Welcome Baby Micah! | Newmarket Fresh 48 Photographer

Hey guys! I'm in a great mood over here because I have had a bunch of Fresh 48 sessions lately and they're making me SO happy!   Baby Micah was only 10 hours old when I met him (I know, his mama Colleen looks amazing for having given birth that morning!).  This little man arrived a couple of weeks early, and was 6 lbs of total sweetness.  New mom and dad, Colleen and Eric, were tired from being up all night, but so full of joy at finally getting to meet their baby boy.  I've posted way too many photos, but I can't help myself.  What an honour it is to witness and document these life changing moments.

Welcome Baby Ada! | Toronto Fresh 48 Photographer

I met little miss Ada when she was only 24 hours old for her Fresh 48 session, and what a bright eyed little thing she was almost our entire session!  She had the most lovely dark eyes and hair, and her parents Gonca and Yalcin were completely smitten with her already.  Her daddy is a talented photographer himself, so Ada will certainly grow up to be as comfortable in front of the camera as her mom and dad! I had such a wonderful time capturing her teeny tiny details, especially those sweet feet and eyelashes.  Also, is it just me, or is there something so wonderful about those blue and red hospital blankets?  It's certainly not that they're soft (ha!), but I like to think that generations of babies have been wrapped in these same blankets in their first hours.  I mean, that's probably not true since people apparently take them from the hospital regularly, and they get washed hundreds of times a year,  but I'm just going to let myself think that ;)

Welcome Baby Cayden! | Toronto Fresh 48 Photographer

Oh you guys! Fresh 48 sessions are my FAVOURITE!  They're just so beautiful and real and as the parent you're in such a crazy whirlwind of emotions and exhaustion (and hormones!) that your time in-hospital just feels like a blur.  It feels so important to me to capture those memories for new parents, so they can go back and re-live those first moments that changed your life forever.  Helen and Glendon, who you may remember from their maternity session, welcomed their perfect little baby boy, Cayden, at the end of March.  He was so so adorable, and I think I smiled at my monitor the entire time I was editing this beautiful new family!  Less than 24 hours in, and Glendon was already proving himself to be a wonderful, doting dad (and already swaddled like a seasoned pro), all the while taking excellent care of Helen as she recovered.  It was an honour to capture these precious memories for such a kind and genuine family and I look forward to seeing sweet Cayden grow and continue to bring his parents joy!

Newborn Baby Elias | Toronto Fresh 48 Photographer

I'm not sure how to prepare you for the adorable-ness you're about to see below.  Little Elias is just the sweetest little thing. He was almost 24 hours old when I met him and it's easy to see that his parents, Kristin and Jonathan were already head over heels for this little man.  It was such a blessing to me to capture the first moments of this sweet family and I hope that one day Elias will be able to look back at these photos and see just how much he was loved, right from the very beginning.

Newborn Baby Harlow | Toronto Fresh 48 Photographer

     

A couple of weeks ago I had the privilege of going to meet this sweet little lady in the hospital when she was only 14 hours old! I've known Harlow's mom Sarah since high school, but we hadn't seen one another since grade 12, so it was so special to see Sarah and have a chance to catch up after all these years.  Sarah and her husband Will were so kind and laid back and it is obvious that they will make wonderful parents to their sweet little girl!  If you have a moment go check out Sarah's lifestyle blog and Will's photography portfolio...I think it's safe to say Harlow will inherit some serious artistic talent from these two!
