I met up with this fun family from Oakville in a fun neighbourhood in Toronto called Liberty Village. It was a warm September evening and we had such a fun time exploring all the cute areas of this neighbourhood. I have photographed N since he was a newborn. It's so fun to see clients return to get updated portraits.
The S Family
The S family chose to have their first family portrait session during a beautiful October evening. We chose High Park for this outdoor location and it didn't disappoint. With the beautiful light and fall colours, we couldn't help but get amazing photographs. Little man was the best behaved 3 year old I have ever met!
The K Family
I met up with this beautiful family on a warm fall evening at Kew Beach, Toronto for their outdoor family photo session. This sweet little gal is totally adored by her parents and it was so fun to capture their sweet bond. The beach is such a fun location for an outdoor family photo shoot!
