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!!

Here are some of the products this family took home. I really need to start taking better product photos, but for now, here are some cell phone shots. I promise they look a million times better in person!

Katie’s Maternity Session | Whitby Maternity Photographer

Katie reached out to me about a month before her due date, inquiring about maternity and newborn photos. Katie is the Owner and Artistic Director at Katie’s Dance Connection in Oshawa, so she is one busy lady! I was thrilled to be able to get her in for her maternity photos around week 37, and prebook her in for newborn photos in August. Katie, her husband John, and their 3 year old son Jack, joined me at Heber Down in Whitby on a beautiful evening in July to spend some time together and capture this time in their lives before they welcome their little girl into the world.

Little Jack was excited to give some loving to his mom and hug his baby sister in her belly. He’s going to be such a  great big brother, I can tell! I can’t wait to have this whole family back into my studio next week for baby girl’s newborn photos!

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.

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!

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!

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!

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!
