Today, Beanie is four weeks old! I can’t believe how fast time is flying by! On June 15th, we arranged for a newborn photo session with Ashley from Ashley Eve Photography. Back in April, I was looking for someone who can take our maternity photos. I didn’t know of a good photographer, so I searched online to see what was available. I came across a forum and there were a few suggestions, so I looked up the various suggested photographers. I find that majority of the photographers’ styles are very staged and the photos end up looking very cheesy/unnatural. That’s when I came across Ashley’s site. She takes maternity, newborn, and family photos. Her main goal is to capture the little moments in her clients’ lives. Her portfolio showcases many lovely and breathtaking moments, and I fell in love with her style and technique instantly. Initially, we were going to take a set of maternity photos with her, but because of poor timing, we ended up going with the newborn session instead.
On the day of the photo session, Ashley arrived on time. Anthony and I didn’t know what to expect, but she put us at ease right away. She explained what she wanted to do/how she wanted to proceed. After getting to know us a bit more, she set up the area and started taking photos. She was also very good with Damien since he was a bit fuzzy. Here’s a few photos of her in action.
Ashley finished the session within 1.5 hours, and we were surprised and delighted to get the proofs within one week! The final photos look extremely good! So we ended up purchasing the entire gallery. We got all the photos within a week’s time, and to our surprise, we even got a small video to go with it! It was so nice! Here’s the finished video:
And here’re a few of our favourite photos:
He looked so small in the photos! He’s now grown quite a lot. We’re very happy with how the photos turned out, and we had such a wonderful time working with Ashley. If you’re in the Toronto area, and are looking for a photographer to capture your maternity, newborn or family photos, Ashley is definitely our recommendation!
