Kayla came for some 9 month old pictures, and brought her older siblings too. So we did some of all them together, and then some individually – because when you have four kids dressed up and looking nice at the same time, you better take advantage of it! Alyssa – the mom – is a cousin of ours, so we got to have a little chat in between smiles and laughs with the kids. That is one extra blessing in photography – even apart from getting the cute shots – is that I get to catch up, or get to know some pretty wonderful people while doing something fun! Yes, sometimes, I have to work super hard for smiles, and there are times, I won’t even get that “happy happy” look on a kiddo’s face- but that’s okay…because every child is different, and going through various stages of life – and I want to capture where they are now – and it’s all pretty beautiful! Enjoy these sweet foursome.Β All four of the kids l ChildrenLittle girl in white dress l ChildrenLittle boy in jeans & barefeet l ChildrenBaby girl in pink at 9 months l ChildrenGirls in white dresses & barefeet l ChildrenLittle girl with serious face and blue eyes l ChildrenReady to crawl - baby girl l ChildrenLittle boy in jeans on vintage cratel l ChildrenBaby girl with vintage bear l ChildrenBaby girl and blue eyes l Children

This brown eyed little guy was fun to work with! At three months old, he was pretty solid and strong – not to mention just adorable…Β and just look at his hair! His mom knew just how to quickly style it before we started taking these pictures. We just had fun taking some shots until Princeton was hungry and finished with the camera. πŸ™‚ He’s pretty loved and adored by his family, and I pray his life will become a testimony to many around!3 Month Old Boy in Vintage Crate l Baby Boy Session l Liz Heikoop PhotographyBrown Eyed Boy on Cream Blanket l Baby Boy Session l Liz Heikoop PhotographyHolding Daddy & MommyMommySnuggled with daddy l Baby Boy Session l Liz Heikoop Photography

With some of the family home from Israel for a few weeks, it was a perfect time for these guys to get their family pictures! We were able to use this perfect barn to capture their whole family and hide from the cold winds! This is my sister in law’s family, and really, their like another extended family to me as well. I’ve enjoyed their friendship over the past years a lot -such a warm and welcoming family. We had lots of fun keeping warm, with Trevor playing some music off his phone to keep us motivated and all happy :), blankets on the little ones, and later on, going to another warm spot to get some pictures of the grandparents with everyone. They were great sports, and we had some fun together. At the end, we dashed outside for five minutes to get a few pictures in the snow, and then it was warm up time. πŸ™‚ Enjoy these pictures of the winter and a great family.

After nanny-ing these great kids for a couple years, Rachel was heading back to school to do some further studies – but wanted some pictures to capture the love and fun they had together for so long. They also wanted to surprise their mom with some pictures for Christmas. They all adored Rachel, and it’s easy to see why; she put her heart into these kids, and was there for them in ways that went beyond any job. They were such a fun crazy crew – and we all had lots of fun tickling, running around, laughing, coaxing certain ones out of hiding,and capturing the girls in their poses! Moments to remember.

Since so many of their together memories began at McMaster – where they first met, then lived near there as a young family, had their sweet stillborn baby at the hospital at Mac and so much more, this is where they want to do annual their family pictures. I love when a location has such deep meaning to people and they use it for their pictures. So even when we were fighting the light a couple times for a certain spot, we had fun, chased the kids, and captured another year for this family.

I love when an adult gives a portrait session to their parents as a gift – just of them – for them! It is just as important to capture the strong love that they have for each other, as it is the fresh, new love when they were first together. Daughter Krissy, gave this session to her parents for Christmas, and we were also able to throw in her two girls for a few Grandparent/grandchildren shots, which I absolutely loved. After a friend of her’s recently lost a grandparent, they realized that they didn’t have any pictures of them together – and Krissy wanted to make sure she used the opportunity she had now. πŸ™‚ Treasure these times… life is short.
