Baby ‘M’ | 3 Weeks Old! {Kitchener Newborn Photography}

Mom & Dad of this little guy were just in a little while ago for some maternity photos!  I got to capture him as belly, and now as baby!! It’s always fun to see baby back for some newborn photos after a maternity session.  Mom & Dad of this little gaffer are friends of ours, so I was happy to have the chance to have them back in for photos!  Baby M was a little reluctant to sleep at first, so we heated him up with 2 space heaters and got him sleeping peacefully! We ended up getting some great shots of him by himself looking seriously adorable in some cute hats, and also some lovely photos of the whole family!  I hope to see this little one again soon 🙂

I love big yawns and big sneezes! Baby M was sneezing in the photo on the right – I love it!

One of the cutest things in the world for me, is when babies fall asleep and their faces SQUISH up. So sweet – I love the photo of Baby M in the owl hat…SQUIIIISH!

I always love when mom & dad get in a family photo when baby is still small – these photos are so precious of the whole, new family!!

The yawning photo is probably my favourite family picture! To me, family photos aren’t about being perfect, but about capturing the personality and little moments, and I love this moment!

Carrie - These are lovely! Nice throw you have there! I wonder where you go it 😉

Baby ‘A’ | 7-weeks old and SO much hair!! {Hamilton Baby Photography}

Baby ‘A’ and her big sister ‘H’, are the cousins of a little one I had the chance to photograph just a couple of months back!! When grandma & daughter came to pick up their photos from session number 1, they were rushing over to the hospital to visit their new grandbaby and niece.  I was thrilled when grandma got in touch with me again to photograph her newest grandchild, Baby A and her Older Sister H!!   It is always fun to make family connections and getting to see families come by again!  It’s such a huge compliment when people come back in for more photos, and I thank you for bringing these littles ones in! The session was so much fun! Baby A came in sleeping, woke up part way through and cooperated the whole time. As for Big Sister H, she is only 19-months and did such an amazing job posing with her sister! I did have a dream of both sisters in matching owl hats, but what 19-month old likes to wear hats (LOL) ?!?!   They both did such an amazing job, and this was almost a record time for a newborn session! Here are a few of my favourites from the day:

She’s so proud to be a big sister!!

Baby A has SOOO much hair! She not only has a lot of hair, but it is so wild and outta control – I love it!!  I went to look up lyrics from the musical Hair, but they just didn’t suit a newborn blog. However, that was the FIRST song that popped into my head as I was editing these photos lol.

I love this little diaper cover with all the ruffles!!

She was just hanging out with mom in these photos! I cannot get over how much hair she has – it’s wild!

Thank you again for coming in for your photos. I hope you love the images we captured!!

Alana - LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!
I have such cute nieces! 🙂

Holiday Toy-Drive & Mini-Sessions!! {Brantford Children Photography}

Ok, so I know Halloween just ended, but now the Holiday Season is upon us. It is as though the world knows…the weather has cooled down and they’re even calling for flurries later this week.  And although many people do not love the cold and snow (I definitely cursed my car for having to scrape it off this morning!!), I do love this time of year for many other reasons. I love how the Holiday’s bring out so much good in people – there is a buzz around everywhere with visiting, baking, shopping and best of all, giving!   However, not every child has access to gifts, and some children will even have to spend their holidays in the hospital. So, I have decided to replace the Mini-session fee of $25 that I would normally charge, to the donation of a new, unwrapped toy. All toys will be donated to the Sick Kids Hostpital Annual Toy Drive, so that children in the hospital can wake up to a wonderful gift on Christmas Day!!

There are more details below, but if you have any questions please do not hesitate to email me kellytemplephotography@live.ca or call me at 519-994-2401 . Also, book fast since space is limited, and get your holiday / festive photos taken and give back!!

Baby ‘C’ | 13 Days Old! {Kitchener Newborn Photography}

I took maternity photos for Shaunda last month, and now her bundle of joy has arrived!! She welcomes into the world beautiful baby ‘C’ – her fourth baby and first girl! Her older brothers love her already, as we can see with her older brother A in these photos below. Her bigger brothers weren’t present for photos, but she is loved just the same!!   As it is getting close to the holidays, I thought I would have a little fun with some decorations and cute props I recently acquired for this holiday season!  Big brother A didn’t want to give my Christmas ball back at the end – he was pretty attached to it!  Mom & Dad now have an idea of what to get him for Christmas lol 🙂  Here are a few of my favourites from the session:

Big Brother A did such a fabulous job getting his photo taken – he listened so well and even sat “criss cross apple sauce” for me! What a great little subject 😀

Baby C was still small enough to fold up and pose. She barely fussed, and let us dress her up and move her around….I wish I could sleep like that!

Big Brother A gives Little sis some love in these photos!

Ahhh, I have had this basket for many moons and FINALLY got a baby small enough and far sleepy enough to be put into said basket! Above are some of my favourites from the basket sequence…although I may have gone a little click happy after I got her all settled in there…I was so excited everything went to plan!!

Some family time!

A little love from Mommy & Daddy here.

 

Thanks again for having me take photos of your belly and now your baby! I had a great time seeing you all again and meeting the little one. She’s beautiful, and I hope you love your images so far!

shaunda - i love the pics kelly!! you did an amazing job!! thanks for your patience too!!

Annya - Beautiful work Kelly! Love the Christmas props 🙂

Shannon & Adam | 9 Months Pregnant! {Burlington Pregnancy Photography}

Shannon & Adam are expecting their first baby and have asked me to capture their maternity photos and to come back and take photos of their little one when he or she arrives (it’s a surprise…but my bet is a girl!)  It’s always great to meet the couple before photographing baby, since we get nice and comfortable with each other and it makes it super easy, and so much fun, when baby arrives!  I always get excited to meet baby after a maternity session and love seeing the results of that beautiful baby bump! Maternity sessions are one of my favourite sessions, and I love just getting to hang out with mom & dad and feed off their excitement and anticipation for the little one to arrive. Here are some of my favourites from the session – I cannot wait to see you again in a few weeks and take photos of baby!!

As we went along in our session, we started using wraps and more dramatic lighting to light Shannon & her belly. I love to take a whole bunch of photos in various outfits to give mommy & daddy – to – be many to choose from.  I love using wraps for sessions, and I always encourage mommy’s to bring half a wardrobe so we can have fun with outfits!! I love seeing ladies wheeling up a suitcase and a belly when they come to my door (haha)!I love the thought of baby getting to see these photos when they grow up, and to see how special they were even before they officially arrived in this world! There is so much love in a maternity session!I tried something a little different with the white material wraps. I love how it looks all flowy! Mom looks absolutely stunning!! This last one is my personal favourite, althought I love them all!  I hope you love the images, you two (+ baby)!
