My beautiful friend is due with baby number two! Tara and Derek were a bride and groom of mine back in 2012. Since then we have become close friends and I’ve photographed TWO maternity sessions, Alexis’ newborn and first year of life, various Springs, Halloweens and Christmas’ and I’m to say that I will be there to capture the birth of this little one with my first ever birth session – wish us BOTH luck!
Sheena was gifted Maternity and Newborn portraits, she is one luck lady! She was a little nervous about her portraits, but she totally rocked her session. After some TLC from Hair by Ash and Lashed by Courtney we were on our way to Botanical Gardens.
Sheena and Myles were so adorable together, I love when Dads get involved with the session! These two (and a half) plus that setting sun, perfection!
Gosh! How adorable are these two, seriously!!
I can’t wait to meet their little girl in a few short weeks!
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!
Once again I have had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful family this time with one more addition, little Rosalie! The original six Simpsons. A sibling portrait.
Love all these photographs of the kids, they really show their individual personalities! Such a little man, so handsome! Incase you were wondering what he was holding. Boys will be boys! This guy did not want me to take his photograph so I had to sneak a couple in. He was also stung THREE times during the session and was such a trooper. I couldn’t believe it, he did amazing! Julia, the star of Jewels for Jules, always so happy. Her smile is so contagious, I just love her to bits! The best little sister around.
What’s better than one baby? TWO! Amelia and Stella were my first ever twins. They both rocked their session. I was shocked that the part I was most concerned about (posing two babies at the same time!) turned out to be the easiest poses of the day. They did not want to be alone for their individual poses.
We cut off their hospital bracelets after I arrived and I was telling them apart by the acne on their faces. (Plus Stella’s skin was a little more pink and Amelia’s a little more olive.) Hopefully Mom and Dad are having an easy time telling them apart still!
Amelia, Stella, Stella left, Amelia right. So excited I got to use this headband set! They look so sweet on the girls wrapped in the lace. It’s up for debate whether these two are identical or not, what are your thoughts?At one point Stella (left) was fussing, Amelia threw her arm across Stella and she almost instantaneously stopped fussing. Twins amaze me! Two babes in a basket, the blanket they’re laying on was made by their grandmother.
Such a beautiful family. I’m so happy Mom suggested that we do the family portraits in her room!
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?!??
Meet my boyfriend’s nephew, Lucien, the newest member of the family! Little Lucien was so good to me during his newborn session. He slept the entire time – except to feed – but went right back off to sleep. I was able to get so many completely different poses from him – and I even had time to experiment with new poses and angles. Dave and I are a proud Aunt and Uncle! Lucien even let me do these more complicated poses. I’m a happy photographer! Lucien (right) and his big sister (left). You can definitely tell they’re related!
The sweetest little family of 4. From belly to baby. We can’t wait to watch Lucien grow!
Anthony gave me Baby Fever baaaaaaaad. And no wonder, with gorgeous parents like his, he was bound to be handsome! His Mom won this session during my 12 Days of Giveaways and I am so happy she used it to capture his newborn portraits.
Lily loves her little brother, but she was a little reluctant to join in the portraits – that is unless she was allowed to give him kisses! She’s such a sweetheart I could just lay and cuddle with her all day. When I walked into Laura and Steve’s home I fell in love with their huge barn door (made by Steve!) and I knew I had to incorporate it into Anthony’s portraits – that did not disappoint! If you follow my photography, then you know that this ‘bum up’ pose is my favourite. I do it during all of my newborn sessions, maybe it’s getting old, but parents always love the rolls! Meet the Steelers and Jays newest fan! Dad wanted to incorporate his first baseball glove into Anthony’s portraits, I couldn’t say no.
Cole will be turning one in a few weeks. I was so happy when his Mom contacted me about doing birthday portraits. I love seeing how much they have grown since their newborn portraits and what better first birthday present – something that he will cherish for a lifetime. Cole’s big brother is so patient with him, and with me! Mom brought a “Chip and Dale” outfit for Cole to wear. Isn’t it the cutest thing ever?! We all know this feeling – we really shouldn’t but we’re going to anyways, because really.. who can refuse cake?! Cole wasn’t sure about the taste of the cake, but regardless he kept going back for more!
Nobody ever said newborn portraits are just for humans right? I had the pleasure of photographing my best friend’s newest addition – 9 week old Sawyer. He is a GORGEOUS Chocolate Lab/Border Collie Mix. I couldn’t wait to take these portraits and meet Sawyer. We definitely got some cuddles in after the session!
Some of my Brides&Grooms might know Vicki as my second shooter – I love working with her! She’s from the Cambridge/KW area if you are in need of a photographer up there. Check out her site; vickirivers.com
Puppy smooches! Sawyer has the most magical eyes, you can’t truly tell what colour they are. One minute they’re green, the next they’re blue grey – whatever the colour they make me melt!
Mama holds Sayer like this all the time so obviously we had to capture it – before he gets too big. And it couldn’t have possibly started snowing at a better time! *heart eyes*
I can’t wait for my next visit with this soon-to-be-very-large little guy!
