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.



Doggo has a thing for marking chosen trees


NOT the first time he has peed on the tree they want



Last fall mini family session

3 Nov

I wrapped up my October minis with this nice family.  The kids were amazing for posing the first little bit and when they had their fill I told them to go have fun


Curniss and Chris

27 Oct

It can be common to see a couple tie their interests and tastes into their weddings.  It might be part of their theme – country, modern, classy, or in wedding favours, chosen flowers, etc.

Being a very outdoorsy couple, (you can read about their adventures over at followourfeet.com) Curniss and Chris originally did their ceremony on the Giant, doing a hike in with a couple close friends and someone to record it all.  We got to watch that film at the “official” friends and family ceremony at the Finlandia Hall.

It was a very northwestern Ontario party.  Pinetree Catering’s food truck for dinner, all their flowers were GROWN LOCALLY by a family friend (so beautiful and smelled amazing), the festivities took place downtown Port Arthur, close to our beautiful lake.

So thankful I got to be your photographer, guys!  Congratulations!


Becky and friends

24 Oct

Holidays are always good for getting the gang together.  Everyone was home over Thanksgiving, so Rebecca of Not your Basic Becky asked me if I could do a shoot with her and some of her besties at Gammondale Farm.  Click on the images to view larger!

Sarah & Mike – wedding preview

20 Oct

Starting with a well-attended ceremony at City Hall, and ending with a classy and fun reception at the Chanterelle, Sarah and Mike’s day was filled to the brim with love.

This was my first time both capturing a ceremony at City Hall and seeing the Chanterelle, so I was extra looking forward to this wedding._DSC4796logosm_DSC4800logosm_DSC4806logosm_DSC4826logosm_DSC4834logosm_DSC4856logosm_DSC4946logosm_DSC4980logosm_DSC5042logosm_DSC5065logosm_DSC5083v3logosm_DSC5119logosm_DSC5131v2logosm_DSC5152v2logosm_DSC5168logosm_DSC5211logosm_DSC5222v2logosm

As this was my first time shooting here, I am including a few of the candid-type shots I typically leave out of sneak peeks because, hey, it just looks so fun!  They had a cocktail-style reception with drinks and charcuterie – the type of party that felt pretty “big city” (but surrounded by everyone you know and love).  Awesome all around._DSC5291logosm


Prepping the OYSTER BAR (have you ever attended a wedding that had an oyster bar??)



Best wedding favours?


Congrats guys!  You were glowing with happiness on the wedding day and I can see it in the photos as well!

Fata Family

15 Oct

Another perfect day for some sunny golden fall photos!  Us mamas used to visit before the kids were all in school, so I brought my two little assistants with me to get re-acquainted and they ended up leaving with a rainbow loom bracelet each! 😀 We’re hoping the school boards have a few more coinciding PA days.

Onto a peek of this cute family!
