Andrew and Joelene | Together for Life {Grimsby Wedding Photographer}

Love will find a way.

Even from opposite sides of the world. Andrew and Joelene are from Canada and Australia respectively, and they first met when Joelene visited Canada a few years ago. At the time, nothing came of their meeting, other than a friendship. Then Joelene came to visit again and this time Andrew was designated her taxi driver until she got settled. Suddenly, they connected, and love grew. It wasn’t long before their friendship became a relationship, then an engagement, and on this beautiful day they were wed! Surrounded by family and friends,  as well as an amazing wedding party, they beamed from ear to ear. The weather was just perfect for a wedding- warm (not hot!) with a light breeze. God has blessed these two with an incredible love for one another and that, as well as their faith in Him was so visible throughout the day. Thank you Andrew and Joelene for asking me to document your wedding day! It was an honor, and so much fun as well. You had me going through all the emotions, from all teary eyed to laughing so hard to smiling till my face hurt. I pray that in your marriage you will continue to serve the LORD your whole life and that He will also bless you two. xo

Project 12 | October {Grimsby Family Photographer}

Today we celebrate Thanksgiving and I thought what better day to post our family picture for October? These are the people I love. I am so thankful for a wonderful husband and three healthy children to love on every day. I saw this on Facebook yesterday and I thought it was perfect:

I have what I need, I have more than I deserve. If I were to get what I deserve I would not even have what I need.

So today I am thankful to my Heavenly Father for the many blessings I have received. I am so unworthy, yet He gave me these people to love and care for and I couldn’t ask for more! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Pure Sweetness | Fresh Life {Dunnville Newborn Photographer}

A long time ago, I was contacted by Kaylee’s mother who was looking for a newborn photographer. I love when parents put a lot of thought into who will capture their baby’s very first weeks of life- for they grow and change SO quickly! I believe it is so important to capture those moments of fresh newborn peeling skin, little stubby bellybuttons, whisper soft eyelashes and tendrils of hair. These moments are so precious and sweet. Kaylee was born a few weeks early, so she was just a teeny tiny little thing at our session! I loved every moment. Hers was probably the fastest newborn session I’ve ever done!

The beautiful mohair flower headband is from the talented Andrea of Forever Handmade. I love how soft and delicate it is- perfect for a delicate little girl such as Kaylee!

Nixon is One | Exploring Life {Niagara Baby Photographer}

My little buddy- what can I say about you? You have brought so much joy and happiness into the lives of those around you. Your deep blue eyes, your red hair- always perfectly styled, your deep belly laughs and chuckles- definitely inherited from your daddy, your gentle way with your kitty, and your awesome sense of humor…these are just a few of the things I love about you. It has been so much fun this past year, photographing your milestones. Happy Birthday little dude!

To say he loved his cake was an understatement. He took to heart the ‘Smash’ part of the session- and then pretty much licked the floor clean! Amanda Rozema did an amazing job of both Nixon and Kingston’s cakes– they look so good and they taste AMAZING!

Matt & Courtney Cox | Together for Life {Niagara Wedding Photographer}

Yup, it’s true- I photographed the (new) Courtney Cox 😉

On a beautiful, hot weekend in August, I had the pleasure of photographing not one but two weddings. You can see Matt and Bethany’s Decew Falls wedding here. Their wedding was Friday, followed by Matt and Courtney’s wedding on Saturday. So fun!

We started the day at Courtney’s parents farm in Vineland as she got ready for the day with her bridesmaids and family all around her. Their wedding was beautiful and so was the wedding party! Their photos were taken at the beautiful Fielding Estate Winery in Vineland and then we headed to Lipa Park for the reception. Spirit of Sound did an amazing job with the sound during the reception and made us not even want to leave at the end of the night!

Project 12 | September {Grimsby Newborn Photographer}

It’s been one of those ‘awesome, super cozy, happy, warm fuzzy feelings kinda days’ today. Rain on the windows, baby sleeping, one daughter playing and the other in school, country music in the background and hot chocolate beside me as I edit. I <3 it!

I’m thankful for my calendar reminding me to post this, or I would have forgotten. Taken early September at the Beamsville Fair. We didn’t have much time and the kids wanted to play and people kept getting in the way…but it really inspired me to possibly have a session with our family at the fair next year! I love all the colors and the lights and the fun!!!
