Beautiful Mama-To-Be { Studio Maternity Photography, Paris ON Photographer }

Mama-To-Be | Studio Maternity Photography
Paris, ON Maternity Photographer

When this beautiful mama asked me to take some photos of her to capture her sweet little bump, I was more than excited! Normally I would recommend heading outside but since maternity sessions are rather time sensitive there are times when outdoors just doesn’t work.  We have had nothing but cold and snow up here lately so outdoors was not an option.  The studio can be a wonderful place for a maternity session. With some creativity we can make my little space work perfectly. This is a great example of having a couple of different sets, using outfit choices and changes and how lighting can add a ton of versatility to a session.  Plus, studio maternity photography versus outdoor photography means we have the ability to show a little more belly and capture mama in her beautiful form.

Here are a few of my favourite images from this gorgeous mama’s session.  This session gave me my studio maternity photography groove back since it has been awhile since I had one.  So, if you are expecting and want to capture your bump and it’s sub-zero temperatures outside, have no fear as we have a very fun and creative way to capture your lovely self!

This mama looked absolutely stunning in our fun dress from Myrtle & Moss Props – I love this colour and style on her!

Since some of these images are for her significant other, I suggested to bring one of his shirts for a cute and sexy photo opt.

I can’t even deal with how lovely this mama is. She rocked all our set ups and all of the outfits.  Maternity studio photography sessions can include photographs like those seen here, showing the belly or we can capture just as much beauty with mama wearing dresses, pants, etc. The choice is wholly yours and I am happy to capture maternity sessions in all ways!

Paris, ON studio maternity photographerMama wanted to create a bed set up for something soft.  My studio space isn’t large enough for a real bed but we can make one up pretty easily and have it looking beautiful.  I also love this fun choice of “headboard” backdrop with the flowers – it was one of my favourites for Littles and now one of my favourites for this set up!
This backdrop is from Roses & Ruffles

I love this sweater choice.
I encourage maternity mamas to bring a few outfit selections and we can go through her wardrobe. We mix it up with my dresses and outfits and have fun with it all.  This is such a simple yet sexy and soft combination to perfectly capture this mama.

Baby Isla | Newborn Session { Hamilton, ON Newborn Photographer }

Baby Isla’s Newborn Session | Hamilton Ontario Newborn Photographer

This sweet girl is the baby of an old friend so I was thrilled to take her photos when mama asked me to! It was wonderful having her and her parents visit me in the studio.  It is always great to catch up with friends and meet new ones. Newborn sessions allow for some quiet chatting time. I love how they are a little slower (and they do take a little longer than a session with older children) but it gives us all time to chat with one another.  Newborn photography gives me the chance to take time and pose baby with care. It gives the adults a chance to relax and in the winter months the nice warm room feels like a tiny vacation away from the bitter cold outside.

Here are a few of my favourite images from our newborn session together { Hamilton Ontario Newborn Photographer }:

Dad may be one of the happiest and proudest dad’s I’ve ever had in. I think Isla’s smile & his smile match perfectly.

These family photos are so sweet. I try to keep it simple for family images because it isn’t about posing baby in all kinds of crazy ways but is about capturing the love and emotion radiating through the family members.  New babies bring so much happiness and I get to capture that.

I adore her sweet little folded hands here. So sweet in her slumber <3

I love that mama wanted green, blue and grey for her baby girl.  We captured her matching mama in some lovely pink for the family portion but mama definitely wanted to stick with more earthy tones and mom’s favourite colour is green (including this gorgeous blue/sea foam colour).

She had the sweetest smiles on this day. Most sessions I don’t get one smile but sweet Isla gave me quite a few as we went along.

So peaceful and beautiful.

Extended Family Photo Session | { Kitchener, ON Photographer }

Extended Family Photo Session | { Kitchener, ON Photographer }

Extended family photo sessions are not easy to plan. It takes work getting schedules together and working around work, extra curricular and sport activities. However, when they come together they are so rewarding! I love capturing the generations altogether. This family doesn’t have cousins included (dad is an only child so this is the extension of the family) but for larger families getting images of the cousins together with the grandparents in there, etc. makes for a lovely and fun session.

How do they work? Extended family photo sessions usually work like a few mini family sessions all rolled into one. We start with one family “unit” then take some images of them together. The 2nd family “unit” shows up and we take their images…and so on. Then, we end with photos of all the cousins, children with grandparents, siblings (adult and children), and partners together. I work fast and we get through it all in a quite organized fashion.

Here are some of my favourites from our (small) but lovely apple orchard Extended Family Photo Session:

These are two of the proudest Grandparents I’ve ever seen <3

We had such a gorgeous afternoon at the Orchard! This is one of my favourite places to photograph because of the amazing setting, light and the wonderful family who owns the place!

If you are interested in booking your Extended Family Photo Session do not hesitate to contact me with any questions about our special package options for large family sizes. We schedule limited full family sessions each month to ensure quality turn around time on images.  If you have a location in mind, we will travel throughout South Western Ontario and can even photograph on your own family property. If you don’t have a location in mind, we know of some beautiful spots that make for a great photo opt.

Outdoor Family Photography | Paris, ON Family Photographer

Outdoor Family Photography | Adorable Family { Paris, ON Family Photographer }

I had the pleasure of photographing this sweet baby girl just after she was born.  Her birthday falls right around Christmas so when it came to celebrating her first birthday we decided to head outdoors and braved the cooler temperatures in November. I love outdoor family photography so I always encourage families to brave the cold so we can capture more laid back and fun images of them altogether.  Mama wanted the images for her birthday invitations which is why we held it early. We captured some adorable images of her alone with some balloons and fun props mama brought. The rocking chair was a gift from her auntie and I thought it was so amazing to have it as part of her session.  I love personal touches that families bring in for their sessions.

Here are some of my favourites images from our slightly chilly but super adorable outdoor family photography session:

Sweet baby Adrianna has the cutest cheeks on her! She was a little chilly so the smiles were tough to come by but when you look this adorable, smiles don’t matter.

I always love this type of image. It’s sweet to capture the child / children alone yet still showing the connection to their family members.  My goal is to capture the natural connection between family members.

Maternity and Newborn Photography | { Kitchener, ON Photographer }

Maternity and Newborn Photography | Kitchener, ON Photographer

This beautiful mama-to-be got in touch with me asking about maternity and newborn photography.  I definitely do both and love taking outdoor maternity photos so much!! She was due in just over a couple of weeks so we hurried to book her outdoor photos in the gorgeous November light to take these stunning images. Mama provided her own outfits for this maternity session, but I also have gowns and outfits that can be used. She brought her own amazing tops and wraps and they looked beautiful on her!
Mama braved the cooler weather but it was well worth it for these lovely images.  When it came to the photo of her in the flower scarf I asked if she was okay going into the thicker grass area and her response was, “I grew up in the bush!” I love that she was brave and up for anything <3

Baby girl was born only a week after we took the photos above. She came a tad bit earlier than expected and was just a little peanut. Mama loves all of the wraps and wanted her good and snuggly throughout the photos. I am so happy to provide a gallery full of images in different wraps and poses.  Mama enjoyed our *ahem* extensive newborn headband collection.  I have a little buying problem when it comes to headbands and she had fun “shopping” in our collection.
I did ask mom if she was up for one hat because I thought purple looks just so perfect on this sweet girl.  I’m so glad I did because it does look quite lovely.

I adore following a mama’s journey from pre-pregnancy maternity photos to the newborn session. It’s so fun to capture baby before and after birth.

Headbands provided by Myrtle & Moss Props, & Signature Studio Props

We offer both in-studio and outdoor maternity sessions all year long. Our “Regular” and “Full” newborn sessions include a complimentary maternity mini session with 4 digital images included. Maternity sessions are best photographed from about 32-36 weeks to allow for a great size belly but while mama is still somewhat comfortable.  Newborn sessions are best photographed in the first 2 weeks of life, when possible. Booking your newborn session ahead of time allows for the best chance of securing an early session spot. If you have an “older” newborn – 2 weeks or above – newborn photos are not out of the question and can still be done! Do not hesitate to contact me with any questions at all.

Along with maternity and newborn photography, we also specialize in older baby sessions, birthday and cake smash sessions, sibling and family photography. To schedule your session please use the “CONTACT” link above or send an email to kellytemplephotography@live.ca or call/text 519-717-7002
