1 Year Cake Smash Session | Newmarket York Region Photographer

Such a happy little man.  From the moment he walked in the studio he was all smiles.  So handsome, so happy. It was a great session and extremely successful.  I just love milestone sessions, it’s such an amazing honour to be able to capture these long lasting memories for the families.  Not to mention, cake smash sessions are so much fun and messy.  Cake was provided by Cakes by Tanya (  Happy 1st Birthday!

2016 Reflection | Newmarket York Region Photographer

Another year has come and gone. Pretty incredible all the things happened in 2016, personal and business.

The best thing of 2016 is we welcomed our 2nd baby boy Dylan. Born January 29 at alb 14oz. Yep… almost 10lbs! C-section… no way was I gonna try doing it natural. Can’t believe he’s already almost 1. So now i’m in planning stage of his birthday party and his 1 year photo shoot!

Next best: We moved into our new house. We live in Aurora now and just love the area and our house.

Business best: I reno’d my Thornhill Studio. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while. I knocked down a wall, making it twice as big. It’s so lovely and such a warm comfortable environment.

Most importantly, I was able to be part of so many memories and milestones. It’s been a humbling year. 107 sessions and 50 mini sessions. Just incredible and amazing feeling when people trust me with such precious moments.

Thank you all and hope you have an amazing 2017! Happy New Year

September 19 2012 – Sarah’s Bat Mitzvah

A very big Mazel goes out to Sarah on her Bat Mitzvah… She’s such a great person, talented and just super awesome.  Doesn’t surprise me, after meeting the whole family, apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.  The Mitzvah “party” was so much fun, the cool thing is about the rehearsal and the party is that it was at the same Synagogue and Reception hall where her parents got married, and where her brother was Mitzvah’d.  How awesome is that, I just love tradition.

Also a big thank you to Doug from PearStudios and Amelia from FlirtPhotography for coming out and helping me out… Being 9 months prego and shooting def takes a toll but having them there was super duper awesomeness. We had a blast!

Wanted to share some of the images from the events… enjoy~

September 10 2012 – Shelly + Phil + 1

Shelly + Phil are expecting their new bundle of joy mid October, boy or girl? who knows… they are keeping it a surprise. I will guess boy, no girl, no boy… lol… I don’t really know, can’t get a reading… so if I have to choose, I’ll go with boy for them. We started off at their house, doing a more in-studio style session, then moving onto a day in the life, to outside at a park.  It was a great day, hot! but great… 2 very pregnant women in the heat… LOL.  Phil had fun with us two!

Can’t wait to meet their little one… in the mean time, here is their Maternity Session… Shelly looks beautiful!!
