Cole | Niagara Child Photographer

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 | Niagara Child Photographer

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 | Niagara Child Photographer

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!

liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_newborn_photographer01 This little munchkin was only 6 pounds when I photographed him. He is such a sweet little boy, he slept through the ENTIRE session and we were done in record time – less than two hours! (I not so secretly love premies. Super tiny and bendy and sleepy, you can’t go wrong.)liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_newborn_photographer02 liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_newborn_photographer03 Not very many babies are comfortable going into this pose, but he rocked it – and so did his sister a few years ago!liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_newborn_photographer04 liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_newborn_photographer05 Nicholas has HUGE hands, he’s going to be a big boy!liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_newborn_photographer06 See you in a couple months Nicholas!liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_newborn_photographer07

Isabella | First Birthday | Hamilton Child Photographer

liz_czinege_photography_child_newborn09 One year has come to a close. I’m always at a lose when it comes to talking about the last session in my Baby’s First Year package. It’s bittersweet, I love watching my little clients grow and reach new milestones! After each session with Isabella I didn’t think she could get any more adorable – but she did! – her smiles is so contagious! liz_czinege_photography_child_newborn01 liz_czinege_photography_child_newborn02 Dad was able to make it to Isabella’s last session and she had nothing but smiles for him – usually she’s VERY serious.
liz_czinege_photography_child_newborn10 liz_czinege_photography_child_newborn03 I’m a sucker for those big brown eyes! liz_czinege_photography_child_newborn04 liz_czinege_photography_child_newborn05 Isabella’s realization that she could eat the cake was hilarious. She kept looking at her parents to see if they were going to say anything – while simultaneously shoving handfuls of cake in her mouth. liz_czinege_photography_child_newborn11 liz_czinege_photography_child_newborn06 liz_czinege_photography_child_newborn07 I love these two photographs, just completely covered in cake. So much fun!! liz_czinege_photography_child_newborn08
