Being pregnant for 9 months is tough!  It seems like such a long time to meet the little person who has been hidden away in your tummy for all that time.  So going past your due date, is always a little disappointment.  But when the days go by and then a week…..and more….I couldn’t even imagine!

But lucky for Princess C, her mom and dad were full of patience.   And when they met her 10 days past her due date, they were overjoyed!  And rightly so, she is so beautiful and calm and patient.   Clearly she gets that from them!

I can’t tell you how much I love this age!

Of course I love those squishy, cuddly newborn babies too – but this age is all about the smiles and the absolute adoration of mom and dad.  They are babe’s whole world and it shows!  Baby O was such fun to photograph…I don’t think he knows what a frown is!  He couldn’t have made my job any easier!

We watched the forecast ALL week, but thankfully the rain that was called for, stayed well away of this momma-to-be’s maternity session!  Instead we had some gorgeous evening sun, which is ALWAYS my favourity light to shoot in.   The Experimental Farm is truly a magical place for photo sessions at this time of year and very fitting for this expecting mom, who just adored the nature that surrounded us.

Thanks again J!  Can’t wait to meet baby in a few weeks!

I’m am so fortunate to have a career that allows me to travel a little further than my own backyard!

I was so excited when S’s mom (the grandma to be) contacted me to find out if I could travel to Toronto for a maternity session with her daughter.  Well of course!  And I’m so glad I did.  S is beyond glowing and dad to be J, is equally as excited!  We had so much fun walking around the garden and chatting and getting to know each other.  And while I grew up in Toronto and am very aware what a big city it is, I was so surprised to find out we knew some of the same people!

Thanks again S&J.  I can’t wait to hear your big news and to meet the baby in a few months time!  Best of luck to you both.  I know you will be great parents!

I always go into a newborn twin session with lots of ideas – ’cause you just don’t know what you are going to get!  Photographing a single newborn can be tough at times, but two?? 

Well, I couldn’t have asked for two more well behaved boys than B&T.  Did they fuss at different times?  Yes.  Did they sleep at different times? Yes.  Did they need feeding at different times? Yes.  But they also cooperated at the same time!!  And really, when I say fuss, I mean they made baby gurgle sounds with their eyes open 🙂  In reality, they were super stars!

Thanks again C&J!  Your family is beautiful and I can’t wait to share the rest of the session with you soon!
