Spring time usually means two thing…….warm weather is on the way. And lots of babies in the studio.
Well this year we can’t guarantee warm weather…….but babies are starting to make an appearance icon smile Baby Madeline ~ Baby portraits Guelph

Baby Madeline was such a perfect little model. She loved sleeping and all the love she was getting from her wonderful parent.

Enjoy these images and I hope they will warm your heat…….because the sunshine is still a couple weeks away.

Kyrsten and Mike have been coming to the studio for portraits for years now. They truly are one of the barebonefamily. Henry ( my son ) even hung out for the session and acted as my assistant. A play date ensued with Emerson shortly after.

I can’t wait to get back outside and shoot in the fresh air and maybe….just maybe have a little sunshine to play with.
Our family portrait side of things is booming so if your interested in booking a session for the summer, make sure your let us know sooner than later. Weekend sessions are going fast.

I am so in love with this love session…….It makes makes me ache for sweater weather.

Ashley and Teddy came to the studio in Puslinch three days before their wedding for an barebonelove session.
I insist on a love session. Not just because……..but to get to know you as a couple.
And get to know your best side. I’d rather work it all out before the day of the wedding…….rather than wasting precious time on the day. If your comfortable in front of my camera before the day……then it is easy peasy.

I also want to know what makes you laugh, can I tell a dirty joke…..will you lay down in mud for me?
It’s all about making the big day as easy as possible.
And if your lucky you walk away with some fantastic images just like these two!AshleyTeddy bblove blog Ashley+Teddy barebonelove engagement

Dan and Michelle were married this past fall at London Club, in London, ON. This one was close to home. My Sister In Laws sister was getting married. And when you come from a family of four and the rest of your extended family is back in England. Family is anyone within arms length. So having my entire family present including my parents and big brother was pretty neat.
Dan and Michelle thanks for letting me be a part of your day. Hopefully you can show these images to your son……that is on the way! How cool is that. Cannot wait to meet him. The barebonefamily grows by one more!

What a whirl wind of a year 2013 was. I started it out thinking…..WOW I’m going to have so much time to relax and enjoy life! I made the decision last year to take less weddings and focus on portrait photography and maybe just maybe get to spend some time with my family. How could you not want to when your son is this crazy?

Well I got more weekends to hang out with the family but when all is said and done I will have shot close to 60 portraits this year! 3 times as many as I did the previous year. So more family time………but VERY busy in the studio. And we love it.

Mini sessions were a HUGE success and we sold out every event. And we are going to make them a permanent part of our business. There will be a spring, summer and fall and holiday mini session this  year.

Here is an amazing family shot from our Valentines sessions last year……..

So if you are looking to take part in our mini sessions send us an email and get on the waiting list!  ~ ~  You don’t want to miss out.

Another huge change last was the addition of two part-time classes to my teaching schedule at Conestoga College. I teach photography to the Graphic Design students. And I’m LOVING it. The students get excited and then I get even more excited. And it pushes me to explore my craft even more. I feel like I’m looking at my camera and my subjects with a new set of eyes.

And I can see the effect teaching is having on my images. This image below is one of my favorites all year………… me it is hard to pick there are a TON this year. But the crinkle at the corner of her eye……and that smile…..the touch. I love it all.
I am truly and deeply in love with my craft and to be able to say that after shooting for 22 years is pretty amazing.

I know that 2014 will bring just as many amazing changes are 2013 did. We already have a couple surprises in store……to be announced at a later date.
But for now……..HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all!
From our family to yours!
