Wanna know of a cool wedding venue?  The Ocho Hotel in Toronto.  It pretty much encompasses everything you will want in a venue.  Cool atmosphere, funky decor, ample space and right downtown Toronto.  Add an awesome couple to the mix and this wedding ended my 2016 wedding season with a bang!  Megan and James were so relaxed the entire day.  We started out at their condo down at the waterfront.  Rarely do I get to shoot the groom and his friends getting ready.  But this time I did!  I love hanging out with the boys.  It’s so different from the girls.  I love the atmosphere of the girls the best, but it’s nice to mix things up a bit.  From there I headed to the Ocho.  Killer location.  The ladies were doing their thing with hair and makeup in the bridal suite.  What an awesome room!    I could have hung out there all day.

Megan and James opted for a First Look, which I always love.  Getting to watch such a cute part of the wedding always makes me so excited.  We headed out to the streets to knock out the formal photos.  Best thing about Megan and James was their willingness to do whatever.  Sure I’ll hang out in an alley way in Chinatown in my bridal wear.  No problem!  The ceremony was quick and painless and then off to the party.  And party they did.  Megan and James were surrounded by so many loving friends and family.  It was a true testament to who they are as a couple.  Congratulations to Megan and James as you embark on your first anniversary in the next 10 days!!

I love photographing an in-home maternity session.  I love the organic feeling, and the non posed look.  I feel like I’m in my element when shooting this way.  When Lauren contacted me about doing her maternity session this way I was so excited.  When I got to her house in Toronto on the day of her photo session, I almost did a back flip as I walked in the door.  Not only is her house decorated like it came straight out of a designer website or magazine, but holy &$%* she is gorgeous.  Like stunning.  Not a slight of an exaggeration there.  This was one of the easiest maternity sessions I’ve ever shot.  Lauren and her equally awesome husband were so cool. So calm.  So relaxed.  I felt like I was photographing celebrities because I was giggling the entire time.  They must have thought I was a little nuts.  I am, but they didn’t know that then.  I guess they do now.  Anyways, take a look below and tell me I’m wrong.  Dare you.

I love heading back to my old stomping grounds of Toronto.  I do miss living there.  Luckily for me I get to come back all of the time for work.  Jamie and Gillian are downtown natives.  They grew up in the same neighbourhood together.  They wanted their engagement session to take place in the neighbourhood where they first met.  I love adding sentimental elements like this to a shoot.  Afterwards we headed over to Alexander Muir Gardens.  Let me tell you, this place is gorgeous.  I’ve never shot there and can’t wait to come back.  There is so much to use.  Take a look for yourself!

Every mom needs to do a photo session with their children.  I’ve decided that it should be a rule.  Jenn contacted me about doing a shoot for her son’s first birthday.  We decided to incorporate Finn’s older sister Taylor and make sure mom was in almost all of the shots.  Moms don’t exist enough in photos.  We all know that.  So it’s going to become my mission at every family session I do from here on in to make sure that mom exists.  It’s important.  We do a lot.  We don’t get a lot of recognition for it.  It’s a thankless job, but a necessary one.

So we headed to my favourite spot in Kitchener, the Huron Conservation Area, and took advantage of the gorgeous Fall colours and light.  Taylor and Finn were awesome.  They loved spending time with mom.  It was special for both of them.  I need one of these sessions with my own kiddos.
