The Best Of 2017

2017 was a crazy year for me; there has been a lot of growth and change within myself and White Pine Imaging. I have met and worked with a lot of amazing people; I am so grateful for all the special life moments I was able to be apart of.

I had amazing time getting to know couples and photographing them during their engagement shoot. The engagement shoots took me all over exploring new places, from Ottawa to the Toronto Christmas market, from Bon Echo Provincial Park  to the Mackenzie King Estate in Quebec. Check out some of my favourite engagement photographs.

In addition to engagement shoots I had an amazing year photographing weddings.  Being able to be apart of a couples next chapter is beyond words, I feel so lucky to have a job where I get to photograph people in love on the best day of their life. This past year I felt especially lucky, I was able to capture not only clients wedding day but friends as well. Enjoy my favourite wedding day shots from this past year!

As much as I love weddings, and I do I LOVE weddings, I also really enjoy photographing families. Whether it is the beginning of a families story or a milestone, I really enjoy photographing those special moments. These three shoots from the few months haven't been blogged about yet, but I promise you will see blogs about them in the new year! Nevertheless here are some of my favourite family photos.

This past summer I took a two week vacation with my two best friends and traveled across the country in a small car as far West as Kelowna, BC. We made stops in Calgary, Banff, Jasper, and Edmonton; met new people and had so many new experiences. I was able to learn even more about my friends which I didn't know was even possible. We saw 5 provinces and I can honestly say those two weeks were the best of the year, by far my favourite trip to date. 

Traveling and exploring new places is something I love doing on my down time in between weddings and family shoots. These are some of my favourite shots from my personal work from this year, including my favourite shots from my recent trip out West.

This past year has been nothing but interesting. With all the people I have met and all the traveling I have done I am sad to see it come to an end but excited to see what 2018 brings.

I am so grateful for all the engagement shoots, maternity, newborn, family shoots, and weddings I was able to photograph in this past year. All the couples and families I have met have made my year amazing and I can't wait to see what's in store for the year to come. My clients make everything worth it. 

Thank you to everyone who made 2017 an amazing year and I look forward to new adventures and love stories I get to share next year!

Happy New year!
