Naomi | Niagara Child Photographer

This little cutie turned two this week. And when I went to look for the blog post to share, I realized that I never posted one – WHICH IS CRAZY! – because I loved every single one of the images from this session. So, I decided it’s never too late to share my favourite images from Naomi’s first birthday.

Mama had some amazing ideas for Naomi’s session. Together, we put our heads together and made it a reality!  When mom and dad are this gorgeous, it’s no wonder Naomi is so beautiful! I loved this simple cake setup. Just enough of everything to not take away from the girl of the hour! I usually find that extravagant set-ups end up taking the attention away from the child that’s in the portrait.  These two are way too much fun! I’ve photographed their maternity portraits, Naomi’s newborn portraits and Naomi’s first birthday and Monica and Holden never disappoint! I’m also pretty sure that I’ve been handed a bevy every time I’ve walked into their home. #BonusPoints After getting messy with the cake, a little clean up was required. (Mostly for mom and dad, since Naomi was probably the cleanest baby post-cake smash that I have ever seen.)

Spring Mini Session

I’m going to take a moment here to thank all of the families that came out to my mini sessions and to the families coming to my “rain date” day! It is truly your support that allows me to do what I love every day, and I whole heartedly thank you. It makes me so happy to provide you with photographs that you will cherish for a lifetime.

Now scroll down and look as some adorable faces!

Nora’s got her grumpy, contemplating life face. Charlie is comforting his little brother. Ahhh, so sweet.  I love that Mom loves these images as much as I do because “It’s just us!” THESE are the real moments, not the pose ones, these are the ones you’ll want to remember.liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_child_family_photographer07liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_child_family_photographer09 liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_child_family_photographer10 liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_child_family_photographer11 I love those lashes! liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_child_family_photographer12 liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_child_family_photographer13 At the end of the session, this little one cuddled into Dad and it was the sweetest moment, I had to capture a portrait. liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_child_family_photographer14
