I had the pleasure of spending a beautiful spring morning with Ava!  She’s 3 years old and full of beans.  I am completely in love with her curls, and had a wonderful time watching them bounce around with her as she danced and ran!  We explored laneways and parks, had a little morning tea break, and a game of Simon Says.  It’s lovely when a photoshoot feels more like a playdate!

You’re off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So… get on your way!
