Little Miss T – 9 days old – Newborn session – MPH Photography – Toronto

September 25th, 2014

I always find it such an honour when I’m hired to photograph a newborn. I am overcome with joy that the parents want me to photograph their most precious thing in the world and this means so much to me.

Stefania and Nick welcomed me into their home and introduced me to their 9 day old little girl and immediately I fell in love. Babies are such miracles, tiny little people, she was perfect in every way and she was just such a joy to work with. She slept for pretty much the whole session and she seemed like she enjoyed herself and we even got a few smiles from her.

Talia’s parents, Nick and Stefania were so sweet and so excited about their newest addition to their family, and I could tell they loved their little girl with all their hearts. I think she will be one lucky little girl and will have a life full of love and I think her daddy is going to protected her and keep her safe and not let any boys go near her,lol.

It was a beautiful warm day and the sun was shining and the house was filled with love and joy and its always a pleasure to work in such an environment. We really enjoyed our time with this lovely family.

Thanks again Stefania and Nick for inviting us into your home and into your lives and choosing us to capture this special time. We look forward to watching Talia grow up and we hope you will call on us again when you need us.

Enjoy your sneak peek.

Four Seasons Hotel Toronto – MPH Photography – Toronto

August 4th, 2014

We had the lovely opportunity to photograph the executives at the Four Seasons hotel in Toronto head office. and it didn’t hurt that their offices are located in such beautiful surroundings so we decided to use what was available as backdrops and as you will see from the images, they have so many beautiful spots to photograph everyone in front of which made it even easier to photograph these beautiful people.

It was a pleasure working with each person and they were all a delight and lovely people. We really enjoyed our time photographing everyone and not only were we well taken care of during our time there but they made it fun and definitely one of the best headshot sessions we have ever done. They definitely make me want to stay at a Four Seasons hotel next time I go away if the way they treated us was any indication of how everyone acts at the Four Seasons, its definitely a first class company.

We hope everyone at the Four Seasons enjoyed their time with us as well. We are truly honoured and humbled that they asked us to photograph them and want to thank all of them for being so wonderful and lovely to work with.

Baby Ella – Newborn – MPH Photography – Toronto

May 8th, 2014

This was a special session and one that the parents and I waited for and had to postpone several times but in the end everything came together and we had a lovely session with baby Ella and her parents Nicola and Dan.

I had photographed Nicola during her pregnancy  http://mphphotography.net/blog/2014/02/nicolas-winter-maternity-session-mph-photography-toronto/and know how excited her and Dan were as they waited for little Ella’s arrival.

We had planned for a newborn session  but for various reasons the session kept being postponed but eventually we set a date and everything worked out fine.

We had such a fun time with Nicola and Dan and Ella.  I’m a girly girl at heart and I love putting babies in cute tutu’s and hairbands and dressing them up. We even managed to get a couple of sleepy shots too and couldn’t have asked for a cuter or sweeter baby to photograph.

Thanks so much Nicola and Dan, for your patience and your trust, we hope you enjoyed your baby girl’s session with us and we here are just a few shots from our day together. Enjoy your sneak peek.

Jacklyne and Regan’s Wedding – Toronto – MPH Photography

April 27th, 2014

I have known Jacklyne for a few years now, she hired me to do a session with her at the beach one time and we had such a fun time and she’s so cute and sweet and funny and I fell in love with her.  After that we did a few sessions together. Then she met Regan and asked me to photograph their wedding and we were so honoured and so very happy for this sweet couple.

We met up on a cold day in December to do their engagement session, little did we know that it was going to be one long winter and that day was just the beginning of it. Great way to commemorate it though, as we got so many great shots of the two of them together and we laughed and tried to stay warm as we continued,lol. Here are some of the beautiful shots we got that day http://mphphotography.net/blog/2013/12/jacklyne-and-regans-engagement-session-mph-photography-toronto/

I thought these two were a little crazy to try and open up a pub/bar around the same time they were getting married, but the two of them pulled it off. Not sure how, but they transformed The IRV into a gorgeous pub with awesome food and a great place to hang out, then they had their wedding their a month after they opened. It was perfect, this is their life and they incorporated it into their day and it couldn’t have been a better wedding.

We met so many wonderful people at their wedding and we laughed with family and friends as they celebrated the love that these two share. Great food and great atmosphere and it was such a wonderful day.

Jacklyne and Regan, we are so happy you asked us to capture your day for you, it went by quickly but we enjoyed every minute with you. You have a wonderful group of people that love you so and it was so wonderful to capture them all enjoying your special day and we wish you nothing but the best as you start your new lives as husband and wife. Much love to you both. Enjoy your sneak peek.

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.
