A Snowy Day

A few shots from the very snowy day we had here in Toronto this week. All of the images were shot with the Lenbaby G3.

Three great shots. Very striking winners.

Contest update!

There are just over 48-hours left in the contest (it closes at 5 pm on Thursday), so I thought I’d give a quick update.

Image #2 is in the lead, with 20% of the votes, followed very closely by Image #9 with 19%, Image #1 has 16% and these three images have been battling it out for first place.

In fourth place, not very far behind, is Image #7 with 15%, next is Image #4 (11%), Image #5 (10%), Image #8 (5%), Image #3 (3%) and then Image #6 (2%).

It’s not too late to totally turn this around! If you haven’t emailed everyone you know, to vote for you, there is still time.

I can’t wait to see how it all ends. Good luck to everyone!

Maeve, Rhys & Kylie: Family & Newborn Photography, Toronto, Ontario

This is a sneak peek of a session from yesterday…boy, was it hard to choose only a few favorites…as you can see by how many I posted!

(If you are looking for the contest, scroll down or just click here.)

This was a newborn session with the older siblings included. What beautiful fun loving children!

Maeve was such a sweet little girl! Reminded me of my daughter (when she was baby), and she is such a beautiful little baby:


Rhys was such a character! Really reminded me of my son. And look at those amazing green eyes!

Kylie was a total sweetheart, she is so beautiful, she could grow up to be a model, and such gorgeous blue eyes!

Another one of Rhys, with his sister peeking around in the background:

Kylie and Rhys were having a grand time goofing around on the sofa as I took photographs of them. I thought this image really caught their fun loving nature (though there is one below that captures it even more!):

Maeve, with big sister Kylie and big brother Rhys, in the background:

I love this one! They are actually hanging upside down, off the back of a coffee table, which is why they look a little strange, but I just love the happiness in this shot! I had such a great time with both of them!

Thank you Christa, your children are beautiful and fun! I had such a great afternoon with all of you. We started the session with a hand shake at the door, and ended it with a hug at the door. I love what I do! 🙂
