Toronto Baby Photography

Welcome to my Toronto baby photography blog and website

Hello, I'm Charlotte. Nice to meet you!

I absolutely love using my newborn and baby photography to bring joy and happiness into people’s lives. I love knowing that the images I’ve created will become priceless heirlooms for your family in years to come. One day, when your children have grown, you’ll hold on to these images as a way to take you back to this special time in your life.

It’s true that newborn babies grow so quickly! It is imperative to professionally capture these fleeting moments before they’re gone forever.

I'll create fresh and natural baby photography of your little one and stylized editorial portraits of your children that reflect the essence and unique personality of your child. From the moment you enter my Toronto baby photography studio you will be a part of a tranquil environment designed as the ideal space for relaxed child portraiture. Sit back with a hot cup of herbal tea and enjoy the experience as I create amazing fine art imagery especially for your child.

Baby Couture: Fine Art Baby Albums

I’m getting ready for an amazing newborn session today but I had to take a minute to write this post! I’m just so excited to be launching my Baby Couture Line. What is Baby Couture you ask? Baby Couture is my new premium line of custom baby albums designed to really personalize your Rainbow Eleven experience. I personally create a couture, fashion baby album for you based on your unique style and taste to design something that is truly special for your baby, and like nothing else you’ll see.

I’m so thrilled to offer such a unique, amazing high quality heirloom to my clients. Not only are Baby Couture Albums unique with the luxurious imprinted leathers, fabrics, silks and velvets we can offer but there is also premium photographic prints used during the binding process… Something that only Rainbow Eleven clients know about 🙂 You’d have to see it to believe how beautiful it is!!

The great thing about this to me is the ability to use so many different fabrics, leathers and textured materials in my custom design. I love being able to mix leathers with textures and do something creative and unique, something really personalized and special for your baby!

I love this design so much, I named it “Sabre” after the adorable newborn in the image. The leaves in this design are actually a raised velvet texture and there is a gorgeous strip of rich black leather down the middle. I LOVE the way it frames the image and creates this striking yet opulent look.

You can see the texture and the way the velvet leaves are raised here. Also the gorgeous quality of the spine. Such perfection!!

Look at the craftsmanship of this binding and spine. This is what a high quality album looks like! You can see the thickness and durability of the pages so the photographic print binds perfectly and seamlessly to the page. Baby Albums really do make me happy!

I think being based in Toronto means that I’m lucky enough to have so many amazing clients with so many different tastes and styles. Like for instance Makio’s parents, Funky music producers with an amazing sense of style. I always love to have my clients input and get a sense for what they are drawn to when creating my design. I love, love, love this texture and the way it plays off of the fresh lime colour of the baby sling. Sometimes my clients leave the creativity and design solely up to me and that’s so much fun too.  This texture is so vibrant and so much fun. I named this style after the featured baby as well, I call this design “Makio”

I love doing the less than obvious when it comes to my Baby Couture designs. I love playing with negative space and doing the unexpected. Having a single image on a page allows your eye to enjoy the image with ease, it really is a beautiful thing isn’t it?

And don’t forget about the adorable details… They grow up way too fast, don’t they.

These handcrafted albums truly are a dream…

I just got these albums in late yesterday afternoon and wanted to share them with you all before they go to their new home 🙂 These are not Baby Couture they are our Premium Leather Albums in 10×14 and 10×10. Still uber gorgeous,  and in luxurious leathers.

Thanks for taking a peak at some of the awesome options we have to create fine art pieces of your baby’s first photography experience. To me this is my craft and a work of art, my vision is not complete until I can present my clients with a luxurious album to hold on to their memories of this very special time. Can’t wait to photograph your baby or newborn soon!

Camp Ooch Fundraising Gala at The ROM

This post is from a few months back but I’d love to share it with you all. I’m very passionate about working with local Toronto Charities and Camp Oochigeas is definitely one of our faves. Camp Oochigeas is a amazing camp for kids with cancer, where they can go to play and have fun with other kids and still continue to undergo their chemotherapy treatments. Camp Ooch also provides kids with 680 year round programs at no cost to the families. It’s such an important, life changing experience for the kids that’s why this charity is so close to our hearts!

We were so honoured to be asked this year to cover the gala and auction at The ROM, Royal Ontario Museum. The lavish gala raised over half a million dollars in one evening and had over 700 of Toronto’s most generous in attendance. The evening hosted a very special spokesperson, child actress and cancer survivor, Heidi Hayes. Heidi spoke about how Camp Ooch changed her life and helped her through the really tough times while she battled cancer. She also spoke about all of the great friends she made while along the way. You may recognize her from her hit movies History of Violence with Viggo Mortensen. There were a lot of tears, laughter love at the gala and we were so happy to be a part of it all. If you’d like to donate to Camp Ooch and help a local child’s fight please do so here DONATE.

Thanks to our friend and amazing Event Planner Currie Ross for contacting us to help support Camp Ooch.

Beach Day in Super 8

Yesterday we took a little road trip with our mini dachshunds Greta & Fritz. In the GTA, one of our favourite spots is Bluffers Park for some summer fun. It’s like a little slice of heaven on a hot day… The water is crystal clear, warm and there’s shady spots like the one we grabbed to chill out.

We thought we’d play with a very basic little digital camera we had shaking around. We made a family movie inspired by the Super 8 video’s my Opa used to make when he was a cinematographer.

It was a lot of fun! Let us know what you think 🙂

If you’d like to see more of these Super 8 videos, have a look at our new website – Super 8 Revival.

Family Shoot: The Turks and Caicos

We’ve been having a great year here at Rainbow Eleven. It’s amazing how many shoots we have lined up for 2010 and even into 2011! I’ve been very excited for a long time to photograph an amazing couple and their gorgeous little girl Lauren in the tropical islands of the Turks and Caicos. We photographed Sean and Melissa’s wedding on Magen’s Bay Beach in St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands and ever since I couldn’t wait to get the family together to play in the waves.

I love this shot of Lauren… Every time a wave splashed her toes she would scream with delight!! Super adorable! Do you recognize Lauren? Yes, she’s the model I used for the cover of the Baby and Toddler Guide 2010! I also won a Baby Photography  Award with one of Laurens images. I think this little girl is destined to shine!

What a happy family, look at those smiles!! Dad Sean is an awesome orthodontist, with smiles like that, they should use their own photos in a magazine ad, you all look like models anyway 😀

What a fun and relaxed shoot. I always feel like the best creative juices flow when everyone just relaxes and enjoys the fun of photography. Lauren had a great time during the shoot. She thought she was just having a play date with mom and dad! To me,  that’s the best way to capture pure, real images of your loved ones. I love candid moments and true smiles!

I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter, kinder, more genuine family to photograph. I’m very honoured to have captured the true spirit of you all in my photographs. Much love to you all!!
