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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

Angry Bird’s Star Wars played a huge role in our family for quite some time. Oliver loved the game on the iPad so much and we’d slowly acquire new characters and figurines for him so he could…

Oliver didn’t really want his photo taken this day but he was being too cute (ok goofy) lying on the floor not to snap a few photos. So glad I did…

Oliver went through a phase recently where he wanted to create Play Doh models of all the characters he’s grown to know and love. On this particular day, he was creating models of Angry Birds Rio characters. It is so much fun to see your son be creative and even better to be able to […]

Does this photo really need a caption? I mean really this is just so awesome!

I’m sad to say that we don’t get to see our extended family as much as we’d like to. Life just gets so busy sometimes. I know it’s no excuse but it does make it hard. So when we heard that my cousins Shelley and Jen were planning a 65th birthday surprise “dinner” for my […]

It’s no secret that Oliver loves his treats. He doesn’t have more than the next kid but on some days, it feels like that’s all he’s eaten. So when Oliver’s mouth and lips turned blue from eating a lolly pop, and stayed blue for most of the day – I couldn’t help but make a […]

Oliver and I had a blast going to the Toronto International Autoshow a couple of years ago and we decided to make another trip this year. I am a sucker for looking at all the new models of vehicles they have out and Oliver loves to climb in and out of all the cars/trucks/SUVs he […]

Dana was out one afternoon and Oliver and I decided to goof around a bit (are you seeing a theme here?) with some props and the camera. We dressed up, we made silly faces and oh did we laugh! A great way to spend an afternoon. *note: most of the photos taken of me in […]

Oliver’s school had a Valentine’s Day dance for parents and their children. Oliver was super excited to go because his girlfriend Lily was going to be there. So, we went with Oliver and sure enough, things didn’t play out the way Oliver would have liked. Lily ended up not being able to make it and […]

As you can tell by now from this blog, Oliver and I goof around with the camera quite often. Whether it be one of our lazy Sunday mornings or another day, we like to make photographs of each other. On this day, we decided to take a couple photos of his Disney Infinity characters, Mr. […]

Dana is training to be an Interior Decorator and she really wanted to go to the Toronto Interior Design show this year. So we packed up the car and all three of us went to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre to check things out. It was great because the show had something for everyone. I […]
