Joan and Max – MPH Photography – Toronto May 2013

Friday, May 24th, 2013

Joan was referred to me by a good friend and client Louise and I can’t thank Louise enough as it was such a pleasure meeting such an amazing woman. Joan has this aura about her, this je ne sais quoi about her. The kind of person you want to just listen to talk and learn everything you can from her. I could tell from our emails and conversations that this was one determined and strong woman and I couldn’t wait to meet her. Then she sent me a few pics of herself to show me some outfits she was considering and I knew the camera was going to love her as she’s a beautiful woman inside and out.

It was a nice day, a bit windy but much better than the weather has been, its still a bit cold for my liking lately and I’m waiting for the hot weather to get here, but for photo shoots, it was just about perfect.

I knew Joan wanted to get a few shots with her son as well and I knew he wasn’t going to stay long so we got to it and had some fun, made mother and son laugh and I think that Max may have enjoyed himself a little. Not sure, I’ll ask him later,lol. After he left we started photographing Joan in different outfits and I couldn’t stop snapping pictures, she is so statuesque and just so lovely, I didn’t want the session to end.

We had a grand time with Joan and her son Max, and I only hope that these images can truly show how beautiful this woman is.

Thanks Joan and Max, we hope you had a nice time with us and we hope even more that you enjoy the images we captured for you.

Danielle’s sunrise beach maternity session

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

I have photographed Danielle several times, with her niece and then her wedding and now her pregnancy, and I couldn’t be happier for this couple. They opted not to find out what they are having, and I am in awe of that, to wait 9 months to find out is just amazing, I know I couldn’t do it, and didn’t 3 times,lol. I needed to know as soon as I could and for my 2nd I even went as far as to send in my blood to a lab to find out what I was having before my 18 week ultrasound, can you tell I’m not a very patient person,lol. Only a couple more weeks til Danielle and Dave’s baby lets us know what they are, and I can’t wait. I get to photograph this precious little soul and I’m  bursting with anticipation just waiting for this little one to arrive.

While we wait for this baby to be born, Danielle asked me to do a maternity session with her, and I couldn’t help but be thrilled. I knew she was up for anything, so of course I suggested a sunrise session, and she was up for it from the beginning.

Unfortunately when the day came, it was not only cold but the sun did’t really show up for us like it was suppose too,lol. We got a few shots with the sun but it was mostly a very cloudy day. Despite that, I think we got some gorgeous shots and I am so excited to post her sneak peek. Danielle is radiant and she is one of those woman that were made to be a mommy, she is such an amazing aunt and I know this child will be so blessed to have her and Dave as their parents. The love that these two share is so sweet, Dave even came with Danielle to the session that started at 5:30am, now that’s love. This baby is going to love their parents, and vice versa.

I have so many faves from this session and it was so hard to choose which to edit, but I finally decided on these, and just know there were so many more.

Thanks guys, it was such a pleasure photographing you both during this special time. I can’t wait to meet your little one Danielle, I will try my hardest not to cry from my joy when I come to do the newborn session with you and Dave and your new baby. I hope you enjoy your sneak peek and we wish you guys all the happiness and joy in the world as you welcome this little one into your lives.  We love you guys.

BTW, my guess is that they are having a boy, what do you think?

Samara’s Sunrise beach maternity session

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

I can’t tell you how much I love doing sessions like these, they don’t happen often, especially because you can pretty much only do this in the summer while its hot out, so you have to be due sometime between June-September. So when I get the opportunity to do a session like this, I jump on it. There is nothing that compares to a sunrise maternity session at the beach. The lighting and the silhouettes are amazing at this time of day. It’s definitely worth getting up at 4:30am to get there for 5:45 to catch the sunrise.

It’s even more exciting when I’m shooting a return client, and I had such a lovely time photographing this adorable family a few years back, that it made me giddy when she emailed me and told me she was having another baby and then we talked and she loved the idea of doing a sunrise session.

It’s been cold though, and spring has come late this year so I was a bit worried about the weather, but even though it was a bit cold it was still a beautiful day. We would have spent more time at the beach if it wasn’t so windy and I would have taken more shots of Miss Stella but the poor little thing was shivering from the cold, she even had to wear her mommy’s jacket (as you will see in the last image below), as she was just not warm enough with just hers, so we worked as quickly as possible and she was such a sweet little thing, smiling for me even though she was cold. All of them were perfect models and we had such a wonderful time photographing them again.

We captured some beautiful moments and I couldn’t wait to post a sneak peek from this session. There is so much love in this family, and I know this little boy that’s on the way, will be so very loved, and his big sister can’t wait to meet him. Samara is due in June and I wish them all the best as they welcome their newest addition to their sweet family.

Thanks so much Samara for getting up so early and being so brave and working through the cold, I hope you enjoyed your time with us and that you love these images as much as we do. We want to thank Ari and Miss Stella for coming out later on that morning as well and for being so awesome to work with, we really enjoyed photographing you all again.
