Everly was in the studio for her 4 month portraits as part of her Baby’s First Year package. We waited a little longer for these ones because this girl is a little cranky.. I mean, colic. I was so nervous about this session, Everly cries, all. the. time. so I was worried that we wouldn’t get any portraits of her smiling, or even just looking at the camera. BUT SHE DID AMAZING! AND I captured her laughing for the first time EVER. So cool! I am in LOVE with these photographs. So simple. SO MUCH HAPPINESS IN ONE PHOTOGRAPH!
EVERLY. COME ON. That squinty, scrunchy pure happiness face. SO ADORABLE. There is just something about her face in this photograph, so much wonder. Oh, the many faces of Ev!
When I’m culling through photographs from a session for the first time I never know what I’m going to come across in the next photo – closed eyes, funny faces – sometimes I get a good chuckle out of them. But this photograph of Everly had me snorting. She went from happy to angry in about one second. I wish I could get this photograph at every 3 month session! Sleeping babies are the best! After a brief nap, Everly was ready for round two! These were the only photographs that Mama wanted to do.
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!
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!
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 below image pretty much sums up how Lukas felt about his newborn portraits. He was having NONE of it. But that’s okay because we still got some images that Mom and Dad love and we have 3 more sessions in his first year to make up for it! So snuggly! Newborn piggies! Lukas looks like the Thinker in this image. So cute!
Aleks and Brian are letting me join them during the first year of their baby’s life! I will be capturing maternity, newborn, 3 months, 9 months and one year portraits of their little guy. I can’t wait! For their maternity session they were up for anything. We took a drive along my favourite road stopping occasionally to take some portraits and get eaten by mosquitoes. And then we headed to the beach. When I said they were up for anything, I mean anything! I was so excited when Aleks agreed to go in the water. I’ve never had a Mama brave enough to hop in but I think all three of us are glad she did! The images of Aleks are stunning. (*Air Five* to Brian for hopping in the water too and helping out!)It is hard to choose my favourite image from this session but this one is definitely up there!
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!
Happy 6 Months Nicholas! Times flies! I was loving this kids rocking’ style during his session last week. Denim and plaid, my favourites! Last time I photographed Nicholas he was so serious, this time he was all smiles! I love capturing portraits for the “Baby’s First Year” package. It’s awesome to watch them grow and hit milestones. Last time I was Nicholas he could barely hold up his head, now he is such a strong boy!
I love capturing the serious look on kids faces when they’re staring right at the camera, there is just something about it. Hehehe, love that little chin! Here’s a little triptych of his growth to date; see you in another 3 months little man!
Nicholas was in the studio for his 3 months portraits as part of his “Baby’s First Year” Package. It feels like yesterday that I was waiting to hear of his arrival and now he’s already 3 months old! I can’t believe how much he looks like his sister Isabella. Nicholas did so well keeping his head up, such a strong boy!!
See you in a couple months!
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! Dad was able to make it to Isabella’s last session and she had nothing but smiles for him – usually she’s VERY serious.
I’m a sucker for those big brown eyes! 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. I love these two photographs, just completely covered in cake. So much fun!!
