Family Beach Session

10 Jul

This session was SO GOOD. Summer morning at Mission Island is officially the best location for pictures of kids.  I had to share some of these because I just love them so much. It was a pleasure to photograph this wonderful and fun family!

The blossoms at Hillcrest

13 Jun

I love posed proper pictures, sure, but I super love capturing the innocence and freedom of childhood in candids as well! Such a good balance. This is such a cute set with this family I wanted to share a bunch for this sneak peek.

A New Find!

6 Apr

Something different than I usually post here, but I do love to also include photo essays, and little documentations.  I love photographing people and events as a job, but photography is liiiiiife.

I went on a little walk while I had time to kill between coffees-with-friends and had a chance to get over to Deja Vu.  I’ve been in a few times, but most often I’m in the area when it’s closed (and instead drooling over furniture as I peer through the windows? ugh).

Okay, so: a few weeks ago I had a bright idea that we needed a clothing consignment shop downtown – yes there are some, but I was thinking something more likely to also appeal to the younger crowd, with higher end/newer things.  …How pumped was I to stroll into Deja Vu and see they totally have a consignment area for clothes now?

So pumped.  I even scored a hot pair of shoes (not shown in the images below unfortunately)

You’ll find this awesome little shop with its lovely owner on the corner of Cumberland and Park.

I was happy to see some local art, and products by local artisans in there as well. People who know me will see these pictures and see lots of thingies I like, hahaha, it’s not a surprise I wanted to whip my camera out.

Family Traditions

29 Dec

While everyone is still somewhat in holiday spirit, I thought I had better post a little photo essay of the Esposti family Christmas tradition.  Every year they all go out to the Tree Farm just outside of Thunder Bay and pick out their trees.  This would be Cayson’s First! So it was important to Greg and Amanda to get some photos documenting this annual tradition with their new addition.

Contest Winners!

21 Oct

My other contest winners had their fall session this week.  THIS KID was my favourite.  Oh my goodness.  He didn’t really want his picture taken, but he cackled a lot and blew me kisses, so I guess that’s a win?!  He made me laugh a lot and I’m sure he’ll charm you all in this preview of their fall family shoot.
