Dominic turns 1!

I had a session with Dominic and his big brother earlier this summer and just last month Dominic celebrated his first birthday and I got to photograph him again! We booked a cakesmash session…minus the cake :-)


Cakesmash ~ Jillian

Happy 1st Birthday Jillian!! Alright, it’s not for a couple of days, but I met you when you were about 6 months old and you’ve been my toughest client. You made me work hard to get smiles out of you :)

I thought maybe at our second meeting you’d have warmed up to me a little bit, but alas…

I did get a smile though that day!

Now you’re 1 and walking and smiley and I think we’re the best of friends! Tell your mommy thank you for introducing us and letting me take your picture all the time. :)


Newborn ~ Ariyah

Well I have now had the opportunity to photograph Ariyah three times-2 days old, 10 days old and today at 3 weeks old. She has been easy to pose and when you hear that it’s difficult to shoot your own newborn, TRUST ME…IT IS! Ariayh has given me some canvas worthy shots and if  canvases were free I’d order a bajillion of them :)

Pardon my overload of images of her…she’s just to sweet and I melt when I look at her :)

And the winners are…

The guesses have been tallied and we have a winner in the Guess the Gender contest!  First let’s start by saying I had a beautiful baby girl on July 8th @ 1o:46 a.m. Her name is Regan Ariyah and she was 7 pounds  1 ounce.  Here she is on day 2 of life:

To clarify the rules, the winner had to have the sex of the baby correct and come as close as possible to the birth weight. The winner of the first place prize which  includes 1 full studio session, 10 digital files on DVD, two 8×10 prints and one 5×7 print is Chris from Barrie!  The winner of the second place prize which includes 1 mini studio session, 5 digital files on DVD and a one 5×7 is Natalie Lawler from Vaughn!

Chris was pretty smack on with a guess of a girl at 7pounds 0 ounces and Natalie’s guess was girl at 6pounds 8 ounces. 

The winners both have until July 22nd to contact me and claim your prize. If I do not hear from either winner then will pick the next to closest guessers.  Please refer back to the fine print to find out what sessions you can use your prize on.

Thanks for playing and you can believe that there will be plenty of image posted of this beauty!

Newborn ~ Tristan

Welcome to the world Tristan! Another cute-tastic client, he slept the entire time! Loooooove when they’re this easy! Tristan is my last newbie before my own arrives and I know mom and dad (probably more so dad :) ) are anxious for this sneak peak.  Enjoy Brad & Lilet :)


Newborn ~ Mia

Sweet, sweet Mia. She came ready to have her photos taken. She woke up only to poop and that was it! Gotta love a session like that!

Maternity ~ Me!

Back in May I had the pleasure of meeting up with another local photographer and getting some maternity photos/family photos done. We had a blast! Mind you I think my little guy had the most fun.It’s funny that when he was 2 he ran away from the camera and now, at 3, if his picture isn’t getting taken as well it then becomes a crisis! :-) Here are some of the images taken by Elaine of ElaineEve Photography. Check her out HERE! She’s a whole mess of fun to work with and the results are awesome.

Thanks Elaine!

D.P. Photography is having a baby!!

I’m sure if most of you follow me on Facebook, then you already know that I’ll be expecting our second baby in July. Actually THIS CANADA DAY WEEKEND is my due date! This pregnancy has flown by and I can’t wait to introduce him/her to the world. I had my last session prior to baby’s arrival this past weekend, a sweet 2-week old I can’t wait to share with you and I will be taking off the month of July to adjust to rest up and then back at it in August. I’ll have some cakesmashes for some familiar cuties that will be turning the big ONE and obviously my own newborn will have the pleasure of being blogged…probably quite often! :)

So stay tuned for what’s coming and I’ll be back in August!  Thanks again to all my clients and Facebook fans for your support.  Love you guys!! :-)

Maternity Session

If I haven’t already said so, I love maternity sessions. This one was no exception. Mom wanted to keep it simple, no bare tummy shots, but I convinced her to try one and she has a beautiful belly! I can’t wait to meet her little one when they arrive for their session. Good luck in delivery and enjoy your sneak peak! :)




Told you she had a gorgeous belly! :)

Michael & Baby Bro D

I had to do a post of my last U of T mini sessions. I think Laura and I had to reschedule this session 3 times because of all the rain we had in April, but finally last weekend we had a beautiful Saturday for a session. Her guys were adorable and super easy to work with. Big brother Michael did a great job at getting smiles from Baby D, because really, D was over me when we started LOL :-)

It was great meeting you and your little men Laura! :)
