Candid Family Photography | Burlington Family Photographer

It sounds pretty effortless doesn’t it, “candid” family photography?!

You tend to think fun, interactive, playful families that don’t require any direction.  And while that’s the look that I always aim to produce during my family sessions, it’s not always effortless or entirely candid.

It can often be quite a challenge to capture these candid interactions.  You see, not a families have that instinct to be affectionate during a photography session.  I’m certain it’s because we’ve been directed from a young age to ‘look at the camera, okay, now smile’.  Believe me, we hear it often as young children and it simply becomes engrained in us over time.

This family has certainly helped me nail the effortless look of candid family photography!!  Maybe it’s because they’re comfortable working with me at this point, or maybe they’re just that fun loving type of people.  Either way, their affection and playfulness made for an absolutely beautiful session.

I hope you adore these images of your most favourite people Mum!!  The 4 of you were so much fun to document!  May these images always remind you of the fun loving Mum that you are!

Referral | Burlington Newborn Photographer

Photography is a business that becomes successful not only by beautiful imagery, but also from client referrals.  I see it all the time on social media forums, people looking for someone to capture important times in their lives, and their friends and family members suggesting photographers that they’ve used in the past.  It’s a natural progression and  a huge part of my business!!

I’m so thankful for all these wonderful clients of mine that pass along my name, share my work, and trust in me to capture special times in their lives.  Be it the birth of a new baby, or simply documenting your children’s growth over the years, they’re all special in there own way!!

One thing I’m missing though is an appropriate way to thank my clients for referring me to their loved ones.  And so, I’m looking to all of you, my lovely followers, to offer suggestions and ideas on how I can show my appreciation.  Leave your suggestions in the comments below……if you have any 😉

I bet after reading this far, you can image how this babe came to me, yup it was a referral, and one that I am so very thankful for!!!  Had it not been for my awesome neighbours (who also happen to be clients), I would not have had the pleasure of meeting this darling girl at a ripe 6 days of age.  I also would likely not have heard how much she was longed for, how her family prayed for her existence for years, how she became the rainbow baby that is so very loved.

She may have a tiny little body but she certainly has a huge presence, and one that fills a space in many peoples hearts.

I’m so thrilled to have been given the pleasure of meeting her, documenting her fresh, newborn details, and hearing the story of how she came to be.

I can’t thank you enough for entrusting in my with your baby girls newborn photos.  I hope you adore them just as much as you do that precious little girl!!

Fall Sunset Sessions | Burlington Family Photographer

There is so much beauty in the Fall season.  Not only the gorgeous orange, red, and yellow tones of the foliage but also the setting sun and all of its warmish hues.  Add in a beautiful, playful family and the results are magic!!

I love seeing the three of you every year!  The growth in your sweet boy just about blew my mind this year.  His face is changing, he’s loosing his baby and morphing into a young boy;  how fast it seems to have happened!

I can’t thank you enough for coming back to me year after year to document your family!  I absolutely love capturing you each and every time!

I hope you love your peek!!

She makes Three | Burlington Newborn Photographer

This darling girl, the baby of the family, only days old, and already so loved and protected by her big brothers!!

These three seriously turned my heart to mush, the way they held her so firmly, snuggled so close, and had so much patience and love for her.  It was so incredibly heart warming to watch them interact and I absolutely loved documenting their love for her!

I not only enjoyed photographing the three kids together, I also really enjoyed capturing her fresh new details.  We all know how fast a newborn baby grows and changes which makes these detailed images all the more treasured.

I hope you love these images just as much as I loved capturing them Mom and Dad!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful children with me!  They’ve made a huge impact on my heart, as I’m sure they do to you daily!!

Patience | Burlington Newborn Photographer

Working with babies requires a big dose of patience.  It’s not the type of session that you can plan on completing in a certain amount of time.  Every baby is different and some require more time then others to feed, settle, and so on.  Not only that but once the baby is settled there’s still the art of getting them into a prop comfortably and in such a way that is pleasing to the eye, so as not to look flat or squished.

It’s not only the session itself that requires patience, it’s also the editing.  Keeping a flow throughout the images is key and can sometimes be more time consuming than expected.  Sometimes I find myself going through a session once I feel it’s completed and noticing minor details that must be fixed and re-editing images from scratch.

Basically, patience is key when working with babies, from start to finish.

It’s not only the patience of the job that I wanted to discuss though, it’s also the patience of the parents.  You can imagine how anxious they must be to see the images once the session is completed.  I know I would be!!

This beautiful baby’s Mom in particular has been so incredibly patient with me.  Her session took place 2 weeks ago, and within that time I’ve only been able to share a couple of images with her as I’ve been away on vacation.  Not once did she ask for me to hurry up, not once did she ask when her images would be ready, not one single push to get a move on, and for that, I thank you so very much Mom!  Your patience is so very much appreciated and I’m super thrilled to be sharing your peek with you today!

Your baby girl was an absolute joy to work with, and I very much enjoyed having your company in the studio as well.  From the moment you walked through the door I knew we were a good fit, because two patient people combined makes for one very successful newborn session!

I hope you love the images so far and I can not wait to share your full gallery with you soon!  Again, thank you so much for your patience!
