Ripley | Niagara Newborn Photographer

This little beauty didn’t want to sleep, but that’s okay! Parents always LOVE opened eyed portraits. And I don’t think there’s any doubt that she’s going to have blue eyes!  Contrary to popular belief, skinny babies have the most rolls!! #extraskin  Ripley rocked this pose! Gosh, isn’t her little features so precious?!  My mom hand stitched this quilt for me, I love that I was able to incorporate it into Ripley’s session!  

Jamisyn | Toronto Newborn Photographer

Occasionally I get asked to do sessions outside of the Niagara Region, Jamisyn was SO worth the drive to Toronto!  She rocked every pose, in newborn terms – she didn’t move! Not to mention she is the sweetest little girl, I just wanted to keep snuggling her after her session was over. She’s got the most adorable little features.  It was refreshing photographing a girl after so many boys, but Jamisyn did not love having headbands on, it was the only time she stirred while I was posing her.
Mom didn’t want anything too girly, I think this is the perfect amount!
Parents always love these open eyed portraits. Jamisyn kept her hand perfectly posed! Jamisyn’s big sister had a newborn portrait hanging on the wall in a similar pose, so I couldn’t help myself, I had to recreate it!  Aren’t those cheeks perfectly squishable?! 

Conan | Niagara Newborn Photographer

I’ve been waiting 8 months to do this session! Conan’s parents are good friends of mine, and I knew about him even before his Dad did. One of the perks of being a photographer who photographs pregnancy announcements!! Conan is just as sweet as can be. He was more interested in eating than being a part of this session, but that’s okay. Typically I don’t love wrapped shots because I prefer to see their sweet newborn skin, but they’re growing on me! They’re a great way to start the session when baby isn’t completely asleep yet.  That pout though – hands up if you just made a pouty face too! This was an in-between moment, which I usually wouldn’t photograph, but I loved the way his hair looked so long on his arm!   I LOVE this black and white image.  Conan ROCKED this pose! It was one of the only poses that his mom requested – and the hardest to get! Unless they are completely 100% asleep I won’t even attempt it. The final image looks completely different from the in camera images. It’s a composite of 2 different photographs put together, so baby is supported at all times. 

I can’t wait to watch this little guy grow!

William | Niagara Newborn Photographer

On a snowy day in January I drove to Port Colborne to photograph William. When I arrived Mom and Dad had a fire going in the fireplace, it was nice and cozy for little William – and me! Is there anything better than a real wood fire?!! At 6 pounds and 19 inches, you would never know that he was born more than a month early.    That little tuff of hair. Too cute not to capture!  When I saw a bunch of buffalo plaid in the house I knew I had to incorporate it into William’s portraits.  This family is so sweet. I’m happy that Dad agreed to be in a couple portraits. William had some smiles for us too!

Isaac | Niagara Newborn Photographer

Isaac arrived early and was already a month old when I captured his portraits. He was still as sleepy as ever though! We even managed to get some great open eyed portraits – and smiles!  I love capturing all their little details.  Wide-eyed and content.  Isaac posed himself, he’s a professional already! I love this colour green with his red hair, goes together perfectly! 

River | Niagara Newborn Photographer

Little River was full of smiles and put up quite the fight. But we got the sweetest open eyed portraits of this handsome little man.  I loved taking portraits of River and his big sister. She loves her little brother so much! Bright eyed and adorable.  I am so amused by these portraits. River decided to poop – without a diaper – mid pose. Priceless!

I’m so happy for this beautiful family. I can’t wait to see them again.

Naomi | Niagara Newborn Photographer

I photographed Monica’s maternity portraits and was so excited to meet Naomi! She is the sweet little babe! Her features are so sweet I just wanted to snuggle her for the entire session!  I photographed her session Thanksgiving Monday, her grandparents and their visitors were having brunch Caesars – and one was waiting for me when I finished the session – BEST CLIENTS EVER! They’re my FAV, and my post wedding ritual. Can every newborn session end with a Caesar? Mmmmmm….

Naomi was so content while she was awake and being posed, which rarely happens, and made for some adorable portraits! AND she had so many smiles! Come ON! How adorable is this?!  I can’t wait to watch Naomi grow! 

Harper | Niagara Newborn Photographer

Little Harper was in the studio a couple weeks ago. Such a teeny little girl with the sweetest features! She was so good to me, I loved this session!
I was so happy that I finally got to use this headband! Who says baby girls can’t be photographed in blue?  Safe in Daddy’s arms.  This family is so sweet! 

Joy&Jayde | Niagara Newborn Photographer

I had the pleasure of photographing Joy and Jayde. It was so interesting to see their completely different personalities come out – even at only a couple days old! Joy is on the purple and Jayde is on the grey!

Best friends.  Joy

Jayde On my way to the session I came up with the idea for this set up and stopped to pick some wildflowers. I’m so happy with the way it turned out! I love the similarities and the differences that suit each girl perfectly. 

Everly | Niagara Newborn Photographer

Everly, you met her a couple weeks ago when I blogged her birth session, now here is her newborn session!! I came back to do a couple more portraits because of unforeseen circumstances, but it was TOTALLY worth it!  I love me some newborn smiles.  Alexis is the BEST big sister! I got this portrait without any Photoshop! 3 dogs, a 4 year old and a newborn all co-operating, it was a miracle!! Squishy snuggles.
Safe in Daddies arms.
