Lyndsay & Jordan

September 26, 2015

A beautiful day with a beautiful couple.  Lyndsay’s day began with a secret.  She opened a gift sent from Jordan only to be surprised and amazed.  Jordan had created a beautiful wall art piece using photos from his proposal.  Only thing is that Lyndsay never knew that there was someone photographing them at the time.  I met Jordan and Lyndsay following their engagement almost a year ago and it wasn’t until the morning of her wedding that she found out that he secretly had someone lurking in the bushes at a location that sounds like it was a challenge to get Lyndsay to.  All to give her a beautiful surprise on the morning of their special day.  All I can say is, ‘Wow Jordan – what a wonderful gesture’ and a fun story to go along with the images.
Many congratulations to both of you as you journey life together.
Many thanks to JoEllen for spending the day with me to 2nd shoot with me._MG_8647 _MG_8748

Last Saturday was a beautiful day for a wedding and Jesilyn looked fantastic.  I loved watching the emotion in Jason’s face as she approached him at the ceremony.  The setting of Bird’s Hill park was beautiful for an intimate ceremony.  Congratulations to both of you as you journey on your paths together._MG_7579

Blaire015 57Just wanted to say thank you to everyone who came out to the Shamrock Outdoor Market for a Victorian Themed Session and also to the ones from Killarney who drove in and took advantage of my offer for them to come to the city for the same great promo in the Enchanted Forest. Many thanks and together we were able to help the Shamrock in their fundraising efforts for a Digital Projector so that the Drive Inn can live on.

Wow, I’ve had so many wonderful children come for an Enchanted Forest Portrait Session so far this year that I just wanted to share one each from most of the sessions that I’ve photographed this year.

Congratulations to Kally-Anna and Mitchell on ‘tying the knot’, literally 🙂  You two were such a pleasure to work with and your love and devotion to each other is evident.  Your family and friends that surrounded you on your day are fortunate to have you in their lives.  One of my favourite points in the day was watching how your GiGi beamed with pride when he looked at you.  You took the ups and downs of the day in stride and enjoyed being with each other.  I wish you many years of happiness together.  Thanks to Carly Koop for second shooting for me and helping throughout the day – so great to work with you.DSC_3990 DSC_4036 _MG_0031 _MG_0074 _MG_0093 _MG_0174 _MG_0226 DSC_0106 _MG_0400 _MG_0413 _MG_0506 _MG_0519 _MG_0541 _MG_0586 _MG_0759 _MG_0838 _MG_0874 _MG_0933 _MG_0940 _MG_1020 _MG_1051 _MG_1055 _MG_1076 DSC_4306 _MG_1141 _MG_1168 _MG_1217 _MG_1299 _MG_1339 _MG_1449

What a wonderful couple.

Elfriede looked stunning in her elegant gown.  The day was relaxed and filled with family – those are the best kind of days.  What a legacy these two have already left with many more memories and times to share to come.

When the minister remarked that Elfriedea and John were like two teenagers in love I simply had to agree.  My favourite part of the day was watching John look at his bride because whenever he did his smile because automatic and obviously full of joy.
Blessings to you both as you embark on this new adventure._MG_8796

Twenty Five years is an accomplishment.  Twenty five years and willing to do it all over again is a testament to true love.  Standing and renewing their vows Nazareth and Efrem continued to follow the pledge they made to each other many years ago.  Hearing Efraim stand up and say to the crowd that he would do it all over again through the good times and the bad spoke to me of true devotion.  Family and friends that travelled from all over the world to celebrate with them.  A highlight for me was listening to their daughter speak of good and kind and intelligent parents who taught and encouraged her to become the young woman that she is today.  Many blessings to you and your family.  I wish you another 25 years (and more) together.

Meet Maks.  Talk about cute squish able goodness all rolled up in a little package.  It’s always a privilege to photograph a new one so soon after his/her introduction to this world._MG_5661 (1)

Anticipation.

Undoubtedly one of the true wonders in this life, is a mother giving life.  A mother carries a child in her womb for a short time but in her heart for a lifetime.  Watching a new father gently hold his newborn child is also a wonder…but the newborn post will have to wait till later this week.
