Hunter | Niagara Child Photographer

This little Tom Sawyer just happens to be my nephew. (How lucky am I?!) It was one of those last minute shoots where everything just fell into place. The location, the outfit, the theme – all on the fly. I love photographing my niece and nephews because I get 100% complete creative freedom! This “fishing” scene is something we were talking about back in March and again briefly before this session. So when Hunter asked if he could go fishing we were ALL over that! He had fun and was completely co-operative. WIN WIN!
He loved his suspenders. And somehow never learnt that snapping them on himself hurts, quite entertaining.
This handsome little gaffer. I know I’m his Aunt but I think he’s pretty darn adorable!  As much as I love every other photograph from this session, this one is my favourite. SO HUNTER!  Every year I take a photograph with my niece and nephews in the same pose. It’s great to look back on every year and see how they’ve grown.  I love these three with all of my heart!  My favourite portraits are the natural ones. The one on the right completely represent them at this age.

Cole | Niagara Child Photographer

Cole gets more adorable every time that I see him. He was so good for his 9 month portraits! We got so many smiles, and this time – no grandma required!  Those eyes!  I had to post Cole’s adorable little faces. I can’t wait to photograph his birthday portraits in a couple of months! 

Cole | Niagara Child Photographer

Cole was in the studio for his 4 month portraits a few weeks ago as part of his first year package. He was FULL of smiles, especially when Grandma showed up!
He’s got the cutest little smirk!  What a difference a couple of months makes!
See you in July little guy! 

Henry | Niagara Child Photographer

I captured Henry’s newborn portraits when we was 11 weeks old. He was in the NICU for the first weeks of his life, but he’s sure made up for it quickly! Now Henry is ONE! And is pretty much the happiest little guy ever. He had so many smiles during his session!   There is something I just LOVE about a serious face and a black and white. Red hair and green eyes, isn’t he perfect?! 

When I met him at 11 weeks he had doubled his birth weight! We captured some special portraits to document his time in the NICU. When we photographed Henry’s birthday portraits his mom had something special planned and it turned out perfect! 

 

Nico | Niagara Newborn Photographer

Nico is one of the  oldest newborns I’ve photographed, but never underestimate the power of getting a baby milk drunk! He was so amazing during his session and we got some amazing open eyed portraits.

Posting this solely to show off Nico’s hair. I can’t get over how much he was born with!

I love this angle. Natural and perfect.

One of the perks of me photographing babies in their home is that I get to incorporate Mom and Dad’s decor! How perfect is this wooden bowl?! 

Dad’s suggestion – it worked out perfectly. 

Baby’s first Halloween!

Understandably, it’s very rare that I have a Mom who wants to have portraits taken with their newborn. I was soaking up every second of this session!

Cole | Niagara Newborn Photographer

Cole, two days old and perfect!  I’m so ecstatic that Mom and Dad welcomed me into their home on their first full day home from the hospital. They’re such champs and so laid back! And you could definitely tell during his session, he was the best little guy to photograph! Couldn’t help but include this special blanket! And of course Mom and Dad’s original baby, Maple, had to be included as well!
I can’t wait to photograph Cole in this same spot 4 more times over the next year! As part of his first year package I will get to watch him grow and capture his milestones at 3 months, 9 months and One Year.Maple may have stolen the show! This family portrait is the best! 

The Winner!

The votes have been counted – and double counted – and the winner is in! Congratulations to this little Ghostbuster, Chase! It was a very close race this year with the runner up only 9 votes behind. Thank you to everyone who came out to the mini sessions and participated in the costume contest, it’s been another great year!

Here are some more of Chase’s portraits. I love his face in this photograph. So sweet!

Lucas | Ancaster Child Photographer

Lucas is one! This guy had so many smiles for me and kept me on my toes – he’s on the move!! We headed outside to get a couple fall portraits before we let Lucas dive into his cake. The colours were perfect! I love the drool in this photograph, doesn’t that cake look delicious! Lucas wasn’t too sure about his cake. He didn’t like the taste but still kept going back for more.  I always love capturing this post cake detail shot. Those toes get me every time. 

Gage | Niagara Newborn Photographer

Gage is a very special Rainbow Baby, hand picked by his sister in heaven. Gage was delivered a couple weeks early, but you’d never be able to tell. Such a beautiful healthy little guy. I loved every second on his session! The belly on him though, so adorable!  Mom and Dad are country lovers, I had to add in some fur! 

Alex | Niagara Newborn Photographer

My friend made a tiny human! A couple of years ago I was in their wedding party, now here I am photographing their little guy. Alex is such a sweet boy, I love him to bits already. We had to keep his diaper on for the session, which made for some unique images that are completely out of my comfort zone – and I LOVE THEM. liz czinege niagara grimsby newborn photographer02So snuggly all wrapped up. liz czinege niagara grimsby newborn photographer03liz czinege niagara grimsby newborn photographer04Did this photo make you yawn? liz czinege niagara grimsby newborn photographer05The wall in their home matched this set up perfectly. liz czinege niagara grimsby newborn photographer06Congrats you two, I couldn’t be happier for you!! liz czinege niagara grimsby newborn photographer07
