Baby’s First Year: Happy Birthday, Abigail! | Mississauga Baby Photographer

I seriously have THE best job!  Not only am I able to capture special memories and imagery for families, BUT sometimes I am let in on little secrets that turn out to be MASSIVE and EXCITING family announcements!  I was truly honoured to have had a part in helping to announce their special news.  When clients trust me to capture these special milestones in their lives… It really means so much!  It was such pleasure seeing little Abigail and her parents again, and I am beyond thrilled to be able to capture their new arrival later this spring!!!

New Arrival: Baby Reeyin | Cambridge Family Photographer

I had the pleasure of meeting Reeyin’s family this past summer when we captured him as just a bump in his mama’s belly.  In October, I was welcomed into his family’s beautiful home in Cambridge to capture some newborn and family portraits via an in-home lifestyle session.  Reeyin’s name means “Kingly” – and when his mama mentioned that to me, I knew I just had to bring along this special crown prop to include in one of the shots.  It turned out to be one of my favourites from the session.

Baby’s First Year: Happy Birthday, Sydney! | Guelph Baby Photographer

First Year Sessions are oh-so-much-fun!!  I love having the opportunity to photograph a little one’s first year milestone…especially so when I first had the opportunity to photograph the little one as a newborn!  I have had the pleasure of capturing Miss Sydney a few times over the course of the year, and although she has grown and changed each time, she has always been such a happy and sweet little girl!  Here are some favourites from her First Year Session this past Fall…

Expecting: Julia | Kitchener Pregnancy Photographer

Oh. My. Goodness!  I cannot believe it has been MONTHS since my last post (insert “monkey covering eyes” emojii here!).  It has been a very busy past few months though, and my January calendar is looking like it will be as well!  But I just love my job, and am so honoured each time I am asked to document a family’s memories. There will be several more posts to follow, as I have lots to share from my Fall sessions.

This beautiful maternity session took place at the end of August. We had a lovely warm summer evening, and mama-to-be was simply radiant!  Here are a few of my favourites from the session…Kitchener maternity photographer Guelph maternity photographer maternity session Guelph Guelph pregnancy photographer

Expecting: A baby boy is on the way!| Cambridge Maternity Photographer

I had so much fun with this family!  I’m not gonna lie — I was sweating by the end of our session after photographing two busy boys, but there was a lot of laughs and fun had during this recent maternity session. I really could share every single image from their gallery…I genuinely loved them all!  Thank you M family for choosing me to capture this special time in your family’s life as you prepare for your baby boy’s arrival. I’m so excited to meet him in the coming weeks!

New Arrival: Baby Madelyn|Kitchener Newborn Photographer

I love LOVE having the opportunity to meet an expectant couple for their maternity session, and then be able to see them again as a brand new family once baby arrives.  I cannot tell you what a privilege that is for me, to be a part of capturing these very precious milestones in my clients’ lives.  I met Julia & Craig at an outdoor location in Guelph this past June for their maternity session, and was thrilled to see them again at Baby Madelyn’s newborn session in July at my in-home studio.  Here are some favourites from our session together…Introducing Baby Madelyn, 7 days new:

New Arrival: Baby West | Guelph Newborn Photographer

I was delighted to hear that this awesome family was expecting their second child, another boy, earlier this summer!  Baby West was just as sweet and beautiful as could be, and although Big Brother Nate wasn’t interested in posing with his new sibling just yet, I know that in time they will likely be the best of friends!  Thank you L Family for allowing me the opportunity to capture you as a new family of four!  It is always a pleasure. <3

Happy Birthday, Christina! | Mississauga Baby Photographer

Cake Smash sessions are such a fun way to commemorate baby’s First Year milestone!  They are even more fun for me as a photographer when the Birthday Baby first visited me as a newborn. SO much growth and development happens in that first year!  It is so special for me to see the little one’s smiley faces and spunky personalities at the one-year mark. Miss Christina had a fabulous time smashing her cake, and enjoyed her clean-up bath equally as much!  Happy 1st Birthday, sweet girl!

Then and now….
