My family is filled with girls - I have three younger sisters and two daughters, so naturally, when this family walked into my studio with their three beautiful little girls, I was in heaven! Baby Natalia was showered with affection from both her parents and her two older and adoring sisters. What a lucky little girl this baby is to be surrounded by so much love! Here are some of my favorite shots from baby Natalia's Newborn shoot - she was such a little doll!
Confession - I am jealous of my pregnant clients. Seriously...did YOU look like this when you were pregnant??
Because I sure didn't! Yet somehow, I seem to photograph so many gorgeous pregnant women. Pregnancy is truly magical and getting photos done of yourself and your family during pregnancy is a wonderful thing! I suppose I need to take my own advice and get photos of myself the next time I'm pregnant.
Anyway, I met Meena down at the Toronto beaches to take her maternity photos and I absolutely LOVE the way they turned out! Meena was super laid back and happy to be pregnant, which made my job easy. I definitely had a vision for the shoot and my vision became a reality once the photo session started.
The day I sent Meena her edited photos, I was told that her little one had been born! I don't blame the sweet little girl for being anxious to meet her parents! Photos of adorable baby Arya with her loving parents to come!
Baby brother actually arrived quite a while ago, but as you can probably tell from my lack of posting, I've been on a blog hiatus. I figured since it's officially "back to school" time, it should also be "back to blogging" time. I haven't purposely been neglecting my blog...life and an extremely busy shooting schedule (both amazing things that I am incredibly thankful for) kind of get in the way sometimes! Anyway, this gorgeous family welcomed their newest family member not long after I shot Mom's maternity session! A third boy, lovingly nicknamed, "Baby Brother"!! What a lucky Mommy to be surrounded by so many boys!
Here are some of the photos I captured of this wonderful baby and his wonderful family!

This cutie patootie flew into my studio (no, just kidding...he didn't fly...but that would be cool, wouldn't it?) all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, intent on proving to me that he would NOT fall asleep! But Superbaby, like most other babies (knock on wood...I'm very superstitious), finally caved into taking a trip to dreamland and I was able to capture some amazing shots of him!
Check out adorable baby Noah! Isn't he SO cute? Noah's parents are HUGE sports fans...can you tell from the pics?!? ;)
These little sweethearts (more twins!! I'm on a role!) were back and excited for their 3-year photo shoot...except they were slightly disappointed that I didn't bring along my daughter, who is their friend! I took T and Q's family photos a little less than a year ago and of course had a blast at both this shoot and the last! I've never met little girls with as much energy as these little Misses, so I figured the beach might be a fun place to get their energy out and sneak in some birthday and family photos! The girls had fun playing in the sand, riding on their scooters and taking photos with their Mommies. Here are a few of my faves! P.S. T and Q's Mommy, Ashleigh has a wonderful Mom blog that you should definitely check out!
A while back I ran a promo on newborn lifestyle sessions to build my portfolio. One of the lovely families that responded to my promo, was blessed with adorable (as in, too adorable for words) twins - a little boy and a little girl! Even their names, Leo and Olive, were too cute to handle! This was my first newborn twin shoot and to say that I was excited, is an extreme understatement! This family welcomed me into their home and I captured some wonderful shots of the babies, their big brother and the family! I seriously could have stayed there and photographed these babies all day, but I'm pretty sure the family would have kicked me out eventually ;)
I still have one spot available for a newborn lifestyle session if anyone out there is interested! Check out the details by clicking on the link above!
We've all heard people say that twins are double the trouble and double the fun! Although there may be some trouble (or "sibling love" as I like to think of it), it seems to me that twins are more fun than any amount of trouble! That must be why this family decided to go for baby #3 - triple the fun ;) This family was super duper friendly and a joy to photograph! The boys were definitely ready to welcome "baby brother" into the world at their Mommy's maternity session!
I haven't posted a blog entry in a while because I was waiting for this wonderful new Blogsite here to be completed. Now that it's complete, I have some blogging to get caught up on! And since this maternity session post is ever so slightly overdue, "baby brother" has now been born and I was thrilled to shoot his newborn session yesterday! Here's a sneak peak of "baby brother's" newborn session. Mom and Dad are overjoyed and taking their time to decide on the perfect name for their newest addition. I imagine it would be quite overwhelming with three little boys to look after!

I wrote this blog post for my Mommy blog, but feel that it applies over here on my photography blog as well! For all my clients who I give digital photos to, make sure you get them printed and print them somewhere that offers outstanding quality! It may be more expensive, but it's worth it - think about how much money you invested in your session and make sure that money doesn't go to waste! I always recommend MPix as the best consumer lab (i.e. a lab that you don't have to be a professional photographer to use) to get your photos printed.
Ok, I'll admit it - sweet baby Sarah made me want to have another baby...like NOW...as in today... ;) Since I have my hands pretty full already, I suppose I'll wait to pop out a third baby for the moment. And that is one of the many reasons why I love my job SO much!!!! I get to hang out with adorable babies and get my baby fix in :)
This little one definitely made me work for it, but once she settled down, she fell into a deep sleep and let me capture some adorable shots of her! Sarah reminded me a lot of my first baby, who was fussy for a good three hours at her newborn session and was also a little blonde "toe head". It's a good thing Sarah's parents were so fun to hang out with, because we definitely hung out together for quite some time! I think this session is one of my favorite newborn sessions to date! I am in love with some of the images I took of this little angel and can't wait to see sweet Sarah again soon!
