I promised blogs, and blogs you will get! 😛 If you missed my Instagram stories yesterday, I was asking folks what kind of blogs they wanted to see more of and the answer was a mish mash of pretty much everything, from pets, to cake smashes, families, babies… but mostly NEWBORNS! So, I will be giving you ALL of that (there will be a pet blog a little later today), but for now, I will start with Miss Briar. Because I was honoured to watch Briar grow for the entire first year of her life, in this blog, I am able to show you maternity, newborn, 3 month milestone, sitter milestone, AND cake smash! From before she was born, I photographed her in her Mama’s tummy. When she arrived just before Christmas, she became my very last newborn of the year and I got to have some fun with a few Christmas sets! Throughout her first year, watching her grow and seeing her little personality come through was the sweetest thing (because as you’ll see, she really is a doll!) And finally, the set colours that her Mama requested for her first birthday portraits made my heart happy (lilac and aqua are my favourite!)
If you are interested in booking a studio session (great for newborns, babies, and birthday portraits), I do have some last minute availability in BARRIE on weekdays in May between 10am-2pm (CONTACT ME for exact dates).
If you are located in CALLANDER or NORTH BAY, I will have availability in my temporary studio while my permanent space is being built beginning the second week of June, weekdays between 9:30am-2pm. Click here for NEWBORN PRICING. Click here for CREATIVE PORTRAIT PRICING (which encompasses everything else). 🙂
And now, here is Briar’s first year! Her Mama came to see me in the Fall, while the leaves were bright and beautiful on the trees (I can’t wait to photograph families on the Fall Colours in the North Bay area this year!)
When I found out that Briar was on her way, I couldn’t WAIT to meet her! I photographed her big sister as a newborn when I first began my business, so I was honoured to have been trusted to photograph another baby for this family:
I didn’t think it was possible for this baby to get cuter, but every time she visited my studio that just kept happening… lol When she was about 3-4 months old, she visited my studio again:
Between the 6-9 month mark is usually when babies start to sit unassisted. This is when we capture the milestone during their “Sitter Sessions”…
And finally, the celebration session! Briar’s parents requested a cake smash for her first birthday portraits, using lilac and aqua colours. I love working with parents to make their visions come true for their little one’s very special first birthday session! When you book with me, you’ll be sent “booking forms”, which will capture all of your information as well as your vision (both visually and what you hope to DO with your portraits when you’ve received them back) so that I can help to make the whole experience as fabulous for you as possible!
Thanks so much to this family for trusting Raindance Photography to capture Briar’s first year and beyond!
