Newborn & Baby

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

New Arrival: Baby Cadell | Guelph Newborn Photographer

This family was so great to work with, and it was an honour to capture them all together as a brand new family of four (well, technically five including Lucy, their sweet and very mellow Goldendoodle).  Baby Cadell was 8 days-old at the time of his session, and he rocked it!  M & M – It was a pleasure meeting you and your beautiful family. Thank you for choosing me to capture your new addition!

New Arrival: Baby Raphael | Kitchener Newborn Photographer

I have really enjoyed getting to know this family over the past few years while photographing both of their pregnancies and baby boys.  Baby Raphael is the newest addition and was welcomed with immense love by his parents, big brother Henri, and his grandmother who came all the way from Brazil to help prepare for his arrival.   Meet the very adorable and sweet Baby Raphael, 10 days new.

New Arrival: Baby Carmen | Guelph Newborn Photographer

I was thrilled to hear that this beautiful family was expecting their second baby this spring!  I first met them over three years ago when photographing their first baby bump and baby boy, JP. We completed their maternity session a couple of months ago, and now JP is a proud big brother to a beautiful baby girl — Miss Carmen Rose.  A truly lovely name for a very sweet babe!  Some of these images will be enjoyed by the family for many years to come in the form of professional prints, wall canvases, and unique wooden image blocks.
M Family — Thank you so much for choosing me to capture these momentous milestones in your lives. You have such a beautiful family!

New Arrival: Baby Emily | Guelph Newborn Photographer

I recently had the privilege of photographing a brand new beautiful baby girl, along with her awesome family!  It’s easy to see that this family is completely smitten with their new addition.  I have gotten to know baby’s mama pretty well over the past couple of years through networking. Sandra owns  Guelph Wee Piggies & Paws and does lovely work — some of you may recognize her, as I frequently refer my newborn clients her way 😉   I was beyond thrilled and honoured when she asked if I would photograph her newborn session.  I have many favourites from our session together., and am including just a few here.  Meet Baby Emily, 6 days new…

Newborn Sessions | Guelph & Area Newborn Photographer

Did you know….it is highly recommended that newborn sessions be booked while mom-to-be is still pregnant, as these sessions are very time sensitive. Newborns and their families are welcomed into the studio between 5-14 days after baby’s arrival in order to capture those tiny, beautiful new features, and sleepy, curly poses that parents often desire. For more information on session options and rates, please feel free to connect at info@definingmomentsphotography.ca I would be truly honoured to capture your newest addition!
