Downtown Toronto - Taisa and Guilherme

I have to say that Blogging is not a thing I’m used to do it; but I also notice that I like to write. So how come I’ve never blogged before?

A week ago I went Downtown Toronto to photograph a couple of friends mine - Taisa and Guilherme. They are both also from Brazil, but got to know each other here in Toronto. It was super funny - no pressure at all. Just us and the camera - lot of buildings and different types of lights.

Graffiti Alley Toronto - Teen Session

Hellooooo everyone, how’s everybody doing? Hope you guys are ok, cause I am! :D

A few days ago I had a pleasure to photograph Tammy, she is a Brazilian teenager living here in Toronto; and it was soooo funny. I have two sisters back in Brazil and I really forgot how it is to have teenagers around - even tough they speak with me all the time. Anyways, Tammy really wanted to go to the Graffiti Alley, so here we go.

As I was talking to Tammy’s mom - Rose - we decided to let her be herself during the photoshoot. Being a teenager is strange for everyone, its a really important time in our lives, so why not register the way it is? She was super nervous in the beginning, but after a few minutes she was already giving ideas hahahah

See you guys.



Cherry Blossoms

Cherry Blossom season IS COMING!

Yeah, that’s me folks!

Yeah, that’s me folks!

Not long ago tho. My hair is now longer but I still have the same chubby cheeks..

Did you guys know that the Cherry Blossom last a week to a week and a half only? Here in Toronto we can see them at a few locations:

High Park -

Starting this year, the High Park will no longer permit cars inside the park during the week of visitation, simply because is crazy there.. The area gets crowded, traffic around the park is insanely heavy and well, Im not even talk about the parking. So be aware and prepare yourself to go there using another type of transit instead of your car, if you have one.

Centennial Park -

This park is in Etobicoke area, and it has the second largest collection of cherry trees, more than 200 ones!

Trinity Bellwoods Park -

Between the Dundas and Queen St West, the park also offers the combo of cherry + cn tower view!

If you don’t want to go where everybody else is going, you can also find them at Birkdale Ravine, Toronto Centre Island, Cedarvale Park and the Exhibition Place, for example.

Well, Im now booking Spring sessions YEEEES! We are going to see some cherry blossoms, sunflowers and lavenders this year.
