this week in pictures

As I previously mentioned, I'm back in Canada this week and I didn't waste a second before getting my schedule all filled up with both work and play. Before we left Madison, we had a picnic on the water with our friends Ian and Jenn, then alternated between relaxing and hurriedly packing for our road trip home.

It was great to arrive in Toronto to all kinds of friendly faces, like these gals (Lindsay and Amanda) who I've been lucky to know for over 15 years!

On Saturday, I met up with Claire and Jesse for their engagement session in Trinity-Bellwoods Park. What a pleasure it was to photograph these two and their love. I'm really looking forward to their Toronto wedding next month!

Saturday night, I went out with some friends under the light of the super moon

On Sunday, I had two beauty shoots with lovely ladies. First up, Sara and her friend Lex braved in sweltering heat so Sara could pose in the afternoon sun for me. Thanks for all of your help, ladies!

Then I headed to meet Katie, who was last in front of my camera over five years ago. It was such a treat to catch up with her and her sweet partner, Eric while doing my second beauty shoot of the day. Doesn't Katie have the most beautiful complexion?

After a family barbeque at my sister-in-law and friend Dan's place (minus Brian, who is currently in Spain), I trekked west to stay with my friends Roz and Kris for a few days. And with that, the summer of couch surfing begins!
