Holiday 2017 Moments

It's that time of the year where I scramble to catch up to all the December work that got lost in the depths of Christmas and New Year's only to collide with re-settling back into our regular school and work schedule.  Thank you to this year's Holiday Session Crew for allowing me to create some very sweet and very hilarious and very memorable moments of you and your loved ones to look back on as the years go by.  I hope every enjoyed the last weeks of 2017 and that 2018 has already brought about some refreshing energy and excitement!

A few of many favourite moments from this year's Holiday Sessions...

For what it’s worth... it’s never too late, or in my case too early,
to be whoever you want to be.
There is no time limit. Start whenever you want.
You can change or stay the same.
There are no rules...

We can make the best of the worst of it.
I hope you make the best of it.
I hope you see things that startle you.
I hope you feel things you’ve never felt before.
I hope you meet people who have a different point of view.

I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you’re not,
I hope you have the courage to start over again.
— F. Scott Fitzgerald

Good words to keep in mind for 2018

Holiday 2016 Crew

Thank you for your patience!  We are into 2017 and I'm months behind on updating here.  The tail-end of 2016 was the hardest and longest stretch but it's over and I feel terrific for all the challenges I was able to take on and the experiences I opened myself to.  As is my custom, sending warm wishes of love and happiness and success to everyone who participated in our Holiday Sessions!  A few quick favourites...


Thank you for a fabulous 2016!

Holiday 2015 - Last Squeeze!

My New Year's Resolution should be to do a better job keeping up with blog updates here!  So in the last weeks before Christmas I squeezed in a few lovely new clients for Holiday Sessions.  I love these so much I wish I had made time to do some with my own kids!  

Til Next Year

Til later This Year!




A huge thank you to all my 2015 clients for making this year the best one yet!  I had a blast capturing some stellar moments for you and your loved ones (kids, babies, and fur babies!).  It was extra special getting to do these sessions in our new home, and with so many familiar faces no less.  

This is my 4th year of Holiday Sessions;  4 years ago, I was working part-time as a cashier at Thrifty's.  A friend had requested I do some family photos for her at the end of summer and it was then that I decided to quit my cashier position and try my hand at becoming a photographer.  These Holiday Sessions were my very first gig as part of a Fundraiser at my kids' preschool, the gig that started them all!  I've come a long way and I have learned so very very much!  A couple of you have been a part of these Holiday Sessions since the beginning and for that, I truly truly thank you for your faith and support each year!  Many of you I have known for years, some a lifetime, and still others whom I am just getting to know.  The best part of my job is becoming part of your life, not just documenting you and your loved ones' physical existence at a specific moment in time, and not just capturing a pretty picture to share on social media, but capturing your joy and your spirit.  I want my photos to be your favourite photos, the ones that you look back on time and time again as the years go by and we all get a little wiser; the ones that make you smile without fail because the feelings keep rushing back.  I do my best to do for you what I do for myself with my family.  In fact, many of you may as well be my family at this point, HA!  Time to wrap up here...  

It was really difficult to choose just one photo from each session (seriously, it's taken me 2 days of editing a few different photos and changing my mind a million times…) but here they are in order from first to last!  Hugo gets two because his peacock walk is the perfect way to end this hahahha
