The day after Torie & Mike's wedding, I spent the afternoon in Beacon Hill Park with some of our best friends. It was a bit of a combination of a family session and an engagement session because after seven years and a cutie-pie daugther together, this happy couple is finally tying the knot - and I can't wait until their wedding next September!

On with the images! Again, liking the black & white better, but posting some colour too because I know that a lot of you like colour as much as I like b&w.

Here's the whole family...

Look at the huge eyes on her! And I've decided that if my Worm is Mister Serious, then she wins the prize for Little Miss Serious.

I love this tree:


And saving my favorites for last... a little collage of play-time on the swings:

iheartfaces - Pink Week

In honor of Breast Cancer awareness month this October, iheartfaces is having a Pink Week contest. The simple rule is that each entry must contain a face, and the color pink.

I like this image better in b&w (it seems more dramatic that way), but I love the little pink "smoking jacket" and socks that this cutie-pie is sporting. She had shoes on when our session started, but she had yanked them off (to chew on) by the time we were done. She's so stinkin' adorable!

Olympic Flashback

Tadpole and I spent some time on YouTube this afternoon, watching videos from February's Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
There are still so many moments that give me goosebumps and make me more proud than ever to be a Canadian.

In honor of our fun afternoon, I decided to post an image that never made it to the blog during the games.

Here's our patriotic little Tadpole in his hockey jersey and his Olympic mittens:

Torie & Mike tie the Knot

On an unseasonably warm October day, Jen and I had the pleasure of photographing Torie & Mike's big day. I'm going to keep the words at a minimum and let the images do the talking.

Simple portraits of the Bride and Groom

My favorite image of the day

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Van Der Zee!
Here's to your Happily Ever After.

Happy Birthday

Auntie Tulip!
Wish we could celebrate with you, and we're all looking forward to seeing you at Christmastime!

Here's a quick iPhone snapshot of the birthday girl and the Tadpole from our last quick visit in the Spring.

Tadpole vs Worm - 13 Weeks

I was hoping to have some more wedding images to share today, but the cold bug that's running rampant through our house has put a wrench in my editing plans.

Instead, here's a post that required no effort on my part. Another catch-up of Tadpole vs Worm...

Lily's Grandma

A few days before they moved to Sask., Cynthia called and asked if we could meet up for some more photos. Her Mom was in town, and they wanted a few pictures of baby Lily with her Grandma.

Here's one of my favorites from the day...

A little while ago, I was contacted by the Mom of one of my best-friends from high-school. She had a challenge for me: get a Christmas portrait of all of her grandkids, TOGETHER. No small feat, considering they're a group of 4 adorably independent kids.

Nicola & Claire, it was great to see you again - and your "babies" are just the cutest!!
Jean - thanks for the vote of confidence :)
I hope you all like your photos!

First up, the two pairs of siblings. Nicola's two are the oldest:

And here are Claire's:

Now for the individual portaits. I almost always like b&w better... but I'm struggling a bit when it comes to deciding on these ones, so I'm going to post both.

And last but not least... we did it! We got one of all of the cousins/grandkids, looking oh-so-sweet, and smiling at me... Hooray!


... Thanksgiving!
But more importantly, Happy BIRTHDAY to my good friend Liz.
Hope it's a great one!!

I caught this image at Liz's sister's wedding last weekend, while Liz was posing for a portrait by Jen. So pretty :)

Oh how I love little boys; Specifically, Brothers.
They share such a special relationship and these two were no exception...

Poor poor little duders were squinting into the sun... but they're still Oh.So.CUTE!

This is one of my favorites from the day...

And this last one is a PERFECT example of just how big brothers can make their little brothers laugh at almost anything!
