Fall Family| Bolduc

I’m not the kind of person who makes friends very easily. Having been burned more than a few times, I find I am very reserved when it comes to making new friends and meeting new people. Laurissa came into my life about two years ago. I decided to sign up my oldest daughter Lila for a dance class as she loves to prance around the house making up some seriously bizarre moves and singing away.

When we got there I was as usual a hot mess hauling a car seat and telling Lila to hurry as we were going to be late (once again as usual). There we were met with two other moms and their kids and of course the first thing to jump to my mind was “ohmygod I can’t do this…” But I got Lila’s slippers on and one of the sweet girls grabbed her hand and said “Hi I’m Millie” and off they ran together with Audrey (I’ll introduce this sweet soul in another blog) to get to their dance class.

The girls have been friends ever since greeting each other with hugs so big it brings tears to my eyes every time it happens (which is like three days a week haha), Lila has a mad crush on Laurissa’s older son Liam, Stella (my younger daughter) always loves playing with her youngest daughter Eliza and I couldn’t be happier to say that Laurissa is truly one of the only friends I willing let hug me. They are like warm cookies and tea on a cold rainy, kind of day hugs that warm you right to your toes and her soul is the sweetest of souls.

Spring Maternity|Stather

This is another family that I have been so lucky to hold on to throughout the years of growing from a couple of two to a family of four. I photographed engagements for Crystal and Chris years ago, and since then they have turned into a family of four with two absolutely gorgeous little girls. And while this session was before the arrival of little Miss Claire, her sweet and hilarious big sister totally stole the show with this shoot. Keep scrolling to find out why and I guarantee you, you will be smiling and laughing out loud!

Spring Maternity|Stather

I’ve been shooting this family since before they were a family. I have loved watching them grow in every sense of the word. I was so excited when Crystal told me she was expecting another baby this spring, so we planned for a maternity shoot, which was quickly taken over by little miss madam! We were absolutely killing ourselves laughing over her posing her self and just kicking her feet up in my little chair, completely uncoached. Tears just rolling down my face as I shot image after image of her setting herself up. I love sessions like this where I feel part of your family and I get to capture these hilarious, happy delightful moments. Miss S – don’t ever change that darling personality of yours, it will take you far!

Winter Maternity|Bader

I can’t believe this session was a year and a half ago! I met with Nicolette and Sam during one of the craziest weather systems we’ve had in a really long time with long periods of fog leaving THE MOST AMAZING hoar frost you have ever seen. It was a photographers winter wonderland dreamscape and I wanted to take full advantage of it. It took Nicolette a little bit of convincing but I got her in the end and the result was nothing short of gorgeous!

Mom & Me|Laurissa

I met this amazing lady through my daughters first dance class and have become fast friends. She is the type of friend that makes friendship easy and fun and everything I look for in a friendship. My daughter squeals with excitement over seeing one of her very best friends, so it’s always a visit I look forward to having for both our sakes.

 

Newborn|Arias

I met with this family almost a year ago, it’s hard to believe how quickly time passes. They were super sweet and totally laid back and all my kind of weird humour. Easy to say I loved them immediately. Their sweet baby girl was no different and slept throughout her entire session, I remember laughing as her parents were like she’s never slept this long in her 7 day life…sooooo do you nanny…at night…so we can sleep. This was one of the last posed newborn sessions that I have done as I will be switching over to a lifestyle type of session.
