remembering steven | callie & steven’s maternity session

As many of you know, Brian’s brother, Steven, tragically died very unexpectedly a little over a month ago. During the week following Steven’s passing, we spent a lot of time looking through old photos we’d taken of him as we were tasked with providing photos for his memorial service. As we were looking through so many sessions where Steven made an appearance in our images, we came across these portraits we captured of him with his beautiful wife, Callie, about a month before their son Simon was born. We’d only just discovered we were pregnant with Avonlea one day before taking these photos, and with all of the major life-changes that ensued for us following this session, we never actually got around to posting these photos! But we feel like the world just needs to see them, so we’re posting them now. Gosh, we miss Steven… He was such an amazing soul, redeemed by Christ as was abundantly evident through his life! We hope that posting some of these images every now and again will remind many of us to cherish each moment we are blessed to have with our loved ones. Our tomorrows are never promised…

Please continue to keep our family in your thoughts and prayers, especially Steven’s wife and son, Callie and Simon (1 year old). We praise God for the 25 years Steven’s family was given with him, and we look forward to the day when we’ll see him again.

daniel stowe botanical garden wedding | stoney + mary!

We had so much fun getting to know Stoney, Mary and their sweet family in the months leading up to their wedding! They kept their guest list short and sweet, just family and close friends. The intimate affair took place in the morning at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden, which is one of our very favorite venues because it’s where we were married ourselves;)The ceremony was proceeded by romantic photos of the newlyweds in the gorgeous gardens, as well as with Stoney’s children, the couple’s bridal party. The reception included brunch, cake and lots of quality time spent with each and every guest. The whole morning was a joy to have been a part of, from start  to finish!
