A baby in natural sleeping state is still with a sense of quiet awareness. He’s not worried about the dried up tears or flakes of skin on it’s body. He no longer has to look to anything to give him a sense of fulfillment or satisfaction, because he is already there outside of mother and into the world. Real baby portraits because nothing in life is as perfect as imperfection. We should embrace our natural state.

Welcome to the world, baby Donovan.

Marco and Luca have been in front of our cameras for five years now and it’s hard to think that they’ll now be moving abroad with their family. It’s almost like parting with family after seeing these boys grow into such calm and intelligent souls. Attachment is hard to avoid when there is passion.
This isn’t goodbye… we’re so excited for the next chapter in these boys’ lives 🙂

Well, it’s holiday portrait time again and we’ve been busy with so many returning and new families. We’ve noticed the baby fashion game has really peaked.
It’s already been four years since we’ve been shooting portraits for the Bui family now… And how extremely fast (and handsome) these boys grow!

When we first met the Canios, there was only two… mama and papa.
Fast forward to now and six years later, and we’ve got two little pretty little gems in the mix.

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Another precious button in the world. Our swaddling skills are really exceptional by now 😉
Welcome to the world, baby Elise!

portrait | antoinette + brian

There never seems like there’s never enough time and that’s probably because it flies by so quickly. Antoinette and Brian reached out to us recently to do their five year anniversary portraits and it’s crazy because we feel like we just shot their wedding a few months ago.

Little Ethan was so patient with us and delivered so many winning poses and faces for us 🙂
Cheers to another ham in the world!

Little Valentina is growing up ever so fast! We took her to the museum for the first time and got to peek her curiosity a little. It was a delight seeing this little gal again and her wonderful parents 🙂

portrait | lucas + cooper

It’s been a quick three years since we’ve seen this handsome little dude! The last time we saw him was when he was still in his mum’s belly. It was like no time had past and I had known him all through these years. This kid is already a natural in front of the camera! Low and behold, the many faces of Lucas 😛
