Eastyn | ONE! | Hamilton Child Photographer

liz_czinege_niagara_child_photographer1 On this beautiful Thanksgiving morning I met with Eastyn and her mom to capture her first birthday portraits. Eastyn is such a sweetie, so happy to be one! In reality she probably has no idea what’s going on, but she loved being the centre of attention!  Mom brought along this great chalkboard that a friend of hers made, and I am in LOVE with it. So great!! liz_czinege_niagara_child_photographer2 Kisses and Peek-a-Boo, heheh.liz_czinege_niagara_child_photographer5 liz_czinege_niagara_child_photographer4 liz_czinege_niagara_child_photographer6 These moments are the sweetest, I love them. liz_czinege_niagara_child_photographer3 Mommy daughter moments are my favourite to capture.

Sophie | Hamilton Newborn Photographer

liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara06Sophie is such a sweet little girl! I was with her for two and a half hours and I barely heard a peep out of her. She slept without waking during the first hour of our session – which is almost unheard of! – and it made for some super sweet portraits!liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara02 liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara07 liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara08 liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara10 liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara03 We got some rare “open eyed” portraits while waiting for Sophie to fall back asleep, she was so content and perfect for me!liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara04 Sophie looks so cuddly and comfy, I rarely capture wrapped, falling asleep shots, but I love the way these ones turned out. I might have to photograph a few at every newborn session!liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara09 I photographed mom’s maternity portraits, it was an honour to capture their first family portraits as well!  liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara01

liz_czinege_newborn_child_photographer_hamilton_niagara05 liz_czinege_newborn_child_photographer_hamilton_niagara01 It takes a bit of work to get Isabella to smile, she’s such a serious baby. But when she does, it’s totally worth it! liz_czinege_newborn_child_photographer_hamilton_niagara06
