Capturing the magic and the love between parents and their children always feels like a magnificent accomplishment; something that is extremely special to me. Love: Jo xoxo #joanneschwindt #torontophotograph #childphotographer #torontolife #familyphotographer #familyportraits #family
Photo sessions that leave me glowing afterward are my favourite. This family shared some time with me a few weeks ago, and in our short time together I witnessed so much love. Here are a few images from this lovely session.

I got the best response from this lovely family when I sent them an email letting them know it was lovely meeting them after our photo session. They told me that the miniature toy camel I had given to their son transformed into a dragon and now their son giggled every time they asked him about it. I smiled from ear to ear when I read this. I find the connections that happen during my photography sessions as special as the moments I preserve for the people I am photographing.
When I hold my camera and photograph families, these moments mean as much to me as they will for them- the family in the frame. I know this for certain because I can feel it in my heart when the shutter opens and then closes. Mark, Jess, Everly and Easton have been in front of my camera now for almost 4 years, and even before they began their family together I photographed moments during some significant milestones. I am lucky that they have invited me, time and time again in
Walking into this family's home for our maternity session was so much fun. The excitement was everywhere. I loved this session. There were so many beautiful moments. So many beautiful memories. A family of four, soon to become a family of 6. I look forward to meeting these lovely twins soon.

This was our first time meeting one another. Michelle, Paulo, Eila and I. Maybe it's just me, but these people carried so much love for each other and it showed through in these windows of time I had the honour of capturing. I had a wonderful experience photographing this family. Thank you to The Branco Family. I created a short video of our session together. Here are a few of my favourite moments.

Watching my nephew's birth was simply one of the most moving experiences of my life thus far. I've mentioned this before, that witnessing a birth is absolutely life changing. It's very different than being at your own birth. When you are birthing your own child you are in the moment, feeling the contractions and going through the motions. When you are watching a birth, camera-ready or as part of a support to the family it's extremely emotional in the most miraculous way. I di

We found out a few weeks ago and kept things hush. We finally got the okay and are doing a dance of joy! Mark, Jess and Evie are expecting a new little person early next year! Baby #2! A couple of weeks ago I was welcomed into their lives, camera-ready to capture loving moments. Here are a few from the series. I look forward to posting more images of Jess' growing belly, this baby's birth and onward.
How lucky we all are to know this kind of love. Thank you, M + J for allow
It was Mother's Day when we told everyone that we were expecting our third child. We announced it with this photograph above. This photograph used to announce our pregnancy was taken right after we told our children that they were going to have a new baby. They were overjoyed and from that day forward they kissed my belly everyday until their baby sister arrived. My husband and I thought about having a third baby for sometime. It seemed to make sense that having two healthy c
