Most of you will likely recognize the very special mama from this little one’s newborn session. Claudine is my amazing assistant that is by my side at almost all of my family and holiday sessions; there to help make my sessions a wonderful experience for all of my clients. 

When she told me her exciting news about her upcoming arrival many months ago I was overwhelmed with joy for her and her lovely family. And not too long after hearing her big news I of course started thinking about her newborn session and all of what we would do for her little one’s photos. 

I couldn’t wait to meet her baby girl and have a chance to pose and photograph her! Baby M. certainly did not disappoint; she was an absolute darling with the most amazing chubby cheeks and sweet little smile. On the day of her session she was more than happy to cuddle up with her family and nestle into my posing cushion and props. 

We started her newborn session off with photos of the family together with their newest addition. Mom and Dad are so much in love with her and Baby M. loved every minute of their cuddles together. She is also lucky to have such a great big brother to love and help care for her. When she started to fuss a bit he was quick to sing to her and easily calmed her down again next to him. He is going to be such a wonderful help at home with her.

Claudine’s favourite gown from my collection made an appearance at her maternity session so we pulled it again for her to wear in photos with her little girl as a special ‘before and after’ shot of just the two of them together. The gown looks gorgeous on Claudine and the photos of her in the gown both before and after her little girl arrived capture just how quickly life changes when you have a baby.

For Miss M’s photos alone, Mom and Dad selected a beautiful variety of fabric and accessory colours. Because the holidays were just around the corner I also just had to include some photos of her with my favourite holiday props for newborns. Her sweet embrace of the Grinch and Max is absolutely precious and one of my favourite photos of this sweet little girl. Congratulations to Claudine and her family, I am so happy for them and can’t wait to photograph them again soon.
