From Bump to Baby.

So I’ll give you a little dialogue in the life of the Leon and the Gi’ster  the husband and wife team here… typical day of my non corporate life in our studio:

Gi’ster – Have you posted any of C+B + baby C pics?

Leon -  Pics are done babes … just designing a album for them

Gi’ster -  that wasn’t the question… have you posted them?  You know.. Baby C going to be walking soon if you don’t post the pics…

Leon – Well.. I’m not sure if they want me to post pics of their son…

Gi’ster – have you asked?

Leon – Oh yeah.. I could do that…

So if your reading this post, that means C+B gave me the go ahead, which I’m so happy for as we’re always proud to showcase our work.   Especially when our clients are one of our closest friends. So how happy are we for C&B?  We couldn’t be happier and their son couldn’t be cuter.  As a documenter of life… I’m honoured to show these captures of our friends from bump to baby.

Love Uncle Leon and Aunt Gi.

Any moment now…. Kathy & Eric’s Maternity Session

I mentioned this before in another posting that being a photographer is something I absolutely love, it has become a part of me. But being able to capture the life events such as  marriage and newborn is what truly brings meaning to my life and allows me to leave a small imprint on the lives of others.  This especially holds true when it comes to friends.   This year has been the year that many of our close friends have started their families and it’s amazing to see the joy all around us.   When Kathy asked me to capture her and Eric for this session, I was pretty stoked.. cause it was a nice chance to really have some fun and keep thing easy breezy while capturing this time in their lives.

Like the rest of our friends and family, we’re totally excited to meet the little guy… so, have some pepper.. go for a walk (according to google) and to get a move on bringing baby E to this world =)  Here are a few pics from our day guys!  Much love!

Lifelong friends…

I am lucky in life to have a number of lifelong friends.  Friends that you know have your back and you know you will always have theirs.   Helen is one of those people, I have known her since high school and we have grown up together.   We have gone from our insecure teenage years to university to young professionals to marriage and now watching her go through the joys of parenthood.

It is a rare treasure to have her in Tdot nowadays as Helen and her hubby Enoch normally live on the other side of the country.  So since they were here for the big SS wedding, we got a chance to snap some pics.   She was in last days where she could fly but Helen looked great and was just enjoying her pregnancy.   We can’t wait to meet little bean bean :p

Fast forward 9 months and today’s the day!

Gina and Sam are all about exciting milestones.  Last year Gi and I waited until the end of the year to have the honour to capture their wedding in gorgous Punta Cana, Dominician.  Fast forward 9 months and I get to see our awesome friends again and this time I get to capture the both of them…when they are expecting!  So again… exciting milestone as today’s the day!

Happiness can’t even begin to describe how I feel for them both.  Gina and Sam, I’m forever honoured to continue to capture these beautiful milestones in your life.  Like the rest of your friends and family… Gi and I can’t wait to meet the new addition and capture some newborn pics.

Your Friend,  Leon

Jennifer & Stephen – Few More Weeks To Go //Maternity Session

I think one of the best assets we have in our repertoire is the ability to adapt to our surroundings and know what to shoot.  For weddings and engagement sessions … we always plan out all the locations…but with lifestyle sessions we must work with what we get.  For Jennifer & Stephen’s maternity photo session…they wanted to use their condo… and man oh man…what a gorgeous space it was.   It was my first time meeting the couple... and I think the first thing that came out of my mouth aside from congrats… was how awesome their condo is.  I felt like a prospective buyer… as the place was so nice… and the décor was perfect.   OK… main attraction… Jennifer and Stephen are such great people.  They where awesome throughout this session and I enjoyed just hanging out.  Here are just a handful of images from our session.  Big thank you to you both… Gi and I can’t wait to meet your little one for the newborn session  =)

S+F+C+R Maternity and Family Session

There is nothing that makes me more happy than seeing my close friends and family do well in life.   When S contacted me, I was more then thrilled about this session for a handful of reasons.  Doing what we do, the one part that Gi and I miss is seeing our friends more as it is often hard to make that time available.    So when my close friends S&F, whom I have not seen in forever, asked to capture some maternity pics, I was super excited.   I mean not only did I get to see them but also had the opportunity to spend some time together capturing some pics of their gorgeous family.

When I look back at the stress free times of my life (aka.. no mortgage  or bills) it was back in the Ward days walking the halls.. and working out… (if there is any Mary Ward people reading this.. they would get it what I’m saying) and that kinda my Ward curriculum sums up and  how I met F…Lol!

Nostalgic flashbacks aside… I’m super happy to see that life is good for my friends F&S and they have a gorgeous family + another one on the way.  I want wish you guys all the best with the new addition and see you guys soon (as my summer holidays begins in the winter =) . Here are a few pics from our session.

Much love guys!

Your Friend,  Leon
