That’s it! The last wedding of the season … I thought for sure with all the rain weddings we had this year that we were in for a treat weather wise for Steph and Tim’s wedding but what a surprise we got… It was a super mild day for November and we were able to able to shoot comfortably outside… A great way to end the season. It was a beautiful day, and I got to witness a day full of great family and friend connections. Steph and Tim carried on a great tradition of being the third generation of their family to marry in the St. John’s Lutheran Church on Hyw 3 … Pretty special I think.
Along with beautiful connections, comes lots of moments of laughter. This day was definitely FULL of it, from getting ready in the morning, in the church (Tim with his wisecracks), during the portraits and as you will see, throughout the evening during the great speeches and the dancing.
Stephanie and Tim, thanks so much for asking me to be a part of your day… It was a beautiful and it was a pleasure to witness and capture all the lovely connections you have with your family and friends. You are well loved that’s for sure and I wish you all the best!
PS. I need more donkeys at all my weddings lol

This past summer Sherry and Ian were married in Jamaica
On Thanksgiving weekend they gathered to celebrate with their family and friends here in Niagara
It was an overcast day and it didn’t rain so they were able to gather on the porch for drinks,
yummy appetizers and then some more yumminess inside the carriage house for a luncheon meal

PS. If you’ve never been to Vineland Estates, the wine, food and scenery are amazing!
They walk to their part…
They walk for the loved ones in their heart
It was year 19 for the Country Walk this year
I’ve been photographing this event for about 5 years and it’s always great to see how many people participate in this event
and how many of the same women and families come back every year in memory of their loved ones or in support of their loved ones.
This year, $12, 000 was raised at the walk for the Canadian Cancer Society
And another $5,000 was raised for the Ramona Pizzo + Bonnie Jackson Scholarship Award in May at the Table Toppers event.
The recipients of these funds raised were students from town here, who were cancer survivors or their parents had cancer.
Two were from Lakeshore Catholic and two from Port Colborne High School, money went towards their education, apprenticeship or workforce.
To all that participated in both events – You are beautiful people

Sabrina + Andy – 2013.10.28
A small service with just family members…
A little backyard party with all their friends and family to end the night…
A no non sense wedding day is all she wanted …
And a no non sense wedding is what she got…
It was a perfect day for Sabrina and Andy…
The weather, the service Andy’s dad took part in, the delicious food, the details and of course…
The presence of all their close friends and family …

I recently met Teresa and little Sienna here at the Farmer’s Market a couple of weeks ago when I was hanging out with my good friend Nadia.
Teresa is Nadia’s aunt and she and her family were visiting from Switzerland.
My photography came up in conversation and well… I managed to squeeze them in for a session the following week lol.
I’m glad it worked out and I was able to get some pics of their sweet family.
We also did a few with Teresa’s mom in her backyard…
I absolutely love the shots in the field we used and in Noni’s garden setting.
The beautiful colours and tones in these images go hand-in-hand with their beautiful family.
I just designed an album for them and I can’t wait to see it printed – It’s going to be REALLY nice …
This is a little family session I shot on a warm summer day back in August at the St. John’s Conservation Area.
St. John’s is actually one of my favourite spots to go to when I need to get away from it all.
If you end up on a night where no one is there around dinner it’s actually quite magical.
I am very fond of spending time with my duck friends there lol.
So whether it’s for a time out in nature or a family session I really like this place.
I had a nice time with this lovely family here…
This boy was the sweetest.
A little inpromptu photo shoot after Thanksgiving meal on Sunday …
Wild and free with the Crumb boys ❤
Some new pics of Cadence and Peyton ❤
I’ve been photographing for the Fletcher’s since Peyton was a newborn.
Miss Peyton is one tough little cookie.
At the ripe age of 6 she has already given cancer a good butt whooping.
Peyton was diagnosed in January and cancer free in May…
I am so glad she is now back to her old self.
I look forward to many more beautiful shoots with Peyton and her lovely side kick Cadence as they grow.
So right now, here is Pey Pey (as Cadence would call her) in her pixie hair cut stage, cancer free with her younger sis Cadence being all cute at the Port Colborne Museum ❤
