Into the Woods with the Øgaard Family

April 27, 2020

When I met this fam­i­ly, I was think­ing how much I was going to learn from Don­na and Peter who were rais­ing three boys, just like me. And I cer­tain­ly did! What I learned is to let them have fun. Boys are explor­ers, they like to climb trees, get into the thick of bush­es, get their […]

A Captured Moment with Sisters: Maggie and Alex

March 16, 2020

The term “fam­i­ly” goes a long way as to how I con­nect­ed with these two beau­ti­ful souls, Mag­gie and Alex. When I joined the Uni­ver­si­ty of Toron­to Gospel Choir (UTGC), I was mere­ly seek­ing a musi­cal out­let, as I had fin­ished my term as a can­tor at my church. Lit­tle did I know, UTGC was […]

Xander’s First Photoshoot ~ The Phillips Family

March 23, 2018

Steve and I go way back to high school days. He had (has) a deep appre­ci­a­tion for music — so much so he DJs — and the visu­al arts that he even bought a poster that we (the Visu­al Arts club) had made for one of our dances. Through the ben­e­fit of Face­book, we reconnected […]

Now We Are Three, A Fa-mi-ly ~ The Dunton Family

January 5, 2018

It’s so excit­ing to enter a home with new­­ly-made par­ents, as they pre­pare for their child’s first pho­to­shoot. Hav­ing gone through that process myself three times, I’m always intrigued to hear how the deliv­ery went and all the mem­o­rable cir­cum­stances that brought this mir­a­cle of life into the world. Aman­da and Jon were nat­u­ral­ly great first-time parents […]

Growing Miracles of Love with the Zarb Family

December 21, 2017

From engage­ment to wed­ding, from mater­ni­ty to first-born, Ash­ley and Joel have ush­ered me once again into the next phase of their lives … expect­ing no. 2! What a priv­i­lege it is to grow with clients whom I con­sid­er as friends. Since Isabel­la’s new­born ses­sion, I had only watched her grow through the won­der­ful images […]

A Day in the Life of the Garde-Ginis Family

September 29, 2017

As I was shoot­ing Krys­tiana & Ben’s wed­ding, one of her rel­a­tives had approached me, ask­ing about pho­tog­ra­phy. If you know me by now, I can go on-and-on about pho­tog­ra­phy and it’s great to chat with some­one who has a pro­found inter­est in mak­ing great images. Hav­ing seen that inter­est, Krys­tiana and Ben had bought […]

Cherishing Precious Moments with The Meyer Family

September 8, 2017

You may rec­og­nize Aman­da and Daniel from two occa­sions: Brit­tany & Kyle’s wed­ding (where Aman­da was a brides­maid) and their anniver­sary pho­to­shoot. It had been some time since I had seen them in per­son yet it had been great to always keep in touch. Lo’ and behold, their beau­ti­ful mar­riage has grown into a fam­i­ly! I […]

We Are Fa-mi-ly! The George Family

April 20, 2017

My, how time flies and you get to see cou­ples go through their life stages from their engage­ment, their wed­ding, their mater­ni­ty and with God’s grace, a beau­ti­ful mir­a­cle of a child. I saw Rebekah and Stephan the moment that she said, “Yes!” in a roman­tic sur­prise pro­pos­al at Union Sta­tion. Since then, I had attended […]

We Are Fa-mi-ly! The Gubisi Family

April 6, 2017

When word gets around the office that I have a pho­tog­ra­phy side-gig, it’s a great rumor to be spread­ing! Hehe! My col­league, Car­ol, has always radi­at­ed her smile around the office and I was hum­bled when she asked me to cap­ture the smiles of the rest of her fam­i­ly! After our first son was born, […]

Welcome to the world, Evan James!

December 16, 2016

Evan = Fight­­er-Young War­ri­or-God is gra­cious / James = son of thun­der Tru­ly, the name could­n’t have been more per­fect for Evan James who arrived safe & sound, although a month ear­ly. For rea­sons unknown, he was grow­ing small and the best deci­sion by the O.B. was to have him “out” for clos­er and safer […]

We Are Fa-mi-ly! Introducing Baby Ashton

August 12, 2016

A month and a half had passed since I had seen Jes­si­ca and Marc for their mater­ni­ty ses­sion. It was music to my ears when I had seen Jes­si­ca announce the arrival of Baby Ash­ton! Not long after, I was hum­bled to get the call to meet her and cap­ture her at this fresh stage. What […]

Jessica & Marc ~ plusOne

August 4, 2016

A few posts back, I had got­ten togeth­er with Jes­si­ca & Marc for a real­ly quick ses­sion to cap­ture some images which they would use to sur­prise their fam­i­ly and friends about their preg­nan­cy. Fast for­ward to approx­i­mate­ly 1‑month before the due date, we got togeth­er to fin­ish off the mater­ni­ty ses­sion. Held at their cozy […]

We Are Fa-mi-ly! Introducing Baby Clark

June 17, 2016

Baby Clark had final­ly arrived! I was ecsta­t­ic to hear that he came safe­ly in Jen­nifer and Josh’s arms. As I nev­er want to pres­sure new par­ents of when to plan for the new­born ses­sion, the tim­ing was just right for all of us to get togeth­er. Clark had been sleep­ing when I arrived and […]

We Are Fa-mi-ly! Introducing Baby Isabella

April 14, 2016

She had final­ly come. It was sur­re­al to get a call from Ash­ley and Joel about a month after their mater­ni­ty ses­sion, let­ting me know that Baby Isabel­la had final­ly arrived! I was due to head back to their home and how won­der­ful it was to see these new par­ents beam­ing with joy and shar­ing with […]

We Are Fa-mi-ly! The Douglas Family

February 25, 2016

“…and God said to them, “Be fruit­ful and mul­ti­ply…” — Gen 1:28 Caris­sa and Patrick took the part of their wed­ding vows seri­ous­ly when they accept­ed “… chil­dren lov­ing­ly from God, and (will) bring them up accord­ing to the law of Christ and his Church.” Hav­ing a large fam­i­ly, how­ev­er, was already their heart’s desire even […]

We Are Fa-mi-ly! The Belo Family

January 7, 2016

When­ev­er I’m asked to take pho­tos of friends whom I admire, I’m both hum­bled and excit­ed to see them at the ses­sion. As I’ve got­ten to know them through one of my grooms­men, Moses, who is cousins with Oliv­er (the hus­band and father of this fam­i­ly), I know of their many accom­plish­ments. Aside from their children […]

A Year in Review: 2015

December 31, 2015

So the year has end­ed and I thought to share my favourite pics from the ses­sions I had. I was giv­en the hon­our of shoot­ing wed­dings, engage­ments, mater­ni­ty ses­sions (some for cou­ples whose wed­dings I had shot pre­vi­ous­ly), and short­ly after, the grace to meet the baby that grew inside the moth­er’s womb, fam­i­ly sessions, […]

A Day in a Life of Emery

July 23, 2015

This was the funnest, most cre­ative fam­i­ly ses­sion yet. Edgar and I go way back…high school. He was a grade old­er, yet being both in the visu­al arts streams, he was tru­ly some­one I looked up to (and not because he was any­where near taller than me *inside j/k!*!). From his draw­ings to his paintings […]
