peterborough Ontario Family Photographer}

The cuteness of the ducklings during my spring mini sessions lured the S family down to the my Peterborough studio all the way from Ottawa.  Since they were already making the drive, they decided to book a family session as well - as it had been far too long!  

I hadn't seen Mr. L since his newborn session, so I was very excited to hang out with this cutie again!  (And, ummmm, his parents, who are also pretty fabulous.)



 Also, how insanely cute is Mr. L's bowtie?  He is totally rocking it.
 This little guy is so loved.  Look at all the cuddles. 





 



 

 


S family - thank you so much, as always, for trusting me to capture these memories for you.  Same time next year?  ;)

Kate and Mark are having a baby! {Peterborough Ontario Maternity Photographer}

I had so much fun reconnecting with Mark and Kate this week to document their latest development.  Regular readers may remember their awesome wedding just a few years ago, and now they are set to become parents!  (Sidebar - how lucky am I to get to document all these incredible milestones for people?  love my job!)  We started out with some shots of Kate all on her own to capture that fabulous baby bump (doesn't she look amazing?)

 



We also cranked the music up and documented baby's first lip synch to backstreet boys.  
As every 90's girl knows, this is a key rite of passage.


And then Mark joined us for some cuddling and general good times. 








Congratulations, you two!  Such an honour to be there to help capture this next stage in your life.  I cannot wait to meet baby when he or she makes their arrival!

Sarah and Michael are Married! {Kawartha Golf and Country Club Wedding}

Sarah and Michael had a beautiful wedding at the Kawartha Golf and Country Club in Peterborough, Ontario.  After a week of rain, the sun came out, and the leaves stayed on the trees, allowing us to capture some amazing fall colour in their portraits.  

So let's get started, shall we?  Sarah and her half of the wedding party were 
busy getting ready at the Peterborough Holiday Inn, while Michael and his guys were 
over at his parent's house.  I could already tell this was going to be a fun group.   
 




Sarah's mom helped her into her gorgeous dress and it was off to the golf club!  
Meanwhile, guests were starting to arrive for the ceremony. 

Loved the look on Michael's face as he watched Sarah walk down the aisle with her dad, and the look on everyone else's face as they watched Michael.  :)





Also, how cute are these two?!?  
Seriously, have you ever seen two people more excited to be getting married?

















Meanwhile, back at the reception, guests were busy getting the celebration 
started amidst the insanely gorgeous decorations.  (Also, the cake was made by 
Michael's sister Nicole - is she not crazy talented?)





The bride and groom returned from portraits and the reception got started for realsies.  In order to get Sarah and Michael to kiss, guests had to play a dice rolling game.  These two required very little encouragement so the dice was busy most of the evening. 






Michael and Sarah's first dance alternated between being delightfully 
romantic and ridiculously adorable (the adorable part happened mostly when 
their daughter, Miss A, crashed the dance floor.  Much cuteness.)



During the parent dance, Sarah split her time between her mom and dad 
and Michael danced with both his mom and grandmother - such a sweet way 
to acknowledge many important people in their lives.






And then the floor opened to everyone, and this happy photographer settled 
in to capture a night of crazy dancing.  So much fun!







Finally, a ring shot to end the day.


Sarah and Michael - thank you so much for trusting me to tell your story.  
It's always a privilege to be allowed into people' s lives on such a special day.  
Wishing you both a lifetime of love and laughter together!
