sunday funday

Last Sunday the weather man was wrong once again, and thank goodness he was. Instead of gray skies and raindrops, Sunday was filled with temps in the 30’s and bright hot sunshine! Sunday funday was filled with four generations of Mueller/Kennedy women basking in the sun and dancing in the pool. Let’s hope the remainder of summer is filled with more days like this.

surprise shoot : happy father’s day

Meet Jessica, Jeremy and Oliver, a hip family of three. Jess and Oliver wanted to surprise Jeremy with a family photo shoot for father’s day, so we schemed a little and made it happen. It was surprisingly hot on father’s day this year so we stayed inside to keep cool. I had a blast photographing these guys, totally fun, totally laid back and obviously very cool, I mean what 18 month wears skinny.. Read More

jolie papeterie – couture wedding invitations

Back in April I had the pleasure of meeting Nicola and Stephane of Jolie Papeterie, a Toronto based boutique specializing in couture invitations.  It was a cold gray morning and the rain would not let up, but that didn’t deter this creative duo from heading out to share a cuppa joe with a complete stranger. We sat near the window gaining warmth through our lattes and chatted like old friends about the wedding.. Read More

it’s a girl!

Baby Peyton arrived on schedule at the end of February and she’s  simply adorable. See for yourself. A very special thank you goes out to my extraordinary assistant (Nancy) whom without this shoot would not have been successful.

miami to serbia with love

She calls him “cookie” and he calls her babe, I call them perfectly in love. Margaret and I rowed together in college (Go Hoos!) and rowing is what brought Margaret and Boban together, they worked along side one another as rowing coaches for the University of Miami. They have both moved on and they’ve done so together creating an adorable bungalow feel in their Miami Beach condo. Last weekend I escaped the cold.. Read More

scenes from my weekend: great Canadian ice fishing adventure

When in Rome right? Right. This past weekend we checked another “must do while living in Canada” off of or list, we went ice fishing. I must admit, this wasn’t my idea, in fact I was skeptical that I would enjoy it. My dear Caribbean born husband had the idea, and my dear friend Carolyn set the wheels in motion. I am happy to report three things: 1. the hut was VERY warm.. Read More

Chris and Jocelyn are expecting their first baby later this month, yay! As a matter of fact baby Bartram is due to make his/her appearance on February 27, I can hardly wait. Jocelyn, Chris, baby B and I bundled up and headed out into the snow for a a bit of belly fun. Despite the two feet of snow the temperature was surprising mild (good for all of us), so we were able..

scenes from my weekend : St. Lawrence Market

Being new to a city is fun, you can be a tourist in your own backyard. Since we’ve only been living in Toronto since October we’ve decided to start venturing out and crossing things off our to-do list. First up, St. Lawrence Market. St.Lawrence Market is a year-round indoor market that is bursting at the seams with delicious food, fresh cheese, organic meats and veggies, and a whole lot of fresh seafood. It’s.. Read More

a bicycle built for two…. and a half

I think Canada knows I’ve just moved back and is easing me in slowly. I couldn’t have asked for a better November, the weather has been great, and by great I mean I haven’t seen snow yet and the temperatures have been consistently above zero. I’m not naive though, I know what’s coming, but for now I’m enjoying every minute of sunshine and mild temps. Making the most out of the “good weather”.. Read More
