I spent the afternoon with with this beautiful family, in my home, and funnily enough, what used to be this new Mom’s home. I was so honoured to meet Amanda and Nick’s precious little boy, Sam, and be able to capture him in portraits. I love how many personal touches we were able to add to our session, from having the session in the home where Amanda grew up, to using a ‘Coke’ crate (Amanda’s favourite drink:), and especially the ‘adding machine’, which is perfect because not only are they both accountants, but the adding machine we used is from my husbands office, and is the same one Sam’s Grandma used, in that same office.

Thanks so much guys for coming to see me. It was so wonderful to spend time with you and meet your son. He was so great for the whole session!

{ONE YEAR} ago today…

April 10, 2012

One year ago today my husband and I were driving to Sunnybrook hospital in Toronto for what was both a joyous and very scary ‘first meeting’ of a very precious little boy, Seth Jeffrey Myer, on the day of his birth. Seth was born 13 weeks early, weighing just over 2lbs. It was weeks before his parents could even touch him…..I can’t imagine how painful that is for a Mom (and Dad). After a hard fought but victorious battle, and 3 months in the hospital, he could finally come home, and today he turns ONE YEAR! We feel so fortunate to have watched this strong, beautiful and happy little guy grow, and we love him to pieces! What a year he has had, and what brave and wonderful parents he has been blessed with.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SETH, AND CONGRATULATIONS JAY AND AMANDA!! We love you all.

This darling little girl came to visit me at the studio today, making it a Good Friday indeed! She was so full of life (and fearlessness….had to add that one for Mom:), and was more than generous with her adorable smiles. It was a joy spending the morning with both her and her lovely mother.

On {DISPLAY}…

April 6, 2012

I am very grateful to both my clients who have allowed me to share their beautiful loved ones for this display, and my amazing and very patient husband for helping me to hang it. I redesigned and hung a new display at the Medical Centre last week. I am so excited, after much preparation, to see the final display come together.
