M&M’s Baby Bump / Family / Maternity / Lifestyle Session

Michelle and Murray wanted to be adventurous and be in the midst of some tall yellow grass (none of us had any clue what as to what they’re really called) near the countryside, so we went on a bit of a journey trying to find the perfect spot. And of course, trekking randomly through the wild outdoors means potentially meeting insects and other wildlife, but they powered through it all and we came away with some great images!

Michelle also rocked her Henkaa Robin’s Egg Blue Maxi Convertible Dress! You’ve probably seen these “infinity” Henkaa dresses worn by bridesmaids at weddings, but it turns out that these dresses are so versatile that they’re great for maternity wear too!

I usually recommend scheduling your maternity session somewhere between week 30 and week 34 of the pregnancy so that mom still feels relatively comfortable and so that she can show off that beautiful baby bump she’s been working so long and hard on growing! I can’t wait to finally see their little daughter face-to-face in a few short months! So, if you’re looking to capture your “baby bump”, don’t delay! Book your maternity session today :)

P.S. If you’re feeling insecure about your body and the way you look, I guarantee that this article will be of great encouragement to you.

Heidi and Ming-Yun’s Engagement Session – Toronto Wedding Photographer

Their story starts with Ming leaving his family in sunny, hot California to live in Rochester, New York and continue his studies. But of course, he had no idea that was what was in store for him there! I mean, why would someone willingly leave California? Apparently, “to meet his future wife”! :)

Before Heidi moved to New York for school, her sister, Amy, mentioned that there was a tall and handsome man in Rochester that she simply had to meet! Matchmaker Amy had told Ming about Heidi too. Armed with his new found knowledge, he did a bit of research through social media and realized that Heidi was gorgeous! But he was determined to keep his level of excitement discrete ;)

In December 2013, Ming flew home to California to see his family and brought Heidi with him so that she could meet his parents. He had planned a full-day adventure at The Monterey Bay Aquarium and a few other places around town. As sunset approached, they went to Carmel Beach, laid out a blanket, and found a nice quiet spot on the sand overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Ming took his guitar out of its case and sang “Seven Wonders” from the Broadway musical, Catch Me If You Can. If you’ve never heard the lyrics to this song … it’s the ultimate swoon song! He got down on one knee and she said “Yes”! :)

P.S. Thanks for doing a spectacular job with Heidi’s hair for her e-session, Suzie! :)

Toronto Wedding Photographer USB Key Boutique Packaging

I’ve been debating about whether or not to make the switch from DVD’s to USB keys for a while now, but haven’t found a boutique packaging option that I “love” yet. So I’ve decided to experiment with something new for my next 5 couples and see how well it works!

You will have the opportunity to receive your wedding (and engagement session) images delivered in this engraved keepsake maple wood box with matching USB key. Slide the box open and you’ll be greeted with a surprise selection of 50 4″x6″ Kodak Professional Enudra Metallic Paper photographic prints too! You simply have to see these prints in person — they are ultra-sharp, display spectacular 3D depth and dimensionality, and shine with such rich colour and contrast while keeping skin tones looking natural.

Contact Chris to book your 2014 / 2015 wedding today! :)
