Easter Birthday Party!

 

Easter Birthday Party!

Over the Easter weekend I had the privilege of photographing an Easter Birthday Party by Arti Mestieri Events.   The decor was breathtaking and it fit the Easter theme perfectly for a beautiful little girl.   Arti Mestieri Events put together such a beautiful and memorable 2nd birthday party complete with a all of Faith’s favourite things.  I personally know that Faith LOVED the bunny juice boxes, she had a couple and saved a few more in her little Easter basket.

A Mini Little Model!

It didn’t take the little birthday girl too long to warm up to me.  I have photographed Faith several times since she was born but she always likes to play shy with me.  I love her facial expressions in the sequence of photos below.  I was actually shocked when she gave me a little modelling photo shoot!

Fallingbrook – prime real estate pocket

Fallingbrook – prime real estate pocket

Do you think I only photograph people?   I do photograph other subjects as well.
Way back when digital photography didn’t exist, only film, I studied photography.  At Humber College I learned everything about photography, even theory (boring)!
Yes, some things I enjoyed more than others.

The things I loved and still love the best are people and interiors / details.
A few weeks ago I was hired to take photos of a luxurious home in the city of Toronto.  This dream home is  designed beautifully and full of natural light!

“Filled with light, styled with comfort and nestled on an oversized lot, this deceptively large home is embraced by spectacular gardens. A distinctively unique residence, 130 Fallingbrook Rd. beckons you and your family home. “ Fallingbrook,” hailed by the Globe and Mail as “one of the prime real estate pockets” in the city of Toronto is steps from the best school in the beach, minutes from the bustle of the boardwalk, and close to other coveted amenities including golf, parks and shopping. 130 Fallingbrook Rd. boasts a walk score of 87, and a transit score of 85 allowing you to do most of your errands on foot with close proximity to Victoria Park Station and other TTC amenities.

Classic and elegant, 130 Fallingbrook was built in the 1920’s, and has been significantly renovated with quality to accommodate modern family living without compromising the character and charm of the original home. Contemporary architecture accentuated with vaulted ceilings, a large foyer, expansive walls of windows, multiple skylights, modern kitchen and baths and an opulent master bedroom have been skillfully blended with many heritage elements including: (3) wood burning fireplaces, original plank wood floors in the living room, leaded glass windows and even the original interior doors.”

 

Take a look at this beautiful magazine that was designed by Jonny Desliva at Rockwell Creative for Dale Biason at Royal LePage.

I took all the interior photos and I loved doing it!

The right time to have your family portrait taken.

 

The right time to have your family portrait taken.

We are always waiting for the right time but when is the right time to have your family portrait taken?  There is no wrong time to have our photo taken just a different time in our lives. We wait for the perfect time but while we are waiting life continues.  Yes, that family photo may look different not because we lost the weight we wanted to lose but because we lost a loved one and that loved one is missing from that photo.

Embracing and accepting ourselves as we are is so much more important than missing out on a chance to have our family portrait taken with all of our family members.

Don’t wait. Life is short and we don’t want to live with regrets.  We should care less about how we look and more about who is here with us today to take part in making these memories last a lifetime.

Newborn Baby Portraits of Baby Delano!

Newborn Baby Portraits of Baby Delano!

Oh. My. Goodness. Delano was absolutely adorable and check out his hair!!! I love, love, love his hair!!!

I could not wait to meet baby Delano and my heart was melting the entire photo session.

I’ve been photographing his beautiful family ever since his big sister, Evangeline was only one!  I was expecting to see a light haired baby, just like his sister but boy was I surprised. It’s pretty amazing that Evangeline looks like her mommy and Delano like his daddy.

They are such a beautiful family, inside and out.

During the newborn baby portraits it was so nice to see how Evangeline was interacting with her new baby brother.  She was still getting used to being a big sister and she did a great job holding her baby brother. It was so sweet to watch her as she would curiously but gently touch Delano’s head. Moments like these are priceless.

I’m looking forward to see this young family grow through the lens of my camera.

Call now to book your session!

The best time to photograph your baby is 7 days or earlier; 10 days at the oldest.

Newborn Portrait Sessions are best held in the comfort of your own home.  It is so much easier for families with newborns to have their photographer come to their home to photograph these special moments instead of packing up and heading to a studio! Lets face it, your home is a lot more of a comfortable place to have your newborn / family photo session.

Don’t wait until after your newborn baby arrives. Book before you deliver to avoid disappointment!

Daniela + Justin {Niagara on the lake}

Daniela + Justin {Niagara on the lake}

Daniela + Justin are a super sweet couple that I got to know a bit better while photographing their engagement session on a vineyard in Niagara-on-the-Lake at sunset. A place where Daniela and Justin like to go to celebrate their birthdays and their anniversaries.
I found out that they are both great skaters! Daniela was a competitive figure skater who for a period of time competed against her own cousin, Diana!  Although they competed against each other, they were always supportive and very happy for the one who placed first. (The other was not that far behind in second place). Sometime Daniela would be first and sometimes it would be Diana. Eventually the girls were on the same team and competed together. Daniela and Diana are very close, in fact they will be each other’s maid of honour for their weddings! Justin is a professional Hockey player. He is currently playing in Europe. I can’t imagine how hard it is for the both of them to be apart but Daniela makes sure to fly out to spend some time with Justin as often as she can.

While Daniela was visiting Justin in Europe, they decided to go the Rome for Christmas …

The Proposal:
We went to Rome for Christmas and the first day we got there we decided just to walk around and see whatever sites were on the way. Justin insisted on bringing his laptop with him while we walked around because he wanted to Skype his parents when we found a cafe to show them Rome. Once we got to Trevi Fountain he pulled out his laptop and told me he had made me a Christmas gift, which was a video with pictures from our years of being together. At the end was a letter to me, and as I was reading it he got down on one knee, pulled a ring out of his pocket and asked me to marry him. After a lot of crying and saying yes, he put the video back on and there were congratulatory messages from our families back home. It was the biggest surprise as he had asked my family for their blessings in May, and had kept the ring for so long (without me ever telling him what I wanted), and without me finding it.

What Daniela loves about Justin: I love how happy he makes me and how much he makes laugh, how outgoing and friendly he is and that he has such a big heart and will do anything for the people he loves.

What Justin loves about Daniela: I love how kind and loving she is and how beautiful she is inside and out.
