I’ve been told I have a knack for finding locations no matter where I am. This day was no different. We stumbled across this abandoned barn when I got a little lost on the way to the reception.

I fell in love with this location… that pink door was made for Kaitlyn.

I loved everything about this wedding. Especially Kaitlyn’s shoes… who wouldn’t look at those sparkly Kate Spade pumps! Seriously… favorite wedding shoes EVER!

I just had to include this last shot… I can’t remember why they were making this face. Probably when I told them I was done for the night :).  Anyway it was too cute not to include.

Thank you Kaitlyn and Justin for choosing barebonephoto to be a part of your wedding day.

Meghan and Alex, thank you for having us document your amazing day!

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.

To celebrate the arrival of their new little one I thought I would post Ashley’s barebonebelly shoot.

It rained on their wedding and it rained on during the belly shoot……..I said I would be disappointed if it didn’t rain when thier baby came.

But even better the sun was out! Congratulations Ashley and Blake I can’t wait to meet baby Cooper!









…..just the begnning.

Maria and Sanju recently welcomed Desmond in the world.

He is is one of the smallest, most sweet little babies I have ever had the pleasure to photograph.

His little squawks melt my heart.


Shhhhhh….he’s sleeping!



Maria I cannot belive you had a baby days before these pictures were taken……you looked stunning!



This is one of my favorite shots……a fathers look….a mothers touch…and a half smile.


I love little baby feet!


Thank you Maria, Sanju and Desmond for welcoming me into your home.

It was an honor to capture the first days of your new life together.

Last week Henry turned 5 months.

Watching him grow has become my new favorite past times. But I wish it would go just a little bit slower.

I’ve been taking lots of pictures so I can remember every moment and I thought I would share some from past month.




These last two where taken by my dear friend Chris.



If you can believe it my next couple of posts will actually be some WORK…..yes the dreaded 4 letter word! I’m back in the swing of things. With one wedding and 4 portraits down. I’m feeling good about working again. But I wouldn’t be human if I didn’t say I was struggling a bit with going back to work so soon. I LOVE my job…….most days it doesn’t even feel like work.But my sweet little Henry is what I miss when I work. His hugs and smiles and even his little squawks.

And as I type this now Henry is screaming for my attention. I’m going to say right now… is the hardest thing I have ever done……being a mother and trying to work.

But I should go……before Henry really gets mad and I feel like a bad mum.

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????
