The Sebastian’s | Niagara Family Photographer

On one of the hottest days of the summer I had the honour of photographing this gorgeous family. Thanks for sticking it out in the heat and being so patient! Little Jessa took 45 minutes to warm up to me and wanted NOTHING to do with the session. Which made for some real adorable pouty faces.   The sweetest siblings!  These candid photographs are my favourite! Doing anything to get Jessa engaged in the session.  Jessa’s little hands, so adorable! I had a lot of fun with you guys. Thanks for not judging me while I made a fool of my self trying to win Jessa over!

The Richard’s | Niagara Family Photographer

Family farm, barn, field, storm clouds, boots and HORSES – this session was a dream!

I’ve known the Richard’s since high school when Shelby and I became friends. This is th second time I’ve photographed them – a gift for Dad! – and it’s always a pleasure. I mean c’mon, look how gorgeous this family is!  We just beat the rain by a couple of minutes, it made for the perfect sky and lighting. Everyone wants a beautiful clear blue sky on photo day, but in reality an overcast day is the best kind of day. No squinting, no shadows, perfect!  When Dad mentioned including the Draft Horses I was all for it! Aren’t they beautiful?!??

The Skinner’s | Lincoln Family Photographer

liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_family_photographer01 I’m a little lot late posting this. Last month I had the pleasure of photographing this family. The daughter’s got together and purchased this portrait session as a gift for their mother. (A GREAT idea for those hard to buy for parents!) I knew the session was going to be great from the first contact I had with Mom – “I’ll have the coffee ready.” She knows the way to my heart! It was one of the hottest days of the summer, but they were all troopers and put up with my shenanigans, even the littlest two! Afterwards they invited me to stay for the most delicious dessert ever. I had a lot of laughs with these guys! liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_family_photographer02 liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_family_photographer03 How adorable is this image of the girls with their Auntie. So natural, I love it!

Spring Mini Session

I’m going to take a moment here to thank all of the families that came out to my mini sessions and to the families coming to my “rain date” day! It is truly your support that allows me to do what I love every day, and I whole heartedly thank you. It makes me so happy to provide you with photographs that you will cherish for a lifetime.

Now scroll down and look as some adorable faces!

Nora’s got her grumpy, contemplating life face. Charlie is comforting his little brother. Ahhh, so sweet.  I love that Mom loves these images as much as I do because “It’s just us!” THESE are the real moments, not the pose ones, these are the ones you’ll want to remember.liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_child_family_photographer07liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_child_family_photographer09 liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_child_family_photographer10 liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_child_family_photographer11 I love those lashes! liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_child_family_photographer12 liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_child_family_photographer13 At the end of the session, this little one cuddled into Dad and it was the sweetest moment, I had to capture a portrait. liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_child_family_photographer14

The DeMeester’s | Hamilton Family Photographer

liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton01 This was the second time I’ve had the pleasure of photographing this growing family. Last Sunday the location was GORGEOUS and the weather was perfect for family portraits. 17 degrees in November? We’ll take it! liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton02
Miss Addy is a bit of a wild child, like every two year old. But I love the expressions we got from her. She’s the sweetest little girl!liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton03 Kisses for her little brother, so sweet and gentle. liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton04 liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton05 So much fun. I love Mom and Brock in the foreground. liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton06 Capturing ‘in between’ moments like this is my favourite. Just 100% completely natural. liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton07 liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton08How perfect are Brock’s eyes?! I’m obsessed! liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton09 liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton10I can’t wait to photograph this family again!

The Smiths | Niagara Family Photographer

liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton01 This was my second session at this location in two weeks and it hasn’t gotten old yet! The colours were GORGEOUS and of course this family too. Kyle took a lot of convincing to get these photographs but it was definitely worth it, we got some great ones for this family! liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton02 liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton03 Sad to happy in 2.6 seconds with the help of some bubbles. liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton04 liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton05 This little guy has the coolest eyes! liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton06 liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton07 Normally I’m not into “Hey lets throw some leaves for a photo” but when the 2 year old is pretty much over the session, I’m willing to do anything. Plus. HOW CUTE IS THIS PHOTOGRAPH! liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton08

The Walkers | Niagara Family Photographer

liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton01 The Walkers were one of the lucky winners from my 12 Days of Giveaways last year. We lucked out on the weather – warm, overcast and the trees were PERFECT! These two chose the perfect location for their family portraits.  The little miss didn’t want to be photographed, but few kids can resist my natural charm and hilarious personality. (Kidding! Well.. kinda, kids really can’t help but love me for some reason!)liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton02 liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton03 I love these fun natural shots with Mom and Dad. liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton04 Miss Giggles, way too cute!liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton05 liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton06 Ah, fall is fading too quickly. I can’t get enough of the beautiful colours.liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton07

Brims | Hamilton Family Photographer

liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton01 I was so happy when Stephanie contacted me about booking a session for her grandparent’s 60th anniversary gift. Photographs make a great keepsake and there is no better time than the present!

4 generations of Brims, love this portrait!   liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton02 This is the goal, 60 years of marriage and you can still see the love in their eyes. While I was photographing the two of them they were cracking jokes about holding hands and cuddling up, my kinda people. Too sweet. liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton03 liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton04 These 5 have moved back to Canada after years of teaching in Malaysia. Their families could not be happier.  liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton05

Sometimes in order to get a family portrait you have to play ball with the kids in between shots – and for a while after the shoot is over. So worth it!  liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton06 liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton07 I’m in love with the hair on these two, so perfect!liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton08 These two happy boys and Wou in the background. Makes my chuckle. liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton09 liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton10 liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton11

Synder | Hamilton Family Photographer

liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton01 This family was one of the lucky winners of my 12 Days of Christmas giveaways. From our pre-consultation I knew that this session was going to be great! Mom did a great job coordinating outfits and regardless of how cold and windy it was the kids did AMAZING. Doing exactly what I asked without and “no’s” or complaints. I can’t not say enough about this family, they were picture perfect and so easy to pose! liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton02 Typical boy. Hehehe. This photograph makes me laugh. liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton03 Cozying up in a blanket.

So dainty and petite. Guh. ADORABLE!
liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton11 I hope I get the chance to photograph this family again in the future. liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton12
