Jennifer & Andrew – MPH Photography – Toronto

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

Living all my life in Toronto, it constantly surprises me that there are so many places that I have not been to yet. We have so many beautiful and picturesque locations and I’m always up for trying out a new location, as you never know what you may find.

I met such a cute couple last night, and they brought their sweet lil pup with them and we had such a wonderful time. We decided to go to Ashbridges bay near the yacht club, a spot that I have never had the pleasure to explore til last night.

I am so glad Jennifer wanted to do the session there as I had no clue what I was missing. Gorgeous views of the city and boats, and the water, and geese and lovely green grass, and rocks and beach, its a photographer’s dream location. I definitely think I’ll be going back there again if not with clients, then definitely with my family.

Jennifer and Andrew and Charles, it was a pleasure meeting and photographing you all, the 3 of you are so much fun and we really enjoyed our time with you. I couldn’t wait to get your sneak peek out, so here are a few of my faves, enjoy.

 

 

 

 

 

Bridal with Marta – MPH Photography – Toronto

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011

I met Marta at a fantastic workshop that I went too and we hit it off right away. She was the model at the time for this workshop, but little did I know that she has an interest in photography as well. We started chatting and she reminded me of me when I first started out in photography. Eager and excited and I saw she had a love for photography. Besides being beautiful, she’s a sweetheart and she asked me if we could get together sometime and chat about photography and I was definitely up for that. Then I thought of the phaunt convention, where a bunch of photographer friends of mine got together for a weekend in Toronto in May and I was looking for models for 4 shoots that I was trying to set up for the weekend. I thought Marta would probably like to come and watch us and perhaps model for us as well, and I asked her and she was totally interested and we were both excited.

She showed up bright and early and had hair and makeup done by Surekha artistry and she looked gorgeous, I couldn’t wait to start photographing her. Actually I didn’t wait, while the other models were getting their hair and makeup done, I decided to start photographing Marta since she was ready to go. It was a rainy day, so we didn’t get to go out much, but we found lots of great spots in and around the Delta Chelsea hotel – downtown Toronto and the lighting was awesome and loved all the locations at the hotel and it was just about a perfect day. We had so much fun, and I could have photographed Marta all day long. She wanted to learn a little as well, so after we were all done, she got changed and joined the rest of us with her camera and she fit right in.

We had a wonderful time and I think we became good friends as well, and I look forward to hanging out with Marta again, perhaps will do another session sometime.

For now, here are lots of images I took of Marta (this is why I need to create a post just for her images), and here is the link to the rest of the images I took that weekend http://mphphotography.net/blog/2011/05/pv-2011-toronto-mph-photography/

Thanks Marta for being so wonderful, love ya girl.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Indian Bridal – MPH Photography – Toronto

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

What do you get when you combine a beautiful model and a truly talented and amazing hair and makeup artist?? A perfect shoot! I was so happy to photograph Angeli  in a couple of Indian bridal outfits, I just love the colours and its like photographing jewels. Angeli wore two spectacular outfits and then Mrs. C, our hair and makeup artist from surekha artistry dressed up for the occasion and I took a few shots of her as well who is also beautiful as she is talented.

It’s so much fun working with other creative people and this was a wonderful session and I loved every minute of it.

I have so many favourites, so here’s tons of images from our fun day. Special thanks go out to Angeli and to Mrs. C.

Rina’s Boys – MPH Photography – Toronto

Monday, June 13th, 2011

I love working with Rina and her boys, this is our 3rd session together and the boys are becoming pros at this. Besides being so cute and adorable and tons of fun, they have the most amazing colour hair, red headed boys and I never stop smiling when I photograph these little guys.

Rina wanted to go to graffiti alley in Toronto and it was a perfect day and I suggested to bring some water guns and she did and they couldn’t wait to play with them. After what must have seemed like forever to them,lol, it was time to play with the water guns and out they came and tons of laughter and screaming ensued.

These 3 boys remind me of our boys,  they love each other and fight with each other and play together just like all brothers do. It was cute to watch them and I’m honoured to have photographed them for the past few years, watching them grow has been a pleasure.

Thanks Rina, its always wonderful to see you and the boys again and I got so many shots that I love and it was hard to choose my faves, so here are more than a few for your sneak peek. 😉

 

 

 

 

 

Olga – MPH Photography – Toronto

Tuesday, June 7th, 2011

I had the pleasure of photographing Olga when I did headshots at the verity club and I’m happy that she wanted to book another session with me, as she is such a lovely person and funny and sweet and we had a great time during her session.

Even though it was a bit windy out, it was still nice and warm and we had a wonderful time and at the end her husband even joined us for a couple of shots.

Here are a few shots from our session, and I want to thank Olga for hiring me again to photograph her, it was so much fun, and I think I have a new friend now. Olga, thanks hon and thank your hubby too for the excellent advice 😉 Enjoy your sneak peek hon.
