Specializing in Wedding and Family Photography in Kingston, Ontario and Surrounding Areas
Earlier this spring, I met Brandi, Jeff and soon to be big sister, Lauren!! Not long after their maternity shoot, I was lucky enough to be able to meet the newest member of the Falardeau family. Meet Baby Joshua!! He is just 4 days old in these photos!! You can tell how much Lauren is in love with her new baby brother from these photos!! And of course, Mommy and Daddy are loving him as well. He’s a really sweet little guy and he’s joining a very loving family. Congratulations to you all and enjoy your sneak peeks!!
When I shot my first wedding, four years ago, I couldn’t have imagined that four years later I would have had the honour and privilege of documenting over 80 more.
2013 was a great year for Sarah Rouleau Photography. I took a huge leap, gambled on myself, and gave up my full time job as a daycare provider. It was scary, but exciting at the same time because I knew that I was going to be able to devote more time to what I love, my family and my photography. I learned a lot this year, was met and overcame new challenges and grew as a photographer.
This year was filled with lovely couples and even lovelier weddings. I was so lucky to be able to to work with so many wonderful couples, in so many wonderful locations. I shot in gorgeous vineyards in Prince Edward County, in beautiful backyards and farms, as well as the spectacular venues that Kingston has to offer. I was even lucky enough to shoot two amazing weddings in Jamaica!
Instead of doing the traditional “Best Of 2013″ list of photos, I chose my favourite image from each wedding that I shot this year and I’m so happy to be sharing them here with you. Each couple was unique and every wedding was special in it’s own way. When I look back at these photos, I am reminded of the amazing year that I had, and how thankful I am that each of these couples chose me to be a part of their most special day.
I have to thank those in my life that allow me to live my dream; my husband Scott and my boys, Liam and Owen for forgiving me for the countless hours I spend in my office editing, and all of the Saturdays during the summer that I wasn’t around, Lana and Maria for second shooting with me, and making each wedding that much more fun, and to Amanda who has spent so much time taking such good care of my boys when I wasn’t there to do it myself.
I can’t wait for this next wedding season to begin and to see what 2014 has to offer.
In my first full season of shooting weddings, I shot the gorgeous wedding of Melissa and Shane. Now, almost 4 years later, I visited their home again to photograph their first baby boy, Baby Emmett! He’s a big guy, weighing over 9 lbs when he was born, and is so cute!! I’m so happy for Melissa and Shane as their family is now growing and they’re embarking on a new chapter in their lives. Congratulations to the new Mommy and Daddy!!!
Looking for a perfect gift for expecting parents? A gift certificate for a newborn portrait session is a great present to give to new parents. The first few days of having a new baby at home go by so quickly, almost in a blur, so sometimes getting newborn photos done are the last thing on your mind. But the first few days of your baby’s life are so important and should be documented so that you can look back on them years from now, and remember how this little person completely changed your life. Amanda and Andrew’s friends gave them the gift of a newborn portrait session, and I had the pleasure of meeting the new addition to their family, Baby Madison. She was so good during the shoot, slept the whole time, and let us move her all over the place. She’s so beautiful and it was an honour for me to capture these moments for this growing family!
Brandi and Jeff’s family is about to expand by one, and Lauren is about to become a big sister. I met this sweet family, and took shots of them enjoying time together, reading and playing with toys. Then we ventured out into the very cold outside, and Brandi braved the icy cold wind and posed for some beautiful shots of her baby bump. It was a pleasure working with this growing family and I can’t wait to meet the new addition at the end of this month.
Meet Baby Ainsley!! Just 4 days old!! She was such a perfect angel during our shoot, she only woke up once for a changing and a little snack. She tolerated many wardrobe changes and being moved all over the place. She is such a sweet, adorable little girl, and since she was born during the 2014 Winter Olympics it only seemed fitting that she posed with her Olympic mittens on. Mommy and Daddy, Ashley and Derek are already amazing parents to this little girl, and it was an honour to capture these first moments of a baby’s life. Congratulations Mommy and Daddy and welcome to world Baby Ainsley! Enjoy your sneak peeks!
I joined Ashley and Derek and their fur babies at their home just over a week ago, to take maternity photos for Ashley who is due with a Valentine’s Baby Girl! I felt like I’d better get this blogged before this little girl makes her entrance into the world! Ashley and Derek were so relaxed and easy going, and so loving. And troopers to stand out in the cold for some great outdoor shots! I had such a good time during this shoot, I couldn’t stop laughing at their adorable dogs!! We had to include them in the shots as well, because after all, they are part of the family. I can’t wait to meet Baby V when she makes her appearance, and I have a feeling it’s going to sooner, rather than later! Enjoy your sneak peeks, Ashley and Derek!!
In September 2012, I shot the wedding of Courtney and Sean. Courtney bought her parents, Cathy and Jim, their own photo shoot with gift certificate. We met up the following Fall at the Ivy Lea Club in Lansdowne. Cathy and Jim are a sweet couple, and we had a lovely time strolling around the beautiful grounds of the Ivy Lea Club. Jim was a little hesitant at first, but I think he got into it after a few shots and the result are these beautiful photos of a wonderful couple. It was so nice to see the Cooper’s again and I hope we all get to work together again in the future!
Right at the end of 2013 I had the pleasure of visiting the Dash family and meeting their newest member. Meet Baby Jack!! I was supposed to meet him later in January, but he couldn’t wait for Christmas and made his entrance into the world earlier than expected. He’s only 11 days only in these photos. He’s so small and sweet!! His big sister, Benny, is happy to have her new little brother here, and was anxious to have her photo taken too! Mommy and Daddy, Missy and Richard are great parents, very calm and loving as you can see in their photos. I love doing newborn photos because I get to snuggle with these sweet little souls!! I’m a lucky girl!! Thank you to the Dash family for allowing me to document this amazing time in your lives. Enjoy your sneak peeks!!
In February of 2012, I shot Joannah and Josh’s wedding in Newfoundland, and this year, just after the ice storm in December I was meeting up with them again to take photos of their beautiful baby boy. Meet Baby Lachlan!! He’s a sweet little guy who loves being in his warm and snuggly polar bear suit! Thank you to Jo and Josh for allowing me document another huge milestone in your lives.
