Parker | Niagara Child Photographer

liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton01 Parker was my second Birthday session last week. For a sick babe with some serious jet jag he did great! We got a lot of serious shot, but we also managed to get some of his gorgeous smile! I secretly love the serious ones better.. shhhhh… don’t tell mom! hehehe look at him though!liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton02 I’m a sucker for eyelash shots. liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton03 There’s the smile that everyone loves!

Ava | Niagara Child Photographer

liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton01 Ava is one and she celebrated with portraits and a cake smash! And by she I mean her mom and dad, because really.. Ava had no idea what was going on but she did know that she wasn’t a fan of it. I got quite a few evil eyes from her throughout the session but they were so cute I forgave her ;)liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton02 liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton03 liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton05liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton04 liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton06 liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton07 liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton08 liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton09 The lighting wasn’t the greatest but I couldn’t pass up a portrait in front of the beautiful sunflowers! liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton10 How adorable does Ava look in this tutu?!
liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton11 heheh, baby belly buttons. liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton12 Gorgeous setup for Ava’s cake smash. I love when ideas come together! This is exactly what mom and I had in mind during our pre-consultation!liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton13 liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton14 The many faces of Ava. Throughout the sessions Ava was KILLING me with her hilarious faces. Editing her portraits was definitely amusing, bottom right takes the cake though, I think she had enough cake!liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton15

Isabella | First Birthday | Hamilton Child Photographer

liz_czinege_photography_child_newborn09 One year has come to a close. I’m always at a lose when it comes to talking about the last session in my Baby’s First Year package. It’s bittersweet, I love watching my little clients grow and reach new milestones! After each session with Isabella I didn’t think she could get any more adorable – but she did! – her smiles is so contagious! liz_czinege_photography_child_newborn01 liz_czinege_photography_child_newborn02 Dad was able to make it to Isabella’s last session and she had nothing but smiles for him – usually she’s VERY serious.
liz_czinege_photography_child_newborn10 liz_czinege_photography_child_newborn03 I’m a sucker for those big brown eyes! liz_czinege_photography_child_newborn04 liz_czinege_photography_child_newborn05 Isabella’s realization that she could eat the cake was hilarious. She kept looking at her parents to see if they were going to say anything – while simultaneously shoving handfuls of cake in her mouth. liz_czinege_photography_child_newborn11 liz_czinege_photography_child_newborn06 liz_czinege_photography_child_newborn07 I love these two photographs, just completely covered in cake. So much fun!! liz_czinege_photography_child_newborn08

Eastyn | ONE! | Hamilton Child Photographer

liz_czinege_niagara_child_photographer1 On this beautiful Thanksgiving morning I met with Eastyn and her mom to capture her first birthday portraits. Eastyn is such a sweetie, so happy to be one! In reality she probably has no idea what’s going on, but she loved being the centre of attention!  Mom brought along this great chalkboard that a friend of hers made, and I am in LOVE with it. So great!! liz_czinege_niagara_child_photographer2 Kisses and Peek-a-Boo, heheh.liz_czinege_niagara_child_photographer5 liz_czinege_niagara_child_photographer4 liz_czinege_niagara_child_photographer6 These moments are the sweetest, I love them. liz_czinege_niagara_child_photographer3 Mommy daughter moments are my favourite to capture.

Niamh | 1 Year | Hamilton Child Photographer

liz_czinege_photography_niagara_hamilton_children04

Miss Niamh (pronounced Neve) is almost one! We held the session at Niamh’s grandparents farm in Beamsville. Surrounded by a vineyard, an orchard and Irish accents, I can honestly say it was such a pleasure to photograph Niamh and her family. With Niamh’s grandparents visiting from Ireland, it was a great opportunity to capture portraits with both set of Grandparents for Niamh’s first birthday.

liz_czinege_photography_niagara_hamilton_children02The dog’s wanted to be part of the portrait session too, photo bombing every chance they got. But that’s okay, because by the end of the session I was in love with these rescued Vizsla’s (they’re Hungarian hunting dogs, so I felt a connection to them HA!)

liz_czinege_photography_niagara_hamilton_children03 I’ve had “You’ve got the cutest little baby face, there isn’t another one to take your place.” on repeat in my head since I photographed Niamh. Her grandparents sang it repeatedly to make her smile, whatever works!liz_czinege_photography_niagara_hamilton_children05I am in LOVE with the family portrait, it really doesn’t get much more natural then this. liz_czinege_photography_niagara_hamilton_children06
liz_czinege_photography_niagara_hamilton_children01 After the session I was invited to stay for tea and cheese – who can say no to that?! Especially when it involved loose tea and actual tea cups! Afterwards Niamh, her mom and I snuck out to take a few more photographs which turned out to be my favourites from the session! liz_czinege_photography_niagara_hamilton_children08liz_czinege_photography_niagara_hamilton_children07

Ashton | First Birthday | Niagara Child Photographer

liz_czinege_photography_niagara_hamilton_child11In just a few short weeks Ashton will be turning one, I can’t believe it has been a year since I captured her newborn portraits. I was so happy that she came back to capture her one year milestone. It’s the best feeling watching these little ones grow!

liz_czinege_photography_niagara_hamilton_child08Ashton’s mom and I worked together to come up with a these and colour scheme for the portraits – based around Ashton’s homemade dress! After a 5 hour newborn session, Ashton decided to go easy on me and was all smiles for last weeks session! HOW CUTE IS SHE?! I can’t get over it!
liz_czinege_photography_niagara_hamilton_child01liz_czinege_photography_niagara_hamilton_child02 Ordinarily I narrow the images down to twenty great portraits to show my clients. However after staring at these images for an hour I decided I couldn’t bare to get rid of anymore so the total stayed at thirty-five. I couldn’t wait to show her parents!liz_czinege_photography_niagara_hamilton_child10 Ashton’s Birthday Party is a Teddy Bear Tea Party theme, so of course we had to include them in her portraits!liz_czinege_photography_niagara_hamilton_child04 liz_czinege_photography_niagara_hamilton_child03 liz_czinege_photography_niagara_hamilton_child05 Welcome to Ashton’s cake smash! liz_czinege_photography_niagara_hamilton_child09 This girl didn’t like the sugary icing or being messy! So sweet! liz_czinege_photography_niagara_hamilton_child06 Ashton’s bib was made by her mom – how cute is that! Check out emm bee xoxo for more information on these great handmade bibs! liz_czinege_photography_niagara_hamilton_child07Happy Birthday sweet girl!

Allie’s First Year | Niagara Newborn and Child Photographer

I’m at a loss for what to say about these beautiful photos.

It has been such a pleasure watching Allie grow this past year. I first photographed her when she was only 6 days old! Her parents were so sweet to have thought of me to document the beginning of their new baby’s life.

Now a year and four photo shoots later; Allie is celebrating her 1st birthday. We had so much fun with a pink and white themed birthday portrait session. This girls smile can light up anyone’s world!

I hope you enjoy watching Allie grow through her portraits as much as I have!
