I can’t believe my son Henry is 9 months old! It seems like just yesterday I was shooting my last wedding with a giant belly and swollen feet.

He has to be one of the easiest babies……he sleeps/eats and giggles.  { you can cross off the sleeping…..he has had a relapse in the last couple of days. Oh and the teething……his last episode had all four top teeth come in….that was fun. }

His latest development is crawling and couch surfing. I knew this day was coming and I have been dreading it. Up until now I’ve been able to plop him down in one spot and get some work done.

But now…….not so much work. I try to get a bit done everyday. Check a one or two things off my list.

So as promised I will now admit that I am not a super mum! { To check out waht I’m talking about go to my fellow Photographer Chenin’s  blog post }

I routinely go until 2pm without showering. I eat my son’s left over banana cereal because I don’t have time to make my own. I secretly fantasize about running away for a couple days just to get some work done. I keep trying to give my son a soother hoping that one day……..he will take it back and I will no longer be his personal pacifier. I could go on.

I thought being a wedding photographer was action packed…….I had no clue what being a mum would require a degree in Psychology and 6 months cardio training.

I love my son. Henry has brought more joy to my life in 9 months than my entire 35 years has given me. But he sure does keep me on my toes.

And now I must run because he is just about to pull the tray out of the blueray player and my loving husband will have a heart attack.

Enjoy the pictures…….

Now for some out takes……

Crawling is making this harder.


Sometimes he isn’t even in the shot. I want to get this one as a HUGE canvas for Henry’s wall.


Like I said I have about 3.5 seconds to get the shot now.

Well the babymoon is over and I’m officially back to work.

I photographed Maggie + Rafal back in August of 2009. I think it was a test……they soon were engaged and I was booked to shoot their wedding.

Even though my fingers almost froze off during the outdoor photo session…..I think we manages to get some pretty cool shots.

Maggie’s attention to detail made my job so easy. Everywhere you looked there was something to take a picture of.



Maggie’s eyes are stunning in this shot.


Rafal sure knows how to make a picture come alive.


The details where amazing!



Love this last one…….


Thank you Maggie and Rafal for letting me document your amazing wedding.

Jennifer and Alex are getting married at their parents home in Mississauga. With the reception to follow at the Fermenting Cellar in the Distillery District. They ventured out to my studio in Puslinch to take some fun engagement shots. The light was stunning!

Here are my favorites from the shoot.




I love how these two portraits have a painterly quality to them…….the light that night was magical.





This last shot is so sexy……and how can you go wrong with a purple tutu????

At the beginning of this year I made the announcement that I was going to shoot more portraits  and less weddings. Just so I could spend more time at home preparing for the arrival of babybone. Well……bam! Portraits abound. Here are some of the results of those shoots……..

This first shot was taken during one of my one on one workshops…….thanks Susie for being such a great model!


Bellies seem to be a theme…..




And how can you have bellies without babies……….Shane is the cutest little dude ever!


I love the difference between the next two……the first looks like he is asking his first love ever out on a date!


The second is when she said yes……..




Kyrsten is a previous bride of mine………who is soon to be a mommy!  Any day………can’t wait to meet he/she!


And Jonas……uber cutie pie!



All of the above portraits were taken in and around the barebonestudio.

If you would like to arrange for your own session, you can contact us at or give us a call 519.841.7140 or 888.841.7840.

Amy and Dave will be married this fall in true vintage style at Amy’s family home in St Agatha.

I can’t wait!

For their barebonelove session we headed To Clyde where Amy keeps her horse……couldn’t have asked for a nicer day!

Height difference…..what height difference?






I love the way Dave is looking at Amy in this shot!


We couldn’t leave without a shot with the horse!

Rachel and Ryan are one of the sweetest couples that I have met to date. When I said that by the end of the session I would have them making out in public. They just giggled and said that their southwestern sensibilities would probably wouldn’t allow it……..soooo sweet!

And I think that comes through in this set of pictures!

They will be married next spring at the beautiful Hauser Hall.

I spent this past Saturday afternoon with Josee and Peter. I really can’t believe this is my job. I  get to hang out with some of the coolest and sweetest people. ( I’m actually going to be writing a blog shortly about how an increasing amount of clients are becoming a part of the barebonefamily!)  AND I get to do my favorite thing in the world, take pictures.

Josee and Peter will get married this coming January at the Rosewater in Toronto.

Here are some of my favorite images.
