Another Easter has come and gone! Does anyone else feel like time passes so incredibly quickly when you have kids? I very distinctly remember last year’s Easter egg hunt and it feels like just yesterday! My girls have certainly changed … Continue reading
For a while, it looked like Spring had FINALLY sprung…and then we get hit with SNOW…AGAIN…SNOW!! Luckily it was only for one day (yesterday) and now we’re easing our way back into Spring. “Are there EVER going to be flowers, … Continue reading
WARNING!!! THIS POST MAY NOT BE FOR THE FAINT OF HEART!! Last Saturday I took my 3-year-old, Paityn to her best friend’s birthday party. Paityn had been talking about this party for MONTHS…I kid you not! Anyway, we were driving there, … Continue reading
Are you anxious to see what my Easter Mini Session setup will look like? This is not it…BUT I will be using a few of the things from this setup so I thought I would let you in on a … Continue reading
As Easter/Spring mini session time rolls around, you will notice that there are many photographers out there who offer live animals in their photo shoots – mainly bunny rabbits and baby chicks. I am not one of those photographers – … Continue reading
This is a cause for celebration! Not to long ago, I was accepted as a member of the National Association of Professional Child Photographers (NAPCP). I really haven’t been doing photography for all that long, and for the NAPCP to look at my website, portfolio and work and ultimately decide that I measured up to other amazingly talented photographers out there, was thrilling for me!
The NAPCP has been a great resource for me already. I have been able to learn from other very talented photographers, as well as share my knowledge. I look forward to every new session I have and the chance to see how much I’ve grown with the wealth of info I’ve inherited from this group.
Hiring a NAPCP member to take your family and/or children’s photos, ensures that you are hiring a photographer with a lot of expertise and talent…not to brag or anything 😉 But they do promote their photographers in that light. So it’s pretty awesome! Check out the NAPCP website – http://www.napcp.com/.

I know it’s not Valentine’s Day until tomorrow, but I thought I would post this early in case anyone out there is looking for a last minute idea for class Valentines. Last year for my daughter, Paityn’s class Valentines I … Continue reading
I met and photographed this wonderful family before the holidays. They invited me into their beautiful Toronto home, which provided a perfect neutral backdrop for some lovely family shots! There were definitely points during the photo shoot where I thought … Continue reading
I held one afternoon of Christmas/Holiday Mini Sessions this year and they were a huge success!! I would have loved to have done more, but our family was busy traveling across the world (i.e. to Norfolk, Nebraska to visit my husband’s family…trust me – when you start of a trip with a 3-year-old puking everywhere, followed by delayed flights, husband on crutches, long car rides and lost luggage, it definitely feels like you’re traveling across the world, minus the pretty and diverse scenery). Paityn and Charlotte had a great time with their Grandparents and Aunt, so despite the travel nightmare, it was worth the visit! I also had a couple of full sessions to shoot right around mini session time, so more days of mini sessions were not in the cards this time around. Next year I’ll do my best to keep an open schedule around the holidays 😉
It’s been an eventful last few days in Toronto, to say the least! We just bought a new house, after living with my mom for the last six months, and were all set to move on December 16th. It was a very cold move and our whole family managed to get the flu, ear infections and other illnesses so our moving timeline was dragged out by quite a bit. Eventful week! We finally moved ourselves into our house on December 20th. Things were (and are) very chaotic, but were going well nonetheless…until this massive ice storm hit and we lost power on Sunday morning. My mom still had power, so guess what…”we’re baaaaaaaaaaack, Mom”. Luckily our power was restored by the next day and we were able to move back into our new home. Unfortunately for many people in Toronto, power is still down and most likely will be by tomorrow. I feel for you, Torontonians without power! It’s not fun, especially in this frigid weather.
Hopefully these photos will add some warmth to your holidays! Here are some of my favorite photos from this year’s Christmas/holiday mini sessions!
Starting with my kiddos, Paityn and Charlotte:

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone!!
