ABOUT MATERNITY AND NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY
Max is an expert photographer when it comes to babies. He is extremely professional and and amazingly patient with babies. This is second time Max did photoshoot for my babies.
Max is an amazing photographer. My husband and I recently had our maternity shoot with Max and it was absolutely fantastic. He was very informative during the shoot by directing us in poses and he knew exactly where to get all the good shots in the park that we went to, which was great .His communication via email was always timely and clear. I would highly recommend booking your maternity shoot with Max. we would love to see you for our newborn baby shoot.
Max is incredibly professional and did an amazing job with our photos. He was so patient and great with our newborn. He is extremely professional and the photos turned out so well. I could not be happier and would recommend anyone considering using his services to do so. In addition to the above, we had our photos done during the pandemic and he was very cautious and sanitized his own hands frequently during the process and wore an N95 mask throughout the session. We felt very safe having him take the photos during this time.
We had a newborn photo session with Max last month he did an excellent job. Very professional and very good with babies. We definitely recommend him.
Being dazed new parents and in the early days of being home with our baby, Max was so very good working with our newborn and it was impressive to watch! He was also very responsive to emails as we coordinated our home shoot, a true pleasure to work with!
Photoshoot Type: Newborn Photography, August 2020 Loved my son's newborn pictures! It was a pleasure working with Max. Max is kind, patient, professional, and flexible. He delivered on all his service level agreements and met all my expectations.
Max was fantastic. Our photos are so special. We couldn’t do the newborn photos as covid hit and we were in lockdown with a preemie but he was able to take some family photos with us and our 8 month old son in high park recently. Very professional and our photos turned out great! Not surprised as he has done photos for my sister-in-law and we were really impressed. Would recommend and would use again in the future.
We had the newborn photographing with Max. He is very patient and knows how to handle with the newborn. He is also professional. We are very satisfied with the pictures. It was a pleasure to work with him.
After looking at many newborn photography options, we decided to go with Max! He was awesome to work with and very responsive. He was extremely gentle with our baby boy and kept him calm the entire photo session (we were very impressed!). Our photoshoot was in our home and Max was able to bring all the props and lighting and take some amazing pictures! We are super happy with the pictures and the service provided and would definitely recommend Max to all our friends and family!
Great photographer. Very professional
Absolutely loved working with Max for my son's newborn photos. He was gentle and patient with my son. He was also very understanding and professional with the protocols he has in place with Covid, which is something I was concerned about. I am so happy with the photos and overall experience. Highly recommend!
Love working with Max! He’s great with the kids and the photos don’t disappoint!!! He’s been our photographer of choice for both of our kids baby pictures and family photos!!

highly recommend. The level of care was absolutely amazing with my son. Max took his time and was so gentle with him, all while able to capture the perfect photos. The studio was peaceful and he had tons of props and set up options. Thanks again for capturing these moments.
We did maternity and newborn shoot with them and honestly they are best in GTA. Especially their newborn is amazing Max did it with lots of patience, he knows very well how to handle a newborn baby. Not only this the final pictures are really beautiful. I will definately recommendation then to others.
Max did a fantastic job with our newborn photographs. He was very calm and patient throughout the whole photo session, and he made our newborn feel safe and at ease during the whole session - the baby did not get upset at all until the 3hr session was over :) There were quite a few different backdrops/settings to choose for the photos - all of which turned out great once we saw the finished product. We would definitely recommend Max to anyone wanting their newborn photos taken!
it was very great working with max, he's very patient and his work is neat, he's very professional and I really love his work...I would reccomend him to anyone to capture their special moments....keep up the good work!
**UPDATE** I just learned that Max and Mariam no longer work together. Max had ZERO involvement in this shoot. Like I said he did an AMAZING job on my daughter's newbon photos and I would 100% hire Max again. Mariam has given me a full refund. Thank you Mariam for reaching out and offering the refund. ************* Let me start by saying I've used this company twice now. Max did my daughter's newborn photos and I had no issues, everything was perfect. So I decided to book them again to do my daughter's cake smash photos. I booked them in January 2019 for a photoshoot May 18. I let Mariam know I needed the pictures in time for my daughter's first birthday. I had the intention of printing out photos for friends and family. Mariam asked me what I wanted for background balloons and I specified the color theme and wasn't given options for much else. One week before the shoot I emailed Mariam to confirm the date and time and she emailed me back confirming. 2 days before the shoot she emailed me cancelling saying she was sick and had to reschedule. She rescehduled for the following Friday at 2 pm. I asked for a weekend appointment as I work but she said she could not so I took a half day vacation from work. At 1 pm she texted me saying she was running late from another session and to come for 2:45. Sure no problem. I leave later and while I'm on my way she texts me again saying she just finished the other shoot and to come for 3:15. I told her I was already on my way but would take a walk or something. I paid for parking and waited over an hour when she texted me to say she was cancelling because she was stuck in traffic and there was an accident. She rescheduled for Sunday (all of a sudden she had a weekend appointment). On Sunday we arrived a little early and I texted her asking if that was okay. She rudely sent me a screenshot saying we agreed on a certain time and I was early, she was with another client. I said no problem I'll wait in my car but all considered that eas poorly handled. We FINALLY have the shoot and she tells my husband and I we will get final picturs back in 7 days. She shows us some pictures of other shoots and says she will photoshop the whole background in (she had nothing there but balloons). She collected payment. 7 business days go by and I messaged Mariam asking when I could expect finals and she responds saying it's actually 7 to 10 business days. That would be the day before my daughter's party not leaving enought time to print and I ask her if she can do them sooner. Keep in mind that I booked May 18 knowing that I woukd have to wait 2 weeks for editing but she kept rescheduling. She says she will try for one day sooner but of course I get nothing. After 10 business days I message her again asking for the pictures. At this time she asks me for info to fill in her one year board and I'm sure she hasn't even started editing yet. She send me pictures that night and the editing job is just awful and clearly rushed. Filters slapped on the pictures and she DREW on polka dots on the balloons on the computer (I specified in JANUARY that I would like polka dots on the balloons). I told her this was nothing like what she showed me and she retouches agai adding pink pom poms that are floating in the air. The color theme is black and blue with now random pom poms. The 2nd version was WORSE than the first. I direct her to remove the fake polka dots and make the pompoms the correct color and they still look ordinary like someone took them at home. She kept asking what she could fix, but I'm paying for a service and expertise which she clearly doesn't have. I did not get these pictures until after her birthday party either. I saw so many wonderful cake smash photos from other people and was truly so sad that I paid for such terrible photos. I also want to add Mariam offered to do the pictures half price for the cancelling. Cake smash pictures are $230. I paid $40 deposit and she asked for $120 the day of the shoot. That is more than half price, she gave me a $70 discount for terrible pictures. She does NOT know what she is doing. She is unprofessional!! Save yourself the hassle. DO NOT RECOMMEND. Some pictures in comments of the worst ones that actually made me almost cry. I think the worst was the amount of times she tried to argue with me instead of taking responsibility.
The photographer Max was wonderful with my newborn son. The experience was easy and comfortable within the comfort of my own home. The pictures turned out amazing. I would definitely recommend this company. I am a happy and satisfied customer. I have amazing photos to cherish for a lifetime.
