On one of the hottest days of the summer I had the honour of photographing this gorgeous family. Thanks for sticking it out in the heat and being so patient! Little Jessa took 45 minutes to warm up to me and wanted NOTHING to do with the session. Which made for some real adorable pouty faces. The sweetest siblings! These candid photographs are my favourite! Doing anything to get Jessa engaged in the session. Jessa’s little hands, so adorable! I had a lot of fun with you guys. Thanks for not judging me while I made a fool of my self trying to win Jessa over!
I wish I could share every image from this session with Monica and Holden! So I’m sorry for the over sharing in this post – but I just couldn’t narrow it down any further! Monica is 35 weeks along and she has the cutest bump ever! I love how much these two enjoyed their session. I stumbled across this location while going for a quick walk around the block from my apartment. I instantly knew that I had to shoot here – so many different looks in one location! This Mama ROCKED it!
Monica loves bridges, we had to stop for this one! The sun was definitely on our side, absolutely perfect!
This little Tom Sawyer just happens to be my nephew. (How lucky am I?!) It was one of those last minute shoots where everything just fell into place. The location, the outfit, the theme – all on the fly. I love photographing my niece and nephews because I get 100% complete creative freedom! This “fishing” scene is something we were talking about back in March and again briefly before this session. So when Hunter asked if he could go fishing we were ALL over that! He had fun and was completely co-operative. WIN WIN!
He loved his suspenders. And somehow never learnt that snapping them on himself hurts, quite entertaining.
This handsome little gaffer. I know I’m his Aunt but I think he’s pretty darn adorable! As much as I love every other photograph from this session, this one is my favourite. SO HUNTER! Every year I take a photograph with my niece and nephews in the same pose. It’s great to look back on every year and see how they’ve grown. I love these three with all of my heart! My favourite portraits are the natural ones. The one on the right completely represent them at this age.
Cole gets more adorable every time that I see him. He was so good for his 9 month portraits! We got so many smiles, and this time – no grandma required! Those eyes! I had to post Cole’s adorable little faces. I can’t wait to photograph his birthday portraits in a couple of months!
My beautiful friend is due with baby number two! Tara and Derek were a bride and groom of mine back in 2012. Since then we have become close friends and I’ve photographed TWO maternity sessions, Alexis’ newborn and first year of life, various Springs, Halloweens and Christmas’ and I’m to say that I will be there to capture the birth of this little one with my first ever birth session – wish us BOTH luck! I’m so happy with how Tara’s portraits came out. Thanks to the ladies who did her hair and make-up, you girls did an amazing job! So in love with this growing family. Lex NAILED the session you’d never be able to tell that it was 3 degrees outside and they were all freezing!Tight squeeze!These two are high school sweethearts and pretty much the cutest. Dad snuck in a quick kiss while I was posing them, I love Tara’s reaction.

Happy Halloween from Liz Czinege Photography – and good luck!
My friend made a tiny human! A couple of years ago I was in their wedding party, now here I am photographing their little guy. Alex is such a sweet boy, I love him to bits already. We had to keep his diaper on for the session, which made for some unique images that are completely out of my comfort zone – and I LOVE THEM. So snuggly all wrapped up. Did this photo make you yawn? The wall in their home matched this set up perfectly. Congrats you two, I couldn’t be happier for you!!
What’s better than one baby? TWO! Amelia and Stella were my first ever twins. They both rocked their session. I was shocked that the part I was most concerned about (posing two babies at the same time!) turned out to be the easiest poses of the day. They did not want to be alone for their individual poses.
We cut off their hospital bracelets after I arrived and I was telling them apart by the acne on their faces. (Plus Stella’s skin was a little more pink and Amelia’s a little more olive.) Hopefully Mom and Dad are having an easy time telling them apart still!
Amelia, Stella, Stella left, Amelia right. So excited I got to use this headband set! They look so sweet on the girls wrapped in the lace. It’s up for debate whether these two are identical or not, what are your thoughts?At one point Stella (left) was fussing, Amelia threw her arm across Stella and she almost instantaneously stopped fussing. Twins amaze me! Two babes in a basket, the blanket they’re laying on was made by their grandmother.
Such a beautiful family. I’m so happy Mom suggested that we do the family portraits in her room!
I can’t say enough about Tiana, she was just P-E-R-F-E-C-T! She slept for the entire session and stayed exactly how I placed her. I drove all the way to Ajax to capture her newborn portraits and she definitely made it worth the trip! After a VERY long stretch of boys it was a refreshing change to be able to get a little girly with this newborn session. Plus did I mention how adorable she is?!
Oh man, those lips! Just perfect! Mom was a little worried when I got there because Tiana still had her umbilical cord clip on, but we did our best to hide it. Doesn’t she just look like a little peanut in these photographs? Fingers and toes, my favourite! My babies have been NAILING these shots lately (the two above and one below). I find these are the hardest poses to get them into, and either the baby likes it or not, no negotiation. I saved my favourite photo for last.
