My cousin Shelley married her longtime boyfriend/fiancĂ© in a beautiful ceremony in midtown Toronto. The reception was held at Graydon Hall Manor in East Toronto. This was the perfect opportunity for us to get all dressed up and enjoy the day with our family. It was also the perfect day to make sure we got […]

Enjoying another great day at home, Oliver was looking mighty fine in his Spiderman mask. He’s just so adorable when he uses his imagination (and all those facial expressions). I can’t remember why he was wearing his straw hat while he was watching a video on the iPad, but it was a cute moment so […]

Oliver was expecting the Easter Bunny to bring him treats but he also got surprised with a few new Skylander toys. The Easter Bunny even stopped at Grandma and Grandpa’s house and left a few goodies in their capable hands. I love his expression in the photos below as he’s opening the gifts. Oliver’s Grandma […]

One of our new favourite burger joints in downtown Brampton is The WORKS Gourmet Burger Bistro. Even for the non-red-meat-or-pork eaters, they have some great food. On this evening, Oliver got so into his dessert (served in a measuring cup which is totally cool), that he was rockin’ out to the tunes while he ate. […]

This is one of my favourite sets I’ve shot in a while. This is Oliver as his true self: In his PJ’s, with sunglasses and skull toque on, playing his construction paper guitar, rockin’ out to some good music. All of this of course took place in our living room, right in front of the […]

It’s the moments I get with Oliver like this one that I really cherish having captured with my camera. I had taken my Fuji X-E2 out to photograph a couple of flowers we had around the house and decided to see if I could get anything out of Oliver in the process. He usually can’t […]

Oliver and I made pancakes together like we typically do on Pancake Sunday. But after we were finished filling our bellies full of pancake-goodness, we decided to draw out some Star Wars vehicles. Here’s what we did: we used the trusty iPad to find some photos online of ships and vehicles from the Star Wars […]
