As many of my reader’s know, I often post about my best friends’ children. Since I don’t have any of my own, I give my undivided attention to Elise and Ethan when I see them. Soon enough, they will be grown and babies no longer 😦

A quick trip to Springridge Farm in Milton proved to be a success for Elise but not so much for Ethan. Ethan was less than impressed on this trip but Elise was in good spirits. At least we were successful for one!

We tried our best to capture some cute shots of the kids and the kids with their mamas. Here are just some of my favourites.

3 years ago, I had the extreme pleasure of photographing Amanda and Giorgio’s wedding at the Berkeley Fieldhouse in Toronto. Power couple in business and in personal goals, this duo is one of my favourites!

They just recently gave life to a little bundle of joy – their first child and named him Hugo. He is a laid-back little baby and these two parents couldn’t be more glowing. I was actually surprised at how put together they were and how tidy their beautiful home was. lol. We had a great afternoon reveling in Hugo and I was specifically pleased with the outcome.

Thank you for a wonderful afternoon.

I met Amy on a rainy afternoon at a Starbucks with her bundle of joy, Elle, in tow. This joyful baby and Amy had come to meet me for a wedding inquiry. It was a pleasant surprise. We chatted about Amy and Jamie’s “real” wedding celebration plans as they are already officially married. Amy wanted the chance to celebrate with a huge bash after Elle was born as they didn’t get a chance to do it the first time. I can’t wait for this couple’s unique wedding bash with Elle by their side! This trio is such a beautiful and loving family. Congrats guys!

On Sunday 22nd, photographer David Wile (www.davidwile.com) and I joined forces yet again to shoot a baby creative. I will launch the creative soon but for now, these are some of the baby, toddler and family portraits that we shot in exchange for parents coming from all over the GTA and beyond to let us photograph their wonderful little babes.

Thank you so much to all of the families who participated! All of the kids were a delight and I don’t think we had one crier. I would also like to make a special thank you to Averill Clarke who is a long time family friend and nurse at Sick Kids hospital. She was my personal baby rep for this photo-shoot. I think she rounded up half of the city with young children for me!!!! Thank you, Thank you Averill!!! 🙂

So, now for a peak at some of the family portrait shots.

Last weekend, my boyfriend Dave Wile and I set out to shoot a joint creative involving babies and water. (the rest is a secret until we release the images). In exchange for getting beautiful babies from modelling agency, Minor Details, we shot each childs’ headshot and photos with their parent(s).

Thank you so much to all the parents, aunties and grandmas for coming out and making this experience a fantastic one! Your children were a dream! We have taken some perfect images for our creative and some equally adorable head-shots.

(As you can tell, I have a bias towards mixed babies…and especially a bias towards babies with big hair! lol.)

These are just adorable kids! Please enjoy!

Cherry Beach offers a great range of backdrops to perfectly reflect the summer-happy moods of families enjoying the last days of summer together. Siblings and their children gathered from all distances to celebrate their mother’s birthday for just one quick weekend. I had the joy of capturing this mini reunion with an organized family portrait which will probably be only one of the few that will be captured in the next 10 years for this family living on different continents around the world.
