Working with Esther of This Wild Heart has been such a joy because I’ve gotten to know her as a friend along the way. I recently photographed her partnership with JJ Cole as she and her family explored different neighbourhoods in Toronto, from the west to the east end. She’s put together a guide on Where to Visit in Toronto with Little Ones with indoor and outdoor places to play and explore, as well a list of family-friendly restaurants.
Here are a few highlights:
They started at Brodflour, a bakery in Liberty Village who bakes fresh sourdough in-house.
Next, a visit to Riverdale Farm, a farm in the city, to see the animals
Last stop, the famous rainbow mural tunnel in the Don Valley.
Tina and Jon wanted to have their family photos taken before the newest member of their family arrived. It’s truly special to be able to document a person’s life stages. I remember when I took their maternity photos the first time around. They were waiting for baby #1 who was on her way and now she’s is about to be a big sister.
While I’m excited to meet baby #2, I have to admit I just love hanging out with baby #1 :)
A few months ago, Angela and Tim were eagerly awaiting the arrival of the newest member of their family. They've recently welcomed their baby boy, James, and wanted to remember these precious newborn moments with photos.
James was perfect during our time together. We aimed to start the photos after he was fed so that he would be comfortable and I think it worked :)
Roy and Esther celebrated their third wedding anniversary and it's an extra special one because it's the first one after welcoming the newest member of their family. While their little one was spending time with grandparents, they snuck away for the afternoon to mark the occasion with celebratory mimosas and a lifestyle photo session.
As they navigate through parenthood for the first time, Esther shares 3 Tips to a Healthy Relationship After Having a Baby which can be a challenge, but hopefully her insight will help others as they go through a similar experience.
Happy anniversary, friends!
