Looking Back, Looking Forward (2014 Edition)
Well golly if another year hasn't come and gone...
2014 was a tough year for me personally - my father passed away in the summer. That really put a cloud over a lot of the year for me... it takes some getting used to, the world less a person you love. The process has been broadening but difficult, but it takes me constantly back to loving where you're at, living in the now and making your space a happy one. Photos take me to that place too... kids laughing at flying leaves, grooms tearing up as they see their bride, parents soothing crying babes. It's the stuff of life, the moments that make us, the memories we hold on to.
I took some of my favourite photos ever this year. I photographed in barns and on beaches (two destination weddings last winter!), in parks, on porches and walking through towns, woods and wineries. I worked for some new people (I photographed a few events for LOULOU magazine), but spent most of my time with brides and grooms, babies and families. Having my work featured on Today's Bride was unexpected and wonderful.
2015 looks to be banner year - I'm happy to be making appearances at Grey Silo Golf Course, Steckle Heritage Farm and Whistle Bear Golf Course, but I'm equally excited for the back yards and barns, cottages and churches that will backdrop my wedding clients.
I was going to talk a while longer (lots of fun things are happening!), but I think I'll just get to the photos instead...
These are some of my favourites from this past year. Enjoy.
my fav photo from a session with the lamberts, where their pug (Little Man) invaded nearly every shot
this photo of Ty & Ali on the shores of Georgian Bay was my most popular photo online last year... what a perfect summer day it was
that moment where you see your love walking down the beach to marry you...
I think I may do a little more work in black & white this coming year. I love this shot from Steph & Chad's wedding in Muskoka...
at a summer sunset engagement session with Allison and Ross we stopped on the edge of the road and found one of the greatest photo spots of the year... a freshly cut hayfield with the sun setting behind
want to see last year's best of?
