It was like deja vu of our session two years ago when Fraser turned one. Same barn (thanks again Jim!!), same ol’ Ziggy, same beautiful sister…just a different however equally adorable little one year old gaffer.

People, I can shoot lightening fast. :P Between Lainey running late and me needing to leave for an appointment, we had 22 minutes, but I was totally confident as I drove off, that we’d pulled it off again: the cutest western shoot of 2017. Boom. :)

Check out these huge smiles and equally huge attitude. <3



Thanks Lainey for trusting me to make your your wild, Wild West dreams come true. ;) Love  you guys. xoxo

I do believe that this was the very nicest day this fall. The leaves were at their peak, and that SUN! These colours are real! This backdrop truly was this gorgeous.

I had such a great time shooting these guys. It’s been 5 years since I last did and now kid’s married, another’s engaged and the last one is single but all grown up. ;) Look at these teens! (I hear Karin give a sad sniffle. Our kids grow up waaaay too fast…which is exactly why getting photos taken is so important!)


Thanks ya’ll. Loved shooting you guys again.

Cheers! :)

Last month we had the pleasure of going to Arianna and Marc’s wedding in St.Cathrine’s, Ontario. It was such a beautiful, sunny weekend; the bride was gorgeous; the company was wonderful; and the wine, fantastic.

We rented a home along the lake where we all stayed and got ready together…


I love first looks…and what a beauty place to have one!


Cheers to a great day! We went to 3 different wineries in a huge limo bus with 15 of us.

This is where it got interesting. And stressful…just a tad anyway. I was in the bridal party, but was also the photographer. I’d never been to any of the places that we stopped at, had to race around looking for cool places to shoot, all while trying not to look like a sweaty mess for the pictures that I had to be in. Talk about working on the FLY! Super-woman, if you don’t mind me saying so. :D (My one regret is that, for most of the pics, I forgot to change out of my runners for my fab heels. :P )



Check out this ceremony/reception site overlooking a golf course and out to Niagra Falls! :O The perfect spot to say “I do.” <3


Congratulations Arianna and Marc and Marc welcome to the family. Love you guys. xoxo


A new great-nephew! Jax seem to hate sleeping. Apparently he was awake for the first 24 hours of his life (not usual for sure!) and he still doesn’t sleep much during the day. Seriously this little dude’s so alert and curious – very good Klaassen genes I think. :)


Jax loved it outside best of all! He’d already caught a bit of sunshine in his crib during the shoot, but we so were happy to catch the sun juuust before it went down. Brent and Janae live in a new house, in a subdivision where the houses are still being built and there’s a lot of mud around. I knew they’d be up for clambering up to the top of a dirt pile (hey they had no qualms about climbing up on top of an excavator last year) with me to get into that sun, and I’m so glad we did!!


Thanks Brent and Janae! I loved shooting you three. xox

  • Cora - What a cute little guy!!! Awesome pics of a great little family XOXO

Meet Bowen, who’s all kinds of beautiful. He wasn’t really feeling very into the session (not that you can tell exactly ;)) until we took him outside, into the sunshine and then he was lights out…


There is nothing I love more than being able to shoot outside and this early fall day was perfection.


That arm he slung over his eyes to block out the bright sun kills me! Could he BE any cuter?!

Thanks and congrats Greg and Breanna! :)
