Maternity + Newborn Shoot // Baby Logan

Maternity-Shoot-Brooklin-Whitby-2Maternity-Shoot-Brooklin-Whitby-3 One of the many reasons I love shooting a maternity to newborn session, is to see the change in a growing family. I love capturing the excitement for the arrival of a new baby and the beauty of pregnancy. Not all women feel their best when they are pregnant, heck not many of us do! But I can’t tell you how important it is to capture those moments. I guarantee you will be happy you did. Maternity-Shoot-Brooklin-Whitby-5

They had beautiful natural light streaming through their bedroom (which I love). Photographing families in their home can be so much fun. Not only is it different from the studio shots, but you get to see people in their natural element. This is often best when photographing children. They feel more comfortable, they can be themselves and they have all their toys at home! =) Makes a huge difference. Don’t get me wrong, the studio shots are great, but I love at home shots the most!Newborn-shoot-Brooklin-Whitby-69Newborn-shoot-Brooklin-Whitby-78Newborn-shoot-Brooklin-Whitby-82This is one of my favourite shots of the new baby, Logan! He had a head full of dark, fuzzy hair! Soooo cute! He kept giving me those little looks, what a little heartbreaker. Avery, the eldest was so sweet with Logan. Like always, she worked the camera! 😉 Thanks for inviting me into your home, to capture these beautiful memories of your family. xoNewborn-shoot-Brooklin-Whitby-97Newborn-shoot-Brooklin-Whitby-101

Georgian Bay Lakeside Wedding // Katie + Chris ♥

I had the pleasure of shooting my friends Katie and Chris’ wedding a few weeks ago. The ceremony took place on the picturesque beaches of Georgian Bay, with the mountains and lake as our backdrop. The wedding came to be with only a few months of planning! Katie and Chris used their mad talent to design their own unique stationery and personalized every little bit of the wedding. You know I love good branding! With the love, help and generosity from friends and family, the Sweatman wedding was a perfect day.

Katie and Chris were so very fortunate to have friends offer their cottage, to host the event. And a lovely cottage it was! The location was the perfect spot for two very outdoorsy people, who met on the hills of Georgian Peaks (the very hills that were our backdrop). The wedding was simply elegant, natural, serene, beachy and most importantly full of love! Did I mention laughter? I don’t think I have ever met two more hilarious people than Katie and Chris. You can tell from the photos that their amazing personalities shine right through.

Thank you so much Katie and Chris for letting me photograph your special day and making me laugh and cry.

Baby Dylan’s Newborn Photoshoot

I have so much love for this adorable family. Rachel and Daniela have been coming to me for their family photos, for the past few years and I love getting to watch their little one Carter grow up. He’s such a handsome little guy and now they have a lovely little girl!

Dylan was such a sweetheart! Another six pounder and totally alert. She started to nod off towards the end of her shoot. She had the cutest little wrinkles in her forehead and her eyes were so pretty, just like Carters.

Congrats Daniela and Rachel, can’t wait to watch your new addition grow up!

Baby Ellie’s Newborn Photoshoot

I was so lucky to be asked to shoot baby Ellie’s newborn pics. A little 6lb bundle of joy, Ellie was determined to stay awake and not miss a thing! I like to call this F.O.M.O. aka Fear Of Missing Out. lol I know a lot of babies like this….my son for example.

Ellie was such a sweetheart, just like her mom and boy does she ever look like her. I’m so excited for mom and dad on their first baby. Congrats!

Welcome Baby DAYCEN!

Daycen-newborn-announcementThis post has been a long time coming. I had a baby boy almost 6 weeks ago!

My life has completely changed and I am learning to adjust, hence the really late birth announcement! ha

I couldn’t be more happy with this little guy. He is everything to me. It’s crazy how much you can love someone in such a short amount of time. I constantly stare at him to make sure that he’s real! It still shocks me that he is mine. He looks so much like his father too. I don’t see a lot of me in him yet, but I’m sure that will change.

The love I have for my husband has grown ten fold. It’s amazing to see him turn into a daddy and kiss Daycens little head everyday. It really is the most beautiful thing to watch. He’s been such a great help and such an understanding husband. Believe me, there have been some struggles adjusting to no sleep and 14 diaper changes a day! I am not exaggerating. I envy those of you that have babies that will sleep for 3 hours straight. None of that for me….yet.

I just wanted to share some cute shots I took of him at one week old. It’s funny actually, after all the newborn photoshoots I’ve done, photographing my son was the most difficult! He was way more fussy than any other baby I’ve photographed and he just hated being put down. I know….he’s such a mommas boy. : / Scared face. All in all, I still got some cute pics when he settled down.

I am looking forward to watching this little boy grow and get a personality. So very, very thankful for this precious gift. =)2014-Newborn-Daycen-8 2014-Newborn-Daycen-11 2014-Newborn-Daycen-16

Everley’s 1st Birthday // Cake Smash Photoshoot

Cake-Smash-Everley-19One of my favourite parts of my job, is photographing newborns and children. I get to see a lot of my clients babies grow into beautiful little humans. This cake smash shoot was of the lovely, little Everley. I was fortunate enough to get to photograph Everley when she was a newborn and take her portraits of her first Christmas. Now she is 1 years old! Time sure does fly by. I can’t wait to watch this one grow into a beautiful big girl. Happy Birthday Everley!
