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!!!

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!

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!

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.

Family Love ~*Windsor Family Photographer*

I met two of these little girls a couple years ago when I photographed them with another one of my clients who is their cousin. And they are just as sweet now as they were then, if not more so! This time around they brought their Aunt, Uncle and another cousin with them! We went to the apple orchard to take photographs, but sadly, there weren’t many apples when we went! But it doesn’t matter, these girls brought their own sweetness to the shoot!

Our Sweet Daughter

Some of you may know that we recently welcomed our third daughter into our family. She was born on January 5th weighing 8lbs 3oz, with what seems like 3lbs of that in her cheeks alone.
She was just 3 days fresh in the first three images, 2 weeks old in the images with my other daughters and 7 weeks old in the last outfit.
My oldest daughter, who is 8.5 years old, wore my wedding dress, my middle daughter who turned 5 a week before her sister was born, wore my veil and we wrapped our youngest.  I am just in love.
The last image was taken for a model shoot for a vendor who made that little outfit (Handmade Trend).

She’s the reason (and a good one!) as to why it’s been somewhat quiet over in my photography world.  Her sisters are very happy and love her so much.  They were both (especially the 5 year old) very excited to learn to change diapers and on occasion argue over who will get to do it! They are very helpful to me and want to kiss her constantly. (Which sometimes results in her waking up which results in a somewhat unhappy mama!) 🙂

If you are expecting and having a midwife, you may see some of these images up at the Midwives of Windsor office during the year 🙂

 

The D Family ~*Windsor Family Photographer*~

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!

Miss A and her Family ~*Windsor Family Photographer*~

It is fitting that my sweet Miss A is my 200th blog post! 🙂 This adorable girl has been coming to me since she was a newborn, for various shoots and model shoots too! She is just the sweetest; it’s unbelievable how well she listens when given any direction for her photos.  And her smile melts my heart.  My husband has also fallen in love with this little girl; he comments every time he sees her photos and has even said she makes him want another child (and since we’re having another baby perhaps we should thank her?).  I am happy to call her parents my friends and love both our professional relationship and personal friendship.

Miss H ~*1/2 Birthday*~ Windsor Child Photographer~

Miss H was back in the studio for her 1/2 birthday photos and what a sweetie she is! My daughters (especially my youngest) just loved her and wanted to hold her the whole time.  She has the most beautiful eyes and sweet blond hair; and her smile is too cute! I can only imagine how much her cheeks get kissed when she is this sweet! Honestly, she looks so much like a cabbage patch doll!
