Although it may raise an eyebrow or two, the preparation that goes into Prom CAN be akin to bridal preparations: there's the selection of a more-than-ordinary dress, plans for special hair and makeup, shoes, accessories, florals, a fast-paced, whirlwind day ... nerves -- on both the parts of the graduates AND the parents. Prom sessions - even mini ones like these - can slow down the day and allow teen, mom, dad, siblings and even boyfriend or prom date to carve and protect some time for themselves before the swarming of friends and the big celebration - and provide them a keepsake in more ways than one. To Callie, Genevieve, Teghan and your families: thank-you for allowing me to give you that space and for trusting me to provide you with mementos of your day. Do. Great. Things. xox
It's been 3 years since I had the honour of photographing Tara and David as they exchanged their wedding vows. In those 3 years they added to their family, bought a home and are easing into a life of proud parentdom. Tara knew she wanted bright, cheerful images of her family and her own backyard did not disappoint. Thwarted by poor weather a few times, we finally made it to the mark with literally a day of perfect weather and light. Thank-you, David and Tara for entrusting me once again to photograph key moments in your life. xox
Danielle + Milo were up to having some fun, taking a break from everyday life and responsibilities. Ok, truth be told, Milo was not as enthused about the idea as Danielle (as is typically the case with most partners), but because Danielle loved the idea of me photographing them, Milo was supportive. That, right there, Peeps, is love and friendship. And it shows in their images. Such a great connection in these two. Thank-you, Danielle + Milo for sharing some of your personal time and spirit with me. xox
Carla and Joshua delayed their engagement session until this Spring, hoping to catch the beauty of blossoms and bright colour in the Nation's Capital. The timing couldn't have been more perfect: Carla and Joshua were rewarded with an array of blossoms at every turn, vibrant greenery and fair-weather conditions. Enjoy these peaks for now while we prepare for their July 30 wedding this summer! xox
