2 month old Meea

This was my first time shooting an “older” newborn – it’s a different task than working with a brand new baby.  She was very curious and alert, nice to get that solid connection between her and the camera. Thank you to my friend for bringing her in to my studio to get photos done.

This family just welcomed their second boy. We did a nice relaxed natural newborn session in their house last week!

Kaila & John

18 Sep

This wedding was special to me to photograph as Kaila comes from a family I have known and cared about for many years! These two had a very difficult year after the birth of their son who had some heart complications for the first several months of his life. It was very wonderful to see them enjoy a day celebrating their love and family, surrounded by everyone close to them at a venue near and dear – Kaila’s camp.

It was definitely an afternoon of good country fun with a quad ride, bonfire, pig roast, and minnow racing.

Yung & Tom

12 Sep

Sometimes with couples from different backgrounds, there are multiple different traditions incorporated into one day. I was invited to attend and capture Yung and Tom’s traditional tea ceremony before their western style church ceremony. The tea ceremony took place at Yung’s parents’ home. It was very beautiful. Each important family member on both sides was introduced, with Yung coming out last, they exchanged rings and Yung was given special jewelry to wear. The couple served family members in gratitude while members gave the new couple their best wishes and advice.. such as CHILDEN, many children, but not too many children, oh but at least as many as in Yung’s family. Her dad let us know that in their culture, this is the most important day of their lives as parents. It was a joyful day indeed. Congrats Tom and Yung, I so very much enjoyed capturing your day!

 

Kelly & Josh

21 Aug

When I first met with Kelly and Josh they told me of their secret plans to elope which would then be followed up with a reception later in the summer at the Chanterelle. The elopement was photographed and displayed as a slideshow in the lounge, and was described during speeches – it sounded like the most special, fun, and adventurous time.

Speeches also highlighted the love and respect the family has for these two. They are beyond proud of and so happy for the new couple.

I loved this after-elopement party at the Chanterelle – and there could be no better space for it as Kelly is the amazing and talented manager of this coveted venue!

Congrats ❤

Cillian at two-weeks old: Putting on the pounds after a difficult start to feeding! Big boy didn’t stay keen on being wrapped, he just wanted to splay out.  His mama has been amazing at figuring out how to settle into this new role. Today was her first day home alone with baby as dad had to return to work.  I hope it was a lovely and cozy day.
