Sweet Baby Max | New Brunswick Newborn Photographer

Last month was quiet for me in the little ‘ole studio, which made Max’s visit even more special. He is the baby bro of Leo, who I photographed about 2.5 years ago, and my oh my what a sweet pair of brothers. They looked nothing alike (just like my newborns), and Max seemed to have that classic ‘chill 2nd child’ vibe going, even when he was awake he just stared at me, which I love! Looking forward to watching this little Bub grow up (thankful for social media in cases like this because I can see them grow and change after they leave our session!)

Here he is, sweet baby Max.

Personal | 17 in 2017

2017 was a great year for us personally but one without many ‘firsts’; both the kids are in school now, Dan and I are firmly settled into our careers,  we didn’t do any major renovations like in 2016 and we didn’t take any major trips (besides the same ones we take every year)…the only ‘first’ I could think of what that it was the first year since 2010 that the kids weren’t in ANY sort of child care setting! Nice on the wallets, hard on my brain 😛

Looking back, life just flowed smoothy last year and while I always feel like I didn’t capture enough of our lives, these images show just the opposite. The older I get the less I stress about perfection, so while these images definitely aren’t perfect, they are good and they are us, and that’s what matters.

So here we go, 1 image to sum up each month in 2017 (plus 5 other favs from the year) <3

Sweet Baby MacKenzie | Saint John, New Brunswick Newborn Photographer

Oh this girl, and this family. I was so thrilled when Shawna messaged me to saying that she was expecting again; after photographing baby Mya only 16 months before (I thought it was over 2 years ago, oops!) I was so excited to meet their newest little lady. And she did not disappoint! Beautiful hair, a beautiful little mouth and just darling. Mya was so well behaved for a toddler and mom and dad were as gorgeous as ever too. (We won’t talk about the mess MacKenzie made or the subsequent trip to the store for leggings though, that will just be a funny story for later…)

Here she is, sweet baby MacKenzie.

Sweet Baby Brett | Saint John, New Brunswick Newborn Photographer

The tiniest little peanut came in to see me last month, and I was blown away once again by the amazingness that is a newborn. So small, so full of potential, so innocent…I can really see why people want to keep them this way forever! Brett was perfect for me and slept (mostly) beautifully, and his parents could not have been more smitten with him than they were, I enjoyed working with them immensely.

Here he is, sweet baby Brett.

Personal | 16 in 2016

After sharing my favourite personal 15 images from 2015, I decided to keep the tradition going by sharing my favourite 16 images from 2016; what I’m finding as I look through my personal work is that while I do still aim to get creative portraits of my kids and my husband from time to time, really, in the end, it’s the simple portraits that I love the most. They might not be the prettiest images to look at and they may seem flat or uninteresting to other artists, but as I look back on them now, the feelings and memories prove to me that these photographs don’t have to be the best in the world, they just have to be real.

I want to remember the kids at these ages (5-turning-6 and 4-turning-5, the best ages EVER); I want to remember Dan’s aging process and how he looks straight through the camera at me; I want to remember where we went for our adventures; I want to remember the simple moments we had at home; I want to remember what our house and yard looked like; I want to remember the trips and vacations; I want to remember our life in the best possible light (literally).

I want to remember it all.

Here we are, my favs, month by month…
