Julie and Brian were married in February at the Old Mill Inn & Spa in Toronto. They did a fantastic job combining beautiful traditional wedding aspects with little hints of their love for the Dallas Cowboys. Their unique ceremony started with an opening prayer dedicated to the team, which had everyone laughing. Julie had promised the bridal party that they wouldn’t have to go outside in the cold, but I had other plans for them! We stayed close to the door and only brought out the people we needed for each image, so everyone else could stay warm while waiting for their turn – but I absolutely recommend doing at least a few outside photos no matter the weather on your wedding day :) Thanks to everyone for trusting me, and all the best to our newlyweds!

Loved Julie’s bouquet – a colourful arrangement with small hints of winter, including pinecones and silver.

The ladies looking classy, while the boys enjoy some pre-game drinks at the pub

Love this one from the top of the stairs looking down

A fun-filled reception, including the shoe game, and a hilarious (yet slightly incriminating) speech by the best man, whose wedding I photographed a few years ago. Thanks Matt and Hilary for passing my name along!

We snuck outside after dinner for some quick nighttime photos in the snow

Julie changed into her traditional red dress later in the evening and we captured a quiet moment in the bridal suite with the two of them.

Last week I had the pleasure of attending a little presentation by Dr. McCulloch and Dr. Sandilands, followed by a tour of their office in Pickering. I was surprised to learn the scope of issues and ailments they treat – a naturopathic doctor is a primary care giver, in the same way most of us think of our family doctors or GPs. The difference is in the treatment methods. One small example they gave, was rather than suggesting tylenol for your headache, they will ask questions and perhaps suggest various tests to get to the root cause of the headaches, in order to treat the underlying issue, rather than the symptoms of a bigger problem.

As I listened to them describe the number of issues associated with food sensitivities, and what a major role these sensitivities can play in your overall well-being, I was amazed, and thought about all the people I know that complain about various issues that could be related to the food they are eating!

Naturopathic health care is not covered by OHIP, but it is covered by many benefit plans. However, even if you’re like me and have no coverage – the financial costs are minimal compared to the benefits of improved health and wellness, receiving adequate time with your doctor so they can properly assess and monitor your condition, and knowing that the treatments don’t involve adding chemicals to your body that don’t belong there.

I squeezed in one extra special newborn session for sweet little Hanna before the holidays – she arrived a little earlier than expected, which I’m sure meant lots of baby snuggles and oohing and awwing for this family at Christmas. Older brother Max was one of the first sessions here at my home studio, and it’s amazing how much Hanna looks like a tinier version of Max as a baby. That means Hanna is destined for super-cuteness as well :)
