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! :)

Mike and Ella's Maternity Session at Tifft Nature Preserve

After a couple of cancellations due to stormy weather, and with Ella's due date quickly approaching, we were so glad things finally worked out for Mike and Ella's maternity shoot at Tifft Nature Preserve!

If there were only word to summarize this maternity session, it would be simply: lovely. Ella definitely had the glow of a happy mom-to-be (not to mention the cutest baby bump), and you could tell how enamored Mike was with his Ella and his little one on the way!

Not sure what is more adorable here - Ella's eyes or her freckles. Love it!

Mike made sure we didn't wrap up the shoot before he had a chance to strut his super-hero moves. Now Mike gets to be a super dad! :)

MIke and Ella - we are so glad we had the chance to document this momentous milestone with you two. And we are overjoyed at the safe and healthy arrival of baby Nolan! We hope we get a chance to see you all again very soon!

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!
