I've been wanting to start offering 6 month milestone sessions (called sitter sessions), so when I got some amazing new props ordered I did a model call and this beautiful baby girl came in to help me with some sample shots. I LOVE sitter sessions. Babies are at such an amazing stage at this age. Sitting up, smiling, interacting, but not really able to crawl away yet...lol. If you're interested in booking a sitter milestone session please get in touch, I'd love to work with you!
Baby Hazel came to see me in my studio just outside of Orangeville, Ontario, just one day before Easter so I couldn't resist doing some gorgeous spring setups! This sweet girl was an angel for her session. Slept so peacefully the whole time and gave me the most amazing expressions too. We had fun working some of her family's special things into the session, which is always something I like to do whenever possible. I love coming up with creative ways to express each family's personality and interests. Also, I just have to say, I really thought my new studio space was so small that I would find it difficult to use, but I'm loving it! It's so cozy and it stays so nice and warm for the wee ones. So far the babies I've photographed here have all slept like angels! Oh, and I've even included a sweet little video for you guys because really, the cuteness was just killing me!
I can't believe it's already been a year since I was lucky enough to photograph this sweet little man as a newborn! One of my favourite things about my job is seeing my newborns come back again and again and getting to watch them grow. It's so fun to see how their little personalities develop. I especially appreciate clients who make a bit of a drive to get here. Little C's mom come all the way to Orangeville from Cambridge for his session!
We had lots of fun with baby C. He was so happy and laid back and especially enjoyed splashing around in the tub to clean up afterward :)
It's always such a joy to have families come back to me year after year, I love following them as they grow and change. I've been photographing Baby M's family since his big sister was just a baby herself and it was so special to see her embrace her role as big sister so enthusiastically. In fact, Mom and Dad waited to let her hold her baby brother for the first time until I was there with the camera. What an amazing moment! I don't think I've ever seen such a proud big sister <3
