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!

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!

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!
The bagpiper was amazing! The sound of bagpipes is just so dramatic and gave me goosebumps!
Thanks so much Matt and Courtney for asking me to be a part of your day! I wish the two of you a long and happy life together!

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!!!

Greyson was so good for his session with me, despite being older than usual for a newborn shoot. His mommy had looked for newborn photographers while still pregnant with him, but she had not found anything that fit her style in her area. Then she saw images from baby Porter’s newborn session (she worked with Porter’s mommy) and she E-mailed me right away. I am so glad she did! I was honored that she drove an hour to get to me with two little ones in the car- I know what that can be like! Here are a few images from Greyson’s newborn session:

Matt and Bethany- two fun-loving, outgoing, friendly people who are 100% in love. Their wedding day was filled with laughter, tears and so many smiles. Their friends and family and their beloved dog baby were all there to celebrate with them as they were married by Matt’s grandmother at the newly restored Decew House with the sky as their roof. For two people who love the outdoors, it was perfect.
The beautiful reception was at Amici’s Banquet Hall– they always have the most stunning decor and amazing food! The people who work there are top-notch, always looking out for everyone’s needs. I love photographing there!
I love how Matt got so choked up during his vows that he could hardly speak- and when he got through them all, Bethany high-fived him!

In light of upcoming Demi-Sessions, (have you signed up yet?!) here’s a post on What to Wear. I am loving the fresh colors paired with the warm coffee and oatmeal tones. And the textures in the ruffles, knits and tweeds are so pretty. It all looks so cozy!
I just love fall- and I can’t wait to meet all my clients on October 22!
