Boys will be boys! liz czinege niagara grimsby family photographer09This guy did not want me to take his photograph so I had to sneak a couple in. He was also stung THREE times during the session and was such a trooper. I couldn’t believe it, he did amazing! liz czinege niagara grimsby family photographer11Julia, the star of Jewels for Jules, always so happy.

Pepper, Dom & Kya | Niagara Pet Photographer

liz czinege niagara grimsby pet photographer01Yes, I photograph fur-babies too!
Meet Kya, Dom and Pepper. They were so well behaved during their session. I like to think it’s because I’m awesome and they loved me, but I think they just loved the cheese they were getting as their reward! Regardless, I had a lot of fun with these three and I got lots of kisses!
Handsome Dom,  liz czinege niagara grimsby pet photographer02Miss Kya, so pretty.liz czinege niagara grimsby pet photographer03Pepper, the baby of the bunch. liz czinege niagara grimsby pet photographer04I’m in LOVE with these classic black and whites of Dom and Kya. liz czinege niagara grimsby pet photographer05Don’t those eyes just look into your soul. liz czinege niagara grimsby pet photographer07liz czinege niagara grimsby pet photographer06

Aleks | Niagara Maternity Photographer

liz czinege niagara grimsby maternity photographer01Aleks and Brian are letting me join them during the first year of their baby’s life! I will be capturing maternity, newborn, 3 months, 9 months and one year portraits of their little guy. I can’t wait! For their maternity session they were up for anything. We took a drive along my favourite road stopping occasionally to take some portraits and get eaten by mosquitoes. And then we headed to the beach. liz czinege niagara grimsby maternity photographer02liz czinege niagara grimsby maternity photographer03When I said they were up for anything, I mean anything! I was so excited when Aleks agreed to go in the water. I’ve never had a Mama brave enough to hop in but I think all three of us are glad she did! The images of Aleks are stunning. (*Air Five* to Brian for hopping in the water too and helping out!)liz czinege niagara grimsby maternity photographer04liz czinege niagara grimsby maternity photographer05It is hard to choose my favourite image from this session but this one is definitely up there! liz czinege niagara grimsby maternity photographer06

Amanda&Joel | Niagara Engagement Photographer

I met Amanda and Joel for the first time at their engagement session (since they live out of town) and I have never laughed so much during a session. It’s clear to see that these two are made for each other!  When we arrived at Botanical Gardens it was down pouring. Luckily it stopped and we were able to dodge the rain – during the session at least.. Thanks again for saving me when my car wouldn’t start..in the rain..with full bladders. If it was any other client I had just met, I would never have sent the “Do you have booster cables?” text. But I feel like you two are long lost friends and I can’t wait to photograph your wedding!  

The Richard’s | Niagara Family Photographer

Family farm, barn, field, storm clouds, boots and HORSES – this session was a dream!

I’ve known the Richard’s since high school when Shelby and I became friends. This is th second time I’ve photographed them – a gift for Dad! – and it’s always a pleasure. I mean c’mon, look how gorgeous this family is!  We just beat the rain by a couple of minutes, it made for the perfect sky and lighting. Everyone wants a beautiful clear blue sky on photo day, but in reality an overcast day is the best kind of day. No squinting, no shadows, perfect!  When Dad mentioned including the Draft Horses I was all for it! Aren’t they beautiful?!??

Rob&Melissa | Niagara Wedding Photographer

These high school sweethearts are getting married! Rob & Melissa started the session a little uncomfortable in front of the camera, but it made for some super adorable candid shots. It didn’t take them long to become pros – that’s one of the main reasons I include a complimentary engagement session with every wedding package. It gives us a chance to get to know each other before the big day and for the Bride & Groom to get comfortable in front of the camera.  These two are way too sweet. 
These two rocked their session!  I can’t wait to celebrate your love in September! 

Danielle | Niagara Maternity Photographer

Happy Mother’s Day to all you Mama’s out there! In honour of Mother’s Day here are a couple portraits from Danielle’s Mini Session by the lake. Dave and I can’t wait to meet the newest addition to the family! 

Sawyer | Niagara Pet Photographer

czinege-photography-niagara-pet-01 Nobody ever said newborn portraits are just for humans right? I had the pleasure of photographing my best friend’s newest addition – 9 week old Sawyer. He is a GORGEOUS Chocolate Lab/Border Collie Mix. I couldn’t wait to take these portraits and meet Sawyer. We definitely got some cuddles in after the session!

Some of my Brides&Grooms might know Vicki as my second shooter – I love working with her! She’s from the Cambridge/KW area if you are in need of a photographer up there. Check out her site; vickirivers.com

Mama holds Sayer like this all the time so obviously we had to capture it – before he gets too big. And it couldn’t have possibly started snowing at a better time! *heart eyes*czinege-photography-niagara-pet-07 czinege-photography-niagara-pet-06

Eliza | Life Series

liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_child_photographer01I finally got around to editing these portraits of my niece from a month ago. Just another addition to her life series. Eliza always looks forward to these because it means she gets new clothes! And I look forward to having new portraits every 6 months. liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_child_photographer02 liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_child_photographer03 liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_child_photographer04 I’m not sure where she gets her attitude from. Just kidding, she gets it from me! These are the images I always love best when I’m photographing my niece and nephews, the ones with the silly faces they make every day. liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_child_photographer05 “Auntie can I twirl my hair and pretend I’m thinking about a boy?” Waaaaaa she’s growing up too quick!liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_child_photographer06 liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_child_photographer07 liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_child_photographer08 I love this girl to the moon and back! liz_czinege_niagara_grimsby_child_photographer09
