I love to shoot portrait photography! And the shot is always better when my subject is unaware that I am there. It's great fun and I am always honoured when asked to do it.

Katie & Jay

Katie & Jay are my newest clients.
We met for the first time this past Wednesday
at Burnham Park in Peterborough.
Katie is just a tiny little thing and Jay is 6'4"!
They were fun and easy to photograph.

One of the best things about being so new to the Peterborough area, is that I get to see all of these lovely parks for the first time! Burnham Park was their is beautiful.

We went for quite the little hike during our time together...I was huffing and puffing!
I had gear to carry...yeah...let's go with that excuse!

Beautiful smiles and warm hearts!

I am looking forward to photographing your wedding next October!

It was so great to meet and spend time with you both.
Thank you.

Jeff and Julia are not just clients...they are friends.

This is the second time I have had the pleasure of photographing their beautiful little family.

Their little boy is such a joy. All smiles all the time!

I could just eat him up!

I couldn't stop clicking the shutter...he's just so cute!
And funny, funny funny!

I was piling leaves on my head to make him worked for mom and dad too.

It was fun.

We shot at Port Weller beach in St.Catharines. It's one of my favorite spots.
You get both the beach and the park setting.

He LOVED this...wee!
Big smiles...
...and more smiles!

Aren't they adorable?
I love them!

This last shot was Julia's idea. I think it turned out well.

Thank you so much for asking me to photograph your family again.

Bambi Cantrell comes to Canada!

I am huge fan of Bambi Cantrell! I have been for many years. When I heard
she was coming to do a workshop in Burlington...I knew I had to attend.
What a day it was. I enjoyed every single minute and learned so just one day!
American Photo magazine names her as one of the best "10 wedding photographers in the world."
I like this shot...Bambi and her little ducks. We all just followed her lead.
She has SO much energy.

Our little model Laura...adorable! Poor girl...there was one model for all ten of us to share.
I felt like the paparazzi!

We had fun playing with different light.
The whole shoot was with available light only.

Laura was a good sport...she did whatever we asked. "Sure" was her answer to everyone of us!

Dragging the shutter! I love the feel of this one. A bride rushing to the ceremony maybe?
This was one of my favorites. Bambi's idea....of course!

The master at work. She was amazing to watch...very funny too.
She really is so talented.
Thanks Bambi for coming to Canada!
