So, this weekend we celebrated Justin & Sari’s nuptials. If any of you were outside Saturday, you know that the sun was shining but the wind carried some icy chills with it. Nonetheless, my bride was determined to have beautiful portraits even if it meant a little bit of chattering teeth here and there. As you’ll see they were beautiful, stylish and cheerful! This always makes my days happy ones!
So, here is a sneak peek into Justin & Sari’s wedded bliss…
To this family their family portraits is a ritual that we’ve come to love and expect. There’s no doubt next year we’ll be planning the location, the colors the theme and all that fun stuff in order to keep their session different from the previous. Last year, I photographed this family at the carnival. This year we decided on a beach session. I think many of us underestimate the beauty that’s in our backyard. This year I’m hoping to get outside a little more while the weather is nice. The kids love it, and chasing them is what I do best, even if that means jumping in the water with them 🙂
When I edited this session. I seriously was smiling through the whole process. How could you not!? These kids crack me up. We had a blast and I wondered sometimes how well mom and dad were hiding their terror lol… It didn’t go as planned (nice dry outfits), but hey we made memories they’ll love one day.
Here’s to another year of documenting the Vicaire family!

So, a while back I slowed down quite a bit on booking sessions that weren’t wedding, newborn or maternity related. I stayed away from family and children so that I could concentrate on these areas. But what I realized recently is that having to entertain and trick kids into liking me was part of the excitement! Oh my how fun it is to pull scrunchie noses, giggles and smiles out of little ones. They have no care in the world what tomorrow brings and what yesterday was like. And when I’m photographing them, I’m right there…In the moment. Sure the parents probably think I’m some kind of whacked out overgrown child, but that’s part of the fun. And you know what I need more of that in my life. So, bring it on!
Here is a recent session I did of 2 beautiful boys, who love their mother without a doubt and she adores them just as much. I love when a child is free loving and carefree like the way they were meant to be…
And one of my favorite images is the last one, because I’m in it. I can see my shadow behind him and he’s reaching up towards me…that’s when I know, I’ve done my best to make them feel at home 🙂

Well, this day turned out to be a blessing. We had bad weather before and after the big day. After what seemed like weeks of rain and cold we got one beautiful sunny summer day! This couple was a pleasure to spend the day with. As you’ll see my job wasn’t very hard either…beautiful people in a beautiful setting.
As you’ll see we did a “first look”, and these are always fun when set-up right. Wait till you see the sequence 🙂
Thank you for letting me be part of this day Vanessa & Kristof!
Here’s a preview!

I woke up Saturday morning excited to see the sun was shining. As some of you know, summer has somewhat not really shown up yet. So, when the forecast was calling for the warmest day we’ve had yet, I was thrilled despite knowing those boys would probably be hoping for some clouds haha…So, here is the beautiful and kind couple and their sweet families!

Oh, how I love engagement sessions. They’re usually a way to get to know my clients and hang out in a relaxed setting. These two made the session such a fun event. Which usually means a great atmosphere come wedding day. So, here is a couple we’ll be seeing again this fall when they tie the knot!

So, this is what I was up to today! Spent my morning with the beautiful and kind Dominique Doucette to create some images for her! Loved every minute and she made it super easy. I know exactly why she’s Miss Canada, she’s the girl next door that you can’t help but wish she was your neighbor! Here’s a sneak peek!
