Amanda and I had fun discussing all the location options we’d love to use for her engagement session,  Apart from having a beautiful landscape, to me, it’s so important to have my clients connect to their chosen spot.  Be it their first home, first date, somewhere there is an emotion connection to, including their family pets, or using meaning props.  That raises the stakes for me, and forces me to be more creative, as it’s not always tried and true location.  And if it is, then I want to look at it with a new set of eyes, so each session I photograph has a personal feel to it.  As soon as Amanda hinted that her backyard might be an option as they are in love with their home, I told her I was sold on the idea.  So we opted for their cozy, warm, beautiful backyard.  Yes you heard me, these photos below are all done in this amazing couples’ home. Not even having seen the space… if her heart was in, then so was I !!

Lucky for me… I got this magical land and magical light to work with (ya me !!!) and bonus… this magical couple.  See for yourselves

Let me introduce you to two of the cutest little models I had the pleasure to photograph.  Isabella and Rocco are too delicious for words, it was an amazing morning spent with them and their mama, the effortlessly beautiful Ashley.  I am so honoured I got to laugh and play with these munchkins, and photograph the beginning of a beautiful friendship, the bond between brother and sister… enjoy 😉

I can happily say that the beautiful Lima family is no stranger to my camera.  I have been photographing this love story for 5 years now.  Gen, Carlos and Arielle (yes, she is a mermaid) are soon welcoming another little princess into their hearts.  I am so excited !!  These are the latest collections of photos I took, and am pretty pleased with them :).  Gen’s love of animals was a driving force behind the vision, and I had worked at Sunset farm before and knew it would be perfect for this shoot.  This gorgeous unicorn (she’s just missing her horn ;)) is Holy and was just a dream to work with. We were in heaven

Tara and Mark have a magnetic energy, and photographing them was effortless.  Usually for all my couples, the engagement session is their first real shoot together, so it’s normal to be nervous.  But they killed it right off the bat, lucky for me ;).  The laughing and the fun basically started right away, and I am so grateful.

I also love when couples bring their pets to our engagement shoots.  Being that it’s usually their first official family portrait, I love personalizing this with your furry family members.

We are photographing this couple’s wedding next weekend, wishing them a stress-free, last week single… see you next week 😉
