Baby ‘A’ Turns 1 | Smash Cake Celebrations!

Let me just start this blog post with a great big SIGH!  Posting this session just reminds me how quickly a year can go by.  This family and this little guy are so awesome! Every time they come in for a session we laugh and laugh. The whole thing started with his mamma, who answered an ad I had looking for maternity models to practice some new ideas I had for pregnancy sessions.  From there, she brought her beautiful baby boy back in for newborn photos, and what’s even better is she signed him up for our Baby’s First Year program! As mentioned over and over, this is my FAVOURITE session package (along with the Family Plan!!!) because I get to see families come in and watch their baby grow up over the year.  Little ‘A’ has gotten so big. He has made us laugh a lot as I’ve captured him sleeping…sleeping some more, smiling, laughing and now smashing cake (well…more poking the poor monkey’s eyes lol).  He is such a beautiful child and I adore this family (and Lyndsay – Aidan’s auntie…and you, too, Amanda lol).  You’re all so much fun and I truly hope this is not our last session together.  I cannot wait to see him grow even more and to share more laughs and to capture more moments! Here are a few of my favourites from our session together, starting with a recap of Baby ‘A’ when he was just brand new…he’s my famous “baseball” baby – the original of this pose and type of shot…in fact, I sought out and purchased this glove knowing he was coming in and knowing dad is a huge baseball fan!

He started out so tiny. He’s gotten bigger but has remaind just a precious!

His monkey is his best friend in the whole world…he love that fuzzy thing lol

Big smiles showing off those teeth!

Big laughs…he was squealing with glee here!

I always love to capture a photo with baby and parents (in this case mamma, dad had to work!)

A monkey cake for a little monkey!  Thanks so much for a wonderful year. I look forward to seeing you in the future 🙂

Family Fun | Princess Anne Park, Brantford, ON

Baby J turned 1 back in April. When mom contacted me to take his photos when the weather got nice, I was so excited!  I had the great honour of taking this family’s maternity photos and also newborn photos of Baby J just over a year ago, and it means so much to me when clients return! I couldn’t believe how big and handsome this little one has gotten. He was running around, screaming and having a blast at the park today.  Here’s a peek of some of my favourites from the day:

Love the big smiles!!

Gotta love the “I just learned to run” arms…they make me giggle seeing arms all over and smiles on the faces of little ones!

Such a lovely family!

This Willow tree is one of my favourites!

Thanks for a wonderful session! Can’t wait to see you 3 again in the future 🙂

Baby ‘N’ | 8 days old!

 Baby ‘N’ is a mere 8 days old. He still has the new baby smell and is simply adorable.  I had the chance to take his mamma’s maternity photos about a month ago…it’s always fun getting to meet them afterwards!  This family is special to us.  Amy (mamma) is my husband’s step-sister. I hadn’t had the chance to meet Amy and her family until last year when she saw my photos on Facebook and asked Jamie to have me come take photos of her girls.  We had a fun outdoor session, but most importantly had the chance to get to know each other a little! From there, we’ve staying in touch with Amy and her family.  When Amy told me she was pregnant we started talking maternity photos, and when she came in for her maternity photos, I asked her to bring baby in for some photos.  With such a fun and loving family, I was super excited when she said yes!!  Two proud big-sisters were so wonderful during this session….just so much love for their little brother!  Here are some of my favourites from our time together:

 These girls just adore this little guy…so sweet!

 The hair on his head is just so beautiful! I love how soft babies look and feel!

 Such a beautiful family! Love love love <3

 A newborn session just isn’t the same without some stylish hats and props.

 Dad is a big baseball fan….we waited patiently for this photo and I think patience paid off – I love this image and I know this little guy will grow up to be a baseball player, so this photo just captures his start to the love of the game 🙂

Thanks so much for coming all the way in for this session. You family is absolutely precious and we cannot wait to see you all again!!

Little ‘V’ and her “diva” photoshoot | 4 years old

The other day I had this adorable little girl into the studio! She is full of energy and smiles and we had a great time during our session! Little ‘V’ is 4 and a half and is smart as a whip! She had a blast trying on the various props in the studio – we dressed her up in various head bands, hair clips, tutus and wings!  We laughed the whole time. She has a lovely smile that melts the heart a little!  Plus, she’s going to be a big sister very soon! She will have a little brother here within a month or so and she is so proud already.  It was great to get some photos of her by herself before the arrival of her new sibling.  I don’t get a lot of children this age into the studio on their own, so it was a lot of fun to have a session all about her where she could dance around and enjoy herself!! Here are some of my favourites from our session together:




Simply adorable!  Hope to see you again when your little brother arrives!

B-man {8 months old} | Kinsmen Valleyview Park, Oshawa

Sigh. I heart outdoor sessions. The sunny and hot weather we’ve been getting has allowed for the first outdoor session of the season.  Baby B is 8 months old and super cute. He’s part of my Baby’s First Year program, so you may recognize him! How could you forget those cheeks??  He’s getting so big now, and I love how each time I photograph a new session in the program, the babies are doing something else new. This little guy was all about his tongue in these photos. He’s always sticking it out and playing with his little teeth.  He’s so adorable and has 2 wonderful and loving parents.  I’m actually photographing their engagement photos and wedding photos this summer.  I’m super excited and will definitely be sharing those photos when they’re taken, as well! Here’s a peek of some of my favourites from B-man’s 3rd session:






I’m so glad we had such a beautiful day!  See you again this summer 🙂
