Baby Jayden | Whitby Newborn Photography

This little peanut’s momma and daddy came in to meet with me before booking their session. I love when that happens! We talked about being pregnant, timeless photos, keeping it simple, newborn safety as it pertains to photography, and as I always do, I got to reminisce about when I was pregnant with my son, planning for his upcoming arrival. I love it! If you’ve had a newborn session with me, you know how I get! I’m about one step away from busting out in song, “It’s so haaaard, to say gooodbyyyye to yesterday.” šŸ™‚

Little Jayden arrived just after Christmas day, and I had him in for his session just after the holidays. Here he is at just 10 day’s old, with the most devine cheeks and chunky rolls! What a gorgeous family these 3 make!

Newborn Baby Oliver | Durham Region Newborn Photographer

Newborn baby Oliver came to me at just 13 days old. We spent a great 3 hour session together, working through Oliver’s needs for food, cuddles, and snuggles, to capture these adorable images from his first few days of life. I really love simple and timeless colours, so I was very happy when mom chose cream as the main colour to use in the session. I mixed in some grey, navy and woods, and it all came together handsomely! Here are a few of my favourites from baby Oliver’s session!

Newborn | Whitby Newborn Photographer

I am so behind on my blogging, this newborn session is from September! But it’s never too late to share such beautiful images! Mom had contacted me in August to book for September, which is always a good idea to do. Twelve days after she entered the world, this precious little babe came into the studio with mom, dad and big sister. She was so sweet and loved her paci soooo much haha! We got these adorable, timeless images for this family to cherish forever. Together we created a beautiful album for them to keep these memories close for years to come, and show to all of their friends and family. Here are just a few of the images that made this little ones album complete!

After someone completes a full session with me and their images and products have been delivered, I send out a post-session questionnaire to get some feedback on our session together. One of the questions I ask is If you were recommending me to your best friend, what would you say?” Mom’s answer was so kind, it made me smile,Ā “I would show her the album and she would be sold!”Ā Albums are my most favourite product to create with a client so I especially loved this answer!

Baby Brynn | Whitby Newborn Photographer

You might remember this beautiful family from a blog post I did back in August, when they were expecting little newborn Brynn, very soon. If not, check out their maternity photos on this blog post. Their baby girl made her appearance in August, and she came in to my studio at just 10 days new for her photo session. Big brother, Jack, was so proud of his new baby sister and loved giving her some snuggles for the camera! We used lots of pinks, greys and complimentary colours for this session to go with baby Brynn’s nursery. Her heirloom album even matches the nursery! Along with her album, mom selected a float mount cluster, a framed family photo in one of my wood signature frames, and some custom birth announcements to send out to all of her friends and family! She definitely picked all of my favourite products!!

Baby Nicole | Whitby Newborn Photographer

Newborn Nicole was just the sweetest! She slept, she snuggled, she curled up, and she was just adorable with the little curls in her hair and her chubby little cheeks. Nicole is Ola and Andrew’s second child, a baby sister for big brother. They were in town for only a short period of time when they contacted me, so I brought them into the studio as soon as possible, and we took Nicole’s photos at 9 days old, and just a couple weeks later they were back off to their home overseas. I’m sure Nicole took all that travel like a champ! It was such a pleasure meeting this family!

I also got an amazing float mount cluster printed from this session for my studio. You can see a snap of what that looks like at the end of this post!

Baby Mason | Whitby Newborn Photographer

I first introduced you to Christine and Raj a few months ago when I did their maternity photos. We had a fantastic in-home maternity session together, creating some of my favourite timeless maternity images. Fast forward a couple of months, and baby Mason was welcomed into the world 2 weeks past his due date, in May. (Yes, I’m a little late sharing his photos). This little man stole my heart from the minute he was carried into my studio, with his chubby cheeks, and the way he would look at me like he was looking right into my eyes, which is not super common in a newborn. We captured a great mix of sleep and awake photos, he was pretty content either way! Also not always so common for a newborn!

Here are a few of my favourites from baby Mason’s newborn shoot.

Christine & Raj | Whitby Maternity Photographer

Christine and Raj are expecting their first baby and wanted to have maternity photos taken. In fact, I’m waiting for their call any day now to say babe has arrived! Last month we got together to take their maternity photos. The weather was still questionable in Whitby, and it was very important to Christine to include her 3 little, and adorable, dogs so we decided on an in-home session. I love in home maternity sessions. They are generally laid back, comfortable, and a great way to show the some of the details, like the nursery, while waiting for baby. When I come into your home for a session, I spend a bit of time finding a couple of the best spots in the house to use, that have the best lighting, and we do a mix of posed and more relaxed interactions, with less posing. It’s a great option, especially for expecting mommas!

Baby Liam | Whitby Newborn Photographer

I have had the pleasure of photographing Ryan and Darlene’s (large) extended family, engagement photos, wedding day, maternity photos, and most recently, their first born son, Liam. When I see them now, I feel like old friends, even though all of this has happened in under 3 years!

Little Liam entered the world a few days before his EDD, on Dec. 12, and came in for his session just before Christmas at just 9 days old. It was cold outside, but toasty warm in the studio, so Liam slept through most of his session! And of course we had to do one little nod to the holiday season with a little reindeer hat!

Here are just a few of my favourites from Liam’s session!

Brooke’s Baby Milestone Session | Whitby Photographer

Somehow I missed blogging this session! And it’s one of my favourite studio sessions from recent months! I had welcomed little Brooke and her family to my Tree Farm Christmas Sessions back in November, so I was thrilled when her mom contacted me to do some portraits of Brooke to document her 6 month milestone. Brooke was sitting up proud and full of expression, it was a lot of fun capturing these moments!

We chose some simple set ups and Brooke’s mom brought a couple of outfits, but we kept it simple to keep the focus on Brooke. Here are just a few of the shots we captured that day!
