Newborn & Baby

Two Peas in a Pod: Owen & Norah | Guelph Baby Photographer

Once again, I am hugely behind on my blogging {covers face in shame}, but I’m going to make an effort to play catch-up over the next few days. 😉

I had the utmost pleasure seeing twins Owen & Norah again for their “sitter” milestone session.  I think my face hurt a bit after their session from smiling and laughing so much.  These babies are absolutely adorable and were SO fun to photograph at the 7-month mark.  Here are a few favourites from our time together…

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.

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

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!
