T&R Maternity Shoot

I’ve been itching to use Shops on Don Mills for a shoot.  I really like the open space, the California feel, and the restaurants are good times too.  So when T&R asked us to do a maternity shoot – I was stoked that they like this location too.    The shoot was fun times although it was a little tricky to get little L to stay in one spot AND look like he was having a good time.  R – next time I see a truck coming at you, I’m not saying squat brother =)

Here are some of our favorite pics from the session.  Since we’ve been crazy busy with shoots and edits we’ve been a little behind on the blogging, so congrats again on the new edition!

Your friend, Leon

L+J Maternity Session + 1 Little Sneak Peak =)

A few months back I spoke to J on the phone and we worked out the details on the maternity shoot with him and his wife.  I was pretty excited since they are friends of Janet and Scot (my last wedding post) and the plan was for me to meet them at the wedding before our session.  Of course, plans sometimes change especially when mother nature is calling the shots.   I got an email from J one day asking if I could pop by the same night because this little guy was ready to come out….So I headed over that afternoon to make sure we got the shots….I must say L was totally relaxed for someone who ended up having their little guy that same night …  L&J super congrats on the new addition!  Here are just a small handful of pics from our maternity session… + one little sneak peak pic from our newborn session =)  … more to come!

Thanks again for having us document these two special events. L – looking back at the pics, I’ll say it again.. you look stunning!!!

Your Friend,

Leon



Congrats again =)

N+L & Little E Maternity Photo Session

N looks fantastic for a mother to be – super fantastic.  When Gi and I arrived in the morning to start off this session, we both agreed on two things.  One, how good looking the couple was and two, how super cute their son is (love that blazer dude!).   For me it was great to see N after all these years and it’s great to see she has a beautiful family and is expecting another one.

Little E took a bit to warm up to the camera but he soon forgot about us as long as there was a phone/shovel nearby.   We seemed to wear him out though as he knocked out by the end of day.  As for N&L, they are naturals.   We can’t wait till the newborn arrives to meet the new addition to your family and to get some pics of the new baby.  As always, I’ll let the pictures do the talking. Here are just a small handful of images from our session.  Thanks again N&L – enjoy!

Your Friend,

Leon

Just a few more weeks to go. Nirvana + Levon Maternity Shoot

There is a pretty cool story of how I met this couple. But before I get into the details, I really want to thank Kathleen for recommending this photo session to Levon as a gift idea for Christmas.  We are always excited when people want to “gift us” for lifestyles sessions to their friends.  Anyway.. Merci – Obrigado – Gracias again Kathleen =)

So my wife thinks I am way too chatty since I tend to talk up a storm with everyone I meet. I dunno, I guess I just really love meeting new people.  So last summer I remember hanging out at my friend’s house down the street from us and when he went in to grab me a drink I walked over to his neighbour.  This was because two things caught my eye about him 1) His s-c-h-w-e-e-t Audi and 2) His fancy portable Dyson vacuum.  So we started to chat about his car and the vacuum (as he was cleaning his car) and he introduced me to his wife.   When I got home I told Gi about the car and the Dyson..  a few days later I got the Ok to buy the Dyson… Still waiting for the OK on the Audi…sigh..hint hint gi???

Now here is the small world part, when the holiday season rolled around I got an email asking about “gifting us” for a maternity session.   We went back and forth via emails, and finally decided to meet up to finalize the details…and yes, you guessed it! … it was ironically my friend’s neighbour!  Good times!   (See Gi.. perfect example of how my curse is a gift in life.. ha!~)

The session was a blast… Gi and I had tons of fun.  As you can see, both Levon and Nirvana are naturals in front of the camera.  This session was pretty cool too since a good friend of ours lent us one of his personal classic furniture pieces to accent Nirvana’s belly  – Thanks Mike!

Gi and I can’t wait till the little one arrives to capture some newborn pics  =)

Thanks, Leon & Gi
