We Are Fa-mi-ly! The George Family

April 20, 2017

My, how time flies and you get to see couples go through their life stages from their engagement, their wedding, their maternity and with God’s grace, a beautiful miracle of a child. I saw Rebekah and Stephan the moment that she said, “Yes!” in a romantic surprise proposal at Union Station. Since then, I had attended […]

We Are Fa-mi-ly! The Gubisi Family

April 6, 2017

When word gets around the office that I have a photography side-gig, it’s a great rumor to be spreading! Hehe! My colleague, Carol, has always radiated her smile around the office and I was humbled when she asked me to capture the smiles of the rest of her family! After our first son was born, […]

Welcome to the world, Evan James!

December 16, 2016

Evan = Fighter-Young Warrior-God is gracious / James = son of thunder Truly, the name couldn’t have been more perfect for Evan James who arrived safe & sound, although a month early. For reasons unknown, he was growing small and the best decision by the O.B. was to have him “out” for closer and safer […]

A month and a half had passed since I had seen Jessica and Marc for their maternity session. It was music to my ears when I had seen Jessica announce the arrival of Baby Ashton! Not long after, I was humbled to get the call to meet her and capture her at this fresh stage. What […]

We Are Fa-mi-ly! Introducing Baby Clark

June 17, 2016

Baby Clark had finally arrived! I was ecstatic to hear that he came safely in Jennifer and Josh‘s arms. As I never want to pressure new parents of when to plan for the newborn session, the timing was just right for all of us to get together. Clark had been sleeping when I arrived and […]

We Are Fa-mi-ly! Introducing Baby Isabella

April 14, 2016

She had finally come. It was surreal to get a call from Ashley and Joel about a month after their maternity session, letting me know that Baby Isabella had finally arrived! I was due to head back to their home and how wonderful it was to see these new parents beaming with joy and sharing with […]

We Are Fa-mi-ly! The Douglas Family

February 25, 2016

“…and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply…” – Gen 1:28 Carissa and Patrick took the part of their wedding vows seriously when they accepted “… children lovingly from God, and (will) bring them up according to the law of Christ and his Church.” Having a large family, however, was already their heart’s desire even […]

We Are Fa-mi-ly! The Belo Family

January 7, 2016

Whenever I’m asked to take photos of friends whom I admire, I’m both humbled and excited to see them at the session. As I’ve gotten to know them through one of my groomsmen, Moses, who is cousins with Oliver (the husband and father of this family), I know of their many accomplishments. Aside from their children […]

A Year in Review: 2015

December 31, 2015

So the year has ended and I thought to share my favourite pics from the sessions I had. I was given the honour of shooting weddings, engagements, maternity sessions (some for couples whose weddings I had shot previously), and shortly after, the grace to meet the baby that grew inside the mother’s womb, family sessions, […]

A Day in a Life of Emery

July 23, 2015

This was the funnest, most creative family session yet. Edgar and I go way back…high school. He was a grade older, yet being both in the visual arts streams, he was truly someone I looked up to (and not because he was anywhere near taller than me *inside j/k!*!). From his drawings to his paintings […]

Welcome to the world, Jonathan Matthias!

February 27, 2015

Jonathan = The Lord Has Given  /  Matthias = Gift of the Lord And truly, after a 9-month stretch, God has given us a beautiful gift and his name is Jonathan Matthias. He came punctual on the projected due date but was also an answer to many of those who had us in prayer. These […]

Merry Christmas and a Happy New 2015 Year!

December 25, 2014

“Christmas time…is here!” as the classic song croons us with this wonderful announcement. It’s also a time for reflection of how the year had passed…an examination of conscience, if you will. I can say that I am so grateful for the many blessings I have been given, as this was my busiest year yet. Still […]

L.S. + J.R. ~ The Knot Is Tied!

December 5, 2014

Ensuring that your wife is always fully stocked with business cards is always a good thing. My wife, Michelle, had met Lauren at one of the “Mommy & Me” groups and it was so timely that they would connect. Lauren and Jason were to be married and needed some formal shots taken between the ceremony […]

We Are Fa-mi-ly! ~ The Nicholas Family

August 28, 2014

Connections, connections, connections! So here’s the story of how I got connected with the Nicholas family. As I was a young budding photographer, Vanessa, the Program Director for Faith Connections, had total faith in me (no pun intended) in capturing their “Theology on Tap” events. What could a photographer ask for? Free wings, great talks […]

We Are Fa-mi-ly! ~ Baby Evan’s First Photoshoot

April 21, 2014

Springtime is finally upon us: warmer weather, the sight of geese in “V” formations returning from the south and new births in practically everything – grass, flowers, crops and babies!!! I was really privileged to shoot my first baby session of this year, as Rayna and Jordan had me over to meet their first-born, Evan. […]

We Are Fa-mi-ly! ~ featuring the Lin Family

January 17, 2014

So this is how Facebook works best … reconnections! I knew Carin way back in elementary school but only really got to be great friends in high school. After graduation, everyone went their separate ways and went on with their life’s journey. Well, enter Facebook. When I had decided to “finally” join Facebook (my excuse […]

Anniversaries are great celebrations when a couple can take the opportunity to reflect on life’s accomplishments and all the hurdles that have been overcome. With Barbara and Gordon’s anniversary, we took the opportunity to capture the wonderful eternal smiles of love — and not just of them but of the generations after. Shot at Milliken […]

Kaileigh’s Family Photoshoot

November 8, 2012

Since Nathaniel has entered our lives (now, at seven months), our life has changed: topics of conversation have all been concentrated on “what’s best for baby”; meeting new parents who can empathize with new experiences and “unknowns”; and of course, rearranging schedules to accommodate proper sleeping habits … well rested baby = happy baby = […]
