TORONTO FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER: MY FAVOURITE 2016 FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY MOMENTS

toronto family photographyI have this personal motto that translates really well into my professional life — “You regret the photos that you don’t take.” Personally, I have deeply regret not having more photographs of myself and my family life when I was a teenager. This was before the time of selfies and cell phones and during that awkward time of life where you avoid your own reflection as much as possible. So whenever a family contacts me for a family session and I genuinely thrilled! (more…)

Above are just a few of my favourite engagement moments from 2016. How I wish I could share them all, but I’m afraid that if I did my heart would explore. (more…)

I love the cosiness of it all – a new family welcoming their sweet bundle of joy in a cocoon of love.
