Cakesmash ~ Talia | Toronto Child & Family Photographer

I first met this little beauty at Christmas time and was happy to see her again for her first birthday session. Thankfully she warmed up to me and we had a great time. Her cake is care of Sweetie Cake Bake Shop. It tasted devine! :)

Me & Mine | Toronto Portrait Photographer

We had some crazy snow fall yesturday (crazy for us, like 25cm). Road conditions were poor, blowing snow everywhere, it felt like it wouldn’t stop. I used my time inside wisely and decided to do some practice. It’s hard to practice with a 4-yr old who always wants to help and a 18-month old who just wants to be the center of attention…all the time. :) So I tried my hand at some self portraits.

I’ve seen a few blog posts this week from others talking about getting in front of the camera for a change or taking pictures of things we take for granted that might soon be gone. If you know me well, you know I HAAAATE being on the other side of the lens. I am more than content hiding being behind the camera and creating a photo than being the subject. But I love taking pics of my kids when they let me(who doesn’t!) They make me laugh, they make each other laugh and I have story upon story and iphone video after iphone video of their craziness.

So I took those blogs posts I read to heart and took some shots with them. And after looking at them I’m glad I did. Maybe it’ll be something I try to maintain for their sake. I could stare at their faces all day. I hope they like these someday and I hope it reminds them to do the same for their kids in the future.

Lily | Toronto Maternity Photography

There’s just something about a maternity session that I just love…

I wish I could show you more :-)

I’m always looking for new mamas to photograph. If you or someone you know is currently pregnant, you have until March 31, 2013 to take advantage of my maternity special!

Looking into 2013 | Toronto Maternity & Newborn Photographer

So another year is upon us. Some people make resolutions, vowing to change some part of their life—dieting, quitting smoking etc. I resolved a few years ago to stop making resolutions simply because I don’t keep them! :-) I have actually kept that one! But last year I set a couple goals for myself and my business. Nothing crazy and out of reach but ones that I knew I could attain. There were changes that I longed to see happen. I desired thing to be DIFFERENT. I truly believe this is the key. You need to really DESIRE for things to be different. Be tired enough of your situation, obstacles or whatever may be stopping you, take hold and desire change. In setting out my plan for 2013, I have taken a new direction that I believe will set me on a path of continued success.

No matter what your resolutions or goals are for this year, I want your journey to be a successful one so that at the end of 2013 you look back and say, “man, that was a mighty fine year”.

2012 Clients, thank you for letting me capture moments of your life for you that you will treasure. I can’t wait to work with you again!

Remember that your kind words and accolades are my best advertising. So when your BFF comes over and drools over that image from our session, go ahead…brag about your photographer :-)

Good things are coming for 2013. I look forward to sharing them with you!

Sometimes things don’t always go as planned and I wasn’t able to get this post up yesterday as I’d hoped. But everything is back on track and I can share my news with you. First off, I will be cleaning out my all my hard drives at the end of the month.

Spend $100 and receive an extra 8×10 gift print of the image of your choice!  My hard drives and computer will love you dearly if you take advantage of this! :-)

Secondly, since it’s December, the holidays are coming and this IS the season of giving why not give someone the gift of photography this year? Is your friend having a baby? Do you have frames in your home that desperately need some fantastic images to fill them? Let’s work together to create a gift card specifically suited for you, your loved ones or your besties :-) I’m happy to say that in 2013 there will be new packages offered and some of the regular ones offered with some minor changes and sessions fees will remain the unchanged! :-)
