I entered my very first I Heart Faces Photo Challenge last week and was honoured to be chosen as one of the featured photos for the “letter A” theme. It was a great first experience, not only because my photo was recognized, but because I got to learn from so many other great photographers and be inspired by their beautiful work. I Heart Faces has now changed their challenge format from a weekly challenge to a monthly one, and this month’s theme is “Beautiful B&W”. I decided I would try and take new photos for every challenge I enter, since the goal of participating is to challenge myself creatively and keep growing and learning as a photographer. So when I snapped this bubble bath photo of my daughter Neve this morning, I knew it was the one.
Here is my photo entry for the I Heart Faces “Beautiful Black and White” Photo Challenge.
I’m thrilled to announce the first Raw Footage Photography Mother’s Day Mini Sessions! Moms – you are often the ones behind the camera, trying to capture all the special moments. Now it’s your turn to be in the picture, too!

Payment is due in full at the time of your mini session. The $5 discount can only be applied once, and only if you “share” the promotional flyer on your Facebook wall.
Rain dates are as follows: April 28th -May 5th, April 29th – May 6th. If there’s rain on the rain dates as well, we will get creative and utilize the covered area in the park to stay dry while still taking advantage of the greenery as a backdrop.
Gibbons Park is located at the end of Victoria St. There is a large lot with free parking. Photo session location will be visible from parking lot. There are washrooms on site, as well as walking trails and picnic tables if you decide to make a day out of it!

I was so excited about this Winter session with Kira because most folks are still fairly skeptical about taking outdoor photos in the snow. This Winter (if we can even call it that!) has actually given us very few beautiful snowy days, so I was thrilled that this session fell on one of them. I’ve photographed Kira with her family before, but this shoot was all about her. She is so grown up and wise beyond her years, and she is absolutely gorgeous. Kira had all kinds of ideas for different poses and really enjoyed trying new things – basically, she is every photographer’s dream! Here are a few photos from our lovely session in the snow! (And, in case you are wondering, the cute headband is from the wonderful Whippy Cake shop!)
