This post never made it out of my drafts. And since I’m catching up on all my blog posts, I thought I would share this one as well!
Brothers, always there to bonk ya on the head with a balloon. It’s safe to say Nathan hated his cake, as delicious as it looked! Maple was more than happy to step up and help her brother.
This little cutie turned two this week. And when I went to look for the blog post to share, I realized that I never posted one – WHICH IS CRAZY! – because I loved every single one of the images from this session. So, I decided it’s never too late to share my favourite images from Naomi’s first birthday.
Mama had some amazing ideas for Naomi’s session. Together, we put our heads together and made it a reality! When mom and dad are this gorgeous, it’s no wonder Naomi is so beautiful! I loved this simple cake setup. Just enough of everything to not take away from the girl of the hour! I usually find that extravagant set-ups end up taking the attention away from the child that’s in the portrait. These two are way too much fun! I’ve photographed their maternity portraits, Naomi’s newborn portraits and Naomi’s first birthday and Monica and Holden never disappoint! I’m also pretty sure that I’ve been handed a bevy every time I’ve walked into their home. #BonusPoints After getting messy with the cake, a little clean up was required. (Mostly for mom and dad, since Naomi was probably the cleanest baby post-cake smash that I have ever seen.)
Colton is such a happy little guy! It’s been a while since I put a baby in a bucket, but his plaid and this rustic bucket – perfection! All the white makes Colton’s eyes pop doesn’t it?! Serious, neutral baby faces are the best. Don’t get me wrong, smiles are great, but there is something about that stare that just gets ya!
Rolls.For.Days. Colton’s going to hold his own against his older brothers when he gets older!
I can’t wait to deliver Caleb’s portraits to his Mom. They’re all packaged up and ready to go! I drove from Grimsby to Port Colborne is a snow storm for his session, and it was so worth it. He was a little sweetie during his session!
The little details are a must at every session. Parents can’t get enough! Caleb is definitely going to grow up a cowboy! Mom requested that we use this saddle, obviously I couldn’t say no. (Don’t worry, he was being held the entire time!)
Savannah is the sweetest little thing. I couldn’t believe it when she slept through her entire session and barely even stirred! Savannah’s was enjoying her session obviously, look at that smile! Mom got this awesome headband to use for the session. I love the pop of colour against the pink blanket! That pout though, so perfect!Little piggies. Such a proud big brother. It was adorable seeing how big his smile was when he was holding his little sister.
A couple years ago I photographed Jonathan’s older brother Anthony. I was so thrilled when his mama reached out to me again for baby #2! When photographing a sibling I always try to keep it similar so they go great together hanging on a wall, but also make them unique so the portraits are their own! Jonathan looks so much like Anthony in this photograph! And baby makes four!
Callum is the newest addition to the Savage family. He has two of the best big sisters around! So much love for this little guy! Little baby smirks. A gassy baby is a happy baby! Well, not really, but it does make for some nice portraits! I just love these curly bum shots! Callum was wide awake but quite content taking in the world.
I’m a little behind on my blogging, due to the fact that I was working my butt off trying to get everyone their portraits before going to Punta Cana for my friends wedding! But now I’m back and rested and ready to blog!
Emma. Oh Emma. You are just perfect. After multiple newborns who put up quite the fight, I was beginning to think that I’d lost my touch – it was time to retire my “Baby Whisperer” shirt – literally! But Emma slept through her entire session, stayed in every pose I put her in and didn’t fuss. She was exactly what I needed to get me out of my funk!
Emma has the softest, shiniest hair I have ever seen on a newborn. So gorgeous, I can’t get over it! These portraits are completely different than my usual style, but I am in love with them. She looks so comfy in the bucket!
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!
