Family Time

What a gorgeous day for pictures and another baby belly too!

Baby Bump

I love love love baby bellies. Maybe it's a girl thing but something about the shape and essense, the whole idea of a little person hidden within the belly, just seems so beautiful to me. Congratulations to Todd and Kirsten who gave birth to an adorable baby boy shortly after this shoot.


Welcome the new addition to the Morriss family!

Hot Hot Hot!

Some people just give it their all and Candace- wow, what a girl ! I loved this shoot, you're gorgeous.

D & D

Another February shoot and I can honestly say I had never met a person who could come out of a painful tooth surgery and still pull off fantastic engagement photos- this girl was determined! These guys were given this session as a gift and what a treat it was. We started at the house she grew up in and made it out to the river by the end. Desiree and Darryl were married later this year, congratulations guys, you make a great couple!


I love these shoots, I don't always get to post them but it's something I do a lot of. Almost any girl I talk to wants these done and wow did Kayte really pull it off! Thanks for being ..just you :)

Love through Generations

I had the honour of meeting and photographing this wonderful couple February of this year. During our session I asked if they had any wedding photos that they would share with me. A few moments later they brought up this photograph. It is the only photograph taken that they know of from that day and they didn't even know it existed until almost 20 years after they were married. It was so heart warming to see the love between them as they spoke of their life spent together since, their children and grand children. For me this photograph reminds me of who are are and where they came from.

I was unsure of how to start this post and what to title it so I decided on the simplest of statements that truly states what I want to say, which is

I miss you Mom

Between May and July I took a 8 week leave from editing to spend time with my family and our mother who passed June 25th after battling a very unexpected and short fight with brain cancer. It seems that everyone I've met in my life knows or has lost someone with this awful disease, for all of you that have, I am so sorry. Mom was very much a rock in my life and the kind of woman that brought a smile to my face on any given day. She taught our family patience, strength and how to love unconditionally, not just through words but everyday acts. She was a devoted wife to my father and always made a point to tell me stories of how they had met or what she loved about him and the little things he did that made her smile. She loved us children and her grandchildren to the ends of this world. She was wonderful and beautiful. I miss her more than I could ever imagine.
I just needed to say thank you to any of you that have worked with me this past spring and summer knowing how hard it has been, for your patience, support and understanding. Through photographing your weddings, children, families and friends I have found such a sense of peace and happiness knowing that good days still surround us and will continue too. Thank you all so much for the cards and messages and prayers, it has meant the world to us and I am looking forward to all the new memories to come.

Here is in celebration to the life you lived, gave and shared with us.
