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. 

The Winner!

Here are some more of Chase’s portraits. I love his face in this photograph. So sweet!

Lucas | Ancaster Child Photographer

Lucas is one! This guy had so many smiles for me and kept me on my toes – he’s on the move!! We headed outside to get a couple fall portraits before we let Lucas dive into his cake. The colours were perfect! I love the drool in this photograph, doesn’t that cake look delicious! Lucas wasn’t too sure about his cake. He didn’t like the taste but still kept going back for more.  I always love capturing this post cake detail shot. Those toes get me every time.

My friend made a tiny human! A couple of years ago I was in their wedding party, now here I am photographing their little guy. Alex is such a sweet boy, I love him to bits already. We had to keep his diaper on for the session, which made for some unique images that are completely out of my comfort zone – and I LOVE THEM. liz czinege niagara grimsby newborn photographer02So snuggly all wrapped up. liz czinege niagara grimsby newborn photographer03liz czinege niagara grimsby newborn photographer04Did this photo make you yawn? liz czinege niagara grimsby newborn photographer05The wall in their home matched this set up perfectly. liz czinege niagara grimsby newborn photographer06Congrats you two, I couldn’t be happier for you!! liz czinege niagara grimsby newborn photographer07
