New Blogsite Awaits!! | Toronto Family Photographer

I’ve been very torn over what to do with this blog. It’s been good to me, but I finally decided that it’s time to say, “so long, farewell” to it! One of the reasons I was hesitant to give it up is because I have so many amazing followers on here!! But my style has changed and therefore so must my blog…into a fabulous new Blogsite!! So before I get an even bigger following on here, it’s time to move. I’m SUPER excited about my new blog!! It really reflects me and my current photography style! Plus it is everything all rolled into one – website, blog, client viewing area, social media buttons…it’s really quite awesome! I also have a new logo to match my new “Photography Personality”.

I have just one teeny tiny favor to ask of all of you…

It’s been quiet on this blog recently because I didn’t want to post anything new until I could post it on my new site!

Head on over to my new stomping grounds and sign up for those updates ASAP! If you’re looking at my new Blogsite from a mobile device, it may look a little different, so definitely check out the awesome desktop version when you have a spare second!

As Easter/Spring mini session time rolls around, you will notice that there are many photographers out there who offer live animals in their photo shoots – mainly bunny rabbits and baby chicks. I am not one of those photographers – … Continue reading

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!! Christmas Mini Session Showcase :)

I held one afternoon of Christmas/Holiday Mini Sessions this year and they were a huge success!! I would have loved to have done more, but our family was busy traveling across the world (i.e. to Norfolk, Nebraska to visit my husband’s family…trust me – when you start of a trip with a 3-year-old puking everywhere, followed by delayed flights, husband on crutches, long car rides and lost luggage, it definitely feels like you’re traveling across the world, minus the pretty and diverse scenery). Paityn and Charlotte had a great time with their Grandparents and Aunt, so despite the travel nightmare, it was worth the visit! I also had a couple of full sessions to shoot right around mini session time, so more days of mini sessions were not in the cards this time around. Next year I’ll do my best to keep an open schedule around the holidays 😉

It’s been an eventful last few days in Toronto, to say the least! We just bought a new house, after living with my mom for the last six months, and were all set to move on December 16th. It was a very cold move and our whole family managed to get the flu, ear infections and other illnesses so our moving timeline was dragged out by quite a bit. Eventful week! We finally moved ourselves into our house on December 20th. Things were (and are) very chaotic, but were going well nonetheless…until this massive ice storm hit and we lost power on Sunday morning. My mom still had power, so guess what…”we’re baaaaaaaaaaack, Mom”. Luckily our power was restored by the next day and we were able to move back into our new home. Unfortunately for many people in Toronto, power is still down and most likely will be by tomorrow. I feel for you, Torontonians without power! It’s not fun, especially in this frigid weather.

Hopefully these photos will add some warmth to your holidays! Here are some of my favorite photos from this year’s Christmas/holiday mini sessions!

Starting with my kiddos, Paityn and Charlotte:

School Photography…quite possibly my new fave!

One morning I went to drop my 3-year-old off at preschool and was caught off guard when her teacher asked me if I would like to take all of the children’s school photos this year! I have never taken school pictures … Continue reading

My little one’s Charlotte’s Web Farm Party was featured on Kara’s Party Ideas!!!

As some of you may have remembered me mentioning in a previous post, I may have gone slightly overboard planning my one year old, Charlotte’s first birthday party. Kara, from the website, Kara’s Party Ideas, apparently agreed with me because … Continue reading

I love the idea of having a superhero party! I’m hoping that maybe one of my girls will want one next year, but that’s thinking too far ahead I suppose. In the meantime, I made these adorable super girl and … Continue reading

SEO (aka Search Engine Optimization) is driving me up the wall!!!

When I started my photography business in LA, with very little effort I managed to rank at the top of Google search results. I have no idea how, but I did it and it was “easy”. Fast forward to June … Continue reading
