Samantha’s Family – Toronto – MPH Photography

I met Samantha via email as she had contacted me about possibly using one of my photos for the cover of the digest for Toronto Today’s Parent magazine I was more than excited and thrilled that they even considered one of my images for the cover. I find out their decision soon, hopefully by next week as they are currently deciding between mine and another image for the cover, and I’m saying a prayer that they pick mine. It was an honour to be asked regardless of wether they use the image or not. Just know I’ll be shouting it from the mountain top if they do pick mine. 🙂

In the meantime, Samantha booked a session with me to do mainly headshots for her two children. So, we set up a session date and went out and had a lovely time together, her kids are so cute and Cassidy is 10 1/2 and such a little lady, so poised and beautiful. Grady is full of life and such a cutie, he reminds me of my little one. Keep an eye out for this little guy as he just finished shooting a commercial for cheerios, can’t wait to see it, both these kids are little stars. They were also so well behaved and the whole family was such a pleasure to photograph.

Edited to add that I almost forgot that while I was shooting this adorable family, Grady not once but twice picked me some flowers to give to me, what a sweetheart, moments like those make me love my job even more!

Thanks again Samantha, I hope you enjoy your sneak peeks.

    They are a beautiful family! You did a wonderful job (as usual) with the photos, they are perfect! I love that they all wore a completely different solid color. Not the norm of all blue or white (or whatever). They look great!
