Happy 1st Birthday Mr I!

Oh this handsome fella….a masculine spitting image of his big sister! I have been photographing this family and their children since big sister was just a few days old….over 4 years now! Not only have they become amazing clients, but amazing friends as well.  Mom, she is insanely crafty and sweet and talented and I simply adore her! Dad is a personal trainer and professional body builder (and who I have had as my personal trainer)…he is so sweet.  He never made me feel bad, or uncomfortable, or self conscious or anything but excited and strong every session we had!  (Check out Marty’s Way Personal Training in Windsor, Ontario….you won’t be disappointed!)

So, with this little Mr, it was fitting to do a muscle theme cake smash! (like seriously….see his onsie? “This is All  Muscle” haha too cute!

And he did what every cake smash photographer hopes for….face first into the cake! Yum!!!

Happy 40th Birthday Katherine!

I’ve known Katherine for a number of years and have been photographing her children and family on numerous occasions.  We both worked in the Veterinary field and share a love of humour and animals.
She’s always been a hilarious woman, so when she asked me to photograph her for her 40th birthday, cake smash style, I knew I was in for a treat!
And of course, she didn’t disappoint.  Prepared with all the “usual fixin’s” for a cake smash, Katherine rocked this session like a toddler! 😉 (except instead of milk or water, we had a little wine)

Happy 40th Kat!

Mr I Heads off to JK!

With a slight tear in my eye, I photographed this sweetheart earlier this year.  I have literally been photographing him since he was in the womb and every year since and here he is, 4 years later and about to start JK!  He is so sweet and vibrant and funny- such a joy to see.  And it warms my heart that his parents still travel back to Windsor for me to photograph him!
I was excited to “surprise” his mom during the session with the “back to school” photos- and I loved watching his concentration as he wrote his name.
Have a great time in JK buddy!

Miss A Turns One ~*Windsor Child Photographer*~

Oh how I’ve enjoyed this past year with this little one! And I always enjoy the company of her mama! I first met her mama a “couple” years ago when I photographed her for her prom! She is just as beautiful and stunning as the day I met her, and no surprise her daughter is so super adorable! Her expressions she gave me just cracked me up!

Miss M Is TWO! ~*Windsor Child Photographer*~

Once again, another one of “my” babies! Maternity, newborn, throughout the first year, cake smash, family and here we are, 2nd year birthday photos! 🙂 I love that I have done the same pose with her parents and her 5 times now- belly to belly, belly to belly with baby in between, then 6 month, then one year and now at 2. It’s just a blessing. She is so beautiful just like her mama, but looks just like Daddy to me! I love watching these two parents interact with their princess, so much happiness and love.

Miss H Turns One! ~*Windsor Cake Smash Photographer*~

Another one of my sweet first year graduates! This is the 5th session I’ve had with this beautiful family; Maternity, Newborn, 6 Month, Family Christmas and now Cake Smash! And I have grown to love them so much! Miss H has always been what I’ve called my little Cabbage Patch Doll. Her eyes and sweet cheeks remind me just of those adorable dolls. And she has the funniest personality to go with it! I am so grateful to gain clients and friends like these; allowing me to document this time in their lives. Recently, since I’m a little behind on posting on the blog, Miss H said her first very intentional word of Baby! It is the cutest thing and I love watching her grow even after our first year.  So a big Thank you to her super awesome parents!!
She also was one of the best destroyers of a cake during a cake smash ever…..with eating almost none of it! She just literally pounded it into smithereens! There was nothing left to the cake except destruction and crumbs! It was hilarious. It also meant I had cake and icing in the oddest locations across my studio!

Miss R Turns One! ~*Windsor Cake Smash Photographer*~

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??)

Miss C Turns ONE! ~*Windsor Cake Smash Photographer*~

Miss C was back again with her beautiful parents for her cake smash! Why does time go so quickly when children are involved? I feel like a broken record saying it, but seriously! Having photographed her over this past year was just so fun! She is just so beautiful with her long lashes and her cute little chicklet teeth!  She wasn’t too thrilled about the cake smash part; I’m not sure who had more fun with the cake (and tasted more) her or daddy! 🙂 And a shout out to her talented mama for making her cake smash set up!  Happy Birthday Miss C ❤

Happy 1st Birthday Miss K! ~*Windsor Child Photographer*~

Miss K had the most beautiful eyes! Her Gramma brought her to see me for her cake smash as a surprise for her mama and dada.  How cute! I totally loved her cute 2 little teeth on the bottom every time she smiled- which I’m happy she did before the cake smash! Since when it came down to the cake smashing time, she just wasn’t as excited as the rest of us.  She truly did not feel like getting herself messy! Good thing Gramma was there to help her out 🙂

The T Family ~*Windsor Family Photographer*~

I love seeing my newborns again! A “couple” years ago I used to work with this beautiful mama before she left the animal field to cross over to the “human world”. 🙂
It’s been a little while since I saw her and I was so happy to see the little man since his newborn session! He was so smiley (and active!) and it was so much fun to see how excited he was and how happy this family is.
He also seemed quite proud of himself that he could stand on my little bed!
