I LOVE 1st birthdays. It’s great celebrating a whole year of firsts. First time you take them home, first change, first feed, first burp, first smile, first tooth, first steps and especially the first time they sleep for more than 3 hrs straight! Emme was super happy celebrating with all of her special family and friends. Mom and Dad definitely made sure everyone was filled with good food and fun. I mean, what’s not to like about making your own caramel apples with fancy toppings?!? Oh yeah, and having a whole cake for yourself to cram your little hands into ain’t too bad either. I knew she was fully enjoying herself after hearing ‘mmMMMmm’ sounds after every finger lick. Emme, live it up. Happy Birthday!!!

akfam6akfam1akfam15akfam16akfam8akfam9akfam5akfam2akfam7akfam12 It’s been a few years since I’ve had the privilege to photograph daring duo of Aidan and Kian :) They’re still as energetic and full of life as I remember. This time around was a little more extra special with their grandparents celebrating 40 years of marriage! Wowzers!!! I’m not exactly sure what you’re supposed to get after 40 years, but I’m thinking it must be BIG. Maybe, it’s having life sized golden statues of yourselves or matching diamond encrusted WWF-ish belts…or maybe teaching classes to the masses about the secrets of thriving together. Or it could simply be giving each other high fives for all of the hard WORK and looking forward to many more years together. Whatever it may be, a lot of celebration is in order. Congratulations!

Grandparents and grand kids playing together on a warm sunny spring day is…. pure magic.

sfl1sfl5sfl6sfl11sfl3sfl12sfl10sfl14 So awesome to see old friends with a brand new edition in the family! This fabulous young couple have been living an amazing new life in Hong Kong. I was privileged to capture some memories during their visit back to Toronto. Sam and Fiona were looking forward to a more ‘spring-like’ type of weather here but instead experienced the same heat wave they’re used to:P Nonetheless, they still rocked it. Baby Lucas is an absolute sweet heart and a pro at loving the camera. Samfi, you’re amazing people and it was great witnessing you both now as amazing parents!!

It seems like just yesterday that I took photos of baby Luke, now he’s running circles around me and climbing better than some monkeys. He’s now a proud big brother to his baby sister Miah. Luke loves to take a break from his busy life to give her tons of cuddles and kisses. Syl and Gary couldn’t be happier…probably hoping she’ll help keep watch and report on all of Luke’s future climbing adventures.

So precious. Looking at baby Leah now, you wouldn’t suspect that she was delivered by daddy–at home!!! Yes, he should now and forever be referred to as SUPER DAD! I have no words. Well, except for the fact that my hubby would probably be on the ground, passed out:P He opted for being at the ‘head’ of the bed during both births–need I say more? But let’s not forget Helen a.k.a. Miraculous Momma, endured quite a unique delivery–a woman of immense strength.

Big sister Ema couldn’t be more proud and sweet. Her momma instincts have already kicked into high gear. Helen and John are amazing parents to the most beautiful girls. Ema just inherited a super cute bff. Sisters rule.
