Newborn Photography | Baby Jack 15 days new { Brantford Baby Photographer }

As with every fall, the outdoor sessions begin to pick up and the studio sessions take a back seat.  It was a breath of fresh air (or 30 degree air, technically speaking) to get back in the studio for a newborn photography session.  Baby Jack is downright adorable, and his newborn photos turned out so well! For this newborn photography mini session, mom requested neutrals with a touch of blue. Together, we decided on grey, cream & blue for Jack’s colours. Newborn photography involves a lot of planning and I put a lot of effort into getting set ups ready and making sure everything flows and goes together nicely. My goal with newborn photography or with any session, is that it will compliment your home living space as well as your personal style and my own photographic style.

Here are a few of my favourite images from Jack’s newborn photography mini session:

I got about 20 of these big ol yawns before he settled down and gave into the warmth and the white noise. Some babies fight me on sleep…but I always win…

Fall Family Photography | The ‘D’ Family { Burlington Outdoor Family Photography }

Fall Family Photography is my utmost favourite! I love this time of year. I love the smell of the crisp air. I love sweater weather. I love the colours; coolness and warmth all at the same time.  Autumn is just an amazing time of year. September to November always prove busy for outdoor fall family photographers and that is just fine by me! Being outside, running around with the children and getting the opportunity to work with some of the best families around!  My clients and I always seem to have fun.  The weather is sometimes unpredictable but in an outdoor space that provides a stunning backdrop and that gives the kids a ton of space to run, explore and even sometimes get a little lost (they always come back!), you just cannot beat fall family photos.

This fall family photo session was a blast.  I think I smiled the entire time, and there were a ton of laughs. I left feeling like I had just finished photographing good friends.  Here are a few of my favoutites from The D Family’s outdoor fall family photography session:

I hear it from mom’s all the time: “I’m the one taking the photos, I’m never in any”…and that was just the case for this mama. She was thrilled to actually be part of the photo session and is happy to have images to display and show her boys that include her in them as well.

Dad managed to get some big smiles and laughs out of his boys!

Outdoor_Family_SessionOutdoor_Family_SessionOutdoor_Family_SessionOutdoor_Family_SessionThese three boys are so darn handsome!! They did an amazing job during this session.

Once in awhile, as a photographer, there is an image that I capture and right away know I’m going to love it. As soon as I clicked the shutter, I knew this would be one of my favourites. I am not quite sure why, but this moment of sheer joy this boy had is just amazing. This photo makes my heart happy.

One of my favourite ages is when kids start losing all of their teeth. The toothy smiles are amazing.

Another one of my personal favourites. His smoosh face is just adorable.

Mama has boys that are rough and tough and love to run around (they were doing laps around the orchard between photos), but they are still so sweet and loved being with each other. These smiles are 100% genuine – I just had to ask them to snuggle in close and this is what I got!

LITERALLY….running laps between images!!
The lighting and the clouds was amazing. It had been raining about 45 minutes before our session started. Mom & I went back and forth all day debating on the time, should we go through with the session, etc., and I’m so glad we agreed to hold the session even with the threat of rain because the lighting was divine.

And this one!  I can’t get enough of these adorable boys!

Outdoor_Family_SessionOutdoor_Family_Session

More often than not, when I ask mom & dad if they would like a photo of just the two of them they respond with, “we haven’t had a photo of just us taken since our wedding”. I love ending with a parent photo. The funniest part is, and it NEVER fails, no matter how “done” the kids are and how much they don’t want any more photos, when they see mom & dad posing for a photo they always run in and want to be part of it!

Thank you, D Family, for the amazingly fun fall family photography session. I’m glad the weather was on our side and I love how it all turned out.

Baby Everly | Baby Program Milestone { Kitchener Baby Photography }

It’s hard to believe this sweet girl is over 4 months old already! This is session #2 for Everly as part of her Baby Program. Our Baby’s First Year Program includes 4 sessions: newborn, 4 month, 8 month and a 1 year + cake smash birthday session!  The package includes digital files at each milestone session and a sweet little coffee table album full of the family’s favourite images from throughout the year. I love when families sign up for this package – it is SO fun to see the baby (and older siblings) grow and change so much throughout the year!

4_month_baby_photography_0074_month_baby_photography_0064_month_baby_photography_005

We took the same set up of big brother and baby sister at her newborn session. I love revisiting a similar photo at each session to really see the growth in the baby or children involved. It will be wonderful to look back and see how much they have changed! I envision them as a series on a wall in a collage frame with four images hanging altogether 🙂

4_month_baby_photography_004

Ack! Look at those cheekers!!

4_month_baby_photography_003

Mom wanted to mix up her session with some indoor and outdoor photos to capture the outdoor photo opportunity! Since I love photographing outdoors, I was more than happy to mix it up a little bit for her 4 month session.

4_month_baby_photography_0024_month_baby_photography_001

I can’t wait to share how much she grows at her next milestone session!

Apple Orchard Family Sessions { Fall Family Photography, Hamilton, ON }

This warm fall weather we have been having has made for some fantastic photography!  Outdoor fall family photography sessions are my FAVOURITE! Like, I love them the most the most. This fall, although the rain has been a little bit of a pain thus far with some rainy days in the forecast, overall it has really been warm and sunny for the most part. For our apple orchard mini sessions in St. George last weekend, we had the most amazing weather!

This mama isn’t on Facebook, so I wanted to share her sneak peek on my blog.
When these gorgeous children walked up to me that evening, I died a little inside. How adorable are they? Seriously?!?!?!? And well-behaved!! AND they LIKE EACH OTHER.
It was a pleasure to photograph them FINALLY after many many months (to put it mildly) of trying to find a date and having the weather on our side!
