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!
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 ❤
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!
I love this little man! I photographed him when he was just a wee 5lbs for his newborn session and we did a family session for his one year! His smile and his little toddle as he walks just melts hearts.
Mama does some photography herself, especially for reporting so she took photos of him during the first year. Daddy messaged me as mama’s birthday was approaching saying he wanted to get her a gift certificate to use towards a family session. I kid not, the same day mama messaged me about the cost of a session in hopes she could convince her husband to have a session done as he always said she could take the photos herself. I was so excited! She was going to be so excited and surprised when she got her birthday gift!
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!
I first met Mr A and his family last year during my Christmas mini session (I had met his mama when she helped with her triplet nephew and nieces photoshoots!) They are just about the sweetest, nicest people you will ever encounter. It comes as no surprise to me that Mr A is just as sweet and adorable! He has grown quite a bit from when I met him at just 4 months and his hair is awesome. And I think it’s safe to say he greatly enjoyed his cake smash! He truly went to town, and gave me some of the best shots, action shots and expressions ever~!
Happy Birthday Big Boy!

I first met Mr L’s mama a few years ago when I purchased a couple photography items from her, she was running a business making headbands and I love supporting local businesses. I then photographed his big sister for her cake smash. Here we are now, Mr L is turning one and it was his turn! Look at those amazing eyes, BOTH kids have incredible eyes that you just can’t help but stop and stare….they are so cute!
Mama made his super cool banner for his cake smash (how adorable!) and what a great way to preserve some of those milestones!

I have been photographing Mr E. since he was in the womb! And I have loved watching him grow over this first year. Some times, my babies look very different from when they were newborns, and other times, like with Mr E, they look exactly like they did as a newborn….only bigger! His sweet cheeks and little blond curly wisps have been growing and getting cuter every time I see him! Always the cautious guy, he holds his smiles in and cracks one every once in a while….at least with those he doesn’t know. He’s a bowl full of smiles when it comes to mommy and daddy snuggling him! Happy Birthday Mr E!!!
I photographed Miss Z almost exactly one year ago and I was so excited to have her back in studio for her cake smash. She certainly did not lose her adorable cheeks that she had during her newborn session! She was so excited and happy to get to that cake, she even picked the whole thing up! I love being able to do comparison shots; how amazing is life?
It’s so hard for me not to keep and squeeze every sweet child that I photograph, I may capture their photos but they totally capture my heart (I know how cheesy that sounds but it is totally true!) I really love my job!!!!
