The Richard’s | Niagara Family Photographer

Family farm, barn, field, storm clouds, boots and HORSES – this session was a dream!

I’ve known the Richard’s since high school when Shelby and I became friends. This is th second time I’ve photographed them – a gift for Dad! – and it’s always a pleasure. I mean c’mon, look how gorgeous this family is!  We just beat the rain by a couple of minutes, it made for the perfect sky and lighting. Everyone wants a beautiful clear blue sky on photo day, but in reality an overcast day is the best kind of day. No squinting, no shadows, perfect!  When Dad mentioned including the Draft Horses I was all for it! Aren’t they beautiful?!??

Danielle | Niagara Maternity Photographer

Isn’t she glowing with that perfect little bump?! Less than nine weeks to go until Danielle gets to meet her little boy and I get my meet my newest nephew!! I’m beyond excited to have another little one to love and cuddle.

Grace | A Girl and her Horse | Niagara Child Photographer

Grace-238 LCP

This portrait session is one that is near and dear to my heart. A few months ago I came up with an idea for a stylized session. I posted on my Facebook page that I was looking for someone with both horses and young children. Sandra was so kind to give me complete creative freedom over her beautiful daughter Grace, as well as her gorgeous horses, Candy and Sunny.

I leave a little bit of who I am behind in every portrait session, which is what makes them one of a kind. But every once in a while I get the chance to put my entire heart into a project and leave behind a piece of my soul. As an artist it is incredible to see an idea come to life before your eyes.

Eliza | Niagara Child Photographer

Liz Czinege Child Photographer Niagara Hamilton01

A few weeks ago I came up with an idea for this shoot when I was inspired by a huge field of wild flowers. When I went back to look at the location to make sure everything was ready to go, I found that the City of Port Colborne had cut down the field of wild flowers – the worst feeling for a photographer. So after a few days of heartbroken searching, I found this location, not as good as the first but an adequate substitute.

Not wanting to miss the opportunity again, I bought a dress for Eliza, painted her nails, made her hair ‘pretty’ and headed to the spot.

And now – my wild child niece.

I would give anything for her curls, so beautiful!Liz Czinege Child Photographer Niagara Hamilton07 Liz Czinege Child Photographer Niagara Hamilton04

I am in LOVE with this photo. So natural! Just admiring the flowers..Liz Czinege Child Photographer Niagara Hamilton05

This is what happens when the photographer tries to be in a photo – uncooperative kids! This is about the best I can expect from them, but I love them all the same! Liz Czinege Child Photographer Niagara Hamilton09

Since my niece was born 3 years ago, I have photographed her twice a year. (A little over due on this one..) I love capturing these portraits of her, because along with watching her grow, I’ve also been able to watch my photography grow and develop into my own style. These photos and the ones I took of her last May are definitely my favourites to date!
