Here’s what parents-to-be have said about previous events:

“Debbie was super knowledgeable, her discussion covered many topics, which as an expecting mom, I found very informative and made me think of things I hadn’t considered before. I walked away with a bunch of new information and a new contact as a support resource! <image001.gif>”

“I had a great time last night!  I learned a lot and also learned that I have a lot more to learn!  I bought the book recommended by Debbie online this morning and the one recommended by one of the moms as well.  Thanks for putting the event together!”

What do you get when you combine a love of Star Wars and photography? You get the May the Fourth Be With Yoü Star Wars-themed mini session event on May 4th, 2013, by ÜmlaPhoto! Come dressed up! Dress up your kids! Dress up your cat/dog/hamster! Details and sign-up info here:



As promised, ÜmlaPhoto is excited to bring you a new offering for 2013 – birthday party photos! Children grow up so fast, and the last thing you want to do during your child’s birthday party is to be behind the camera, capturing the action, rather than being IN the action! So let me do it for you. You’ll get Ümla’s awesome candid shots AND you’ll get to be in the pictures with your family! Win-win!

To book photos for your child’s party, contact me by e-mail or phone, so that we can chat a little bit about the party (venue, theme, date), along with your expectations. I hope to hear from you soon! In the meantime, check out some recent birthday party photos that I’ve done, and my party package info below. Please note that HST is charged on top of all package prices.

Mommy Connections East Toronto is pleased to announce that we will be offering our Toddlers program for the first time this Winter.

We start at 3pm with a 45 minute mom and toddler activity that we do as a group. You’ll try everything from music with Fun With Music Together to SportBall! We’ll also enjoy things like dance, crafts and story time. Every activity is lead by a local business, giving you the chance to sample all of the amazing mom & tot programs available in East Toronto!

For the second 45 minutes of the class, the toddlers will enjoy supervised play in the children’s play area at the studio. Moms can grab a cup of complementary coffee, and then move into a separate room to participate in a facilitated parenting discussion lead by a local parenting expert. Potty training, picky eaters, first aid…you name it…we talk about it!

Are you a mom of a toddler and a new born? No problem! Your infant can join in at no extra cost. They stay with you the entire time, and can come with us into the discussion room to nurse, sleep etc while we chat.

This program is suitable for tots approx 10 months to 3 years but the age guidelines are flexible.  The 6 week program costs $120.  For more information, please email
