Guelph Photography-Newborn Photography

June 20, 2023

  I realized I hadn't done a blog in a while.  It isn't my favourite thing to do, as I am a gal focusing on images, not descriptions.  If you have seen any of my social media posts you can see I don't really tend to say a lot.  So, writing a blog post is strange to me, but I try!  

  I will make this short and sweet, as I am here to share some recent images of newborns that I had the pleasure of photographing.  Please be sure to check out my Pricing here, as well as any current events or Promotions.

Newborn Photography Information

April 12, 2023



I thought I would write about the whole newborn photography experience.  Many parents tell me they have no idea what to expect as this is either their first time booking a photographer, or it is their first baby.  So, let's start with when to book.  Some parents book months in advance, and others book last minute.  Either is fine with me, except for during the summer through to late fall as things are hectic with sessions during those months.  Maternity sessions (if this is something you are interested in), are done anywhere between 32 and 37ish weeks.  Newborn sessions are booked for anywhere between 1 and 2 weeks ideally, but sometimes life happens and we meet when the baby is 1 month.  That is fine too, but babies become more alert and awake after the first month.

  When you first arrive at my home-based studio, we will get the baby changed into a cute little outfit, which in turn will probably wake them up and they will decide to eat (again).  Generally, the first little portion of the session is spent soothing the baby, and probably feeding them.  I do like to start with wrapping them as that helps to put them to sleep.  I like to place the baby in one of my selected props (boxes, baskets, beds), for posing.  I also use a beanbag for those adorable squishy, sleepy baby photos.

  I like to keep the studio warm as babies do prefer a warmer environment to feel comfortable.  Immediate family are always welcome in the photos, except for the mini newborn sessions as they only focus on the baby.  If you have a toddler coming, we normally start with the family portraits in the beginning so they don't get bored and impatient.  There are a few parks, a library, and a Tim Horton's down the road from my studio.  Another parent or guardian is more than welcome to take their other child(ren).

  Babies tend to be hungrier when they come to the studio, so I ask parents to be prepared for a little more than usual.  There is seating, so breastfeeding or bottle feeding is comfortable for you.  I have a changing table available for your use as well.

Blogging. I don't know what I am doing.

March 15, 2023

  I realized I haven't blogged in a very long time.  I don't even know if this should be called a blog.  I am currently enjoying a moment of "quiet", while my kids are enjoying their March break gaming, and being as lazy as it is humanly possible.  Well, that is my son.  My daughter on the other hand, doesn't really like sitting still for long.  We aren't ones to really do anything "fun" for March break.  We used to go to Niagara to a hotel with the kids for a couple of days, but Covid happened and pooched that idea.  My son and I are homebodies, and have no complaints about not going anywhere, so a visit to the $ store made my daughters vacation! 

  I am going to share some of my past to present sessions and keep you up-to-date that I offer a variety of photography services.  Boudoir, maternity, baby(6 month to 1 year), newborn, and family photography.  Once in awhile I will also do a wedding here and there :)  Reach out if you are looking to get your photos done.

Guelph Photography

March 31, 2022

  Wowza, it's been a loooooooooong time since I did a blog post.  To be honest, I am terrible with words and I never know what to say.  Like "here are some pretty pictures, I hope you like them".  That doesn't really come off as professional or well thought out.  I even have a bit of a hard time using my words to direct people for their photos, so I usually end up just physically moving them myself.

  It's been quiet around here, and things are starting to pick back up again.  I gave the studio a refresh, and it looks more modern, rich and new <3  I am looking forward to having more sessions in the studio to showcase the new paint colour and a few new props and wraps etc. :)

  I am sharing a few of my favourites from recent sessions to keep you up to date and let you know I am still here!  Outdoor sessions are on the horizon and I couldn't be happier about that.  If you are looking for a photographer in the Guelph and surrounding area, I am your woman!  Contact me if you have any questions or if you would like to set something up.

2021 Catch Up

November 23, 2021

  Holy crap, it has been so long since I wrote a blog.  Well, I don't really "write" much.  I'd rather just share a bunch of photos, because I normally spend more time writing and thinking, then rewriting and thinking, then deleting it all.  So here we are, me filling space with pointless chatter.  

  I thought maybe catching up with sharing photos would be a good idea.  Some of you may be thinking I am just taking photos of my personal life, which I try to do daily, but I do actually see people, that hire me ;)  I am going to fill this blog with a bunch of beautiful families that I had the pleasure of working with over the past few months :)  I hope you enjoy them as much I did :)
