In September, I headed out to an adorable little church in the country with my friend Taylor Kanary as my sidekick for the day.
I photographed Annelise & Kris’ engagement session in October 2014 at Miquelon Lake, and it was awesome! It was so easy to get genuine photos of them, and I got so many adorable shots of them laughing, which are my favourite.
When I found out that they were going to do a first look on their wedding day, I was even more excited, because I knew that Kris would have such a great expression when he saw Annelise. Anytime I was around them, I could tell that they just love eachother so much, I’m pretty sure I had a goofy grin on my face their entire wedding day, ha ha.
Thank you two so much for having us photograph your wedding, it was an absolute joy to be a part of.
This past June, on what was probably the hottest day of the year, I captured an absolutely ADORABLE backyard wedding. Robyn was such a sweetheart, and so understanding when I kind of got horribly lost trying to find her Mom & Step Dad’s acreage! Oliver is from Australia and a lot of his family travelled very far to attend the wedding, unfortunately I was not the only one who got lost! 😛
As Lauren, the maid of honour, said in her speech, Robyn has always been more concerned about others than herself, and it was so easy to see that any time I interacted with her. Both Robyn and Oliver are surrounded by such amazing and supportive family members, and everyone was so friendly!
Thank you for having me capture your big day for you, it was awesome.
I don’t usually post family photos, but this sibling photo was just too awesome to not share.
I am unbelievably excited to share this with you. In November I had the amazing opportunity to photograph my first birth story. Kate was a childhood friend of mine, so when she trusted me to capture such an intimate moment in her and Steven’s lives, I was STOKED.
We had a couple false alarms with this little guy, so I have some images shot during that time at the beginning. Finally, on November 20 at around 2AM I got a phone call and it was time to head to the hospital! And at 2:26PM in the afternoon, Alexander decided to come out and meet us. Words cannot even begin to describe how incredible this experience was for me. I am starting to tear up again thinking about it. It was so worth the all nighter we pulled!
The last few moments when he was almost here were so emotional. I actually started to feel tears welling up in my eyes before the same thing happened to Steven. It was so, so beautiful to witness these two become parents for a third time. Thank you guys so much for allowing me to be there and experience this with you. These are some of my favourite photographs I have ever captured.
(And thanks to Taylor Swift for writing this awesome song, Never Grow Up. I thought it was rather fitting.)
