Stephen and Rebecca: An Engagement Session

Just when I think nothing could be more fun than chasing toddlers around with my camera, or relishing in the peace of photographing a sleeping newborn, I discover a new joy. This past weekend it was pre-wedding bliss! I had the best time with Stephen and Rebecca, who just recently got engaged. Despite being quite chilly and even a bit nervous around the camera at first, they were great sports and proved to be naturals in front of the camera! If I could, I would follow them around with my camera all the time!

Here are a few of my favorites from the session:

The beautiful couple with their little pooch, Oliver.

A brief moment of blue sky before the clouds took over.

They were naturals in front of the camera and seemed to forget I was even there.

Do you believe they were nervous about the session?

Sitting on the steps outside the music house where Stephen teaches.

They chose this spot, thinking the budding tree behind them was a nice backdrop. Well done!

Definitely naturals, and definitely in love!

Rebecca and Stephen, you guys were a blast. Hope you've thawed out by now Rebecca. Thanks again for a great time!

Evan, Emma, and Johnny

Meet Evan and Emma. They are two of the sweetest kids you will ever meet. The other day their dad asked me if I could photograph them as a surprise gift for their mom for Mother's Day. Knowing what a wonderful mother (and friend!) Stephanie is and appreciating the work that Jason was putting in ahead of time, I was more than happy to help! Unfortunately, mom found out about the surprise, but it was still a great time being with these awesome kids (and their sweet cousin, Johnny!). And hopefully Stephanie will still love her Mother's Day gift, even if it's no longer a surprise!

A few of my favorites from our session:

Evan, one of the nicest little boys I know.

Evan's little sister, Emma. I adore her! She calls me Lebo. Just Lebo. I love it!

Mom picked a fabulous shirt for him- love the contrast it creates.

Doesn't she have the sweetest smile and the prettiest curls?

A more serious looking Emma.

What beautiful eyes.

And here's cousin Johnny! He was very shy and not at all into getting his photo taken, but after an hour of lurking and waiting, I finally made eye contact! Yahoo! So worth the wait. What a sweetie!

Here's hoping Stephanie's Mother's Day is as beautiful as her children are.

The Bala Family

Last weekend I had the chance to photograph the Bala family again. I love these boys! Older brother, Josh is such a sweet kid. He's a bit more reserved and very friendly and helpful. He knows more about hockey than most adults, which cracks me up. He's so much like his dad! Little brother, Jack is a little firecracker. This kid has such personality and had me running all over the place! He is joy personified and I love watching him go go go! Their parents are wonderful people, so it's easy to see where the boys get their great character.

Here are a few of my favorites from our time together:

Josh was telling me all about his favorite hockey players.

Jack finally slowed for a moment to let me shoot.

The brothers check out the fish in the pond.

Mom, Katie, with Josh (while Jack runs off elsewhere!).

Playing hide and seek with me.

I love this family!

Thanks Chris and Katie for another great session. Your boys are awesome!

Meeting Quinn

I have a dear friend, Donna who has a sister, Dionne. Both of these wonderful sisters gave birth within months of each other, Dionne for the first time with her son, Quinn, and Donna for the fourth time with her daughter, Lucia. With the birth of Lucia, Dionne came to visit with her husband, Mike, and their little man. I had the pleasure of photographing this lovely family, and was instantly smitten with little Quinn. What a beautiful family and what a beautiful boy.

Here are a few of my favorites from the session:

I was instantly captivated by Quinn's dark blue-gray eyes and his peacefulness.

I love this shot. You can see all of Dionne's love for Quinn right there in her beautiful eyes.

Quinn and his mom, and the full family portrait. Truly, a wonderful family.

I love this shot too. The focus clearly on his tootsies, but you can catch the hint of his smile and her love in the background.

What a delightful little boy!

So great to meet you, Dionne, Mike, and Quinn. Loved photographing you, little Quinn. Tell your little cousin, Lucia, that she is next!

Ellie Girl

A few weeks ago, I had the sweet pleasure of spending a morning with my little friend Ellie. What a treat! I shot some photos of Ellie when she was just three months old and it was so fun to see how much she'd changed and grown. Still, it was especially wonderful to see that one thing hadn't changed- her big beautiful blue eyes.

Here are some of my favorites:

Ellie looking especially lady like in her pretty blue dress.

The big girl can now stand up in her crib!

I loved that she now had some teeth to compliment her pretty blue eyes and beautiful smile!

Here, with mom and dad, and with a few of her favorite play things.

Big, beautiful, blue eyes... truly captivating.

Thank you Ellie girl, for a wonderful morning. Let's do it again soon!
