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!

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.

Waiting For Baby D ~34 weeks~ *Windsor Maternity Photographer*

This beautiful mama to be and I went to highschool together *a few years ago* and seeing her again made me realize that some people don’t change.  She is still a vibrant, funny, excitable, can’t-keep-still kinda girl!  And I love, love, loved shooting her! Knowing from personal experience with my previous pregnancies, not every woman embraces the changes during pregnancy.  It can be difficult to see such major body changes and truly love them.  Christina is not one of those women.  She is a love-everything-about-her-belly woman.  Listening to her, she adores her belly, the bigger the better! She feels beautiful and sexy (and she should; look at her!).  We had a great time shooting.  I do have to admit, I was slightly jealous, I am a few weeks behind her in my own pregnancy but I could not move as fast as her! I swear she did a handspring back to her feet after I had her laying on her back- I could barely get up from sitting! Haha.  Of course, I cannot forget about dad.  He is very excited to meet his little man and clearly in love with this beautiful mama!
And although I could not accept shooting her newborn as it is too far into my own pregnancy to complete it, I can’t wait to hear of his arrival.  Any day now!

Waiting For Baby J ~34 weeks~ ~*Windsor Maternity Photographer*~

A couple months ago I had the pleasure of meeting this adorable family and photograph their excitement as they awaited another sweet boy to add to their family.  Little Mr L was too cute! He was all giggles and just loved his mama so much.  Watching these three interact with each other was just so sweet- and allowed me to capture some very cute moments.  I am excited to meet their little guy, he’s one of my last newborns booked before I begin my own maternity leave!

Mr M ~*8 days new*~ Windsor Newborn Photographer~*

I absolutely LOVED little Mr M’s wrinkles! He had such sweet “old man” wrinkles on his forehead and squishy ones on his back.  His sweet little lips and nose were just begging to be kissed! (I refrained, but I bet his family doesn’t!) 🙂  A few times I saw his eyes as he peeked up at me as if to say “You still here?” but he was such a doll.  It was so much fun to have another little baby to snuggle.  I think it’s safe to say about 75% of my babies this year were boys! It has certainly been the year of the boy! ❤ But lucky me, I got the best ones! 🙂

My Reason For Thanks <3

These two beauties are my reason for everything I do.  They, along with their little sister we are waiting to meet, are our world.  They bring us laughter and joy.  Tears and frustration.  Happiness. Love.

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

Baby A ~*15 days new*~ Windsor Newborn Photographer

Mr A had the cutest little cheeks I’ve ever seen! It took all my might to keep photographing him and not keep stopping to pinch those cheeks (seriously, they were so soft and squishy!).  His mama brought an adorable hat (and matching booties) that were beautifully made for him before he was born and I think he liked it! (look at that sweet smile, how can you not smile back?)
What an angel~!

Baby C *~8 days new~* Windsor Newborn Photographer

What a small world we live in! I was contacted by this sweet little man’s grandmother to book the session for her daughter.  Little did I know her daughter happens to be my dental hygenist and THEN I find out she is also married to the best friend of my cousin!  Actually Mama was one of the first people to know I was also pregnant as I had a dental appointment just 4 days after I found out myself, so I had to spill the beans! 🙂
I was so excited for them and she, in all her adorable sweetness, was just over the top excited when I told her we were expecting too.  Baby C was so awesome, I just loved him! And I had to steal a couple nose rubs with him during his session, he was just so tiny and sweet.  Daddy also brought along a few items to include and I think they turned out just awesome!

*(I also want to make it known that both the football and the train images are composites.  This means that daddy’s hands never left the baby at any moment and it took multiple images to create this final one.  Safety is extremely important to me and I will never compromise that!)* 🙂

J & P *~32 weeks~* Windsor Maternity Photographer

I’m very excited for their little one to arrive, seeing as she is due on my birthday!  I loved doing this session; they were so much fun! Mama had a number of adorable ideas for our in studio shots (I decided to continue to keep those private) and we had some awesome laughs during this session.  Not only are these two super sweet, but look at them! This baby is going to be a triple threat!  I seriously love watching new expectant parents interact with each other, and the love that is growing with each kick and move!

Waiting For Baby ~*36 weeks*~ Windsor Maternity Photographer

These two were some of the sweetest parents to be! For those who know me, I almost never go anywhere without a flower in my hair so I just loved that mom had one too!  Her sweet little bump was just too cute for words, hardly able to believe she was only a couple weeks away from giving birth!  Watching them smile at each other was so sweet; like they were in their own world, completely in love and unaware of anyone else but each other.  Dads smile every time he looked at this beautiful mama melted my heart.  Imagine my surprise that the little guy came a little early.  I volunteered to bring their disc to them (and lucky me got a little peak at the handsome little guy while I did!)
