I purposed, before the birth of my daughter, to be the kind of mom I'd long wanted to be. At all costs. Unbeknownst to her, my daughter had thrown me a challenge. I needed to use my God-given talents and life's passions to be productive while still working around her needs and her schedule. Here are some daily adventures and small successes.


Under wraps until Christmas - Montreal's South Shore child photog rive sud

So the annual "surprise" for my mom, grandma to 5 lovely littles (and not so littles). I say "surprise" because I figure once it's an annual thing, the surprising effect must ware off, no? No matter. She loves it.

Here's how it all played out this year...


Favorites - Montreal's South Shore family photog famille Rive-Sud

I'm allowed to have favorites. I mean, photographers aren't like parents. Parents aren't supposed to have favorites. (But some of you do...I know it's true. Don't look at me like that...)

So here are my favorites. For oh-so-many reasons.

Maybe they're my favorites because their eldest is my daughter's bestie for life. Or maybe it's because spending an afternoon with their youngest is more laughs than a set at YukYuk's or the Laugh Factory. It may be because their sweet middle child is the kindest, gentlest little boy you will ever (read: E-VERRR) meet.

Something magical can happen when you pop a little boy in the middle of a field. His curiosity makes that light in his eyes come even more alive.

I love photographing boys just this way.

Being photographed is hard work, well worth a sweet reward. ;)


Waiting on Christmas - Montreal's South Shore children photographer Rive-Sud

Do you remember, as a child, the excitement that came with waiting for Christmas to arrive? If only these two could bottle it. I'd buy it by the truckload. ♥

Merry Christmas to your and yours!
