Alexis & Everly | Niagara Child Photographer

I always have fun photographing this girls. And not JUST because I’m their honorary Auntie. I love capturing how caring Alexis is towards her little sister. And Everly never fails to keep things interesting!  I can’t believe how much Alexis has grown. Slow down little girl! Love me some denim in black and white!  I got the biggest chuckle from Alexis, no matter how much Everly was freaking out beside her, she continued to look at the camera and smile. 

The Cole’s | Niagara Family Photographer

The Cole’s first portraits as a family of FIVE! I’m a little late on all of these Spring sessions, but they are definitely worth the share. I love natural portraits! Boys will be boys, right?

Thin’s | Niagara Newborn Photographer

I love this family. The only time I ever get nervous before a session is when I am photographing friends for the first time. I always feel so much pressure to get the right shots, the perfect shots. But these guys nailed it!  When you love your brother so much you just have to put him in a choke hold. That portrait makes me laugh, 100% accurate to their relationship. Parents always get stressed out when children don’t behave how we want for the session, but I always get some good ones! When I photograph my niece and nephews, the candid shots are my favourite. So natural and so them, as they grow – those are the photographs that I love the most because it reminds me of how they truly were at that age.  I love this photograph, reminds me of an album cover.  Ruby, the sweetest daddy’s girl! She is the BIGGEST suck and is so patient with the boys. 

William | Niagara Newborn Photographer

On a snowy day in January I drove to Port Colborne to photograph William. When I arrived Mom and Dad had a fire going in the fireplace, it was nice and cozy for little William – and me! Is there anything better than a real wood fire?!! At 6 pounds and 19 inches, you would never know that he was born more than a month early.    That little tuff of hair. Too cute not to capture!  When I saw a bunch of buffalo plaid in the house I knew I had to incorporate it into William’s portraits.  This family is so sweet. I’m happy that Dad agreed to be in a couple portraits. William had some smiles for us too!

River | Niagara Newborn Photographer

Little River was full of smiles and put up quite the fight. But we got the sweetest open eyed portraits of this handsome little man.  I loved taking portraits of River and his big sister. She loves her little brother so much! Bright eyed and adorable.  I am so amused by these portraits. River decided to poop – without a diaper – mid pose. Priceless!

I’m so happy for this beautiful family. I can’t wait to see them again.

Nicholas | Ancaster Child Photographer

Nicholas is two! We captured his birthday portraits a day before his birthday. After seven portrait sessions this little guys is a professional!  And we finally got an image of Isabella and Nicholas together! 

Everly | Niagara Child Photographer

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 | 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! 

Everly | Niagara Newborn Photographer

Everly, you met her a couple weeks ago when I blogged her birth session, now here is her newborn session!! I came back to do a couple more portraits because of unforeseen circumstances, but it was TOTALLY worth it!  I love me some newborn smiles.  Alexis is the BEST big sister! I got this portrait without any Photoshop! 3 dogs, a 4 year old and a newborn all co-operating, it was a miracle!! Squishy snuggles.
Safe in Daddies arms.
