Cakerific day!

Sunday, October 25th, 2009

I had the pleasure of photographing our cake lady and her family today. Claudia makes AWESOME cakes http://www.cakerific.blogspot.com and she made one for our son’s 3rd birthday in a shape of a little einstein rocket ship cake. My son went nuts and I just can’t wait for their birthdays simply to see what masterpiece Claudia will create.

It was now my turn to do something creative for her. So we went out to one of my fave spots to photograph and she had ideas and plans and poses already set up and I followed her lead. We took those shots that she wanted, AND more. They are such a sweet family and it was so much fun photographing them.

I only had one shot up last night, but this morning I’m adding a shot of each of her wonderful children. I must say they were the best behaved kids, listened and did as they were told and were sooo good. They even organized and practice a shot they had been planning on doing and they went right to their spots and pretty much posed perfectly, i was sooo impressed, bravo! You all are the reason I love what I do, so thank you.

Thanks again Claudia, I had a blast and you have 3 cute kiddos and you and your hubby are the cutest couple, it was a real pleasure hon. We’ll talk soon about the next cake,lol.

Thanksgiving Special – Helen’s Family

Tuesday, October 20th, 2009

I’ve known Helen for a while, we met on an online mom’s group, and we all hang out online at natural mothering and then we have get togethers and playdates every so often as well. Come and check us out if you like http://www.naturalmothering.ca/

I also had the pleasure of shooting Helen and her hubby back in the winter, and boy did we have a blast downtown, it was really a great session, one I will always remember and it definitely made me want to do more couple shoots. You can have a look at their session here http://mphphotography.net/blog/2009/03/contest-winners/

On Saturday I had the joy of photographing their sons, and although they gave me a run for my money, we got them to sit and smile at the same time, which was quite an adventure in getting there. I still think they are cute as can be and much like my boys, and it was fun spending time with them again. Here are just a few from the shoot.
