Maureen’s family – MPH Photography – Toronto

February 26th, 2014

I love repeat clients and I was so happy to see Maureen and Ervin and their boys Nicholas and Andrew again. It’s been a few years since I’ve photographed them and the boys were tall then but now they are like skyscrapers,lol. This is their sneak peek from 3 years ago http://mphphotography.net/blog/2011/07/maureen-and-ervin-and-their-boys-mph-photography-toronto/

I love this family, they are so sweet and polite and lovely to work with, the boys always make me laugh. I remember our last photo shoot at Edwards gardens and it was a very hot day, well this time Maureen wanted to do a session in the snow and I couldn’t be happier. I think its great when clients want to do something different and they brave the cold and come out with cute coats and mitts and you can bet there will be alot less people to shoot around because it is winter,lol.

We had alot of fun last time, but don’t think it can compare because this time while they were all together posing for a family shot by the stables, a beautiful horse came up and put his head right beside them and even stuck their tongue out for a shot (2nd last shot posted below), its definitely one of my most favourite shots ever now.  I posted it on facebook, and a friend commented saying that the horse must be american, as the Canadian women’s hockey team just won gold in over time against the US, coming back from 2-0, it was the best game I’ve ever seen and made all of us Canadians proud.

The Canadian mitts were the best accessory as well, since the olympics just finished and you can see that this is a proud Canadian family. The red and black made for a wonderful combination and I think they all look so sharp.

It was cold out though, its been a very cold winter, more so than usual and so glad this family braved the cold to capture some great shots of them.

Thanks Herold family for coming back and doing another session with me, can’t believe how much your boys have grown and it was great seeing you all again. Here’s your sneak peek from our time together.

Nicola’s Winter maternity session – MPH Photography – Toronto

February 5th, 2014

This session was so much fun, and I absolutely love it when a client is willing to do anything or go anywhere for that beautiful shot, it always pays off and the client is always happy that I suggested doing something that normally isn’t done.

Of course, when you think about it, why would any pregnant woman who is just about to give birth want to trek out into the cold and snow with hardly any clothes on, well actually, only the last shot is the one where the client is covered in a material and stands there for about 5-10 mins and then quickly changes back into their warm winter clothes, so its not really all that bad. 5-10 mins of being cold will get you a shot like the one you will see below and I think its absolutely stunning and gorgeous and when people see this image in my client’s home they will be talking about it and ooh’ing and aah’ing over it, so it will definitely be worth it.

I met Nicola years ago and she is so sweet and such a lovely person, we liked her immediately and when I heard she was pregnant, I was so excited for her and even more excited when she hired me to do her maternity session and then that she was willing to go out in the snow and do whatever she had to do to get that one amazing shot, made me so very happy.

I will also be photographing their little baby girl once she gets here, and I can’t wait for that session either. For now, here’s Nicola and her hubby Dan as they wait for their baby to arrive.

Thanks Nicola and Dan for allowing us to capture this special time in your lives. We can’t wait to meet your precious little girl when she gets here.  Enjoy your sneak peek.

K & L’s headshots – MPH Photography – Toronto

January 15th, 2014

2 beautiful ladies, both wanting headshots and both willing to going outside in this the worse winter we’ve had in Toronto but in the end, we all had a blast and even though it was really really cold, we managed to find some warm spots and everyone agreed that it was the best idea to go outdoors for this session as nothing beats natural lighting and natural backgrounds.

I know both ladies were quite happy with the experience and the images and it made me happy that they were happy. It’s always a pleasure photographing clients who are excited and eager to do a session and who trust in your ideas and concepts and let you do what you think is best to get great shots.

It wasn’t hard photographing these two beauties and I love how the images turned out.

Thanks ladies, next time, hopefully it will be a little warmer outside,lol.

Jacklyne and Regan’s Engagement session – MPH Photography – Toronto

December 20th, 2013

These two lovebirds are so much fun, they are constantly laughing and joking with each other, its great to watch them interact with one another, I could just sit there and watch them all day, and think they should have their own reality tv show, I’d be hooked,lol.

We had a fun session and although it was cold, these two braved it out and we managed to get lovely shots of them together being themselves and just having fun.

We can’t wait to photograph their wedding on March 29th and I know it will be a day full of laughter and funny stories and good food. They are not only preparing for a wedding but at the same time opening up a new restaurant on March 1st called Irv’s Pub, near Carlton and Parliament and we can’t wait to go and try out the food and enjoy the friendly atmosphere that follows these two around to wherever they go.

I have no doubt that their marriage and their restaurant will be a tremendous success and we wish them all the happiness in the world as them embark on 2 new adventures in their lives.

Thanks for being such a fun couple, and we are so looking forward to photographing your wedding at the end of March. For now here is your sneak peek from your engagement session.

Georgina – Headshots – Lifestyle session – MPH Photography – Toronto

December 1st, 2013

I wish all my clients could be like Georgina. What a woman!! She’s smart and confident and poised and classy. She knows what she wants and goes and gets it. She’s been all over the world and now spends her time helping and volunteering and just giving of herself.

She wanted some nice shots of herself and I’m just beyond thrilled with the images we captured. It was getting cold out and yet we found a day where the weather wasn’t too bad and we went to the beach and had one of the best sessions I’ve had this year.

She looked great in every shot, and with every outfit change, it just got better. Her confidence shows through the images and you can see that she’s beautiful inside and out as her spirit smiles through these images.

No matter what age you are, I think you should celebrate yourself, get your hair and makeup done and get a new outfit and do a photo shoot to commemorate this time in your life and the beauty that’s inside of you. Its great to have images like this not only for yourself but for your family so they can admire and sit and stare at them and enjoy them as well. Doesn’t every woman deserve this?

If looking at these images makes you want to do a photo shoot then definitely contact me and we’ll set up a session for you too and you too can show off the beautiful person that you are and celebrate yourself. Do it by yourself, or do it with friends, and that way you can all remember how much fun you had and at the end will have beautiful images to take home with you.

Georgina, thanks for being the beautiful person that you are and for being my beautiful subject for the day.
