Martin & Tara Welcoming Ace...

I had SUCH A BLAST with Martin and Tara creating their maternity photos together! In honor of their baby girl, Ace, on the way, we made a little trip out to Palm Springs to grab a few fun photos at the legendary ACE Hotel! From there we found a sweet little spot in the desert for the rest of their session. I’ve gotta say, these two don’t claim to be models, but they should be! Tara is also an incredibly talented Makeup Artist. (You can check out her work on Instagram at @juscallmetara !) I seriously had such a blast working with these two gems and can’t wait to meet their baby girl!

The Niehaus Fam

November has certainly been the most popular month for family sessions, and I’m not complaining! In recent years I’m coming to really appreciate family sessions more and more. Being an auntie myself, I’m realizing how valuable and precious these photos really are, since these ages and stages flash right before your eyes and never come back. I’m going to try to be better about blogging (keyword: “try”) so I can share some of these recent, adorable family seshes with you. So we’ll start with the Niehaus family and their handsome, little guy!

My babies (that are really my sister's babies but you get it)!

I really hope you like dimples, because you're about to see a whole bunch of 'em in this blog post! Every year I do a shoot with these 3 precious little siblings (aka my nieces and nephew.) I frequently drive through the farms of Ontario, and driving by the cornfields I realized I just had to take them here for this summer's shoot! They had such a blast! I know I'm biased, but I can't get enough of these photos (probably because I can't get enough of these kids.) I hope you enjoy these cuties and some golden hour goodness as much as I have!

A cozy little newborn session...

So some of you may have seen the birth photos I shared in my last blog post of this precious, little family. Of course after little Avery entered the world, we had to capture some newborn photos of her in the comforts of this place she now knows to be her home. Mikey and Chenelle were so kind as to invite me over for this cozy, intimate little session with the three of them. I loved this SO MUCH.

We made use of most of their home for this session, which made it nice and comfortable for little Avery. (And may I also add, how stinkin gorgeous is their home?) It was also so beautiful to observe Mikey and Chenelle in the midst of photographing, as well as in between shots (newborn sessions entail a lot of diaper changes and feeding breaks!) Despite being new parents, they were both so attentive and tender with Avery. It's so evident how much they love her, as well as each other, as they continued to be so considerate to one another whilst caring for their little one's needs. This session was one I will never forget, and I cannot wait to photograph this little fam again in the future.
