Christmas Studio sessions at Herakovic Photography!

Last weekend, at Herakovic Photography's new studio, we opened a mega can of Christmas here, did we ever have a blast! We photographed about 20 families, who came, smiled, laughed and threw snow around with reckless abandon!

We now have tons more space to work with in the new studio, and we definitely out it to good use! We invited families to bring cozy Christmas pjs, set up 6 Christmas trees, had a 10 gallon pail full of 'snow' and we let 'er rip! Thank goodness for shop vacs. We're certain we (and our clients!) will be finding snow around their house and in the dryer until Spring.

Here are some samplings of the fun we had with our lovely clients. Already, the wheels are turning for NEXT Christmas's portrait sessions and how we can go bigger and better!! #brainstorm!

New Life - an Ontario newborn photography session @ Herakovic Photography

Last week I had the pleasure of photographing a gorgeous newborn baby boy, just 11 days old in the new studio. Newborn Photography has really evolved in the past few years, and become a huge trend! It's something I enjoy immensely, but holding back from planting a million kisses on these babies is pretty tough! This little man is blessed to have a proud big sister who loves the heck out of him!

Here are a few shots from both of the in-studio segment as well as at their family home.

Stunning Stratford Ontario Fall Wedding! Jess and Sam Got Married!

It's hard to believe that Jess and Sam's wedding has come and gone. I've been looking forward to it for A LONG TIME! Jess found me at one of the winter bridal shows in 2013 and we instantly hit it off. In all my 8 years photographing weddings, this was my first one in beautiful Stratford, Ontario. Its so breathtaking in the autumn season and every aspect, every detail of their wedding only added to the already-perfect day. The weather was incredible! If you ever get a chance to visit Stratford, you absolutely must make a day of it and shop, walk, and dine. Its so charming and a perfect place for a wedding! John J, Katie (on video!) and I had a blast together. It was another first for me personally to photograph such a large 'prop' in a shoot - the groom has the pipets transport truck ever and I actually got to get up in it and check it out! It's like a little house! :-D

We always feel so lucky to share a special day with our brides and grooms and this one was no exception. Both Jess and Sam were surrounded by an amazing group of people all day and you could feel the love everyone has for this awesome couple.

Here is a little collection of their fabulous day, and some of the magic we made together!
