Christine and Jonathan’s Cluny Bistro / Distillery District Restaurant / Cherry Beach Engagement Session – Toronto Wedding Photographer

As self-professed “food enthusiasts” (apparently that’s different from being a “foodie”!), Christine and Jonathan wanted their engagement session to reflect that common interest. After narrowing down a few options, they chose Cluny Bistro and Boulangerie, a restaurant located in The Historic Distillery District. Speaking of their food adventures together, they first got to know each other while at one of the many Toronto summer food festivals too!

Jonathan wanted to incorporate a few of Christine’s favourite things into the surprise proposal, so on their 2-year dating anniversary, he stuffed the trunk of his car full of balloons, picked up some delicious Korean food from Galleria for a picnic, and drove to Niagara Glen (in the Niagara Falls region). As they reached the scenic lookout, Jonathan knelt down, asked Christine that life-changing question, and she said “Yes”!

Newborn Baby Family Spring Indoor Home Session – Toronto Wedding, Portrait, Lifestyle & Event Photographer

There’s something indescribably breathtaking, remarkable, and wonderful about holding a newborn baby in your arms. They have a distinctive smell, a signature cry, and you could spend hours just looking at how unique their little fingers, toes, eyes and nose are! Somehow, they’re incredibly weak, yet astonishingly strong; they’re fragile and frail, yet solid and flexible; able to bring comfort, yet exasperating, all at the same time.

What a joy to finally meet 8-day old baby S! (Take a look at mommy and daddy’s maternity “baby bump” session.)
This definitely brought back some great memories of when my own children were small enough to swaddle into little burritos :)

As the old saying goes, “Don’t blink. They grow up so fast!” It is so very true: “The days are long, but the years are short”.
Don’t miss out — book your newborn, children, maternity, or family session today!

Lucy and Chung’s Winter Indoor Maternity Family Session – Toronto Wedding, Portrait & Event Photographer

I love when we’re able to integrate unique and personal elements into a session and sometimes you only get access to that when you’re home (there’s no place like “home sweet home”)! It’s amazing to think about the amount of work involved in the preparation and the anticipation of the arrival of a baby — home changes to become a totally different place than what it was before. There’s something intangible about home: it feels safe, secure, and “just right”. Excited to meet their little monkey soon :)
