We have been so blessed this year with the incredible couples we have had the pleasure of working with for their weddings. After working with Brennan and Jessica for a couple years, capturing wonderful family photos and adorable photos of their little Maddy, they told us they couldn’t imagine anyone else capturing their wedding. We received an email last year, something along the lines of “we are getting married September 2, we want you to do the photos, tell us what we need to do next” hahah, the best kind of emails to receive!
After working out all the details (we were SO glad we were free!) we arrived to capture their wedding day. Grey Silo Golf and Country Club did an incredible job with the wedding, the decorations were perfect and we were even able to sneak outside for some photos between the rain!
Congratulations Jessica and Brennan, and thank you for having us capture this day for you! Enjoy your sneak peek!
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
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)
Thank you so much for having me in your home to capture these photos for you!
*** Note: Are you pregnant, expecting a child between December 2016 and March 2017? We are now offering a free maternity mini session with the booking of a newborn session. Contact us to reserve your due date now! **
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!)
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!
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! ❤
