Spencers Bar Mitzvah

Mazel Tov baby boy… as they all call you.

Everyone said you did amazing up at the Torah and I have no doubt. Spencer is a great kid, and definitely cute a button with that “bunny face”! 🙂

The Pasternak’s are truly good people and I couldn’t be happier and more honoured to have shared a wonderful simcha with them. This was one heck of a party! Aaron and staff from Bounce Entertainment (http://www.bouncedj.com) killed it… music was bumping, dance floor was full and walls at The Avenue Banquet Hall (http://theavenuebanquethall.com) were shaking.

This was hard to narrow down and got it down to 75 photos lol… don’t envy them to choose photos for their album. (just saying) 😉

Jen and Cory – 1 + 1 = 3

I love it when parents-to-be keep it a surprise to find out if baby is a boy or girl.  Mainly because I like to guess… I get a 50/50 chance of being right hehe… I’m guessing boy for Jen. (just because). I think waiting for that moment when you hear your babies first cry and then the Dr. says “It’s a ….” There’s just something about that moment, that second of anticipation of back and forth, boy/girl… It’s also the one true thing in life you have no control over and me being a control freak it’s kinda nice… I however, did find out that we were having a boy (Jon was adamant on knowing so I had no choice), it was just as exciting, but I still sometimes go back wishing I waiting to find out.

Jen is a glowing mom, her bump is just perfect and she was very comfortable in front of the camera as you can see in her photos.  We had a great “lifestyle” type session, using the elements of their gorgeous reno’d house and then going to a local park in Toronto.  Perfect sunset photos and just a perfect day! Enjoy and can’t wait to meet your little baby…

And then there were 4 | Toronto Newborn Photographer

I am so in-love with this maternity session.  Their son can’t wait to be a big brother to his baby sister who will be gracing us with her loveliness in June.  Gave him a little bit of the limelight also before his sister comes and couldn’t be happier with the results.

This maternity / family photography session was done in the family’s Toronto home.  We set up a small little studio set up as well to get the “best of both worlds”.

This family is a true statement of how I love growing with my families.  I met them a year ago when I photographed their son’s 2nd birthday party in Thornhill.  Now I get to watch this family grow and I get to be part of it.  It’s a wonderful and humbling feeling. I have so many things I want to say about this family, how I adore them, how amazing their session was but instead, I’ll just leaving it to the slideshow for your viewing pleasure.

Michelle and Robbie + 1

It was a gorgeous spring Sunday afternoon at Michelle and Robbie’s beautiful home.  I had the ultimate pleasure of being part of one of the most exciting times of their lives.  Michelle is 36 weeks pregnant and looks absolutely amazing, the true baby glow with the most perfect baby bump.  I had a blast and Michelle had the cutest and funnest ideas for her session, definitely unique ideas.  Super excited to meet their little bundle… wait till you see some of Michelle’s ideas hehe

Colby is ONE

A very big birthday for this cute little guy.  Such a sweet boy with those big brown eyes and super adorable curls.  Colby definitely made me work for his smiles but when he gave them… oh boy did the hearts melt.  He was the most cutest kid with his cake smash, I wish there was video or audio cause all he was doing was eating and making mmmm sounds. lol. Someone was enjoying his cake and wasn’t very happy when it was all done… hehe in a word – CUTIE!!
