52 Portraits | Week 37

“Why do you need to be on my lap right now?” I asked, exasperated, as I desperately tried to accomplish something at the computer after a tiring day. “Because you’re my maman, and I love you, and I want to be close to you.” Was your startlingly honest, simple and sweet answer. And suddenly what I needed to accomplish seemed utterly unimportant.

When an up-tempo song came on in the shoe store, you turned to the little girl next to you and said (while dancing): “Hi, I’m Neve, wanna do a crazy robot dance with me?” – reason 39485747 why I think you’re just the coolest kid ever.

London Ontario Family Photographer | Extended Family Session in Medway Forest

When Carolyn from In Bloom Photography¬†contacted me to photograph her entire family, I was thrilled and a little nervous. Photographing fellow photographers is always such an honour, but I always go in with extra butterflies in my stomach! Thankfully, Carolyn and her delightful family are some of the funniest, kindest people I’ve worked with, and the entire session was a blast. Laughter from start to finish! Thanks so much Carolyn for trusting me to capture these memories for you. Here are my favourites from our session!

London Ontario Wedding Photographer | Graeme & Caitlin’s Century Barn Wedding

As soon as I finished shooting Graeme and Caitlin’s epic engagement session, I started instantly looking forward to their wedding day. They are such a fun loving, adventurous couple, who are clearly head over heels in love with each other. They tied the knot at the Century Wedding Barn on one of the hottest days of the Summer, and everything from the gorgeous ceremony and the beautifully decorated barn to the amazing food and ice cream bar was absolute perfection. Graeme and Cait, thank you SO much for allowing me to capture your special day, it was an honour! -xo

Thank you so much to my second shooter and assistant, Laura Purdy!
