Ottawa Family & Newborn Photographer :: Baby Nikola

Being rocked to sleep by Mommy, cuddled by Daddy, held, kissed, loved and cherished. I just can’t imagine a more perfect way to photograph a newborn but in their natural state of sweetness. Believe it or not, there was a time in my career that I envied the photographers who could creatively pose babies in baskets, on blankets or with a wide array of fluffy hats.
I thought that was what newborn photography was and that was all it could really be. But the more time I spent with my clients, talking with them, spending time in their homes, in their lives getting to know them and what they love about the time in their lives right now, the more I realized I was wrong. For me and the clients I work with, I really feel like the most important memories are the ones they are living with their babies right now. While the posed photography creates a different type of art in and of itself (and can be SO beautiful), there is nothing as precious as this moment. And when your babies are grown, what are the type of memories you’ll want to have to look back on? I promise, they will be the ones where the love can be not only seen but also felt. That’s how I knew I had to deliver something different. Something that documented the joy and love in this newly formed family.
Baby Nikola is just such a wonderful baby. At one month old, she was alert, inquisitive and seemed so content with being held by Mommy or Daddy. What I loved most about this session (as with so many newborn sessions) is that feeling that goes along with being in the presence of new love. Ray and Joanne were simply enthralled with this little peanut. Every sound, every face, every movement was perfection. There’s nothing quite as beautiful as seeing this love through the eyes of a new parent. Baby Nikola is a lucky girl to have such kind, attentive parents and as this family continues to bloom I sincerely hope I have the opportunity to work with them again. If Nikola is this adorable NOW, I can only imagine what the future holds 😉

Ottawa Newborn Photographer :: The Paciga Family

Ahh newborn babies. Every time I’m fortunate enough to photograph a family with a new wee one I’m reminded of how lovely they are and how nothing can really compare with the feeling of being new parents. Rosalind and Mat were naturals. Every interaction I witnessed between parents and baby was sweet, loving and as if they’d been doing it for years. Baby Nathan is a very lucky boy. 🙂

 

This lovely family were actually supposed to be birth photography clients of mine, however, due to Rosalind being induced a couple of weeks earlier than expected and myself being 4 hours out of town at the time, it didn’t quite happen the way we had initially planned! The good news though is that Mom and baby are doing wonderfully and all are settling into their new roles as a family of three. I was very grateful to have been invited in to document this time for them and I really think the love and connection between them shows through in the images.

 

Thank you Mat, Rosalind and baby Nathan for the pleasure of meeting and photographing the three of you!

Ottawa Newborn Photographer ~ Sweet Baby T

Probably my favorite thing about the type of Newborn Lifestyle Photography I do is the authenticity. No posing, no props and no rules about the age of the baby or how sleepy they must be. Just raw, honest documentation of life. I want to see the half-made beds, the empty baby bottles on the night-stand, the mis-matched baby socks on the dresser and the exhausted but blissful smile on Mom’s face as she gazes down at her sweet miracle. These are real moments. These are the moments that you will forget. And in 5, 10, 15 years from now when you look back at your newborn photos, it is my ultimate hope is that the images from your session will flood your heart with memories of this wonderful, emotional time – exactly as it happened.

When Sandra contacted me for baby T’s photos, I was delighted at the opportunity to photograph a 5 week old! For lifestyle newborn photography, this is a fantastic age. The baby is still so newborn-ish (yes, I do believe I made that word up…) but at the same time, alert and becoming more aware of the world around them. Baby T was a sweetheart too. Chubby round cheeks and just the littlest double chin made him one totally edible little dude! Oh, and you may remember Sandra from the family photography session at Mooney’s Bay over the Summer! So yes, that means that little A is a big sister! 🙂

Thank you so much Sandra and baby T for having me in your home to photograph the love that you share. I hope I have the opportunity to photograph all four of you in the not too distant future!
