Newmarket Irish Dance Photographer | Newmarket Irish Dance Photos

Savannah

After seeing Cora, Lily, Erin, Claire and Brooklynn in recent blog posts, it should come as no surprise that my daughter is also an Irish dancer. Which makes me her Newmarket Irish dance photographer, on top of everything else ๐Ÿ˜‰

About a month ago, she moved up to the level where they graduate from the traditional school dresses (below), to the coveted sparkly dresses, also known as solo dresses.

Traditional school dress

I do like to photograph dancers with their hair down, because it shows SO much more movement in the photos when their hair is flowing around them. BUT it also makes it a bit more challenging, if you want the hair to flow a certain way – and the wind doesn’t always cooperate. (Or in my experience, the wind usually doesn’t cooperate.) That’s no exception for my daughter who has very, very long hair! However, she was excited to wear her first solo dress, so photos were of course required! Especially when your mom is a photographer ๐Ÿ˜‰

Savannah used to compete a lot wearing her hair down (well, pulled in a half-ponytail, so it wasn’t in her face) when she wore the school dress. Now when she competes in the solo dress, we tend to put her hair up. I wanted to have photos of what she actually looked like when competing, but at the same time didn’t really feel like doing her hair just for photos ๐Ÿ˜‰ The first competition we went to after she got her dress was down in Toledo, Ohio. After she competed (and did well!), we found a spot near our hotel and got to work on new photos!

When I’m shooting wedding photos, and I’m walking around with a bride and groom, I’m completely used to having people stare at us, or watch us, or tell the bride how beautiful she looks – my daughter however, not so used to that ๐Ÿ˜‰ PLUS it was right in the middle of the Toledo Pride Festival, so we saw lots of interesting characters, and they were all talking to Savannah as they walked by. Luckily, after a few minutes, she got used to it, and wasn’t phased at all by strangers talking to her. She loves to perform and be on stage, so having people watch her have her photo taken was no problem!

Around Toledo, there are some interesting sculptures. The one below was just behind us when we were shooting her photos, and Savannah decided she should have some photos done with the sculpture. (I may or may not have edited the sculpture to match the colours of her dress… and I may or may not have spent a lot of time editing out cars, pedestrians, and various street signs out of the background also… Worth the effort though I think!)

Barrie Irish Dance Photographer

Cora

Cora just competed at her first North American championships of Irish dance earlier this month! We had a ton of fun taking her Barrie Irish dance photos. Turns out, Cora has a lot of facial expressions, which made for quite the “Outtakes” folder ๐Ÿ˜‰Barrie Irish dance photos by Newmarket Irish dance photographer www.jnphotography.ca Barrie Irish dance photos by Newmarket Irish dance photographer www.jnphotography.ca

Richmond Hill Wedding Photographer | Summit Golf Club Wedding


Melissa & Andrew

How They Met

Melissa and Andrew were working at the same golf course in Guelph, the Cutten Club. At first, Andrew thought Melissa was “too loud” and didn’t really like her. So, Melissa decided that since he didn’t like her, she would ignore him and not pay him any attention. Turns out, Andrew got over that, as he asked Melissa out and they went on their first date to Woolwich Arms (also in Guelph) for dinner. Seven years later, he popped the question!

The Proposal

Andrew and Melissa have a cat names Kinsley. One night, she got outside and disappeared for 16 days. On the morning after she came back home, Melissa and Andrew were laying in bed, and Andrew reached into his bedside table to pull out the ring. He turned to Melissa and asked โ€œNow that our family is back together, will you marry me?โ€.

The Wedding

Melissa and Andrew got married on a sunny August day, at the Summit Golf Club in Richmond Hill. They chose to have a Summit Golf Club wedding, because Melissa’s father has been a member there for over 20 years. (Side note, my own father is also a member there! So I already knew the place quite well.)

The Ceremony

The wedding ceremony was held on the back patio, with the famous 18th hole in the background. Anyone who’s been to the Summit Golf Club has admired the view!

Newmarket Cake Smash Photographer


Star Wars Cake Smash, starring River!

Earlier, I posted a sneak peek blog post for River’s Star Wars cake smash (which I don’t normally do!) because his photos were SO cute. Well today’s the day where you get to see a few more!

It was SO hard to choose which photos to put in River’s Star Wars cake smash storyboard! I had it narrowed down to about 50, and that’s when it got tough. Comment below and tell me what you think!

Here are a few extra photos that didn’t make it into the storyboard, but I still love!

And before the cake smash, we did some quick family photos of the Star Wars ‘family’ in Yoda’s dagobah *cough* swamp *cough*
