This is what the best looks like in my life. If we can all be together at the beach just one day, I am happy. Almost all of my weekends since April have been spent preparing, shooting, loading, resting. It’s rare that I get to enjoy this much family time at the beach. I love all of it, so much. This is my best life.Sundridge Photographers Sundridge Photographers Sundridge Photographers Sundridge Photographers Hobbie Cat Portraits Ontario Sundridge Family Photographers Sundridge Family Photographers Sundridge Family Photographers Huntsville Family Photographers Huntsville Family Photographers Huntsville Family Photographers Huntsville Family Photographers Huntsville Family Photographers Huntsville Family Photographers Muskoka's Best Family Photographers Muskoka's Best Family Photographers Muskoka's Best Family Photographers Ontario Cottage Portraits Ontario Cottage Portraits Ontario Cottage Portraits Hobbie Cat Portraits Ontario Photojournalism Family Coverage Photojournalism Family Coverage Photojournalism Family Coverage Photojournalism Family Coverage Hobbie Cat Ontario Hobbie Cat Ontario Hobbie Cat Ontario Sunset Hobbie Cat Ontario

If you’re a beautiful yogini (Moksha Yoga in Thornhill) and a super-duper-enthusiastic canoe tripper (that’s the mild version) living life in Muskoka where would you have your engagement session? ‘A Chip truck‘ is the obvious answer. Kind of a no-brainer. After fries you head to the cottage and hop in the canoe – again, obvious. Not sure I need to say too much more about these beauties – filled with love and compassion for each other, shooting them was easy and felt natural. They are deep and dynamic and full of kindness. My entire family may have a couple-crush on them. Last night my little Charlie couldn’t take his eyes off her. Their destination wedding is coming up in just 2 weeks. More trees, more yoga, open water, all over 3 days of sweet celebrations!

There are a couple of families on my ‘must shoot’ list. Here’s one of them. I met Deb and Martyn through business and our little families have grown quickly together. There are just a few people beyond my family that I’ve maintained such a connection with. From photographing the birth of baby J last year, to quiet afternoons of tears and breastfeeding, to last-minute daycare pick-ups and trading homes just to get a full nights sleep Deb and her fam have become our chosen family. My C and her E are best buds – in fact when my Charlie saw me editing this family session last night he asked where I was? Why wasn’t he there? And told me promptly he wanted to “go there now and see Deb and Maaaawtin”. We love this family dearly and are so lucky to be a part of their lives. We’ve been planning this family shoot for ages and when they decided to go camping on Eagle Lake in South River, near Algonquin Park (as a general reference) we knew it was our opportunity.

Thank you to my NEW second shooter/assistant Myranda, who came out with me, as she has to a number of sessions this season. I’m so proud of the progress she’s making. A few of these shots are hers and I’m thrilled to be including them here.

Love to you Deb and Mawtin!South River Ontario Family Photographers

Muskoka’s Cottage Country is where family dreams are made of, where young couples raise their sweet summer families and where those kids eventually come to play and be married. This is the case with Sarah and Adam.

There is a long driveway at the end of a winding dirt road, on the far side of town. They have an old cottage, a new boathouse, and an antique cedar boat. There is a long history and shared property…and of course they will have their wedding here. In true Muskoka style their wedding day will be a mix of old family history, a rustic and romantic outdoor ceremony and a beautiful reception at the Muskoka Bay Club. This was a morning full of sweet and awkward giggles, some beer – but never enough, and a little bit of ‘making out in a field’. Loved photographing these two beauties.

This is a huge and very personal post dedicated to Julie, Paul, Anna and Chris. I love you sweet and funny Beatty/Hartman family. If you follow the blog you know I love Ontario’s cottage country. Well, this cottage is a significant part of that. Aside from my family’s cottage – next door, this is the place where my dreams are made of. It’s where part of my childhood lives. It’s where my oldest friends grew up and now where they’re raising their families. So romantic, I can hardly stand it. (P.S. big brother ‘L’ was not as thrilled with my camera work as his little sister. I kept my distance but do love him equally. He’s a tough little nut to crack…even after four years…)Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013 Muskoka Family Photographers, 2013
