The Unintentional Pose:: Toronto Lifestyle Photography

A quick mid week post, as I’m just in love with how unintentional Elliott was today when I was dialing in my settings.  Perhaps it was telling him that mommy’s camera was at an ISO of 2000 and that we were just going to take a few funny pics for daddy that day.   I just couldn’t chance a move closer to the light,  he was so perfect here.  So he gave me a few coos, spat up and after wiping his little cheeks clean — gave me this.   My little Leo, so proud and stealing the spotlight at 12 weeks young.

The W Family:: Toronto Family Photography

This was one of the shoots that could have continued all day, because of all the fun we had!

When Moira contacted me for a photoshoot, she was envisioning a special place in Toronto that had special meaning to them.  Her husband Andrew is a designer and Moira is a landscape architect, so I was so curious what areas they would pick.   We had a great time wandering around the newly re-developed areas of Yorkville where they both told me about their involvement in these beautiful open spaces.  Although, it was pretty chilly that morning, we were able to shoot both indoors as well, including the new Four Seasons Hotel.  The light and architectural details in the hotel are absoultely stunning.  If you live in Toronto, this is certainly a must visit.  The hotel is beautiful.

Harry taught me so much about being four and a half, that it’s a great age of exploration, running, jumping and showing me his theatrical side.  Moira and Andrew, thanks for a great morning and running around with Harry.   As a mama to a four and a half boy now, I totally get this energy and spirit to explore they have.  Just look at the light in his eyes!

Once Upon a Fall:: Toronto Family and Lifestyle Photography

Once upon a fall I photographed this beautiful family.  There are so many locations in Toronto to capture the beauty of this season.  We chose High Park, since it’s such a spectacular location and always comes through, no matter what the season and a great spot for kids to explore.

When I met up with Anna, Rovshan and their two beautiful children Kirusha and Mika, we ran and played in the beautiful fall foliage. The light and the colours are truly spectacular during this time of the year.  We had a great time, and I’m sure these guys had an amazing nap after all the fresh air and exploring!
