Shannon & Robert - Hockey Night in Canada E Session http://www.jukesphotography.com/blog/2016/2/shannon-robert---hockey-night-in-canada-e-session I never get to blog anymore!!, Seems like I shoot, I load pics and then onto the next portfolio!...
But this is my first ever engagement session with a hockey theme!! And it happened to coincide with the All Star game on the same weekend!  I loved the theme! As I used to spend hours every Sunday going to watch hockey games at the old civic.  The teams were part of the GM League, and my Dad knew most of the players, and funny enough that is the league Robert plays in.....So looking forward to spending Shannon & Roberts special day with them!....

the Roza Family http://www.jukesphotography.com/blog/2014/12/the-roza-family I've been shooting the Roza family since both boys were born....and this Christmas getting to see how much bigger they're getting brings me the joy of the season.  Family portraits are such an important part of family. A portrait is a timeless asset that grows in meaning and value as time passes. As days roll into years and then years become decades, a family changes. A family bond documented and cherished for futures to come is why I love what I get to do!!.....

Laura Lee and family http://www.jukesphotography.com/blog/2014/11/laura-lee-and-family I've spent my fall shooting clients I've had in the past..this one is special for me because it's an addition of a grandchild, marking four generations!!......how special it is for me to see the four generations together marking a moment to leave a legacy.......knowing where you've come from is the foundation and the family you're surrounded by, only can strengthen one's own self being.........one lucky man to have those generations in his life!

Hollett-Boyd family & Liam's first birthday!!! http://www.jukesphotography.com/blog/2014/11/hollett-boyd-family-liams-first-birthday I love when I get to see the bride and grooms I have before!! Keeping up with their new families, is a real joy for me.  Seeing, and sharing in what I know for certain will be legacy pictures, handed down from generation to generation.  And this is why I continue to do what I do!!! and I LOVE IT!!!..

Hazelton Family http://www.jukesphotography.com/blog/2014/10/hazelton-family I've been doing a lot of shooting lately with families I've worked with before.  Not only does this give me a sense of pride, but also a cool inside look into seeing first hand kids getting older, and being given a chance to document it professionally.  Watching our children grow up is one of the best part of life, and so to be chosen to capture family time is precious.  A perfect fall day, a wee bit wet, and windy like an average fall day was the backdrop for the Hazelton's gathering....enjoy...

Terri Lynn & Mike's wedding http://www.jukesphotography.com/blog/2014/9/terri-lynn-mikes-wedding For those that know me closely, you'll know that I recently retired from booking weddings.  I just couldn't keep up with adding new weddings and doing portrait work for the brides and grooms I had the previous years who naturally wanted family portraits.  Being a wedding photographer allows you to share the most intimate day of people's lives, and I take that job very seriously.  I feel blessed to be the one that got to shoot this rare once in a lifetime opportunity!!  Terri Lynn and Mike knew exactly what they wanted in their day.  FUN, FUN and then MORE FUN!! and boy....did they do it!!  The entire day involved a setting where you could let your hair down and just have a great time.  The day called for rain, but we didn't see a drop (until after we were tucked inside the barn)  and even tho it recently had been cold, it was a perfect summer day!  Pictures are supposed to evoke emotions, and that is my goal each and every time I set out to do a job.   Enjoy this very quick sneak peak.......with more to follow....

Lynsey & Kevin's Engagement http://www.jukesphotography.com/blog/2014/8/lynsey-kevins-engagement Lynsey's family homestead was the Woodley Sawmill in Bowmanville.  A designated heritage site, the mill still operates and was the setting for Lynsey & Kevin's engagement shoot! Gorgeous lighting and some neat spots made for a variety of shots. I will never look at the running of the bulls again the same way, after attempting to do reflection shots on the pond only to be stared down by the resident bull to move on!! and move on we did, and thankfully so! I loved Lynsey's shirt, with the saying, "Every love story is beautiful, but ours is my favourite." and of course favourite is spelled the Canadian way!!! Congrats to this amazing Canadian Couple!!

Claudia & Greg's Wedding http://www.jukesphotography.com/blog/2014/7/claudia-gregs-wedding A perfect day in May was the setting for a celebration of love and family!!  Weather was warm but not hot, skies were blue and the ceremony at the church in Brooklin, and then formals at Parkwood with the reception at the Ajax Convention Centre was perfect!  Claudia & Greg were the epitome of fun, relaxed and enjoying every moment.  Hope they get to relive how they felt each time they look at their pictures!
