Merry Christmas!! | Toronto & GTA Family Photographer

I just want to take a quick minute amidst the hustle and bustle of everyone getting ready for the holidays to wish my clients a very Merry Christmas. It is always a joy to provide you with your images, seeing you post them on social media, or returning for a repeat session and seeing them framed in your home. :)

I hope that everyone stays safe this holiday season, eats alot and enjoys the company of loved ones. :) A few from this years Toronto holiday mini sessions…

…and from my family to yours :)

Belly to Baby ~ Michelle & Loralie | Toronto Maternity & Baby Photography

Let’s remember the summer for a minute…I know it’s not cold or feeling the least bit like winter (which is fine by me) but reminiscing about the hot summer days is always nice. That’s when I first worked with Michelle during her maternity session in my home studio. Our session was fun and Michelle was up for anything :)

Then sweet Loralie arrived but due to summer vacations and schedules, I didn’t get to meet her until she was 2 months old so we turned it into an family session. She gave me the best expressions with her adorable face! I look forward to working with the family again in the future :)

Newborn ~ Cadence | Thornhill & Toronto Newborn Photographer

The holiday season is upon us and it’s a good time as things wind down for me to catch up on the blog before 2015 comes to an end. Here’s Cadence at her studio session in Thornhill. I fell in love with her big brown eyes…soooo cute! Her big sister was the best assitant I’ve ever had. :-)

Maternity ~ Ashleigh | Toronto Maternity Session

Three words…FUN…FUN…FUN!! That’s all that comes to mind to describe this Toronto studio maternity session with these two. I had a blast with Ashleigh & Doug during their session! They are expecting twins and I couldn’t be happier for them. You guys are awesome and will make FANTASTIC parents!!

Maternity ~ Aussie | Toronto Studio Maternity Session

Aussie was one of my very first clients when I was starting out and allowed me to practice on her now 6-year old. She’s due with her second and remembered me. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…I love, love LOVE when my clients come back :) I feel very honored when they do. Stay tuned for images of baby to come :) Big sister was a pro in front of the lens!

Newborn ~ Hazel | Toronto Newborn Photography

Sometimes no matter how much I prepare for a newborn session, no matter how warm I have everything and no matter how many times mom feed baby…they just don’t sleep and we rebook for another day. And that’s totally fine! Hazel’s newborn session was a two-parter! She made me work for each pose and expression and I love the results.

Maternity ~ Brittany | Toronto Summer Maternity Session

I love repeat clients! Brittany and I couldn’t pass up on the fantastic weather we’ve had earlier in July so we hit the warm outdoors for her maternity session for baby #2. A beauty and a natural Brittany just glowed the entire time–even in the chilly water of the Don River! :) Oh of course little Ellery stole my attention away. I’m so excited to meet Baby #2 when they arrive!

Newborn ~ Marcus | Mississauga & Toronto Newborn Photography

Whenever I’m contacted for a newborn session, I always ask the parents “will you be involved in some photos as well?” Believe it or not, most moms say no, just the sibling or dad or newborn only. That makes me sad. When they arrive the day of the session, I ask again. Sometimes I still get no. Sometimes hesitation. This was how it went with Marcus’ mom. At the end of the session, I said, let me try just one shot with you, and we got this:

I loved it. Mom loved it.

To the new moms out there, BE ENCOURAGED. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL! Be in images with your newborn. They will only be this tiny once. Remember how they fit in your arms at this size, how they smelled, how you felt when you held them…

And then I will snap the picture :)

Newborn ~ Anthony | Milton & Mississauga Newborn Photography

Anthony made his debut in the world earlier this summer and I made my way to his Milton home for his in-home session. Many thanks to Sabrina and Michael for welcoming me in – despite their newborn tiredness! :-) We’ll be seeing more of Anthony and I can’t wait to watch him grow.

Maternity ~ Sabrina | Toronto & Mississauga Maternity and Newborn Photographer

Another gorgeous mama-to-be! I had a great time with Sabrina and her hubby during our Toronto maternity session. The wind was relentless when we stepped outdoors but I’m glad we were able to get a few. This little bundle is due to arrive in June (another summer baby!) and will be a member of my Grow with me program with sessions at 4 months, 9 months and 1 year old. I count it a total honour to be able to go through these milestones with each client I have. Can’t wait to meet this little one!!
