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. 

Isabella | Ancaster Child Photographer

I’ve been photographing Isabella for FOUR YEARS! It’s been so special witnessing her personality develop though her portraits. One thing that hasn’t changed – that adorable nose wrinkle!!  What is a birthday shoot without confetti?!  Isabella LOVES to dance!  There’s something about this photograph, even though the composition is all wrong, I love how it perfectly expresses her free spirit!  Four years, nine portrait sessions.

Ivorie | Niagara Newborn Photographer

Ivorie Pearl made Mommy and Daddy wait extra long to meet her, but she made it oh so worth it! She has the most delicate features and so perfectly suits her name!
Ivorie decided she didn’t want to sleep for the remainder of her session but I got some wonderful bright-eyed portraits.  ..and sleepy yawns!

Sheena | Niagara Maternity Photographer

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 | Niagara Newborn Photographer

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 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.

Gage | Niagara Newborn Photographer

Gage is a very special Rainbow Baby, hand picked by his sister in heaven. Gage was delivered a couple weeks early, but you’d never be able to tell. Such a beautiful healthy little guy. I loved every second on his session! The belly on him though, so adorable!  Mom and Dad are country lovers, I had to add in some fur!
