Who can deny that toddlers are the cutest. They are not always the most cooperative but I sure do love having them for sessions. I love playing observing them and getting those spontaneous moments.
I got to hand make all the props for this set as well and that was equally the same amount of fun, haha. I am not crafty by any means but I did like the creativity of ideas came to life.

First time parents are always so adorable. They are beyond smittened with their new babe. Every baby has their preference and quirks already usually by the time I get to have a session with them.
It is difficult to leave the house with a newborn, without a doubt. And that is why I always praise parents who makes the effort to document such a special event in their lives. From then on, I will take over and do all the work so I am really just "Borrowing" their baby for an hour or so to make some magical portraits!
It was also especially darling when Grandma came to join in on the photo shoot =D

I mean, when you have a stylish mom like Gemma- the only fabulous way to celebrate is to get mess but look great doing it, haha! She was a curious lil' bugger who was always walking like a pro so I guess who wouldn't want to explore right??
I loved my time in the studio with her and I had loads of fun playing, er I mean working. My handy props came in handy and we matched like peanut butter & jellyyyyyy =D

Jill is having her third child! Holy mother of gorgeous, because I wish I could look this good-ever especially being a week away from due date! I did get a chance to do her make-up and hair because, who doesn't like being pampered right?!
Her boudoir maternity look was beyond anything I could of wished for, so soft and elegant but showing her true self. It makes me truly happy to see a mum feel beautiful and confident.

This sweet mum was in the middle to moving when she asked if I offer milk bath sessions. Her baby loves bath time and wanted candid moments of them together. Um, this just screamed hell yes!
Not only that, but mum had given me a bit of history of how she was her miracle baby. From conception to labor, it was anything but easy and this really moved me in a lot of ways. I wanted to give her a very sentimental gallery that shows exactly the precious relationship they had.
Of course there is plenty of planning involved on both our parts and it isn't easy to coordinate but the session came out beautifully in my home studio and I couldn't be happier with the results.

I love a good mini series. The month of May was to celebrate women and motherhood. All the glory and ugly, the tears and dedication it takes not only for our kids but for our family.
We know some of us can skate by without ever having a professional photograph but this was a great chance to gift your children when they are grown. I don't focus on posed looks, I capture the connection and the dynamics of your best moments.
Here are just some of the highlights!
