Since I’m really excited about the imminent changing of the leaves and the onset of Fall colours, I thought I’d share with you a session from last year that I never did have a chance to share earlier! I met up with the Boate Family one chilly Fall evening to update their family portraits. The leaves last year took their time changing colours, but luckily there was SOMETHING for us to work with on that particular evening! 🙂 There’s just something about throwing around dead leaves that brings kids and adults alike so much JOY! 😛
Have you booked your Fall portraits yet? I know back to school time is always crazy for families and booking your portraits is the last thing on your mind, but I have only FOUR timeslots now remaining for outdoor family sessions for the Fall. I am providing a $200 discount on any of my packages to the next four clients to contact me to book those timeslots! This time of year is so popular because Christmas is right around the corner, and grandparents LOVE receiving pictures as gifts!
Interested in booking? Contact me today!
It’s been nearly a year since I met up with this fabulous family for a Fall Photo Session here in Barrie! The colours last year were late, but these guys were lucky to have some fall leaves to play in during their session! I love this time of year so much… warm, earthy colours; sweaters and jeans (if it ever cools down, lol), pumpkin spice lattes, turning on the fireplace for the first time! I do love summer, but I LOVE Autumn more!
I currently have 6 remaining timeslots available for Fall colours – and because I love these sessions SO MUCH I have decided to offer a limited time promotional $200 OFF ANY PACKAGE for those 6 sessions only! Interested? Mention this blog post when you email me to receive the promotional price! Please email me to book your session (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I have had the great privilege of watching this family grow since little Benny was still in his Mama’s belly… he is now TWO! I met up with this family last month to help document Benny’s second birthday as well as update their family portraits. What a crazy day that day was. Just before leaving for the session, we discovered my son’s beloved hamster, Speckles, had gone up to heaven, and during his very hasty but heartfelt funeral (lol) the sky began to darken as the clouds rolled in. Having already needed to reschedule our session once due to the threat of rain, there was no way we were going to let Mother Nature win again! So out we ventured, the temperature dropped and it began to drizzle, and like the troopers they all are, they all gave me their best throughout their session anyway! I love how this gallery turned out and cannot WAIT to see the wall art that we created together up on their walls!
Thanks to mom and dad for continuing to trust me to capture your life’s most precious memories! <3
At the beginning of the Summer, I met up with this gorgeous Mama, then expecting her second son, to help her photographically document her pregnancy. Not long later, she returned with sweet baby Ethan, who was an absolute DREAM to photograph! His big brother was so smitten with him, it was absolutely adorable and touching to watch the love that these three all had for one another. I am honoured to have the pleasure of documenting Ethan’s entire first year as he grows!
When new clients book a session with me, I am frequently asked “Just how many images come with the purchase of the Entire Gallery?” The answer is that the amount varies from session to session. But usually between 35-60 images per session… as you can see below, Ethan’s Mama ended up with A LOT of gorgeous images to help her remember this special time.
And now, here is this gorgeous Mama’s maternity session and Ethan’s newborn session! Enjoy!
I am SO BEHIND on blogging! I have been so busy with sessions and summer holidays that I’ve neglected blogging, yet again (surprise, surprise!) lol! We’re headed into the Fall months, which without fail, always brings me a tonne of families and cake smash sessions! Today, I wanted to share with you a super fun cake smash I did for a sweet little gal a few months back. She had so many amazing facial expressions that made shooting her session and editing her gallery quite entertaining!
If you are interested in booking a session, please use my Contact Page to inquire for more information. I have 8 outdoor family session spaces remaining for Fall and only a handful of other spots left for indoor availability. Drysdales Family Mini sessions completely booked up. Thank you everyone!

Back in June, I had the pleasure of meeting this lovely family. It was a beautiful, warm, sunny evening and the girls were so sweet and cooperative. I just loved being able to freeze so many sweet moments in time for them to look back on and treasure forever! I loved this session so much, and am excited to share it with you all today. 🙂
I am now fully booked for the remainder of the summer, but am accepting bookings in September and onwards. If you would like to book an evening golden hour session for the Fall, please contact me today, as availability is limited and spaces go quickly!
Wee Jacob’s parents came to visit me with their then 6-day-old bundle of joy back in May. I was SO HONOURED that they chose me to photograph this little miracle, since they lived quite a distance away, and baby Jacob was born via emergency C-Section. He was such an amazing baby to photograph, just so content, laid back, sleepy and sweet! His parents were completely taken with him, and it was very obvious in their family photos! My favourite part of the entire session was when I had everything I needed for my gallery, Jacob had been a rockstar and I was ready to gather him up off my beanbag and hand him back to Mom and Dad… but when I peeked behind my light, I found both Mom and Dad passed completely out (one on the couch, the other on the floor, lol) and so I decided to throw in some bonus material since I didn’t have the heart to wake any of them. 😉
Thank you Mom and Dad, for making the trek to my studio! It was a pleasure!
Expecting? I am now accepting newborn bookings with due dates from September to December – my busiest time of the year! Don’t delay booking if you know you would like a session! 🙂
When I first found out that Hunter was on the way (many months ago now) I was SO excited! His mom has been my BFF for about a billion years now and I have been so very fortunate to not only have photographically documented her teenage years (this may or may not be a good thing for her, lol) but I was also honoured to have been there to capture her wedding, first pregnancy, first newborn session, her first baby’s first birthday, and NOW her first son.
Baby Hunter was such a good baby for me! When he was awake, he flashed me the most adorable, cheeky smiles… but mostly he slept like an angel. I love how this session turned out, and couldn’t wait to share it with you all too!
I will be releasing the dates for my remaining August availability in the next few days (there are only 4 golden hour spots left!) so if you’d like one, now’s the time to contact me! Also, I can take 1 or 2 more newborns for August, and also am accepting newborn bookings into December at this time.
Now, enjoy baby Hunter and his lovely fam-jam!
This little Hudson wasn’t really all that “little”… Nearly 11 lbs of sweet, squishy, chubby newborn goodness – I met him in my Barrie Photography Studio when he was just days old. He was so very alert and happy, not really interested in sleeping, but content to just watch everything that was happening around him. I told Mom and Dad that I didn’t expect I would be able to get him to sleep (he was SO happy and alert!) which they were perfectly fine with, and then all of a sudden, he crashed hard and I was able to put him through nearly every pose in the book!
I absolutely loved meeting this family and working with their new little one. Thank you, Mom and Dad, for trusting me to capture this fleeting time in your life!
Interested in booking? Please contact me now to reserve your space. June and July are now fully booked, and I am accepting bookings for August and onwards! 🙂
I found Raindance Photography through another Facebook group. I checked out the work, and really liked it, so I then followed it. After my son was born, I knew I wanted pictures of him, (what mom doesn’t?!), so I just kept waiting and looking. W…

I am a firm believer in the importance of recommendation. I think that when someone, or a company (big or small) goes above and beyond your expectations you should not only tell them, but tell others! My husband and I had such a difficult time…

I first took my four children to Raindance Photography in 2011. I told Stephanie I didn’t need a group shot of them as they wouldn’t sit nicely together for more than two seconds anyway, just take individual shots. I couldn’t believe when I re…
