newfoundland… represent!

Vaughn-1

so vaughn’s lying on a newfoundland flag, the brown thing underneath the flag is a beaver pelt, and his salt and pepper hat is lying close by. so no, this really could not have gotten any more newfoundland.

therefore, i had a solid laugh yesterday when i stumbled across this photo. i feel like he’s punching it and saying “newfoundland… represent.” even his little face looks so serious!

babies. hilarity!

much love,

Suz-1 Suz-2who wouldn’t want to start off a sunday morning with this little face?

seriously. suz (the beautiful momma pictured above!) is a good friend of mine & dru’s, and when she asked us to get together for a shoot with her little one i was in.

if i’m being honest, baby sessions are my favorite. who isn’t going to love a photo of a baby? and even in the madness i find those sessions really calming. is that weird? maybe its the oldest sister in me, or the old swim coach. i mean, hello… kiddy classes were the bomb. who else is going to say to me in awe, “wow, teacher! you swim like a dolphin… who swims like… like a mermaid!” now, while in reality that would probably look pretty messed up i still take it as a large compliment coming from a very shy three year old, and i laughed after that lesson for days. (thanks again grant!) seriously though, i say pass those sessions on.

on that note, the list of things to do/shoot when classes finally clues up is becoming endless. i love it.

much love,

birthday bree

B-3 B-4 B-5 B-6 B-8i put up a quick preview of bree up just a few weeks ago, but seeing as per how TODAY is her actual birthday… and how her mom is a dream client (who shares my love of black and whites, can you tell?) i figured it’s worth putting up another load of favorites. she’s too cute not to share!

much love, and the happiest of birthdays to this very happy little girl!

bree; one year old

Beauty-4 Beauty-5this little princess is turning one this week and i’m SO happy her parents asked me out to their beautiful home in pinchgut to do some photos. she was so pleasant, and i got such a kick at her throwing her head back and laughing at her parents and my attempt to keep her attention!

this is just a quick preview, there’s a load more favorites and smash the cake photos to follow! bree… your just too cute.

much love,

candace

playing catch up

KRA-1… and enjoying the snow day!

i love getting the chance to stay home, sit down, and start ticking things off to do lists. i’m already a few coffees and teas deep, and after having mailed the jamaica proofs yesterday (wooo! largest editing job to date for sure) i have a few family sessions left to clear up and then nothing but school to focus on.

i think february is going to fly faster than january too. we’re already about a week in, and after logging a hard week next week we have mid-term break – so, that means if i burrow my head under a blanket for a few days i might actually get to enjoy break and come back ready for march. YES.

running count until my time is my own… 71 days.

much (snowy) love,

candace

breakfast with the carey/macdonald family!

Olli-2-2 Olli-2-3 Olli-3 Olli-4 Olli-5 Olli-6

Olli-1 Olli-2i’ve pretty much known this family forever (suz who is a best friend of my aunts has probably been around since i’ve been a baby) and i was thrilled when they pitched the idea of their shoot with me! i mean, breakfast shoot? you just said my favorite word. (ps, its breakfast). sign me up now!

oli is such a sweetheart too, and has actually just became a big brother! i definitely can’t wait to meet jesse, and if he has even a bit of his brothers personality he’s going to be another total charmer.

on relatively the same note, it was surprising how much i enjoyed shooting indoors! its something families have been asking for more and more lately and after looking through more work by jenny jimenez i’m way more open to it. seriously – check out her work. its is like fine art fashion photography of regular people in their however-as-is homes and i love it.

hope you like!

much love,

candace
