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!

Gifting this surprise family shoot for his wife’s birthday

H contacted me about setting up a family shoot as a surprise for his wife’s birthday. This was super thoughtful of him but I did warn him just from past experience with surprise shoots, he should give a little warning or make sure his wife would be ready for the camera somehow. We have done a few shoots in the past where the partner was totally surprised (good thing) but so not ready for the camera (bad thing) =)

On the morning of their shoot, I met the whole family at their beautiful house.  H and his wife have 2 adorable daughters.  During the shoot it was sweet seeing the whole family interact and for me it was fun capturing the things they do in this family lifestage.   The whole family was super comfortable in front of the camera which really made for fun candid pics of everyone.  It was awesome that we got to wrap up our shoot with the whole family practicing yoga… super cute stuff.

I want to sincerely thank our mutual friend Winnie for the warm introduction. I want to thank H for coordinating this shoot and having me capture this day. Here are some pics from your gift to your wife.  Thanks again and enjoy!

 

Your Friend, Leon

Growing up so quickly

It’s almost a year since I’ve seen this cute dude…

I’m lucky enough to capture and see various families on a yearly basis … and it’s just awesome seeing the kids grow up and the family grow each year too.  The last time I saw this cute dude was when he was one week new and spoken like the old uncle… “I can’t believe how much he’s grown”.   I met my friends K & A bright and early for this session and we worked around the farm grounds to capture some fall pics of them.  It was bit a chilly that morning, but the three of them totally made the best of the scenario.  We went inside the farm to warm up for a bit and captured some shots of cute baby A.

To my friends K&A, thanks so much for having me capture your adorable son + all of you together.  Little A is so cute man… and hopefully Gi and I will see you guys over the holiday season.  Here are a few pics from our shoot.

Double the cuteness

D and her husband really know how to handle their kids like pros. We wanted to make sure that we didn’t run into rain so the parents were so quick with theirs kids and at the same time ... they have such a genuine happy fun vibe to them while managing their adorable family.

We started off our shoot at Forsythe Farms using the first thing we saw which was this awesome tractor.   Capturing this family was really a joy for me since they were up for anything and helped position their kids anywhere we thought it was cool.  I loved the fact that they brought matching Toronto Maple Leaf Jerseys for the kids to wear. We worked our way to the back of the farm and we wrapped up just in time before the rain hit.

 

Before we get into the pics, I sincerely want to thank our friend Nelson and also a few other mutual friends of ours that referred us to this wonderful family.  And of course, I want to thanks D& M and their adorable sons J&N for this fun session.  Here are some pics from our shoot.

 

Your friend, Leon Chai
