Little Simon was one of the sleepiest babies I have ever had the pleasure of photographing. I met him when he was only a few days old and already there was a sense that he had always been there, surrounded by so much love. 

These first precious moments; there is real magic in them. The new, the wonder, the unbelievable love - every family's flow is different and so unique to them. It takes my breath away to see the beauty in them finding their way together: finding their flow. 

There are times when I truly believe you can all hear me *sigh* :)

farewell 2016, you were a monster.

This is one of my favourite rituals. Some of my favourite photographs of 2016 paired with one of my favourite songs of the year. Choosing photographs is always heart-led, but deliberate; soulful photographs that tell a story. Oddly enough (maybe not), this is how I choose the song - a song that has me head over heels in love with it. This year it’s Donovan Woods’ “What They Mean”. You need him in your life --> {HE'S HERE}

2016 is a year unlike any I’ve experienced. It was a hard one. Do you agree? A monster. It seemed like the world turned on itself in so many awful ways and suffered loss, profoundly.

Very personally, it felt like my world went dark. In early 2016 I lost my dad. 12 years after the loss of my mom, my heart…and my compass…had taken a beating. 2016 became the year of healing and questioning…my world, my life, my path, and my work. In the wake of loss I wasn’t sure if I could put myself in the middle of all the joy and love that you share with me…and still see it the same way.

For a while, my path and my work were already set. Months of bookings were confirmed and I made the decision to surrender to my photography schedule as it was. In every other moment, I was a mom and a daughter. Only. And both of those women needed to heal.

In that early whirlwind of chaos the separation made sense, but I quickly realized how connected the photographer, the mom and the daughter were. We all needed healing. And in the same way you never know who will truly and unexpectedly show up when you’re down, photography was a lifeline, for all of us.

During a year when THE world and MY world could, at first glance, seem hopeless I was shown just how much light and love live in this world. I’m leaving 2016 behind a little worse for wear, but wiser, full of love and more thankful than ever. Every year I find it hard to express how grateful I am to the friends and clients of Heather Lynch Photography – this year…I can't begin to find the words.

So here it is. My love note. My endless thanks. My look back at the year and all of the love and trust you have honoured me with.

Thank-you.

Love,

Heather   {London Ontario Photographer}

Sweet baby Noelle. I was so excited when her Mama contacted me to say she was expecting. I've had the honour of photographing her big brother over the years and I couldn't wait to meet his baby sister.

Welcome, Noelle!

Oh, baby Emma and her beautiful family! Gorgeous natural light and a furry big sister who was the perfect combo of playful and protective, were just icing on the cake :)

amanda + shane | london ontario wedding photography

I can't gush enough about this gorgeous day. Family and friends from opposite sides of the planet came together in the most loving, authentic and supportive celebration of these two sweethearts. Love and tears (often my own) flowed freely...and isn't that the clue that you are in the midst of something truly heartfelt?

I'm over-the-moon for Amanda and Shane. And what an honour it was to be invited into such a magical, love-filled and happy space to capture their day.
