THE DAWKINS FAMILY PHOTO SESSION AT HOBBY HORSE

Hello Lovely,

Last week Sunday I was sitting at home, after a long day of cleaning, when I got a call from my hairstylist. Her family planned to have a photoshoot, but the photographer was no longer available so she called me. I was honoured that she chose me to photograph her family. Over the past two years, Jamell has told me numerous stories about her family, but I never met them until the shoot. Can you believe she has THREE sisters? Imagine, raising FOUR girls, all with larger than life personalities! I wonder if her parents were trying for a boy, but I’m sure they wouldn’t trade any of their daughters for anything in the world!

I haven’t done a photoshoot in forever, so I was worried I might’ve been a little rusty, but once I met everyone, I had nothing to worry about. I just love this family! I laughed the entire session! Everyone brought so much energy, I hardly had to direct at all, which is my favourite kind of client. We moved through this session really quickly and I’m really happy with how many shots we got in only one hour of shooting. Thank you guys for inviting me to capture this moment for you; I feel like an honorary member of the family now!

 
 
 

Ariana's First Birthday

Sugar and Spice and everything nice!  My little girl is just that and more! Ariana is my best friend's daughter, and after her brother was born five years ago, I thought I would never love another baby the same. But the moment I looked into those eyes of hers I knew I would do anything for her! It's been a really busy year, but Oh My Gosh, it's been a whole year!

Can you believe that this baby:

Is now this baby?!

Where has the time gone? Ariana is already walking and fascinated by the sounds she makes. She even sang a little song for us while we were shooting. She was not shy at all and we had so much fun with her portraits. Ariana (or Riri as she's affectionately called) came alive as soon as the camera turned on and dazzled us with her toothy grin!

So from Mommy, Daddy, Liam, Goddy Livy and all of your godparents, have the happiest first birthday a baby could ever have! We love you Riri!

Look Who's 30 Photo shoot!

Hello Lovely,

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of shooting a friend of mine's 30th Birthday Party. That's where I used those super cool photobooth props! Everyone had a great time, and I was even gifted with the delicately sparkling and endlessly romantic perfume and limited edition, Chance Eau Tendre by Chanel! I love Chanel! I'm not obsessed with it, but I just love everything it stands for. But enough about me!

The decorators did a smashing job! I wanted to take everything home! And when the cake arrived, it was just too pretty to cut (but of course we still ate it)!

Telia was a delight to shoot and work with! Here are just some of the highlights from her special day!

XoX,
