Turning 8....

I had the wonderful pleasure of attending Tyson's 8th birthday party yesterday evening... Hamburgers, chips, cake and water balloons, I wouldn't miss that for the world! Not to mention an 8 year old after a day of too much excitement and sugar! I really forgot how exciting birthdays can be for a young child. He had a permanent smile on his face all evening....well until the very end when he got a tad bit upset about there being no more water balloons left.... Tyson woke up at 5:00a.m. and was ready to begin the celebrations! This morning Julie told me that he said, he "just could not believe how fast his birthday went by". He's far too funny... I just love him!!!

Here are some of the images... Of course, the dogs were invited along as well!!

The Lloyd Family.....

A few weeks ago, Lindsay asked me to come to her family's home while she was home from Alberta, for a lifestyle session. We did this session in the backyard and they included the dogs! I love when the dogs are in the family shots, it only makes sense -- They're part of the family too!! What a great family they are, everyone was so kind and umm... I swear they were all models!

Thanks so much for having me come and do your family lifestyle session, I had such a great time!

Mike and Laura Say I Do.....

I met Mike and Laura about a year and a half ago when they booked their wedding. At that time it seemed so far away, well it came very quickly! I've had the pleasure of spending time with the two of them between now and then, and I am just so honoured to consider them friends. They are a wonderful couple and I just had such a great day with them and their families. I love when I arrive at a family home on the wedding day and everyone is just so welcoming!~ I am so luck to have such wonderful clients.

The whole day was a success, despite the weather. We continued as planned and just embraced the very handy black umbrellas they had purchased in the event it rained.... Turned out to be a great investment on their part!

Congratulations you two, I am so happy to have been able to spend the day with you and your wonderful families!!! Thank you

Summer cold?!!! Paahhhllleezzzzz

Well my friends, I was struck down with a crazy summer cold and have been out of commission for a few days. I blame this on global warming.... Remember to recycle, walk to work and turn down your AC! That's my little David Suzuki tid bit for the day...

I am starting to feel better today and am getting back to work. I've got a number of images to post from some lifestyle sessions and of course the beautiful wedding of Mike and Laura that took place on Saturday. Yes, it rained, but we all made the best of it and the day turned out perfectly!... More on that later!

I got my new sample Album that I am offering as one of my album choices. This goes back to when I was in Las Vegas for the conference and had to find the absolute best album company for my clients! I found it!!! Here are some images of this wonderful new product!!! It has a bunch of different cover choices, comes in a leather breifcase and is handmade in Italy.... For real. It's stunning!!!!

Christine and Kent E-Session

Kent met Christine. Christine met Kent. They fell in love moved in together, got engaged in Hong Kong on the way to Australia and will fly to Mexico to get married. Then they lived happliy ever after travelling all of the globe.

We had been waiting to do this shoot for a few weeks now as the weather had not been on our side. Finally with the rain clouds looming, we went ahead anyway. The weather held out until after we finished and were sitting on a roof top patio in Guelph. It really could not have been a better evening! We had such a great time with you two! Christine and Kent, you're both wonderful and I can't wait for your wedding in December!

And now just push play for the slideshow....
