Mini Shoot Sneak Peek I HMH PHOTOGRAPHY I Durham Region, Whitby, Maternity, Newborn, Family Photographer

We had a little mini session this week - and boy did we have fun - we proved once and for all "GIRLS DO PLAY HOCKEY - AND THEY LOOK PRETTY CUTE DOING IT!"

(click on photo to enlarge)

It has also been a long time since i did a mini session with my two wee men - can anyone tell me when they grew up - it seems that overnight they all of a sudden lost that "baby look!" I know they are supposed to do this but honest I wish that there was a pause button. for just a wee bit a least.

With Father's Day tomorrow I just wanted to take this opportunity to say to all the dad's out there - especially mine dad and my wonderful husband - we would not be the people we are today if it was not for wonderful dad's like you out there!

Till we chat again

Graduation and Coming of Age I HMH PHOTOGRAPHY I Durham Region, Whitby, Maternity, Newborn, Family, Graduation Photographer

Over the past few weeks I have had the opportunity to photograph the Confirmation Class from St. Bridget's Catholic School as well as a special photo for the Graduating Class.

How wonderful to be venturing into the Church Community as an Adult and how scary to be entering the world of High School! Do you remember being a "Minor Niner"? I can still feel the anxiety and apprehension this long after the fact.

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You're on your own.
And you know what you know. You are the guy who'll decide where to go - Dr. Seuss

Here are two of my favorite shots (have to say they strike a special cord in my heart!).

Generations I HMH PHOTOGRAPHY I Durham Region, Whitby, Maternity, Newborn, Family Photographer

Each generation goes further than the generation preceding it because it stands on the shoulders of that generation. You will have opportunities beyond anything we've ever known.
Ronald Reagan

Last weekend I was asked to come and capture 4 generations of strong beautiful women. I feel truly blessed to be a part of such a special day and all too often rare occasion.

I have been asked a number of times why generations photo are’s my favourite - simple - growing up i was blessed to be very close with my Mum, Granny, Gran and my Great Grandmother (Supergran), now with just my mother and one grandmother i find myself grasping at the threads of the past to remember stories to tell my boys as they get older. I am always telling my boys just how lucky they are to have known my granny and to still have my gran, two of my grandfather’s (granda and papa) and my husband’s grandmother (Great Grandma) to draw on for glimpses of the past.
Saying this – take this opportunity to capture those family photo’s that you have always thought about getting – the time is now!

HMH Photography will be offering a free 11x14 print with any session that involves generations of a family. Valid from June 1, 2009 - August 31, 2009.
