Are they here yet?!

As you may, or may not know, I am a huge believer in getting photographs printed. Last week I photographed my niece and ordered some of her portraits for my family and I. As I sit here waiting for the photographs to arrive from my supplier, the excitement is unbearable. Knowing that these photographs are mine to keep makes waiting for them to arrive so much worse!

A lot of times I only have the prints for a day or two before I present them to my clients to love and cherish. I always get very excited to see my photography in print – something tangible that I can hold in my hands – regardless of if they are for my clients or myself. I know what I am feeling is only a fraction of the happiness and excitement that they have when they see the professional portraits of their new baby or their family in print for the first time. There is something special about being able to give my clients such beautiful portraits and knowing that every time they look at those photographs, they are going to get the same feeling they got when they saw them for the first time.

Knowing that these feelings are going to last as long as my photographs, I have my photographs printed on museum quality archival paper using a chemical process and then mounted on 3mm mat board – so they are incredibly durable!

During the portrait session, I arrange for my clients to see their portraits the following week. And baring any backup’s with my supplier, within a month of their session my clients have tangible products to show to their family and friends. Having had professional portraits taken of my family in the past, I know first hand how hard it is waiting to see your images – no matter how short or long! It is important to me that my clients get their photographs as soon as humanly possible!

And on that note, my dog is going crazy – they must be here!!!

Allie’s First Year | Niagara Newborn and Child Photographer

I’m at a loss for what to say about these beautiful photos.

It has been such a pleasure watching Allie grow this past year. I first photographed her when she was only 6 days old! Her parents were so sweet to have thought of me to document the beginning of their new baby’s life.

Now a year and four photo shoots later; Allie is celebrating her 1st birthday. We had so much fun with a pink and white themed birthday portrait session. This girls smile can light up anyone’s world!

I hope you enjoy watching Allie grow through her portraits as much as I have!

Exciting Announcement!

If you follow my Facebook Page, then you know that for several months I have eluded to some exciting news.

As some of you may, or may not know, I have been spending a great deal of my time in Hamilton and have begun to expand my business there. I am very excited to begin this next chapter of my career. I’m incredibly grateful to my clients in Niagara, and am excited to continue to photograph their growing families.

Eliza-110-2 LCCP

Along with expanding my business to Hamilton, I have decided to focus on photographing what I am passionate about – newborns and children! I will also be creating maternity portraits and portraits of young families. While I love photographing every genre, children truly inspire me.  If you are getting married, not to worry, I will still be booking a few weddings per year. But be sure to get in touch with me early to avoid disappointment.

Over the last few months I been very busy; I have created a unique Maternity Experience that I am very excited to launch next month! And I have created stylized portrait experiences that truly capture each child’s personality and interests. I cannot wait to create portraits that are unique and meaningful to each one of you.


And now, the time has finally come to share my big news!

Eliza | Niagara Child Photographer

Liz Czinege Child Photographer Niagara Hamilton01

A few weeks ago I came up with an idea for this shoot when I was inspired by a huge field of wild flowers. When I went back to look at the location to make sure everything was ready to go, I found that the City of Port Colborne had cut down the field of wild flowers – the worst feeling for a photographer. So after a few days of heartbroken searching, I found this location, not as good as the first but an adequate substitute.

Not wanting to miss the opportunity again, I bought a dress for Eliza, painted her nails, made her hair ‘pretty’ and headed to the spot.

And now – my wild child niece.

This Miss is very expressive. She definitely gets that from me.. whoops!Liz Czinege Child Photographer Niagara Hamilton08

I would give anything for her curls, so beautiful!Liz Czinege Child Photographer Niagara Hamilton07 Liz Czinege Child Photographer Niagara Hamilton04

I am in LOVE with this photo. So natural! Just admiring the flowers..Liz Czinege Child Photographer Niagara Hamilton05

This is what happens when the photographer tries to be in a photo – uncooperative kids! This is about the best I can expect from them, but I love them all the same! Liz Czinege Child Photographer Niagara Hamilton09

Since my niece was born 3 years ago, I have photographed her twice a year. (A little over due on this one..) I love capturing these portraits of her, because along with watching her grow, I’ve also been able to watch my photography grow and develop into my own style. These photos and the ones I took of her last May are definitely my favourites to date!

Sadie | 6 Days | Niagara Newborn Photographer

On Canada Day I photographed 6 day old Sadie.
Her Auntie got this portrait session for her – a wonderful investment that will last a lifetime – I don’t think there is a greater gift then that of photography.

I love that smile – makes my heart melt! Liz Czinege Newborn Photographer Niagara Hamilton5 Liz Czinege Newborn Photographer Niagara Hamilton4

I love when parents have special things they want included in the portraits – we took this one for Grandma. Sadie’s Great Grandfather worked with wood – he made the bowl that she is in as well as the ducks and was an avid bell collector! A sweet little family. Liz Czinege Newborn Photographer Niagara Hamilton6 Liz Czinege Newborn Photographer Niagara Hamilton3

Sadie’s parents asked if we could take a trip to the fire hall where Jon is a volunteer firefighter – of course I jumped at this idea – I love the portraits we got there! They’re so unique and important to this family.Liz Czinege Newborn Photographer Niagara Hamilton7 Liz Czinege Newborn Photographer Niagara Hamilton1 Liz Czinege Newborn Photographer Niagara Hamilton8
