The whole day was powered by the most radiant of smiles. Not just the bride’s own spectacular smile, but from everyone. From her groom, to their parents, to their relatives, to their friends, to everyone. By itself, that vibrance is rare magic. The day probably seemed like it couldn’t be any more special, until Alex stepped up to speak to his guests. He shared the struggles both families had faced battling illnesses in previous years, explaining the meaning of the bombonieres on the table – a donation to the Cancer Council. He stumbled on his words as Michelle got up to join him by his side, a silent, but present source of strength to help him through. And so I knew, that every one of those smiles was etched in the joyful grit of life – in sickness and in health. To see all those moments together, in one day, is rare magic.

Michelle and Alex’s stunning wedding can also be seen in the current issue of Ever After magazine.

Ben & Valeska

Wow.  How spectacular is this beauty of a wedding.  Our talented lead Renata photographed this special day and as I edited through the images, I felt completely caught up in the beauty of it all.  The golden light.  That connection.  Promises under a chuppah in the forest.  Valeska’s flowing locks and those glowing smiles throughout.  Not to mention all those guests who shared in the joy of every moment with the couple, and that spectacular feast under the night’s sky.  I look back on this set of images and I’m so thankful.  For our amazing team.  For our amazing clients, and all who trust our vision in documenting their love.  It truly is a privilege.  Thank you for sharing it with us.

The Copelin Family

It’s always such a privilege to be asked back into the lives of clients and friends, sharing in the next milestone both behind, and aside from, the lens.  I love the connection this beautiful family shared, little Lucas is a very lucky little boy with parents like him to walk alongside him on the journey ahead.  I have a soft spot for these images and hope you love them too.  Sweet.  Simple.  And seriously golden. xo

The Robertson Family

This incredible family are on holidays somewhere on the other side of the world right now.  No doubt being inspired, and inspiring others.  All part of a normal day for them.  We joked that their little guy Elijah would be a different boy when they returned but we knew it was so very true.  Time has a way of stealing what was, and at the same time gifting back in all kinds of beauty and wonder each and every day that follows.  A reminder to live in the present.  To cherish what is.  To breathe it all in because there is no better time than now.

The Robertsons are dear friends of ours, and a family that lives beautifully by faith.  I loved capturing all that was their here and now, life and all the fleeting in between. It was such a gift to be able to photograph this session for them, and hang out just because while we were at it.  Thank you my lovelies! xo

Little Valeria

There is a special kind of joy to witness in new families.  The magic of two becoming three.  The mystery of human life that is intricately and forever connected with your own.  The knowledge that tomorrow will be different to today, and of what is here and now.  I loved this quiet session.  Drinking in sunrise by the beach, complete with cuddles and snuggles, sand in our toes and the sound of the ocean greeting the shore.  These are the golden days, thankful to have captured a little slice of it for keeps.
