summer sessions - - katie b.

Blog posts really don't do this relationship justice. I've probably shot katie more times than anyone else and it will never get old. Hair and makeup was more extensive this time around but the final result was well worth the struggle! It seems that when we're together the stars align and everything works out perfectly. I'm so thankful to my husband for acquiring the antlers and my good friend brittany for letting us borrow the upstairs of her house. I love these photos and love katie even more. I'm so proud of the model she's become and I know she'll be famous. I can only hope she remembers me when she's on the cover of Italian Vogue.

summer sessions - - hilary & kyle

I've known Hilary for a number of years. She's grown up into such a wonderful lady and I had such a great time shooting them. Cute couple! These guys were so easy to shoot, and such a joy to spend time with. I hope one day I'll have the honour of shooting their wedding photos.

summer sessions - - summer wedding.

This was more than just shooting a wedding to me. The bride is one (of two) of my bestest of friends. Tab and I have been tight since highschool and I see no end in our friendship for many decades to come. I haven't known Ian nearly as long but (I hope) we have become fast friends. I couldn't handpick someone more loving, supportive, hilarious or compatible for Tab. Not only are they loyal, great friends to Michael and I, they are wonderful parents to whom I can only admire and respect. Their son is such a light in my life (and everyone who surrounds him) I am so ridiculously honoured to be his godmamma. Tab is seriously one of the most amazing people I've ever met, and I'm SO SO thrilled that she's found a love we all hope and pray for.

Their wedding day, though hot, went off without a hitch. I've never seen Tab look more beautiful and I've never seen Ian so proud to have Tab on his arm. I wish them only happiness and laughter. Being a part of their special day meant more to me than being able to take their photos. I'm so glad Tab hung in for all the photos and I so hope that I can do her beauty justice. Here's a couple favourites from the day.

summer sessions - - awesome family.

Frances is seriously one of my favourite people on the planet, and her kid is the best kid I know. I hope my kids can be as nerdy and awesome as Drake. A visit with these guys was LOOOONG overdue, as was a family picture for them. So it worked out quite well and was such a great day. This family is probably the thing I miss most about living in London.

summer sessions - - three ladies.

I love repeat clients, and especially ones that are easy on the eyes. This mother daughters trio was such a joy. This was my second shoot at this mill and it really is such a great location. These ladies were so funny and full of life. It made me wish I had a sister, and made me truly appreciate my momma. I love seeing families remain close, as so many do not. Such a great shoot, awesome ladies. Thanks!!
