Nathan | Waterloo Region Newborn Photographer

It’s hard to believe we are already into 2018, and that it’s already February.  Every year I make a vow to share more of our work, using blog posts and social media to showcase the amazing families, babies and couples that we get to work with.  Then things get busy, our focus goes to editing, shooting, preparing and planning our sessions… suddenly it’s February 2nd and I haven’t even shared any of the work we’ve been doing!

So, I’m going to go back to the beginning of January- to this sweet baby boy that kicked off 2018 for us.

We’ve worked with this family for many years now, and it’s always such a pleasure to see how the kids have grown.  Baby Nathan is a LUCKY little boy, with 4 siblings to love and dote on him ❤

welcome to the world little man ❤



Acadia | Waterloo Region Newborn Photographer

When I arrived at their home, Miss Acadia was sound asleep in her Mommy’s arms.  She was calm, quiet and everything about her felt so peaceful.  As I prepped for the session, she enjoyed her snuggles.  I was secretly thinking that at any moment she would wake and cry, just as I was ready to begin the session… but she didn’t.  A peaceful transfer onto the newborn set and we were able to breeze through many of the photos.

It may have been one of the most calm newborn sessions I have captured.  She woke for a feeding, then settled back to sleep for her family photos (even when her four-legged best friend came in for a sniff)

Presenting, Acadia Rae


Thank you so much for having me in your home to capture these photos for you!

Dominic is ONE! | Waterloo Region Family Photographer

It’s hard to believe it has been one year since we first met this precious family!  Time flies so quickly sometimes, it’s hard to believe.

Dominic was feeling a little out of sorts for his session, but still managed to rock his session (as usual).  Do you remember this face?  This has remained one of my favourite photos EVER.. he just looks so calm and peaceful in his little bow tie.

I am often asked if I think a baby looks the same or has changed a lot since their last sessions… in the case of Dominic, I feel that he looks EXACTLY the same.. the shape of his features, his amazing hair and cool boy personality.


Thank you for continuing to trust us to capture these moments in Dominic’s life.  If has been a pleasure watching him grow the past year!

Stephanie | Waterloo Region Maternity Session

We woke up this morning with a to-do list of things to catch up on, and things to accomplish so we can get through all our Christmas editing.  Before we can do that, it’s time to bring up a beautiful mama to be, who just so happened to email us this morning to let us know that her little man has arrived!  We can’t wait to meet him for his newborn session soon.

For their maternity session, we had picked an October date, booked the location (Steckle Heritage Homestead) and prayed for the best!  The days leading up to the session had a LOT of rain, and we were getting a bit nervous, as they would be driving from London, and rescheduling would be difficult!  That morning, the rain was coming down lightly, but the forecast was showing a break in the rain at the time of the session.  After texting back and forth, we decided to go for it, and bring umbrellas in case of rain!

When we arrived at Steckle, the rain slowed down and we got started.  Would you believe that the rain held off for the PERFECT length of time, and started up again just as we took the last photos.  The colours stood out incredibly as a result of the rain, and the setting at Steckle was absolutely beautiful for the photos.  We are very excited to go back soon for more sessions.

Thank you for having us capture your maternity photos, and we are really excited to meet your little man soon. 519-213-0717

Elizabeth | Waterloo Region Baby Photographer

Some sessions don’t need introduction… where the subjects are just so cute on their own accord… I mean, LOOK AT THIS FACE!!!  She was so incredibly sweet, and LOVED having her photo taken…

meet Elizabeth 🙂
