Whiteside Family & Maternity Portrait Session at Lewiston's ArtPark

With baby number four on the way, Asha and Fred decided it was high time to plan a family portrait session that would capture the energy and personalities of their growing family, while celebrating their latest addition. So off we went, to Lewiston's ArtPark, for what turned out to be a very unique family maternity session! We split our energies to capture both the exuberance of their playful children and the intimacies of mom and dad that, well, reminded us all how all the kids came into the world in the first place :)

AT the start of the shoot, the kids hung around just long enough for us to capture a group shot. Then they were off to play while mom and dad had their own portrait session. The lighting and the scenery of the lower park overlooking the Niagara River made for a perfect setting.

Three kids and counting, these two still have that spark. We absolutely love the interaction--as natural as the scenery!

While mom and dad were doing their thing, the kids had already set their eyes on much more fun stuff in the woodsy Emerald Grove area of the park. So we headed over to the huts and sculptures to capture them doing what kids do best - play!

Just a few more shots with the family reunited, and it was a wrap!

Whiteside family, thanks for a fun and beautiful shoot! We had such a great time with you all and look forward to seeing you again after your latest addition has arrived! :)

Little Miss Leila Ann's One-Year-Old Baby Portrait Session

It is so exciting for us to be able to capture baby's first year in photographs! That's one of the reasons we were so happy to be reunited with Little Miss Leila Ann as she turned one year old--that and the fact that she is just takes cuteness to a new level! From newborn baby to holding herself up to sitting up like a big girl, it has been a joy to photograph all of the phases of her new life!

We thought it was appropriate to mark this one-year milestone with a few shots in a grown-up chair. (That coupled with the fact that she took off like a rocket every time we sat her on the floor!) She sat so prettily for us, like a big girl!

We just couldn't end the shoot without a photograph in that cute monkey hat! :)

We had a great time as always with you, Leila Ann! We certainly hope this is not the last time we get to see you and your family!

Baby Chase's Newborn Lifestyle Photography Session

From the time of Colleen and Jon's maternity session, we were eagerly looking forward to baby Chase's newborn session! So on a sunny Spring afternoon, we finally had the joy of photographing a lifestyle family portrait session with newborn baby Chase and his family.  

It was our pleasure to be some of the first folks to welcome baby Chase into the world! We met him comfy and cozy at home with his family, gently settling into a nap...the perfect opportunity to get some sleepy shots!

After a few sleepy poses, baby Chase woke up just long enough to smile and show off his gorgeous eyes.

After a few shots with the family, mommy was able to coax him back to sleep. These next few frames are just adorable, from head to toe! :)

Thanks for a lovely shoot, little Chase--you and your family! We can't wait to meet you again this summer to see how you've grown!

Colleen & Jon's In-Studio Maternity Portrait Session

When Colleen called to schedule her maternity shoot, we were just experiencing the start of what would turn out to be one of the coldest, snowiest, windiest winters in decades! So of course, we opted for an in-studio maternity session to keep her, Jon, baby--and us--warm and cozy.

While maternity portraits are really all about mommy's baby bump, we absolutely love photographing couples together, so we were really glad to have dad in session with us as well.

We can tell by the shoes that this is going to be one sharp-dressed little baby boy!

Jon and Colleen, congratulations on your new baby-boy-to-be, and thanks for letting us be a part of his welcoming committee! We are really looking forward to meeting him and photographing your family together during his first year!

Leila Ann - 7 months old!

Once again, we were happy to have Miss Leila Ann back in our studio for more of her first year portraits! She is just growing so quickly, and getting cuter every time we see her! Love that smile - and those little toes!
