Emily, Taylor, & Lawson in Old Toronto

Sometimes you just meet people that inspire you so much. For me that is Emily and Taylor. Not only are these two so cute and in love and wonderful to each other, but they are also both young artists pursuing education and work after moving from their home community in Bruce Penninsula to Toronto. As someone else who moved from a small place to a big place, and listening to their stories of their early days in Toronto, it really struck a chord with me.

The excitement of the city, the new vibes and places to get used to, the cool neighbourhoods… and their first neighbourhood when they moved there is one of the coolest, St. Lawrence! The first few photos in this post might seem random but they were taken in front of their first apartment in the city, which is a super important place to them. So of course we had to take photos here! They’ve had to move since precious lil Lawson came into the world, but you can tell just listening to their stories what their early times in Toronto meant to them. And so it was an honour to photograph them, hear those stories, and help in creating memories for the future! Thanks so much to these two. <3


Family in the Beaches

I’m so excited to share this cute laid back beach family session! I was concerned the day of because I’d been expecting clouds (good), even some snow (I can do it!) but direct sunlight in the middle of the afternoon on the ONLY sunny day that week? I was a bit worried, truth be told! However, luckily these guys are so chill and it all worked out. It’s also fun trying to wrangle two dogs to sit still for some photos! Either way, it’s always a ton of fun hanging out with families and giving them a good experience and photos! I am definitely not a dig whisperer. It’s definitely hard to remember to get family photos consistently, especially if you feel nervous in front of the camera or you’re very busy. But time flies!! Before you know it everyone will be grown up. (I mean, you can definitely still take photos with everyone grown up!). But there’s nothing to fear! In the end you’ll finally have some of those fam photos you’ve been wanting to have and share! I can’t wait to send them their 10 free prints too, because I firmly believe in giving the gift of a physical product. It is SO important to actually use, hang, and share your photos! <3 Anyway, enjoy these cuties!
