This summer I had the opportunity to photograph two of our very closest friends and their growing family. Baby Cox number two is due this September, and we are so excited to watch as these three become a family of four. Ben, Alicia, Elijah, we love you guys!

Earlier this year I had the pleasure to work on a styled shoot here in Muskoka with an incredible group of women. It was such a great experience to see this vision come to life, and I am so excited to finally share the images. To see more from these ladies or to get in touch, you may follow their links below.

When one your best and oldest friends is due just over two weeks after you, you jump at the chance to capture her and her husband in one of the most exciting seasons of their lives. Leah and Peter, you two are such a gift to Jake and I. We could not be more grateful to have you in our lives. Baby Z, you are so loved and I can hardly wait to meet you!

Last month, Jacob and I took off to Hawaii for a much appreciated ‘babymoon’. We stayed on the north shore in Princeville, completed a few incredible hikes, took a helicopter tour, snorkelled right off of nearby beaches, AND logged some serious time by the pool. We are so thankful to have been able to spend a week on the beautiful island of Kauai, and cannot say enough about the entire trip. We can hardly wait to return someday down the road, next time with our little one in tow!

Letters & Leaves Workshop

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to photograph Letters & Leaves, a creative workshop taught by Jessy Beck and Danielle Aitken in collaboration with Amy Marcelli. These women are not only talented artists and designers, but also great friends that I feel blessed to know! Along with beautiful calligraphy and floral design as the focus of the workshop, the afternoon was filled with meaningful conversation, new connections, and tasty food. I can’t wait for future workshops like this to come, as well as for another little project that’s in the works – it’s going to be a good one!
