Angelo & Zeina | Marking 3 Years Married!! {Hamilton Family Photography}

Zeina contacted me at the begining of December to talk about the idea of a surprise photo session for her husband for them to share together on their 3rd wedding anniversary.  Zeina was looking for something laid back and fun, and outdoors in the snow! I love studio work, but outdoors is my favourite, with so much variety and the challenge of working with the elements (like freezing cold temperatures lol).  Zeina suggested going to Unionville, which is a quaint little area with a lovely park and some neat buildings.  Since it was a holiday, it wasn’t that busy, although it was a little cold. We managed to photograph for about an hour before poor Zeina lost all feeling in her fingers.  Regardless of the cold, it was a blast! I really enjoyed this session!  Here are some of my favourites:

It was so nice of the ducks to show up for the photo session….I love when I call in things like this, and it works out LOL

Most of the businesses in the area were closed, so that gave us the chance to use their surrounding areas…I carry light, so I’m able to run fast…just in case 😉

Most of the time, when I say, “try to knock so-and-so off your back”, the significant others don’t take me QUITE so literally! I think this was Angelo’s favourite part…and he sure did get Zeina off!  There were lots of laughs throughout the whole session, they are such a fun couple!

There was this cool little park area beside a huge pavillion. There were some really neat trees there, but also this random sphere with some other statues….oh and a mini wheat field 🙂  I thought it would be neat to use the reflection on the sphere to take a few photos!

Thank you, you two, for being adventerous in the cold with me! I had a great time and hope you love your images.  The cold really allowed for us to share a nice hot beverage after and sit and chat, which was a nice treat, as well! Thanks again 🙂

Little Aidan – 6 Months Old! {Kitchener Child Photographer}

After I posted a sneak peek of these photos on Facebook, I had a Facebook friend message to tell me she’s pretty sure I have the best job ever! And, I must say, I have to agree with her. How can you go wrong photographing a little guy this adorably cute?? Aidan is getting so big – and I cannot believe he’s 6 months.  Just over 5 months ago he was in here getting newborn photos done, which he slept through. Then, he was in here at 3 months to get his next set of photos done (he’s a Baby’s First Year baby!!), which he slept through lol. So, I was lucky enough to get him wide-eyed and all smiles for this session! He was a superstar, let us change him and dress him up, and kept smiling the entire time. I’m a little sad, however, that I won’t get to see him again for another 6 months until he turns 1….but he will be back for a cake smash, so I can smile about what is to come! Here are a few of my favourites from our session:

My heart melts a little each time I look at his face in this photo!

He 100% dislikes being on his belly, but we managed to get some smiles as he hung out in this monkey hat!

Every monkey needs a little friend to monkey around with lol 🙂

Oooooh….so sweet!

I always love when the parents get in some photos with their little ones. It doesn’t have to be a lot of pictures, just a few to have! Baby will love them when they’re all grown up!

He is such a happy camper here!

Aidan had this awesome outfit that I thought would look amazing as a Valentine’s Day card!! Valentine’s specials are on now, and this is the type of card that is included in the package!

family guy full episodes - It is amazing that this project is being shared online. I visited the museum for the first time last May, a wish I’d had for a long time- it was fantastic

frigidaire parts - Fantastic article as always, I am seriously considering something along the lines of an affiliate section on my own site… so very timely post.

gmail account - Awesome post Jeff! You guys are doing awesome work!

Ron Vancoillie - Category A 0 to 6 months Gemma and Ava
Category B 6 months to 1 year Addy and Julianna
Category C 1 to 3 years Isabelle and Deklan
Category C 3+ years Mia and Natalie

study abroad scholarships - Terrific work! This is the type of information that should be shared around the web. Shame on the search engines for not positioning this post higher!

x-ray technician - Thanks for an idea, you sparked at thought from a angle I hadn’t given thoguht to yet. Now lets see if I can do something with it.

mili - You should sign him up for modelling, he is toooooooooooo adorable!!!

Annya - Man this kid is CUTE!

Angie & Hal | Expecting! {Cambridge Maternity Photographer}

Angie & Hal came into the studio just before Christmas for some maternity and family portraits with their lovely daughter! I had a blast getting to capture this family and Angie’s belly.  Their 3 year old daughter was an absolute doll and completely worked the camera!  I cannot wait to meet the baby when he or she arrives very soon. Here are a few of my favourites from our time together:

I always love when older siblings are excited for the upcoming birth of their baby brother or sister! It’s so fun to see how they cherish mom’s belly and know that the baby is there and can feel their love already.

Angie was glowing during our time together!

Hugs for dad!

A photo session just isn’t the same without some ballet gear and tutus! This little one was so excited to have the chance to get some solo shots done in her dance outfits. She picked out her favourite tutu from my “tutu tree” and danced around the studio!  It was a fun way to end the session, and I think the photos are just adorable!

 

Thanks again to the 3 (actually…4) of you for coming into the studio! It was great to meet you and I cannot wait to see you again (with baby) later this month.

3 Ladies {Brantford Family Photographer}

Throughout the holidays, I had a really nice break.  I was off for 2 weeks from teaching, and I got to spend the majority of my time with my family and loved ones.  I had many visits with friends and I had more family suppers than my poor belly was ready for!  However, I also got to photograph a few sessions, and as much as I love vacation, I can never turn down the chance to photograph great people!! This family contacted me looking for photos in order to capture images altogether before they had to go their separate ways.  I welcomed a mother, a daughter and a sister/aunt into my studio to capture these 3 ladies as they celebrated their time together and had some fun infront of the camera.  Living in separate provinces, mother & daughter do not get to see each other nearly enough, so I was lucky enough to capture some moments for them to remember their holiday together.  I’m so glad we could book you in before your plane took off, and I hope you had some fun together and love your images! Here are a few of my favourites from our diva shoot 🙂

Mother & daughter don’t get to see each other often enough – it was fun capturing some of their time together!

We did some solo head shots since everyone was all fixed up and ready for a photoshoot! This is always one of my favourite parts, since those on the sidelines always try as hard as they can to make the subject up for photos laugh and do silly things!

We captured a look that mom has seen many times throughout her daughter’s lifetime lol….I’m sure my mom has seen this look from me quite a few times as well!

Thank you, ladies, for taking some of the time you shared together to come in for this session. It always hits a soft spot with me when families get their photos done, even when the children are all grown up and they have a life of their own.  I hope you love the photos, and that they help you hold on to some memories of your time together!
