The Sproat Family | Toronto Lifestyle Photographer

I had SO much fun with the Sproat family during the Saturday morning we spent together.  John and Becky welcomed me so warmly into their home, and gave me total freedom to do my thing as I captured all of the antics and fun that unfolded! Jesse and Alexa were silly and adventurous, as you will see from a few of the photos at the park (was I that brave as a child?)!  When we returned back home though, they were kind enough to show me a few of their favourite things.  Alexa loves cats and Jesse loves pugs, and both love Lego!  They also both adore their little white hamster, Fiona, who become quite the star, and actually had some impressive posing skills...although she did poop a lot ;)  Becky and John were also game for a few couples shots which made me very happy!  All-in-all it was everything I hope for in a family session, and as always, an honour to create these memories for them.

Reshma & Irfan | Toronto Maternity Photographer

Meet Reshma and Irfan.  As soon as Reshma and I started emailing one another, I knew we would be fast friends!  Mainly because she suggested we play Friends trivia together (ummm, YES!) and was a fan of Kawartha Dairy ice cream, but also because her kind and laid back personality was apparent even through email.  I met Reshma and Irfan on the day of their baby shower at a family member's home, which as you can see was a gorgeous space and had an incredible backyard backing onto a small lake!  Such a fun place to shoot!  I can't wait to meet the sweet baby boy inside that belly and capture their brand new family love in a few short days!

Andrea & Joe | Toronto Maternity Photographer

I had the pleasure of meeting Andrea and Joe in early June, on a gorgeous golden evening, to capture their maternity photos.  They are one of the few couples I've worked with who are saving baby's gender for a surprise, and I can't wait to meet him or her when baby arrives this summer!  These two were very patient with me as we navigated some seriously gross mud (thanks to a rainy spring!), and when I had to take my sandals off to shake out all of the bugs.   I think it may be time to invest in a good pair of rubber boots!  But this beautiful couple and the gorgeous light more than made up for all that.  I look forward to the arrival of their baby and capturing their first days as a family of 3!

The DeKoning Family | Toronto Family Photographer

It was a grey foggy morning when I pulled up to this family's home after a bit of a sketchy drive (because of the fog, not my driving skills!).  But as you can see there was nothing grey or dreary going on once I walked through the door!  I was greeted with so much warmth by Kassandra and Brent, as well as by the littlest cutie who was running around sans pants! Both boys totally ignored my camera which was a real treat, and we captured some beautiful, candid memories of them enjoying time together, with their parents and destroying a beautiful cheese board.  There was also a very patient kitty thrown into the mix somewhere.  It would be crime for me not to mention their gorgeous home...it was the perfect setting for an in-home family session and I will be stalking Kassandra's beautiful blog, Little DeKonings, for decor inspiration for many years to come!  If anyone has any suggestions for how to convince my husband to redecorate our entire home, please send them my way ;)

Courtney & Ren | Uxbridge Maternity Photographer

Last week I had the pleasure of shooting some maternity photos for my grade-school friend Courtney and her husband Ren! I can't even remember when Courtney and I last connected, so when she got in touch to see if I could capture her maternity and newborn photos I was thrilled. They brought me to a gorgeous area in the Uxbridge trails (its the trail capital of Canada!).  I can't believe I lived in Uxbridge for half my life and have never been to this spot.  It was a beautiful sunset session and we had so much fun.  They brought their dog Jack and he was basically an angel.  I'm sad I didn't find an opportunity to sneak him into my car and bring him home with me! All jokes of puppy-napping aside, I can't wait to meet their sweet baby soon and find out if it's a boy or girl!
