Hi Aussie Fans!

Map Stats

WordPress sent me statistics from my 2013 year. Perhaps I should move to Australia, it seems I have some fans over there!

I definitely wouldn’t mind the Aussie heat while I freeze my bum off over here in Canada!

To all of you – in North America or across the world – who take the time to read my blog, thanks for the love!

Miss M | 7 Days | Hamilton Newborn Photographer

Liz Czinege Niagara Hamilton Newborn Photographer08There are two things I love about newborns who have gas; the smiles and all the baby cuddles! And I sure got a lot of both from this little girl.

I am pretty stubborn, so when little M here wouldn’t sleep we pushed on, determined to capture those sleepy newborn portraits. Her parents and I tried everything, but after a few hours we realized that her upset tummy was going to win this time. We scheduled her portraits for another day and when I arrived she was a completely different baby.  It may have taken two tries, but I got beautiful portraits for her parents.

So if the baby still isn’t asleep after a few hours, there is something wrong and it’s time to call it a day. I try to book newborn sessions for the 5th day after birth incase a situation like this arises, there will still be plenty of time to reschedule and capture those adorable sleepy portraits! Liz Czinege Niagara Hamilton Newborn Photographer12
I loved all the cuddles I got from this little one and I thank her parents for trusting me to handle their new baby and allowing me to be completely in my element – something difficult for new parents to do. Handing over your baby to a stranger is terrifying, which is why I encourage all of you to get to know your photographer before the session. A Maternity session or the pre-consultation included with the session is a great way to do this! Liz Czinege Niagara Hamilton Newborn Photographer09

Congratulations again to her parents, I wish this little one all the happiness in the world.

Evan | 5 Days | Niagara Newborn Photographer

Evan was meant to be born on my birthday, but instead he decided to wait until after Christmas and be a Boxing Day Baby! Born 10lbs 10oz his mom is definitely a hero of mine!

Evan wasn’t very sleepy but I’m one very determined newborn photographer, we got some great shots! I know these portraits are something that mom and dad are going to cherish when he’s older, they grow way too quick!

Morgan | 6 Days | Niagara Newborn Photographer

When Morgan’s mom booked me for newborn portraits she still had two weeks to go before she met her little girl, so imagine my surprise when she messaged me the next day to let me know that she was in labour! This change of plans forced us to have our pre-consultation in between contractions – that’s a new one for me.

On the morning of our session I made my way to Sherkston. I took the backroads which I quickly realized was the right decision when my car started to fill with the smell of wood burning stoves. (Did I mention I love the country??) It was a gorgeous drive; huge fluffy flakes were falling, the ground was covered in fresh snow.

When I arrived at their house – to a freshly shovelled driveway, thanks dad! – I was in the best mood, not to be ruined by Morgan, who was perfect. She made my job so easy – slept like a..baby?.. the entire session!

How proud are these parents, Morgan is so loved!
