Happy Father’s Day to all the wonderful dads and father figures out there! This is a little sneak peek from a recent family session that was filled with giggles, dancing, funny faces and lots of love. More to come next week! Be sure to spoil those dads everyone!
This weekend I had the enormous pleasure of capturing this sweet nine-day-old baby boy and his parents. Here is a sneak peek at a snuggle with his mama. I love how every newborn session that I have the privilege to shoot reminds me that it is truly the little things in life that bring the most joy. Congratulations to this lovely family!
Working on this sweet studio maternity photo session has been an absolute joy. There is something very special about watching a mama-to-be interact with her beautiful baby bump. Contrary to popular belief, a maternity session doesn’t have to be all dolled up or super fancy. In fact the sweet simplicity of a minimalist style like this helps to accentuate what really matters — the incomparable bond between mother and child — in a way that will never look dated or old-fashioned. On a side note, how wonderful is it that photos take on a whole new look when properly framed and matted (keeping in mind, of course, that the watermark would not be present on the actual frame)?
What a lovely time I had working with this little man and his lovely parents last month! He was all smiles and giggles for the camera and kept wowing me with those dazzling baby blues! His parents requested a clean, crisp, minimalist photo session and these darling striped overalls really made it!
I love shooting baby portraits that are crisp and simple so that the focus is completely upon their adorable little facial expressions. It never fails to amaze me how a little one’s expression can completely change from second to second, frame to frame.
Happy 2015 ladies and gentlemen! What better way to kick off the new year than with an adorable newborn outtake from session shot in December. It is a beautiful time of year, bursting with fresh optimism! Enjoy it everyone!
This year LLB Creative hosted some cheerful Children’s Holiday Mini Sessions in our downtown Toronto studio. A minimalist vibe was adopted to give a festive vibe that could still be framed and shared on the family photo wall all year round. Here are a few frames from this little guy’s time in the spotlight. He adored the giant Christmas bauble and our resident studio bear, Filbert. It was a fun, giggle filled day. More from the Holiday Mini Session event coming soon!
Family group shots are most definitely important to capture, but so too are those quiet moments between individual family members like this beautiful father-daughter moment. Isn’t that flower toque adorable?
A wee glimpse into this wee one’s newborn photo session. He was only eight-days-old when this photo was taken and I can’t get enough of his teeny tiny hands and fingers! Documenting a sweet baby’s earliest natural moments at home with their parents is truly magical. I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again… I feel so incredibly lucky and honoured to be invited to meet and photograph brand new babies!
Christmas is a magical and fleeting time, especially if you’re watching a little one eagerly await Santa Claus’ visit. Capture those delighted smiles, those enthusiastic giggles and those adorable holiday inspired pjs and outfits with a Children’s Holiday Mini Session!

This little man was only 20-days-old when I showed up with my camera to capture some of his earliest moments with mum and dad. It is always such a delight to photograph a newborn in their home and makes for a truly beautiful, natural and relaxed session. Much more from this wee one’s session coming soon!
Everything about this photograph warms my heart; the mother-daughter hug, the father-son shoulder rest, the little boy’s shy grin, the dad’s stoic look, the young girl’s whistful gaze, the mother’s contented smile. It is relaxed yet real and shows off how connected this beautiful family is. I’m going to be framing this print in a large format for the studio’s gallery wall, most definitely!
Family portraits do not always have to be `sit and smile at the camera` type poses. In fact, doing something unexpected more often than not promises a unique family portrait that will truly stand the test of time. These two are a couple of recent faves — teeny fingers and toes!
It’s always a surreal experience photographing a newborn. Here is a teeny tiny person, at the very beginning of their life, completely fresh and unspoiled with nothing but possibility surrounding their little being. It is absolutely magical. At one point while photographing this beautiful 17-day-old babe I got chills (the good kind!) One day she will look back on these photographs and realize that some of her earliest moments with her parents are hers to cherish forever.
I cannot stress enough the importance of investing in a newborn photo session. Please, if you have a moment, read these 5 reasons to invest in newborn photography — it is a beyond precious and magical time of life. Wouldn’t you want to remember it always?
So much more from this beautiful session coming soon!
