A first baby on the way for this soon-to-be new family.  Brenda came by yesterday to capture this awesome time in their lives..though I think with all the illness this pregnancy has caused, they are super excited to get this little man  OUT!

I truly believe that all pregnant women have this just awesome beauty about them.  I don’t know if it’s their smiles that beam a little more than normal, if it’s the glow in their skin, the health of their hair…I honestly don’t know the “it” factor, but all pregnant woman are gorgeous.  THIS mom…is no acception and as a matter of fact, should be a maternity model!  This first picture…well if this isn’t “sexy” in the world of pregnancy, than I don’t know what is!


Requested by mom 🙂

Not only is mom absolutely stunning, but dad is gorgeous too!  This little girl – I can’t wait (CANT WAIT) to meet her!

This idea was given to me actually by another mom at one of my maternity sessions (who I didn’t blog)…and thanks to her idea, I used it again with Kerry…and just love the result!

…and of course we can’t miss out on the big sister Brook!  She is an absolute sweet heart so excited to meet her baby sister!

Due in just 3 and a half weeks, Adria is just glowing!  She looks fabulous and is so excited to meet her little boy – Thomas! I have a secret – I am excited to meet him too!!!!

A wonderful at-home water birth is planned for the arrival of little Thomas.  How much more relaxing and awesome an entry into the world can that be!

So although my website says that the ultimate time for a maternity session is in the 7th month…it really all depends on mom and how she feels, how she thinks she look, how comfortable she is.  I have had moms come in the week they are due…so don’t hesitate to call me even if you are a day away from your due date! If your up for it, and I have a space open – I will do what I can to get you in 🙂  This really is such a beautiful time in the lives of women…and should be captured for years to come!

I could not have asked for a better turn out with such a WONDERFUL AMAZING group of photographers!  Andrea, Katie, Tracy, Ashley, Annette, and Stefanyie – you were all awesome!  Thank for you the laughs, the patience and the great weekend!  I hope you had  a wonderful time and got some really great shots!  This is my first workshop and I was inspired by my husband to have one due to the amount of questions posed to me on certain shots that I take and since I LOVE to share, I took his advice and held a Bellies-To-Babies workshop where I could share tips, tricks and secrets to a successful maternity and newborn session!  This first shot was thanks to our wonderful first model of the weekend – Katie!

Thank you to Ashley – our other beautiful mom who volunteered her time and let 7 of us photograph her for a few hours.  Ahsley – you look stunning! This is my favourite picture of the day! 

Sunday we moved on to two beautiful 7-day-old baby boys! Meet Mr. Broxton (how cool is THAT name!).  He was absolutely perfect! He made my job easy and left us with no laundry (after 3 hours of photographing him!).  Arli – I can’t thank you enough (on behalf of all of us) for sharing your new baby with us!  He is perfect – and has the cheeks to die for! 🙂

I call this “find the baby” LOL!!!!  We all got together with the AC-DC loving baby Broxton…and a few props 😉

After little “B” we had the chance to meet baby Nolan!  Another 7-day-old ball of SWEETNESS!  Here is Tracy catching beautiful mom and baby…

Annette getting little Nolan while haning in a pod that Stefanyie wanted to try out 🙂  Poor dad – held up all 7 pounds of this little guy – sounds easy but try holding a 7-pound-weight for 10 minutes without moving!

End result of that picture:

Thank you models and parents for allowing us all to capture this time and ‘practise’ with you and your little bundles.  Your bellies were perfect, your babies were amazingly perfect and we all had such a GREAT time!!!  Thank you Photographers for participating in my first workshop!  It was such a success that I am definately going to do this again!  If you are interested in learning more about maternity and newborn photography and need somewhere to start (or a start to furthering your already-existing portfolio) please contact me and let me know !  I will probably be holding another workshop either the May – or in the summer!  Also stay tuned to my site or the sites of the other photographers for a possible trash-the-dress outdoor – waterfall session!  Will most likely take place on a weekday this summer! If you are interested – please send me an email.  tkinch@delicateimpressions.ca

I feel like a child on Christmas morning! I’m so excited!!! I brought home my new baby yesterday…the Nikon D700 ! And to join her…the new Nikon 14-24mm f2.8 lens AND the 70-200 VR f2.8 lens…and OMGoodness!!! I’m in love!  Today we went to watch a bunch of cowboys shoot their guns in a competition and we put the D200 and D700 to the test with the new lens’ and WOW…all I can say is I can’t wait for tomorrow’s wedding!!!!!  Just look at the detail in this first picture especially…my husband in a staring match with a rival competitor!!!  I can’t believe what this lens can do!!! Oh…man…WOOHOO!!!!!001

The Shoot 126The speed in which this camera can shoot is amazing!!! AMAZING!!!!  f6.3 ISO 200 at 180mm 1/160 shutter speed…and voila!  I LOVE this lens!!! LOVE this camera!! I’ve found the perfect match! (next to my husband of course)…he he he 😉

Invited out to the Hamilton Angling & Hunting Association (known as the Ha Ha Club) for this western shoot we were able to watch our aunt Elaine (depicted here during a course of fire where she is rapidly firing upon multiple targets with cat like reflexes striking each target) and Uncle Alfred compete.  Check out the rounds being ejected!!! Go Girl!!

Western Shoot 04Western Shoot (10)

Check out the duds… The Western Shoot is not just about the competition of firing your firearms but the dress as well, taking you backwards to the late 18 hundreds people dress the part, you actually feel like you are back in time. 

03Western Shoot (38)

Almost forgot, 🙂 Once you join the “club” and start registering for different competitions you will need an Alias… Aunt Elaine and Uncle Alfred are better know around the circuit as Black Magic and Two Feathers…  What fun!!!   02Western Shoot (7)

Although your main reason for doing something like this is to have fun and get to meet a different people with a common interest there is still that competitive edge that drives one to constantly attempt to better themselves, and well… when your gun misfires, or double feeds or something unexpected occurs; as in any sport frustration plays a part…  They shot great!!!  unknown if they placed or not as we had to leave early we left with a better understanding of the sport and a possible new interest in the upcoming months… lol.05Western Shoot (116)

Thank you both for the invite and opportunity to check out this sport, have a blast, meet some new people and enjoy a little time together.  Looking forward to see what next year brings.  🙂

Jenny and her family came to visit today and get their maternity pictures done…all the way from LONDON!  I can’t tell you how wonderful it is to have word of mouth spread that far!  Thanks for making the trip out here everyone and hopefully we’ll see you all at the end of May!  Doesn’t this pregnant beauty remind you of Pocahontas?


I love this shot!  I love playing with satin material and trying to figure out new and exciting things to do with it!  Love this one and havn’t seen it anywhere!  Many photographers do the wrap with all sorts of material and we all try and put our own spin on it somehow….so I’m loving this one as I can call it my own 🙂dsc_3319
