Peter and Molli

It may have been a small and private celebration for these two, but the evening was still packed full of both laughter and tears, silly faces and hugs. The lovebirds tied the knot in the great outdoors, then danced together in a nearby coffee shop.                                                  […]

the Sanfords

These ladies were a joy to photograph! Isabella was outgoing and eager; Jenna warmed up to me eventually and gave me some wide smiles. We used pumpkins and leaves for this fall afternoon shoot, but the trio were enough to make for some gorgeous pictures.

the Marcils

This shoot was busy, but oh so fun. With six kids and two adults to corral, I appreciated how cooperative everyone was. We used my neighbor’s gorgeous farm for this fall shoot, with plenty of neat backdrops for pictures of the whole group, and each individual child. The trees were an especially big hit.   […]

These boys were too cute! I loved that they all had matching tie-dye shirts for our shoot in a Massena park. They were cooperative and innovative, and we had a blast taking some really fun photos.                           More photos of this foursome are on my Facebook […]

the Barksdales

I am always thrilled when I have the chance to work with clients more than once, so imagine my delight when I was asked to continue an annual tradition with this family for the fourth year. Each summer we head out to a different park and I snap away while the kids pose and play. […]

the Dumonds

A miniature golf course is a great setting for a photo shoot, just so you know. A friend of mine asked me take some pictures of her family at their business, Oasis Mini Golf and Driving Range, in Limoges, Ont., and of course I was all over it. It was a hot but fabulous summer […]

the Williamsons

My husband had reserve training for two weeks this summer, so rather than mope around the house mourning his absence, I embarked on a brief road trip around Ontario. One stop was in London, to visit one of my favourite cousins and her gorgeous family. One evening we packed up the kids and headed to […]

Zac and Fiona

This young couple chose a gorgeous state park in Vermont to tie the knot, with the sparkling Lake Champlain as a backdrop as they said their vows in front of a small group of friends and family. As both the bride and groom are fitness enthusiasts, they used an image of a tandem bicycle to grace their […]

the Gilberts

I met this lovely couple a few weeks before our photo shoot, along with their adopted daughter Elsie. The family brought me out to a parcel of land where they hope to build a home someday, and it provided a perfect setting for a fun session.                     […]

Dan and Lydia

I was surprised and honoured when my cousin’s daughter sent me a message asking if I would be willing to travel to central Ontario to photograph her nuptials. It was an absolutely lovely day, from the ceremony in a little country church to the reception at her parent’s farm. The horses pulling the bride and […]

Lena, Zoee and Clare

These sisters were eager to smile and super cooperative, which made this shoot a complete breeze. It was so fun to work with them, especially since I did some photos with the trio last summer, during a session with their entire clan. I always love when I have the chance to capture the growth of […]

DJ and Saarah

Okay, I’m not going to lie. This couple is kind of special to me. I would never have thought to put them together … but they just happened to run into each other – at my wedding! They hit it off right away, he proposed this summer and they will be married next spring. We had […]

Relay for Life

I’ve been to a number of Relay for Life events over the last few years in a reporter capacity, but this was the first time I attended as the official photographer for the Massena/Louisville chapter of the American Cancer Society. It was a lovely sunny evening, with everything from dance performances to Zumba to keep […]

Sara, the senior

It’s hard to believe this amazing young lady is graduating from high school this month; I’ve known her since she was a little kid. We had a fun shoot to mark the milestone, incorporating both music and lifeguarding, as both were major parts of her life over the last few years.          […]

the Rhodes girls

My nieces were in town for a week this spring, so of course they donned beautiful dresses and we headed to the beach for a photo shoot. They were so much fun, and Kahlynn was especially cooperative considering her arm was encased in a bright pink cast.                   […]

the Colbert family

I adore this family. The trio of boys are rambunctious and full of life; their parents are patient and compassionate. Beyond just capturing some family portraits, the purpose of our shoot was to create an announcement for the Colbert’s friends and relatives that they are embarking on the journey towards adoption. How cool to be […]

Danica

This sweet two-month old needed some momma time in the middle of our shoot, but after falling asleep she was simply picture perfect. Several of the photos ended up on canvases and mugs as gifts for grandmas, grandpas and daddy.         Check out more photos of this beauty on my Facebook page.

Kale and Cierra

This hunting-themed wedding was a perfect display of the bride and groom’s personalities. With a huge family and loads of friends to help celebrate the big day, we barely noticed the rather chilly temperatures outside.               There’s plenty of other pictures from this lovely wedding in their Facebook album.

the Fregoe family

This delightful family of four invited me into their home just prior to Christmas for a holiday-themed shoot. Liam and Aiden were adorable in their white lights and winter hats, and provided some great fodder for fun photos.

This beautiful family welcomed me into their home for a Christmas-themed shoot, before we went to a nearby apple orchard for some wintery backdrops. They were fabulous to work with and I love the resulting photos.

baby Bennett

I was very excited to photograph this adorable two-month old. He was incredibly cooperative, offering up perfect smiles in the beginning and then sleeping soundly while we added props and adjusted his poses.

the Eddy family

These brave souls headed out into the chilly November air on a Saturday morning for a long-overdue family photo shoot. Megan, Tad and Luc were more than willing to show off some of their skills for the camera, from bow hunting to basketball and hockey, to sledding down their backyard hill. It made for a […]

Peter and Rebecca

I had the great honour of photographing my cousin Peter’s wedding in November 2012. He and his wife, Rebecca, had a beautiful wedding despite the cool weather. Even the few snowflakes that fell in the evening only added to the beauty of the day.                         […]

the Lincoln family

I’m slightly bias when it comes to this family, as they’re part of my family. We invaded a farm that I had been eying for months as an ideal photo location, and it did not disappoint. It was a little chilly, but they were great sports for this afternoon session.

Jason and Caitlin

The wedding of Jason and Caitlin was incredibly unique and so lovely to shoot. The groom is a pilot, so naturally their small and intimate wedding was held at an airfield. Despite the chilly day in October 2012, the fall leaves were in all their glory to showcase the celebration.               […]

Alison and Andre

After several years of marriage, it was time for some new “couple” shots for my good friends Alison and Andre. We headed out to Grey’s Creek in Cornwall on a cool fall day in 2012, and I had a blast capturing their personalities with some fun poses.                   […]

Connor and Will

These boys are two of the cutest kids you’ll ever meet. I had the chance to do some fun photos with the brothers at their grandparents’ house in September of 2012.

Love Massena

A non-profit organization in Massena, NY, called Compassion North, held a fantastic community event in the summer of 2013. Dubbed “Love Massena”, dozens of volunteers converged on a park in the middle of town with free food, balloon animals and games. Hundreds of visitors stopped by for live entertainment, face painting, and sports clinics. It […]

the Cook clan

It was a windy day in the summer of 2013, but we managed to catch enough breaks in between the rain to capture each branch in the Cook family tree. Their smiles were beautiful and the gorgeous St. Lawrence River provided a lovely backdrop for the clan gathering. Here’s a few of the top shots. […]

My lovely cousin, Susan, and her beautiful family braved a chilly day in the fall of 2010 for a photo shoot on Belleville’s waterfront. All of the kids were super cooperative and a joy to photograph.

It was such a fabulous day when my friends Brittany and Andrew tied the knot in May of 2012. They had some great ideas for photos and their bridal party was super fun to work with. I absolutely loved the evening light we were able to capture in some of the last few shots before […]

Amanda and Marc

This wedding wasn’t without its hiccups – from the bride’s hair do-over to a missed exit on the highway – but it was a stupendous union at some gorgeous locations. Despite the chilly weather in October 2010, we braved an herb garden outside Ottawa for the photo shoot and captured some fantastic moments.
