Mama Bear

Miss Meaghan and Dan are so excited to be expecting Cohen in September.  This little guy will be the first grandchild for my sister, Deb.  She and hubby Dave are over the moon excited!  As are Cathy and Jim (Dan’s parents).  This little man will certainly be fussed over.

Mom’s Deb and Cathy recently threw a beautiful shower for baby Cohen.  Deb baked for weeks and Cathy’s decor was adorable.  Everyone had a wonderful time showering this new family with love and gifts.  I think he has enough outfits for every day of his first year plus!

Here are a few pics from the shower.

And baby makes 3

I’ve known Greg since he was a few days old.  So when he and his beautiful wife, Kat, asked if I would take their maternity pics I was honoured.  When they suggested we take them at a winery I said … “why not!?”  Trius Winery is beautiful, friendly, and where Greg works.  And the results are amazing!

But keep scrolling because not long after I got a call to capture their brand new baby boy, Gideon.  And he is ADORABLE!  He was a joy to snuggle and to photograph.  He’s a good mix of both mom & dad and just the sweetest little peanut.  Sigh …



and then ….


Family Camp 4


Where has the summer gone?!  I wanted to have this post up much sooner, but, life got really busy and before I knew it …. Fall fell.

Sunny skies was the forecast for the awesome week I got to spend working in the kitchen at Camp Crossroads at the end of August.  I will admit … I had NO IDEA what I was getting myself into when I volunteered.  You certainly can’t be a slacker in that kitchen, but Rita and Gord and everyone else there made the work fun.  And seeing the smiles on the faces of the families we were feeding made it more than worth it.

Camp Crossroads is a beautiful place in Muskoka, Ontario.  It was built out of love for kids by all of the Mennonite Brethren churches in Ontario and connects us all still.  Hopefully, it will continue for generations to come.

Beginning on Monday afternoon, families arrived and explored all that camp has to offer.  Throughout the week they made new friends, reconnected with old friends and enjoyed each other’s company as they played and worshipped and ate together.

Saturday morning I was privileged to witness the baptism of an amazing young man I have watched grow in stature and character.  I was truly honoured that he asked me to stay to share that morning with him and his family and it certainly was a perfect way to complete a week I will never forget.

And then just like that … it was time to leave for home!

Here are a few pictures from that week of the families enjoying the food, waterfront, chapels and many other wonderful activities available at our camp.

(If you were a Family Camp 4 attendee, Camp will be sending out a link for ALL the pictures from that week)



Thanks to Camp Crossroads and all the AMAZING families at Family Camp 4 for letting me capture some of your moments.  And thanks to Rita, Gord R., Nancy, Pat, Irmgard, Gord H., Justin, Josh and Grant for being such an amazing team all week!


FamilyChildren are such blessings.  And knowing the struggles Stef and BG went through to have these 2 miracles makes them that much more special.  So, on a very warm and sunny Sunday afternoon they took time to thank God for these little people and promised to raise them right.  Family and friends gave their support and joined in the prayers.

Grayson wasn’t so sure about the whole thing, but little Chloe took it all in stride (like the little lady she is).

And the best way to celebrate such an occasion is, of course, with food!  No surprise that the cake was the favourite part.

I was so honoured to be there and capture this special day.  Here are a few pics from the Christening.

Little Man


Maximus is 6 months already!  It’s feels like yesterday that I took his first portraits and now he’s crawling all over the place!  With his 2 little teeth and his sparkly blue eyes he’s quite the charmer.  And he loves his big sister, Lily.

So …. here’s the little man.



Baby makes 5!

I first met Rachael when she was a bridesmaid at in her brother’s and my niece’s wedding.  She had just given birth to her second adorable little boy.  I was so happy when she contacted me to do some family and maternity images for her.  She was a lovely bridesmaid and is an even lovelier mother-to-be!

Thank you for visiting Nancy B Photography Family!  I decided to get back into offering this type of photography when some of my wedding clients began having families and asking me to photograph them.  And I’m really enjoying the variety of it.

I still don’t have a brick and mortar studio so I shoot on location.  I can come to your home or we can meet at one of the beautiful locations all over our Niagara area.

And … in honour of my launch I am giving away a 16 x 20 print with one lucky client who books a session with me between now and March 31!   Names will be drawn from all the bookings and announced on Facebook April 1 so give me a call to book your spot.
