Sweet Baby Girl

August 29, 2007 | Filed under Uncategorized

Have you ever seen such a delicious little baby girl?  Baby Mia is the perfect addition to this family! She officially gets the title of "Newborn With The Most Proofs" in her gallery.  I usually show about 35-40 newborn proofs, but Mia tops the record with 60!  What a co-operative, adorable subject!  And she didn’t get Mom and Dad wet or dirty in spite of all the naked shots! LOL. She’s a beauty you guys!

Hard to believe summer is on it’s way out already! My September availablility has been released on and the dates are booking quickly!  Now I am just hoping that the weather will co-operate as I won’t have space for re-scheduled appointments.  Anyone wanting to get in for outdoor family portraits shoould keep in mind that evenings are best, usually around 6-6:30 pm, provided it is a clear day. If is is overcast, but not darkly so, any time of day is okay. 

People often ask me what to wear for these types of session.  I cannot stress enough how important wardrobe choice is in making a beautiful family portrait.  Avoid plaids, stripes/patterns and logos, as usual and try to aim for some harmony. While it is not always necessary to completely match everyone’s outfits, there should be a common colour throughout. In the fall, brown is a nice colour to build around, and it is available abundantly in the stores this season. There are some family images on that illustrate this point under ‘Love.’


At last!

August has been a VERY busy month and I have met so many adorable little people and their parents!  Unfortunately, I was sooo busy trying to stay on top of things, I haven’t had time to update my blog!  I will get back to it more regularly starting NOW, even backtracking a bit in the next few days to share some of the cuties I photographed!

For today though, I am excited to share one of two new backdrops I have for fall. Ironically it is called Zachary, and my first little subject to try it out is my son, who is also called Zachary:


And then of course his sister Chloe had to give it a shot:



Stay tuned to see the other new backdrop, La Rosa in the next week or so!

In other news, my September availability should be on my website the end of this weekend!
