Meet our little Eli Promise

Happy Tuesday everyone, and yes it’s a happy one for me because I get to introduce to you our newborn son, Eli Promise…  After 28 hours of labour (I know… crazy right?), Eli was born weighing 7lbs 15oz.  He’s only 8 days old and proving to be already such a cool kid!  As our friend Femi wrote on my facebook wall: “the globe’s in need of a makeover. it needs an Eli. it certainly needs a Promise. can share your excitement, as Eli arrives.”  And he’s finally here…

Here’s just a few photos of our little guy at 3 days and 6 days!

Justin and I want to give a big shout out to the nurses and doctors at the Guelph Genereal Hospital.  They were so amazing during our stay there.  We also want to thank so many of you for your lovely comments and for loving Eli already…

Guelph Baby Photography | Ravyn Leigh

Let me introduce you to baby Ravyn Leigh born to our lovely couple Melynda & Calvin.  I was so excited when Melynda wrote me to tell me “I successfully delivered Ravyn Leigh” on May 11th!  They wanted to take some photos of her as soon as they could, since newborns change SO quickly!

Here are a few photos from our visit with their new little girl who was only 3 days NEW!!!

We’re so happy for your new little family 🙂

Guelph Baby Photography | Baby Leah

It’s baby season!  Everywhere I look there’s a newborn… I love it!  If you follow my blog, you already know about Miss Leah Joy Vienna.  Her parents, Chris & Christine, are some of our best friends and we are so happy to celebrate their new family with these special photos!  Enjoy this beautiful life 🙂

I have no words for most of these photos.  She’s just too adorable!

Daddy’s going to have to try real hard to resist these little eyes… ha!
Only 11 days after giving birth and Christine is looking mighty fab.  Yes you are, my friend!

Every baby needs this shot for their album!

LOVE!
ohhhhh little hands & feet… you just make me melt!

We laughed so hard at her little toe… apparently just like dads’!

I have to finish with my favorite shot… Momma was trying to calm Leah down and it was just too precious!

We love you Baby Leah 🙂

am I ready?

The days are counting down quickly to the arrival of our little Eli, which will turn our family of 2 into a family of 3.  I have to admit, I have complete mixed emotions about this ‘event’ on a daily basis.  I have moments of freaking out “EVERYTHING’s GOING TO CHANGE” to “I CAN’T WAIT to meet him”.  Here’s a question I’ve been asking myself a lot lately:  How can I better prepare myself (emotionally/mentally) for this baby?  I know everyone tells me “you’ll never feel ready”… but I’m wondering if there are any unique ways that helped some of you mother’s out there prepare yourselves for your first baby.  I’d love to hear your stories!

On another note… Last Saturday, Chris & Christine had their baby girl Leah Joy Vienna (isn’t that a great name?!) and I can tell that even since meeting her something inside of me got really excited for Eli.

Here’s a few pics of baby Leah Joy whose not even a day old!

More of Leah to come soon…

Guelph Baby Photography | carter : little ones

First – THANKS to EVERYONE who’s been commenting.  You have until Tuesday evening, so keep it up!

Second – if you’re reading this and have no idea why I’m thanking everyone.  Go to my post on CANS FOR COMMENTS.

Alright… now onto Carter. What a precious little guy – 2.5 weeks old.  I was telling his mommy Kariann, that I don’t know the last time I held a newborn.  It’s been a very very    l  o  n  g    time.

You should know that Carter came about 3 weeks too early 🙂 but he weighed 6lbs 8oz.  So he was perfect! This is the story: Aaron and Kariann were having a nice romantic weekend away in Niagara Falls (they wanted to have some time for each other before the baby came) and right in the middle of that weekend away… Carter decided it was time to meet the world!
Seeing that they were 1.5hours away from home, Aaron drove as fast as he could to get back to Guelph in time to have the baby (you’ll have to ask him how long it actually took them to get here)… let’s just say it was just like the movies! LOL!!
And after only 4 short hours of labour – Carter Aaron was born!

Here are few of my favourites:

Carter was very sleepy throughout his shoot 🙂

I used my two new lenses and loved them both.  The 50mm 1.2f lens is an allstar!!!! The 100mm 2.8f macro is so wonderful for these beautiful closeup detailed shots…  mmmmm yummy!

the happy family
