As part of my yearly tradition, I once again visited Pingles Farm Market in Hampton, Ontario (just outside of Oshawa) for my annual Pumpkins at Pingles Farm Market photo opt.
Despite a strict no-dog policy, the farm allowed me to bring Táta after hours for some golden hour snaps! They turned out great — always such a picturesque backdrop.
This has been one of my favourite places every year to enjoy autumn. Not only can you pick up your perfect pumpkin, but they offer fresh fruits, backed good, wagon rides and a corn maze.
This year, I am grateful to have had the opportunity to bring Táta for these annual photos. Also, congratulations to Pingles Farm Maket on celebrating 30 successful years in our community!

We welcomed October at Stroud’s Farm this weekend! It’s hard to find a dog-friendly farm, but Cindy at Stroud’s Farms allowed us to take some pictures with Táta — so thank you for that!
Stroud’s Farm is a great place for Whitby and Ajax residents especially to snatch up their pumpkins. The farm’s storefront can be found at just west of Lakeridge Road on the south side of Kingston Road. They have a beautiful selection of soon-to-be jack-o-lanterns on display at the front of store — perfect for a fall photo! They also offer a selection of fresh fruits and vegetables, other foods and flowers.
Many thanks to Stroud’s Farm for helping us welcome this wonderful month of colour! It’s my favourite time of year!
Ajax Rotary Park — a great place to enjoy nature, get a view of the water, without the hassle of a long drive. And a nice way to spend a Friday evening!
Happy end-of-the-week to everyone! Tonight, we enjoyed a long walk through the park, met a cyclist who biked all the way from Kitchener and another doggie friend who could have been Táta’s cousin! A great start to the weekend, if I do say so myself!
Did I mention it also feels like autumn down by the water? LOVE IT!
Today was the first major snowfall of the season – a true winter wonderland at Greenwood Conservation Park in Ajax. The area has always been my favourite for photos, so I took a quick ride over to take some snow-infused photos.
We also hiked the trails and checked out some areas for biking. I think I may have also found some nearby hills for sledding!
Tonight, we are expecting 10-15 centimetres of snow. I am excited to see what the morning looks like dressed in white.
P.S. – It was really hard to take a mid-air photo with the timer. Here are some failed attempts!
Every year, I do a family holiday photo – most years, I’ve done it at home. But as we undergo basement renovations, we had to do this year’s outside.
Because fall still lingers, I aimed to find a place with evergreens. After a short scout, I decided to take the year’s Christmas card photos at Cullen Gardens (now known as Cullen Central Park) in Whitby.
We brought some props — and overall, I think they turned out quite seasonal!
