Rosie Turns One!

It truly feels like it was just yesterday when I was photographing Rosie as a newborn baby. She has now turned one, proving that time flies and people are right when they tell you to enjoy every moment when they are little. It has been a gift to watch her grow, from the maternity session of Rosie in her Mum’s belly, to her newborn and 6 month old session, and now she’s gone and turned one on me! I can’t wait to continue to capture and watch her personality blossom!

Love, LOCPS xo’s

Turning One is so much Fun!

Sometimes when we have photography sessions with children shyness becomes a factor.  Fortunately both Jeff and I are photographers and there is usually one of us that becomes the "chosen one" with kids, and it's usually me...*cough*.  Actually it's about 50/50, but I like to tell myself I am more likeable than Jeff! When Parker came into our studio for his one year session he definitely played shy, but in the end we both won him over- he liked me the most, and we captured some really amazing shots of him. This is the first one year old session in a while where we didn't do a cake smash and had some fun with balloons instead.  We had such a great time and all of us ended up in giggles- which is always my favourite!

Hailey's Perfect Princess Party!

Want to know the best way to make your princess feel like an actual princess on her 5th birthday? Do what Hailey’s Mom did and invite 3 of your princess’ best pals, get them all dolled up as their favourite princess, take them to get their nails done, and then off to a photographer to have their own time to shine in the spotlight!  We had so much fun with Belle, Snow White, The Ice Queen, and Queen Elsa! I had an absolute blast photographing these giggly girls and you can see just how much fun they had in the photos. I really loved using our new bedhead background for this and it gives these princess’ the regal look they deserve! Not only were we able to take photos during Hailey’s party, but with some teamwork each girl got to go home with her very own photo, you can’t get much more special than that! This is one of the best parties we have been a part of and I am taking notes…. my daughter’s 6th birthday is coming up…. I guess I better get on that! First, I need to vacuum more sparkles that have managed to travel all over the studio, wish me luck!

Love, LOCPS xoxo

P.S.- Is your princess having a birthday? Allow us to help make her dreams come true!

2017 Christmas Mini Sessions in all their glory!

The Christmas rush is settling down and it has been one fantastic whirlwind! We saw the familiar faces of our amazing clients and happily met so many wonderful new families!

Although I am not much of a cold weather lover (I am wearing 4 layers as I write this) I absolutely love Christmas.  It’s the one holiday I really get into. I love to decorate for the season and I get really into Christmas movies.  The Grinch, Elf and  A Christmas Carol are on constant rotation with the kids and Love Actually and The Holiday are my guilty pleasures in the evenings! A hot beverage, great book or movie, fuzzy warm blanket and a roaring fire is the epitome of bliss for me this time of year. It is also Christmas Card time! We appreciate that others put as much care and effort into their greeting cards as we do and feel honoured that they use us to capture those moments in time! I can’t wait to see what some of our clients do with our images and the amazing cards they will create! Every year we do something a little different with our Christmas cards, we try to make them humorous and light-hearted.  I have just completed this years and come back next week to see my masterpiece.  In the meantime check out some of our previous cards here.

Check out some examples of this years awesome shots!

 

I would love more Christmas movie suggestions, what are some of your favourite seasonal films?  Leave a comment below!

Emily Partied it up with a Mini Mouse Themed 1st Birthday Cake Smash!

There were rumours in the air that Emily was turning one and having an epic Mini Mouse themed party.  So naturally we, Amy and Jeff at Left of Centre Photography, decided to crash Emily's first birthday party. We arrived just as the adorable Emily was finishing up her meal and we feared that the party was coming to an end. That wasn't happening on our watch, so we knew it was time to bring out the cake! I have to say, it was one of the best parties I have ever crashed, mini mouse has always been a favourite character of mine, and with cake-a-plenty we were in our element.  So was Emily! We knew we had found the coolest party girl after discovering that she was still going strong, even after missing a couple of naps! We had such a great time photographing Emily's cake smash and we loved that Mom and Dad got in there with their mouse ears on!

Here are some of our faves from our session with Party Girl Emily! -

6 months and loving it!

I had a great time photographing this little cutie in my home studio. I love the ability to change backgrounds on a whim and have a look based on my or my subjects mood. Capturing JJ's personality took me back to when my son was 6 months old. They both have the same intense seriousness that, when broken with a smile, it completely changes their face. At almost 8 years old it has been a while since my son was newly sitting, exploring and starting to crawl. This session reminded me to slow down and embrace and remember where he was, where he is and the places he will go. I love that my job always gives me time to remember my own journey in life while giving me the opportunity to capture memories for others to look back on! How lucky am I?

Here are some of my favourite moments photographing JJ!

Until next week, take care and look through some old photos, you never know where it will take you!

The Gift of Life

I sat down many times to write this post. I was going to talk about how some women absolutely love being pregnant, while others, not so much. I wrote and deleted my post several times.  I looked at the images posted below for inspiration and realized nothing could be said. Because these photographs show nothing but love; and love is different for everyone. Gifts come in many packages, some big and some small. One of the best gifts in life is that of a life itself.

The surprise for my readers, in my next post, will be what gender the baby is! Any guesses?

We have a new Background- Part 2

The rumours are true, we have a second new scenic backdrop.  I recently told you all about our new Starry Night Backdrop, which I love and Jeff may hate because I have put him to work making and remaking props to go with it. I decided to buy a few props to go with the second backdrop (you're welcome, Jeff).  I can't wait to use it, so if you're about to have a baby and like the look of this, give me a call and we can get some amazing images of your newborn, or toddler, but not your husband. That would be weird. Check out our new, totally awesome background.  Savannah was nice enough to pose for me but stay tuned for the lucky person who gets to use it first!
