I’ve photographed this family more times than I can count. It’s a show every single time. And they’re having their fourth little one. What a team they’re raising. So proud to call them my friends.Muskoka Beach Photographer

I have approximately 1 million photos of our 10 day family trip to Potrero, Costa Rica this month (February 2013). I will start here with our Super Boys (in fact most of the photos I took are of our super boys + super boys in CR scenes). They had the time of their lives – when they weren’t aggravating each other. Here you will find them “Shrimp Sucking”…? You might want to do such a thing if you’re looking for free bait. To do this you find a wee bubbling hole in the sand at low tide, you give the gigantic home-made shrimp sucker to the super kids, and voila you are shrimp sucking. Jack is equipment supervisor and Charlie is the lead hand. They were a great team. Such an awesome memory to have.

And then Super Boy number two choses to abandon the job and play solo. A little by yourself beach time at sunset can’t be a bad thing. Portrero Costa Rica Photographer  Portrero Costa Rica Photographer  Portrero Costa Rica Photographer  Portrero Costa Rica Photographer

Such a contrast between our first meeting downtown Toronto and their wedding day at his parent’s Fishing Lodge on the Montreal River. It was a mini Destination Wedding (in Northern Ontario) and we loved it so much. For the first time in 2 years my hubby, Jay joined me in shooting a wedding. I knew if I was going to get him working again it better be for something pretty spectacular. Once wee baby Charlie arrived in January of 2011 Jay became a full time-working-stay-at-home-on-weekends dad. A wedding, on an island, in Northern Ontario, at a fishing lodge was just the ticket. It’s always such a pleasure to shoot over an entire weekend.

As I’ve mentioned before, Loni and Ben are sweet, kind and understated. They love being together in the most authentic way-a true friendship and it’s such a joy to experience. Loni is a city girl who’s becoming more and more curious about a northerner’s life and Ben, well…Ben is a diehard Northerner already, who happens to live and work in Toronto. Before I met Ben I was told about his dramatic love of his hometown, nature, wilderness, and the outdoors (if you know my hubby you now know why this was the event for him!). I was not lied to. Some would say I live in the North (Muskoka)…but no, not like this. There is so much more to experience in Northern Ontario and many fewer people. If you’ve been to Haileybury you know about the expansive fresh water lakes, epic fishing (Ben tried to trick Loni and I into fishing all afternoon once, weeks before the wedding), you know all about the massive rock cliffs, the spruce forests and (all along the way) each delicious chip truck!

This wedding day was all about their friendships, their loving families and supportive friends, and most of all their love of one another and the North. Married on an island, sleeping at Fishing Lodge and partying under a red and white circus tent. Such a great weekend!

Cheers to you, Loni and Ben. It was an honour attending and photographing your wedding day.

I have waited WAY too long to blog this awesome beach wedding party!

Meet the sweet and soulful couple, Kristin and Jon. They found me by accident, we met when they were oh-so-sick, and it was love at second sight (I think because they may not have remembered our first sicky meeting?). As it turned out we knew a number of mutual Midland peeps and once they found out I was shooting for Jon…”Jonny Main”, they were thrilled. Everyone loves Jon. Not only do Jon and I have a collection of Midland friends in common but his Gram is from Sunny Sundridge, where I live. Finding K and J was meant to be. I just knew it!

This wedding day was nuts, amazing nuts.

Kristin was the most smiley-smiling bride I had ever seen. Ever. And brides are happy people as a rule. No one, however, has been more obviously-expressively-deliriously happy than Ms. Kristin. It was a perfect start (at the Charters Inn) to a Georgian Bay Wedding day.

It was a wedding at the beach, the family cottage in fact, overlooking the bay with a collection of curious kayaking onlookers. Jon’s dad married them, Jon’s mom toasted them and we all celebrated their union. From the beach, to the bridge, onto the tandem bike and a swinging rope, then deep into the sparking forest we ventured. It was my dream wedding afternoon, not gonna lie. I poked around in bare feet all day. MY DREAM WEDDING!

And then we danced. We danced all night at the brand new Midland Cultural Centre. Everyone danced. Jon and Kristin lead the pack through song after song. I couldn’t believe it, no breaks. Then Kristin drank tequila, her friends drank tequila, and then they all danced some more.

Big fat cheers to Kristin, Jon and their delightful families for celebrating love in the most memorable way I can think of.

Thanks to my invaluable and talented second shooter, Mr. Dave Sloan. Last year, 2012 would not have been the same without you.

Oh, these gorgeous island hopping Presse’s. What a way to spend an afternoon photographing a family. SERI-OUS-LEEEE! (if you have an island, call me, I can totally work that angle). So, photographed this sky filled session Sunday night, on Georgian Bay, with the super friendly, very much in-family-love, Presse crew. Let’s not kid ourselves however, it was a bit of a Ben show (Ben is the short, pale, chunky one), and I loved every second of it. Ben is the same age as my Charlie. My heart get’s all melty and eyes all weepy when I get to photograph my son’s age-twin at a family session. This is a long one, but a fun one. Thank you, Presse’s. Cheers to you! click to enlarge and view…
