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 photographed Miss A’s big sister 2 years ago and it is amazing how much these two look alike. I had to keep reminding myself not to call her by her big sisters name! Big sister was so sweet too- I ran into them at a restaurant a few weeks before the birth and I had a great time with Miss N! She was so sweet and I just wanted to scoop her up and squeeze her.
I went to highschool and was best friends with this little one’s dad and I remember when he and his wife began dating when we were still so young (actually, it was just recently 17 years ago!)- So they have officially been together more than half their lives. So to be able to capture these parts of their lives for them means the world to me. I can really say I was there in the beginning of their relationship, the beginning of their marriage, the beginning of their parenthood and I hope I continue getting to be there always!
The lashes on this sweetheart are incredible! And his pouty lips and kissable cheeks…I am sure they are kissed…A LOT! He was so good for his whole session that I just couldn’t stop photographing him! Which resulted in so many amazing photos that I had to edit them all. I was excited to see the items his parents brought for the session, especially since we’re a Detroit Tigers house! And I think they worked out just perfect 🙂
Another amazing story from another set of amazing parents. These two gorgeous babies were also born via a surrogate to which mom and dad knew and were close to. They were able to see their babies grow and be close every day. And boy! Do these two ever look like their mom and dad! They are like little clones. Little Mr C was so easy going and complacent, his sister, she was the vocal one of the two. She expressed her dissatisfaction with certain poses, all while her brother slept the session away! It is so cool to see the distinct differences in personalities so early on in their sweet little lives!
Woops! So with my own 2 older children home from school for the summer, along with the baby, it appears I’ve gotten a tad behind on my blogging! Well, time to make up for that!
This little guy was such a dream to photograph. He had the most perfect skin and I just loved his little smiles that he offered to me! It wasn’t too long later while I was attending a workshop on Introducing Solids to your baby that I ran into him and his mama again- only he was a touch bigger! 🙂
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 🙂
Miss T was my very last newborn before I started my photography maternity leave. My own little one was due 2 months later and my belly was starting to get too big to do sessions anymore.
I think little Miss wanted to be my final one because she waited two extra weeks to come out and meet us all! Her mom was one of my best friends growing up, we went to grade school and high school together and I got to shoot her parents wedding in Mexico just a couple years ago. She was amazing and so precious.
There was so much meaning through many of these photos. Since mama is an elementary teacher, I had to include the Princess & The Pea theme and dad works in radio so of course, I got to use my radio prop! Grampa also played for the St. Louis Blues back in the day so the jersey was also important! I loved every minute!
This beautiful family was back to see me just a short time after we did their maternity session and big brother was back; this time showing off his brand new baby brother! He certainly loves his little brother and this family is so blessed and adorable with their two sweet little boys! I just wanted to snuggle Mr N the whole time; he was such a doll! I just love all these amazing children, babies and families I get to meet!
