My sweet friend Cuziah lived just outside of Hamilton, Ontario. I travel as far as Hamilton and Dundas with no additional travel fee. Miss Cuziah has a loving cousin in Guelph that referred her to me. I love referrals! It is so heart warming to know that someone in Guelph loves my newborn portraits enough to tell someone in Hamilton about my work.
Cuziah was a hungry little lady! She was definitely having a growth spurt. I love that the length of my newborn photography sessions allow us enough time to feed as many times as required. I would hate to see a baby rushed! We fed and soothed and waited for the perfect moment to capture this first precious moments of her little life. Babies are very good at dictating their own schedule. They love 3am party time, sleeping when they’re supposed to be awake, and taking a little nap when they’re supposed to be feeding. You just have to let go of the plans and work on ‘baby time’. For moms, this means being up all night sometimes, but I hope that most of my babies figure out the difference between days and nights pretty quickly. In the mean time, it is often good for the pictures if the baby was up all night the evening before. This allows them to sleep well throughout the session!
I supply all the newborn Photo props that we use during the sessions. I have various hats, blankets and baskets, and put a great deal of effort into styling my shoots. If you are looking for a hat like the one below, it can be purchased from http://www.etsy.com/shop/kiddodesigns. Kiddo Designs is located in Wellington County and ships out of Drayton, Ontario. She specializes in knit items for newborn babies, but also makes hats for older children on request.
