simon says: i’m born

Before we had our baby I used to dream about newborn photo ops, outfits, backgrounds- capturing every little moment and detail of this new life on my camera. When we had him reality hit- when does anyone have time to take photos of a newborn?! My camera remained in it’s bag as I attended to far more important matters, like learning how to breastfeed, crying on my mom’s shoulder, sleeping whenever I could and of course, falling in love with the baby I was holding! Thankfully I did manage to take a few here and there, to at least document this sweet and fleeting stage before it’s gone.

my maternity photoshoot. 34 weeks.

I love being pregnant. It’s been the most incredible experience of my life to date, I honestly have been just savoring every day.

I really don’t like being in front of the camera, I am much more comfortable holding one! But this week I decided I needed to suck it up and finally document this growing belly of mine before baby is out of there and in my arms!

avalon peninsula

We went to Newfoundland at the end of September- on one of the days we decided to do a little day drive called the Irish Loop on the Avalon Peninsula. Here are some bits of that drive and some from St. John’s/Signal Hill too.

doug & maureen: married

I met Doug and Maureen out in Edmonton a while back. Little did I know, a couple years later they’d be getting hitched and would ask me to shoot their big day! Maureen is originally from PEI AND not only that, her family owns Rossignol Winery in Little Sands. Needless to say, they knew where they would be getting married. It was definitely a dream venue and a dream wedding.

This couple is talented, loving and lovely. So happy we got to share this with you guys!
