Baby Girl Reese | Aurora Newborn Photographer

What do you get when you mix a 2 year old, almost 1 year old and 2 week old, amazing parents and beautiful home together in a lifestyle session?  A suuuuuper long blog post full of fun, candid and snuggly images!  Big brother Charlie was without a doubt the sweetest and most gentle big brother I've ever met, covering his new baby sister, Reese, in so many kisses! Middle girlie, Quinn, was a bundle of energy, movement and adorable smiles.  This little girl was a super early walker and had the speed to prove it!  She was so fun, but started to fade as nap time approached, and graced me with some sleepy cuddles and even let me put her down for her nap! And finally, the star of the show, baby girl Reese.  She was just beautiful and slept so sweetly for us.  She even gave me a smile as she napped in her mama's arms.  These gorgeous children all belong to the wonderful Danielle and Stu, two super-parents who managed their 3 under 3 with a competence and grace that I can only aspire to! This family was such a joy to capture and I am honoured to have had the opportunity to capture their story.

Baby Girl Abigail | Toronto Newborn Photographer

Say hello to sweet Abigail!  I first met her parents, Andrea and Joe, at their maternity session back in May, and was excited to find out whether they were having a boy or girl!  I have great admiration for those crazy people who have enough patience to wait until baby is born to find these things out ;)  It does add an extra fun element of anticipation though, I think!   Abigail was sweet as can be and really pulled of some serious modelling throughout the course of our session.  I had a wonderful morning with these three, and loved capturing this exciting piece of their family history for them!

Baby Girl Audrey | Toronto Newborn Photographer

Audrey's newborn session was full of some of the sweetest cuddles I've had the pleasure of capturing.  This baby girl was a huge fan of snuggling against mom and dad's chest.  And while she was not big on being put down, her parents did an wonderful job comforting their sweet daughter and eventually had her lulled off to sleep! I'm always impressed with how new parents to take these things in stride and how quickly they learn the little tricks that work well for their baby.  I love capturing the new-ness of the family dynamic with a tiny newborn in the household.  I've said it before and I'll say it again...I love my job!

Baby Girl Harper | Toronto Newborn Photographer

Oh miss Harper.  She was the easiest baby I have every photographed!  I could move her as much as I wished between poses and she was happy as a clam and would settle right back to sleep.  Unfortunately for her parents this was because she was exhausted from being up most of the night!  Big brother Preston was incredibly sweet and introduced me to every character from the movie Cars.  He also has an amazing pirate ship bed which I can only imagine is the envy of all of his friends!  This session was so fun and laid back and I loved every moment.  Denise and Albert, thank you so much for trusting me to capture your beautiful baby girl and the love and joy she has added to your family.

Baby Girl Emma | Toronto Family Photographer

Hello friends!  Things have been a little crazy around here, but I couldn't wait to share this beautiful family with you.  Baby girl Emma surprised her parents, Peter and Madeleine, by showing up several weeks early.  We decided to hold off her newborn session a little while to give them time to settle in, and when I met Emma she was the sweetest, roly-poly 2 month old.  Perfect age for a sink bath, am I right?!  Her big brother was so proud and an excellent assistant to dad during her bath time.  I loved capturing this little routine and now I'm thinking sink baths may need to become a regular part of my sessions...I'm hooked!  I'll leave you to scroll through the images below and trust that you'll feel the love this family has for one another and their sweet new addition!

Baby Girl Audrey | Toronto Newborn Photographer

Miss Audrey's newborn session kicked off my craziest week of sessions to date, and what a great start it was!  This little lady was 2 weeks old at the time, and was so calm & alert for the first half of our session that we were able to capture some beautiful portraits of her with her eyes open.  When she did fall asleep she was happiest hanging out in mom and dad's arms.  Her parents, Patricia & Kevin, were wonderful and I loved shooting in their condo with the beautiful high ceilings and giant windows you can see below.  Patricia & Kevin, I had such a wonderful time capturing the love between your new little family and wish you many blessings as sweet Audrey grows!

Welcome Baby Emily! | Vaughan Newborn Photographer

You have to check out this little redheaded beauty!  Her name is Emily is she was simply a dream to photograph.  She slept so well, and then pulled out the cutest, over-the-shoulder pose you can ever imagine, all on her own!  You may remember her parents, Wes and Margaret from their maternity session back in the early spring.  I so looked forward to getting to hang out with them again and meet their sweet little girl.  Margaret only almost cried once, when Emily stretched her little hand out and rested it on her daddy's face, and baby Emily barely cried at all the entire time ;)  I just love getting to capture a family's first days after that sudden change that throws you headfirst into parenthood.  It's lovely, it's messy, exhausting and thrilling all at the same time. Wishing this special family many blessings.

Welcome Baby Sophie! | Toronto Newborn Photographer

I just loooooved photographing this new family.  Jérémy & Cécile were incredibly natural and relaxed and gave me a beautiful peek into their little world and their first days with their newborn daughter Sophie.  This girl got a record number of kisses and snuggles in our two hours together, and it is just so obvious how much she is loved. Her nursery is fully of beautiful, carefully handcrafted items made just for her, including the sleep sack and 'Sophie' sign on her nursery door that you'll see below, and the cozy grey blanket knitted for her by her grandma.  She also had the sweetest little wisp of dark hair over her forehead that I just loved!  Wishing Jérémy & Cécile many blessings as they raise their darling Sophie!

Welcome Baby Georgia! | Toronto Newborn Photographer

Little miss Georgia had her newborn session one day before her due date!  She surprised her parents by showing up a month early, and one big advantage that gave us is that this little peach slept so well for us!  The bright sunny day paired perfectly with her cheery white, pink and gold nursery that Georgia's mom, Kate, did a beautiful job designing.  I think my favourite thing in the nursery was the amazing window ledge filled with books (which will be no surprise to anyone who knows me), although the cozy blue chair takes a close second.  I had such a great time getting to know Kate and Andrew and enjoyed listening to them chat away to their baby girl!  Wishing this sweet family many blessings in the days to come.

Little Miss Lainey | Muskoka Baby Photographer

You know you have a photogenic child on your hands when a 15 minutes session produces basically an entire gallery!  This is what happened when I got the beautiful miss Lainey in front of my lens!  Lainey's mama is my cousin Katelyn (the other beautiful lady in the photos), and we got to see each other for a family baby shower, so we just quickly took a few minutes to do a mini 7 month milestone session for Lainey before the festivities got started.  Honestly, I could have captured this girl all. day. long.  I mean, look at those baby blues!  And that smile! Stop. I can't even handle it.  And this was right before nap time, which as we all know is not when most babies are at their best.  I'll be quiet now and let her sweet face speak for itself.  Scroll all the way down, you won't be disappointed!  Have a happy Friday friends!

Baby Girl Caleigh | Markham Family Photographer

I met miss Caleigh when she was 3 months old, and I definitely forgot what a sweet stage this is!  She's as beautiful as baby girls come, with a beautiful head of hair (complete with an endearing little bald spot in the back!), some gorgeous long eyelashes and cheeks for days.  I have to say I have been getting so lucky with all of the older babies I have photographed lately...they've all given me the sweetest sleeping shots, which are much harder to come by once the newborn days pass!  Caleigh was in her Fisher Price lamb swing when I got there, the same one we have, and it brought me back to the days when Levi was tiny enough to fit in his (insert crying emoji).  I never felt like each stage was passing as quickly as it did, and I still find myself thinking that the current stage will be much longer, but it never is!  Natalie and Justin, I hope you treasure these photos of you baby girl and that they will bring you right back to the days of bald spots and chubby cheeks.

Welcome Baby Celeste! | Toronto Family Photographer

If ever there was a blog post to convince you to have photos taken of your 2 month old baby, this is it!  Little Celeste was so sweet and smiley, gave me some beautiful eye contact and was just a dream all around to photograph.  Seriously such a wonderful age to capture!  Her parents Danielle and Matteo were so fun to work with, and naturals in front of the camera (we know where Celeste got it from!).  Celeste's name was chosen partially because her parent's loved the sound of it in English and Italian, since her daddy is from Italy and it's where her parents met.  I had such an enjoyable afternoon hanging out with this new family and learning their story.  I know Celeste will only add to her parent's already beautiful adventure!

Welcome Baby Cara! | Stouffville Newborn Photographer

The day of sweet Cara's newborn session there was a massive downpour and heavy cloud cover, but walking into this new family's bright and beautiful home, I knew the dark weather wasn't going to be an issue!  Allana and Andrew designed Cara the most gorgeous neutral nursery which we spent a lot of time in capturing snuggles with both her parents plus a few shots of big fur-brother Winston along the way.  One of the highlights of the session, for me at least, was that Andrew ate like half the box of cookies that I brought during our session, so I'm feeling super confident in my baking skills as a result haha!  Or maybe they were just short on groceries, but I'm choosing to take it as a compliment either way ;) Miss Cara was a sweet pea and was happiest snuggled up on her mama's chest in a swaddle.  She snoozed away until we tried to take her swaddle of, which she was not a fan of at all!  So, of course, baby runs the show and we swaddled that girl right back up and she was a doll for the rest of the session.  Wishing this lovely family all the blessings as they enjoy life with their little lady!
