Morgan, Ben, & Ronan

We pride ourselves on being a creative duo. We thoroughly love when we are able to provide creative input for shoots when we work with various theatre groups. We love being able to advise our other clients on possible locations, wardrobe, and general theme of the shoot. But every once in a blue moon we get to work with someone like Morgan.

Morgan and her husband Ben were expecting their first child and Morgan was looking to get Maternity photos done. But not just any old photos – she had something in mind. She wanted the shoot to be based on John Waters 1990 movie, Cry Baby, starring Johnny Depp. And we loved the idea!!

When we met downtown for the shoot Morgan arrived looking so much like Ricki Lakes’ character Pepper Walker - it was awesome! The shoot was so much fun. Morgan totally played up the character in every way and we all laughed a great deal in between shots.

Flash forward several weeks and we switch gears for our visit with Morgan and Ben and their new arrival, Ronan. This shoot may not have been “themed”, but it was still a lot of fun.

Ronan is definitely a cutie. It was also great to see how their dog Maybelline was obviously comfortable with this new human in her life.  

Congrats to Morgan and Ben on the arrival of their son Ronan.

Here is a look at images from both sessions:

River Valley Maternity Session

Pairing this stylish couple with the beautiful River Valley made for some great photos! As you might tell from the photos below, we had a blast with these two... lots of laughs for sure.

Mama-to-be is about to give birth any day now so we thought we'd share some of the images from their session with you.

Jennifer & David... and Carter

With Jennifer & David's son Carter turning 2 months old recently, we thought it was high time we posted the photos we took of the couple as they were preparing for the arrival of the little guy!

We met on a chilly October evening to get some photos of the couple only a few short weeks before their son was due to be born. Carter joined Jennifer & David on November 3rd. We are very happy for them all!

Here is a look at some of the photos from that day:


Elizabeth & Trent

This was probably one of my most favourite maternity sessions. The light was awesome. The weather was perfect. It all just clicked.

Elizabeth and Trent are on the verge of their new person making their appearance into the world. I think we probably got these pictures just in time. Elizabeth told me as we were shooting that Trent was a little apprehensive about the whole portrait session thing, but in the end, all three of us had a really good time.

Can't wait to meet your little human!

Marika & Steven - Maternity

We got to these shots right in time! Two days after these pictures were taken, Marika gave birth to the lovely, little Max.

With the weather being as cold as it has been, as late into the year as it has been, we took advantage of the long days and feet deep snow. When the cold got to us, we decided to return home and capture the last few moments before this couple became three.

Amy & Sam

Good friends of mine, Amy & Sam are having a baby. They are potentially having said baby on Halloween of all days. Oooooh.

We went out to the Prairie Gardens and Adventure Farm and took the shots on a warm, October Sunday. The colours were great and the sky quickly cleared up leaving some awesome backdrops for the pictures of baby to be.

Check out the Portraits section of the site for other shots from that day!
