What a gorgeous family - Family B!

I met mom S last year when we did J's newborn session. It's not a habit for me to ask for mom or dad's profession (nor do I remember most of the time).. but I remembered hers. Well, a lot of girls dream of being a ballerina, but I personally do not know anybody who is.. until mom S! :) How cool is that? :)  Glad to see you and the boys again and thankful for the weather that cooperated just enough for us to finish our fall session! :)

Winter to Fall.... ;) -- Back to blogging!

Well, Well... I haven't blogged in 9 months! Whoa!! Way too long!  And what a timely comeback to blog about one of my favorite clients. Met mom and dad at their maternity session in 2010! Newborn session shortly after... cake smash in between.. and 2 years later a beautiful fall session with a 2 year old! :) Great seeing you all again!! :) And Thank you for allowing me to be part of your lives and having that special role of capturing your family and seeing L grow! :)

Strong Kathy.. {Mississauga Photographer}

Most people who contact me want to have a picture for a milestone in their family/child's life.. a newborn, 1st year cake smash, baptismal pics.. or maybe a holiday celebration - Easter, Christmas, etc..

Last December, however, I got an email from Kathy who wants to book a session of her and her 8 year old daughter. Not due to a birthday or a holiday... But as she said "... to remember this time before my chemo and before my physical being transforms.. hair loss, etc.."

Kathy lost her mom to breast cancer in 2008. He also lost his dad in November 2011 to colon cancer. She said that she is at WAR with Cancer and that she won't let it beat her!  A woman full of strength! You can read her strength and positive attitude in her emails!

Thanks for allowing me to be part of your journey in fighting Cancer! You are in my thoughts and prayers!

.... and of course with the entire family!

Gift of a Portrait Session.. | Milton Family Photographer

I don't really advertise that I sell gift cards but after working on this session, I thought what a great gift to get a gift of memories! A friend (and client) of mine asked me early this year if I sell gift cards.. She said she's been looking to get a gift for a family friend but couldn't really think of anything to give them. Recipient called me last month to book the family session, and was happy to meet this beautiful(and busy) family of 5!  While editing these I thought.. what a great gift to give and get.. Family "D", I hope I was able to capture the love and your 'life' in the fall of 2011! :)

First the kids.. :) ... the non-stop E! :)

... the handsome "N", who had to be attached to mommy at all times! :)

... and little miss gorgeous E! She was the star of the shoot.. All smiles and just very sweet! :)

... I can see that she's already daddy's little girl! :)

.. and mommy's too! :)

... and finally, the entire crew.. :)

The girls -- Mom & 2 daughters! | Milton family photographer

What a gorgeous afternoon last Sunday.. And I almost can't believe there are still lots of "fall colours" captured in this session.. I thought for sure the leaves will be all gone..  I'm glad they are still around! Hoping for atleast another week of nice weather as I still have a few fall sessions left to do..

So, here they are... Mommy A and the girls! V is  8 and J is 13! V wanted people to guess where her shoes area.. She said for sure people won't be able to guess! :) I love her personality, such a sweet and funny girl! :)

And my favorite 'fun' shot! :) 

 Big sis J.. So calm, cool(according to mom) and sweet! :)

.. I guess you know now whose boots are hers! :)

... big sis is now too cool for kisses! ;)

 ... and little miss V, is 100 paces ahead of us at all times.. :) Would love to get some of her energy! :)

.. beautiful J!

... The geese loves V! :)

... and what a lovely smile! :)

... Mom said this is such a precious and pivotal time for the girls.. One turning tween... and the other going to high school next year. This was a 'this weekend or never' session! :) I'm glad we were able to fit it in! :)

... Thanks for the nice afternoon!! :)

Beautiful Marisa! | Mississauga Seniors photography

I met Marisa a few years ago and she was what seemed like a little girl then... And now, she has grown into a beautiful lady! Marisa is a dancer and is very much into arts. She is in her senior year and what a better way to capture this special time in her life.. than a private photo session with her..  It's not your typical senior portrait with a curtain backdrop kinda session.. But a more personalized one where she was able to be herself. 

I hope I was able to capture you well, Marisa! I had fun at our session!
