Today will be a dedication to them all (and to all you lovely readers out there expecting, who are new mothers/fathers, expanding mothers/fathers, aunts/uncles, grandmas/grandpas, and proud friends). I'm about to give you a whole whack of sources for mommys and babies. Sources for inspiration, creativity and purpose. Keep in mind that today I'm also paying homage to my country; everything you see here in this post is 100% Canadian. All tried, tested and true products/services from friends who I know do what they do very well.

Going to cover 2 sides of the country today and let's begin to where I am now. Right in Southern Ontario, or the Greater Toronto Area.
A few months ago, I had the immense pleasure of working with a hot up and coming photographer. Michelle Collis met me on a warm late summer day to help me be the pin-up girl I've always dreamed of becoming. The results were nothing short of a raging success. Not only did I have a blast, keeled over in laughs half the time with Michelle, I also got to see how a real photographer works. I felt at ease being her subject and thought, "wow, this woman is going places".
Take you today, guess what? Her business, well, its booming! Now who are her most popular clients and subjects? Families and children/babies. I think her talent speaks for itself. Please check out her Facebook Fan Page, her Website - Michelle Collis Photography.
Get ready to be taken to the beautiful west coast of Canada. To a picturesque part of our country fit for nature enthusiasts, adventure seekers and those who just wish to enjoy a few luxuries and relax. I'm talking about the Okanagan in majestic British Columbia. Well specifically a little town known as Vernon.

Camillia is a photog. She shoots it all! Weddings, engagements, boudoirs, family portraits, maternity, newborn, children, celebrities. Have you heard of the wildly talented recording artist Andrew Allen? You can bet my girl shot the cover for his album.
