Cole is ONE! Wow. What a year it has been. It seems like yesterday that I was photographing Cole’s newborn portraits – and here we are at his cake smash birthday session!  Doesn’t he have the best blue eyes?! Gorgeous!  After the cake smash we called in the clean up crew. Maple is the best big sister ever!

Everly | Niagara Child Photographer

A late night blog post because I really can not help myself! Everly is 9 months old – and she gets cuter by the day! Her mama got lost trying to find this field – too many times to count – she called me, Everly SCREAMING in the backseat and I thought to myself “oh boy, here we go”. Eventually I went to find her and she followed me to this field. Everly came out of the van with a smile on her face. The shoot started an hour later than it was supposed to, but that meant that the sun was PERFECT. This session could not have worked out any better! Kudos to Tara for not letter her frustration come through and transfer to Everly.  This girls eyes – just stunning!
I never post straight out of camera images. I always adjust the colour and brightness to suit my personal style, but this image was just way too perfect not to share as is.  After a short little drive we ended up here, fit so perfectly with the theme we have going for her first year sessions.  Her mom made this dress because she couldn’t find what she was picturing in a store. SO PERFECT.  I love Everly’s eye squint, her big sister does the same thing when she is really happy!  Ahhh, one more session to go to complete her first year package. But I’m not sure how I can top these. She was so perfect!

Cole gets more adorable every time that I see him. He was so good for his 9 month portraits! We got so many smiles, and this time – no grandma required!  Those eyes!  I had to post Cole’s adorable little faces. I can’t wait to photograph his birthday portraits in a couple of months!

Everly was in the studio for her 4 month portraits as part of her Baby’s First Year package. We waited a little longer for these ones because this girl is a little cranky.. I mean, colic. I was so nervous about this session, Everly cries, all. the. time. so I was worried that we wouldn’t get any portraits of her smiling, or even just looking at the camera. BUT SHE DID AMAZING! AND I captured her laughing for the first time EVER. So cool!  I am in LOVE with these photographs. So simple.  SO MUCH HAPPINESS IN ONE PHOTOGRAPH!

EVERLY. COME ON. That squinty, scrunchy pure happiness face. SO ADORABLE.  There is just something about her face in this photograph, so much wonder.  Oh, the many faces of Ev!
When I’m culling through photographs from a session for the first time I never know what I’m going to come across in the next photo – closed eyes, funny faces – sometimes I get a good chuckle out of them. But this photograph of Everly had me snorting. She went from happy to angry in about one second.  I wish I could get this photograph at every 3 month session! Sleeping babies are the best! After a brief nap, Everly was ready for round two! These were the only photographs that Mama wanted to do. 

Cole | Niagara Child Photographer

Cole was in the studio for his 4 month portraits a few weeks ago as part of his first year package. He was FULL of smiles, especially when Grandma showed up!
He’s got the cutest little smirk!  What a difference a couple of months makes!
See you in July little guy! 

Cole | Niagara Newborn Photographer

Cole, two days old and perfect!  I’m so ecstatic that Mom and Dad welcomed me into their home on their first full day home from the hospital. They’re such champs and so laid back! And you could definitely tell during his session, he was the best little guy to photograph! Couldn’t help but include this special blanket! And of course Mom and Dad’s original baby, Maple, had to be included as well!
I can’t wait to photograph Cole in this same spot 4 more times over the next year! As part of his first year package I will get to watch him grow and capture his milestones at 3 months, 9 months and One Year.Maple may have stolen the show! This family portrait is the best!

But that’s okay because we still got some images that Mom and Dad love and we have 3 more sessions in his first year to make up for it! liz czinege niagara grimsby newborn photographer02liz czinege niagara grimsby newborn photographer03So snuggly! liz czinege niagara grimsby newborn photographer04Newborn piggies! liz czinege niagara grimsby newborn photographer05Lukas looks like the Thinker in this image.

Cole will be turning one in a few weeks. I was so happy when his Mom contacted me about doing birthday portraits. I love seeing how much they have grown since their newborn portraits and what better first birthday present – something that he will cherish for a lifetime.  Cole’s big brother is so patient with him, and with me!  Mom brought a “Chip and Dale” outfit for Cole to wear. Isn’t it the cutest thing ever?!  We all know this feeling – we really shouldn’t but we’re going to anyways, because really.. who can refuse cake?!  Cole wasn’t sure about the taste of the cake, but regardless he kept going back for more!

czinege-photography-niagara-child-01 Happy 6 Months Nicholas! Times flies! I was loving this kids rocking’ style during his session last week. Denim and plaid, my favourites! Last time I photographed Nicholas he was so serious, this time he was all smiles! I love capturing portraits for the “Baby’s First Year” package. It’s awesome to watch them grow and hit milestones. Last time I was Nicholas he could barely hold up his head, now he is such a strong boy!
czinege-photography-niagara-child-02 czinege-photography-niagara-child-03 I love capturing the serious look on kids faces when they’re staring right at the camera, there is just something about it. czinege-photography-niagara-child-04 Hehehe, love that little chin!czinege-photography-niagara-child-07czinege-photography-niagara-child-08 czinege-photography-niagara-child-09Here’s a little triptych of his growth to date; see you in another 3 months little man!
