Boy Mom | Ancaster Newborn Photographer

Becoming a parent can truly transform how you see the world, no matter if you have a boy or a girl!  We birth our babies, we raise our babies, we teach them to be kind, caring, loving human beings and we do it all with the love in our own hearts and the lessons that we were raised on.

Being a boy Mom though, that takes a certain type of women.  One that is adventurous and energetic and doesn’t mind getting dirty from time to time.  Who am I kidding, having boys means that your dirty all the time, even after showering!  Because you see, boys are very busy little people, they like to jump off things, slide down things, climb up things and roll and tackle and leap and run, ALL THE TIME.  But guess what, boys are also incredibly compassionate, loving, affectionate little creatures.  When they get a bump or a bruise it’s usually Mom that they turn to.  When it’s time for bed and they want a snuggle, it’s typically Mom that they reach for.  And while yes, Dad’s also play a huge role in raising their boys, they also have a leg up because they’ve been there, they’ve done that, and they are on the same wave length.

This Mom always felt that she would be the Mom of all boys.  It was destined, written out in the stars and now it’s all very real.  Surrounded by boys she is one very happy Mamma!  I mean really, how could she not be with these three incredibly sweet boys!  The tenderness that she has taught them is so very evident in the way they interact with their new baby brother, and while my heart felt like it was going to burst from all the brotherly love in the studio last week, I can only imagine how her heart feels on a daily basis being surrounded by all these beautiful boys!

May the journey of being a boy Mom be a brilliant one, Ashley!

Photographing 4 month olds | Burlington Baby Photographer

It had been a long, long time since I had a 4 month old in the studio, I’m talking years!!

You may think that photographing a 4 month old is challenging, and you’d be right!  I find that 4 and 5 months can be the hardest sessions to capture as babies of this age don’t yet sit up on their own, are too long to fit in most of my props and tire very easily.  That last bit, about tiring easily, while I was aware of this going into the session I didn’t really anticipate this darling girl dozing off for a little snooze in the middle of her session, but when she did, I jumped at the opportunity to pull out my macro lens and capture all her sweet baby features.

What an incredibly beautiful baby girl she is!  Those ginormous eyes, so full of wonder, make her look so much like a doll, and that creamy flawless skin, I mean sheesh, she could be a model at the ripe of age of 4 months.

I loved absolutely everything about this session!  From the moment she arrived in the studio to the editing of her images, I’ve enjoyed all of it.  The subtle tones and the variety of awake and asleep have me so thrilled with how her gallery is shaping up!

I hope you love this little peek at your session, Mom and Dad!  I look so forward to putting all the finishing touches on your gallery and sharing it with you very, very soon!

Until then, enjoy this beautiful girl of yours!

Yearly | Oakville Family Photographer

How often do you have your family photographed?  Monthly, yearly, every other year, not at all?

For me it’s daily, but then again photography is my life, so I don’t really count 😉

I ask this question because I feel that family photography is so very important.  Not only are your children growing and changing so much throughout the year, but also, the idea of allowing your children to look back and see you all together, loving on each other, cuddling, sharing secrets, stealing a kiss.  These are things that we do on a daily basis with our kids, and while yes, I’m sure your children will remember that, it’s also so wonderful to allow them to see that love and connection.

I have the great pleasure of seeing this family every year, in the Spring when the flowers are in bloom, and while I usually capture them in the gorgeous evening light, we switched it up this year for an early morning session, and the light, it was just as heavenly!  Factor in these beautiful faces and complimentary outfits, and it is a session that I am absolutely swooning over!!

I just love how natural their interactions are, always!  And for that, I thank you Mom and Dad, for always being yourselves, for having and sharing so much affection with your beautiful children, and for allowing me to capture your family each and every year!

I hope you love your peek just as much as I do!

Boys, Boys, Boys | Burlington Newborn Photographer

There has been such an influx of boys in the studio lately.  Is it just me or is there a ton of boys being born recently?  From clients to close friends, they’re all having boys!

This sweet little guy is the third boy in his family.  How lucky for him, to have 2 older brothers to look up to and teach him all of their tried and tested tricks.  I can only imagine the mischief that the three of them are going to get into some day.

I have truly enjoyed working with this family from our very first session together!  We have documented many milestones including the fresh newborn phase, the growth at the 6 month session, birthday celebrations, and even family sessions.

With their newest addition here I imagine we will have plenty more to photograph in the near future and I look so very forward to seeing how much this adorable babe grows and changes and starts interacting with his super fun older brothers.  But hey, let’s not rush things right!  For now, may you enjoy the sweetness that your new baby boy exudes and all the love that his older brothers shower him with!

Simplicity | Mississauga Newborn Photographer

When it comes to newborn photography nothing beats simplicity, in my eyes!  Keeping the focus on your beautiful baby is my number one priority!  I think that’s what a lot of my clients love most about my work, the soft tones and simple feel of it all!  You will never see me pull out blue for a boy, or pink for a girl, no oversized headbands, and no toys.  Nope, not here!  I always stick with the neutral tones and textured fabrics to help showcase the soft, delicateness of your babies skin and features.  And while this look isn’t for everyone, I totally understand that we’re all different and are attracted to different looks, this will always and forever be my favourite and my go-to for newborn photography.

I loved everything about photographing this sweet baby girl, from the warm tone of her skin, to the way she fell so effortlessly into every pose she was placed in.  I think she was actually a record breaker for me, as we got through the most props used in the smallest amount of time.  Way to go babe, you totally rocked your newborn session, and with that scrumptious little face, I see many more photoshoots in the future for you!!

Thank you Mom and Dad (are you used to being called that yet??) for sharing your precious baby girl with me!  She was a dream to work with and an absolute pleasure to meet!!  I have loved seeing her beautiful little face on my screen this past week and look forward to sharing all of her adorable images with you soon!
