Can you say HOT!?  Look at the beauty of this family?!  Seriously – they should be in magazines! 

Ethan’s dad stood 6’7″…suprisingly not a basketball for this picture…but still – so darn sweet!

OH the excitement of today!  I met with Hillary and Eric who are getting married in May – for their engagement session today.  They wanted snow – and neither of us wanted cold…but we did it and it was a BLAST!!  You guys are such troopers going through the exercise of today for pictures!  (Boy do I need to work out lol!).  This first one is of Hillary’s wedding shoes…I LOVE THEM!!!  I will be all over them in May let me tell ya!

It felt so good getting back into engagement sesssions today!  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my babies – but when a wedding or engagement is thrown into the mix, I just get that excitement all over again!  Constantly looking for new things, and I mean lets face it…I don’t get pooped on! HA!

Hillary…you are stunning! You are going be an absolutely beautiful bride! I can’t wait!

I’m always looking to see how I can use different lighting…and the sun never disappoints me 🙂

Uh…can you say HOT HOT HOT!?

Mmmmm…you guys were so much fun today!  I honestly can’t wait for your wedding!  I hope you enjoy your sneak peak and I’ll be in touch in a couple weeks with the rest :- )  ENJOY!

This family came for baby Gabriel’s pictures after hearing about me through Wee Piggies and I’m so glad I had the chance to photograph this little ham!

3 months old and little Gabriel was just full of smiles!  …and noises! 😉

…and quite possibly the oldest baby that I got shots of him sleeping! Almost got a tricky pose too…but not quite as he woke up. But got this one…so cute!

Had to get this outfit in our session! Oh man…so cute! and then to add the wings…hmmm…not quite sure but I think I like it!

Remember sweet little baby Olivia from last summer?  I got to see her again today at the SWEET SWEET age of 6 months!  I can’t tell you how much i absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE when my babies come back! It’s amazing to see how much they have grown …and well – how chubba wubba their cheeks get! And lets face it, I have an OBSESSION with cheeks!

Check out those dimples!!! Oh man I love my job!

Oh the sweetness 🙂

“Hey mom…check out this baby!”…lol

I love playing with the lighting for different shots and this is just one reason why:

Okay…needless to say:  I LOVE THIS ONE!!!!

Olivia’s mom is Jamie and Jamie runs an accounting business out of her home.  Jamie is a great person and so very personable!  If you need an accountant (and tax time is coming SOON)…please visit Jamie at www.jamiemcnulty.com or email her at info@jamiemcnulty.com

It was a wonderful vacation that I surprised my husband with!  He gave me a beautiful engagement and I wanted to give him something somewhat the same in return and lets face it…you only turn 40 once!  So last Monday…my husband had finished a lengthy and tiring work week and asked to sleep in …soooooooooo at 9a.m. I put my cell phone full blast on my bedside and snuck out to do a non-existant “photoshoot”.  I then called my cell to ensure that I would wake him up.  He answered the phone tired and confused…”Hi baby it’s just me calling from the kitchen (LOL) …I know you wanted to sleep in…but turn on the light and look on the bedside table..bye”!  With that said, he turned on the light to find a card with a little gift.  The card said:  Good Morning lover, from me to you…a card to start, and walk you through…one through four with gifts between…now start the path to where we’ve been”…with that, he starts to open a little trail of small gifts…toothpaste, toothbrush, body wash, a lufa…shampoo…then onto a new trail that lead out of the bedroom and into the livingroom.  Card # 2…”All those things will keep you clean, if we get dirty is yet to be seen…the next little set will surprise you too, but I’m only thinking of my man…thats’ YOU!”  (okay so I’m not the best poet LOL)…and this little trail of gifts ended in the opening of immodium, gravol, pepto, bug spray… LOL! This trail led him to card # 3: So we’ve coated your stomach, and sprayed for insects, but keep going my love…oh how much better it gets!!!”  …this trail ended with gifts wrapped such as sun screen for your lips, sun tan lotion and after sun!  Oh the excitement that must have been flowing through his blood!  Then the last card that he was lead to sat on top of a suitcase!  ” Last but not least, a suitcase to pack.  7 amazing hot nights, until we come back!  so when do we leave?  You have phone calls to make! We leave in 2 hours for the flight we will take!  I’ve arranged time off work, your parents – they know! but Evan does not – to his school you should go!”  AND OFF WE WENT!!! Until we got to the airport – he had no idea where we were off too!  I love surprises!!!! 

Something about my husband and the abiltiy to catch rainbows!!  this was our view from our first day at lunch!  I just love the ocean!  And this just made it extra nice!  And…a wedding about to take place!

As most of you may know, my husband is an OPP officer…so when we saw the Mexican police he jumped at the chance to get as close to this gun as he could! check it out!!!

we took a nice long 2 hour walk down the beach of Mayan riviera..almost all the way to Palaya Del Carman!  Saw lots of neat things like wild lizards, huge waves, and birds that I swear looked like dinasours!!

Some of the BEST things about vacation is meeting great people!  This couple we hung out with most of the week – they are from New York.

OK seriously – HOW FUN IS THIS!!! Life-sized JENGA!!!!

The pool (well and 5 star) is what made me choose this resort.  This is only a small portion of this pool – and it’s awesome!  This is the Blue Bay Grand Elsmerado in Mayan Riviera.  It’s a 5 star resort (kids are allowed).  The food was good, the people were super nice, the rooms were very clean!  Would I go back again?  No…but not because of anything other than I want to visit the world and never return to the same place twice 🙂

We chose not to take our professional cameras on this trip this time..but instead took our little Olympus point and shoot – which is  an underwater camera too!  So we played around with the flash a little and just LOVE how this last picture turned out!!

Back from a beautiful 7 day well-needed rest in the beautiful Mayan Riviera and got to start back into my awesome passion of photography with this beautiful mom-to-be!  Due in March, we got her in for her session in perfect time.

Love is exactly what made this baby 🙂

Did I mention this is “Beautiful” mom-to-be?  Not only beautiful but fun and outgoing too!

Can’t you just feel the love for this baby in this picture?  We aren’t sure what we are having either (see how I did that…”we”…like it’s my baby too LOL!)

Enjoy your sneak peak Katie…I know you are excited and I hope you are as happy with the results as I am! Wait til you see the fishing picture…too fun!

WOOHOO!  I did it!!! I managed to keep it a suprise for my husband! No one peeped a word and he is totally shocked!!! Woke him up this morning with a little phone call that lead him to follow a path of gifts which lead to a suitecase…we are headed off to MEXICO BABY!  WOOHOO!!!  We will be gone for a week so I won’t be checking email or be near my phone until I return.  If you are inquiring into a newborn session (or any other for that matter) please call 289-244-6434 and leave a message.  I will be answering emails and phone calls upon our return. 

Should leave you with a few pictures from this past week!  Love my job!!

See you in a week!

Oh the sweetness I got to cuddle tonight~!  Meet baby Jack…sweet, sweet baby Jack (I love that name!).  He slept, ate, and slept some more – the perfect little model!

Could you not just cry at this picture!?  I mean how CUTE IS THIS! Lol…sweet big sister snuggling sweet little brother…everybody now – “aaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwwww”

I think I’m too in love with the teddy bear theme…lol!

And last but not least to tide you over until your gallery is ready – how cute!  Jack came in at 7 days which is the PERFECT age!  Anything under 10 days and the babies usually just curl right up and sleep!  Jack was the perfect example of young babies who do just that!

I love my job I love my job I love my job I love my job I love…okay you get the picture! But seriously!  I HAVE THE BEST JOB EVER! I get to meet new people, touch the lives of new families, I get to laugh, cry, jump up and down with excitement and I always get new challenges which just make me love this “job” even more!  Meet the beautiful Lisa and Lori.  Sisters who are both expecting very soon!  Lisa is an ultra sound tech who discovered she is expecting twins (imagine being the one to personally see that you have TWO babies inside!) Lisa also knows the sex of Lori’s baby but is keeping it a suprise which was also very cute to listen too…Lori would say “if I have a girl…” or “if it’s a boy…” and I couldn’t read Lisa at all to see which one it was!  (Have I mentioned – I LOVE MY JOB!)~

I had been going crazy weeks and days before this sesion thinking of how I could make these two into book ends (lol  that sounds so funny!)…and I love the show “Friends” so we used a few seasons to make them into ‘book ends’ 🙂 or I guess…movie ends? Lol!

Lori and Lisa, you were both such fun people to work with.  I had a blast and am so excited to meet your new babies! You have a wonderful sister (who started the ball rolling on this session by getting newborn gift certificates!) that I think I would like to adopt her as my sister to!  Thanks again for letting me capture this time!  Enjoy your sneak peak…there are so many more to come!!!!
