Miss A *~5 days new~*

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!

Tess & Darin ~*33 weeks*~

I first met Tess when one of my best friends married her cousin.  She was and is, one of the sweetest women I’ve ever met. Her entire family, including her husband, is so talented it’s unbelievable. (If by chance her face looks familiar, her mother is an amazing artist and has used her as inspiration; a painting of Tess can be seen on the side of a building while driving down Wyandotte near Walker road- in fact, many art pieces in the area are that of her mothers!).  I was very happy to hear these two were expecting a bundle of their own! We met at Tess’ nonna’s house and took photos throughout the house and yard.  I really love the kitchen! (Seriously, I want it in my house!)
I have no doubt these two are going to be the most loving, caring, wonderful parents and look forward to hearing the news of little Baby J’s arrival.

Mr L ~*15 days fresh*~ Windsor Newborn Photographer

Last year when I was waiting in the airport to head off to shoot a wedding in Mexico in walked Mr L’s mama and papa.  Mama was a bridesmaid in the wedding and funny enough, years ago when we were in highschool, she was part of the group my husband hung out with when he went to Mexico with our friends!  Daddy to be is also an electrician just like my husband! What a small world. We had such an awesome time in Mexico and it was there I learned of their super exciting, and yet still secret, news! They were expecting and I was one of the first people to learn about this little guys upcoming arrival and I was so excited! (of course we didn’t know whether the little bean was a boy or girl at that time!)
I was very excited to capture this handsome little guy and even more excited when mama and papa got in some shots themselves.  Thank you for bringing your little man to see me; he is amazing. Seriously, look at those beautiful lips and adorable cheeks!

Mr G ~*9 days fresh~*

Nothing could make me happier than growing with a family.  Having a family trust me enough to continue to capture milestones in their lives.  Almost 2 years ago I photographed this cute little family of 3 as they prepared for mama and papa to say I Do.  Mr W was just a toddler but still full of such cuteness!  After having a sweet little engagement/family session we patiently waited for the big day to arrive.  I had such a fun time photographing their wedding; it was a gorgeous day with gorgeous people!  So when they messaged me to let me know that another bundle was on their way and they wanted me to capture this time, I was elated.  I don’t typically take sessions in the month of December but of course I made an exception for them!  And it was another sweet baby boy! And my oh my, is he ever a spittin’ image of his big brother!  He loved sleeping when his brother was around, but once big brother W left, he had worked up an appetite and wanted to eat! I still can’t believe how much he looks like his brother.  And I am honoured to have continued capturing these precious moments for this family!

Happy 1st Mr A ~*Windsor Cake Smash Photographer*~

It took Mr A about 90 seconds to really start to warm up, and about 5 more minutes before he wanted to explore.  His eyes and cheeks were just screaming “I’m too cute to not snuggle”!  His mama told me they were having a blue, silver & white snowflake party so I went with it! He was such a good boy and I just loved having him in my studio.  And as I’ve learned, I have photographed his “future girlfriend” on multiple occasions.  Who knows, maybe one day they will be looking back, making a slideshow for their wedding and each have photos from my sessions! 🙂

I really enjoyed having him in my studio and I hope he and his family had just as much fun too!

It’s All About Family ~*Windsor Family Photographer*~

I don’t often shoot big extended families, even though I come from one, so it was nice to see a big family all together.  And I really enjoy seeing 4 generations together!  This family was so sweet, and the children are A-DORABLE!  The great grandparents were so cute- more than 60 years of married life! Wow! My husband and I have been married for 8 years, just a fraction of their lives together.  It’s almost impossible to think 55+ years down the road!  And to think all these beautiful family members are a result of their love.  And 4 beautiful, handsome great grandsons- to bring so much joy (and maybe only some minor headaches) 🙂 I really loved watching and seeing each their personalities; family and yet all so different.
I love knowing that I was able to capture this whole family as one unit and then as individual units as well.  Life is so busy.  And it passes in an instant.  So to preserve this time together and have photos to remind us all of the love we share; it’s pretty darn important.

Baby M *~6 days fresh~*

As some of you may have seen, I recently did a lovely maternity session with a beautiful couple and I couldn’t wait to meet their princess.  Well our sweet princess decided to make an early debut (perhaps she was so excited to meet me!)
My dear little Miss M came in to the studio sleeping and remained so until it was her time for her next feed (about 1 hour 15 minutes into our session)
I wasn’t sure what to do with myself, she was such a wonderful sound sleeper.  Up until this session, she was my sleepiest and quickest newborn session.  I couldn’t get enough of her sweet little cheeks and her baby soft skin.
And then it came time for parent shots- and if sweet Baby M follows in her mother (and grandmothers) footsteps, daddy better watch out  when she gets older! He is in Trou-ble! An entire family of gorgeous natural beauties!
I look forward to watching this sweet family grow and can’t wait until I get to see little Miss M again! ❤WEB ONLINE USE Macie 6 days new Feb 1 2014 (6) WEB ONLINE USE Macie 6 days new Feb 1 2014 (9) WEB ONLINE USE Macie 6 days new Feb 1 2014 (14) WEB ONLINE USE Macie 6 days new Feb 1 2014 (14) WEB ONLINE USE Macie 6 days new Feb 1 2014 (23) WEB ONLINE USE Macie 6 days new Feb 1 2014 (25) WEB ONLINE USE Macie 6 days new Feb 1 2014 (30)

My New Nephew Baby J! ~*9 days new*~

I photographed my newest nephew when he was just 9 days old.  Which gave me lots of extra snuggle time without having to share him!  He was very interested in what I was doing and loving his mama’s milk so he didn’t want to sleep too much.  Looks like he’s going to be just like his big cousin, my daughter and never want to miss A: whats going on in life and B: a meal!  I haven’t quite decided who he looks like, although he certainly has his daddy’s eyelashes! They are insanely long! (A little jealous, I admit it)

I also photographed him growing in the womb every 4 weeks from 18 weeks, with the final shot being when he, himself, was 4 weeks old.  I love watching baby bellies grow! Truly is a miracle of life!!Jaxson 9 days new March 6 2013 ONLINE USE (1) Jaxson 9 days new March 6 2013 ONLINE USE (3) Jaxson 9 days new March 6 2013 ONLINE USE (5) Jaxson 9 days new March 6 2013 ONLINE USE (12) Jaxson 9 days new March 6 2013 ONLINE USE (13)
