Maternity and Newborn

Hello to you! I am trying to get caught up on blogging but it is not easy. Between printing in the darkroom and shooting and printing and developing film and printing . .  and my kids and house and husband and self . . . blogging can get lost in the shuffle. I do have a some session books to make and these I make digitally so voila - files to share!!

One of my most popular offerings is the Maternity and Newborn session. You get a slightly reduced fee for booking both at the same time and in exchange you get a maternity session at the end of your pregnancy and a newborn session just after baby arrives. We then have one proofing meeting where we review all the proofs from both sessions.

This session was a wonderful example and this beautiful (!!) Mother has agreed to let me use the entire session book as a sample. I am thrilled and the book has already been sent to print and as soon as it gets back I will share it with you all.

In the meantime here are a few sample photos.

This type of shot was requested and I was happy to oblige.

I did have to put my own Holga spin on it though. ;)

Hey it's a baby!! Welcome to the world handsome man.



In  few weeks I'll share the entire book which will also be a nice chance to see an entire session.

Blog Awards

Somehow I was nominated for a Blog Award . . . so if you are reading this text (and I know that you are) a couple of clicks lets you vote for me. I wanna win the big money . . . or the car . . . or the honour . . . or whatever the prize is. ;)

In honour of the honour of being nominated . . . and since I know I'll likely get a bunch of hits over the next two weeks . . . and since I was going to anyway . . .  I will blog a bunch of photos today.

Newborns are like Jello!

I only have a few spots left for Christmas and I typically book out 4-6 weeks.

The exception is a newborn. A newborn is only a newborn for a very short time, a few weeks at best.

I can always fit in a newborn. They are like Jello - there is always room for Jello.

If you call me when you are in labour or shortly after - I promise you I will fit you in with 10 days. This does not apply after your baby is three weeks old.

Hint: A session makes a really really good baby shower present. ;)
