Newborn Photoshoot - Baby girl - Calgary and Airdrie Newborn Photographer

Sweet little Olivia was born at 9lbs 1oz! She has 2 older brothers, in fact I have met Olivia’s parents when her middle brother was born for his newborn photoshoot! It is so nice to see my newborn clients all grown up! Olivia did so good during her newborn photoshoot, she was sleepy, calm and I just loved her chubby cheeks, such a yummy baby girl. Her older brother was so worried that I would take her home, he kept reminding me throughout the photoshoot that Olivia is there to stay and NOT to be taken anywhere lol. World, meet beautiful Olivia!

When I have met Maria and Drew they didn't know if they were having a girl or a boy as they were keeping it a secret (you can see Maria's maternity session here), but they had already picked out the name for their baby - Lennon - inspired by the legend - John Lennon.  Beautiful Lennon was so good to me during her newborn photoshoot, she gave me the biggest smiles and I just wanted to take her home with me, such a sweetheart! Welcome to the world sweet Lennon!

Newborn Photoshoot - Russian Inspired Photoshoot - Baby Boy - Roma - Calgary Newborn Photographer by Mila Boekestyn

Newborn Photoshoot - Russian Inspired Photoshoot - Baby Boy - Calgary Newborn Photographer

I was so excited when Roma's mom - Lila contacted me for a newborn photoshoot as she has specifically requested to have some of the Russian heritage inspired photos.  Both myself and Lila have originally come from Russia to Canada, so it was dear to my heart to nail this photoshoot and to make sure I represent!  I have previously done Russian inspired photos with little girls (wrapped them up as matryoshka (aka Russian doll)) and took photos of them wrapped up with a bunch of matryoshkas lined up (you can see this image here), however I was at loss as to what to do for a newborn baby boy.  So I started thinking back to my childhood, what did I like to do, what movies did I like to watch... and I have remembered one specific movie that I have watched over and over again about four youngsters who became heroes in the Russian Civil War and were at the end of the movie honored and acknowledged by the Red Army called "The Elusive Avengers" (aka "Neulovimie Mstiteli"). As soon as I thought of this movie, I was on a mission to get that special Russian Civil War inspired hat called "Budenovka". I have contacted one of my vendors in Russia and asked her to make me that specific hat, which she did.  Once I got the hat, the rest of the picture just came together in my head - I need an antique horse, baby in a basket and a fur - and voila - Russian Inspired photo is ready to be made.  While waiting for Roma to be born, I have visited the local Russian produce store called Yummy Russia, where I often buy some yummy Russian food and they were selling a pair of boxing gloves in Russian flag colors with RUSSIA written all over them (those decorative boxing gloves that people usually hang on their front mirror in a car), right there and then I had another idea for a Russian inspired shot - little Russian boxer! I got the gloves, ordered a little blue overall and was waiting for my Russian little model to be born!  World, meet handsome Roma!

Newborn Photo Session - Benjamin - Calgary Newborn Photographer by Mila Boekestyn

Newborn Photo Session - Calgary Newborn Photographer

Sweet little Benjamin was so good to me, slept through most of the photoshoot and gave me some really sweet smiles, he simply rocked his newborn photo session. I have met Benjamin's parents over a year ago, when I photographed Ben's big sister Avery for her newborn session, which you can see here and later Avery's Cakesmash session, which you can see here.  Avery is such a good big sister, she was tenderly hugging her little brother and giving him little kisses. I just can't wait to photograph Benjamin again for his First Birthday / Cakesmash photoshoot next year. World, meet handsome Benjamin!

Newborn Photoshoot - Anastasia - Airdrie Newborn Photographer by Mila Boekestyn

Newborn Photoshoot - Airdrie and Calgary Newborn Photographer

I have met Anastasia's parents for the first time when they have hired me to photograph their first daughter's Alexandra's cakesmash session last summer (check it out here). I remember when I walked into their house I accidentally saw the pregnancy test which said "baby #2" :-).  Less then a year later, I am back with my camera for "baby's #2" newborn photoshoot. Meet beautiful Anastasia everyone!  She was just a little shy of being 2 months old during this session. I typically do my newborn photoshoots in the first 2 weeks of baby's life (as newborns are super flexible and sleep longer and deeper and generally not bothered by all the posing that the photographer does...as they get older they are more alert and harder to pose) so I didn't know what to expect when I came to photograph Anastasia.  I wrapped her into one of my wraps, and she happily fell asleep and slept almost the entire time!  I couldn't believe my luck!!!  And her big sister Alexandra was super cooperative as well (which is usually another unknown variable when working with siblings younger than 2 years old), she was gentle and happy to be photographed with her little sister.  I was super pleased with how this session has turned out and the icing on the cake is that one of the images of the two girls that I have submitted for an International Baby Photography Contest, won a baby award!  How awesome is that?!

Newborn Photoshoot - Mighty Maxwell - Calgary Newborn Photographer by Mila Boekestyn

Newborn Photoshoot - Mighty Maxwell - Calgary Newborn Photographer

Sweet little Maxwell was born a month early and was weighting only 4 pounds. He had to spend a few weeks in the NICU to grow bigger and stronger, which he did!  We had this newborn photoshoot close to Maxwell's original due date and he was already at 5 pounds.  Being so tiny, most of my newborn outfits were too small on Mighty Maxwell, but he was very happy being wrapped most of the session and slept all through it.  His big sister Violet, who is only 1.5 years old herself was super sweet and helpful, she was very gentle with little Maxwell and was happy to take pictures with him.  Welcome to the world dear Maxwell!

Newborn Session - Liam - Airdrie and Calgary Photographer by Mila Boekestyn

Newborn Session - Airdrie and Calgary Photographer

This sweet little guy loved to be wrapped, he just wanted to be warm and cozy. Liam was 12 days young during his newborn session and has actually lost his umbilical cord right at the beginning of the photoshoot to the great joy of his parents.  His big sister Macaylah was so gentle and caring, I can just tell that she will be a great helper to her parents with little Liam.  Liam's dad is a big football fan and since the Super Bowl was just a few weeks away, of course we did some football inspired shots and Liam has rocked his newborn session. What a perfect little model. World, meet Liam Miguel.

Newborn Photoshoot - Benjamin - Airdrie and Calgary Photographer by Mila Boekestyn

Newborn Photoshoot - Airdrie and Calgary Photographer

I have met Benjamin's parents Lisa and Danny for the first time when Ella ( Benjamin's sister ) has turned 1 year old and we had a really fun cakesmash session (you can find this session on my blog). I was so happy when Lisa called me again to capture Ella's 2nd Birthday and we took some amazing Fall family portraits right outside Lisa's and Danny's house and at that time I found out that Lisa is expecting her second baby!  Here he is - little Benjamin rocking his Newborn photoshoot and Ella is being so careful and so gentle with him. When I do sibling shots, I am very aware of a sibling's age and possible poses we can try to attempt of them together.  The "bean bag" pose of siblings together, is not something I would do with very young children as this requires certain patience and maturity on older sibling's part. Ella has absolutely rocked this pose - she was so gentle, loving and caring with her little brother, it was heart warming to see. Ben is a lucky guy to have a big sister like Ella! World, meet  Benjamin!

Newborn photoshoot - Mahaan by Mila Boekestyn

Newborn Photoshoot - Calgary photographer

Mahaan was 2 days shy of being 1 month young during his newborn photoshoot. Although I usually shoot newborn sessions during the first 2 weeks of baby's life, I made an exception with Mahaan as he has arrived to this world almost 4 weeks earlier than expected as he just couldn't wait to meet his beautiful parents. Mahaan was awake in the beginning of the photoshoot, looking straight at the camera and making all kinds of cute little faces.  His big furry brother Rambo, was beside him the whole time - making sure nothing wrong is happening to him.  Welcome to the world Mahaan.

Just over a month ago I have photographed Aubree's mom for her maternity photoshoot and here she is, a beautiful little Autumn flower - Aubree.  She was so good to me during her newborn pictures, slept almost the entire session and didn't mind her brother rocking her back and forth in the little stroller.  Her brother Samuel just turned 1 year old a few days after Aubree was born, this is one busy family.  Welcome to the world beautiful Aubree!

Faith's - Newborn Photoshoot by Mila Boekestyn

Newborn photoshoot - Calgary Photographer

I have met little Faith when she was already over 7 weeks old - surrounded by her large and loving family (uncles, aunts and cousins, family friends and of course her parents) and showered in love. I was a little bit nervous going to this newborn photoshoot as my newborn sessions are usually during the first 2 weeks of baby's life, in this case Faith was close to being 2 months old, however she was absolutely fine - slept almost the entire time and didn't mind all the noise and laughter and chatter around her.  World, meet beautiful Faith!

Nathan was just over 2 weeks young and he was super cute.  He slept the entire time and was giving me tons of cute little smiles. Nathan was born a few weeks prior to his due date during the Stampede time and of course I HAD to incorporate some of the cowboy outfits for his newborn pictures. Little cowboy was too excited and couldn't wait to meet his parents and everyone else.  World, meet Nathan!

Mya was just over 2 weeks young during our photoshoot and she was so good to me - she slept the entire time and was a happy baby giving me tons of sweet little smiles. Her dad came in from work during his lunch hour just to take a few pictures with his sweet little darling.

Brooklyn by Mila Boekestyn

Brooklyn was very comfy in her mommy's belly and came in over a week late into this world on July 5th.  She was only 4 days young during the photoshoot and was over 8 lbs!  I just loved her chubby cheeks and her back rolls, she was a joy to work with - slept almost the entire session and was super cooperative. World, meet beautiful Brooklyn!

Prairie by Mila Boekestyn

What a beautiful name for a beautiful girl!  Being 10 days young, Prairie rocked her session.  I just love all the expressions I was able to capture - she gave me smiles, looked at me very seriously, yawned and even pulled her tongue out - what a funny little girl. World, meet Prairie!

Natalie by Mila Boekestyn

Natalie was so good to me!  Her mommy did such a great job keeping her awake the whole morning, so that she could be sleepy for me.  There was lots of purple and pink in this photoshoot as those are her parents' favourite colours. Natalie has 3 furry siblings and one of them - Molly was so adorable, she thinks that Natalie is her own baby and was giving her kisses and love.  Natalie was almost 2 weeks young during this photoshoot, she was happy, smily and was such "girly girl"!  World, meet Natalie!

Shifaan by Mila Boekestyn

Shifaan was 9 days young during his photoshoot, and was a very cooperative baby - he slept throughout most of the session, just waking up for some feeding.  Shifaan's parents have mentioned that he was up all night prior to the photoshoot, so I think I got super lucky :-). I can't wait to see Shifaan again for the "Sitter" and "Cakesmash" session later this year.  World, meet Shifaan.

Navaiyah by Mila Boekestyn

Little Navaiyah was born on May 10th, 3 months after her daddy - Nav has lost his battle with cancer. Nav and Simmie have met while pursuing an MBA degree in University of Calgary when Nav has accidentally bumped into Simmie in the hall and fell in love from the first sight. Nav was Simmie's best friend and one true love. He was full of life and laughter - he had a passion for a stand-up comedy, hockey (huge fan of the local team - Calgary Flames), the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and of course adored his little family. When Nav's first daughter Aradhana was born, he was fully there for her from the moment she has opened her eyes "He was born to be a father" - Simmie said.  We tried to incorporate Nav into this photoshoot as much as we could. Continuing with a theme from Simmie's and Nav's engagement pictures of jeans and black hoodies, Nav's collection of the UFC belts, Flames jerseys, his wedding bands, even his Superman sweatshirt. I could feel Nav's spirit and love in the air, through Aradhana's affection, love and kisses, Simmie's stories and memories to Navaiyah's little smiles in her sleep, Nav was definitely there looking down proudly at his beautiful family.

Ira by Mila Boekestyn

I have met this sweet little girl - Ira the other week.  She was 12 days young and was so cute!  I had lots of newborn boys this year and I have really missed photographing a little girl. Ira was born in the spring, so I thought the Spring theme with tons of flowers is the way to go.  World, meet your newly bloomed flower - Ira.

Saajan by Mila Boekestyn

Saajan came into this world earlier then expected and was right away surrounded by love. His big brother Arjun was very gentle with him, although he is barely 2 years old himself. This is another busy household with 2 young boys. World, meet Saajan!
