Ruby’s grandmother recently contacted me to book a Baby Session to mark Ruby’s 10-month milestone, and I am so glad that she did! Ruby was an absolute delight to photograph! She was soooo cooperative for her session, and she had plenty of beautiful smiles and expressions to share with us. During our consult, we discussed some items that Ruby’s family really wanted to use within the session. Ruby’s parents enjoy music and antiques and brought along some of their own amazing props to incorporate into a few of our set-ups. I know that her family was as thrilled with the final results as I was!
M & T – thank you so much for choosing me to capture your sweet girl! I enjoyed meeting all four of you!
The “Look at Me!” Baby Session is a great way to document your little one’s first year milestones. Contact me for more information, or to book your baby session today! email@example.com
Although I have had the pleasure of photographing little Lachlann in the studio at 6-months and again for his First Year milestone, this was the first opportunity that I had to photograph his entire family. These boys are super busy, but oh-so-fun! Thank you for spending your evening with me, O’Blenes Family. It was a pleasure!
The “Look at Me!” Baby Session is a great option if you are interested in a session for your baby between 3-12 months of age. This “mini” session provides enough time to achieve a nice variety of set-ups and poses, while also keeping baby interested and happy
Lucas came to see me for his baby session to mark his 4-month milestone. He’s such a handsome little guy!
Every time I photograph a family, I am humbled and so grateful that they have chosen me as their photographer. My clients invest in me, and therefore I feel that it is very important that I invest in myself as well — for both the benefit of me as a photographer, and for the benefit of my clients. Prior to me starting up my business, I invested time and money taking workshops to learn more about different aspects of photography and post-processing. For me, the learning hasn’t stopped. Every year I make a list of areas that I would like to improve upon, or new skills that I would like to learn, and then I seek out continuing education opportunities that correspond to these areas. This past year alone I have taken several online workshops, self-study courses, and have also joined some forums and continued my membership with the National Association of Professional Child Photographers. All of these mediums have helped me grow and improve my craft, and I must say that I am pretty proud of how I have progressed thus far. Although I still have a lot that I would like to learn, and there is always room for improvement, I have noticed growth within myself as an artist and am glad that the hard work is paying off.
Each year the National Association of Professional Child Photographers hosts two image competitions for its members. I entered two of my favourite images into the competition this past July, and I am so thrilled to share that one of my images won First Place in the ‘Babies’ category. Upon learning of the news, I was beyond surprised…but I was completely elated as well! I am so honoured to have my work recognized amongst such amazing talent. Without the continued support of my clients though, this would not have been possible. I am thankful to my clients for continuing to provide me with opportunities to be creative while working alongside them to capture special memories for them. I am absolutely in love with what I do, and I am so blessed that you, my clients, enjoy my work enough to invest in me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Whenever I receive a newborn inquiry, I always recommend that the session be completed within the first two weeks of baby’s arrival. Although it can be a very busy time for the new parents, it is also a fleeting time for baby as he/she continues to grow and change by the day. It’s so important to capture this special time for your new family. By completing the newborn session within the first 14 days of baby’s birth, we are more likely able to achieve those sought after sleepy, curly poses that make you swoon, and you will always have special images that show your baby’s new-ness and purity within those early days. Although I prefer to stick to the 14-day timeframe for newborn sessions, I never turn away older infants. I think that it is important to capture your child at any and every stage in his/her growth. It is definitely more of a challenge to photograph babies 3+ weeks within a traditional “newborn session”, and it is likely that they will be awake for the majority of the session, but it is still possible to capture beautiful images that will be cherished by baby’s family for years to come.
Baby Camden’s mom contacted me when he was 5-weeks old to book his session. Camden was wide awake and alert for most of his session, but we were able to get a few sleepy shots too. I love his expressions and eye contact in the awake shots. How adorable is he?!
This family of three added two adorable new members to their clan this past August. Identical twin girls Sophia and Olivia made a visit to my studio when they were 1-week old. Although twin sessions are so rewarding and fun to photograph, they also entail a lot of work and patience. They cooperated quite well for their session, and I was really happy with the shots that we got. This lovely mama is my hero — raising 3 kids under the age of 2 deserves a medal in my book! Meet the Huerto’s….family of FIVE!
I had a great time catching up with little Sophie and her parents at her First Year/Cake Smash session. We began our session outdoors, and then moved into the studio for the messy portion of the session. At first Sophie wasn’t too keen on the cake, but her parents came up with a genius idea — they put some Cheerios on top of the cake (which happen to be one of Sophie’s favourite snacks), and it was a “smashing” success! Happy 1st Birthday, Sophie! I enjoyed capturing your pre-birthday celebration
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing this sweet baby girl and her parents. Abigail’s parents brought along a few accessories to incorporate into their photo session, including a special quilt made by Abigail’s grandmother, and a set of pearls belonging to her great-grandmother. I was more than happy to include these items in a couple of set-ups. I am always open to having clients bring 1-2 personal items to include in their newborn session…afterall, they are YOUR images and by adding a personal touch within them, it just makes the images that much more special
