My family and I recently moved to Yonge and Steeles. We needed a bigger space for our crazy (but cute) growing toddler. Even though I miss downtown living and window-shopping walks; even though we feel far far away from everything (but closer to a lot of my clients!), I'm still super happy about this move because of THIS. It's small, humble, quaint, but it will do the trick, times a hundred! I tried my best to make my home studio as cozy as possible for all the squishy babies, tired parents, and excited siblings to feel comfortable. Take a look at what it's like as of now, it still needs a few more final touches. If you were thinking of getting portraits of your little one updated, now's a great time! And as my painted canvas below says, I'm sending out lots of sleepy vibes (and giggle vibes too for the older ones hehehe)

Our gender neutral outdoor baby shower

About a year ago we had a shower/picnic for our baby on the way! I can't believe how fast time flies. While reminiscing and looking back on the photos taken by both myself and my wonderfully talented friend from Yasmin Al-Samarrai Photography, I decided to post a blog about it :)

Back then we didn't know the sex of the baby (notice how mommy guessed right?). I look at myself and my partner in these photos and I think "they have no idea what's coming!" It has been so tough yet so rewarding being a mom. And what an emotional roller-coaster too! 

I think the baby shower turned out great; lots of little details, a paint your own onesie station, "wear your guess" pins, and personal picnic baskets! So if you're planning your baby shower this summer or fall, here are some photos of ours that may or may not spark your imagination! Enjoy :)

A little break from the usual...

On such a beautiful day on the long weekend I felt inspired by my parent's yard and all the little things that grow.
