Naomi | Niagara Child Photographer

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.)

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!

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.

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
