Baby B ~*13 days fresh*~ Windsor Newborn Photographer

I met Baby B’s mama about 9 years ago through a mutual friend, we all became close friends and lucky me, she stuck! ūüôā I have enjoyed watching her grown into the beautiful wife, mama and woman she is today.

I photographed Baby B’s big brother just a short 2 years ago…let’s just say he wasn’t super keen on having his photos taken that day, but really not too much has changed! He came for the first portion of the session to get some sibling shots and it took about 25 minutes of coaxing and singing and playing (and then some delicious coloured goldfish crackers) before we finally convinced him to be in the photograph. ¬†I must tell you, Big Brother E has the BEST grumpy “whatchyoutalkingbout” look EVER. ¬†I really couldn’t stop laughing at it. And then we finally got one! ¬†I know mama was a little worried that Baby B would be a little tricky like his older brother was, but I will say, even with 30 minutes of sibling shots, Baby B’s session was done in less than 2 hours!
He was asleep and stayed asleep the whole time!

To me, he looks just like his brother, especially their noses.  To mama and papa, they look nothing alike!

I enjoyed lots of good snuggles and some great laughs.  Such a wonderful family!

Baby Excitement! ~*35 weeks*~ *Windsor Maternity Photographer*

I had been looking forward to meeting this family for quite some time and when we did, I found out that I had already photographed this darling little girl! Two years ago I donated my time to do a father’s day shoot for Lassaline Ontario Early Year Center. ¬†I photographed many children so that the OEY could print photo presents for the dads. ¬†Well little Miss S was only a few months old! My oh my, she has grown!

They are now anxiously anticipating a handsome little boy (who I cannot wait to meet and photograph in just a few short weeks!). ¬†Once again, I photographed a mama-to-be who was simply stunning. ¬†And once again, I thought to myself “if only I looked that when I was pregnant!”. ¬†Seriously just so natural and beautiful.

This is such a super adorable family!

Miss S was very excited about the farm and all the animals, and was thrilled with our many, and very frequent, photo bombers. ¬†There was a litter of kittens who are now at the very curious, very explorative age….they literally followed us everywhere we went. ¬†Sometimes even jumping and flying by and shocking us! ¬†But they made me giggle….and work…since I had to continuously move their sweet little fluffs out of my way. ¬†I had such a blast with this family and I am greatly looking forward to the message that our Little Mr is making his way earth side!

Miss M ~* 1/2 birthday*~ Windsor Family Photographer

Miss M came back to see me for her 6 month photos and boy has she changed! And not just in the “I’m so much bigger than as a newborn” but in “I now have very light hair and had lots of dark hair when I was born” and “such fair skin compared to my birth tan I came out with”! ūüôā ¬† but one thing that hasn’t changed is those big beautiful eyes! Oh my! The eyes!!! *sigh*

As always, her gorgeous mom and dad were a pleasure and so much fun to photograph. ¬†Since I’ve done their maternity, newborn and now 6 months it has been fun to re-create some of the photos we have done each session. ¬†Such a difference just a quick, short 6 months makes!

She is quite the serious little gal, and was quite choosey as to when she wished to smile for me Рbut she certainly gave mom and dad some great ones!  I think she now looks exactly like Daddy- although who knows in another 6 months!

I love this family! WEB ONLINE USE Macie 6mths July 27 2014 (5) WEB ONLINE USE Macie 6mths July 27 2014 (10) WEB ONLINE USE Macie 6mths July 27 2014 (15) WEB ONLINE USE Macie 6mths July 27 2014 (18) WEB ONLINE USE Macie 6mths July 27 2014 (22) WEB ONLINE USE Macie 6mths July 27 2014 (25) WEB ONLINE USE Macie 6mths July 27 2014 (29) WEB ONLINE USE Macie 6mths July 27 2014 (34) WEB ONLINE USE Macie 6mths July 27 2014 (38)

Sweet Ella Ann ~*9 days fresh*~ Windsor Newborn Photographer

Oh how our family is growing! Just a few weeks after my sweet niece Liliana was born, my newest niece Ella was born! She is the baby sister to the now big brother & big sister triplets! Exactly 13 months from their birth day arrived miss Ella.

Now, when the triplets were born, they weighed in at a whopping 3lbs 12oz, 3lbs 3oz and 2lbs 13oz….Miss Ella had a little bit more marinating time and came out at a plump 8lbs 14oz! When the nurses and doctors saw her they said “wooh wee! We have a 10 pounder!” and were actually surprised to see she “only” weighed in at just under 9lbs.

For my brother and sister in law, she looks like a giant baby. ¬†The triplets aren’t even twice her weight now!

Ella is a beautiful baby (and I’m not just saying that because she is my niece) – her perfect cheeks and plumpness just scream “KISS ME!” (which I happen to do a lot of when I visit.) And she has the same beautiful lips as her sisters do

It’s a busy household over there, that’s for sure- but they all seem to be getting along just fine! It is definitely a different experience having “only” one newborn in the house as opposed to three!

Ella was a a joy for her shoot and even let me try out a little outdoor photo. ¬†I am sure my neighbours were wondering if the chunky little nude baby was a doll or the real deal while we were on my front lawn ‚̧

Little Liliana *~2 days fresh~*

My parents have always loved children, which is a good thing considering in June they welcomed their 8th grandchild and in July their 9th! (and they’ve got 3 children)

My “baby” sister has 2 sons, who are almost 8 years old and 4 1/2 years old. ¬†They are BOYS. ¬†Like energizing bunny, love to do crazy things boys. ¬†Last year her and her fiance were planning their wedding. ¬†They decided February 2014. A few months into planning they got a lovely little surprise in the form of another bun in the oven. ¬†They continued on their plans knowing that my sister would be about 6 1/2 months pregnant at the wedding (but for those that don’t know, my sister is teeny, tiny and gets the most adorable bumps- no one ever believes she already has children, and she fits back into her teeny, tiny sizes within weeks- yes, so irritating to her big sister! haha)
They had decided they “were not going to tell anyone” the sex of this baby. I will say it drove our mother CRAZY not knowing. She would ask or say things to see if she could get my sister to slip up- but it was to no avail.
In February their beautiful wedding took place (and as I suspected, in many of her photos she doesn’t even look pregnant!) She was a beautiful bride. ¬†The ceremony & photos went off great and reception was gearing up. ¬†And then it was speech time. ¬†I took my place as Maid of honour and said my speech and then it was soon turn for the new Mr. & Mrs.

They had wonderful things to say but the breath catcher came when they said “and now that we have all of our friends and family and loved ones in one place, we have a secret we wanted to share……” pause. Pause. Pause. ¬†I was holding my breath and hoping they weren’t pulling our chains. ¬†Pause. Pause. (I swear it felt like forever) and then it was loud and clear “We are having….A GIRL”. ¬†The whole place erupted. ¬†Although I am fairly certain I may have been the craziest one out there. ¬†I have 2 girls, my sister had 2 boys and she was finally going to have a little girl. ¬†Wooo wee was I excited!

The big day came (oh yes, I also had the EXTREME joy of photographing my little niece making her way earth side as I was in the delivery room with her- those photos will follow eventually!). ¬†I couldn’t have been more thrilled to be capturing these moments.

At just 2 days old, my sweet Liliana came to my house for her first (of what we can assume are many) photoshoot. ¬†The “weird” thing for me is that she looks exactly (EXACTLY) like her oldest brother when he was little; so every time I look at her I think I am looking at my nephew but in a dress! ūüôā

During the session I joked that it was lucky she was my niece as she managed to poop and pee on every. single. item.  And on my sister. And my mom. And myself.  She  certainly, certainly made me work for it.

Then 17 days later while visiting, I thought, what the heck, she is sleeping so well, I just need to take a few more shots. ¬†So I did ūüôā ¬†Her cheeks are absolutely squishable, kissable, plump packages of goodness!
