Baby Milestone Photography | Six Month Photographer Kitchener, ON

Baby Milestone Photography – Kitchener Baby Photographer

Sometimes people will ask me what my favourite type of session to photograph is. My answer varies. To be honest, I just love newborns, babies and families so much it is impossible to split them apart and pick a downright favourite. However, older baby milestone sessions are quickly becoming a photo session that puts a smile on my face.  I think this is a stage that NEEDS to be captured. I love this age…when baby is sitting up, all full of smiles and bright eyes but they don’t move so quickly where every time you try to photograph them it’s just a blurry ball of motion.  Baby Milestone Photography is so darn precious.  Sessions are much shorter in length than a newborn but the images are so darn sweet. I love the personality that shines through in these babies. Milestone sessions aren’t about an exact AGE (they don’t have to take place right at six months or right at eight months) but more about the STAGE.  When your baby is able to sit up well, and is steady enough to look around and look up and to balance on small props without toppling over head first, they are ready.  Baby milestone photography is too precious and the images are too lovely to miss!

Here is little Miss Violet’s eight month baby milestone photography session.
We opted to go outdoors since the weather has been so nice and warm lately and to give them a little bit different of a feel:

Outdoor Family Photos | { Paris Family Photographer }!!

Outdoor Family Photos | Welcome Spring….we have missed you.

This weather. Thank. Goodness. Spring is HERE! Here. Yes it is finally here! I think I can finally state that spring is here for the staying and that our outdoor family photo sessions have begun! Outdoor family photos make my heart happy. I adore how families get to be themselves…they get to play and have fun in the outdoor setting.  My job is to capture the natural interactions of families. I like to give a little direction then capture the fun that follows.  The natural smiles, the real snuggles and love radiate through the images.

For Everly’s first birthday, her family opted to head to the great outdoors for a fun session! Everly is one of my “Baby’s First Year” babies this year. She has been coming to me since her newborn session and this makes the fourth and final session in her program. Along with the four sessions, the package includes an adorable little album with their favourites from the year. I cannot wait to get to design their album and see the year come together!

Here are my favourites from Everly’s Outdoor Family Photos:

There is so much love that exudes from this family. It makes my job quite easy and makes me beyond happy I get to capture these moments.

When we are able to go outside for outdoor family photos it gives the children and families a chance to run around and be themselves.  When they try to crawl or run away I can just chase them around and even in their mad fury of avoiding the camera and exploring the world I get to capture some seriously fun and adorable images in the process.

If you are interested in booking an outdoor family photo session this spring, summer, or fall sessions are booking now for dates in May through to November. Weekend dates are limited, so please book in advance if you require a weekend date. Sessions are held  from late-afternoon to as close to sunset as possible for the prettiest darn light available.  To inquire about your outdoor child / family / extended family session, please send an email to kellytemplephotography@live.ca or call 519-717-7002.  Be sure to join us on Facebook for all of our up to date images!

Birthday Photography | Cake Smash { Baby S turns ONE! }

Birthday Photography – Baby S’s Cake Smash Session

Birthday photography sessions are so much fun. I adore planning along with mom and dad figuring out all of the details to make the session just right! From the backdrop preferences, to the colours of the balloons and the design of the cake, no detail goes unplanned. Everything in a birthday photography session is detailed to make it JUST right for such a special occasion! Some families bring their own outfit (as Baby S’s did!) and some use one of the many outfits we have here. I work closely with (CANADIAN!! – when possible) vendors who custom make the most adorable little outfits. I also like to knit and have a little knit shop and make a lot of items that we use! So, regardless of colour and design preferences, first birthday photography sessions are completely customized and I always love seeing an idea from the parents come together in the final images!

Here are a few of my favourites from Baby S’s First Birthday Photography Session…a pink Winter Wonderland theme.

Ack, there is something about this image that just tugs at my heartstrings!

Mom loved the rustic wooden backdrop in white and this little wicker chair was perfect! Mom brought in her own ONE letters but these are definitely something I am going to be adding to my collection because they are adorable!

When babies can walk during a session there is never a dull moment. I adore her cheeky little grin in this image.

My cake designer is so wonderful. Shelby at Sugar & Spice Bakery in Paris, ON takes our ideas and brings them to life. I love how she strung the little snowflakes around the cake. So pretty!

When the cake eating was complete, Baby S was thrilled to play balloon toss…I actually LOVE the balloon images. Sometimes the most unplanned things turn out the absolute cutest!

Outdoor Maternity Session | {Brant Maternity Photographer}

Well, there is no doubt that I love to photograph outdoors. It’s my absolute favourite. I love the element of surprise…the light is never the same twice. The location can look different even if you photograph in the same spot 15 times!  Normally it is full family sessions that opt to go outdoors. But, lately we have been taking brave mamas outdoors with an outdoor maternity session.  Maternity photos are a wonderful way to capture your gorgeous belly and that glow that you only get while expecting.

This outdoor maternity session took place in a local field near my studio in Brant, ON.  It was cold and snowy but this mama her dad to be powered through and we managed to capture some lovely images for them to remember this time with.  Here are a few of my favourites from our outdoor maternity session:
