I giggle with excitement every time I get a message from Lauren asking me to capture their family. Over two years ago, (feels like we’ve been friends for … ever) reached out during my Limited Edition Sessions at Christmas. Her sweet daughter Ava was born to model. Her personality and facial expressions were priceless and continue to be exactly that… priceless.
This year, their family welcomed their baby boy Carter. His newborn session was a dream… his easy going temperament and smiles for miles had us melting and my ovaries hurting!
With toddlers, we prefer to start our baby sessions with the family pictures first. This allows us to get the very best from Ava (or any toddler) that walks into our studio. This portion usually takes up to 30 minutes and then they are free as a bird. The remainder of the session is approximately two hours which is often very challenging for a toddler to stay in the studio. Depending on the family, some choose to have a family member pick up their oldest, or some families will have Dad will bring them to the park near the studio or McDonald’s since it’s a short walk from the Studio and a great indoor option as it has a play area.
In total our session lasted just over two and a half hours and his parents left with memories they will treasure for a life time. Thank you Lauren and Ryan for trusting me time and time again with your beautiful family! I can’t wait to capture them as they grow!
Here’s what they both had to say after their experience with C’est l’Amour Photography:
“Joelle was a pleasure to work with, we had lots of fun, she made us relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera while capturing great moments. We were absolutely blown away with the results! Thanks again for providing a first class service. ” – Ryan
“We have used Joëlle several times with her mini shoots and have always been super satisfied with her professionalism and turn around time. Most recently we were fortunate enough to book her for our newborn shoot. I cannot put into words how happy we are with the level of service she provides. Her attention to every single detail is second to none and we couldn’t be happier. She provides a relaxed atmosphere and thinks of things you wouldn’t even consider, especially when you’re in the thick of the newborn fog. She was able to tame my three year old (not easy) and capture beautiful shots of my family that we will be able to cherish forever. I am an uber harsh critic and would recommend her a million times over!!!” – Lauren
