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. Those big brown eyes, ahhhh. Perfection.
Cake smashes are a lot of fun. 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. This dress was a gift from Greece, doesn’t she look like a little goddess?! I love it, suites her so well!
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.
The dog’s wanted to be part of the portrait session too, photo bombing every chance they got. 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!)
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!I am in LOVE with the family portrait, it really doesn’t get much more natural then this.
After the session I was invited to stay for tea and cheese – who can say no to that?! Especially when it involved loose tea and actual tea cups! Afterwards Niamh, her mom and I snuck out to take a few more photographs which turned out to be my favourites from the session!
