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!

Louise and Jeff, it was SO awesome photographing your beautiful family again! Until next time! 🙂

Tottenham Baby Photographer | Isla’s First Christmas

Adorable baby Isla is 8 months old, and is celebrating her first Christmas today! And I had the privilege of capturing Isla’s very first set of Christmas portraits!

I had so many favourites! Just look at that cute little face! Isla’s mom, Lyndsay, did a fantastic job of setting up the “background”, as well as putting together a few props. She also had a few different outfits for Isla.

Another “Fun Friday!” post!

Christmas is only a couple days away (today is Christmas Eve Eve!), so I thought I would post some tips on getting some great photos of Christmas morning. I realize that not everyone celebrates Christmas, but for those of you who do, hopefully these tips help you out a bit!

  • Get as much light in the room as you can! Turn up the ambient lighting and open all the shades. You want to be able to use natural light as much as possible, so try to keep your flash OFF!
  • Look at the scene. Are there windows behind your tree? If you shoot towards the windows your pictures will come out dark. Move to the side, look for a better spot, find a good angle, etc.
  • Be ready to push the shutter at a moments notice – you want to capture natural expressions on your childrens faces!
  • Get down on the ground with them while they are opening presents. Try to get to their level.
  • Shoot quickly and shoot often! You don’t want to miss anything! It’s better to have too many pictures than not enough!
  • Don’t forget the detail shots! A beautiful ornament, a bow on a present…. the details can help tell a beautiful story.
  • Document the day. I always start the night before. Take pictures of Santa’s cookies, the tree before the kids wake up, your children sleeping, stockings hanging on the mantle, etc.
  • If your pictures are too blurry, then turn on the flash (only as a last resort!)

I hope these tips help you to get some fabulous images on Christmas morning! If you get shot you’re particularly proud of, upload it somewhere (facebook, photobucket, flickr, twitter, etc.) comment below with the link so I can see it!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Jacob came over today to get some quick Christmas portraits done. My son (age 2.5) loved playing with Jacob while we were reviewing all the images too!

Jacob has to be one of the best two year olds I’ve photographed. (He didn’t even try to run through, yes THROUGH, my background…. *stares at my son*) He practically just sat nicely and smiled for the camera (yeahhhh… that’s what happened… right Anne-Marie? 😉 )

two year old

This one shall forever be known as his “GQ shot”. haha.

What a little cutie!

I haven’t seen this wonderful family in a year (almost exactly one year, actually!) – and the biggest surprise was how different little Samantha was! She is growing up SO fast!! She also was *incredibly* good, considering she’s almost two years old! (Early Happy Birthday Samantha!)

Olivia was her usual diva self, and definitely plays it up for the camera!

We did a whole series of shots with the Christmas lights, but the one below is definitely my favourite out of all of them!
