Stella&Amelia | Niagara Newborn Photographer

liz czinege niagara grimsby newborn twin photographer01What’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!

They look so sweet on the girls wrapped in the lace. liz czinege niagara grimsby newborn twin photographer04It’s up for debate whether these two are identical or not, what are your thoughts?liz czinege niagara grimsby newborn twin photographer05At one point Stella (left) was fussing, Amelia threw her arm across Stella and she almost instantaneously stopped fussing. Twins amaze me! liz czinege niagara grimsby newborn twin photographer06Two babes in a basket, the blanket they’re laying on was made by their grandmother.

Tiana | GTA Newborn Photographer

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. 

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?!??

Lucien | Port Credit Newborn Photographer

Meet my boyfriend’s nephew, Lucien, the newest member of the family! Little Lucien was so good to me during his newborn session. He slept the entire time – except to feed – but went right back off to sleep. I was able to get so many completely different poses from him – and I even had time to experiment with new poses and angles. Dave and I are a proud Aunt and Uncle! Lucien even let me do these more complicated poses. I’m a happy photographer!  Lucien (right) and his big sister (left). You can definitely tell they’re related!
The sweetest little family of 4.  From belly to baby. We can’t wait to watch Lucien grow! 

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! 

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!

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! 

Henry | Niagara Newborn Photographer

Henry was born 8 weeks early and spent those first weeks in the NICU at McMaster. We captured his newborn portraits when he was 11 weeks old. When I met him he had doubled his birth weight! His mama asked if we could capture some special portraits to document his time in the NICU, of course I was more than willing to oblige! Henry has gone from micro-premie diapers to a size 1 in his 11 weeks.

 

Mama and her boys.

So much love for his little brother.
Henry had sooooo many smiles during his session.  For an 11 week old baby, Henry still acted very much like a newborn and was super sleepy. I love when I can capture some open eyed portraits though.  Henry had the sides of his head shaved for procedures in the NICU, this kids been through a lot so far in his life.  I can’t wait to see Henry again when he is big and strong!

 

Anthony | Niagara Newborn Photographer

Anthony gave me Baby Fever baaaaaaaad. And no wonder, with gorgeous parents like his, he was bound to be handsome! His Mom won this session during my 12 Days of Giveaways and I am so happy she used it to capture his newborn portraits.

Lily loves her little brother, but she was a little reluctant to join in the portraits – that is unless she was allowed to give him kisses! She’s such a sweetheart I could just lay and cuddle with her all day.  When I walked into Laura and Steve’s home I fell in love with their huge barn door (made by Steve!) and I knew I had to incorporate it into Anthony’s portraits – that did not disappoint!  If you follow my photography, then you know that this ‘bum up’ pose is my favourite. I do it during all of my newborn sessions, maybe it’s getting old, but parents always love the rolls!  Meet the Steelers and Jays newest fan! Dad wanted to incorporate his first baseball glove into Anthony’s portraits, I couldn’t say no.
