The Kaak Family | Whitby Family Photographer

This session holds a special place in my heart because it features some of my own family: my sister, brother-in-law, and my adorable little niece. We shot this session “back home” in Dorchester, Ontario over thanksgiving weekend. We went to a little spot not far from our mom’s house, but I really had no idea what to expect of the location until we arrived. Well, I couldn’t have asked for a better location, nor better weather, and the perfect golden hour, which complimented my niece’s fiery red hair so perfectly!!

I was so happy to be able to capture these special moments for my sister and her family, and I can’t wait to show off the amazing framed wall art we have planned and are putting together! It would have been a shame to take these photos and them leave them sitting on a usb somewhere, there was absolutely no way I could allow for that! So stay tuned to see the finished product!

In the meantime, enjoy these beautiful photos!

Kerry | Whitby Maternity Photography

I was so excited to capture these maternity photos for Kerry and her family. Maternity photos are one of my favourite to capture! It’s such a special time, and not one that typically happens too often in each of our lives, so it’s great to document his time and show how beautiful it is!

I first met Kerry during the holiday season last year. She brought her first son, Declan, into the studio for some holiday photos. He was just a little guy then, around 7 months or so if I remember correctly, so it was a lot of fun seeing him almost a year later, and seeing how much he has grown and what a fun little guy he has become! Kerry also brought this gorgeous custom made maternity gown, which photographed beautifully! She also brought a casual outfit, for some more laid back photos with her family as well. We met at Heber Downs, in Whitby, which gave us a great variety of places to shoot. Definitely one of my favourite spots!

Here are just a few of my favourites from the session!

The Rohrer / Silver Family | Whitby Family Photography

I love extended family photography sessions! I think it’s so important to capture those moments that include grandma and grandpa. Those moments that are often forgotten or we simply don’t take the time to capture. We owe it to our kids to capture these moments for them! The Rohrer family had originally contacted me for a family photography session with just the 4 of them, and as luck (and our questionable summer) would have it, we had to reschedule due to rain. It worked out beautifully though because in the time before the reschedule, they decided to ask if both sets of grandparents could come along. Of course!

We got up bright and early one Sunday morning in July, before the sun was high and making us all sweat, and headed to Cullen Gardens, in Whitby, to capture their family. We did a mix of posed formal portraits, and lots of fun and active photos with the two young boys. Jumping, running, spinning, and literally running circles around mom and dad, these boys were game for anything I asked! It was a blast! Here are just a few of my favourites from the session!

The Divinec Family | Oshawa Family Photography

The Divinec family came to see me last year in my Whitby studio, when Chloe was just a tiny newborn. It’s been about 9 months since then and as babies do, she has changed so much in such a short time! They decided it was time for some updated family photos! We chose a little park in Oshawa, off the beaten path, and a beautiful summer’s day made for gorgeous photos!

I love it so much when my newborn clients come back to me for some family photos. It’s such a joy to see the babies grow, and it’s always nice to see mom and dad and chat a bit about how they are doing now that they are old pros at this new parents thing!

Baby Chloe | Whitby Newborn Photography

Baby Chloe was the sweetest little thing. She came to my Whitby studio at a month old, a little older than I would typically photograph a newborn, but she was a dream and slept nearly the entire time! It was also great to meet her mom and dad, I felt like I had known them a long time, not just a few hours! Mom even brought in her wedding dress so we could use it to photograph little Chloe with, and I think the result is very special! Here are a few favourites from the session.
