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:

Nine Month Older Baby Session | { Kitchener Baby Photography }

I love photographing an older baby photo session!
This little girl is so darn adorable. If you are curious as to what a baby super-mini session looks like, this blog post outlines exactly what seven images from a baby session could be!
This session took about 30 minutes of photographing and we managed to get a few different props to use and ended up with some GORGEOUS images with a great variety.

Older baby sessions are one of my favourites to photograph. It is an amazing milestone where they sit (mostly) still and have lovely big smiles for the camera!  They are just so darn sweet at this age! Here is Miss V at nine months old looking so very lovely!


This amazing rug, wrap and headband by Luneberry Props.


This cute lamb hat & quilt from Pup & Frank Photography Props.


Oh this face! I just adored having the opportunity to photograph this session!

An older baby photography session are so sweet and special. If you are interested in having your older baby photographed please consider a super mini or mini session.  There are many prop and backdrop options available to choose from and our sessions are customized based on your preferences.

First Birthday Photos | Adalyn Turns ONE!!

I love first birthday photos. These sessions make me happy – all the smiles, the clapping, the crawling around all over. I chase babies, mom leaves sweating because she’s getting baby and putting them back into place for me (if I move, by the time I get back into my spot the baby is gone and I’ve missed it all so mama often has to run around like a crazy lady for me lol). First birthday photos are so fun. It’s a milestone that should be captured and remembered. This age is joyous and just like when they are brand spankin new, you never get the nose scrunch and the little teeth growing in smiles again.  This milestone is so fabulous so if your baby is coming up on their first birthday, be sure to capture this moment with first birthday photos that capture the innocence and this amazing moment in your child’s life!


I love how older babies love to sit on chairs. It’s like they feel like such big kids up there on the chair. I always get big smiles and hand claps when they are up there! Mom or dad stay so close and baby is never in danger of falling off because mom is less than an arms length away 🙂


She was so happy to be wearing these pearls. Adorable!


This one is my favourite. When the giggles get so big that the nose scrunches and the eyes close. It makes my heart so happy!


Here’s a fun game. Try taking your one year old baby and put them onto their back. See how long it takes them to flip over and crawl away. Yup. That is the amount of time that I had to capture this photo. It took a few tries, but with mama swinging baby for smiles then putting her down, and a quick trigger finger, we got this adorable image.


I always strive to get a “looking up” photo. It is just so sweet and innocent. There doesn’t have to be a smile, but those big eyes looking up at me say it all 🙂

If you are interested in booking your child’s first birthday photos with us, please use the contact form via this website or email or call 519-717-7002.  Sessions can take place in studio or outdoors.

Sweet Family Photo Session | The Arboretum

I used to live in Guelph. I went to school there and spent five amazing years in that awesome city.  All the time I spent on the University campus, I barely ever went to The Arboretum. I missed out on such a beautiful spot. I had gone through The Arboretum while running but I had never stopped to actually enjoy this amazing place. I went there for the first time with a family for a family photo session a few years ago and I loved it there! The surroundings are amazing. It is full of unique trees and plants (actually, fun fact….the Arboretum actually contains baby trees grown with seeds used from the Flowering Tulip Poplar tree growing in our backyard!!) and it has some beautiful little spots in it. For this outdoor family photo session we decided to go to the Arboretum to take in some of it’s beauty and uniqueness.

Here are a few of my favourites from our family photo session!
