Isabella | Ancaster Child Photographer

Isabella turned three recently and we celebrated with her eighth portrait session! I am so honoured that I have had the opportunity to document her growth. It’s been so fun seeing her personally change and develop through her portraits. She was SO silly for these portraits, and I love it!  This face is the cutest! See you next year Isabella!

Ava | Niagara Child Photographer

liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton01 Ava is one and she celebrated with portraits and a cake smash! And by she I mean her mom and dad, because really.. Ava had no idea what was going on but she did know that she wasn’t a fan of it. I got quite a few evil eyes from her throughout the session but they were so cute I forgave her ;)liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton02 liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton03 liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton05liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton04 liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton06 liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton07 liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton08 liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton09 The lighting wasn’t the greatest but I couldn’t pass up a portrait in front of the beautiful sunflowers! liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton10 How adorable does Ava look in this tutu?!
liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton11 heheh, baby belly buttons. liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton12 Gorgeous setup for Ava’s cake smash. I love when ideas come together! This is exactly what mom and I had in mind during our pre-consultation!liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton13 liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton14 The many faces of Ava. Throughout the sessions Ava was KILLING me with her hilarious faces. Editing her portraits was definitely amusing, bottom right takes the cake though, I think she had enough cake!liz_czinege_child_photographer_niagara_hamilton15

As you all probably know, I am a sucker for a strong black and white portrait and it doesn’t get much better than these two! I love the pure emotion expressed in these images. So much love.
liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara_02liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara_11liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara_03I love photographing maternity portraits and then meeting the new baby a few days after they’re born. Lesley is nine pounds of pure sweetness. liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara_10liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara_05liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara_06liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara_09We’ve been talking about this portrait since our maternity consultation, while Lesley’s dad was still in the process of making this beautiful rocking horse for her. This one portrait took an hour to achieve, but it was 100% worth it!!! liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara_08They’re just the sweetest, look at them! I can’t wait to watch them grow. liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara_07

McKenna | Niagara Newborn Photographer

liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara_01 McKenna was hands down thee best baby I have photographed to date! She slept for the entire 2 hour session, stayed in her poses and when she wasn’t sleeping she was happily laying on the blanket – wait for it – SMILING at me. liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara_02liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara_04 All her little bits, so mom and dad don’t forget. They grow so quickly!liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara_05 liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara_06 On top of being a perfect baby to pose, she is also way too adorable. Like com’mon, look at her hair! liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara_07 liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara_08 McKenna’s room is blue – and I for one LOVE it. It matched perfectly with my little bucket. Two years later I finally got to use it!liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara_09 I wasn’t joking when I said McKenna was smiling at me – those are not gas grins. She legitimately is smiling, it’s amazing! liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara_10 liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara_15 liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara_16

Mama and baby – plus that little grin, ahhhhh.liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara_13 I’m a sucker for a good black and white portrait. liz_czinege_newborn_photographer_hamilton_niagara_14Dad wasn’t photo-ready, but that just means that I have to come back when McKenna is a bit older for family portraits. (I secretly not so secretly can’t wait to watch McKenna grow, she’s going to be one gorgeous girl!)
