Carolynne & Ryan’s Maternity Session | Whitby Maternity Photographer

When Carolynne first reached out to inquire about maternity and newborn photos, she mentioned Starbucks in her email. I knew at that moment, we were destined to work together! I met Carolynne and Ryan at Heber Down, in North Whitby on a chilly February afternoon. We started with a series of photos in cozy winter clothes, and then Carolynne changed outfits and we took some stunning portraits of her in an amazing red gown by Amy Corneau. I’m in love with what we captured that day. I don’t often get couples willing to brave the cold, but the results are always so beautiful! Now, we patiently wait for little babe’s arrival!

The Second Shoot

After our session was done, and the photos had been revealed, I asked Carolynne if she could join me in my studio. I was hoping for a short session together so I could capture some images I needed for an upcoming event. So, we got together the following week and created some in-studio portraits as well. We worked with 2 outfits from my studio collection, and 2 different looks. I’m also equally in love with these photos!

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, “I would show her the album and she would be sold!” Albums are my most favourite product to create with a client so I especially loved this answer!

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 Tree Farm Holiday Sessions | Whitby Family Photographer

My 2nd Annual family tree farm photo sessions are my favourite day of the year! I have so much fun photographing so many families, meeting new people and welcoming back returning clients and friends from Whitby, and all over the Greater Toronto Area! I am also so lucky to have such an amazing friend who lets me use his vintage truck out at the tree farm, which makes for some amazing photos! Kids love it, parents love it, and I love it!!

This year’s tree farm sessions were a little colder than last year, but everyone was having so much fun we hardly noticed, right?? We didn’t get snow, but we did get a great day to cozy up with your family! This year I was also thrilled when we showed up to the farm and they had this awesome wood pile that we were able to use as a third setting for some photos. It was beautiful!

My only regret each year is that I can only do these sessions for 1 day, and they sell out in early September. My heart breaks every year when I have so many people asking to get in and book one of these sessions, but I just can’t fit any more in. SO….next year, I’m going to see what I can do about that! Fingers crossed, I’m hoping to open up at least 2 days for 2018. Watch for booking info to come out in August!

Here are just a few (there’s way to many great ones to show them all!) of my favourite photos from my family Tree Farm Sessions!
