While technically not a 2015 baby, (he made his grand arrival on Christmas Eve), Baby L, is the first newborn in front of my lens this year!  I think that is doubly special!

When mom contacted me a few months back with the news that they were expecting their second baby and wanted to book a newborn session.  I was so excited for them.  I was even more excited when I heard they had welcomed a baby boy!  I had the priviledge of photographing their first baby girl a few years ago and now they have both a daughter AND a son!

Baby L is absolutely adorable and cuddly.  His favourite place to be is definitely in his mama’s arms and who can blame him?  There he is warm and comforted and safe.  And the adoration between mom and son is clear – smitten – and it goes both ways.

When C emailed me to tell me they were expecting again, I was so excited to hear their news.  After having twins in her first pregnancy and then leaving their newborn session a few weeks later, I was fairly confident their family was complete.  But boy was I wrong!  Now we are days away from baby number 3 (if they haven’t arrived already!).  Having 3 kids means making big changes…bigger cars, maybe a bigger home, more laundry but also a lot more love.  I am completely confident that C& J and big brother and sister N&M have the love part covered.

Can’t wait to photograph the newborn baby soon!

Earlier this summer I had surgery and was told by my surgeon not to lift things for 6 weeks – including my camera gear.  This was tough for me.  Like part of me was missing.  And let’s face it, photos with your phone are just NOT the same.  But gear with good glass and battery grips can get awfully heavy fast and I didn’t want to take any chances.

So on a lovely warm July evening, I finally got to pick up my gear and shoot K’s maternity session at Petrie Island!  I don’t think we could have asked for a nicer night.  You may recognise K, from her previous maternity session and their daughter C’s newborn session.  Now K&H are expecting baby number 2 and the excitement and anticipation was evident throughout our time together.  The smiles they share say it all.

I can’t wait to meet their new little one in a few weeks!

As all parents of a newborn know, some days are good, others, not quite so great.  Newborns can be fussy, newborns can be sleepy or literally anywhere in between.

Meet Baby D, every bit as chill as her big sister V was at her newborn session.  Calmness must run in the family!  There aren’t many newborn sessions that go as perfectly planned as baby D’s.  I thoroughly enjoyed spending our time together capturing every bit of her newness and the immense love her family has for her.

And sure enough, without a lie, I was thinking about the P family late last year and thinking, I’ll bet they have another one soon.  And poof!  Two days later K sends me an email wanting to book and maternity and newborn session!

We had a great morning at the Arboretum catching up and photographing their family of three, soon to be four.  I can’t wait to hear their new baby news in just a few short weeks!

This is my friend Michelle.  If you have read my blog in the past, you know I’ve gushed about her before.  She is an amazing friend, teacher, mother, wife, daughter, sister…the list could go on and on!  She always has a smile on her face.  She is one of the easiest people to talk to and laugh with.  But what I love the most about her is what a supportive and positive presence she is in my life.  She is the cheerleader everyone should have.  I’m not sure Jennifer Bailey Photography would be what it is today, without her.

So when she found out she was pregnent with her second and asked if I would photograph the new baby, there is no way I would ever say no.  It was a delight.  Her new baby girl is adorable and precious and everything you could ever dream of.  While litte E might not have loved all the handling a photo session requires, we got some very precious images of Michelle’s daughter and her first few days at home.  Both of them are so lucky to have each other.

It is hard to believe 2013 has come to a close.   This past year has been wonderful for my family and I, and I hope it was for yours too.  Let’s hope 2014 brings more of the same.

2013 was definitely good to J&S.  Just before Christimas, a few weeks earlier than expected, they lovingly welcomed Baby Z into their family.  It seems almost ironic to me, but maybe fated to happen this way.  You see I opened up 2012, photographing big sister S’s maternity session.  So it is fitting that I should close a season with their family too.  I adore them.  They are fun, quirky, full of laughs and love and just fun to be around.  I have no doubt that Baby Z will fit right in.

Although, she might have to try to grab some of the spotlight for herself from big sister!  What a cutie!

You may remember N&R’s lovely fall maternity session back in October.  It was a cool day, but nothing like we are experiencing here in Ottawa today! They knew they were expecting a baby girl and now she is finally here, in their arms.

Baby A is everything mom and dad could hope for, beautiful, lovable and oh so cuddly!  It was a joy to photograph her and to capture the new parents she created! 

Thank you N&R for welcoming me into your home and sharing a delicious bowl of Meghli with me!  I loved it!

When my friend M, told me she was expecting a second baby, I was thrilled for her and hubby R.   A few weeks later, when she told me they were expecting a girl, I was over the moon excited for them!  She now gets to experince and enjoy the ups and downs of both a son and a daughter.  And since this baby (who arrived earlier this week!) is a December baby, we knew we had to take advantage of the snow for her maternity session. 

The white snow, paired with bright vibrant colours, makes an amazing backdrop for a maternity session.  I love that she wanted to do this and hope other expecting mommies will too!

After going a week past their due date, R, M and M finally got to meet the newest addition to their family – another baby boy!  I can just image the fun these boys are going to have growing up together.  I think mom might be in for lots of trucks, balls, dirt and a whole bunch of noise!  But, my what fun.

Thank you R&M for inviting me into your home, once again.  It has been amazing to see your family grow!

 ***Swoon*** I LOVE Mommy and Daddy portraits, showing how in love they are with their new baby.  These could be new faves of mine.
