Welcoming Lucas | Waterloo Region Baby Photographer

Over the years, we have met families at random events or activities in the community that go on to become regular clients, who we get to see grow and expand their families!  Welcome to the lives of one of those families ❤ They first met us last year at a public event where we were offering Easter photos… and their little guy did not want to sit still for his photo to be taken, but we made an impression on them with the patience we displayed as we captured some adorable shots of him!

flashback to little Logan:

363A1501

fast forward a year, and we get the exciting email that they were about to welcome another little one into their lives, and wanted us along to capture the moments!  A maternity session, fresh 48 and a newborn session, we were thrilled to watch this precious family of 3 grow into a family of 4!

Starting with a maternity session at Doon Mills Ruins in Kitchener, we had a fun evening capturing Mama’s bump before the baby arrived.  The excitement and anticipation for this family, after everything they had gone through to have a baby, was absolutely palpable in the air!

The Fresh 48 session is great for families who want the excitement of a birth, without actually having me present for the birth itself.  I come to capture the excitement of new family members meeting the little one in the environment in which they were born.  My Lucas came right on his due date, which made for fantastic planning and timing! When I arrived, Logan was SO EXCITED to show me who had arrived in their family, and was very excited to have a new brother to share his love of hockey with.  Watching older siblings interact with the new baby is hands down one of the most heart warming experiences for me  (yes, even when it isn’t a happy response), the amount of emotion in these tiny little bodies is wondering to watch and experience.

 

9 days later, the family joined me in studio for a formal newborn session as well as family photos, updated with their new little man and a certain big boy who is turning 3!!!

Winter Wonderland | Waterloo Region Family Photographer

Looking out the window, it FINALLY looks like winter has arrived in Waterloo Region.  This winter has been a tricky one, especially for those families looking to have winter photos done… mother nature has been a bit less than cooperative!

Looking back into November, it’s unbelievable to look at the tree farm photos we had hosted at Benjamin Tree Farm.  The days leading up to the sessions, we received countless emails “what happens if it doesn’t snow”, and we prepared just in case!  However, we went out to look at the farm the day before the session, and snow slowly started to fall, completely enveloping the tree farm, creating an incredible winter wonderland!  Just two days later, we were back to mud!!

Thank you to all the families who came out to brave the snow and cold for their Christmas photos!  Enjoy today’s snow, go play outside and warm up to the comfort and love of your family.

Madelyn Turns One | Waterloo Region Cake Smash Photographer

Watching this sweet little lady growing over the past year has been a lot of fun!  For a little trip down memory lane, we first met Miss Madelyn when she was just 11 days old!

her big sister was SO excited to have a baby sister to love on and play with! Family001.jpg

Fast forward a few months, and Miss Madelyn came out to see us again, with her Mama, for a breastfeeding and baby wearing mini session.  Although she had grown so much, she still looked exactly the same!  She was still just as curious about the camera as she was at her newborn and family sessions!

and now… here she is again, a whole one year old!!  She was not feeling too well for her session, but still managed to rock it!

Happy Birthday Madelyn!
