2020 Family Valentine’s Mini Sessions in Toronto | Valentine’s Day Gift Idea Toronto

Love it or hate it Valentine’s Day is upon us and we wanted to do something new to commemorate the occasion. This year we’re pleased to announce Gooseberry’s Valentine’s Day Mini Sessions taking place in our sunny downtown Toronto photography studio!

For our debut Toronto Valentine’s Day Mini Sessions we’re focusing on the truest of loves, which can only mean beautiful portraits of you and your dog bestie together! (We’re right, right? Our dogs are the truest of loves.)

Gooseberry’s Valentine’s Day Mini Photo Sessions are designed to be nothing but fun for pups and their people — we keep the studio calm and peaceful, we have lots of treats on hand, we shoot gently to ensure dogs are comfortable every step of the way and we guarantee heartfelt images for your final collection. And, if we do say so ourselves, these mini sessions make a wonderful Valentine’s Day gift idea in Toronto. (more…)

TORONTO PET PHOTOGRAPHER: 2017 CHRISTMAS DOG PORTRAIT FUNDRAISER FOR SIT WITH ME RESCUE

Every December (for the fourth year in a row now) I pack up my portable studio set up and travel to run a Holiday Themed Dog Portrait Photobooth to raise money for the wonderful Sit With Me Rescue. This organization works tirelessly to help dogs in need from all walks of life and it is truly a pleasure to be able to give back in some small way to a cause that is near and dear to my heart. This year I opted for a festive Tiffany blue background. A bit of artificial snow on the ground and a gorgeous custom-crafted white fire hydrant by my lovely friend and assistant Sondra, and we were ready for some holly jolly fun! Here’s a little peak at some of the results if you’re interested! (more…)

TORONTO FASHION PHOTOGRAPHER: COUPLE’S PORTRAITS IN AN ICECREAM SHOP

Why do we only get our photos taken with our significant other when we get engaged or married? What about capturing all of those wonderful everyday moments that make up our actual lives with another person? I always imagine couples looking back on portraits of themselves together in their youth when they’re retired — imagine that magical feeling that you’d get! So when the lovely Jem Castor asked if her fella could tag along on a fashion shoot, I was more than happy to run with the concept! I took them to the most darling cosy icecream parlour in downtown Toronto. They split a milkshake, sipped rich espressos and cuddled up together for a truly dreamy couple’s portrait session. Take a peek here!
