Sometimes you just need a really long hug. Two of my dear friends have lost their fathers this past week. I wanted to take a second to send them both a huge, virtual hug. Much love @life_of_glow and @celiasloan ! #hugsforrobyn
Meet Angus. He’s a beautiful, huge, loving Bernese Mountain Dog...and yes...he was soaked with river water and covered in mud. Midgie loves him so much and wants to move to a farm so she can have a river and an Angus dog...😂
I think they believe if they stare at the ground long enough it will dry up. Chief is ready to resume his squirrel hunting, and I’m ready to not have to wipe dog paws every time he comes back inside. I love rainy days, but having a house full of energetic boys and dogs kind of takes the fun out of lounging around when they’re bouncing off the walls, or chewing up toys.
I sent this to Vic as a sneak peek from her latest session with #thefirstyearpackage that her family signed up for. She shared it on her Facebook with the caption ‘my whole world in one photo’ and as a photographer that is all I can ask for. That I am creating these images for you that are your world and that are showing you that Life’s Beautiful The Way It Is.
Raise your hand if you see and know the value in family photography but your partner feels the opposite of how you do. I know that one of my biggest obstacles is helping dad’s see the value in what I offer. And so I asked a bunch of my dad clients how they feel about the photos I take for them and I was blown away by their answers. 🚨 Future newsletter alert 🚨But before I write this newsletter, I wanted to first share a quote from Sean, a dad who sees the value in family photography. “As phone-obsessed as we are as a society, we will always have pictures of our kids doing random dopey things; thousands of slightly blurry, out of focus shots of one or the other of us attempting to capture the moment, as well as the ever-present selfies with everybody's head trying to be crammed into the frame, but to have photos of a typical "day in the life" with all 4 of us is truly special. Your sessions with us really capture a sense of what life was like with them at each point in time; the barely controlled chaos, the laughter, the goofball moments, and I can look at them now and be transported back to those moments. I'm so glad we did them.” #lifesbeautifulthewayitis
Well I haven’t done a #throwback in a while and I was just looking back at old pics and saw this one. Probably my most favourite picture of my fur baby and my big girl. I can not get enough of watching them together. If only they were more obedient and would pose for cute pictures for me 😂🤷🏻♀️❤️
I am a firm believer of practising what you preach. Which is why I booked a documentary session last fall with a photographer and why I have already booked another one with my friend @shannonlaliberte for this coming fall. There are so many reasons why I’m grateful I did the session last year. One of them is to have the images of my first apartment to remember because in July, I am moving into a cute little bungalow. And there are so many reasons why I’m excited for my session this fall and one of them is I will have images of me in my new home. The best part about already having my session with Shannon booked is that I have already paid for half of it which gives me peace of mind knowing that the remainder is due in September. Plus who doesn’t love to have something fun to look forward to?! I’m so excited to have beautiful images of me in my new home with my animals. I’m so happy I’ve booked another session in the fall and honestly, think this will be a continuing thing for me. It’s not until you practise what you preach that you really see the value in what you do. #lifesbeautifulthewayitis
