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!

Kitchener Maternity Photography {Outdoor Maternity Session}

Kitchener Maternity Photography | Maternity Photographer Brant, ON

I have a new found love for maternity photography! I have had some brave mamas who are willing to go outdoors for their maternity photography sessions and I am loving the results!  I don’t keep it secret that I LOOOOVE photographing outdoors. It’s my favourite. So, when gorgeous mamas mix with the great outdoors, I’m all smiles!  And when that mama happens to be a friend who is not only lovely herself but has a beautiful family to match, it’s even that much sweeter!

Here are some of my favourites from this outdoor maternity photography session:

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:

Aleena | Professional Head Shots { Kitchener, ON }

Professional Head Shots – Brant area, Tri-cities and surrounding area Head Shot Photographer

There are many reasons individuals require head shots to be taken. Professional Head Shots are a very important aspect of many people’s businesses and for people going through in acting, modeling, etc., require Professional Head Shots as well.  Aleena came to me for head shots for her acting portfolio.  She was auditioning for a big role and wanted some updated photos of her adorable self.  Regardless of age, there are many reasons to have Professional Head Shots taken.

My advice to people who are getting Professional Head Shots is to wear clothing and style their hair and make up in a way that is true to themselves, so they still look like them in the photos! Aleena and her mom found some great accessories for Aleena to wear and we captured a great array of images for Aleena to showcase some different looks and sides of her. Here are just a handful of my favourites that were taken during our Professional Head Shots session:

Baby G | Brant Newborn Photographer { Paris, ON Baby Photography }

Sweet Baby Gabriel – Brant Newborn Photographer

Honestly, all I can say about this baby is holy handsome! What a gorgeous little guy.  And, to top it off, he was so good to me! He came in for his mini session all sleepy and ready to be photographed. All was going perfectly. We had him wrapped up tightly and ready for “potato sack” pose. My assistant and I had him all settled in. I stopped to slightly reposition him and suddenly he vomited. And I mean, it was epic. Right into his sweet little hands (and into the hands of my assistant who caught the majority of it to save my rug and the wrap). Mom and dad felt so bad, but there is no need at all!  Things like that happen to us all the time. We laughed, cleaned him up and swaddled him in a new wrap. After that, he was ready to go.  We really never know what is going to happen during a newborn session and that is part of the reason I love being a newborn photographer!!

Here are some of my favourite images from Baby G’s session:
