true love

The problem with having a photographer for a girlfriend is that I make you do stupid things and then take your picture... sometimes with a wide angle lens too, which is always less than flattering. See examples below.

I actually think that this picture of Dave eating soup is the most hilarious and awesome picture I've ever taken.

But God love him, he puts up with me. And once in awhile, I do take a serious one which shows off just how perfectly handsome and adorable he really is. xoxo.

Okay, I'll admit it - I have a crush on Cameron. But how could I not? His big blue eyes and easy smile are melt-your-heart adorable. Add to that his sweet little personality and well... no girl stands a chance. As you scroll through these images, be prepared for extreme cuteness. My favourite is Cameron sitting on the grass with a scrunched up nose - as you'll see, he didn't quite know what to make of it!

Coincidentally, I'll be seeing Cameron next week at a wedding we've both been invited to - I can't wait to see him in his sweater-vest, I'm sure he'll be stealing hearts left, right and center. Thanks to his mommy Kate for inviting me over to take pictures of Cameron-who-just-learned-how-to-sit (sooo sweet!), it was an absolute pleasure. :)

spencer's buddies

Yesterday I showed you pictures of Spencer celebrating his one year. Today I'm featuring a few of Spencer's little friends. One of the best things about birthday parties is all the overwhelmingly adorable children. I don't know how parents do it, surrounded by so much cuteness all the time. But somehow, they manage to cope. :)

spencer turns one

Spencer is beyond adorable. His parents are awesome. Spencer just turned one.

This is part one of his birthday party post. Today features the handsome little birthday boy; tomorrow will feature a few shots of his friends.

Thanks so much Lindsay and Mike for inviting me back to your beautiful home to share this special day - I had so much fun! :)

You should be able to click on this to make it bigger. Yep, it's a balloon floating away - that's what happens with helium balloons and 4 year olds! Love it!

jen + alex {in love}

I don't think you could ever tell from these images how reluctant one-half of Jen and Alex was to get his picture taken... I won't name any names, but it's because he loves Jen so much that he agreed - and I sure am glad he did because we ended up with some pretty amazing shots! :)

And here's a first for me - I like all the pictures from their session better in colour than in black and white! I KNOW! I think it's because we had such spectacular light. It poured all day and then later in the afternoon the sun started peaking through and the world was bathed in this beautiful light that made all the colours look super-saturated. Gorgeous.

Alex and Jen, I hope you like your photos. I'm super pumped for your wedding in... oh my gosh... 22 days! It's going to be so much fun!

dal grads 2010

Emily and Nicole are sweet, beautiful and up for anything. That's pretty much a photographer's dream so of course I immediately said "yes!" when they asked me to shoot some grad photos for them.

Of course, we took a couple of more traditional-looking head shots. But the ones I love the most from this session are the silly ones around campus. I especially love the one of them jumping - so fun and it's kinda amazing how much air they got!

Thanks for a fun morning girls. And congratulations! :)
