Newmarket Family Photographer | Christmas Photos

Olive is My New BFF!

As most photographers know, kids the age of 2 are the hardest to photograph. Toddlers, for some reason incomprehensible to me, think that playing or having a snack or running away is much more fun then having their photo taken. I know, it’s crazy talk, because I’m SUPER fun!

Well, as it turns out, Olive, who is my newest 2-year-old BFF, was INCREDIBLE during our photo session! She posed! She smiled! She looked at the camera! She… wait for it…. posed AND smiled AND looked at the camera, all at the same time!! It was pure magic. MAGIC I tell you!

Now, I can’t take credit for the setup. I merely suggested that we do Louise & Jeff‘s family Christmas photos wearing their pajamas (Louise had bought them all matching PJs already), while sitting on their bed. All comfy-cozy, right? Well, Louise did an amazing job finding a Christmassy blanket to put on the bed, she had cookies and milk ready for props (and bribery, which we didn’t even need!), she put lights up on the wall with some big bows and a star… that was all Louise! I must say she did an amazing job!

We started the photos off with just Olive, because she was very excited and ready to have her photo taken!

We then added Olive’s new baby brother River (only 2 months old!). Olive is such an adorable big sister, she kept her arm around him to make sure he didn’t fall, she kissed him, she hugged him, she pretended to read him a story for me, she did it all!

At this point, River got a little bit fussy, so Louise went to take care of him and I did some photos of Olive with her dad, Jeff. I’ll be honest, when I saw the photos of Olive and Jeff, I thought to myself “Oh my, these are adorable. Uh oh, how can I get pictures as cute as this with Louise and Olive?! Every mom should have cute photos with her kids!!”

As I said earlier – MAGIC!! I WISH I had photos as adorable as these with my kids when they were 2!!

Last but not least, their lovely family photo. River wasn’t really sure what was going on, but he was looking at the camera and not screaming so I call it a win. Besides, Olive was SO amazing I couldn’t get over it!

Yesterday, we noticed the pear tree in our front yard was blooming these pretty little white flowers. I brought my kids over and told my 4-year-old son to take a picture of it, and handed him my camera. I was totally expecting a photo of the grass, or his feet or something. He just stared at me blankly, so I knelt in front of the tree and said “Take a picture of me in front of the tree!”, and as I knelt down, my daughter ran up and stood in front of me. My son then pointed the camera at us, and pressed the shutter button – framing us perfectly!!! @filemanager

This photo is SO special to me, for a few reasons:

  1. My son took this photo, and it has to best the best one he’s ever taken to-date.
  2. I don’t look completely horrid in the photo (despite that I’m squinting)
  3. My daughter is actually looking at the camera!
  4. My daughter chose her own outfit yesterday morning. So yes, she was wearing her “birthday girl” shirt, even though it wasn’t her birthday, and her favourite yellow pants.
  5. My daughter’s hair looks pretty decent considering she was just running around and the wind had probably gotten it all tangled up.
  6. My daughter is only wearing one shoe. As she was running around, she kicked off one of her shoes, and just kept on going without it. Good old carefree childhood at it’s best! But she is a GIRL so for the picture she lifted her foot up so her sock wouldn’t be dirty. haha. (When she saw the photo on my computer screen she said “stomp your feet, stomp stomp stomp”. lol!! Thank youuu Dora, for that song that got stuck in my head for awhile.)
  7. It was a candid, spur-of-the-moment photo.
  8. And a really big reason this photo is so special to me, is…
  9. I don’t have NEARLY enough nice photos of me with my children!!

It really is like an early Mother’s Day present to me from both my kids. From my son, who took the photo, and my daughter who was in the photo with me. I have to encourage all your moms out there to step out from behind the camera, and get SOMEONE to take photos of you with your kids!! (It doesn’t matter if you need to lose a few pounds, or your hair isn’t great that day, or whatever!) It’s the best gift you can give yourself, and when you look back on it years from now, you’ll be so happy you did!

I hope all the moms out there have a great Mother’s Day this weekend!

This morning I had the pleasure of photographing Quinn and Claire. Quinn (almost 4 years old) was way too cute for her own good, and was a total superstar, we got a ton of great shots of her! Poor little Claire (almost 1 year old) wasn’t feeling well at all, but was a good sport anyway.

I did some shots of the girls together, then some individual shots. Since Claire is turning 1 in less than two weeks we did a cake smash also! Claire did a small amount of cake smashing (which was fantastic considering she wasn’t feeling well!), and Quinn was MORE than happy to finish off the cake for us! I will say though, that only a 4-year-old will stomp on a cake, and then proceed to lick the cake off her own foot ๐Ÿ˜‰

For Samantha’s 1st birthday, we did a cake smash session (and by “cake smash” I mean “super big cupcake smash”)! But alas, Samantha’s older sister Olivia didn’t want to be left out of the fun! So once Samantha was done her smashing, we let Olivia finish it off ๐Ÿ˜‰
