A very good friend of mine, and former colleague, Kristle, recently wanted me to do some photos of her and her two adorable children at work in the Photo Studio. I told her I wasn’t going back, but duh, I’m a photographer outside of work too! She gave me free reign of everything, from: locations, editing style, posing, shooting style, etc. We had a very fun afternoon of trekking through burr-infested bushes, clearing out litter, trekking through a factory field of tall grasses and weeds, and playing Skylanders. These photos are of Kristle and Finn, aged 3; in a few weeks I get to photograph Kristle, Finn, and Miss Julia (aged 10) together, and greatly look forward to it! Enjoy the extreme cuteness and love between these two!

And last, but not least, what might be my favourite shot of the day…


Onwards and Upwards

29 06 2012

Two days ago, my little (I guess I have to stop calling her that) cousin graduated from grade 8. Next year: high school and bigger and better things. My little cousins have been through and seen so much in previous years. They have kept together as sisters, and stayed strong. It was a pleasure to help celebrate Ashley’s big day, and I loved every minute of it. I look forward to capturing Alison’s grade 12, and Rachel’s grade 8 graduations. Thanks for letting me be a part of your big day! Love, Carlie.

I’ve been on hiatus… again. But in lieu of the nice 30 degree weather we’ve been having lately, I managed to get out today and get some shots of a friend’s really cute son, Hunter.

Forsythe Family Photos

25 12 2011

Recently, my Uncle had asked me to take some photos of his family, so we arranged to take them yesterday afternoon before our annual Christmas dinner. The day started off nice and sunny, but by the time we were to leave, the sun obliged, and went away for a bit so I could have a nice overcast day to work with. It was nice getting back into portraits (and digital), after a long hiatus, consisting mainly of film and street photography, and working non-stop throughout the holiday season. I’m still in shock over how much my cousins have grown (and how much I haven’t). Overall, I’m very pleased with how these turned out.

Tanya and Family

I was asked to photograph Tanya’s family again, and here are the results… needless to say, I love it! The below photo is sort of an idea I’ve had for a year waiting to use it on Tanya, Kevin, and the kids. I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. Props go out to my colleague Peter for helping edit several photos!

Families 2008-2009

11 03 2010

I love photographing families. I mean, I really love photographing families (and kids!), but especially when it comes to my best friend, Mike’s family. This is his sister and her family. They are amazing people, so cute and photogenic.
