TORONTO FASHION PHOTOGRAPHER: TORONTO STREET STYLE HOLIDAY SHOOT

toronto fashion photographer

Creating compelling fashion photography concepts for my clients is always a thrill. I love the challenge of cooking up something unique that suits current marketplace trends while also remaining on brand for my client. I love creating a story through images that captures personality and allows a viewer to get lost in a dream at the same time.

When I pitched this holiday street style concept and got the green light to proceed, my heart literally sang! Why? Because the streets are full of magic at this time of year! It was a cold and snowy four hours in Toronto, racing against fading light and bustling holiday shoppers, but we came away with some truly special moments. {Model: Jem Castor} (more…)

TORONTO NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY: A QUIET NEWBORN SESSION AT HOME
