Shameela’s Family – MPH Photography – Toronto

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

They were calling for a storm but thankfully it didn’t hit Newmarket where we did this family session. It was a bit grey out and we had a bit of light rain on and off but it was nothing like what hit in Toronto. On the way back we saw floods, tons of trees down and lights out all over the place. Even our oldest (whose 8) called us worried that we were caught in the storm, I assured him we weren’t and then it totally cleared up after that, which was great for us as we had another shoot to do later that day.

Shameela’s family is so sweet, we were welcomed with open arms, and their youngest boy Deen, just gave me the biggest hug with the biggest smile, I didn’t want to let him go, and really all 4 children were so well behaved and so wonderful to photograph.

We had to work quickly though as we could see the dark skies closing in and it did start to rain more towards the end of the session. It worked out well though, and we got to meet this beautiful family and we had a really nice time with them, having fun, blowing bubbles and enjoying their backyard.

It was definitely a pleasure photographing your family Shameela, thank you for allowing us into your beautiful home and photographing your wonderful family,  and thanks for the piece of cake (my weekness) as well,  we hope you enjoy the sneak peek.



















Sonny’s Family session – MPH Photography – Toronto

Monday, August 15th, 2011

I met this lovely family last Friday and we really had a great time during this session. Sonny and Tina have 2 beautiful daughters, Julia and Nikki and they were so cute and adorable and the little one (Nikki) had me laughing the whole time, especially when she put her foot up during the one family shot, I just fell in love with her. Julia was eye candy for my camera, a very pretty girl and I still can’t believe she’s only 13!!!

Beautiful parents and beautiful girls, it was great watching Julia with her little sister and capturing them together, you can see how much they love each other. I am sure they will always be very close and I know they’ll always be each other’s best friend.

Sonny is a kung fu master, and I should have made him show me some moves but we got carried away taking pictures, so perhaps another time. Tina is so sweet pretty and I can see where her girls get their beauty from,lol.

Thanks Sonny and Tina for allowing me to capture your family and spend some time with you all. I hope you enjoy your sneak peek.























Our cottage – MPH Photography – Toronto

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

For years my husband has been looking and talking about purchasing a cottage,  a place away from the city with a little beach so that the boys can run around and swim and have fun at. Well, I’m happy to say that we found that place this year and in May we purchased it and we have had the most fun this summer and I tear up thinking of all the memories we have created just from one short season.

For years to come we’ll be roasting marshmallows and swimming in the river as well as fishing and bbqing and inviting friends up to enjoy a day or two away from all the hustle and bustle. It’s located near Campbellford, on the crowe river and we can’t wait to pack up our stuff almost every other weekend and head out to the cottage. I even had to reschedule a few sessions to get a few more weeks worth of going to the cottage, the summer goes by so fast and this is the busy time of year with sessions, so it was quite hard figuring out when we could go. I’m wishing we bought a cottage years ago but the boys are still young and I think this was the best year of their lives so far. I’m so looking forward to many more years of enjoying cottage life and building beautiful memories with my family there.

Besides our little beach, that happens to be quite shallow for the most part and nice and warm in the summer, we found a gorgeous new spot just minutes away and it has miniature falls along with a calm little area to swim in above the falls, its just the most awesome place. The boys fell in love and so did our guests and I’m so glad I brought the camera up to take some pics of this place and the time we spent together.  I could barely wait to put up some pics, but it took me a long time to go through them all,lol. So here is our cottage, we went up with a few close friends and we fished, swam, had a foam party and ate like kings and really had such a wonderful time. We are actually sad that its already August and realistically we can only go up a few more times, and I’m already planning next year’s itinerary for the summer months,lol.

Here’s a few images from our home away from home.
