There’s a lot to LOVE about what I do. 💕👶🏻 New babies, being a part of Family milestones and special moments in my clients lives, capturing ADORABLE kiddos and the opportunity to connect with SWEET families year after year are a few of the obvious ones. 👧🏻👶🏻👦🏼💛 But today I’m feeling so much gratitude for something a little less obvious.
I am blessed to connect with fellow creatives, collaborating with other photogs, referring and sharing knowledge. I receive a lot messages from new photographers & I hope be able to help them also grow in this field as well as help them in their craft. I’m able to refer clients to other talented creatives if our styles don’t align and I’m obsessed with creating art for #mompreneurs & their products.
There is so much joy in what I do, in the creative community as a whole and today I am so very thankful for that 🧡🧡 Happy Saturday friends!!! Stay dry out there ☔️
I'm definitely channeling these beachy vibes this rainy weekend here in Toronto.
Can I also say how mich I want that lobster onsie for my beach days? 🏖️🏖️🏖️
Hope you have a Wonderful.weekend regardless of the weather!
Look who just found her feet!! 😀
Albany is 5.5 months old now. Where has the time gone?
I've always been hesitant to photograph this age but let me tell you even being a newborn photographer my favourite images of my daughter are the ones of her unposed. Capturing her little adorable expressions and every new thing she discovers has truly been amazing for me as a mom.
I love photographing this age. It still takes me a few hours to capture the images I'd like as it is a lot more work then a newborn session for me. I haven't had anyone's help to get her to smile and her smiles often disappear as soon as the camera's in front of my face. I jump up and down, sing hokie pokie Elmo, sing and dance like no-one's watching (literally). If I did these things for my clients I for sure would not want these things videotaped. 😂
Often I receive inquiries to photograph older babies and I think I've had enough practice with Albany now that I'd like to start photographing this age more. The age where babies begin to hold their heads up at around 4 months but they're not yet sitting. Albany doesn't stay still so I'm working with constant motion now unlike the sleeping newborns. I dance and I sweat and we still need to take breaks for feedings and mini naps and she has fallen asleep for pictures even at 5 months.
I am looking for child care now so I can work full-time again. I'm on a wait list but I'm not sure how long that will be. If anyone knows a great child care facility either home care or daycare centre in the Bowmanville area I'd love to hear from you!
In the meantime, I have started working part-time mostly on weekends.
Love these babies to pieces!
