Christmas family photos with little Kiaan & Co

I have known Kiaan since he was about 1 yr old. I was delighted when his lovely parents called me up for a Christmas shoot. Kiaan is a cheerful, energetic boy who adores his Shitzhu doggy, Mika. The two of them are a real team and feed off each other’s playfulness.
Kiaan seems to take his dog walking job very seriously and, if it wasn’t for the cold, he would have kept on running with his little buddy. Very cute to watch.
Mary + Denny: thank you for allowing me another glmpse into your family life, I look forward to returning for some more tales around the fire :)

Family photos in Toronto’s High Park

Many times I feel that my camera is an extension of my soul. Emotions may often be a bit hard to convey. The lens gives me the chance to paint the world I see in my own colours. This also allows for connecting to others on a different level. It is always such a privilege!
I cherish all the opportunities my craft is offering me. I have clients turned friends and I am humble for the chance to tell their stories through images. Especially whenever I know they will be shared for generations. I photograph weddings, then the same couples with their babies, so I become part of their families.
Mona and Emon’s story is exactly this, I was fortunate to be called upon to capture their wedding down South back in 2011. We have enjoyed some wonderful moments together since. Now, their life together is even more rich due to the presence of a little,wonderful person: their daughter Layla.
She just turned 2 in August, I simply love this stage and I am honored to capture her growing up.

Enjoy these colourful fall photos we recently took in the ever picturesque High Park. I loved watching Lyla enjoy the world around her…playing with leaves, feeding ducks…ever little new detail made her giggle :)

Maternity photos in Toronto with beautiful Sherry

Photographing expecting women is truly very special and humbling. There is a particular energy around a first time mother, a sense of initiation into the realm of a different kind of love. The body is wrapped in so much mystery, anticipation, excitement, emotion.
Even though I did not have the pleasure to meet her until the shoot, Sherry is no stranger. I have photographed her husband’s brother’s wedding and growing family and was very pleased when she contacted me. We connected easily while sharing such an amazing moment in time. Due very soon, she looked gorgeous and glowing.
Sherry and Richard, I look forward to meeting your baby girl, big congratulations and all the very best!
Sincerely,
Manuela

Beautiful 2 months old Karolina Marie

Karolina Marie was born on December 31st. From now on, her family will have another beautiful reason to celebrate on New Year’s eve. Not to mention fireworks will explode all over the world on this beauty’s Birthday!

Enjoy this colourful collection we created with little difficulty as, aside from a couple of small feeding brakes, Karolina was a delight to be around and photograph. A model in the making for sure, one I look forward to seeing again very soon!
With love, Manuela.

Family photo session in wintery Toronto

I met baby Ada in October 2013 for the first time, she was 2 months old.

Newborn photography Toronto

I was absolutely delighted when her parents contacted me for a winter shoot with her. It is always such a pleasure to see families grow. Ada is now 18 months old and is a fun loving, expressive and chatty little girl.
In spite of the cold, she loves to be outside and play in the snow. Get her in a sled and she will be the happiest around!

Nupur and Mervin, thank you for allowing me to capture Ada once again and hope to see you again as she grows up!
Yours, Manuela

Family photography in Toronto

I love creating unique, playful visual records of family life. I adore capturing children’s innocence. Letting them be, so their beautiful souls can reveal themselves effortlessly. What a joy to be around them!

Elina is a wonderful 2 yrs old little girl. I loved spending time with her, following her around, watching her play. At the end, I felt rejuvenated. Not to mention how amazing it was to get a big hug from her…a gesture that warmed me up inside and reminded me of how fortunate I am for the chance of telling such lovely stories.

Many thanks to Elina’s parents Deepeka and Karna for allowing me to be around their gorgeous, young family.
They are expecting, so I am sure little Elina will have a lot of fun with her new sibling in just a few months.

E&D&K: hope to see you again soon! Best, Manuela.

An adorable baby girl: 11 months old Lyla

As a photographer, I have the privilege to capture beautiful life stories. Many times my wedding clients call me to let me know that they are expecting their first child. It is fantastic to see families grow and have the opportunity to create visual journals for them to enjoy for a lifetime.
Mona and Emon had a fabulous destination wedding 3 years ago. After having spent a week with them in Punta Cana, our connection has developed and we have remained in touch. It was with great joy to find out that they had a beautiful baby girl they named Lyla.
I recently met Mona so we could catch up with each other’s lives while sipping cold drinks on a patio. Baby Lyla was a delight to have with us: happy, playful, all smiles! She even attempted to do a little Persian dance for me, under her mommy’s  choreographic supervision.
I will let these images speak for themselves. I look forward to seeing Lyla again soon and capture some more memories for her and her lovely family.

Hugs, Manuela.

Baby photography with 6 months old Lily

Hanna and Matthew had a gorgeous wedding in the summer of 2011. A bit over two years later, baby Lily was born.
It is always an immense pleasure to see my clients’ families grow and a true privilege to be there for them and capture their beautiful life stories. I was thrilled when Lily’s parents contacted me to give me their news and book a photo session.
Meeting baby Lily was a lot of fun. She is a gorgeous red headed girl with a wonderful personality. Her face lights up when she smiles and she is a joy to have in front of the lens.

Hanna & Matthew: congratulations again on your new, lovely family. Enjoy each other for many years to come and hope to see you again soon! Hugs, Manuela.

Winter maternity photo shoot

I love it whenever I have a chance to capture such a special moment in someone’s life. It is a true privilege to share the anticipation, excitement, emotion.

These photo sessions are very unique, as there is a special kind of intimacy that develops between my client and I. We spend a quiet, peaceful time together when there is no much need for words, just tapping into a very special kind of energy. Which can be felt around the subject each and every single time. I love such gentle moments in time, when I am inspired by the new shape the human body takes, by the transformation, by life.

Debbie and Jeff, congratulations and I look forward to meeting the little one soon! Hugs, Manuela

Last time I saw baby Ada, she was in her mommy’s belly. I had the chance to meet her and decided to put a few photos together quickly, given she just turned 2 months old today!

I wanted to take this opportunity to wish her many beautiful months and years ahead and congratulate her dear parents, Nupur and Mervin, for having brought such a healthy beauty into the world.

See you all soon, big hug! M
