Growing and growing and growing!

Baby numero three.  The kind of shoot I like - loose and free flowing.  This one was pretty special with my people.  Ready to welcome a new little sister very soon, into this active and love filled family.

Let's go get our pictures taken now.  Someone wants to go see the boat.  Someone wants to snuggle her little sister, and someone doesn't, he wants to go see the boat.  Someone is cold and needs her jacket back on.  The kids don't want to hold hands.  Oh wait, they do!  Someone needs to go see the tower (our wind power tower) - now!  Then we're near the lake, must be time to go skating.  They need their skates on.  They want to go skate!  We pile them into the sled......and we go skating.  Easy peasy maternity session.  

2015 ReCap

Holy Wow!  I've been a total slacker in the BLOG dept. this Fall.  It was a busy and fun and freaky and frenzied and awesome year!  My husband kept asking...."aren't you busier than normal this year?"  I certainly loved every minute!  Let's see.........I shot 5 weddings, 2 engagements, 10 - 2016 grads, 24 family sessions (that's a LOT of kid chasing), 4 newborn/in home sessions, 5 commercial gigs, HHS prom, 3 maternity sessions and a first birthday party - it was beyond fun & colourful & loud!  haha  And a few more fun projects were thrown into the mix, including a show with my photography collective - SilverFish.  

I feel so truly blessed to have the clients and friends that I do.  My job is not a job..........I'm so thankful to be doing what I love.  Thank you all for another fabulous year!

In no particular order.....here are some of my favourites from last year.

It's my Party And I'll Cry if I Want To!

Not that dear Simon, who just turned 1, is a cryer, but he's quite the opposite.  A sweet and loveable little boy who is surrounded by love love love and then a side of love!  But he  certainly preferred his piece of watermelon to a chocolate cupcake!  I don't get it!!  

This was a fun afternoon of shooting - lots of family memories for this lovely young and fun gang.

Happy 1st birthday sweet Simon!!  xo

 

Some, no......LOTS of Winter Happy!

Yes, it's been a long winter, blah blah blah blah!  I'm thinking people need a bit of a reminder, about how many fabulous winter days there were this year!  Yes, there was a lot of dreary stuff, but look at these happy, smiling, dare I say, giggling people I got to hang out with.  Some in January!!   There was some stellar winter weather and fun happening!  Some silly love.  Some great family time - outside even!!  And some amazing light along the way!

The last few shots were taken just 3 short days ago!  Remember Saturday?  Sun, +10?  It WILL happen again, just hang in there everyone!  

Meanwhile.......enjoy the winter happy!

Babies. Babies. Babies!

So, I'm not doing so great with my "once a week Blog entry" resolution - eek!  Lordy, I almost missed February completely!  Most of this month has been spent relaxing and recharging.  I'm looking forward to all that the rest of 2014 brings my way.  And I'll get better with this blogging too!

A lot of little girlies have made their way to me this year.  A LOT!  

Each one of them, no matter what their age, have certainly found their inner divas.  Haha!  This is only but a sampling of the cuteness I've seen already this year.  

It's always so much fun to get together with the new little families for fun portraits.  Little ones never ever EVER do what you expect on photo day, which usually gives us wonderful surprise moments to cherish.  Nothing posed, pushed or propped.  Memories as they happen.

Enjoy the sweetness!

 Sweet Georgia.

 What an awesomely sweet family!
