Hunter | Niagara Child Photographer

liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_child_photographer01One year ago this handsome little man came into the world and I can’t imagine my life without him. I’m one proud Auntie! It was one of those sessions where everything worked out; the trees were perfect, Hunter was a willing model and the sun was shining. I couldn’t ask for anything better. liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_child_photographer02 liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_child_photographer03 liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_child_photographer04 I can’t get enough of this stinker grin. Someone is up to no good, just like his Daddy! liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_child_photographer05 Hunter is such a happy boy, always smiling and laughing.

liz_czinege_child_photographer_hamilton_niagara3I can’t believe Hunter is three months already!! I could go on and on and on about this little guy, but I’ll spare you all the proud Auntie speech – this time! liz_czinege_child_photographer_hamilton_niagara1

Such a happy boy!
liz_czinege_child_photographer_hamilton_niagara4For real though, how cute are baby bums! liz_czinege_child_photographer_hamilton_niagara2 liz_czinege_child_photographer_hamilton_niagara5I love you Hunter boy. xo

Matthias | Niagara Child Photographer

liz_czinege_child_photographer_hamilton_niagara_01 I don’t even know where to begin with this post. This is Matthias, my oldest nephew, the first kid I knew how to love unconditionally. He also has ADHD and Aspergers, so the fact that these photographs even exist to make this blog post is a miracle. It is very rare that Matthias will sit for me and let me take his portrait – it is rare that Matthias will do anything he doesn’t want to do without a fight. That being said, when he isn’t being stubborn, he is a hilarious and loving boy. He is always willing to give hugs or crack a joke. He may not know how to read (we’re slooooowly working away on that) but he can tell you more about dinosaurs and the ocean than any other person I know. liz_czinege_child_photographer_hamilton_niagara_02I had to include some of his poses, these are definitely him, always trying to make people laugh or the complete opposite – scare them. liz_czinege_child_photographer_hamilton_niagara_03 liz_czinege_child_photographer_hamilton_niagara_04 These two are growing up WAY too fast for my liking!liz_czinege_child_photographer_hamilton_niagara_05 Eliza couldn’t resist being in a few of the portraits, so excuse the poor outfit choice. That being said, I LOVE these portraits, it’s been way too long since I’ve captured some really good ones of them. liz_czinege_child_photographer_hamilton_niagara_06 liz_czinege_child_photographer_hamilton_niagara_07 These two might fight like cats and dogs, but when it comes to things that are really important, they pull together. As much as Matthias takes care of his little sister, his little sister needs to take more care of him. Giving in when she knows he won’t, keeping him in line and out of trouble and sighing rather than getting frustrated when he is having a meltdown. She is wise way beyond her years. And when she says things like “It is such a beautiful day.” I know she’s got an old soul.  liz_czinege_child_photographer_hamilton_niagara_08 I love a little side by side comparison. The photographs on the left are my all time favourite photographs of Matthias and Eliza from 2012. This one was completely unposed – both times. They love each other so much. liz_czinege_child_photographer_hamilton_niagara_09 I had to do a little recreation if this image, it’s been hanging as a 16×16 on my parents wall since 2012. (Look at their hands, that was totally not me. Some things never change!) liz_czinege_child_photographer_hamilton_niagara_10I can’t wait to see the people these two become.

Eliza | Niagara Child Photographer

This all started last saturday when I had to take my nephew’s school photos. Of course, he was making a silly face in every single one that the school provided! So I tested my lighting on a far more willing subject – my niece! Although studio photography is not my style – at all – I love these 4 of her! Especially the last one, she’s definitely related to me!liz czinege niagara child photographer4

This basically sums up how Matthias feels about having his picture taken. Montage - Matthias

We decided to head outside and capture a few more to add to Eliza’s Life Series Collection. I know she’s my niece, but how fricken cute is she??!liz czinege niagara child photographer5 liz czinege niagara child photographer1 liz czinege niagara child photographer3 liz czinege niagara child photographer2
