Guelph Kitchener Cambridge Newborn & Maternity Photography: Blog https://www.daniellekilgorephotography.com/blog en-us (C) Danielle Kilgore Photography 2024 (Guelph Kitchener Cambridge Newborn & Maternity Photography) Tue, 30 Apr 2024 11:45:00 GMT Tue, 30 Apr 2024 11:45:00 GMT https://www.daniellekilgorephotography.com/img/s/v-12/u567880925-o807232513-50.jpg Guelph Kitchener Cambridge Newborn & Maternity Photography: Blog https://www.daniellekilgorephotography.com/blog 120 80 Self Love Sessions https://www.daniellekilgorephotography.com/blog/2024/4/self-love-sessions MV9A1724-2MV9A1724-2   I am having a heck of a time being able to show anyone my boudoir work.  Meta and Google don't love to let small businesses share semi-nude images.  Even fully clothed images are a hard no from them.  I figured I would try to share via my neglected blog, and see where it takes me.  I LOVE boudoir sessions.  Most of the women I have worked with have been a bit nervous, but once we get started they seem to relax.  I try my best to keep it comfortable, and add a little humour to lighten the mood.  Comedy always wins.  In my opinion at least.  

 

Here are some of my past boudoir sessions.  I'm hoping that sharing these will remind some of you ladies that you'd love to do this for yourself as well!

Some of you may know I've started a new page, and I'm starting the background work to create a new website, solely for boudoir sessions.  I felt it was necessary to separate newborns and families from boudoir sessions.  I've changed my studio to better suit these sessions.  I am still offering newborn and maternity in the studio, but I'm no longer limited to them due to the opened-up space.  I absolutely love boudoir photography.  I used to get all nervous and didn't really know how to go about doing them, but now I can't wait to do more.  My Guelph-based in-home studio is perfect for photography sessions.  It has a separate entrance and is quite private.  The lighting is gorgeous.  

 

Boudoir sessions are a fantastic way to build confidence, if that is what you need, it also is a perfect way to show off your hot bod and get all sexy 😉 So, if you're on the fence about getting them done, jump off the damn fence and contact me to book your session.  I'm super easy to work with, and I'll probably crack jokes to try to put you at ease if you're nervous.  But seriously, there is nothing to be nervous about.  It's fun!  And you get gorgeous photos of yourself, in the end, 🥰  Please contact me at Guelph [email protected].  You can find my pricing here

Guelph Photography-Newborn Photography https://www.daniellekilgorephotography.com/blog/2023/6/guelph-photography-newborn-photography   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 https://www.daniellekilgorephotography.com/blog/2023/4/newborn-photography-information  

watermarkedwatermarked

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.  

MV9A3857MV9A3857 MV9A2459MV9A2459

  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.

MV9A2843MV9A2843 MV9A1632MV9A1632

  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).

IMG_1168IMG_1168 IMG_3460IMG_3460

  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. https://www.daniellekilgorephotography.com/blog/2023/3/blogging-i-dont-know-what-i-am-doing   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 https://www.daniellekilgorephotography.com/blog/2022/3/guelph-photography   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 https://www.daniellekilgorephotography.com/blog/2021/11/2021-catch-up   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 :)

Family Sessions 2020 https://www.daniellekilgorephotography.com/blog/2021/1/family-sessions-2020   I am so thankful for all of the families that chose to work with me over the years.  I have missed seeing as many families due to this ongoing crappy covid crap, and hopefully we all will have a somewhat normal life in the near future.  I don't even know what to put into words as I am at a loss.  I'm not great with words on a good day, so here are some beautiful families, enjoying some beautiful weather :)

2020 Newborn Sessions In Review https://www.daniellekilgorephotography.com/blog/2021/1/2020-newborn-sessions-in-review   I was able to meet adorable babies in 2020.  Less than usual, but I think a lot of us did fewer things than before...  I'm happy I was able to get back to work in the summer after our first lockdown, and I was able to squeeze one newborn into the studio a few days before the current lockdown. 

2020 certainly was challenging and scary and confusing, but hopefully, things are looking up for everyone :)  Here is a cute post on some cute babies.  I hope I am able to start capturing more very, very soon!

2019 catch up https://www.daniellekilgorephotography.com/blog/2020/1/2019-catch-up   Holy Hannah guys, the last blog I did was for June, July & August.  That just shows how on top of things I am...  Typical Danielle style, start stressing about other things that are building up, then decide to blog the last of my 2019 sessions.  Does anyone else tend to procrastinate until you are standing on the edge essentially, then add a tiny bit more to that plate just to see if you can handle a bit more?  I'm ridiculous that way.  I also like to take on a bunch of projects all at the same time!  Anyway, let's proceed with capping up 2019.  It was an amazing year!  I saw families grow and I met new families, there were hiccups and things to celebrate.  So here she goes, please enjoy some of the last sessions from 2019.  It's a big one ;)

Guelph Engagement https://www.daniellekilgorephotography.com/blog/2019/11/guelph-engagement   This is a short and sweet post.  It's been a while since I photographed a wedding, and these 2 are getting married 2 1/2 weeks!  I have to admit that I am a bit nervous, but these two make it super easy.  I had such a blast during their engagement session last month.  He was cracking jokes and we were laughing at all of them ;)  The setting sun and beautiful weather couldn't have made things any more perfect.  I thought I should blog this session, as I never did get a chance to share so many photos.  I loved everything about this session and I can't wait to see what their wedding brings <3

June, July August Sessions https://www.daniellekilgorephotography.com/blog/2019/9/june-july-august-sessions   Here I am trying to get back on track with monthly blogs.  I am currently battling with a killer headache that I have had for a few days now.  I'm thankful I don't have any sessions lined up this week, because it wouldn't be fun.  Clearly summer is no time to be blogging, we were too busy having fun, taking photos and living the wonderful summer life :)  There was, surprisingly, not a lot of rescheduling due to weather this summer.  That is usually the case, but it didn't seem to rain too much this year (which made life a lot easier).  I met with a lot of adorable babies, wonderful families and fun and crazy kids. 

  In this line of work, comparison rears its ugly head (a lot), and I have been trying, for years it seems like, to not get stuck in that shitty mindset.  Winter is usually when it is at its worst.  During the summer and fall, I am too busy to think about it, but things always slow down during the winter months and I always get depressed, compare myself to others and I hate every second of it.  Hopefully this winter I will keep myself busy with learning and doing all of the things that get pushed back when I am too busy.  I won't be entering any photo competitions this year as I am starting to realize that they mean nothing (to me at least).  I know I take nice photos, my clients know I take nice photos, so I don't always need to reassure myself by entering photos and having random people judge them.  Every photo can't be awesome, that would be impossible.  But to at least keeping my clients happy and to keep myself happy, I think is enough.  So on a lighter note, here are some cute photos of some babies <3

April/May Sessions https://www.daniellekilgorephotography.com/blog/2019/6/april/may-sessions   Am I ever behind!  Spring arrived with a bang with so many babies.  So many of them born early and I think 1 girl was born a day late.  It's nice that I enjoyed the rainy weather photographing adorable babies in my studio and in clients homes.  I LOVE going to clients homes.  When I went away to college I studied interior design at a couple of different schools.  It turned out school wasn't for me ;)  I do still love and have a huge interest in design and decorating, and that is why I love going to clients homes.  I get to see so many different tastes and spaces.  Mind you, not a lot of the homes are featured in the sessions as I am usually up in people' faces...

  Well, here I am catching up on the April and May sessions.  I am looking forward to meeting new families and familiar faces this summer :)  Please enjoy.  Also, I have a June promotion posted here June Promotion

March Sessions https://www.daniellekilgorephotography.com/blog/2019/4/march-sessions   Studio maternity sessions will be coming to an end soon as the warmer weather comes in...  I am actually doing a maternity session tonight in the studio vs outside because we received some ridiculous snow over the weekend. I still love doing maternity sessions in the studio, I just REALLY love doing them outside.  I feel like there is way more variety and backdrops.  This doesn't mean that the studio is out of the question if you are planning an upcoming session, it just means that spring is slowly creeping in and I am anxious to work outside in the sunshine and walk around and get attacked by bugs... 

  Anywho, I am sharing some of my favourites from March.  Please contact me if you are wanting to set up an upcoming session as available time slots become more limited in the summer and fall due to my kids being home and being away/booked up on the weekends.  Newborn/maternity sessions are booked in your 2nd trimester to ensure I do have availability.  Please check out my Promotions page to see current promotions.  The mini maternity promotion will be ending soon, so you may want to take advantage sooner than later :)

February Sessions https://www.daniellekilgorephotography.com/blog/2019/3/february-sessions   IMG_2028IMG_2028

Phew!  We made it through February and I was lucky enough to see a few babies last month.  February is normally a slower time for photographers, a time to focus on behind the scenes stuff and for learning etc.  I spent a lot of February dealing with the winter blues.  I have to be honest, it was a tough one this year.  I seem to be clambering my way out, but wowzers, I feel like I aged a decade over this winter.  

  Thank goodness for my job, where I get to snuggle babies and then send them on their merry way ;)  Don't get me wrong, I love babies, but thinking about what life was like when we had babies in the house makes me remember how hard it was.  Yes, I am dealing with sassy kids now, but a screaming newborn and the constant feeding...  But, I made it through and so will you or you already have!  I also did my first boudoir session and had a blast and I am so excited to do more!

  I will finish this little blog post with some adorable little babies and some beautiful women <3

Boudoir Sessions https://www.daniellekilgorephotography.com/blog/2019/2/boudoir-sessions  After lot's of contemplation and nervousness, I finally bit the bullet and did it!  I am excited to announce that I am now offering boudoir sessions.  They can be done in either my home studio or in your home.  It was actually a lot easier than I had thought as a beautiful woman who is confident in front of a camera is very easy to photograph <3

Winter Wedding https://www.daniellekilgorephotography.com/blog/2019/2/winter-wedding

So my friends decided to have a winter wedding, and a winter wedding they got!  We had a crazy winter storm that day that didn't let up until the wee hours of the morning.  Their wedding was at Lakeview by Carmen's in Hamilton, which is right on Lake Ontario.  All day and night we kept staring out the windows in awe of the massive waves and the snow that was blowing on a 45-degree angle.  

Besides the crazy weather, it didn't seem to make much difference for these 2 love birds.  I have known them for years and they are truly sweet to one another.  You could feel the love in the room.  We all had a blast and I would totally do it again (if it was in the summer ) ;)  Please enjoy some images from their big day.

January Sessions https://www.daniellekilgorephotography.com/blog/2019/1/january-sessions   It's the last day in January and it is bitter cold out.  So cold that I am not taking my kids to school so we can hibernate.  Every year I always try to convince myself to give winter another try.  Try to enjoy it, try to see it in a new light.  Well, I've come to the conclusion that that is not possible.  I am NOT a winter person and I never will be.  I enjoy the winter light (what little light there is), and that is about it.  I will just continue to begrudgingly bare with it and pack on the winter pounds.  I will hibernate until the snow and winter coldness leaves us.  I am sharing some images from sessions that were held this past month.  I hope you enjoy them and please be sure to check out my link to current promotions at the bottom of the page.  My maternity/newborn promotion will be ending today!

Maternity Sessions https://www.daniellekilgorephotography.com/blog/2019/1/maternity-sessions   There are a couple of things that I actually like about winter, and one of them is studio maternity sessions.  I always dread having to do sessions indoors after the summer disappears, but once I get there I absolutely love them.  It's a great time to take advantage of my maternity gowns that I offer ( I think I have 10 or more), just to spruce up the session and to change up the outfits.  I have a giant window in my studio that I love to take advantage of, especially for silhouettes, which I am a huge fan of.  I can also take advantage of the giant window for natural light.  I use both studio lights and natural light in my studio, it all depends on my mood or how the light is.  Please enjoy some of my favourite studio maternity images and check out the link at the bottom of this post to see my current promotion for a free maternity session!

December to Finish Off 2018 https://www.daniellekilgorephotography.com/blog/2019/1/2018-in-review   At the beginning of every year, I start my search through all of my photos that were taken in the past year.  Looking at the first few months of the year, I always feel a sense of surprise and nostalgia when seeing faces in the images.  Seeing images that I thought were taken much longer ago, while some feel like they were taken only a few short weeks ago.  I always link my own life with the sessions I am a part of.  When I am looking at family images from this past summer, I think of what my kids and my family were doing during this time frame.  Sometimes there may even be a photo of one of my offspring in the session as they are starting to come with me to more sessions ;)  I'll stop rambling and share some photos from December.  Please enjoy and I hope to see lot's of new and familiar faces this year.

A Look Back https://www.daniellekilgorephotography.com/blog/2016/1/a-look-back   Holy crap, I am turning 40... I don't really know how to feel about that.  I can say that I am totally in love with my family, I adore my job, I love my friends and I am happy with what I have  and my accomplishments.  Photography wasn't something that I had a passion for all my life.  I had a point a shoot and annoyed my friends with the crazy flash when I was younger, I also remember my very first camera was a pink Le Clic.  I freaking loved that thing.  I love watching my kids show an interest in taking pictures and seeing pictures of themselves.  My dad and my brother both have a soft spot for photography as well.  I am currently borrowing my dads film camera and the first roll that I took has been sitting on a shelf waiting to be developed for a few months now.  I am really nervous about the outcome.  I don't really know why, as I would probably learn from my mistakes or be pleasantly surprised?

 

Well, here's to another great year and I hope I reach some of my goals and continue looking like I'm 25 ;)  At least I feel that way (sometimes).

Here are a few of my recent personal favourites.  Obviously most of them will be of my offspring <3
