Spring – New Beginnings

Hello Focus Friends!

After what feels like a very long winter, I can feel spring on the horizon!

We have many exciting things coming up for spring, starting with The Baby Show at the Enercare Centre on April 6 and 7. Come visit us at booth 110. We will have show specials and giveaways, and would love to see you and your friends. https://thebabyshows.com/toronto/spring/

This season of change and re-growth is also a great time to make sure that your memories are preserved. While digital photographs are wonderful, and we can scroll through them at any time, they are not a secure way of saving your photos. Unfortunately, technology is not foolproof. Don’t fret! We can help! Come spend some time with us picking out your favourite photos and printing them, so you never have to worry about losing your memories when technology changes overnight.

Did you know when you book a session with us, you can customize your session to match your décor, style, childs name even.  From props to digital composites, we strive to make each session a unique and incredible experience.

There are still a few spaces available for sessions this month, and a select few in the spring, so if you’ve been thinking about maternity photos, newborn photos, family photos, milestone photos, or that special session, act quick!

That is it for now, but we have some more exciting ideas in the works. Stay tuned!  

I look forward to seeing you next month at the Baby Show.

Newborn Photography Trends and Styles

Happy 2019 Everyone!

I get asked at almost every session where I get my props, outfits and headbands/hats for the custom sets.  It’s not such a straight answer obviously because it ranges from local vendors, vendors over seas, antique shows, other photographers and even big box store. Homesense and Michaels is actually one of my favourite places to visit. It’s also a great way to see what trends and colour palettes are coming for the next season.  Fabricland is a great source to make your own outfits, banners which I love to do for my cake smashes.  Even Indigo is fantastic for pillows, decor, accents, and even baby gifts!

I found a great article that says: For 2019, there is greater interest in biophilia–emphasizing the relationship between humankind and nature, and the connections between the two. Natural, organic materials–such as wood floors, stone, and daylight and plant life–remind us of the exterior and brings the outside and nature, in. We are machine- and technology-driven society, but nostalgic about past processes and handiwork, so opportunities for custom Millwork and crafted materials are very important.”—Angie Lee (https://www.elledecor.com/design-decorate/trends/g23550602/design-trends-2019/)

This couldn’t be more true to my art. It is right up my wheelhouse of style I try and achieve at every session. Muted tones, layers and textures!! YES!

This year, I am going to concentrate on exactly that trend; bringing in some more natural and genuine materials. Flowers, woods, even some metals. It’s going to be stunning, having more depth, more life and taking it all in with a deep breathe.   I am still staying true to my current style, ensuring the “subject” aka baby and family is the true Focus and don’t get lost in translation.

To the start of a new year, a new page in your 2019 book! I’m a phone call, email away… I’d love to meet you or see you again. It would be an honour to freeze some of those moments and fill your pages with you.

Spreading the love for local vendors:

For the “Love of Art” – Newmarket Newborn Photography

It’s been a busy new quarter at Focus Studios! With our exciting move to Newmarket and spring in the air, we’ve been diligently working at refreshing and updating our fresh new painted walls with beautiful new products.

While redesigning and hanging the new studio galleries, I recognized as a photographer and as a parent, there’s nothing more sentimental than seeing photographs displayed proudly of my adorable little clients and my own children around the studio. It’s not just the ‘Love of Art’, it’s the love of our family. Creating pieces that capture both sentiments is an incredible feeling, and watching my clients open their new wall pieces, and flipping through their new albums is such a rewarding part of my journey as a photographer.

Focus Studios is excited to announce our ‘Love of Art’ promotion through March.
25% off any printed item listed in our new pricing/product guide!

Let me help you design the perfect gallery wall, create a beautiful heirloom album to enjoy for years to come, or print the perfect canvas gallery wraps for Mother’s Day just around the corner.

Looking forward to hearing from you and seeing your artwork displayed!
