Brave. Steady. Determined. 4yo and she could swim like a fish.

This is Cliff. I don’t know his whole story but I feel like he’d tell me if I asked. What I do know is, this ‘thumbs up’ isn’t saying, ‘everything is perfect’ … he was demonstrating how he hitchhikes to BC and back to Toronto.
Every Saturday my daughter and her dad get up at the crack of dawn for their Daddy Daughter Donut Date. She lays out her clothes the night before so she can leave the lights dim and get ready for their outing. It’s their thing.
For years she’s been telling me about this nice old man she sees at Tim Horton’s. Sometimes she buys him a coffee. Sometimes she drops some coins in his cup. Every Christmas they give him a gift card, ‘because everyone deserves kindness (especially) at Christmas.’
That Saturday I asked if I could join her for their date so I could meet this man. I was honestly moved and had a tear in my eye when he called out her name. After all these Saturdays, she only just asked him his name.
The Belmond Villa San Michele. Exquisite.

I am honoured to be one of the photographers again this year.
Primping for the photo.
I don’t know this gentleman. But his reaction to me asking to take his photo reminded me of my dad. His wife was laughing at his immediate preparation for the photo to be taken. This was the ‘before’ photo he didn’t know I took.
We’ve always read before bed. It’s our winding down routine. Now she’s doing the reading. And, as she gets older, I look forward to the days when we sit on opposite ends of the couch, under a big heavy blanket, and read for hours.
Thanksgiving weekends in Grey Highlands. The colours are turning. A short drive and you’re surrounded by family. Walks. Talks. Chopping wood.
A perfect example of immersive family photography.
I took this photo when I was 9.
In grade 6, I signed up for Art Camp and chose to focus on Photography for an entire week. Instead of schoolwork, I would take pictures every single day. Winding my film in that canister bag. Exposing images onto magic photo paper and swishing it in chemicals.
It was amazing. Life changing.
On the very last day I asked all the campers in my cabin to sit on the stairs for a group photo.
