Kids Photography Keswick | Cake Smash

Some may worry that their child won’t behave for the photo session.  Maybe they are shy, or teething, or don’t nap well and always seem cranky (< this is my daughter right here!).  I assure you that even if your child is having an ‘off’ day, we will work with him or her and get some beautiful images.

I don’t book sessions back-to-back, so there is always extra time for play, a time-out, a walk outside to reset.  I want your child’s time in the photography studio to be pleasant, if not totally fun!  There is no pressure, lots of patience and as a last resort a resceduled appointment (This has never yet happened!).

Brynley may have been a bit tired, having a little tummy trouble, and be one to “never smile at the camera”.  All considering I think the session was a success, as mom loved all of the images.  I may not have been able to coax out a real smile, but some lovely expressions that are completely typical of her beautiful girl!!!

Sutton Ontario | Maternity Photography

I think I’ve said this before- one of my favourite things about living and working in a small town, is that there is always a connection somewhere.  Gorgeous Kate (expecting her first child) and I have a few connections- she’s worked with my sister, lived next door to my brother in law, and gone to school with my husband’s sister.

I met Kate and Brandon at Sibbald’s Point Provincial Park in Sutton on a cool spring evening for their maternity photos.  It had been quite windy the past few days- Lake Simcoe rough with waves- but this night was completely still and quiet, except for the birds.  Excited to have returned after a long winter, we enjoyed their chatter and songs as we walked the park, photographing, documenting Brandon and Kate’s relationship as parents-to-be, and Kate’s expanding baby bump.

Here are few of the photographs captured that evening.  I can’t wait to meet their baby boy!

Kate - Kelly is a wonderful, friendly, compassionate and professional photographer! While trying to find a local newborn photographer I viewed dozens of photographers albums and Kelly’s work captivated me. There wasn’t a single picture published that I did not love! I knew she was the photographer I wanted to use before I met her. Soon after contacting her we did meet to discuss packages and pricing etc she was very kind and very passionate about her work! I have enjoyed every interaction we have had so far and am extremely excited to continue working with her for our first child’s entire first year (newborn,6 month and 1 year )

Bradford Newborn Photography | Newborn Victoria

Meet Victoria!

I was so excited to hear this family’s baby news – I was right, it’s a girl!  Isn’t she the sweetest little baby?  So pretty in pink, and blue too, a colour I don’t often use for girls.  What a beautiful newborn session, it was a pleasure to spend time with and photograph this lovely family.

Enjoy your sneak peek Victoria and family!  I can’t wait to show you the rest.

Brand New Baby | Sutton Ontario Photographer

Sweet baby Dylan came to see me at 12 days old.  He even brought his fur-sister!  I’ve had dogs in the photo studio a few times now with their newborns and I am loving this addition to the photography session.  Pets are an important part of the family too, your baby’s first and probably best friend- these families will treasure these portraits forever.

Dylan’s session was styled in blue and gray, with very few props.  I love working without props, and letting the baby be the focus of the image.  Far too often props can be a distraction in the picture, catching the attention instead of the beautiful baby’s face.  My client’s come to me to capture images of their new baby – not a cute new hat I’ve got, or trendy headband.  I don’t ever want your memories to look “dated”, as my baby photos from the 1980’s do.  Yes, props can enhance an image and that is how I strive to use them- to enhance the beauty of your baby, bring focus to the tiny subject, and show the emotion of the moment.

Here are a few simply beautiful baby portraits of 12 day old Dylan and his family.
