Babies | Photography in Keswick

I had a great time with Emery and her family!  Even Grandma Shawn enjoyed herself at this session!  The night before, Shawn made some props to bring and we incorporated them into the photographs – she is so talented!  Emery looks adorable in the tutu, and there is special meaning behind it- Emery’s mom Ashley was involved in ballet dancing.  While I have many props that I carefully select with you prior to the session (we chose coral pink to match the nursery), I always encourage you to bring sentimental or family items to include in your images.

At 12 days old Emery slept like a baby (pun intended, hehe).  She looks adorably peaceful and snuggly in her portraits, and made my job very easy.  It was a pleasure spending the morning with you all!  Enjoy your beautiful photographs!  May they bring back the memory of how sweet and small your brand new baby girl was.

Classic Pregnancy Photos | GTA Photographer

Kylie and Myles were just the best to work with!  I am so thrilled they chose me to be their photographer, despite my location 1.5 hours from their home in Bracebridge.  Kylie was a stunning mom to be, and I just loved her in these elegant maternity gowns.  We chose to do an indoor studio session only, Ontario in March isn’t exactly picture perfect.  I love the images we created together, and can’t wait to reveal their baby’s photos.  Coming soon….  he is the most beautiful baby boy!  (Yes, my blogging is a little behind).  Enjoy a few of my favorite images from their session.

Newborn Photography Birth Announcement

I did something new for Rowben’s family, and thought I would share it here instead of my normal selection of images from the newborn session.

It was a pleasure to have big brother Arjen come in for the beginning of the session, to be in a few pictures with his baby brother.  Sibling photos are some of my favourite (and most challenging!).  Rowben was a darling baby, so sleepy and curly at 8 days old.  His familiy is smitten.  I used a few of my favorites in this online digital birth announcement.   (Waaaayyyy out of my comfort zone with slideshow / video).  I think I’ll start offering these with my sessions though, it was fun!  I’d love to hear what you think.  Leave me a comment below!

A Newborn Session | Newmarket Photographer

I had a hard time choosing the images for this post!  There are just so many that I love so much.  The session was magical….. 8 day old Weston was so handsome, sleepy and cuddly, and his parents are some of the sweetest too (not to mention, gorgeous!)  I often get questions about how the session goes- what exactly happens during those 2-3 hours?  I’m going to take this opportunity to explain a bit of my workflow during your session.

Newborn sessions are totally laid back, calm and relaxing.  This helps your baby stay sleepy and relaxed.  I work patiently and slowly and your baby’s comfort is always my top priority.  Many babies have frequent breaks for feedings and snuggles with mom and dad- and some will sleep right through, not waking once.  Each child is different and I always work within their unique personality.

Weston was a very sleepy boy, not fussy at all, waking 1-2 times for short feedings.  His session was 2 hours long.  We started with some simple, natural posing on a white blanket.

I like starting with a simple black or white background, and natural posing for your little one.  This helps me get a feel for how well they sleep and how they will tolerate being moved around.

Next, we did some family and mom and baby photographs.  Weston was woken up a bit as he was passed around.  A quick feed put him back into a deep sleep.

We also did a few on a black background.  These ones look especially nice in black and white!

Then it was time to move Weston to the bean bag.   Here I will do several different poses, using some wraps, hats/headbands, outfits and blankets.

Colours, props and clothing are discussed prior to the session. I choose the colours and items prior to your arrival based on the discussion we have at our consulation.  Weston’s parents were fond of neutral colours with a bit of a rustic look.

and Macros of course!  Those close ups of the delicate details of your newborn; eyelashes, lips, flaky skin, tiny toes and crinkled ears.

2-3 props are chosen for each session.  Parents hands are always on the baby or hovering nearby when a baby is on a prop.

Thank you so much to Caitlin and Aidan for choosing me as your photographer and allowing me the privilege to spend this special time with you creating beautiful portraits of your new baby. Weston is absolutely perfect, congratulations!
