Oh this little guy! He’s just the sweetest!
Back in February my dear friends Chrissy and Steve welcomed their beautiful baby boy Levi into the world! The original plan was for me to drive to the hospital (about an hour outside of Ottawa) and would photograph the birth. Levi, however, had other plans and his birth happened much quicker than anyone expected. Before I could arrange to get there, it was all over!
The next morning my family and I drove out to meet him and congratulate the new parents. Even though I had missed the birth, I was happy to bring my camera along anyway and capture some moments of the three of them in the hospital. What I love about photos like this is the authenticity. I know a lot of people probably wouldn’t think of the hospital as an ideal place and time to have professional newborn photos taken, but it definitely is! You just need the right photographer to make the ordinary moments look extraordinary 😉
Thanks so much to Steve and Chrissy for having me in to capture some of these first moments with little Levi! I have a funny feeling that this won’t be the last time these three are featured here on the blog! 😉
If you are expecting a baby and are interested in having a set of newborn photos taken in-hospital, let’s get in touch! Newborns grow and change in the blink of an eye. Capturing these sweet first moments as a new family are so important and will be a treasured memory for years to come!
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!
Are you expecting a new baby in the next few months? I’d love to speak with you

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!
