Lina | Waterloo Region Newborn Photographer

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.

Elliott | Waterloo Region Newborn Photographer

Today we are featuring another family on the blog that we have watched grow and expand over the years, and were so excited to capture little Mr. Elliott’s addition to the family.  He was very curious in his session, and not entirely sure that he wanted to sleep and miss all the action, but his adorable little face made the session worth it!  Patience and all

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!

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!!!

Cole | Waterloo Region Newborn Photographer

It’s been a busy couple of months here at the studio, and we have so many adorable babies, families and children to show you!  It’s been a while since we’ve had anyone up on the blog, so starting with the adorable Mr. Cole seemed like a great idea.

Cole was so tiny and precious, sleeping like a dream for his session (once he decided that sleep was a good idea), but when he was awake, it was incredible.  I’ve never had the privilege of photographing such a calm, alert and attentive newborn- he followed the camera wherever I went, and seemed to be peering straight into the lens!

Grandma and Grandpa came later in the session to bring Cole’s big sister, and she was just as adorable as Cole, hamming it up for the camera!  It became an entertaining studio, with a giggling toddler, content baby and my own cat decided to come join the show and try to steal the hearts of grandma and grandpa 😉

Thank you so much for allowing me to capture your adorable little family.

Welcoming Lincoln | Waterloo Region Maternity, Birth & Newborn Photographer

Working with a family through their entire pregnancy, through welcoming baby and newborn photos, is an unbelievable experience.  Add to this experience that this woman is your best friend and there are bound to be high emotions around the whole thing!  We have captured this family through ALL the highlights in their life, engagement, wedding, maternity, birth, newborn, first birthdays, second birthdays and on… going through this with baby number two added more excitement.

We first welcomed them into the studio for some maternity photos, a few short weeks before Lincoln made his grand appearance!

 

Then came the day that Lincoln decided to make his move!  It was a funny morning… first a text “hey, I’m seeing midwife this morning to try and get things moving” then shortly after “so I think maybe things are starting but I don’t really know, midwife will be here soon” I asked if I should be rescheduling my session I had scheduled for 11am, and got a “no don’t worry about it”

I planned to go ahead with the session, that was thankfully with a friend!  Then came the text… “5cm, but doing okay, come when you can” and only minutes later “Okay, I think you need to come”

as I frantically rescheduled my 11am session, grabbed my gear and headed over to Michelle’s house.  Things went very quickly, yet Michelle was joking and laughing between contractions.  Garrett worked really hard to get that tub filled and ready… but all for naught, Mr. Lincoln decided he wanted to come, and the water birth was not going to happen!  It was wonderful to capture the moment he arrived (in between being a friend, holding her hand and helping through contractions), and being able to see another little soul brought into the world!

Welcome to your life Lincoln!!

 

Only a week later, Mr. Lincoln joined me in studio for his newborn session!  Like his big sister, he did not want to sleep, but with a little bit of magic, we pulled it off!!

Thank you for having me capture all these amazing moments in Lincoln’s life ❤

xoxo Christine

Lucas | Waterloo Region Newborn Photographer

We see a lot of babies in studio… a lot!  But then there are some that come in like Mr. Lucas and his big sister, and they are so adorable that words can’t even do justice… so we will let the photos speak for themselves!

 

congratulations on your beautiful family, and thank you for trusting us to capture it! ❤

xoxo James & Christine
