Mr R *~14 days new~*

Another handsome little babe! Another beautiful sibling that I’m blessed to photograph.

I first met mom and dad when they were pregnant with big sister and I photographed their anticipation of becoming parents.  They trusted me enough to capture her newborn and all throughout her life so far, so imagine my excitement when mom contacted me and told me they were expecting again! And then when we found out it would be a little mister for the sister, oooh how exciting!

I love that over this journey, I get to become not only a clients photographer, but their friend.  One they can turn to when they are worried, or just to talk to.  Little Mr gave mom and dad a bit of a scare when it was possible he was going to make his appearance way early and I hope that my words and discussions helped mom just a little bit.  Thankfully, he “hung around the womb” a bit longer and arrived after being considered full term! Woo hoo!

I’m always amazed at how similar siblings look!

Little Miss R ~*7 days new*~

I photographed this beauty’s twin big sisters 5 years ago (wow! How does THAT happen!) so once again, I was honoured to be chosen to capture this little one during this sweet fleeting time.

And she gave me some of the most amazing smiles! A newborn smile is like the double chocolate cake of the newborn world….we crave it! 😉   And it warms and feeds our souls!

Mom and Dad brought this little unicorn set and she worked it! ❤

Mr H *~13 days new~*

Watching families grow is one of the best parts of my job, and when it’s for people I already love, it’s even more special! I was honoured yet again to be asked to photograph a new sibling for their newborn session!  Big brother S was just a little guy when I had him in studio 3.5 years ago, in fact, he fit on top of some of the very books that mom and dad brought back. To put it simply, I love this family.  I love these people.  And I am incredibly thankful to know them ❤

And like, come on, how cute are these 2????

Waiting For Little Brother

I first met this beautiful couple a few years back when I photographed their maternity session for their first, then multiple times from newborn through Miss H’s life so of course, I was pumped when they contacted me and told me they were expecting again! And this time….a little brother! 🙂

Miss H was sleepy and not feeling her best and probably would have been happiest if she could have slept the entire time, inspite of being a toddler and not up to her normal seld, she was so good!

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!!!

Little Mr Z is 6 months!

Milk baths. All the rage and so much fun! We put a little citrus twist on the traditional floral milk bath for this little Mr!
Let me tell you what I learned; Lime slices do not float. Seriously, who would have thought? (neither do kiwi but that’s not really surprising!) AND this little guy LOVED eating the sour stuff!
He was enthralled at shoving the lemon & oranges in his mouth, I really had to work to get him to look my way! 🙂

But like seriously, what’s more adorable than this?

Nancy’s Family

I photographed this beautiful grandmother (yes, a Grandmother!) a few months ago with her beautiful children and grandchildren.  It’s obvious that good looks run in this family (and good genes too!) and I really enjoyed this session.  I brought along a gift of Toy Story Toys to capture the joy and love of these little ones and it totally worked! Watching them play was so sweet.  Apparently the last time they had photos done the teenagers were toddlers!

Little B ~*7 days new*~

Just about 2 years ago I had photographed Big Sister for her newborn session! I really love when I have the same families return for their children! Although big sister was a little tired, we got what we wanted before she headed off to Gramma’s house for a nap.  I love the hair this little guy had- I felt like I was photographing his big sister all over again! How sweet are these two?

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!

First Communion

I first met Mom and Dad (and Nonna and Nonno) many years ago as clients at my Veterinary Clinic. Over the years I watched them become parents, not once, but twice. I watched lovingly as these two grew each year and enjoyed seeing them all at the clinic when they brought their dogs in.  Miss M made her first communion this year so I was honoured when they asked me to photograph her- especially since I no longer work at the same clinic and I don’t get to see them as often anymore!
