Niagara ON Newborn Photographer | All Is Calm

niagara-on-newborn-photographer

During pregnancy and leading up to the birth of your child, your life is filled with excitement, preparation, planning, anxiousness, and usually anything but calm. For first time parents, these emotions can be magnified even more because every step of the journey is unknown.

All of these emotions build up to that moment when your new baby is placed in your arms and suddenly a peace and calm washes over you. In an instant your heart is full. You are no longer anxious or worried about planning. You are 100%, completely in love. You are whole.

Nicole and Blaine recently welcomed their first child into their lives. Finnigan is already the center of their whole world. He is a dream baby, and his sessions flowed perfectly. The calm Nicole and Blaine felt in those first moments carried over into Finnigan's newborn session. The session was filled with gentle and loving moments between the new family of three, and there were plenty of smiles by all three. May the calm continue through their first holiday season as a family of three.

Niagara ON Baby Photographer | The Story of Love

niagara-on-baby-photographer

The story of love is one with many different main characters, settings and languages. But the central theme in every variation is love, sweet love. Each version is filled with laughter and smiles, kisses and snuggles. It is the story that warms your heart and touches your soul.  

This family is so full of love for one another. Jen and Darryl introduced beautiful baby Leah into their love story about 9 months ago. I was honoured to document their anxious wait for her during their maternity session. I was also able to capture all the feelings of a love so new when Leah was a newborn. They came back to the Reflections of Life studio to record the next chapter. The chapter where Leah still needs her mama and daddy to help her stand and to take those wobbly steps. In the blink of an eye she will be off. But for now, in this moment, Leah is her parents' baby in every sense of the word.

Leah is reserved, watching everything that is going on around her. She was interested in just what was going on with the woman behind the camera. Leah loves her parents deeply, and it is a love that is mutual. I look forward to documenting upcoming chapters in this lovely family's story of love.

Niagara ON Family Photographer | Together

niagara-on-family-photographer

There are so many reasons why I love photographing families. Togetherness is one of them. Families go through life together. The ups, the downs, the in betweens. Families help one another together. Families love each other, together. Families spend time together. 

At Reflections of Life, family sessions are about being together. They are about spending time together and creating memories. Together as a family, you grow taller, wiser, and older through the years. It is my privilege and honour to preserve your time together, year after year. My hope is that you will enjoy the images together for a lifetime.

This family is wonderful together. I have been lucky enough to get to know Titus and Joyce along with their three children, Jesse, Bradyn and Brooklyn through church. Together we did a family session last year, and I was thrilled to carry the tradition into this year. The children have grown a inches in height.

Jesse, the eldest, is independent and energetic.  He's always thinking of what he can do next.  Bradyn is funny and was able to bring out natural smiles from his family members. Brooklyn, the youngest and only girl, has a contagious smile, the sweetest voice you could imagine, and dances wherever she goes. Together, Titus, Joyce, Jesse, Bradyn and Brooklyn laughed and loved, and had a beautiful family session filled with a little chaos and a lot of memories.

Grimsby Newborn Photographer | In Daddy's Arms

grimsby-newborn-photographer

There is nothing that makes a newborn baby look smaller than being cradled in her daddy's arms. In daddy's arms, she is protected and safe. 

Darling Hannah recently came to the Reflections of Life studio for her newborn session. Her parents, Leslie and Jeff, are so ecstatic to have her in their arms. Throughout the session, Jeff could not stop beaming over his baby girl. He is so happy, proud and completely in love with his newborn daughter. He was at ease in front of the camera. In fact, I think he forgot it was there as he just held his daughter, loved her, and marveled at her. Beautiful memories and images were created as Jeff and Hannah enjoyed each other's company. Of course, the beautiful mama, Leslie is equally in love with their miracle. This family of three shares such a deep connection and love already.

Niagara Region Baby Photographer | MAMA and Me

niagara-region-baby-photographer

If you are a mama, you understand. You understand the pure, fierce, undying love for your children. If you are not yet a mother, I promise you this, the moment you hold your precious baby in your arms for the first time, you will understand. One of my greatest joys as a photographer is capturing the love between a mama and her babies. My hope for every mother is that she at least once has the chance to do a portrait session with her babies, no matter their age. They are images that will be forever cherished by not only you but your children.

As mothers, we do not always get to see the love between ourselves and our children. We feel the embrace, their little hands on either side of our face as they go in for a kiss. We feel the connection with every piece of our heart. But we do not get to see the look of content and peace in our children as they rest their head upon our chest. We do not get to see how beautiful we are as we hold our babies close and soak in the feeling.

A mama and baby session is the perfect way to capture the love and connection. Time spent bonding and playing with your child, making them comfortable in a new surrounding and just loving one another. Sabrina and Venus spent their session enjoying the one on one time together. Venus absolutely adores her beautiful mother, and quickly became acclimated with her new surroundings. She enjoyed the rocks and water, and taking in all the new sights. Venus is gorgeous like her mama with captivating big, blue eyes. Capturing Sabrina and Venus' connection and love was an absolute joy.  A big thank you to the Happy Baby Shop for sponsoring the gift of this session.

And their super cute short film is below. I just love the movement and connection between mama and baby in this video. Little Venus was quite shy in the beginning, but by the end of our session together she was having such a wonderful time. Truly a remarkable little person.

Niagara ON Family Photographer | Squeeze

niagara-on-family-photographer

Squeeze. We squeeze our ways through life constantly. Squeezing in last minute appointments, squeezing through a closing elevator door, squeezing the ones you love. The squeeze of a hand is a silent "I love you" to the one who's hand is in yours. The squeeze of a shoulder tells the person, "I am right here by your side." The squeeze of an embrace brings instant comfort.

I was able to squeeze this beautiful family in for a last minute family session. Dad, Jason, requested having water in the images. Mom, Renee, left the vision up to me as long as the images reflected to love in her family. Without prompting, Renee hugged and held her children, Nate and Grace. Nate and Grace, despite being 12 and 10, happily received and returned each embrace, making it obvious that this is a family full of squeezes. Renee is at her most beautiful when she is embracing the ones she loves the most.

This family was a joy to photograph. There is so much love for one another, including their adorable pups. The connection between them was so natural, making my job a breeze. I am so thrilled with how their gallery turned out, and I hope to see them again in the future.

Niagara Baby Photographer | In Your Daughter's Eyes

niagara-baby-photographer

In your daughter's eyes, you are beautiful. You are strong. You are a hero. You are her mama. There is no one else that your little one wants to look at, to interact with, than her mama. The smile of her mama brings your baby happiness and joy. When you smile, she smiles because it is you she wants to mirror. 

In your daughter's eyes, you are who she will look up to. There may be times in life when she does not want you to know, but she is always watching you. You are her role model, her confidante. Her shoulder to cry on and her biggest cheerleader. And someday, you will be her inspiration as she embarks on her own journey of motherhood.

As mothers, we need to put aside our own insecurities. We need to be confident in ourselves and let ourselves feel as beautiful as we are to our babies. We need to get in more pictures so we can preserve more memories for our little ones to look back on. Because in our daughters' eyes, we are perfect.

Sweet Kaia loves her mama, that is for sure. She loves looking in her mama's eyes, and watching her every move. Kaia has the most beautiful smile when she is smiling at her mama. Photographing mamas with their babies is one of the greatest joys of this job. There is nothing like the love between a mother and her babies. It is the purest and most beautiful of all the loves.

And of course I had to show you Kaia's little short film:

Niagara Region Family Photographer | Sands of Time

niagara-region-family-photographer

Like a never ending hour glass, life is constantly moving. Each moment building onto the next, creating the memories of our lives. At times, life seems to move so fast. School, work, schedules filled with so many things that it can be hard to keep track of it all. Moments spent as a family, just enjoying one another's company without anywhere else to be.    

Erin, Adam, Millicent and Marigold joined me for a beach family session recently so that we could make time stand still if even for an instant. This family is filled with so much love for one another, making documenting it easy. Together they laughed, loved, played games, twirled, collected sand and simply enjoyed one another's company as they explored the beach. All of the things a successful family session should be made up of. 

While you may never be able to stop the sands of time, you can preserve the connections, the love and the moments for all of time. I am honoured this family entrusted me to be their family photographer.

Niagara ON Baby Photographer | Baby Love

niagara-on-baby-photographer

Days with a baby in the house are some of the best of days. The nights are long but the days are filled with giggles, smiles and lots of love. Every day is a day filled with wonder, new sights to see and new skills to master.

Babies have a way of bringing simplicity back to life. A wooden block brings so much joy and entertainment to little hands. A smile is met with a gum-filled smile back. And the amount of love shared is endless. Life is better with a baby in the house.

This family is a favourite of mine. I photographed big brother Gray as a newborn and baby, then mama while pregnant and Willow as a newborn. I was thrilled to hear the family was growing by one, and that I would have the honour of photographing the family once more. Willow is a model baby with full cheeks, bright eyes and a peach fuzz covered head. Willow's baby session was filled with all the best things of a baby love. I cannot wait to see this family again soon, and to capture more sweet memories of their life!

And Willow & Gray's cute little short film:

Grimsby Family Photographer | Looking Up

grimsby-family-photographer

When you have a big brother, you spend a lot of time looking up. After all, for a long time he towers over your. Especially when he is five years older than you. But even at 1 year of age, Weston already looks up to his brother Anderson far beyond the literal sense. Weston is interested in everything that Anderson does. Anderson throws rocks into Lake Ontario, Weston wants to try. The wonder that filled Weston's face as he did just that was so fun to see. As if he realized that he can do what Anderson does. 

Perhaps even more amazing to witness is Anderson's love and patience towards his baby brother. He wants to help and show Weston new things. Anderson is a delightful little boy who is very in tune with the people around him. He is kind and empathetic. He cares deeply about others. He is just the kind of boy that you would want a younger brother to look up to throughout life.

While time will tell whether Weston will always literally look up to his older brother Anderson, one thing is certain. Weston will always have a role model, confidante and friend in Anderson. I can only imagine the comfort and joy that brings to their parents Stacy and Clint. I look forward to seeing these boys grow up together through the years.

Niagara Region Newborn Photographer | The Best Medicine

niagara-region-newborn-photographer

There are a lot of different ideas of what things are the best medicine. "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." "Laughter is the best medicine." Water, sleep, wholesome foods. All are strong contenders in the race for the "best" medicine. Of course, it depends a lot on what you are trying to treat. But I think that the best medicine for a happy, full life is love. And a lot of it.

The love of a family. The love of a newborn. The love of a son. The love of a daughter. The love of a husband. The love of a father. The love of a wife. The love of a mother. The loves of life. It really does not get much better than this right here, this moment of love and joy. And I am fortunate enough to be able to devote my life's work to capturing these loves, these moments, for my clients.

Jen and Mark are now the proud parents of two incredible children. Eleanor Maria has joined her big brother, Sidney. They are a wonderfully kind, gentle and loving family. Jen and Mark have so much love to share, and have instilled those same values in Sidney. Sidney was so sweet and loving with his new baby sister. I am so happy to see their family grow in number and love.

Grimsby Family Photographer | The Laughter that Binds Us

grimsby-family-photographer

The family who laughs together, loves together. With laughter comes love and with love comes laughter. I want to capture your family full of laughter and love. Real moments and connections are what I want you to see when you look back at your images over the years.

This wonderful family is one that I have been friends with, and photographing, for years. Jody and Dan have done an amazing job raising three wonderful children. Their son, Taylor, is 16 now and has just started driving. He is a great big brother and role model to his two younger sisters, Rachel and Brooke. Of course Rachel and Brooke adore their big brother, and they're also the best of friends. I can tell they'll always be close.  One thing the entire family has in common is an infectious love of life and laughter.

I love looking back through their galleries and seeing how much their children have grown and changed over the years.  I am so thankful that this family, these friends, traveled in from Cambridge, Ontario and invited me in to capture the laughter that binds them.

Niagara ON Baby Photographer | Firsts

niagara-on-baby-photographer

Your baby's first year is filled with firsts. The firsts of every holiday. The first smile, first rollover, first crawl, first foods, first steps. Each milestone reached fills your heart with pride, joy and a little sadness. For with every passing milestone, your baby is a little closer to growing up. And with that first birthday celebration, many parents feel that it is the end of the "firsts" era. But I promise you, it is really just the beginning. There are so many firsts ahead of you. Some will make you laugh. Some will make you cry. And some will make you laugh so hard you cry.

Carrigan recently turned one, and came to the Reflections of Life studio to celebrate. Like many one year olds, it took Carrigan a little bit to warm up to me. She is calm and reserved, and studies her surroundings intently. The results are captivating images of Carrigan as she is right now, at one.

I cannot wait to see Carrigan and her family again. To hear about her milestones and firsts going forward because there are so many wonderful times and accomplishments to be reached as this little one continues to grow. 

And here's a completely adorable video of little Carrigan's cupcake adventure.

Niagara ON Family Photographer | The Art of Love

niagara-on-family-photographer

There are many kinds of love. The love between husband and wife, mother and son, father and son, brothers. The love between a family when they are together as one. Each love is beautiful and special in its own way. The different dynamics and relationships in a family are what makes it yours.  

Family sessions are perfect for capturing all the different loves in your family. Over the years, the loves grow and change. Remember and preserve each stage through annual family sessions. Looking through those memories will transport you back to those days in an instant.

This is my makeup artist, Christine's beautiful family. At 6 and 4 years of age, Tyson and Luca are full of energy and the best kind of snuggles. They love each other and their parents fiercely. We filled the session with different kinds of games to keep the boys engaged and having fun. Doing so let's the whole family forget that the camera is there so that I can capture them having fun as a family. Natural connections come easy when a family is just being a family. And that is the art of love.

It was a privilege to be able to capture the beautiful loves in Christine and Josh's family. They made my job easy, and I am so happy with their gallery. It is filled with smiles and laughter, tickles and cuddles. It is filled with love. Thank you for entrusting me to capture all of your love!

Niagara ON Newborn Photographer | Little Sister

niagara-on-newborn-photographer

A little sister to love and protect. A little sister to teach and to encourage. A little sister to play and explore with. A little sister to cherish.

This big brother was so proud of his new little sister. He was kind and gentle throughout the whole session. He watched over her during the session to make sure she was safe, and even informed me that she cannot have LEGOS to play with until she is much older. It was wonderful to see a child care so much for his new sibling, and to be so attentive to her needs. Their beautiful friendship will only grow from here, and this gorgeous baby girl has a lifelong friend in her big brother. And from the looks of her smile, she is pretty thrilled about it!

Grimsby Newborn Photographer | The Next Chapter

grimsby-newborn-photographer

A photographer is a storyteller. Instead of words, we use images to tell our story. Wedding photographers tell the story of a grande and spectacular day, and the love story of two. Family photographers tell the continuing love story of life and family. One of an unknown number of people when the story begins.

This is Matthew. He is the focus of the next chapter in his family's love story. I photographed his sister, Katie, as a newborn in 2013. In 2014, his big brother William made his appearance and I did his newborn session as well. 

Matthew is already the type of person who never wants to miss a thing. At the start of the session, he was awake and very alert. I love it when newborns are awake but calm enough to put down to get some beautiful awake images. The hope is to also get some images of baby sleeping but Matthew had other plans. Matthew loved attention, and wanted to make sure he did not miss a thing! His curiosity about the big, new world around him was wonderful to witness.

I look forward to watching this family's love story continue, and welcome them back at any time to record the next chapters through images of love and life.

Niagara Region Newborn Photographer | In Black and White

niagara-region-newborn-photographer

Black and white. It is simple and timeless. Black and white allows the viewer to see every detail and feel every emotion. Newborns were made for black and white. The simply beautiful details of a newborn baby are perfect in black and white. The truest love of all between a mother and her new baby. The pride of a father as he looks down at his newborn. In black and white, the focus is on these connections.

My galleries typically include a color and black and white version of each image. For this post, I am only sharing the black and white versions. My hope is that after viewing the images from Declan's gallery that you feel as though you have held Declan in your arms and studied his handsome face, and that you can feel the intense love his parents have for him.

Declan has picked the most wonderful parents. I was lucky enough to photograph the wedding reception of his parents, Stephanie and Eric, two years ago. I am so excited for them as they embark on the next chapter of their love story. During their viewing session, Stephanie teared up looking at the images of her perfect newborn baby boy. They ordered the image above as an enlargement to display in their home.

Niagara ON Newborn Photographer | Just Smile

niagara-on-newborn-photographer

A fresh, brand new baby has a way of making us smile. Holding a newborn cures the blues and washes away any worry. Newborns are reminders of all that is right and innocent in this crazy world. Completely perfect and each a living miracle we can actually hold in our arms. 

When a newborn flashes a sweet, sleepy smile, it creates an instant reaction. One of surprise. One of awe. Or one of giddiness. And it always creates a mirror image on every face that sees it. 

Darling baby Olivia was filled with sweet baby smiles. I was lucky enough to not only witness them but to preserve them forever. Her parents will be able to look back at them as she starts kindergarten, becomes a teenager, graduates high school, gets married, and just smile. Smile at the memories of their tiny, brand new baby and smile at the bright future ahead of her.

Olivia was a part of the Reflections of Life's program, A Star is Born. Partnering with West Lincoln Memorial Hospital, a portion of every A Star is Born session goes towards the current equipment needs of the hospital. To learn more about the program, click here

Niagara ON Newborn Photographer | Connections

Niagara-ON-newborn-photographer+(19).jpg

Life is a series of connections. Some connections take time to build and strengthen. Others are solidified in an instant. When a new baby arrives, those instant connections are overwhelming. A fresh life has the innate ability to connect with each new person he meets. His mama and daddy, of course. That bond was already being developed before he was born. Grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and family friends come to meet the new love and instantly form their own special connection.

One of the most special connections a newborn makes is with his older sibling. It is a connection created in that first moment of meeting that lasts a lifetime. A brother, a best friend, a confidante, a motivator and a playmate. Together they can do and be anything.

I photographed big brother Giovanni as a newborn. I was so excited to see his connection with his new baby brother, Santino. Brothers. A connection already filled with so much energy and love. A connection that will grow deeper and stronger with every passing day. It is an honour and a privilege to be able to capture these moments for this family and for these brothers.

Niagara Region Newborn Photographer | Through Their Eyes

niagara region newborn photographer

As parents, we are blessed to be able to see the world through the eyes of a child again. Every age and every stage brings a whole new way that our children look at the world around them. There is beauty and wonder all around us, and children have the wonderful ability to see it all.  

I have had the great privilege of photographing this family for six years. I have watched them grow in size and numbers. Each baby welcomed has filled one more piece of their family puzzle. Their newest love is Paisley. Her big brothers, Carter and Wyatt, and big sister, Jordan, are happy to give their Paisley lots of love. The big kids were wonderful and fun, and we were able to quickly get beautiful images with all four of them. The rest of the session was focused on beautiful Paisley. Every detail, every angle. We finished the session with some special moments with just mama and her newest babe.

Alicia and Travis have the best view of this beautiful, crazy life as they watch it through the eyes of Carter, Jordan, Wyatt and Paisley. And I am the lucky one to get to capture the beauty and wonder of this beautiful new family of six!
