Something old…


Something new…


Something borrowed…


Something blue…


WAIT! Something blue…

Old tradition combined with periods of torrential rain means a lifetime of good luck! While it’s nice to believe old wives tales may be true, it’s more likely the predictor of a wonderful, happy, married life is love, respect, and common values. Jackie and Greg have these qualities and many more! Surrounded in love for each other and from family and friends seems an ideal start to a lifetime of happiness… but Greg… I wouldn’t get too used to sitting on the bike ;)






Choosing a date for outside portraits is always tricky, especially in winter! Waiting for snow – but not too much snow. and then there’s the -20 degree issue to worry about. Imagine our luck to pick the perfect day! Even luckier for me to travel to Saint John, NB, to capture these beautiful engagement photos in the city where they live. I can’t wait for their spring wedding!! Hopefully Jackie has picked yet another perfect day…








What a perfect day – the smell of salt water, perfect temperature, wonderful people, fabulous photographs!! It was a beautiful sunny day. Well maybe that part was not so good… Thanks to Matt and Vanessa for having the best sense of humour EVER, wonderful family and friends, and a sense of daring (aka white wedding dress and beach). It was obvious to me, a perfect stranger, that Mr. and Mrs. Cuzner share a true love based on all of the above mentioned qualities. Thank you for making me feel at home on your special day!






I have been looking through the many photos of Kieran Rose from our recent newborn session and I am honestly having a difficult time deciding which to post! This beautiful little round bundle of joy was a mere 5 pounds, 4 ounces at birth but is quickly catching up in size. Although she was not entirely happy about the process, she still managed to look fabulous for her photos. I’m already looking forward to the next session…




Some day you will know the name Alyssa Clarke. It is impossible for someone who has the strength and courage of this sweet child to not grow up to be someone special! And while her family, friends and the community around her knows this to be true already – it’s only a matter of time before she inspires you too.

This must be baby season! And I’m loving it!! This is my third newborn in the past week or so and there are several more on the way. You may think newborns are easy to photograph since they don’t move around… you would be incorrect. This little guy didn’t want his picture taken. He wanted milk. He doesn’t like to lay on his belly. And he wanted to sleep – and sleep some more. He was jostled, tickled, had his forehead blown upon to no avail. Newborns do what they want regardless of how excited parents are to have wonderful pictures of their precious little bundle. And Trysten is a precious little bundle :o) Congratulations Julie and Rob. I look forward to watching him grow up.

Thanks for the hats mom!!!




Is there a better gift for Valentines’ Day than saying “I Do”? I can’t imagine that promising to love one another forever in a church, in front of God, family and friends can be outdone. The Valentines’ eve ceremony between Emma and Gary was lovely! A beautiful candlelight ceremony with only the very closest of family and friends, followed by an equally intimate dinner, are memories that will be relived for a lifetime. I am happy they chose me to capture their wedding portraits. I hope you enjoy them forever as well.
