Oliver got pretty excited for Christmas this year and after last year’s ice storm debacle, he had every right to be. So, when Dana and I found him one night in bed, cuddled up with his little brother Duckie, wearing his Santa hat, it just made sense to document the moment with my camera. One […]

We always have some fun decorating our Christmas tree. It’s usually a two-step process over the course of a weekend: (1) we go and get our real tree and (2) we decorate it the following day. The last couple of years I’ve taken to capturing some of the moments with my trusty Fuji X-E2 because […]

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 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 […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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…

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

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 […]
