Mini Sneak Peek

I was just going through the pictures of a photo shoot I did yesterday with one of my favourite models.  This one is so adorable that I had to post it right away!  Isn't she a sweetie?!  Stay tuned for more pictures of this little cutie pie.

Happy Birthday

My love of photography actually started with wanting to be in front of the camera when I was younger.  As I got older and the wrinkles started to appear, I preferred to be behind the camera!  :)

I'm always bugging my family to let me take pictures of them so i thought it was my turn to get some pictures done.   I decided to have a Birthday photo shoot for myself (not an easy task! :)).

Here I am at the age of 38, wrinkles and all......

Christmas Card Outtake

Every year, the kids and I have a blast taking pictures for our Christmas card.  Thought I would share an outtake from this year....this one didn't make it onto the card :)

My good friend Steve's father was kind enough to come and talk to my son's cub troop this week.  He's a world war II veteran and it was so interesting to hear him talk.  I can't believe that he joined the military when he was only 16 years old!  He's such a sweet and caring man and I feel honoured to know him!

the boys were very interested in his medals

beautiful family

I had the pleasure of photographing the family of Marlayne Hardy,  a consultant for Stampin Up! who is a successful business woman and very talented at creating gorgeous cards...you can check out her website here: http://sparkledaisy.com/

The weather was really cold for our session but you wouldn't know if from looking at these pictures...they had such great style and are so photogenic!  We managed to find a fantastic location that still had some nice Fall colour.

Thanks Marlayne, hope you enjoy your sneak peek!  :)

Future Rock Star

Love this location...it's actually a drainage ditch

aren't they cute?!

Pretty in Pink

I love newborns....they are so sweet and innocent!   This little girl is such a beauty...she was so good and was so full of smiles while she was sleeping.  Thanks for the visit baby "A", come back soon!  :)

 I love little piggies!  :)

look at those smiles...I wonder what she's dreaming of!

Kanata Family

I had a great time with this family at Walter Baker park.....it ended up being a beautiful sunny day!

The boys were kind enough to teach me a new "knock knock" joke....i'll have to remember to watch out for garbage on my head when someone knocks at my door  :)

the boys were getting tired of being models so we ended with some fun at the park

Fun at the Experimental Farm

I had the pleasure of photographing these adorable sisters back in June and was thrilled to get to do it again! (here's the link to their previous session: http://michellebarbeau.blogspot.com/2010/06/sisters.html).  They live down the street from the Experimental Farm so we thought it would be nice to check out the Ornamental gardens.  We had a great time exploring, smelling flowers and climbing trees.

Thanks for the wonderful morning girls!

My Big Brother

I did a mini shoot of my Brother's adorable family while at my parents house for Thanksgiving dinner.  A couple of people weren't overly cooperative (I won't say who but lets just say we were interrupting someone's time on the Wii machine :)).  My cute little nephew was being cooperative so we got lots of nice pictures of him...this will be a long post because he's just so sweet, look at those blue eyes and chubby cheeks!!
