Skin and Hair | Ezra [Picadilly, NB Newborn Photographer]

I had the pleasure of meeting 1-month Ezra and his mom Kalyn about a month ago, and let me say, as far as newborn sessions go, this was by far my easiest. Despite being what is considered ‘too old’ for newborn photography, beautiful Ezra slept like a champ, and didn’t pee or poop once during the entire session! He had the most amazing skin and super black, fuzzy hair, he was just so striking (you should see his sister Avery, she’s a stunner too!) We did the session out at their home one rainy morning and Kalyn and I talked about babies while he slept and I shot, it was relaxed and lovely 🙂

Here is a full sneak peek of his session (he was so relaxed I didn’t dare move him more than a couple of times, so although I didn’t get a huge variety of poses, I love the shots I did manage to capture, and the two backgrounds, one dark and one light, offer very different looks.)

Oh, newborn babes, is there anything sweeter?

Still lots of new sessions to post, but first, a few more favourites from a couple of sessions in July (that’s right, I said July…told you I was behind!)

Until then,

Genevieve

Faye - He is very striking, those lips and that hair are to die for! He seems so relaxed, hard to believe he’s a month old!

Army Boy | Weston [Oromocto, NB Newborn Photographer]

This sweet little boy is named Weston, and his parents are actually good friends of ours. His papa, Greg, and my husband Dan have been friends since they were 6 years old (I find that so cute!), and Greg and Flo have been together just a few months longer than Dan and I, so we’ve known each other for years as well. When I heard that she was expecting her 2nd baby, I knew exactly what I wanted to give her as a shower present.  Weston was only 2 weeks old when I took these shots, he was my youngest client to date, and he did so well! He slept the entire time we maneuvered him around and only peed and pooped a few times (luckily never on me, just on his mom, ha!)  I’m still learning how to ‘pose’ newborns, but I think that their sweetness pretty much speaks for itself, doesn’t it?

Greg is in the Armed Forces (based in Gagetown) and will actually be leaving for his 2nd tour in Afghanistan early next year, so unfortunately he’s going to miss out on seeing Weston grow up for a little while, but I hope that these images will  bring him some comfort/happiness while he is away, and if I’m lucky, I’ll be photographing Weston (and perhaps his older brother Liam) again very soon!

Here is the FULL session (no need for sneak peeks since this is a gift to Flo!)  I hope you enjoy 🙂

I have my new computer and I am back on track! Finished editing up one wedding today, now I need to tackle my other one, along with the many, many family/child sessions that need editing.  If you are waiting for a gallery or blog post, fear not, they will be coming soon, in between all the unpacking (we just moved into our new house) and groaning (I’m 36 Weeks pregnant and groan every time I move).

Until then,

Geneviève

An Uptown Affair | Jade and Jared [Saint John, NB Wedding Photographer]

Well, what can I say about Jade and Jared’s wedding? It was my first big wedding of the year and I was very lucky to be there with them to celebrate their day. Jade had contacted me last Fall after hearing about me from a friend of hers, and when we met for our initial consultation, she was as sweet as can be (and very well organized, which I appreciated!) She was up for anything I wanted and trusted me completely with her wedding day photos, which was amazing, so I took advantage and did my first ‘urban’ shoot in downtown Saint John, and let me say, I LOVED it! Hoping to do more of those soon (it’s a nice change of pace from all the fields and trees I usually use as my backdrops…)  The ceremony and reception took place at the beautiful Lily Lake Pavillion in Rockwood Park, and was extremely emotional (you know it’s a special day when you’re holding back tears behind your lens and laughing along with a couple you just met!)  It poured the morning of the wedding but we got very lucky and didn’t get rained on at all, nothing beyond a slight mist (the sun even peeked through near the end!) Jade and Jared were a GORGEOUS couple, and the wedding party was so much fun, what a great group of people (the limo ride downtown was one of my favourite moments!)  I could go on, but I’ll stop here and just say that I had the best time capturing the details of Jade and Jared’s story, and that I want to thank them for letting me be part of it.

As I said, I couldn’t really narrow it down, there were so many shots I loved, so this post is PHOTO HEAVY, but with a beautiful couple like this, it’s not very hard to look at 😉

Since I always edit way too many shots for weddings, let’s play a little game:

For every 5 comments on this post (either through the Facebook application or on the blog itself), I’ll throw in some extra files/goodies for the happy couple, so show them some love! Call it an after-wedding present 🙂

 

Be back soon with a *full session* look at a 2-year old little boy, who was my quickest client to date, and of a sweet 2-week old little newborn!

Until then,

Personal Project | 29 Weeks [Bump Watch]

I will admit that I was more than a bit nervous to post these photos, since they are definitely unlike any of my maternity photos to date. I knew, however, that I wanted to showcase an indoor, ‘naked belly’ shoot at some point during my pregnancy, since I realize that many people enjoy this type of maternity session (including myself), and I wanted to show that I could do it and what it would look like. Let’s face it, not everyone is pregnant in the Spring/Summer/Fall like I am, there will be some winter pregnancies when shooting outside will just not be possible every week. That doesn’t mean that we can’t get beautiful shots of your bump!

These were done in my home, in my room, with only a small-ish window as my source of light. Of course black and white is preferred in this type of situation, and I really like how the silhouettes came out, they have that grainy, film-like quality that goes well with this type of session. And as much as I wanted to Photoshop out my wrinkles and veins, and thin out my back and my thighs (and everything else), I held off and kept it as natural as possible, because that’s what pregnancy should be, natural and beautiful just the way it is.

I tried to keep everything fairly modest for the sake of this project, but I would totally be up for doing a sexier maternity shoot with a client, and would love to see a woman confident enough in her pregnant body to go for it and bare it all (or even to wear clothing but rock the session boudoir style…)  If this is something that would interest you, please get in touch with me!

I apologize to anyone that may find these images ‘offensive’, or finds it strange that a photographer would post photos of themselves like this on their blog, but again, I wanted to try this type of session, both for myself personally and professionally, so I did what felt ok.  Trust me, it won’t be happening too often!

I can’t believe I only have about 5 more of these mini sessions to do and then the baby will be here! It has gone by quickly, that’s for sure.  Thank you all for following along with me on this journey of mine 🙂

Be back soon for a wedding and family sneak peek!

Until then,

Country Lovin’ | Nikki & Shane [Norton, NB Engagement Photographer]

Nikki and Shane are getting married this weekend! And from what I can tell from hanging out with these two last week to do their engagement shots, it’s going to be a very laid back, fun and beautiful wedding, set in their backyard, full of family and friends and nature.  Just how I like it.

We went out last Friday evening to scout locations for their wedding pictures, and ended up finding so many great locations in Norton, I can’t wait to do this with them again, but in their full wedding garb, with their wedding party, and as a newly married couple! The evening was super warm, non-buggy and full of sunshiney goodness, I couldn’t have asked for a better evening (seriously, I can’t believe how lucky I’ve been with weather this summer!) I also couldn’t have asked for a nicer (or cuter) couple, they made my job really easy!

Enjoy your photos Nikki and Shane, can’t wait to see you on Saturday!

It’s been busy for this pregnant photography-momma lately, but I’m enjoying it…be back soon to blog my favourites from the Evans session, a sneak peek from an amazing wedding I did last weekend in Saint John, and an adorable drive-in themed family session, so stay tuned!

Until then,

PS-Usually I don’t post entire galleries like this, but Nikki and Shane booked a wedding package with me, so their engagement shoot (with all the files) was included. They later told me that they were really happy they decided to do an engagement shoot (even if it was at the last minute), because it gave them a chance to ‘practice’ being in front of the camera and gave us a chance to try different locations and poses. I highly recommend that all couple who book weddings with me do this, it can reduce a lot of wedding day camera jitters and make the occasion (and images) all the more special.
