We met up with Veniot family, Shane, Boyd and Letty, for a quick family picture session last weekend.  It was cold and windy, but the lake and clouds made a perfect backdrop.  I hope you enjoy your preview!

Long Term Care Patients, 2011

You may remember that we took pictures of the patients at Stuart Lake Hospital's Long Term Care Ward last December. It was such a big hit that we decided to return and do them again. A few of them were there last year but there were some new residents as well; it was lovely to see all of you! Thank you again and Happy Holidays!

Cambria and Max

The weather was cool and drizzly with a chance of snow but it held out for us to finally get some shots of Cambria and Max.  This was our first ever pet session and Max was a pro, only giving in to temptation to jump in the water a couple of times...but what did we expect, we took a water dog to the lake! 

Cambria, thank you so much for having us do your pictures, we had a great time!

R + M = Engaged!

I am so sorry this preview is so late, we have had terrible internet issues lately that hopefully will be fixed soon.  Over Thanksgiving we got the chance to meet up with the cutest couple who were up for anything...seriously, they climbed a tree for us!  Thanks again, guys!

It's hard to believe that summer vacation is over and school is just around the corner!  Mary Ann and I would like to thank all of our clients over the summer for letting us have the opportunity to photograph your special moments and we look forward to working with you in the future!

Family pictures are the perfect Christmas present for everyone on your list - and now that fall colour is starting to show in the trees, it's the perfect time to get them done!  We still have a few openings for the months of September and October but are booking up fast!  You can send us an email at bentbirchphotography@gmail.com or you can send me a message on Facebook.

Sweet Baby J

I got to do a solo shoot with Sam and Ricardo's little man when he was only 10 days old.  What a sweetie!  He wasn't too into sleeping or being naked but I think we got some adorable shots.  Here is your preview, I hope you love them!  I know I do!

Sam & Ricardo's Maternity Preview

 We met up with Sam and Ricardo on a very windy, cold July evening just 2 weeks from Baby J's due date.  Despite the frigid water, brief rain shower and voracious black flies we got some great shots!  Thanks you so much for letting us share in this special time, we can't wait to do newborn pictures in a couple of weeks!

Hannah and Casey

I am so glad that I got to meet Hannah's mom a couple of weeks ago as she talked Hannah into doing some maternity pictures with us!  Hannah and Casey are expecting their first baby in just under a week, a boy named Quincy, so we got these done just in time.  Thanks for having us out to your place, I hope you love your pictures as much as I do!

Early Sunday morning we met Fatima, Shadi and Ayaan for a spring session in their beautiful new house.  Ayaan is growing up so quickly and is absolutely adorable!  Here are a couple of my favourites from the day:

Thanks for the coffee, Fatima!  It was definately worth getting up early!

Family pictures

I finally talked Gary into doing family pictures before Christmas - the last one we had was an informal snapshot at my sister's wedding when our daughter was 2 and a half...she's now 8!  So on a chilly afternoon in December, Mary Ann and my family trecked out and snapped a few before we all froze.  Next time, I think we will do pictures in the fall, but these are great examples of how lovely winter pictures are!
