Vosburgh 4 Generation photography
*professional lifestyle photographer*

I was contacted by Anne-Marie about 3 weeks ago about doing an 4 generation shoot including her mother, daughter and grand-daughter.
We met at the Trout ponds in Waterford, On. and proceeded from there.
Here are some of my favorites from this fun session!

Chesworth 2nd Anniversary Project
*professional lifestyle photographer*

2 years ago I made a plan with the new Mr.& Mrs. Chesworth to photograph them in a photograph for 5 years, every wedding anniversary.
This was year two and so far the plan is working perfectly.
Here are some samples of the sessions photos.

Mothers Day Mini Session
*Waterford Lifestyle Photographer*

For mothers day this year I offered a limited amount of sessions for moms and kids.
This is Tanya and her daughter.

Live Birth Session

Live Birth Session
(professional lifestyle photographer)

I approached a young lady about an ad she had put out regarding a photography position photographing the birth of her first child.
I went on call 1 week prior to the delivery day and then called in 4 hours before the little one was born.
I photographed all the small details, took black and white photography as well as color and captured the families reaction to their new family member.

Happy New Year!

2016 proved to be a huge success! I met many new people, gained a few new friends along the way, I was given so many cool opportunities to show my true creativity,I got some great reviews and had many return clients.
I would say 2016's biggest accomplishment was being published in 6 magazines throughout the year.
2017 is looking to be just as great with returning clients booked already, new promising couples, so many cool ideas for those of you looking for original creative photography and of course the new addition to my boudoir business with an indoor boudoir studio in Waterford,On.
Cheers to you and happy new year!!!

Halloween 2016

October 2016
*professional lifestyle photographer *

Every Halloween I offer a couple session spots for really cool Halloween photography.
This year it was a mother with two daughters who were portraying the walking dead.

Using a location I hunted for, for perfect scenery and lighting we spent an hour literally acting out the walking dead for my camera.

After the shoot was finished I worked my magic editing and making the photos come alive.
These are my favorites from this awesome session!

Atkins Maternity Photo Shoot

June 2016
*Long Point Lifestyle Photographer*

Location;  Long Point, Ontario     Time; 7pm   
Subject; Maternity

This photo shoot was a very rushed one as my client was very pregnant with child number 3.
She is a close friend of mine whom I have been photographing for many many years, yet this was a first for us.
She brought along her family for photos as well and some support getting up and down.
These are my absolute favorite shots of the morning.

1st Anniversary Photo Shoot with the Chesworth's

Any given chance to photograph something new and fun I always jump on it because I love challenges. No great photographer ever was made by not taking chances.

This photo shoot was located in my hometown of Waterford, On. I took them to a little spot by our beautiful pond and they agreed immediately that they loved the location. I came back out the next night about an hour before the session and set up the backdrop and set the scene.

Nothing is better than hearing your client exclaim over and over how much they love it all.
The photo shoot went amazing, we even took a few photos away from the scene out by the pond and even out in a bit of a meadow.

Here are my favorite images of the photo shoot.

Mum & Me - Belina

May 2016
** Brantford, On. Lifestyle Photographer **

I was so very excited to photograph this mother and daughter. It wasn't my first time photographing the mother Lacey, but it was my first time photographing her daughter Natalia
She was amazing to work with, so natural in front of the camera.
We stopped in two locations outside Brantford, one was an old rail trail and the last was my favorite, a field of dandelions.
I absolutely want to do this photo shoot again! It was amazing, we all walked away with big smiles on our faces :)

Mommy & Me - Palmer
*Waterford Lifestyle Photographer*

I knew back at Christmas time I wanted to do something special for all of the mothers out there. I developed the Mommy & Me session for Mothers, daughters and grandmothers.
It was a smashing success! I am still booking dates for this session.
This is the Palmer mother and son. Both were super sweet and so much fun to work with.
The session was held at my home studio. She had mentioned in the consultation that she was interested in a cozy bedroom feel. So I built a sunny bedroom for the two of them.
These are my favorites from this neat little session.

Graduation Photos
*Guelph Lifestyle Photographer*

Today was such a nice change to my usual wedding and engagement sessions.
I had the opportunity to walk around with Colin a grad from Guelph.
We took advantage of the old buildings.
Such a pretty place!
