Photoshoot

Holly + Peter: Engaged

There have been so many of these snow storms in Montreal this winter, I'm so happy we caught the perfect one to be outside taking photos for H+P's engagement shoot! The drive wasn't particularly fun but I'm happy that I found this trail in the West Island, bordering Laval. I never would have known it existed unless, like this day, I was worried about driving too far and had to search locally. What a sweet find!

I'm so excited that Holly and Peter will be one of my couples getting hitched this summer! They were unbelievably fun and easy to work with. We walked the trails and they just did their thing. Everything was easy with them. I battled a little with my camera which so badly wanted to focus on the snow in between us. It was entirely worth it, how perfect is this setting?

Congrats to this couple, I'm beyond excited to share their wedding day, soon enough! 

Dara & Dylan | Expecting

2017 is coming to a close and I see big changes already since this time in 2016. Every year l to look back and see where the year brought me. So many new faces, techniques I've adopted or perfected, for lack of a better word; I never claim that anything I've done is perfect. Growing is essential and always part of the thrill to keep going. It's something to strive for. The moments I feel close, I've already moved toward something new to move towards. Photography is exciting this way.

Dara and I faced the cold last week for what is one of my last 2017 shoots. Last year we met for her engagement. I'm so thrilled for her and Dylan, who are expecting in as little as a week from today. Obviously 2017 meant great things for them! I feel lucky we had this sunset to use, albeit cold. Dara was a sport to take off her jacket for a few moments at a time. A smart move, this girl rocks pregnancy more than I can ever hope to!

So congratulations, to these two lovely people! I'm looking forward to seeing them and so many others celebrate the pinnacle moments in their lives in 2018!

Happy New Years to you all!

Sarah + Dave + 1

Today is the absolute perfect time to share Sarah + Dave's maternity shoot, which we did over the (Canadian) Thanksgiving weekend. Last night, they welcomed their little girl into the world! Happy and healthy, dark hair, a whole 7 pounds 9 ounces!

 You know I love an overcast day but even more than that I love endless quiet fields to play in. It got to a point where Sarah and I were wearing more mud on our feet than we were wearing boots, but it's all worth it.

We were also lucky to find a patch of sunflowers along the road. The owner of the property was more than generous about letting us take photos there. It's all part of my, "It'll never happen unless you ask" motto. Or you know, trespass, but luckily we didn't have to do that.

Congratulations to this mom and dad, who are going to be insanely loving and awesome parents!
