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




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 ❤

Two weeks old

21 Aug

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.

A preview for this little family.  I wonder if this little one will be petite like mom or tall like dad?

Aundrea & Andrew – Red Lake Wedding

27 Jul

So this wedding was an adventure! It involved travel to a new place and a weekend away from Thunder Bay.

It was an epic day, starting first thing in the morning and going late into the night.  Hottest day ever (even though Thunder Bay has been having a hot summer I wasn’t prepared for 34 degrees in the shade all day), but a relieving thunderstorm rolled in late evening bringing some rain and an impressive lightning show over the lake.

Noteworthy moments: opening matching robes at the salon, little flower girls getting make up, father-son interactions, dad’s first look at Aundrea (who didn’t cry??), beautiful vows, Aundrea’s vows to her step-son (yes I cried!), fantastic speeches (someone tell Pat that was the best best-mans’ speech I have ever heard), thunder and lightning, great dance party, and Brodie’s dance moves.

Summer memories

25 Jul

This is what summer is all about. Trips to visit friends and family, camp, dinner outside, sandcastles, sunshine, wildflowers, wild kids, sauna and swimming…

These are some family photos with a sprinkling of friends included too.  Some of these folks left Thunder Bay and it was really nice to see them again, and meet the newest addition.



Kristen and family

13 Jul

These guys had separate houses and finally got to purchase a lovely forever home to raise the family in. I went out to the property last week and got some shots in between rainfalls and before a huge storm rolled in.  It was SO DARK I was shooting at ISO 2000 for all you folks who know that type of lingo.

Here are a few shots of Kristen, Kris, and the kids, Kendra and Khloe, also featuring the brick of a dog, Sophie
