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

Another one of my sweet first year graduates! This is the 5th session I’ve had with this beautiful family; Maternity, Newborn, 6 Month, Family Christmas and now Cake Smash! And I have grown to love them so much! Miss H has always been what I’ve called my little Cabbage Patch Doll. Her eyes and sweet cheeks remind me just of those adorable dolls. And she has the funniest personality to go with it! I am so grateful to gain clients and friends like these; allowing me to document this time in their lives. Recently, since I’m a little behind on posting on the blog, Miss H said her first very intentional word of Baby! It is the cutest thing and I love watching her grow even after our first year.  So a big Thank you to her super awesome parents!!
She also was one of the best destroyers of a cake during a cake smash ever…..with eating almost none of it! She just literally pounded it into smithereens! There was nothing left to the cake except destruction and crumbs! It was hilarious. It also meant I had cake and icing in the oddest locations across my studio!

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!

The P Family ~*Windsor Family Photographer*~

This was one of my last families to photograph before I went on maternity leave! And what a wonderful family to finish with.  These three children were some of the most wonderful, well mannered, adorable children I’ve ever seen. Even the youngest, who is less than 2 years old, would listen and pose just how I asked.  Honestly all of them made me want to squeeze and hug them.  And mom and dad were awesome too! It’s one of my favourite aspects of this job, meeting and talking with such wonderful people and families.

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 R Family ~*Windsor Family Photographer*~

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!

Miss A ~*6 months*~

Miss A is a very tough cookie to crack.  She is so inquisitive and thoughtful that she carefully studies all that is around her with the utmost seriousness.  Even with the aid of her big brother, she held her smiles within and only showed it through her beautiful eyes.
Those cheeks begged to be pinched and kissed….and since she is my cousin’s daughter, I was lucky and happy to oblige.
I was at the hospital the day that her big brother was born, and it is hard to believe that was almost 10 years ago!
Almost 5 years ago I photographed her big cousin for her 6 month shoot and you can really tell they are related! (The image with the cabbage patch doll hat on is the one that I really see it in).  I just love them!

Baby N ~*10 days new*~ Windsor Newborn Photographer

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!

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’s 1/2 birthday ~*Windsor Child Photographer*~

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!

Waiting for Baby P ~*Windsor Maternity Photographer*~

One of my BFF’s since grade school is expecting and we’re due only a few weeks apart! She has been living in Toronto for many years, so sadly for us we get to experience it together via emails, texts and social media but it’s still so exciting!  She and her family were here for a visit and we had to squeeze in a maternity session before I stopped shooting.  We went out to Thiessens Apple Orchard (bummer there wasn’t many apples left!) but it was beautiful.  Of course, it helps when I have such a stunner as a friend to shoot!!!!! I love her so much! (and her husband and sweet daughter). I can’t wait to see if Miss S is going to have a baby brother or sister.
