At our house Dana and I rotate years as to who gets to take Oliver out trick or treating and who gets to stay home to hand out candy. We haven’t had the best of weather the past couple of years with all the rain that has happened Hallowe’en night. It has been advantageous from […]
Oliver has always been intrigued with what is done to a pumpkin in order to make it a jack-o-lantern but I’d never say he was actually excited to do it. He didn’t want to get his hands dirty and he certainly didn’t want to feel the “guts” of the pumpkin. But something changed this year. […]
Oliver and I had a little fun making photographs of each other playing in the piles of leaves. It’s always a joy to get outside and play with Oliver in any capacity, but on this day, we really enjoyed ourselves a little too much. We were belly-laughing at how silly each other looked falling into […]
Another year and another trip to Downey’s Farm to play in their pumpkin patch. If you have been following this blog from the beginning (thank you), you know already that we use this time as a gauge to show us how big Oliver has gotten over the past year. Being with him every day, we […]
This afternoon was spent location scouting up in Caledon and Alton. I was shooting a wedding a few weeks later at the Alton Mill and wanted to get acquainted with the area. Oliver and Dana came along for the ride which quickly detoured for some ice cream, then for a wander in a forest we […]
Oliver went to the Bolton fall fair and won the wonderful creature he is holding in the photos at the bottom of this post. He named him Grolt, which Dana and I thought was a fantastic name for the newest member of our family. Cheers! t.
My cousin Jen married her fiancé Travis in September at the Miller Lash House in Toronto Ontario. This is my second cousin to get married this year! The wedding and ceremony were both gorgeous but unfortunately, the weather was a bit on the chilly side. With both the ceremony and the reception taking place outside, […]
Oliver started Grade One this year. It’s a big moment in any parents life because their son or daughter is now fully in the school system. Before you know it, he’ll be in high school (or so I’m told), life moves that quickly. So like any good parent (especially one who is a photographer), I […]
This video speaks for itself. Cheers! t.
Oliver gives us some insight as to why he doesn’t like seagulls. Cheers! t.
Wasaga Beach. You either love it (for the crowds; the cool beach atmosphere; the “strip;” and the loud music) or you hate it (for the crowds; the cool beach atmosphere; the “strip;” and the loud music). Fortunately for us, the Saturday that we picked to go to Wasaga Beach this year was short on pompous, […]
Oliver decided that soccer was his sport of choice this past summer. He had one game and one practice a week in the Brampton Youth Soccer Club league. He enjoyed playing and meeting new friends. Below are some photos I took of his last game. Cheers! t. When it was all over, Oliver and I […]
It’s no secret I love to barbecue. I’m not the best at it and I don’t nearly get to do it enough, but I do love to be in front of a grill. I also love to eat. And you all know I love to make photographs. So when a local BBQ store called BBQ’s […]
On his last day of school the kids were asked what they wanted to be when they grew up. Oliver went for the classic response (of course). Then Oliver started his summer vacation off right! Cheers! t.
Oliver goes back to school in a little less than a week. He’ll be starting grade one this year. It’s only fitting that, being late with these posts, I get this one up before next week. I took some photos of Oliver’s “moving up” ceremony that was held at his school. His kindergarten teachers held […]
Father’s Day was once again upon us. We spent the day on the water up at Dana’s parent’s place. it’s always so nice to be able to get out on the water again. It’s like we wait an entire year for just 3 months of nice enough weather. Of course, I wouldn’t trade summers in […]
Back in June we decided it was time to clear out some of the junk old stuff we had in the basement and have a yard sale. Oliver came up with the idea that he wanted to hold a Lemonade Stand at the same time. Dana created a little cheat sheet of what change would […]
Oliver’s favourite cousin Julia had her 1st Communion a little while back. Being the good Uncle I am, I brought my Fuji X-E2 and a couple of lenses and took some photos for her. Not being an overly religious family, it’s interesting to attend events like this and see what they are all about. Congratulations […]
As promised, here is a short video of Oliver tearing up the dance floor at Shelley and Daniel’s wedding reception. Cheers! t.
My cousin Shelley married her longtime boyfriend/fiancé 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 […]
Oliver has been really getting in to Skylanders lately. Some of his friends at school have them and his interest has really been peeked by the characters and how you can “upload” them into the game. So the Easter bunny was kind enough to bring him a couple of new characters. In the style of […]
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. […]
