I’m getting a little behind in my postings because of the holidays.  But things are beginning to look normal around here – I hope!

So I met up with this family a week before Christmas.  The little newbie was 3 weeks old; and his big brother and sister just adored him.  I’m amazed he slept through some of the “love” they were giving him!  Brother and sister were so funny.  I even had them perform a little concert for me while Mom was feeding the little one.  I tried to pick a few images to show off, and then I had to weed them down again.  I just had too many faves!!  So here’s what I decided on.  Smile

Happy New Year everyone!!  What a year this has been for me!  I’ve had the opportunity to photograph many expanding bellies, lots of wee babes and a pile of families.  You can now view my work at quite a few places around the city.  3D Miracles ultrasound clinic, Ottawa Integrative Health Clinic, Hands on Health massage therapy, and now at FAB Baby Gear!  (You can also purchase newborn packages directly through them AND the packages are on their baby registry.)

Okay, I have to share some favourites from 2011!!  Open-mouthed smile

I had SO much fun with this little guy!  He constantly had his hands doing something.  At one point it looked like he was talking on the phone, then he relaxed them beside his face and he looked so peaceful.  I even managed to catch him playing a little air guitar!  This kid was crazy!  But very content, and he let me play with him until he was tired…and then he let us know he was done.  Smile

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

This family was so excited to meet their little boy, as you can see in their maternity photos.  And he FINALLY arrived!  I couldn’t believe how alert and calm he was.  I have never seen a new baby so happy to just look around at everything.  He was awake for almost an hour and a half straight, and so happy!  I was glad to be able to capture those big blue eyes; and oh his expressions were funny!

I don’t think you can even IMAGINE how excited I was to be contacted by this family to photograph their new baby boy.  They had been through so much to get this little guy here.  (One of those true miracle kinda stories.)  So I was honoured to be chosen to capture those first few weeks.  He was probably the oldest newborn I have worked with at mere 15 days old.  But technically he wasn’t due to be born until the end of September anyways.  A wee little peanut though, and OH SO ADORABLE!  Winking smile  I could have played with him all day (if he would have quit making messes on Dad!)

And I LOVE being right!  Winking smile  It’s not very often these days that parents willingly choose not to find out the sex of their baby.  With modern technology, there’s no reason to wait those 9 months to find out if you are painting the nursery walls pink or blue.  But these guys decided to wait it out the old fashioned way.  They apparently had no thought either way whether it was a boy or girl.  But I had such a STRONG feeling she was carrying a little girl.  And I was right – a little princess was born!

And what a little princess she was.  I could tell that she already has Daddy wrapped around her little finger.  (Except when we WANTED her to wrap her finger around her Daddy’s, then she chose NOT to.)  What a little personality – and she was only 8 days old!

You can see their maternity photos here.  And now introducing the little princess.  Isn’t she adorable??

I was so excited to be asked to photograph this family’s new little bundle of joy.  I have been able to watch their clan grow from a couple, to a family of three, and now four over the last few years.  This was them just a few months back at their maternity session.  And their daughter before her first birthday last year.  Oh my how she has grown!!

And now to introduce the newest addition.  I found she looked a lot like her big sister as a new baby, but her colouring was definitely a little different.  It’s so neat to compare their features and figure out where they came from.  Regardless, she was definitely a little sweetheart.  And here she is!!  Smile

I prefer to photograph newborn babies when they are brand new, between 3 and 10 days.  Therefore if you would like to set something up, it’s best to reserve your spot while you are still pregnant.  I look forward to hearing from you!!

This little family has grown another 2 feet.  After having two girls, I can imagine what a surprise it was to find out they were having a baby BOY!  Even though Mom said she didn’t know what to do with a little boy, I think it all comes naturally.  The girls completely adore their baby brother, and were so eager to help me take photos of him.  He was so adorable…I just wanna show him off!!  Smile
