1st Year Series: Brynmore

I’ve been visiting Bryn every 3 months since he was born to capture him and his family as he grows. It’s been such a pleasure to see Bryn grow up into the little man that he is today, and to see Andrew and Kirsty grow in their role as parents and as a family. Thank you for choosing me to document your first year as a family!

Winter Wonderland Shoot with The Chambers – Toronto Family Photographer

The day before my shoot with the Chambers, I checked the weather and was overjoyed to see that our first REAL snowfall of the year would happen that night. I woke up to a perfect sheet of white snow and couldn’t want to get out and shoot with them. The session was a gift from the family to their parents Prue and Bruce, who were also celebrating their 43rd wedding anniversary that day. The Chambers are a warm and caring family and I really enjoyed photographing them.

Setareh’s Surprise Baby Shower – Toronto Wedding and Event Photographer

I had an amazing time photographing this baby shower. It was a complete surprise to the guest of honor! Her friend planned the whole thing and got her there by telling her that she had booked an appointment for them to see the party room so that they could consider it for her baby shower. Little did she know that she would walk right into one when she arrived! For a woman who was caught off guard and a week away from giving birth, Setare certainly looked picture perfect.

Madeleine Azalea, 3 Days Old – Toronto Newborn and Family Photographer

Baby Madeleine was born on 12/12/12… What a special date! When I met her 3 days later to take her picture, she was a delight. I was in love with her nursery and her homemade mobile!

Since I was there ten days before Christmas and the Christmas tree was up and looking lovely, I just had to take a few Christmas themed photos. Being a Christmas baby myself, I know what it’s like to have your birthday overshadowed by the holidays, but it was just too hard to resist!

Thomas and Kelly’s Vietnamese Wedding in Vaughn – Toronto Wedding Photographer

Thomas and Kelly’s wedding was a change from the kind of wedding that I normally photograph – They had a traditional Vietnamese ceremony at Kelly’s parents’ house in Vaughn, followed by a Western style reception at Le Jardin in Woodbridge. I loved all of the colours of the Vietnamese dresses, and the reception afterwards was such a blast!

Patrizia and Victor’s Surprise Wedding in Durham – Toronto Wedding Photographer

When Patrizia and Victor told me about their wedding, I was really excited to be part of it and couldn’t wait to see how it turned out. They hadn’t told any of their friends or family (aside from their Maid of Honor and Best Man) that they were even engaged, let alone getting married! The wedding was a total surprise – The guests were all told different stories to get them to the same place, and the whole ceremony and reception took place in a small Italian restaurant that was owned by family friends. It was a simple, intimate ceremony and Victor’s parents, who live in Ecuador, watched the ceremony via Skype.

Chris and Karenza’s Wedding at Ancaster Old Mill – Toronto Wedding Photographer

Karenza and Chris’s wedding was a pleasure to photograph. Their wedding was a genuine reflection of who they are, both separately and together, and their love for each other left me grinning all night long and well into my drive home.¬†

Congratulations, Karenza and Chris! Thanks for letting me share your beautiful day.

Engagement Session with Jacqueline and Dave – Toronto Wedding and Family Photographer

This morning I’m excited to share my engagement session with Jacqueline and Dave. Dave proposed to Jacqueline at the top of the CN Tower! And if you think that’s romantic, you should know that it was just Plan B. Plan A was to propose in a helicoper ride over the city, but the helicopter was grounded due to¬†inclement weather. I think that the top of the CN tower is just as beautiful, don’t you?
