Baby Avery | I Looooove Baby Rolls!!! {Kitchener / Waterloo Newborn Photographer}

 What is my favourite part about newborn photography?  There are MANY things I love about photographing babies…and I completely, totally understand why there are some photographers who focus solely on and specialize only in newborn photography. I get it. They smell delicious. Their skin is soooo soft. You get to spend hours in a warm room with white noise or soft music going. You have the chance to snuggle babies for a living! Yes people, it’s amazing. You do sometimes get peed on, pooped on, spit up on, etc., but hey, it’s part of the territory and the outcome far outweighs the danger of all that!

Even with all of that goodness, my favourite things about newborn photography are kissy lips and baby rolls…and this little girl had BOTH! I loooove me some baby rolls. Seriously. No joke. I think little back rolls on a baby are the cutest thing of life. And, when they fall asleep and their mouth gets all kissy lipped….ergh. My ovaries skip a beat and it totally gives me baby fever lol!  I had the opportunity to snuggle this little girl not too long ago. She is so beautiful. I’ve known her mama for a little while…in fact, Avery and Little Miss Cassandra I just posted about, are cousins! They were born 4 days apart (although Cassandra was technically due after Avery, her mama went a few days early and Miss Avery just did NOT want to leave that cozy spot she was being kept in and arrived quite a bit past her due date). It was so neat having these two girls in our studios so close together. This family was very blessed with 2 gorgeous girls (and they actually have a 3rd little girl in there too, she’s 18months now). It’s so amazing to see. Here are a few of my favourites from our session with Avery…or little miss Kissy Lips / Baby Rolls as I shall call her 😉

Little Miss Avery was a pretty good sleeper…as long as mama kept her well-fed, we were good to go! I love that we got a great variety of images!

The many facial expression of Avery….she probably even rolled her eyes at me in there!  She has the best expressions – including a stone cold stare glare that I got a few times…but when they’re followed by a huge adorable yawn and a bit smile…melt my heart!!

Baby rolls and kissy lips…right here. The whole package. Oh, and not to mention a cute little baby bum!

Baby Cassandra | One Sleepy Girl! {Brantford Baby Photography}

Baby Cassandra is one of many girls we have had in the studio lately!  2013 seems to be shaping up into the year of girl…which makes sense since last year seemed to be the year of the boy! I was so excited to have this sweet cutie pie in here.  I have had the chance to photograph her family’s photos before, starting with a family session, then her mom & dad’s wedding in 2011 and now BABY! I love getting to be able to capture the progession!

Cassandra came in sound asleep and stayed that way the entire session. She showed me her peepers once and didn’t even need a top up before starting or anything. She was ZONKED the whole time. It’s a first for us here….usually baby needs a meal or snack at some point.

I love capturing more natural poses as well as posed photos. The above photo was almost all baby. She just snuggled right in all comfy like that. A slight adjustment of her hand by her head and that was it. So cozy!

I love her little sweet squishy face. I could have just eaten her up during our session! Cassandra is such a doll – thanks to mom for bringing her in for a lovely session!

Gina Heaton - Kelly, I just wanted to let you know the pictures that you took of our babies Cassandra and Avery are so beautiful, we absolutley love them! As always you did a great job, you should be proud of your awesome work! Thanks again Gina Heaton

Mommy (or Grandma) & Me Sessions | {Cambridge Family Photography}

Early May can be such a beautiful time of year! The sun begins to shine, the snow is (usually) a distant memory, and spring is in the air! My favourite setting is around the trees during blossom season and an apple orchard plays the perfect location for this stunning backdrop. Presenting Mommy (and Grandma) & Me Sessions.

These sessions will take place at a lovely orchard located in St. George. Orchard Home Farm has been backdrop to some of my previous sessions, but in discussion with the owners, we all agree that early May is the most beautiful time of the year there!  I have been thinking about this for quite some time, and I’m happy to offer these sessions.

My goal is to capture those real smiles, hugs, tickels and squishes…in short, the true and genuine love between a mother & her child / children. Whether you have one, three or ten children, they are all precious in their own way and photos of you taken together are often few and far between. Update your photos of you and your little ones (even if they are bigger than you!) with this Limited Edition special.

Baby Easton | One handsome little man! {Kitchener newborn photography}

I love sweet little babies! I adore getting to cuddle and snuggle little ones who come into the studio! We pump up the heat, turn on the white noise and snuggle until they sleep. This little guy is an “elder” in the world of newborns, at the ripe ‘ol age of 3 weeks. He did such an amazing job, and we got him to sleep deeply so we could capture some photos of him and him with mama & dad. Here are a few of my favourites from our time togehter:

I was out and about the morning before this session and stumbled across this neat bowl…it’s a little buried under some layers of blanket, but it’s a big hunk of tree and it’s super neat!! Loved that I got to use it right away!

I met this little guy’s mama a few years back when I was shopping for my wedding dress…she was the amazing sales lady who helped me pick out my perfect dress. We stayed in touch via Facebook since then and after she had Easton, I was thrilled to have them into the studio!!

As a photographer, I truly love having the opportunity to capture family photos. There is always so much love when a new baby is added to the family.
