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!

The votes have been counted – and double counted – and the winner is in! Congratulations to this little Ghostbuster, Chase! It was a very close race this year with the runner up only 9 votes behind. Thank you to everyone who came out to the mini sessions and participated in the costume contest, it’s been another great year!

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.

Alex | Niagara Newborn Photographer

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

Stella&Amelia | Niagara Newborn Photographer

liz czinege niagara grimsby newborn twin photographer01What’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!

They look so sweet on the girls wrapped in the lace. liz czinege niagara grimsby newborn twin photographer04It’s up for debate whether these two are identical or not, what are your thoughts?liz czinege niagara grimsby newborn twin photographer05At one point Stella (left) was fussing, Amelia threw her arm across Stella and she almost instantaneously stopped fussing. Twins amaze me! liz czinege niagara grimsby newborn twin photographer06Two babes in a basket, the blanket they’re laying on was made by their grandmother.

Tiana | GTA Newborn Photographer

I can’t say enough about Tiana, she was just P-E-R-F-E-C-T! She slept for the entire session and stayed exactly how I placed her. I drove all the way to Ajax to capture her newborn portraits and she definitely made it worth the trip! After a VERY long stretch of boys it was a refreshing change to be able to get a little girly with this newborn session. Plus did I mention how adorable she is?!
Oh man, those lips! Just perfect! Mom was a little worried when I got there because Tiana still had her umbilical cord clip on, but we did our best to hide it. Doesn’t she just look like a little peanut in these photographs? Fingers and toes, my favourite!  My babies have been NAILING these shots lately (the two above and one below). I find these are the hardest poses to get them into, and either the baby likes it or not, no negotiation.  I saved my favourite photo for last. 

Isabella | Ancaster Child Photographer

Isabella turned three recently and we celebrated with her eighth portrait session! I am so honoured that I have had the opportunity to document her growth. It’s been so fun seeing her personally change and develop through her portraits. She was SO silly for these portraits, and I love it!  This face is the cutest! See you next year Isabella!

Cole | Niagara Child Photographer

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!
