Time has gotten away with us over the past few months- meaning there are SO MANY amazing sessions that we have done, and simply have not had the time to put together posts of the adorable babies and families we have been working with!
Miss Lina is now 5 months old… CRAZY!! Her session was back in January and she was an absolute dream to work with. She had the best big brother in the world, who was so excited to snuggle her and show her off.
Presenting Miss Lina…
We have worked with a small portion of the Leonard family for quite a few years- capturing wedding videos, children’s photos and Christmas photos over the years. When we were approached to do a large family session, we jumped at the idea. We knew that it would make for a fun evening, while capturing some beautiful photos for Grandma and Grandpa. Note to self: Hosting sessions during Tim Horton’s Smile Cookie campaign makes for some great cooperation and smiles!!
A huge thank you to the Orchard Home Farm in St George for allowing us to use your beautiful orchard for the photos!
And always a smile cookie to finish!!!
Thanks for spending the evening with us to capture some beautiful moments!

Working with families is so much fun, watching them grow, develop, expand… it’s a wonderful blessing to us! Katie and Tom are one of those families that we have had the wonderful joy of watching and capturing over the years.
For over 4 years we have captured their most precious moments… from that first session in our unfinished basement studio, where Katie came in timid and shy, speaking about their struggles to become a family… through 3 newborn sessions, 3 cake smashes, a couple extended family sessions, a fashion blogging session and more, it has been a beautiful journey to capture. Katie is the beautiful Mama (inside and out) behind www.KatieSpinks.com a wonderful place to check out for parenting, style, fashion and more!
Here we are 4 years later, capturing the first birthday of their youngest daughter Lyric… this family never ceases to amaze me, with the perfectly and beautifully styled wardrobe, to their three gorgeous children, it’s always wonderful to capture them.
Happy Birthday Lyric… you are a a perfect little addition to your family (and I promise that someday my camera won’t seem so scary!)
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:
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!!!
It has been almost 2 years since this adorable couple tied the knot, and had us capture their amazing wedding day!
We were very excited to hear the news that they were expecting their first baby, and were booked and ready for newborn photos… but sometimes, as we all know, things don’t always go exactly as planned, and life gets very crazy after a baby joins our lives. It was 5 months later that we heard from them again, asking us to capture some family photos now that Mathis was bigger and life had settled down a bit… we were ecstatic.
This little man is adorable, there’s no two ways about it! Those eyes… I think I mentioned how envious I was about his eyelashes about 5000 times during our session!
Congratulations on your growing family Crystal and Val, and thank you for having us along to capture the ride! ❤
Miss Mikaiah is always a blast to photograph- I always wonder how such a bold personality has been able to fit into such a little body, which makes for SO MUCH FUN!!
Her cake smash was no exception- she did not want to get dirty, but wanted to eat the cake… so it took mom and dad feeding her the cake for her to eat it, and it was adorable to watch her many expressions, capture the laughter and most importantly, capture her amazing personality at just 1 year old!
Happy Birthday Miss Mikaiah!!
We first met Myles last year, when he was only 10 days old. He had the brightest blue eyes, and an adorable newborn grin… things really haven’t changed for him over the past year. He still has the brightest blue eyes, and the most adorable little grin, which makes capturing photos of him just precious!
Over the past year, we have seen him a few times, and thought it would be fun to create a recap of his first year, through the camera..
Happy Birthday Myles (yes we are a bit late on that!) !! It’s been wonderful watching you grow up, from behind the camera!!
