It's Time to Start Planning Your Family Portrait Session!

It’s Labour Day weekend and if you have kids and you live in Canada that means back to school is literally around the corner. It’s that time of year where we all know we need to starting planning. Figuring out lunches, signing up for activities (late of course), and feeling like a hot mess for the next week or two. Or is that just me?  While you are starting to make a schedule and organize your life now is the perfect time to add "Update Family Portrait" to your list. The leaves will soon be changing, adding beautiful colours to the background and now is the perfect time to book an outdoor photo session with your favourite photographer! 

Here is some inspiration for those interested in doing a fall session!

Interested in booking with us? Shoot us an email, text us, or give us a call (information below)!

Have an awesome long weekend!

A Newborn Session with Wyatt!

Photographing newborns is a true passion for me. I love setting up the backgrounds,  cuddling the babes and perfecting my angle!  I really enjoyed getting to know this amazing family and their handsome little man, Wyatt. He was just perfect during the session and slept beautifully, allowing me to capture these amazing images of him!

Enjoy!

Love LOCPS xoxo

A Maternity/Family Photo Session with our Neighbours!

Just over a year ago our new neighbours moved in. We were a little nervous when the house went up for sale as the previous owner, a single older gentleman, was never home and we were used to the house being empty. Once we saw that it was a young family moving in we were thrilled. Our neighbourhood is just starting to evolve with young families and our kids have been starving for local playmates. Over this year we have absolutely loved getting to know Ben, Danielle and their son Wyatt (whom our children adore).  We were thrilled when Danielle shared the news that they were expecting their second child, and we were honoured when asked to do updated maternity and family photos for them!

We are so happy to have these wonderful and genuine people as our neighbours and we hope they never leave! 

Here are some highlights from our session with this gorgeous family!

The Handsome Noah- A Newborn Session

We had the privilege of meeting this amazing family when we did a cake smash with their first son, Liam, read all about that session here. Once baby Noah joined the family I was thrilled to jump in and photograph this handsome baby boy! 

I am hoping this family has more kids, cause they are just so darn cute!

Here are a few of our faves!

Jenny’s Milk Bath Maternity Session with Baby #2

I was so thrilled when I got a text from a long time client (and now great friend) telling me that she was pregnant with baby number two! Jenny and I met each other when she was pregnant with her first child, Tristan, and after just a few moments in the studio it was clear that Jenny and her husband J were going to become an important part of our lives at Left of Centre Photography! I feel so fortunate to have Jenny and her gorgeous family in my life and I am honoured to be chosen to capture these important memories for her! I wanted to do something different with her maternity photos this time around and I had been playing around with the idea of doing Milk Bath photographs. Our home studio comes equipped with a gorgeous clawfoot bathtub and I was itching to give it a try. Jenny was willing to be my guinea pig and her patience while I fussed with the flowers (and made Jeff go down the road to cut a few lilacs) was amazing.

Jenny is one gorgeous lady and I am very pleased with how the milk bath images turned out.  Here are just a few of my faves- including Jeff placing himself nicely into one of their family portraits!

Our Second Session with a Brand New Family Member!

We had the privilege of photographing this family once before, when their daughter turned one. We were very honoured when they contacted us again once baby Ryleigh arrived. Ryleigh and her sister, Brianna, are the most adorable sisters ever and you can already tell they are going to be best of friends!  Here are some highlights of Ryleigh and her beautiful family.

All in the Family!

A new baby is born and arrives home to meet her family… of fur siblings! When I rang baby Teegan’s doorbell for my home session with her I was pleasantly surprised to be excitedly greeted by two dogs and a cat!  It was such a treat to work with all these animals during my newborn session with Teegan. They all really love her and accept her as one of their own. It was hard to get just a solo one of this new baby because everyone wanted to be in the shot!

Check out this amazing family and their new baby!

Three Sessions that Represent a New Beginning in 2018!

The New Year has rolled in with a bang and we are very excited here at Left of Centre Photography to see what 2018 has in store! Not being one for those New Years Resolutions that I deep down know I am never going to achieve (sorry extra ten pounds make yourself comfortable ‘cause you’re staying put!). I like to look at the new year with the thought of fresh starts, new beginnings, clean slates and endless creative possibilities. Now is the perfect time to change a professional image, start that business, try blogging, or simply try something new-like a sandwich of mars bars and kit-kats; heaven!

After our break between Christmas and New Year we have hit the ground running and straight back to work!  Here at Left of Centre Photography January is Corporate Headshot month and one of our busiest times to help professionals achieve the best image they possibly can! Stay tuned for more business portrait blogs this month!

Here are three very different sessions that have been an awesome start to our 2018 and represent an impressive new beginning-

A new look! Marcel is a talented Opera singer attending his first year Masters program in Performance at Western University. Cropping in close, his headshots embody a theatre feel with posing and lighting while remaining professional. Perfect for a performing background!

 

A beautiful new baby boy to cuddle!  Jaysen was born in mid December and was the perfect gift to this family of four and with two big sisters to love him 2018 is going to be one magical year for this beautiful family!

 

Cat-in-the-Hate Knows a lot about That!  Massimo had a blast with his cake-smash with this colourful theme.  There really is nothing like being allowed to get cake EVERYWHERE!!! I like to use it as an excuse to make a mess- one that I make Jeff clean up!!

No matter where you are in life, the new year is the best time to reflect on and reinvent yourself! What are your plans for the new year? Whatever they are we hope that they are magical and everything you hoped for!

See you next week!

Love, LOCPS xoxo
