For the past couple of years I have tried to give back by donating a family photo session to Dentonia nursery school in a silent auction. This is how I had the great pleasure to meet a lovely family of four: little Raphaelle -14 months old, her 4 years old brother Olivier and their lovely parents, Christine and Andrew. I got to spend a little bit of time with them and I truly hope I captured their personalities in a small collection of candid images. Many thanks for a fun time, enjoy the photos and hope to see you again soon! Yours, Manuela
Alex and Liz thought it would be a great idea to surprise their dad by offering him their framed portraits for Christmas. I decided to go for a creative urban shoot, therefore we met downtown Toronto and explored the area around the Art Gallery of Ontario. Despite the cold and the fairly large snow flakes coming down from the grey sky, the two girls were so easy going, up for anything and a lot of fun to be around. They even commented on the ‘impromptu’ feel of our photographic adventure. With just a general idea on how I would like the session to begin, I allowed things to unfold naturally and the inspiration to kick in while walking down the street, exploring and being drawn by particular corners and textures. I enjoyed myself and I hope Alex and Liz did as well.
Thank you for a good time and all the best in the new year!
