Suzanne and I started talking at an Etobicoke Mompreneurs event.  She runs a fantastic cleaning company called Bubbles and Squeak (if you found out about them on here, please let them know!).  We got talking and just a couple of weeks later, I was photographing the following event.

Suzanne and her sister, Jen organized a surprise birthday for their mom Janus’ 70th.  As you can see from the photos, she was extremely surprised!  The event took place at The Old Mill Inn and Spa.


Jen’s family came all the way from Sackville, New Brunswick to surprise her.


This was Janus’ reaction to seeing them.

I love how this boy was peeking through the window to watch us do the family portraits.

Suzanne’s family likes to have fun.  Jen’s family was pretty thrilled to be able to surprise her mom.


Jack did one of the best photo bombs ever!
