I love doing extended families -and this one had both sides of great-grandparents, an auntie, and lots of cute kiddo’s and couples! Pretty neat to see a whole family together like this. These were taken on their property near Burgessville. I love shooting in the country. And every time I get a peek into a families life, and make some neat connections (like the Great Grandfather actually knew my Mother in law from when she was little in Holland!) as well as sharing some stories of having a child with special needs with one of the couple’s – the time together is truly a special gift. And on top of it, you have these pictures to show for it.

When you have friends that stop by on their way home to Nova Scotia every couple years… you have to take their family picture. 🙂 We spent some time in the country, and then went a few minutes into Brantford’s downtown. Hitting the old Public Library. The kids did great, all such naturals with the camera as both of their parents do photography in their everyday lives. Enjoyed capturing their family again.

My Dad has wanted a 1938 Chevrolet for years. He’s had a dream to rebuild cars, like he used to do when he was young. (Except I think he did more hot-rodding them at the time!). A could years ago, one of my brothers found this car on Kijiji, bought it, and though it was 36 hours away, my dad and another brother traveled out to get it. Since bringing it back – and though in good external condition, my dad has been restoring the proper parts, painting parts, and making the internal side of the car like it was in it’s glory days. He’s also made it road worthy, and so it can get “up to highway speed”. A pretty neat dream fulfilled – or in the making – right now for him, as he’s finally “retired”.
While I was out west in the summer we did a little shoot of Dad & Mom and the car-special and fun for me!2019-01-24_0012.jpg

While out west this past year, I got to take some pictures of my family. I have six siblings, and lots of nieces and nephews – but for now I’ll just show you one of the lovely families – my brother Cameron, his amazing wife Lisa and their seven (with their eighth on the way!) kiddos.

I loved doing these pictures with these guys. Matt and Anna were easy going, and the girls Abby and Madalynn were fun and totally girls! We blew bubbles, threw pine cones, and played music – getting these lovely shots of their family. Since having Jason and entering into a bit of the “special needs” world, I appreciate seeing parents like Matt and Anna, who are doing such a great job. They love, serve, teach and train, while having lots of fun with both of their girls.

One of my last weddings to take on in 2018. Garret and Henriette are a wonderful couple, who were very themselves on their special day. I do so appreciate brides -like Henriette,who were thinking of others and their needs during her wedding celebrations. These two had a sunny spring day in Otterville, to celebrate their new life together, surrounded by a lot of wonderful family members. Kirsten Peereboom was my amazing second shooter and I couldn’t have done it without her.
