I think it is so important to meet up with my clients before we actually sit down for a portrait session.  We are able to not only go over ideas, but I am able to find out what they do NOT want.  This gals mama was quite certain she did not like the look of the umbilical cord stump.  So either we needed to wait until it fell off, or I would need to do some sort of digital magic.  I opted to just wait a few days in hopes her belly button would be photo-ready.  Not only did it fall off, but isn’t it the most perfect belly button you’ve ever seen?  (FYI: She smelled really good too!!)  Winking smile

I had a great time meeting up with this couple – now a little family of three.  It feels like it wasn’t too long ago that I was photographing mama’s perfectly round belly.  And a few weeks ago it was this perfect little baby.

I seriously don’t now how they can fit so much cuteness into such a little package!  It’s amazing.  This little gal was one of the sweetest little things I’ve had the pleasure of photographing.  She was so relaxed and easy going as long as we did what she wanted to do.  And if you hadn’t guessed, she already has Mom and Dad wrapped around her little finger.  (I can’t blame them though, I’d do anything for that sweet little face!)  I had some real difficulties picking a few favourites…but this is what I came up with.  Isn’t she just the cutest?!?!  Open-mouthed smile

This little cutie was 10 days old.  Newborn babies photograph best when they are between 5 and 10 days old.  Therefore it’s best to reserve a spot while you are still pregnant.  If you are thinking of having your new baby photographed when they arrive, please contact me so we can chat about your session.  Also, why not join me on facebook?  Then you can keep up with any news or promotions that are going on.  I look forward to hearing from you!

I’m very much a name gal.  I LOVE to hear what name a new parent has chosen to give their newborn baby.  And this little guy landed the CUTEST name!  Okay, I totally gave it away…but meet little Romeo.  (Totally love it!)  They were not expecting this little guy to arrive quite so early.  Poor mom didn’t get a chance to finish up work and have some time to herself as planned.  Instead she’s got quite the houseful with little Romeo and his active big sister.  (Which by the way, was the sweetest little thing ever!)  I was so happy to have a little boy to photograph; it seems as if lately there’s been an abundance of girls.  Not that I don’t have so much fun with girls!  But I had just made a new prop (a little boys necktie), that I definitely needed the perfect little boy to test it out for me.  I think Romeo did an EXCELLENT job!  Okay, here’s a few I’d like to show off.  Smile

I have such a weak spot in my heart for dark haired babies, and little Mia was no exception.  She was the cutest darn thing!  But did she LOVE her mama!  She knew right away when mama was holding her; there was no fooling her!  We’d put her down, she’d cry.  Mom would pick her up and instantly she stopped.  She didn’t even need to hold her close to her or cuddle her.  Just her hands on her little body was enough.  I can imagine their household will be a little crazy trying to keep up with the new baby AND her active big brother.  I wish them all the luck in the world!  Smile

As you may tell, I had a REALLY hard time picking just a few to show off.  Introducing sweet little Mia.

All of the little flower headbands were from a local business called i love bows.  She makes some really awesome creations.  If your little girl needs some accessories, please give her a shout.  (And tell her I sent you Winking smile)

I was unsure if it was possible for a baby to have luscious lips.  Then I met miss Lea.  And I DARE you to disagree with me!  She was one of the bigger babies that I’ve seen lately.  This tubby little 9 pounder was big trou-ble!  With way too much excitement going on, she did NOT want to miss a thing!  She’s already got mom, dad and grandparents wrapped around her little finger.  I can just imagine as she gets older!  Okay, I’m just going to show her off and all her chubby cuteness!  Smile

Winking smile Click here for details.


Mom was fully prepared to have an Easter baby.  Complete with cute bunny hat (made by Christine’s Creations).  But little Logan had other ideas.  He thought it would be more fun to arrive a few weeks early.  We didn’t mind though, he was the perfect little gentleman.  A photographer’s dream actually.  Besides a mild case of the hiccups, this boy was awesome!

And now for this first image, I really don’t know what he’s doing.  I may be in the middle of a yawn, getting ready to yell, or is actually giving us the biggest smile you’ve ever seen.  Perhaps he’s just happy to be escaping that swaddle!  Whatever it is….it’s super cute!!  Open-mouthed smile

There are always so many cute girly accessories available to add to baby girl photographs, so I’m always on the lookout for something boyish.  When I came across this little skull and cross bone wrap, I could not resist!

I’ve been getting behind in my blog posts; but for good reason.  There seems to have been a HUGE baby boom over the last few weeks, and I am finally catching my breath.

This sweet little gal was a teeny weeny 6 pounder.  She had a bit of a rough start, but mom and dad were thrilled to have her home with them.  I just love that ‘baby love’ parents have in their eyes when they talk about their new babies.  I’m sure it’s part sleep deprivation, part exhaustion, but it’s all love.  Now introducing sweet little Leah.

A few months back I began working on a small display of photos for massage therapist/doula Anna Belanger’s clinic. It’s a one of a kind establishment dedicated to women in their birthing years. If you haven’t been there, you MUST check it out. She offers pre and post natal massage, labour support, infant massage classes, and yoga. Anna also has many wonderful associates that hold meetings at “the Mother’s den” in the lower level. Some groups have included breastfeeding meetings and birth preparation classes. Although she always has something new going on!

The lovely belly cast you can see in the window is by Ottawa Belly Casts.  They do amazing work!

Anyways, as some of you may remember, I had a polled my facebook fans to help me choose the lucky photos to order up for the display. Sometimes I just love ALL my babies so much it makes it so hard for me to choose! So these were the photos that were selected.

They don’t make them any sweeter than this. This tiny baby girl (only 5lbs plus some) fell asleep as I walked in and stayed that way the entire time! She barely fussed AND, I couldn’t believe it…did NOT pee on ANYTHING. That is just unheard of! As I was just packing up all my goodies she started to become more awake and alert. I took one look at her beautiful eyes and knew I had to photograph those beautiful peepers. So I made a quick set and popped her down for a few more shots. And I’m so glad I did. Her eyes were the most unusual colour I’ve ever seen, almost a blue-brown. I know, it sounds strange, but they were actually a really dark blue-brown colour! Okay, enough talk; introducing sweet little Madrid. (I just love her name too!)

What a cold and stormy day it was to make the drive out to Richmond last week.  But well worth the trek.  This little guy was so alert for a wee 6 day old, I just couldn’t believe it.  I was told he sleeps ALL the time. But he woke up the minute I arrived to set up, and was awake until the moment I packed up to leave. Who could blame him though, so many new things to see! There’s one good thing about a wide awake baby; at least I got a chance to photograph those beautiful blue eyes!

He LOVED to be wrapped up warm. So this gave me the perfect opportunity to try out some of my new hats. Yes, I have been knitting trying to keep myself warm this winter. (It’s a work in progress.)  Winking smile
