Milton Ontario Newborn Photographer – sweet sweet Dilynn

Amy and Dave have the most gorgeous little newborn girl, and it was my honour being their newborn photographer here in Milton.  She rocked, and so did mom and dad!  Dave, for such a … big man, was SO tender and loving with his daughter.  It was SO beautiful to see! … She’s a lucky little girl!  Mom was glowing … ..  and I always get so encouraged when my newborn portraits bring tears to my customer’s eyes. (*blush*)

Here’s a few teasers from their newborn portrait session from this weekend.  Even though I’m so behind in posting promised teasers from recent portrait sessions, I simply had to share a couple of these.  There were, once again, SO many to choose from.  Their session landed them with over 100 of my signature newborn portraits.

My cool 1800sq.ft photo studio here in Milton is tailor made for these sessions … providing a relaxing, creative space to pull off these types of shots.

Newborn sessions are always $250, including all the invested patience and love, and the contact sheets showcasing all of the images I captured.   You walk out with them in hand!

Have a great remainder of the weekend y’all!  Again, congrats Amy and Dave!!

I also absolutely LOVE it when we sneak a smile out of them, when I capture my signature newborn portrait “baby in hand”!!

Hard to believe I’m coming up on 2000 newborns under 2 weeks old, photographed this way!!

I’m Back! – - Sweet Hayden – Waterdown Newborn Photographer

So … I’ve been off the radar for a little stretch.

Not that I haven’t been busy shooting, and providing Milton, Burlington, Oakville, Mississauga, Georgetown and surrounding communities with some pretty awesome newborn photography. (along with all the maternity, baby and family photography as well!)  :)  Buying a house here in Milton, packing and moving, plastering and painting, etc … has taken up most of my free time.  But I’m back, and hope to start updating regularly again.

So here’s a start:

Jaqueline and Jimmy ordered one of my groovy 24×30 framed newborn montages.  As I was working here on their order today, I realized this would be a perfect op to take a mini break and show off some of their newborn portraits.

Little Hayden was awesome.  Besides the gorgeous maternity portraits I shot for them a few weeks before this newborn shoot, we nailed the newborn experience here in Esto-Image’s spacious studio.  Maybe I’ll post a few from that session as well …

These are the most miraculous times of your life!  I’m honoured to have my portrait studio here in Milton, offering everyone in the GTA with my signature newborn portraits! Milton Newborn sessions are $250, including all the session time, an average of 100 of my signature portraits, and contact sheets you take home with you!  No pressure sales, no fine-print tactics.  You order what you want based on your budget and your decor!  Everyone gets the same passion here at Esto-Image!  Contact me for more info.

I have to get back to post-production, and prep for tomorrow’s sessions …

‘gnight everyone!

It was so awesome having a chance for you to photograph our family.Our kids still talk about that evening with you. We never would have done this with me feeling they way I was…but you made me and our family look great .These pictures will always be more then just photos on our wall, they will be the “moment in time” that our family shared together…we enjoyed it immensely! Thank you for giving that to us. And now we have an amazing memory of Montreal as well…Thank you Leino…keep creating:)

Milton baby photographer – my signature “head to toe” montage session!

I finally had my first baby “Head-2-Toe” session here in my Milton studio this last weekend!

I began offering my one-of-a-kind, 9 photo montages for babies between 7-12 months way back in 2004!!  I actually was one of the first in Canada to offer this kind of specialized baby portraiture.  Anyways, since I’ve only been open here in Milton for a few months, I have been anxiously anticipating my first baby to photograph in this signature style of mine.  Little Alexander was a superb model.  He never became “testy”, despite the teething and getting “eye-rub-tired” near the end.  Parents Christian and Maria were absolute gold with their cooperation, and we nailed the session, including some great family shots to boot!  Their framed 24×24 is going be a stunning focal point in their living room!  I had a blast putting it all together.

It’s not just a matter of shooting 9 pics and calling it quits.  The process requires creating a pool of awesome portraits, then narrowing them down to the nine “finalists” that then need a couple hours of my artistic postproduction … The finished enlargement provides a montage that truly represents your baby, in an aesthetic, beautiful way … a one-of-a-kind source of pride.

A beautiful investment … a timeless work of art that will only be more appreciated as the years tick by …

Despite the mandate for the “head-2-toe” montage, there are SO many gorgeous individual portraits taken in one of these sessions.  This is one of my personal favs…

Waterloo newborn photographer – Here’s PumpKin!!

Remember this maternity session from November last year?  Well I never posted the Christmas card they sent out, to keep the surprise intact for their friends over the holidays….

(for the same reasons I had to restrict the teaser posts from so many other superb family sessions)

backstory: Stephanie and Chad affectionately refer to Teaghan as “peanut”, and the bump was known as “pumpkin” throughout the whole pregnancy.  A fun play on words was in order for their card, and it was so well received!

Well …  little “Pumpkin” arrived over the holidays, and was officially my last portrait session of 2010!  My studio’s custom birth announcements from her newborn session are just going out, and Stephanie was “tickled” to have me post a teaser …

so … “Here’s Pumpkin!”

and here’s what their custom 5×7 newborn birth announcement came out like.  Every one I make is a one-of-a-kind card … making for an original, super way to let friends and family know you have a newborn at home!

I had many families send out custom cards from their portrait sessions.  I always love the crazy production time of December, as there are SO many fun shots strewn everywhere in my production area.

Congrats again Steph and Chad!  Little Mattea is as sweet as they come!!
