Fresh 48: Sullivan

Last month baby Sullivan made an early arrival into this world and I got to take in all of his newborn goodness. At just a few hours old, he was showered with love and adoration by his beautiful parents and I got to snap a few photos of his perfect little features.

Every so often I offer Fresh 48 sessions to my clients because they are just good for my soul. It is amazing to see new parents navigate their emerging roles, meet the tiniest babes & address that forever baby fever.

Sullivan, I cannot wait for our in home lifestyle newborn session. Even though I don’t know how it’s possible… I’m pretty sure you’re getting cuter by the day!

Newborn: Tredget Family

Henry-8

This little squish is named Henry and is the newest addition to the Tredget family. He was absolutely perfect during our lifestyle newborn shoot and snoozed the entire time (although I will admit that Dad is the ultimate baby whisperer). Finn has very naturally assumed his big brother role and is already so kind, gentle and protective over little Henry. Thanks again for choosing me to capture these beautiful moments in your lives. I am always so thankful and appreciative when families invite me into their homes to do what I love!

Quinn-30

A couple of months ago, Amanda & Pat welcomed their beautiful daughter into this world. I was so grateful to be invited into their home, meet their adorable new squish and to capture some precious moments for them. Both being animal lovers their only request was to get some photos with their three pups. I was super impressed by how well-behaved and gentle the pups were with Quinn! She sure is one lucky girl. Here are a few of my favs..

Newborn: Olivieri Family

Olivieri-16

This session was a natural light photographer’s DREAM.

The location, the lighting and the happiness & love that filled the home… It was all perfect. And not only did it include a childhood friend but her wonderful husband and their two adorable little girls who reminded me so much of my own. In fact, when I got Craig to lay a “fresh set of eyes” on my edits, he had to do a double take because Amelie looked so much like Brynlee.

Take a peek.

Newborn: The MacKinnons

MacKinnon-21

I met this beautiful family a couple of years ago for a mini session & just before Christmas I got to meet this adorable little peanut! Baby Olive is 9 lbs of pure perfection and is already totally adored by her big sister. I think it’s safe to say that they are all settling into being a family of 4 quite nicely.

I can’t wait to run into the ‘MacKinnon sisters’ at the playground this summer! They are beautiful – here are a couple favourites

Newborn: Meidinger Family

Ophelia-1

I consider myself truly lucky to have this photography gig. It allows me to stay home with my girls, make my own schedule & hours, meet new people, contribute to my family’s income and most importantly it allows me to do something I love. However, I can’t have done it without the help and support of all my wonderful friends and family.

Thank you to all of you who have booked me for sessions, shared my posts, referred me to friends, credited my photos, etc… Thank you for believing in me and trusting me to capture your family’s fleeting moments that you may have otherwise forgotten. I shoot from the heart and take these photos as much for me as I do for you & your family. I love to capture the raw, the emotion and connection… I love feeling all the feels.

So this is the perfect session to follow that up with. This brand new family of 3 is a beautiful example of why I love doing what I do. Give me all the baby snuggles, mom & babe hanging in the nursery or a little skin to skin with dad.

I love watching friends become parents and seeing them care for and nurture this new little stranger that the nurses and doctors have let them take home from the hospital. It just warms my heart.

Russ & Katrina… Ophelia is perfect and you guys are such amazing parents already. I can’t wait to see what the future holds.

Fresh 48: Rocky

Rocky-4

This past summer our good friends had their second baby, a handsome little dude named Rocky. Although we were a little sad to say goodbye to our all girls tribe, Rocky has made a great addition to our ‘village’. He has attended many dance & music classes in the short while he’s been around and will no doubt take his job as ‘protective brother’ extremely seriously in the future. Keep your eyes peeled for his in-home newborn shoot!

Enjoy,

Newborn: The Hirtles

Hirtle.jpg

Meet the Hirtles & their beautiful daughter Luisa. When they graciously welcomed me into their home to capture some fleeting newborn moments, they seemed to have transitioned into their parenting roles quite naturally. Anahi looked AMAZING, Jordan was a typical doting father & recounted the birth story from beginning to end (a couple of times), and Dennis… well Dennis was Dennis and he seemed to be enjoying his new title of ‘big brother’. I also captured some video throughout this session and am excited to eventually share it – so keep your eyes peeled! Anyways, here are a few of my favourite snaps!

Alana & Jeremy welcomed me into their home early last month to take pictures of their newest addition. Miss. M is absolutely beautiful and did incredible during her first photo shoot! The love between these two was palpable throughout the entire session and you can tell that they just adore this little girl. Mayla, you are already so so loved! Welcome to this amazing world.

Here are a few of my favourite images… Enjoy!
