Fall portraits don’t always need to show fall colours…While we did capture some images of the children playing in the leaves, my favourites from this session are the portraits on the beach. The Beach in Toronto is a fabulous spot for children’s portraits. The expansive horizon over the water, the sand and large rocks provide such a great backdrop for portraiture. It was a beautiful fall day…and I love the blue gray tones from the rocks and hazy sky.
In these portraits we focus on the kids and their expressions…and how cute are they?
The next few images were taken on the Beach…I love how all the colours pop against our monochromatic background.

Included in all of our portrait sessions is a pre-consultation either here in the studio or by phone for my out of town clients. This pre-consultation is very important for the entire creative process as well as to help you prepare for you portrait session. At our pre-consultation we give you our JKP Studio Welcome Kit which is filled with all of the information that you need to prepare for your portrait session and to help guide you through our studio’s most popular products and wall gallery layouts.
Many of our clients also ask for suggestions for what to wear. We always recommend clothing that compliments who you are as a family, that also fits in with the environment where the session is taking place and that coordinates with the home where the final images will be displayed. Really, your style should be as unique as your family. Kids and babies can be a bit bolder with their colour and style. It’s always a great idea with kids to show off their fun style with casual clothes which also keeps the kids comfortable. This is important so that I can capture natural expressions of their real personalities. I love the clothing that the kids wore in this session. They are super cute right down to their colourful sneakers.
As you know from reading my blog, I love photographing kids both in the studio and on-location. I am really so honoured to capture the moments, little details, real expressions & personalities of the kids that I photograph.
The goal for any of our portrait sessions is to create stunning art for display in your home and keepsakes to last a lifetime. I have had over 8 years of experience photographing children, babies and families. I have also honed my skills during this time in designing wall galleries and portrait displays for my clients. We include this service in our in-studio ordering & portrait design consultation. We offer suggestions for wall galleries, custom framing and more to ensure that you will have beautiful art that will compliment your style and is ready to hang in your home. As an added feature, I am also available for in-home consultations to help with positioning your art, display and lighting. I absolutely LOVE decorating; and especially with portrait art. It is the images of our family & kids that we display in our house that make it our home.
“Capture your love & Cherish it forever”….you have seen this phrase before if you follow my blog, or receive my newsletters. I wholeheartedly believe in the importance of printed photographs in documenting our story & our life. These photographs will become part of our family heirlooms. They capture the beautiful moments in our lives that will be cherished forever.
