Hello friends!

This sums up how I felt about this day.  ELATED. My first spring session. Outside. Sun on face. Wind in hair. Coat abandoned. 

Processed with VSCOcam with c3 preset

New head shots for this young woman who happens to be in my favourite singing group KW GLEE. Thank you for a fantastic kick off to the 2014 outdoor photography season. Is that green I see…?

Much love and many thanks for coming to see me, 

Hilary xo

Having the studio this winter has been a dream. I have enjoyed every minute in this space. After a few weeks of shooting in my coat and directing space heaters at my clients the studio is swirling with heat, the sounds of the shutter and much laughter.

I am amazed by the talent and beauty that comes through my door. The dreams that live inside each of my clients are real. I am inspired by their passion. Their promise fuels me. This face soon to be on a newly released song.

Many thanks and much hope, 

Hilary xo

truly happy

Hello to everyone!
Now that the excitement of half time has come and gone I can get back to blogging….again!!

This is the third year I have photographed this family. It warms my heart to hear from them every fall. I called this post truly happy because this family is just that. Truly happy.

I always leave my sessions with them inspired in life and love. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for reminding me what life is about and for thinking of me once a year to photograph another year in your lives.

Much love,



What a lovely session Hilary. The father/son interaction is so fun and sweet!

Gorgeous family images! Love them all, so sweet and fun! His expression on the one with him jumping in between, adorable!

Oh that first picture is adorable!

Oh wow Hilary this is beautiful! These images are so real and fun and full of love! Fantastic work!

What a great set! The light is gorgeous! The family dynamics are beautifully captured!! Lovely, lovely images!!

so beautiful, love the light!

Seriously so so beautiful! Lovely use of light, so dreamy!


Awwwwwww Hilary! I’ve told you this before and I truly mean it….our “Hilary” photos are truly one of the most treasured things I own. When I look back to the first year and see how much smaller/younger Max is, it puts a big lump in my throat. We’re so grateful for, and love these little glimpses of our family that you capture for us. And for what it’s worth…Max never fusses about getting Hilary photos done – he looks forward to being able to goof around and ham it up for the camera! :-)

Hello to everyone!

There is nothing like a little Friday night blogging. Proud to say that I am not eating ketchup chips…yet.

I must say that I am pretty proud at my blogging record the last two weeks. I must have a blogging fairy somewhere….?!!

This is the second time that I have photographed these wonderful little girls. First time for Mom and Dad. We had been rained out a couple of times and finally we hit gold with the weather. I love how different each of the girls are. You can likely see from the photos what each of them are like. Thank you so much for very memorable afternoon. I sit here smiling. And remembering.

Much love,



Woh I love your blog posts, bookmarked!
