Welcome Baby A&M! Beautiful Newborn Twins

What was really sweet about this shoot was something that these pics don’t tell.  You often hear the phrase  “enjoy every minute” (esp when it comes to babies and the wedding day) but not many people do.  The feeling of walking into J&A’s home it was just that. It was such a calm and heartwarming feeling with parents whom truly enjoy every single second of this newborn phase with their beautiful daughters.

Baby A&M are adorable and having only had the opportunity to meet them for a few hours, I can definitely see each of their individual personalities already. This was a fun and cute shoot and I want to thank my new friends J&A for having me capture these sweet memories of their family. Thanks so much to you both and here are just a few pics from our shoot.

L&B Family + Cake Smash Session

Man photographing my friends L&B’s kids.. and just watching both of them interact was so entertaining.  Personally, I can’t wait till my little guy starts walking and I can imagine him playing with his big sis just like them.

This was such a fun combo shoot. We started off doing a family lifestyle shoot in Alexander Muir Park and headed back to their home after a sibling style cake smash – as it was N’s first birthday that week.   What I loved about this shoot was the easy going nature of the parents… which translated to the kids being kids… having fun and not worrying about getting messy or dirty.  I am happy that N&C got to have their cake and eat it too!

Thanks so much again to my friends L&B – great seeing you guys and playing catch up throughout our shoot.

Big Welcome to Baby E! Newborn Photo shoot

I’m so happy to meet this cute little guy and so happy for my friends J&R as well as big brother M. I loved how they had everything ready for this shoot (matching outfits, Toronto Maple Leaf stuff, room all prepped) and probably had tons more but we didn't want to over work our baby models over here.  On the other end of the spectrum of being not prepared… My wonderful wife just reminded me that I still haven't hung the pics in our son nursery and he’s now 3 months old soon…

Their newborn baby E is just the cutest and it is even cuter when seeing big brother M’s interaction with his new brother. We started off the shoot with the spotlight on baby E and worked in the family after.  Thank you so much again for setting up this shoot and I love seeing your big happy family. I’m looking forward connecting with all of you in the up coming months (which is another thank you..that I owe both of you)). Here are a few pics from our shoot.

Lots of love from the Chai Chang family of four :)

K’s First Birthday + Cake Smash

If I look back at our daughter’s first birthday party…I swear that it was more stressful then planning a wedding.  At least for a wedding… the bride and groom can be hands off (should be hands off) on the day and just enjoy. But for these birthday’s… most of the time the parents are just scrambling setting up to make things perfect and the other half of the battle is making sure the guest of honor gets in a proper nap time before their party.

I met this beautiful family for the first time on the day of their son’s party. When I walked in the party room of Seoul House, everything looked amazing.  There were so many details that went into the party. I’ve probably done as many first birthday captures as weddings and for the first time at this party… the mom and dad even decorated their son’s high chair to reflect his first birthday.

K (the birthday boy) is such a cute little man.  His party was full of events with traditional Korean outfit changes for the little guy to the Doljanchi and ending off with a smash cake.

I want to thank my new friends for having me capture this special milestone for their family. Here are just a few pics from his party. Thanks so much guys!

M’s going to be the best big brother…

I’m so happy for my friends and their upcoming baby, they’re going to have so much fun as a family of four.   For this awesome maternity shoot, we met up at their home and headed off to a provincial park that’s was right around the corner from them.   For the life of me I couldn’t remember the park’s name but this place was amazing… had animals and ton of open space, felt like we had our own private zoo to ourselves.    J (the mom) looks amazing and of course the Dad too =)  Their son is so full of energy and so much fun to take pics of.  Their newest addition is going to love have him as a big brother and of course vice versa.

I’m really thankful for this family’s support as over the years from doing shoots for them to doing some amazing shoots for their family and friends.  I’m super thankful for J’s friendship… for whatever reason, she’s been one of my first go to in telling our kids crazy birth stories – so I appreciate the big ears.  I want to wish you both a smooth, easy, fast birth and I can’t wait to meet the little baby.

6 months old!

The original date that we had planned this shoot was the exact same day that our baby boy was born… So off the bat..I want to  thank S&D for being flexible enough to reschedule.. I would have came still but my wife would have killed me =) Although I probably said this at every single stage with our daughter but 6 months is one of my favourite stages which was the same age as my friend’s beautiful daughter.

Ok.. Captain obvious over here but baby M is so, so adorable.. I swear I think she had this big happy smile in every shot I took of her … Love it.  For the shoot we kept things simple and used their beautiful home which worked out perfectly.  To my friends S&D, so great seeing you guys and little M again. Thanks always for the on going support. Here are just a few pics from ours 6 month old shoot!
