Milton newborn photographer – the Caspar boys

Had another superb newborn portrait session here in my Milton studio.  Kind of funny, that of the almost 1900 newborns I’ve had the pleasure of photographing over the last 11 years, I think this is the first one that shares his dad’s name.  Hmph!  I’m named after my dad as well, and just never realized that not many people do that anymore.  Until Michael came in with Michael!   Big brother Dillon was so … loving and delicate with his new bro.  It’s SO groovy to see that!  It was simply an excellent shoot, and we were able to nail all the different portraits I love to give my customers.  Dad has a quick wit, and I like that, as I think a twisted sense of humour is an essential part to being an unbalanced human being!icon razz Milton newborn photographer   the Caspar boys Being perfectly balanced is boring, eh?

Here’s a few teasers from their great newborn session.

Congrats guys!

Milton Headshots – Jason’s new corporate portraits

As I continue to struggle in my blog updating, trying to decide amongst the hundreds of beautiful family, children and baby portraits I’ve shot here in my Milton studio … I simply decided to post some samples from a quick head-shot session I did with Jason.

Jason is part of WSI, bringing the area the absolute best in Digital Marketing Expertise.  Jason’s old headshot needed to be updated … don’t u think?icon razz Milton Headshots   Jasons new corporate portraits

I’ve been shooting corporate portraiture long before my 11 year expertise and specialty with newborns began.  I consider it SO important to have a really good representation of who you are.  A headshot should be warm, professional, and you have to look like a human being.  Approachable.  Competent.  Trust my experience to put you at ease, and capture you looking “like you” … We’re always our own worst critics, usually not thinking we can look good in pictures.  This could be because you’ve never been photographed by someone like myself.  Experienced.  Professional.  Approachable.  Competent.  Artistic.  (I don’t want to come across as full of myself … trust me , I’m not.  But I am extremely confident that my passion and 20+ years doing something I love does distinguish my work from most other photographers.)  Only $150 for the session, including a “properly” retouched image of your favourite shot to be used for your marketing initiatives. (or just for a really good FB profile picture)  Call me anytime: 905-878-7874

So, I’ve rambled on long enough … please forgive.icon razz Milton Headshots   Jasons new corporate portraits …and thanks for the patience with my blog updating.  I’ll be out of town on business for a few days, so a wee bit more patience might be needed.icon razz Milton Headshots   Jasons new corporate portraits Don’t forget to visit and “like” my studio FB page … occasionally I post different snippits up there.

Cheers!

Leino

side note:  I am VERY impressed with Jason’s lifestyle change that has had him lose over 30 lbs, and most importantly, has been achieved not solely through “diet” but with intense fitness training at FirePower here in Milton.  He’s simply an addict, but I promise to send butter tarts his way if he becomes unbearable.icon razz Milton Headshots   Jasons new corporate portraits

Milton, Oakville family photographer – the McKee bunch

Trying to sort through all the excellent family portrait sessions I’ve had the pleasure of capturing over the last few weeks.

Difficult to narrow down some selections to post.

At least I’m finally updating a little, eh? !!icon razz Milton, Oakville family photographer   the McKee bunch

The McKee’s were great!  The girls were beautiful, mom and dad had great smiles, and dad has an awesome accent that has never left him!  (and they loved contributing to my “awkward family portrait” art project … I adore families that share my sense of humour!)

They ordered one of my studio’s gorgeous canvas wrap enlargements of the family just in time for the holidays!  (and again, one of the reasons many families weren’t posted before the holidays was to keep the surprise gifts under wraps.  It was so difficult to not  post from every session I had here in studio!)

My initial grand opening promo for having just relocated my studio to Milton was such a success, I’ve decided to carry it over from January till March.

Family sessions for only $75 (regular $150) (based on availability)

1/2 price!!!

Call to book now before my open slots are all gone!

Milton newborn photographer – HAPPY NEW YEAR!

wow.

Crazy, whirlwind December …

After taking a few days off, I snuck in a few shoots right before new years including a great newborn session on the 31st … and now am getting mentally psyched for an awesome 2011!

I am genuinely sorry for not posting as much as I intended.

Ultimately the tardiness can be justified for the right reasons:  I was far busier than I anticipated after only having been open here in Milton since mid October. !!

icon smile Milton newborn photographer   HAPPY NEW YEAR!

So… this week, as my shooting schedule is less hectic, I’ll try and grab a few cool teasers and customer print choices from some of the sessions that led up to Christmas.

Today, I just snuck in to the studio to take stock, and plan the admin side of the week ahead …

I ended up fooling a bit with a mental image I had titled “dichotomy”

This is “pumpkin” Mattea.  A beautiful miracle I photographed here just a couple days ago.

A more official post from her session will follow in a day or two.icon smile Milton newborn photographer   HAPPY NEW YEAR!

In the mean time: Dichotomy.

…. we have good days, bad days.  Good weeks, bad weeks…. good years and difficult ones.  We need to remind ourselves that in the moments that seem to push us to the edge … that make us want to scream … there are the moments that balance it all out, where life is good.  Our blessings will ALWAYS outweigh the negatives we tend to focus on.  We have to remind ourselves of that, and refocus on the good.

have a groovy day y’all!

cheers,

leino

Milton newborn photographer – Welcome Evelyn

I’ve been quite busy with the pre-Christmas rushing … and behind on posting for that exact reason …

How could I not share a couple from Chandra and Greg’s newborn session here in Milton.

Evelyn was a hungry little munchkin, and bro Aiden was great while we tended to his little 6.75lb  sister!

It was an excellent shoot… that took a little patience, but was completely worth it!

Congrats guys!

I have to say that you are a most talented photographer. You have captured my child and his family in such moments that looking at these photos brought tears to my eyes.
Thank you for capturing these moments.
