Cassie & Drew's New Addition!

We photographed Cassie & Drew’s wedding last year and had a fantastic time! They are one of our absolute favourite couples. So we were thrilled to hear the news that they had recently added a member to their family.

Their daughter was born at the end of June and at the time of our session was just about a month old. Apart from a few crying moments, she did great! We love holding newborn sessions in the family’s own home. We feel it makes it more personal. The great light coming into Cassie & Drew’s bedroom made for a perfect setting for the bulk of the photos.

Congrats Cassie & Drew, we are so happy to see how your little girl has brightened your lives.

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:


We love new born lifestyle sessions.

It it so great to take photos of a new family in their home, among their things. It gives the photos such a personal feel. Atticus' (or Bat-ticus as he was dubbed in the session) shoot is a great example of that. The warmth of the light in the sitting room. The family all dressed in their finest uniforms.  This photo shoot screamed of the personality of this family.

We had such a great time working with these three. Hope you enjoy the glimpse at this fun session.

Baby George

Both Joelle and Andrew are really good friends of mine. I have had the pleasure of photographing their ever growing family over the years. Whether it be a maternity session,  1st year photos or them participating in our Fall Portrait Blitz  last year, I feel like I have documented a great portion of their recent lives.

...and now they welcome George to the family. We actually got shot with everyone including the two dogs this time! Quite a feat! Hope you enjoy these as much as I do.


This is Max.

You met his parents, Marika and Steven, just days before this little guy made his appearance. He is such a tiny little dude and SO patient.  

You could tell right away how much love these two had for their most recent addition. I think that really comes across in the shots below.

Check 'em out!
