Mom always did know what was important

Recently a friend’s mother passed away. He shared this story in Facebook, and it brought tears to my eyes. He and his dad had gone to the bank to clean out his moms safety deposit box. The went expecting to find some paperwork, maybe some documents, a birth certificate perhaps. As Scotiabank describes it, “Know the things you value most are in one safe, easily accessible place.” But what they found was so much more meaningful, and although unexpected, not […]

Your belonging, your history: Why it’s important to print your images | Whitby Family Photographer

Last week we celebrated my son’s 4th birthday. As you could imagine, in those four years I’ve snapped an uncountable number of photos of him. Sometimes these photos are capturing a quick moment on my phone, sometimes I haul out the “big camera”, and sometimes I even bring him into the studio to capture him and his personality at any particular moment in time. As you could also imagine, I have photos of my son, and our family, all over […]

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 […]

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 […]
