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 fiancĂ© 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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

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 […]

For Christmas, I found a little Lego digital camera for Oliver. It’s called the “nanoblock lego camera” and it has little Lego pieces that you can use to customize the camera. It doesn’t have a display on the back, nor does it have very good low light capabilities but it was a fun little surprise […]
