Have I told you I’m lucky? I’ve been pretty clear with the Universe about what I’m looking for, who I am, and the kind of work I want to produce. She’s delivered. I really love my job, like a lot. All of the lovers we’ve captured over the past year (and the one’s we’ll capture next year) have been perfect. If you’re one of them, I want to say “I love you! I’ve loved working with you, meeting you. I appreciate that you’re playful and kind and very cool, that each of your loves is unique, and that you’re willing to take risks…and giggle through the whole process.”

I feel like I’ve spent the last 48 hours rooting myself for a few upcoming Muskoka weddings (Alex & Nathan, Jon & Charlotte, Lindsey & Jamie, Melissa & Rick-marrying on Saturday, and Pam & Ken-on Sunday). This post in particular I’d like to share with you images of  Lindsey and Jamie who are to be married on August 22, on the beach. They are pretty much awesome. We shot for 4 hours and I was the only one yawning come 2pm (P.S. not out of boredom, oh no…these two have serious stamina!!!). We did it everywhere, so to speak. First the ponies, then the barn, then the field (the first field), then the forest (the first forest), then the gravel pit and the KOMATSU, then another field, then forest at their house, then to train tracks. On top of that they changed for every location.

Just one last thing, the eve prior we spent some time together about to shoot, drinking champagne, dreaming about the wedding, and planning the actual shooting day. It was lovely. Thanks J and L. Here is just a taste of their images, I could keep going…if you’re looking for more take a peek at the slideshow on smugmug.

All of our couples have made my summer! I’m feeling freshly inspired. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

{Family Portraits in Ottawa, Ontario, 1/3}

Last weekend I was running all over the place. Alas I caught the flu…which gives me lots of time to blog! But before that I was lucky enough to shoot a cousin’s family gathering. This group is spread from Ottawa to Montreal and wanted to gather representing all generations, all family combination, and all phases of the Lagace life. I love family photography especially when we can get a little creative. Happy people, cute babies, beautiful teenagers, sports cars, and interesting back drops are all keys to success. This was a little chaotic, I must admit. About 15 before we began shooting we almost changed locations…but I knew the SportPlex would be a great spot to create some interesting imagery. Then Grandpa, who went to pick up the beautiful Holly got a lost, then by the time everybody arrived we had just about 20 minutes until Dawn was to leave for work. Pure chaos…pure beautiful wonderful energizing chaos.

This was the first of a few shoots I was doing for the Lagace/Faithfull crowd…we’ll call this post one of three. I think I was shooting from about 4pm to 11pm. I had a great time and will heading back to Ottawa in July for and Engagement shoot in the Market.
