Mason | Niagara Newborn Photographer

liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_newborn_photographer01 At two weeks old Mason was 10 pounds of pure sweetness. I was a little nervous going into this session, I never know how a newborn is going to go – especially after 10 days – but Mason was so patient with me. We started his portraits session in his nursery, which I am completely obsessed with! His mama put a lot of time into his gorgeous room!

I’m in love with this portrait, this little family is adorable. liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_newborn_photographer04 liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_newborn_photographer05 liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_newborn_photographer06 These little toes though, I just want to kiss them!liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_newborn_photographer07 liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_newborn_photographer08 I hope to see this little man again soon!liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_newborn_photographer09

Katelyn&Colin | Niagara Engagement Photographer

liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_grimsby_engagement_wedding_photographer01 After 8 years of dating my good friends Katelyn and Colin are FINALLY engaged! I have been looking forward this session for a while now. I took these two (and Kali of course!) down to the quarry for their portrait session. Photographing friends can sometimes be difficult and that was definitely the case with these two – they didn’t want to be cuddly and romantic in their portraits (how do you capture engagement portraits without that?!) but I enjoyed the challenge!liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_grimsby_engagement_wedding_photographer02 liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_grimsby_engagement_wedding_photographer03Their fur baby, Kali, stole a show a few times during their session. liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_grimsby_engagement_wedding_photographer04 I tricked them into a couple of cutesy-wootsy images though “I’m just going to take a shot of Kali with you guys blurry in the background. Just do whatever back there.”  heheheliz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_grimsby_engagement_wedding_photographer05 liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_grimsby_engagement_wedding_photographer06During the session these two proposed to me – “Will you be our wedding photographer?” and gave me an adorable camera necklace (which I am wearing right now!). Of course I said YES! and I can’t wait to capture what I know will be a beautiful wedding. The necklace and proposal was such a nice gesture. Sometimes choosing between photographer, guest or bridesmaid can be difficult when your friend is a photographer, I am completely honoured and so happy that I didn’t have to be the one to make that decision!liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_grimsby_engagement_wedding_photographer07 Love this laughing one! liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_grimsby_engagement_wedding_photographer08 Katelyn, you are too gorgeous! liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_grimsby_engagement_wedding_photographer09 Completely unposed moments are my absolute favourite!! This image is 100% “Katelyn and Colin”.liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_grimsby_engagement_wedding_photographer10 liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_grimsby_engagement_wedding_photographer11WAY north or over in Manitoba, wherever you two wed, I’ll be there with a smile on my face and a tear in my eye. So happy for you two and your fur babies!
