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!

Sweet Sarah |Toronto Newborn Baby Photographer

A new blog has been added to the family! | Toronto family photographer

So many times I have wanted to write about my children, Mommyhood and other related topics on this blog. I keep having to remind myself that this is meant to be a blog for my photography, and while, sure, a post every now and then about my absolutely adorable and perfect children is just fine, the focus of this blog must remain on photography and my wonderful, special and amazing clients!

As such, I bring you my second blog – Life of a Mom Tog. If you’re interested in Mommy issues and my adorable and perfect children, please head on over and follow that blog! But please don’t stop following this blog – the content will be different (for the most part…I still plan on showcasing my over-documented children on here every now and then) and you’ll get to see plenty of photography over here! Why not follow both blogs?! 🙂

My first maternity session in Toronto!

Rim lighting, black and white belly photo.

Beautiful Mommy, Jordanna came to my studio with her family for a maternity session. This was my first maternity photo shoot in Toronto, so I was excited, but a little nervous because I wasn’t able to work with the beautiful … Continue reading

Happy Hallowe’en!!

The latest and greatest – Superhero birthday party invitation!

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

2 Moms, 2 Dogs, 2 Babies… and a whole lot of family!

After moving to Toronto, my friend, Ashleigh was quick to ask me to photograph her gorgeous family! I’ve known Ashleigh since I was about 15 years old – we played hockey together (yes, ice hockey and yes I realize I … Continue reading

Firsts

Two posts in one day! That’s a first (I think)! One post with the spotlight on my little Charlotte, and now a post with the spotlight on my little Paityn.

Last week, Paityn started preschool! This is actually her second year at preschool, but first year at preschool in Toronto. Paityn has always LOVED being around other kids! When I dropped her off for her first day of preschool in California last year, she was only 2 years old and all I got was a wave goodbye and off she went with no fear. She was enrolled in preschool two days a week and started at about 8am and didn’t finish until 5:30pm, but she never wanted to leave when we went to pick her up, despite the long day. By June, Paityn was going to school three times a week, but if it were up to her, she would have been there every day.

Fast forward to July… we move to Toronto and Paityn starts summer camp 5 mornings a week. Again, I was pretty much invisible when I dropped her off, as she ran off to play with her friends. However, when I went to pick her up, I always got a huge smile and happy “Mommy!!!” greeting as she ran towards me to give me a hug.

Fast forward to last week when she started preschool in Toronto, 3 full days a week… she was happy to go to school, but not as excited as she had once been. This morning when I dropped her off, she didn’t want me to leave and held tight to my leg. I don’t know if it’s just that the school isn’t as good (her California school was wonderful – I was sad to leave it), or she’s entering into a new stage, but whatever it was, it made me sad. I want her to love school! I’m sure she’s having a great day today and I shouldn’t worry, right?!

Here are some photos I took of Paityn last week before she went to her first day of preschool in Toronto.

Double Digits

Before I miss another month (although technically I guess I already have…), let me get my little girl’s 10 month photo up on this blog! Charlotte turned 10 months on September 1st and this photo was taken then, but yet … Continue reading

I missed a month?!?

I always say time flies, but the past two months went by so quickly that I somehow forgot to blog about my sweet little Charlotte turning 8 months old. With our big move and our incredibly busy social calendar here in Toronto, Charlotte’s 8 month photo never made it up on the blog 😦 But do not fret! I DID take her 8 month photo when she turned 8 months, and I also took her 9 month photo yesterday when she turned 9 months. Now she’s crawling, talking (seriously talking…not just babbles…she says “Dada” when she’s talking to her daddy, “Mama” when she talks to me, “Ba Ba” when she waves goodbye to people and even “Poo Poo” a couple of times) and just enjoying life to the fullest! I have never met a more happy baby and her and her big sister, Paityn light up my life every single day!

Here’s my little Charliebear at 8 months…

And here she is at 9 months showing off all 3 of her brand new teeth (which all came in the week before she turned 9 months)…

Happy 3/4 of a year, little one!
