The Wards are some of our closest friends and they are missionaries with Word of Life Fellowship Canada, working at the Word of Life Bible Institute. Since they are faith-supported this necessitates fairly frequent family portraits for their prayer cards. For their most recent family shoot we headed to Harrison Park here in Owen Sound and despite being a little chilly, we got some great pictures.

I was able to get some portraits during a playdate with some friends the other day. Abel, Marleigh and Isaac are so adorable and despite a few challenging moments, (it is amazing how silly a photographer will be to get a smile!) we were sucessful in getting some shots!

 

“Baby Roofie” as our son calls her, celebrated her first birthday a while back and I was privileged to take some portraits of her enjoying her first (and second) cupcake!

We did some back-to-school portraits for her equally adorable siblings too. It was a beautiful night in the park.

Love her first reaction…really Mom?

She was not impressed when Mom took the icing off her second cupcake🙂

Bobby – Good grief, look at that face!

We got to hang out with brothers Caleb & Isaiah in park here in Owen Sound. These two cuties did really well despite it being a sweltering day out! Definitely brothers when there is wrestling involved in getting pictures taken🙂

 

 

 

 

It was a pleasure to get some portraits for Madelyn and her family on the shore of Georgian Bay. It was a beautiful day and location with a beautiful baby girl!

 

So much fun to do another shoot for Miss Abbey. I have been privilaged to be able to do her portraits since she was born and this was my favourite by far! Big two-year-old girl now she was  having fun posing for the camera in her various outfits. Happy 2nd Birthday Abbey!

 

 

I had a great morning with Kate, her mom, Julianne and her grandma, Margaret. It was such a beautiful morning we headed outside but the sun was a little bright for Kate. We came back in and she contined to grin for her grandma while getting snuggles from Mom! Congratulations Julianne and Jordan on your beautiful daughter!
