Tracey + Paul's Awesome Mini Putt Engagement Session

I first met Tracey when she and my sister were in college together over a decade ago, so in a way I feel like I've watched her "grow up". The two of them had their first "real" jobs together, and I even saw Tracey and Paul buy their first house (I wasn't spying - it was on Property Virgins!). So not only are they are great (and very photogenic) couple, but it's really exciting for me to be a part of them taking this next step in their lives together. They also both have a fantastic visual sense, so I've really enjoyed discussing the details of their upcoming golf-themed wedding :) To tie in with this, we headed to a mini putt for their engagement shoot..

 they even brought a blue plaid blanket to tie in with the wedding colours and the golf pants the guys will be wearing.. it really was perfect to have since we were doing these shots in between hail storms and pouring rain last weekend! (though you'd never know it from how cozy they look..)
Tracey & Paul - thank you for braving the elements with us! You guys were adorable and we can't wait to photograph your wedding in November!

Meghan & Frank - Engagement session in Blossomy High Park

Meghan and Frank are awesome. They felt like old friends after we'd known them for about 5 minutes, and we've had lots of fun discussing their plans for their wedding in September (with a Steampunk theme!) We met up with them at High Park to do engagement photos this weekend, and they were so fun - I've maybe never met a couple more willing to say "yes!" to every crazy idea I threw out there ;) What was also fantastic about photographing them was that they had a great sense of fun and silliness, and are obviously crazy about each other :)

 I love Meg's "angelic" face in this shot below..

The decision to bring along their puppy Sidney was a great one - he was so well behaved and loved being photographed!
Meg & Frank - thanks for being such fun to work with - we can't wait for your wedding in September!

Beautiful Newborn Oliver

Last weekend we had the pleasure of meeting Baby Oliver, and of photographing him with his Mommy & Daddy. Rasha & Wil are two of the nicest, most relaxed and easy-going people I've ever met - they were such a joy to spend time with :) We had many things in common, from our taste in headboards and art (we even have a couple of paintings from the same artist!) to our agreement that Baby Oliver is pretty much perfect :) See for yourself..

this next image is one of my favourite shots EVER - love it!
I also really enjoyed all the cool owl details in his sweet nursery..
Baby Oliver is happiest when he's being snuggled :)

Love those tiny toes :)
Rasha & Wil - thank you so much for sharing your home and your family with us! We had such a great time snuggling with Oliver and playing with the cats, and can't wait to show you the rest of your adorable images :)
