Your child's birth day is the biggest day of your life. It's such an intimate time. To witness and photograph the birth of a baby is one of the most special things in the whole world. So magical. Such real raw tender emotional moments are captured. The images are breathtaking. And the first hours after birth are so euphoric. The most overwhelming amount of love. It's hard to have clear memories because it's a whirlwind of new life.
To have these moments documented is unbelievably precious. The joy they will bring you every time you look at them! Very special photos for the new parents to have. And very special for your child too!

The first 2 weeks of your baby's life goes so quickly. By the end of those 2 weeks your new baby has already done so much growing and the domino effect of changes start. Photograph your baby when they are new and fresh!
Newborn photoshoots are so calm and lovely. They are held in the comfort of your own home. I bring everything to you! This way there's no need to pack baby up and risk all that stress that often comes with trips in the car. You get to continue your daily routine because I always work around baby. It's often a nice break for the new parents. They can just sit back and relax.
Your heart will melt at the images of your new love.
Here's an example of a newborn session:
Five Days New.
SO many milestones! So many changes!! Life is busy when you have wee ones, so be sure to stop every so often and document their lives! Their really busy, curious, fun, hilarious, clumsy, cheeky, beautiful lives! You really won't regret having collections of photos to always look back on and pass on to your children when they grow. And those photos will be something that even THEIR children will cherish. That's why photographs are the gift that keeps on giving!
The best family photos are natural. A genuine smile, a laughable moment. So I like to plan an outing with the family, this way everyone is comfortable, relaxed and just having fun. But of course, if you are most comfortable in your own home, I would be honoured to come to your house.
Shooting with film really really warms my soul. Taking pictures with a film camera feels way more casual and the whole process is super magical and exciting. Instead of shooting 20 frames of the same thing (like we all do with digital), I only take one, but it's always a carefully considered frame. There's more tonal range, especially in the shadows and it creates a different mood that just can't quite be recreated using digital and photoshop. I will never stop using film....unless it becomes obsolete. I love the nostalgia of it! It's so perfectly imperfect.
A lot of people photograph their children and sometimes have a family session, but feel weird about having their own picture taken. You shouldn't! There's a lot of reasons to have your own portraits taken! Maternity, graduation, headshots, boudoir, portfolio building, modelling, business, and the list goes on!
You can also think outside the box and have a photoshoot for a girls night out, or a mommy group, or friends going for ice cream, or a team playing sports, walking your dogs, or maybe you got a new haircut or a new wardrobe you wanna show off! You can turn anything into a photoshoot as long as it's moments you want to remember. And sometimes, you may just want to be a model for a little while, so do it!
Ladies. I have had 2 babies. I know exactly how you are feeling in this new body. It's fun and frustrating and exciting and heavy and it makes you feel sexy and proud but also unflattering and gross. Let me probably not be the first person to tell you this, but you look radiant. There is a reason why everyone smiles at you when you walk by them!
You may not believe me, but before you know it, you will miss this belly. Don't miss the chance to have yourself photographed. Embrace your new temporary body! You won't regret it!
