Natalia and her mom – MPH Photography – Toronto

Friday, October 28th, 2011

Lately, I’ve had a couple of mother daughter sessions and I have to say I love doing them. It’s so nice to capture a mother and daughter loving each other and loving life and immortalizing that forever on print. Nothing could be better than a day with mom, and then having the pictures to look back upon years later is a treasure in my books. All I know is that these types of sessions has made me want to do one for me and my mom, and I also think its a great way of telling mom how much you love her, and a small thank you for always being there and loving us unconditionally.

I met up with these two lovely ladies on a very windy morning and yet they didn’t let that stop them, they were determined to have fun and enjoy their surroundings. Natalia moved here a few years ago and her mother Marina came for a visit from Russia, she didn’t speak any english, but we got along wonderfully despite it.

We had such a nice time together and Marina’s expression after seeing a few shots that I took of her daughter Natalia was priceless, you could tell how proud Marina is of her daughter.  I loved capturing their relationship on film, it was fun to watch them talk and just be with each other.

I hope that you enjoy your sneak peek ladies, it was great meeting you both and watching you interact with each other, I had so much fun with you ladies, and Marina I hope you enjoy the rest of your stay here in Toronto and I wish you a safe trip back to Russia and I hope you come back soon.

















8 days old – Brooklyn – MPH Photography – Toronto

This is my 3rd session with Susan, and although the other ones were fun this one was special since we were taking pictures of their newborn little girl who was all of 8 days old.

As soon as we met baby Brooklyn, we fell in love, she was sooo cute and sweet and adorable and precious and she slept like a little angel. She was a perfect model, slept through most of the session and barely even cried, only once and it was just while mommy changed her diapers. It was a really great session and we even went outdoors since it was such a nice day, it was one of the best newborn sessions we’ve ever done and  I just couldn’t get enough of this sweet lil girl.

I didn’t want to stop photographing her but after 3 hours and tons of shots, it was time to wrap things up and let mom and dad enjoy their little girl.

It was such an honour photographing Brooklyn’s first few days of life, I’m always smitten with the babies I photograph and I feel a special bond with them since I pretty much knew them since the day they were born,lol.

Susan and John, thanks for hiring us to photograph your precious baby girl, and I hope you enjoy the sneak peek.























Beth & Brian & Bridget & Brooke – MPH Photography – Toronto

I have had the pleasure of photographing this family several times throughout the years and its so wonderful to watch these two girls grow in front of my eyes.  I not only consider the Ward family clients but friends as well, and was very sad last year when they told me they were moving back to New Jersey, and I thought I would probably never see them again.

Glad to say I was wrong, because Beth contacted me a few months after they moved and told me they were coming back to Toronto for a few days and if she could book another session with me! I was thrilled and so excited and then when the day got here,  the weather was perfect and the location was awesome, and it turned out to be such a wonderful day.

We met at Hart House and after exchanging hugs we began and it was non stop fun the rest of the session. I just love this family and am beyond thrilled that they traveled across the border to do a session with me and I look forward to photographing them every year.

Beth and Brian, I want to thank you for your constant support and enthusiasm, and I’m so touched that you keep coming back even though you moved so far away. I really hope you enjoy your sneak peek from our day together, and you know you are welcome back to Toronto, anytime!!!





















Ginette & Ginger – MPH Photography – Toronto

I had the pleasure of meeting Ginette and Ginger for the first time this past weekend and it was a beautiful day and when we first met in the parking lot,  I felt an instant connection with these two. They are both so cute and so sweet and kind and up for anything. This mother and daughter duo, reminded me of my mom and I, and they had such a great time with each other as I was photographing them and I almost felt like I was a part of their family.

We had such a nice time and it was alot of fun, and with the flowers and the water and the beautiful views, we couldn’t have picked a better spot for the session. We went to Rosetta McClain park in Scarborough and this was my first time doing a session there, but I don’t think it will be my last as its really a stunning place.

They both brought personal props, which I think is fantastic as it adds to the session and personalizes it and makes a session unique and it was quite a fun session, and I didn’t want it to end.

Thanks so much Ginette and Ginger, you both are wonderful and I loved photographing you both and it was a great session, thanks for driving all that way and I hope you enjoy the sneak peek.






















Logan and Keaton – Brothers – MPH Photography – Toronto

I love these boys as if they were my own, after all I have photographed much if not all of their lives to date and just love that every year in the fall I know that I will be doing a session for these two. Their mother Lori and I met years ago and became fast friends, and since we both have 2 boys, we set up playdates so we could go through the insanity together while drinking a cup of coffee,lol.

Our oldest sons are alot alike and so are our younger ones and its like being with my boys when I’m with them. Lo lo and Ki ki are so affectionate too and I love all the hugs I get from them. They are so cute and loving and sweet, and you just want to pick them up and squeeze them, and I get such a kick out of photographing them every year. I can see the 4 of our boys getting together and going out for a drive when they get older, but for now, we’ll just watch them having fun playing with trucks and dirt and realizing how much our lives are very similar.

Lori has become a great friend over the years and it means the world to me that she keeps coming back every year to get her son’s pics done by me, I’m always touched and honoured.

Every year we go to the same spot, riverdale farm, as the boys love it there and they didn’t sit still much, but we had a fun time chasing them around and trying to make them stop for a shot or two. They are definitely two of the cutest little boys and they never take a bad shot.

Here are just a few from our session, thanks again Lori, love you guys and hope you like your sneak peek.
