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.

Waiting on Baby Girl | Toronto Maternity Photographer

This session was SO much fun.  A mix of intimate maternity photos and some documentary-style family fun, the entire morning was totally up my alley (who doesn't love brunch, amiright?!).  Dawne is such a gorgeous mama and wanted to document this pregnancy as they await the arrival of their baby girl.  She did such a fantastic job modelling and allowed me to get creative with some harsh lighting and I just loved the results!  Then we got together with the rest of the family and captured them preparing and enjoying a delicious brunch.  It was such a relaxed and enjoyable session and I can't wait to capture their baby girl when she arrives this month!
