Although I specialise in wedding photography, I’m really so honoured to be thought to be a Toronto family photographer as well. Often, my clients have gotten married and have moved onto their next stage of their life – having a family of their own! It’s really magical to not only witness our clients journeys through life but to capture these moments for them as well!
But actually, the way I met Chenise was through work! She had learnt that I had my own photography business while we worked in the financial district in downtown Toronto. She explained how after many attempts to take both maternity and family photos, they had never worked out in her favour.
After I moved on to pursue photography full-time, I was so glad that Chenise got in touch with me again! Before she knew it, she was now into her second pregnancy without any good family photos that she can look back and treasure. I was so happy to be able to capture these moments for her since it was probably her last time being a happy pregnant mom.
Being pregnant is such a transient time in a woman’s life and should be cherished! Kids also grow up so quickly that it’s so important to capture them in their fun-loving carefree nature. I love this session we had together at Ajax waterfront park. It is a park that Chenise and her family often visited on weekends so it was really meaningful for them. So sweet!
