I have to admit, I haven’t been looking forward to writing this blog post. Not because I don’t like it or the people or anything absurd like that, merely because I just don’t have the words. Much like with Chris + Jason’s wedding post, I am struggling to find the right words to express just how happy everything about this session made me. I spent the last little bit reading Chris + Jason’s wedding blog post as I was hoping to be able to steal bits of it or at least get inspiration from it, but all that has done has made me even more sappy – so I guess that kind of backfired.
Getting to meet, hold and photograph sweet little baby Cigi (short for Cassandra George in case you were wondering), was honestly such an amazing moment. I love getting to photograph all of our friends’ big milestones, but this one was just so extra special because Chris + Jason are such so extra special in our lives.
Well, here we are again Ontario — lockdown. Which means our Newborn & Family Studio is once again shutdown and there will be another group of newborns who can’t get a session in the regular newborn timeframe. But fear not parents, because you can definitely still get newborn photos outside of those first couple weeks and they will still be super adorable!
Need proof? Well Little Sikander here will show you how it’s done!
I have heard many times that babies have a tendency of being born with similar physical characteristics to their father. Something about having that automatic realization that it is theirs (since they didn’t carry the baby for the previous 40 weeks). But there is similarity and then there is Baby Henry, who is basically a teeny tiny clone of his Dad. Which has basically resulted in me calling his tiny Kyle, Baby Kyle, etc. ever since I first met this adorable baby!
Sweet Little Hailey was the first newborn in the studio after the December 2020 to February 2021 lockdown. And I truly believe she knew that, and even more, she knew how badly I needed a really great session as a reward for waiting and worrying so long while I wasn’t able to work.
Little Ella showed up for her session a little sleepy, but somehow it still only took about 2 minutes before she was showing off those beautiful smile and her amazing walking skills! The latter of course meant that both myself and her parents spent that majority of the session catching her and putting her back in front of the background, but hey, that’s what cake smash sessions are all about!
