Sunrise maternity session at the beach – Toronto – MPH Photography

Tuesday, June 11th, 2013

Had a lovely time with Charlotte photographing her little belly this past weekend, had to keep telling her to stick it out because you couldn’t see it that much,lol.  It was a nice day although the sun did not show up for us again (although I did add some sun to the first image), but we still had fun and I’m loving the images that we got from our time together. Then her cute and adorable little boy came with papa and her little boy stole my heart. That smile and those big brown eyes and any lady would just die for those eyelashes. He wore this cute little bow tie and I couldn’t stop gushing over him, wanted to take him home after the session,lol. He was a little bit shy but full of smiles and just the cutest little thing. He is going to be one sweet and wonderful big brother to this little boy on the way.

Getting up at 4:30am to do a session like this is well worth it, as no one is at the beach at this time and we have the place all to ourselves and usually by the time we finish, the beach is packed, so although I hate getting up so early, its definitely the best time to do a session if you don’t want anyone else around.

Charlotte rocked it, she wore heels and looked stunning. I could have spent several more hours photographing her but she had a yoga class to go teach and we decided to wrap things up and I couldn’t wait to get home and start editing her images. It was hard to choose the ones I liked best though, as they were so many good shots and I hope she likes the ones I chose to edit.

Charlotte and Seth and Isaiah, thanks so much for coming out so early, it was so nice meeting you all and we hope you enjoyed your time with us and we also hope you love your sneak peek.

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.

Top 14 – MPH Photography – Toronto

I want to take a minute and thank everyone, clients, family, friends, everyone who has supported us and believed in us. Without you all, we would not be here and I can’t thank you enough for such an awesome year! Looking back over the 70+ sessions we’ve had in 2010, it gives me such joy and I’m honoured that so many of you have chosen us to photograph you and in essence be a part of your family for the day. I truly have the best job and I love what I do and I love putting smiles on your faces and love capturing those special moments that families share. I feel very blessed and thank God everyday for where I am and what I have and I only pray that He blesses all of you as well during this blessed season and throughout the new year.

To end this year, I’ve decided to do a contest where I have picked 14 of my favourite images from this year’s sessions (which was a very difficult task since there were so many that I liked and tried to pick only 10 but ended up with 14,lol) and then having you vote on which one you like best. The winner will receive a free session with me in 2011! Contest runs until Dec. 31st and the winner will be announced on Jan. 1!!!

JAMAICA Mon!!

Wednesday, October 15th, 2008

So on Oct. 4, I was fortunate enough to go on an impromptu trip to Jamaica with my best friend Stella. This was our 2nd trip together, we’ve been to St. Martin and we’ve had so much fun together that we want to try to make this an annual get away. While in Jamaica I had the chance to shoot 3 weddings and I also brought a wedding dress for Stella to wear and trash, so on Friday Oct. 10 we got up at 5am (a bit too early I think) and proceeded to head out. We had so much fun, and i got some really wonderful images of Stella, can’t wait to show more, but here are a few from the weddings and the trash the dress session. I also did a shoot with a couple that i met that were on the same plane with us and we did a wonderful sunset session together as well. I was too busy to relax, and think I need a vacation from my vacation.

While in Jamaica, we went up Dunn’s river falls (my 2nd time up, went up it 15 yrs ago with my hubby) and we checked out Rick’s cafe as well, awesome divers and great place for sunsets. If you ever go there, you need to go to 7 mile beach, pristine beautiful warm waters and you need to go to Margaritaville, they not only take great care of you and bring you lounge chairs to lay on or aloe to cool off with and they have great food and drinks too.

Oh and Jamaica has great jewellery too, diamonds and such, so make sure you bring your credit card with you,lol.

Onto the pics, yes, there’s alot of them,lol.

First sunset

My gorgeous friend Stellitsa

Love this shot, its Maragaritville at 7 mile beach.
