Miss E was one of only a handful of girls I had this year! And I absolutely fell in love with her. She was beyond amazing and her eyes and cheeks were too much for me to handle. I could have cuddled with her all day long – but I had work to do! And lucky me, she didn’t make me work too hard. I think you will be hardpressed to find a more amazing and beautiful baby. I just love her!
I was so excited to have Miss S in studio! It was the year of the boys this year and it was nice to be able to pull out some girly items! Such a small world; it just so happened that I had taken care of their dogs at the old veterinary clinic I had worked at for many years. Miss S was an absolute dream baby; so tiny and perfect and sleepy and cuddly and awesome (I could go on!). Mom and Dad really wanted to get a Candy Corn photo as it was just around Halloween. They brought the candy and an adorable little hat. When I asked if someone had made the hat for her, dad replied that he did! He learned to knit just so he could make things for his little girl (sigh. Is that not the cutest thing you have ever heard?)
This beautiful family was back to see me just a short time after we did their maternity session and big brother was back; this time showing off his brand new baby brother! He certainly loves his little brother and this family is so blessed and adorable with their two sweet little boys! I just wanted to snuggle Mr N the whole time; he was such a doll! I just love all these amazing children, babies and families I get to meet!
This is the 5th time I have had the chance to photograph this lovely family; maternity, newborn, 6 month, cake smash and finally a fall family session. Sometimes I see my little babies and how they’ve grown and they look so different from their newborn stage; Mr E is not one of those! He has the same cute little round face and adorable cheeks, only now he has the sweetest little blond curl locks in the back! He wasn’t a super fan of his photo being taken beyond the first 10 minutes, until the last 10 minutes! It was a little chilly that day but beautiful out; we had warmer weather a month later! It was so nice to see them again!
Sweet, adorable Miss A is one of my (many) little cousins- 2nd cousin in fact- we’ve got a VERY big family and there are lots of us! She is a tough cookie to crack into the smiles, but regardless, she is an absolute cabbage patch doll! Her eyes are ridiculously amazing- and I could just pinch her cheeks all day long. I remember when her big brother was born, just about 9 1/2 years ago, like it was yesterday. And now, here he is, a big brother, so grown and loving his new sister so much!
One of my BFF’s since grade school is expecting and we’re due only a few weeks apart! She has been living in Toronto for many years, so sadly for us we get to experience it together via emails, texts and social media but it’s still so exciting! She and her family were here for a visit and we had to squeeze in a maternity session before I stopped shooting. We went out to Thiessens Apple Orchard (bummer there wasn’t many apples left!) but it was beautiful. Of course, it helps when I have such a stunner as a friend to shoot!!!!! I love her so much! (and her husband and sweet daughter). I can’t wait to see if Miss S is going to have a baby brother or sister.
Miss R has been one of my Grow With Me babies that I have seen every 3 months since she was in the womb! Her hair has been one of the most incredible heads of hair since she was a newborn! And her eyes….sigh….they truly are this blue and adorable! She loved her cake, in fact, I think she would have surely eaten every last crumb if we let her. It’s been so awesome watching her grow; watching her personality and seeing her family every few months. It makes me sad to think her first year is over and I won’t be seeing her as often!
I loved mama’s idea of her first birthday photo being taken while holding a photo of her during her newborn session- so cute! (and see what I mean about the hair??)
