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.

Newborn Hannah | Whitby newborn photographer

Chris and Julia contacted me several weeks before their due date, they wanted to meet and chat about the possibility of booking a session together. I LOVE when this happens! I love meeting new parents-to-be and having them into my studio so we can chat. We can get to know each other a little, talk about newborn safety, I can explain what to expect during a newborn session, give a little tour of the studio, and show you all of the beautiful options for finished pieces of your own gorgeous images of your new little one.

Fast forward to mid May, and baby Hannah made her appearance! Just after a week later, Chris and Julia brought little Hannah into the studio for her photos. She was a dream to work with, she slept the entire time and made my job easy!

Here are just a few of my favourites from Hannah’s session with me, and I can’t wait for her album and circle float mount wall hanging to arrive!

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!

2017 Year in Review | Whitby Newborn & Family Photographer

I can’t believe we are down to just over 24 hours left to go in 2017. This year has flown by, but you know what they say, time flies when you’re having fun! 2017 has been a huge year of growth for me in my photography career. It started off with some excellent mentoring, that helped me refine my business processes and ultimately provide a higher level of service to my clients and for that I am so thankful!

Here are some of the highlights from the year for me:

  1. I earned my Qualified Newborn Photographer Certification through APNPI, as well as my Newborn Safety Education Course badge.
  2. Had 2 images place as Finalists in the Annual Shoot and Share contest.
  3. Nominated for the Durham Region, Oshawa/Whitby Reader’s Choice Best Photography Studio.
  4. Several images appeared in Social Media and website for brands such as Playtex Baby and Driscoll’s.
  5. Photographed over 65 families, and enjoyed meeting each and every one of them!
  6. Witnessed 6 couples tie the knot, while having the honour of capturing those special moments!

And here are some of the images of many of my wonderful clients from 2017. It was an amazing year and I thank all of my clients for choosing me to be your photographer. I look forward to what’s in store for 2018 and I can’t wait to capture all of those special moments for all of you! If you are an instagram person, you can also check out my “top nine” of 2017!

Baby Jordyn | Whitby Newborn Photography

Newborn Jordyn was just 11 days old when she came to my Whitby studio for her photoshoot. She brought her mom, dad, and big brother James along with her. James was clearly a proud big brother and was eager to have his photo take with his little sister! I had a lot of fun photographing this session, despite working with a knee injury from just the week prior! Both mom and dad were very laid back and it was a pleasure getting to know them during the photo session!

Jordyn was a little unsure if she enjoyed being wrapped or being set free more, but at the end of the day we got lots of gorgeous shots of this adorable little girl!

Baby Chloe | Whitby Newborn Photography

One of the things that I love about my job, other than the obvious snuggling and cuddling of newborns, is the people I get to meet! It’s especially fun when I get to meet friends of friends and friends of friends of friends. This session was both the result of the former, and resulted in the latter! Have I confused you yet? Anyways, it makes for a fun session, and I often feel like we too have become friends by the time we are finished our session together. And this one was no exception. Meet baby Chloe.
