ET Baby!

ET-baby1-b&w-webGabriel is 5 months old now!!  It only just seems like yesterday that Liane told me that she was expecting.  We had a wonderful session yesterday afternoon and the weather could not have been more cooperative!  Gabriel is a delightful baby.  And he was super patient with all the shenanigans that we put him through.  What a cutie pie!!!! I'm looking forward to the 1 year photos!


Java lives down the street from me.  He is known throughout the neighbourhood.  His owner walks him everywhere.  Even my crazy girl Alika enjoys going out on a walk with Java.  I had the opportunity to take a few photographs of him yesterday.  He always seems to have a smile on his face.  He's such a great dog!


Eric Larose

Eric is a fun kind of guy.  I first met him while taking a public speaking class with Steve Lowell (another great guy!).  Eric is the kind of guy who will put you at your ease and is someone that you can trust.  We had a great session earlier this summer getting some business portraits of him.  He was up for pretty much anything!  This is one of my favourites from the session.


Eric is a consultant with Manulife.  Please feel free to visit Eric at Manulife.  I'm sure that he would love to hear from you.

50th Wedding Anniversary


34940_449288766354_580001354_6563425_3061511_nSimone and Lisnel recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. I want to thank them for allowing me to photography their celebrations.

They arrived in style!! The car is from the era of when they were first wed. Isn't it amazing!

Baby Gabriel

Gabriel copy

A huge congratulations to Liane and Frank!! I had a wonderful time photographing their newest family member. He is such a sweet baby. Modeling is a hard job. Just ask Gabe, he promptly fell asleep after the session to recover!




I had the pleasure of photographing Lloyd a few weeks ago. He was a great little guy and dearly loved by his owner. It's always difficult to post about a dog that has passed. They just don't stay with us long enough!

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Dogs and jewellery


Who would have thought that dogs and jewellery go together?! Or horses and jewellery? Or elephants and jewellery for that matter??? I really enjoyed myself photographing some of Sandy Goldsmith's pieces today. We were on a roll by the end of the session!

Great expectations




I had an absolute blast yesterday photographing my friend Liane who is a first time mom to be.  I'm so excited and happy for her.

A shot of her looking down at her toes sticking out from her belly was fun to capture!

Looking positively wonderful in her pregnancy.


Mom and Dad enjoying some time together.

Hearts and babies just go together!

Big brother is getting excited about the little one.


Many hands are needed to raise a baby!
