The name of a familiar dancing penguin, the name my son wanted to give our baby girl (don’t worry…we didn’t listen to a 4 year old!), and also the nick name I’ll give this little guy.  He was so happy, and just LOVED those toes!!  4 month olds are not an age that I commonly have the chance to photograph.  But I just love ‘em!!  Babies are so full of expressions at this age, and this little guy did not disappoint.  Just look at those smiles!!  They grow so quickly, it makes me happy to capture these moments of discovery.  Smile

You may ask: “When is the best time to schedule a photo session for your baby?”  The answer may surprise you: ANYTIME!  Most parents feel the need to wait for that perfect moment, but in all reality there’s no reason to wait.  If your baby has just hit a milestone and you’d like to capture it with a photo session – just do it!  It doesn’t matter if they are 2, 3, 7, or 10 months old.)  Winking smile  I’m happy to hear from you!!

I am one that is always interested in a baby’s name.  I think it says so much about the parents and their OWN personalities.  I just have to say that I LOVE the name chosen for this baby girl!  Meet sweet little Pippa.  Born into a house full of boys, she is going to have some interesting days ahead of her.  Her big brothers are totally in love, and mom is just happy to have some pink in her house for a change!  Here she is!!

While mom was not sure about having maternity photos done, she decided to go for it – as they figure their baby girl will have completed their family now.  And I totally agree that it is such a special time, that it’s a must to have a little keepsake.  If you’d like to take a peek at their maternity session, you can see it here.

And as important I believe it is to catch those belly photos, I also think it is so important to capture those first baby moments as those babies just grow up too fast!!  Newborns typically photograph best before they are 10 days old.  So if you would like to reserve a spot, please contact me while you are still pregnant.  Smile

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend!  Ours was quite busy, as we popped down the the Niagara Falls area to be at/in my brother’s wedding.  Here are their engagement photos if you’d like to see.  But seriously, you couldn’t have PLANNED a better day!  (Although these two had actually been planning for the last year…heehee, but you just never know how things will go.)

Everyone was dressed up, my kiddos (ring bearer and flower girl) were adorable, the ceremony was beautiful, we had a fun time with the photos, food was good, and we partied until the wee hours of the morning.  The only thing that wasn’t good was my hair the next day!  (And no you won’t be seeing any pics of that!!)

The bride all dressed up and no where to go.  So she checks in on Facebook.  Smile

just married

You’d think these two just got married or something!

My kiddies in their fancies.  They LOVED the ride in the limo.  Although they both called it a ‘limbo’ ALL day!  Winking smile

bouquet

The flowers were beau-ti-ful!  I loved the fall colours, and the berries were a nice touch.  (Although I had to keep the kids from trying to eat them!!)

wedding cake

My brother – very much into cars…seemed perfectly fitting for them to have a yellow convertible (just like theirs) upon their cake.  Most importantly, it tasted damn good!!  Open-mouthed smile

first dance

A wedding would not be complete without a first dance.  Red heart

Okay, yes I know there are no photos of ME.  But trust me, I looked very nice too.  Winking smile  I want to wish my brother and his wife many happy years together, and have an awesome time on your honeymoon!!
