52 Portraits | Week 21

Having felt trapped by my own shyness for most of my childhood, it makes my heart so happy to watch you excitedly skip over to other children at the park with your sweet little greeting…”Hi, I’m Neve. Want to play with me?”

London Ontario Maternity Photographer | Laura

If you’re a past wedding client, you may recognize my stunning friend and second shooter, Laura. My brides and grooms-to-be getting married before September will be getting to know her, as well. Laura is a talented photographer and I’m honoured to have her assist me for many of my weddings. She is sweet and hilarious and absolutely glowing as she expects her third baby, a little boy after two beautiful girls! I’m so happy for you Laura, and so thankful you let me drag you out for photos. Here are my favourites from our little maternity photo adventure!

London Ontario Family Photographer | 2014 Mother’s Day Mini Sessions

This year marked the 3rd annual Raw Footage Photography Mother’s Day Minis! We did things a little differently this time, opting to shoot inside a greenhouse to ensure vibrant surroundings and warm air during this very late (and cold!) Spring. Many thanks to the good people at Van Hoorik’s Greenhouse for opening their doors to us and allowing us to use their beautiful space, as well as a huge thank you to Becky from Found Decor Company for coming down from St Thomas with her beautiful props to add a bit of vintage charm to our mini setups. I’m so pleased with how these turned out, and am so thankful that so many beautiful mamas came out with their littles to make some memories. I wanted to share 3-4 favourites from each mini session! :)

When a little girl pushed you at the park today, you simply said “Hey, don’t push me, that’s not nice” and kept playing while your papa and I looked on, so proud of the confident, problem-solving girl you are becoming.

I hope you always remember that the best gifts are not material things, but memorable experiences and exciting adventures with the ones your love – like your papa’s surprise Mother’s Day road trip to the Toronto Zoo that has left all of us with so many wonderful memories of a perfect day.

Project Ten | May (Out Of Place)

Neve looked at me like I was a crazy person when I suggested she put on her swimsuit and go outside in the rain to play in the mud. It all felt a little… out of place (see what I did there?!). But since we were treated to a rare warm and humid (albeit rainy) afternoon and my mud/puddle loving girl was begging to go play outside, I decided to make the most of it. She loved it.

London Ontario Lifestyle Newborn Photography | Baby Ellie

I had such a wonderful time photographing this beautiful baby girl and her family in their gorgeous home. In-home newborn lifestyle sessions are always a treat for me, and this one was no exception. Ellie was a dream to photograph, and her sweet big brother Jack certainly kept me entertained! Here are my favourites from our session.
