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

I have known Miss M’s mama for a long time. She was just a sweet quiet tween and we shared the same love of bowling (yes, bowling).  Funny thing about growing up, is that once you reach a certain age, no matter the age gap, we all become the “same age”.  And I think having children close whatever the gap may be.  Although there are only a couple years between us, I still think “when did we become the same age”? She has certainly grown into a beautiful wife and mother (actually, quite stunning) 🙂 Now although I haven’t known Papa that long, he is just as sweet and adorable as his wife and I have loved watching him take care and love his girls. (Ok, he’s pretty handsome but we don’t want it to go to his head) 😉
When Mama and Papa asked me to capture their pregnancy, newborn, 6 months and now 1st year cake smash, it made my heart swell with pride and love.  Following a family on a journey like this also allows me to do something else I love; progression shots.  I love being able to show the progression of life with similar shots taken along the way.  And hands down, some of my favourite progression shots are from Miss M’s first year. I love her. I love her family.
Her crystal blue eyes are incredible. So incredible they almost don’t seem real.  And try as I might, the photographs just don’t truly capture their full beauty (you can tell they’re gorgeous, so just think about how much more they are in real life!)
Happy Birthday Miss M! And happy 1st Parent Birthday to her mama and papa!

Happy 1st Mr A ~*Windsor Cake Smash Photographer*~

It took Mr A about 90 seconds to really start to warm up, and about 5 more minutes before he wanted to explore.  His eyes and cheeks were just screaming “I’m too cute to not snuggle”!  His mama told me they were having a blue, silver & white snowflake party so I went with it! He was such a good boy and I just loved having him in my studio.  And as I’ve learned, I have photographed his “future girlfriend” on multiple occasions.  Who knows, maybe one day they will be looking back, making a slideshow for their wedding and each have photos from my sessions! 🙂

I really enjoyed having him in my studio and I hope he and his family had just as much fun too!

Happy Birthday Mr A ~* Windsor Cake Smash Photographer*~

I love my job. There is no way around that statement to make it untrue.  I love that my friends and family trust me enough to photograph them and I love that perfect strangers trust me enough to come to me without knowing me.  I love that friends of mine, who no longer live in the city, travel back to Windsor and book sessions for when they are home so that I can photograph them. And that’s where Mr A comes in.  I photographed his big sisters cake smash just a couple years ago, she was a hoot! I think she was my messiest cake smasher!  These kids are so incredibly adorable and I love them! I wish they lived closer so I could see them on a regular basis (thank goodness for the magic of Facebook!).  I love their mama, she is one of my longest and dearest friends.  Friendship literally spanning decades (weird! I’m so young!)
Mr A has a smile (and dimples!) that totally melt your heart.  Mama made this adorable cake and he wasted no time jumping right into his cake (brother like sister) 🙂
I dare you not to smile looking at these!

Happy 1st Birthday Miss L ~*Windsor Cake Smash Photographer*~

I photographed Miss L almost exactly one year ago (364 days ago!) for her newborn session- and I am always still blown away what a difference a year makes.  She was so teeny tiny and now she is so rolley polley!  I love her little smile with her little teeth showing! We “recreated” a couple shots at the request of mom and boy does it ever show the difference! She was a doll for her session although she did keep many smiles to herself….that is, until we put her in her “clean up bath” after her cake smash.  Then we couldn’t get her to stop smiling! Mom says she LOVES bath time and it is obvious! This is the third time I’ve got to photograph this little girl and family and they are just the sweetest! Daddy and his three daughters- boy oh boy, seeing a dad with his daughters gets me. Every. Time.  Perhaps it’s because of my own husband and our two daughters, or the love for my own dad, but man, you want to make me melt? Show me a dad being a goof with his daughters, putting hair clips in his hair, painting nails, tickling, laughing and listening o their daughter and I will show you a big pile of mushy photographer!

And Miss L’s two older sisters are so sweet.  So well behaved and polite and smiley! I love it!
