Summer 2009 Recent Shots/Out & About: Toronto Family Photographer

Time for a big catch-up on some recent shots from this summer…which I can’t believe is almost over!

Rebecca did some summer camp programs at the Sewing Studio on Avenue Road. For one of the camps all the girls had their hair and make-up done, so we took a few photos in the driveway next to our house (shot with the Canon 85 f1.2L lens):



Some recent, decent (except for the air bubbles!), latté art:


Got together with my photog friends at Rebecca Woods’ new studio/office. We were playing around with some off-camera flash, but these were taken in existing light. The sunset outside her studio window was too beautiful to not photograph…kind of wished we’d been out and about in the beautiful evening air shooting that night!


(Equipment Used: All of the following were taken with the Canon 50 f1.4 lens and Canon 5D. I thought I’d give it a try as it’s a much lighter option for carrying for extended periods over the Canon EOS-1D MarkIII and Canon 85 f1.2L lens combo, but the result isn’t nearly as good…but decent for the reduced weight of equipment. All of the following images were shot wide open at f1.4.)

Kids and I set off to do some back to school shopping, but first Noah had to buy a new frog:


Can’t beat the bokeh created shooting wide open!


Noah was happy as I treated him to a new Nintendo DS game, which kept him busy while his sister & I shopped:


Again, loving the bokeh:


Rebecca at a shoe shop, shopping for back-to-school shoes (wish I could have found something for Noah…no selection to speak of in the Yonge/Bloor area):


Afterward we had an ice cream break at Summer’s Ice Cream Shop in Yorkville. Especially nice as there was something Noah could have (he usually misses out on ice cream due to his peanut/nut allergy). We puzzled over the bizarrely worded sign in a dry cleaners window next to the ice cream shop:


Last week Rebecca and I went out for lunch and to run some errands. Her newly created sock monkey (made at one of her Sewing Studio camps), Fredrick, accompanied us. I think he’s just the cutest creation!:


On our journey through the Annex we came across some damage from that crazy storm we had last Thursday night:


After running some errands we stopped for lunch at Big Sushi on Bloor:


Loving their sweet potato sushi, just wish they offered a brown rice version:


Bokeh, baby, bokeh!


Loving the backlight of this shot, and the bokeh!


Rebecca is loving her new sunglasses:


Yeah! All caught up!
