Aribella’s First Birthday | Niagara Child Photographer


Aribella is such a beautiful little girl. We wanted to come up with something unique for her portraits, and when I stumbled across these steps, I knew they would be perfect for her session. A little secret garden inspiration.

First birthday’s are one of my favourite sessions to photograph. Seeing how much LCP’s newborns have grown in a year is always so special. AdobeBridgeBatchRenameTemp1liz_czinege_child_photographer_hamilton_niagara_01Those big brown eyes, ahhhh. Perfection.

I love watching the child’s face when they realize that they can eat the cake and that their parents aren’t going to say no. AdobeBridgeBatchRenameTemp8liz_czinege_child_photographer_hamilton_niagara_09AdobeBridgeBatchRenameTemp7liz_czinege_child_photographer_hamilton_niagara_08 This dress was a gift from Greece, doesn’t she look like a little goddess?!

Niamh | 1 Year | Hamilton Child Photographer


Miss Niamh (pronounced Neve) is almost one! We held the session at Niamh’s grandparents farm in Beamsville. Surrounded by a vineyard, an orchard and Irish accents, I can honestly say it was such a pleasure to photograph Niamh and her family. With Niamh’s grandparents visiting from Ireland, it was a great opportunity to capture portraits with both set of Grandparents for Niamh’s first birthday.

But that’s okay, because by the end of the session I was in love with these rescued Vizsla’s (they’re Hungarian hunting dogs, so I felt a connection to them HA!)

liz_czinege_photography_niagara_hamilton_children03 I’ve had “You’ve got the cutest little baby face, there isn’t another one to take your place.” on repeat in my head since I photographed Niamh. Her grandparents sang it repeatedly to make her smile, whatever works!liz_czinege_photography_niagara_hamilton_children05I am in LOVE with the family portrait, it really doesn’t get much more natural then this. liz_czinege_photography_niagara_hamilton_children06

Afterwards Niamh, her mom and I snuck out to take a few more photographs which turned out to be my favourites from the session! liz_czinege_photography_niagara_hamilton_children08liz_czinege_photography_niagara_hamilton_children07
