Erika and Chris' Family Session - Ella Marie Photography - Waterloo, Kitchener, Baden, Ontario Family Photographer

I love the fall season!  I love wearing my boots, my scarves, pumpkins in general, and I definitely bring out the fall scented candles and make my house smell like Bath and Body Works.  

I love the leaves too, but not nearly as much as this little guy did!  Seriously, he LOVED them.  He held onto a leaf pretty much at all times during our session, and was fascinated by it twirling around in his tiny fingers.  And throwing them around in the air was just magical to him!

He was such a sweetheart, so happy to play and have his photo taken, and his parents were super doting on him, and happy to throw some leaves around too.  Erika and Chris are such a lovely couple, and I absolutely loved this session!

Meaghan and Kyle's Family Session - Ella Marie Photography - Waterloo, Kitchener, Baden, Ontario Family Photographer

I love shooting outdoors.  I love playing with light, and running around a location to shoot from the perfect angle.  I love the challenge of a natural environment, and I also love the beauty and simplicity of it.

So, when Meaghan contacted me to ask if we could do a family session with her brand new baby, I was pretty excited!  Her little guy was only two weeks old, and he was such a good model for me!  We did some more traditional posed newborn shots, but we also did more candid style family shots too, and he made amazing eye contact with the camera.  

Meaghan and Kyle are such a warm, relaxed couple and were already wonderful parents - thank you for choosing me to capture your very first family session!

Bennett's Lifestyle Newborn Session - 4 Weeks New - Ella Marie Photography - Waterloo, Kitchener, Baden, Ontario Newborn Photographer

This little guy is the most smiley newborn I have photographed.  Ever.

He was SUCH a sweetheart, and was so content that he gave massive smiles for his mommy and daddy, even grinning away in his sleep!  He loved being cuddled, and was so curly in his parents' arms.

 It was such a pleasure to photograph this brand new family of three, and I can't wait to see what a happy little guy Bennett grows into!

Owen's Lifestyle Newborn Session - 11 Days New - Ella Marie Photography - Waterloo, Kitchener, Baden, Ontario Newborn Photographer

I have actually known this couple for almost 12 years, as we were all in the same program at university together!  I was so honoured to be chosen to capture their brand new arrival in his first days of life in their home.  

Owen was an easy-going baby, who didn't make a single peep throughout our entire session!  As long as he was being cuddled, he was happy and sleeping.  Big sis offered up lots of cuddles to her baby brother too, and is a silly, lovely girl, who loved the camera and hamming it up for me!

Beautiful light, beautiful baby, and beautiful family made for some incredible images for this lifestyle session.  I loved every second.

Adelaine's Lifestyle Newborn Session - 11 Days New - Ella Marie Photography - Waterloo, Kitchener, Baden, Ontario Newborn Photographer

It's no secret that I love babies, and these lifestyle sessions are such a fantastic way to photograph new life, and a new family dynamic!  Big bro was such a ham for the camera, and was nothing but super sweet for me.  Mommy and daddy were so laid back and happy, and capturing moments with their brand new family of four was so much fun!
