Tara | Niagara Maternity Photographer

My beautiful friend is due with baby number two! Tara and Derek were a bride and groom of mine back in 2012. Since then we have become close friends and I’ve photographed TWO maternity sessions, Alexis’ newborn and first year of life, various Springs, Halloweens and Christmas’ and I’m to say that I will be there to capture the birth of this little one with my first ever birth session – wish us BOTH luck!  I’m so happy with how Tara’s portraits came out. Thanks to the ladies who did her hair and make-up, you girls did an amazing job!  So in love with this growing family. Lex NAILED the session you’d never be able to tell that it was 3 degrees outside and they were all freezing! Tight squeeze!  These two are high school sweethearts and pretty much the cutest. Dad snuck in a quick kiss while I was posing them, I love Tara’s reaction.

Sheena | Niagara Maternity Photographer

Sheena was gifted Maternity and Newborn portraits, she is one luck lady! She was a little nervous about her portraits, but she totally rocked her session. After some TLC from Hair by Ash and Lashed by Courtney we were on our way to Botanical Gardens. 

Sheena and Myles were so adorable together, I love when Dads get involved with the session! These two (and a half) plus that setting sun, perfection!

Gosh! How adorable are these two, seriously!! 

I can’t wait to meet their little girl in a few short weeks!

liz czinege niagara grimsby maternity photographer01Aleks and Brian are letting me join them during the first year of their baby’s life! I will be capturing maternity, newborn, 3 months, 9 months and one year portraits of their little guy. I can’t wait! For their maternity session they were up for anything. We took a drive along my favourite road stopping occasionally to take some portraits and get eaten by mosquitoes. And then we headed to the beach. liz czinege niagara grimsby maternity photographer02liz czinege niagara grimsby maternity photographer03When I said they were up for anything, I mean anything! I was so excited when Aleks agreed to go in the water. I’ve never had a Mama brave enough to hop in but I think all three of us are glad she did! The images of Aleks are stunning. (*Air Five* to Brian for hopping in the water too and helping out!)liz czinege niagara grimsby maternity photographer04liz czinege niagara grimsby maternity photographer05It is hard to choose my favourite image from this session but this one is definitely up there! liz czinege niagara grimsby maternity photographer06

Emily | Niagara Maternity Photographer

liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_maternity_photographer01I am over sharing from this maternity session because I am in LOVE with this beautiful family! The weather and the sun was perfect – a little chilly but Emily was a trooper. The sun did an amazing job making these portraits magical.liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_maternity_photographer03 liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_maternity_photographer02 For real, how cute are these two?!

Amy | Dundas Maternity Photographer

liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_maternity_photographer01 I first met Amy when I arrived at her house to photograph her daughter’s newborn portraits a couple years ago. I love getting “we’re having another baby!” emails and I was so happy when Amy decided to capture maternity portraits this time around.  When Amy and I were discussing where to take her maternity portraits, she mentioned a waterfall near her house and I immediately said YES! We didn’t count on the river being almost completely dry because of the drought, but none-the-less the portraits turned out great and Amy was a trooper climbing down into the riverbed.

liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_maternity_photographer04 During hair and make-up Amy mentioned that hadn’t had her make-up done since her wedding, THAT is probably my favourite part of maternity portraits – spoiling moms. liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_maternity_photographer05

Danielle | Niagara Maternity Photographer

liz_czinege_maternity_photographer_niagara_hamilton02Last October I photographed Danielle and Dan’s Niagara-on-the-Lake wedding. Exactly a year later I had the honour of capturing Danielle’s maternity portraits while they await the birth of their Christmas baby. We did something a little different with her session – splitting the session between traditional outdoor portraits and studio portraits – and Danielle rocked them both! liz_czinege_maternity_photographer_niagara_hamilton01
I love this black and white conversion. Isn’t she stunning?!liz_czinege_maternity_photographer_niagara_hamilton03 liz_czinege_maternity_photographer_niagara_hamilton04 liz_czinege_maternity_photographer_niagara_hamilton05 It was a tad bit windy, but it worked perfectly with this dress. liz_czinege_maternity_photographer_niagara_hamilton06 liz_czinege_maternity_photographer_niagara_hamilton07 liz_czinege_maternity_photographer_niagara_hamilton08 liz_czinege_maternity_photographer_niagara_hamilton09I can’t wait to meet their little girl!

Katelin | Niagara Maternity Photographer

liz_czinege_maternity_photographer_hamilton_niagara_10 Beautiful family, perfectly overcast, calm water – every photographer’s dream. Minus the mosquitoes – I’m still itching!

This beautiful mama is due with twin boys in about a month and I can’t get over how amazing she looks! Everything came together so perfectly for their portrait session. There is really nothing else for me to say, the images say it all.
liz_czinege_maternity_photographer_hamilton_niagara_03 Katelin and Ricky have never had their portrait taken together – CRAZY – I’m glad we captured a few of just the two of them! They’re so natural together.liz_czinege_maternity_photographer_hamilton_niagara_02 Kinley is going to be a great big sister! liz_czinege_maternity_photographer_hamilton_niagara_15 I love this beach, it’s got a little bit of everything. liz_czinege_maternity_photographer_hamilton_niagara_04 liz_czinege_maternity_photographer_hamilton_niagara_05 liz_czinege_maternity_photographer_hamilton_niagara_14 Kinley was practising her poses all day.

Elizabeth | Niagara Maternity Photographer

liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_maternity_photographer03 I met with Elizabeth and Wesley back in January to book their maternity and newborn portraits. The time has gone by so quickly, in a few short weeks they will be meeting their baby! I can’t wait to meet their new addition – and check out all of the great work working  that Wesley has done for their baby!

The hair and makeup ladies did a marvellous job enhancing Elizabeth’s glow!  She was stunning for her portraits!

Especially Wesley – it’s so rare for the men to be interested in the session. I definitely take advantage when I can!! liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_maternity_photographer09 liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_maternity_photographer12 This may be one of my all time favourite portraits. liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_maternity_photographer05 liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_maternity_photographer14How perfect is this dress.
