First Day of School

This will be my daughter’s last first day of school as she enters grade 12 this year. My son is starting “high school” (even though he’s still at the same school as the last 2 years).


Family Portraits 2017

My favourite field to do family photos in Stittsville is now a construction zone. As we were downtown Ottawa one day a few months ago, I noticed how beautiful the stairs were on the East Block of the Parliament Buildings and that they would make a great backdrop for this year’s photos. We parked at the National Arts Centre and saw a cool new art installation “Cloud” where I had to take a picture of my daughter with it. The lighting was not great for a whole family photo with it though. IMG_9616eIMG_9663eIMG_9681e3IMG_9682e211x14IMG_9690e11x14IMG_9702eIMG_9708eIMG_9712e

Halifax & Peggy’s Cove

What luck we had that I booked our trip to Halifax on the same weekend as the Tall Ship Festival! We were able to even tour the Bluenose II. We also stole away to Peggy’s Cove which was a treat for my son as he had painted a picture of it in art class.

Trip Home

I was happy to photograph my favourite couple (my brother and sister-in-law) for their 28th wedding anniversary while I was home visiting. My brother also wanted some badass pictures of him and his new motorcycle.

Willem turns 14!

My youngest child turned 14 yesterday. Since we have no family around he was lucky that both his aunt and grandmother visited and were able to celebrate with him. IMG_8711ewIMG_8728ewIMG_8730ewIMG_8751ewIMG_8754ewIMG_8757ew

Hannah turns 17!

My beautiful daughter turned 17 in April. I haven’t been posting lately and am a little behind. We found these cool rocks piled up in Stittsville. IMG_8402ew3IMG_8414e2IMG_8423ewIMG_8428ewIMG_8434e2w
