Ashbridges Bay, Toronto at sunset

This is one of my favourite places for photos in Toronto! The sand, water, long grass and brilliantly dramatic light make the beach something truly special.

I'm in LOVE with this photo. Such fun! Such joy! Such great photographic subjects! Such coordination! What a dream.

Yep. Of course this sweet boy's name is Chewie. I couldn't imagine it any other way.



The simplicity of this image appeals to me on a deep level. So warm, quiet and peaceful.

The Bond

This photo has quickly become one of my all-time favourites. Wow. The emotion, the bond, the light, the colour... it all came together in a truly beautiful moment.

This is what I got up to this weekend! 

These two are retired jumpers who are living out their retirement in the lap of luxury. They absolutely adore one another. I was ecstatic to capture their bond in this shot. They're inseparable.

Business cards - serious business!

I've finally gotten my act together and designed some business cards for myself. Yay! The cards are a lovely, heavy card stock with a variety of different backs which were chosen to represent a different aspect of my photography business. They have a lovely matte finish, and the colours are rich and solid. 

Here's a great big "thank you!" to all my wonderful models.
