Toronto Newborn Lifestyle Photographer | “Tastes by Jade” Newborn Session

I recently met the lovely and sweet Sarah, lifestyle blogger and creator of Tastes by Jade.

Sarah and her husband David welcomed a sweet little man into the world this September and it was a pleasure capturing her new family at their Toronto condo.

The moment I was welcomed into their home I was met with soft music, beautiful light coming in from their large windows and the sweetest little sleeping boy.

If you are expecting or know someone that is, I definitely recommend reading Sarah’s recent blog posts about her candid birth story and a real life perspective on the first 40 days as a new Mom and how family, friends can help be supportive.

David and Sarah both have an overwhelming sense of calm about them and were a pleasure to work with.

I loved working in their space and capturing new and unique angles and portraits.

The window light and white cupboards made for such a beautiful backdrop to this lovely father/son moment.

Sarah, the glow of motherhood looks absolutely natural and beautiful on you!

 A quote from Tastes by Jade blog:

 “Your heart throbs more feelings than you ever knew possible.”

I often get inquiries from families that live in urban city centres, condos and small spaces worrying that their homes are not adequate for in home newborn sessions.

I have to tell you that these are some of my favourite places to capture sessions in.

The spaces are perfectly and carefully curated and decorated to fit the families lives, lifestyle and likes. I find these spaces often tell more about the families travels, loves and treasured pieces.

I ABSOLUTELY love documenting newborns with these pieces of the family in the portrait. Sarah and David’s 900sqft condo was the perfect place to capture their growing family and sweet new addition.

Sarah, David and baby C, I am honoured that I was able to capture this truly special time in your lives with portraits of your love. I hope you look back on them with smiles and love for years to come.

2018 Bucket List Sessions

Those Fall temps have rolled in and I’m not sure about you but I’m having mixed feelings.

I definitely wasn’t ready for those cold & damp temps but I’m excited for the Holiday Season! (Christmas is my favourite!)

I’m sad to see 2017 go.

2017 was a year full of learning, growing and strengthening for me personally and for my business.

However, I’m really looking forward to 2018 and have been already been putting in lots of hours working on my 2018 business plan – adding, updating, tweaking and making sure that every client continues to have amazing experiences with Yellow Brick Road Photography and beautiful memories from our time together.

While I’m looking at 2018 – I was hoping you could help me with something? 

2018 Bucket List Sessions Newborns www.yellowbrickroadphoto.caEvery year I have sessions that I’d like to capture creatively so I create a Bucket List and put them out into the world.

Breslau Newborn Lifestyle Session

The anticipation of meeting my littlest clients is like Christmas for me.

I eagerly await the news of their birth and can’t wait to capture their sweet faces.

I just adore these sessions.

 I met Miss Mackenzie when she was still a baby bump.

Her parents captured their love and excitement during a BEAUTIFUL Sunset Beach Session. If you haven’t seen a sneak from that session, you have to do that here

With excitement I met the family in the comfort of their home to capture their Breslau Newborn Lifestyle session.

Some of my favourite portraits to capture are Daddy/Daughter moments.

Don’t these just melt your heart?

This is the look of instant love, protection and 100% adoration.
