Baby Penelope | Newborn Session

Documenting genuine and heart felt moments between a baby and their new world is something I absolutely love. The fuzzy booties, knit sweaters, and scarf swaddle are immediate give aways that this newborn session was photographed earlier this year in the midst of winter. Baby Penelope’s session was extra special with the addition of her two siblings making an appearance throughout the day. Her brother and sister ensured there was no shortage of excitement, laughter and fun! Penelope was a natural in front of the camera, flashing her adorable smile countless times- take a look! 

Baby Jonathan | Newborn Session

When my cousin delivered her precious baby boy this past December my first question was: “How are you feeling?” My second question followed soon after: “When am I coming over to take newborn photos?” Her answer being something along the lines of, "As soon as freaking possible!" 

One short week later I found myself staring intently into the wide eyes of precious baby Jonathan. All that kept racing through my mind were thoughts of how fragile and perfect he was in every way, however I am almost positive he was looking back at me thinking to himself "Who the heck are you, and why in the world do you keep putting this camera in my face while I am trying to sleep?" Fair enough - haha.

I had such a wonderful time visiting little Jonathan, and absolutely loved being a part of his first ever professional photo shoot! 

Baby Levi | Newborn Session

From the moment I entered baby Levi's home I knew this newborn session was going to be a hit! Upon my arrival I was instantly greeted at the door by Toby, an adorable goldendoodle who could not contain his excitement at the prospect of a new friend (full disclosure: I am undeniably obsessed with goldendoodles... so much so that when I saw this puppy my face looked strikingly similar to the heart eyed emoji). 

After handsome little Levi changed into a cozy outfit we all (Toby in tow) retreated to the nursery to photograph this precious new baby in his stunning nursery. I say stunning because this gender neutral, cream and metallic toned room looked like something that easily could have come straight out of a magazine or from a Pinterest board!

From checking out his surroundings while laying in his crib, to dozing off on his fathers shoulder Levi was a perfect model the entire time. My heart was full after photographing this new family. Take a moment to check out a few of my favourites from Levi's newborn session!

Quinn & Bryan | Portrait Session

Though it has been months since I photographed these two, I just had to highlight this session on the blog as it turned out to be one of my absolute favourites from this past summer!

I loved how both Quinn and Bryan were up for anything during their session. All ideas and suggestions were met with such positivity and excitement. Loading the tandem bicycle into the car was an adventure in itself. Once secured inside the car the position of the bicycle squished Quinn against the passenger seat with minimal-to-no movement possible, while Bryan was stuck sitting in the trunk (this sounds far more unsafe than it actually was - I promise!). Regardless of how uncomfortable they must have been, both Bryan and Quinn were so enthusiastic and entertaining throughout the entire ride to our location.

On top of their calm and positive demeanour, they were not afraid to be silly with one another - which is what made this session so genuine, light-hearted and romantic. Blowing bubbles while giggling together and cycling down the Hamilton Beach Strip on a tandem bicycle it was as if they were back on their first date.

Enjoy some of my favourite images from my time with them!

Karlee & Adam | Portrait Session

Karlee and Adam... Adam and Karlee, never have I known a time where there was one without the other. I can guarantee that should you ask their family and friends, they will all tell you the same thing. 

It really has been incredible to watch their love grow over the years. Throughout this time I have gone from listening to Karlee gossip at cheerleading practices about her latest date with Adam, to now listening to her hopes and dreams of an engagement and that next step (no pressure Adam).

Along the way I have photographed this adorable couple multiple times. This time we opted to take advantage of the gorgeous fall foliage and it certainly paid off! I will continue to anxiously await news of an engagement, until then enjoy some of my favourites from Karlee and Adam's beautiful fall portrait session!
