Luke C.'s Fresh 48

Even though I have been doing photography for over 7 years Luke was my first Fresh 48 baby. He was born in November of 2018 and I photographed him the day after he was born. Mom and baby hadn’t been moved to recovery yet and were still in the delivery room. I am still blown away every time I photograph clients in the hospital in St Catharines. Their delivery rooms are spacious and have amazing window light.

Luke’s brother Patrick was there during the session and kept us all very entertained. He is such a ham. I mean couldn’t you just kiss those cheeks?

If you would like to document your time in the hospital, or at home after a home birth, but you aren’t sure about having your labour and delivery photographed, maybe a Fresh 48 session would be perfect for you? Message me through my contact form and we can discuss your session in more detail.

A Beautiful Third Birth at Oakville Trafalgar Hospital

February 2nd, 2019

I was very excited when Tara contacted me to photograph her birth in Oakville, ON. She was pregnant with her third and had hired a photographer for her previous two deliveries. So Tara was not new to birth photography and knows the value of having those precious moments captured and preserved to look back on.

It took less than an hour from being admitted to the birth suite for Tara to deliver her beautiful little baby. It was amazing watching how hands-off the nurses at the Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital were once baby Abigail was earth side. The delivery team gave Tara and baby lots of time to enjoy skin-to-skin and affectionate snuggles before they went through the motions of weighing and measuring her. After, Tara was able to get some well deserved rest in recovery.

I LOVE being able to capture mom and dad’s reaction to finally seeing their baby for the first time!

2018: the Year in Review

January 1st, 2019

Happy New Year!

Originally I had planned to publish this blog post yesterday on New Year’s Eve but we have had a wonderfully busy holiday season enjoying time with family and friends. I hope you have also been having a great Christmas and are doing something special or relaxing on this New Year’s Day.

2018 has been an amazing year for me, my family, and Elora Williams Photography. It was definitely a year of learning and growth, establishing a business in a new country will do that! 2018 was also the year I discovered a new passion of mine, birth photography. I captured my first (non-sister) birth at the beginning of the year and fell head over heels in love with everything about it. Each birth story is incredibly unique and I love being able to preserve those experiences and special moments for each family to look back on and treasure. I am super excited for the births I will be blessed to experience in 2019.

Below are the different sessions I have had the privilege of shooting in 2018. I have blogged some of the sessions already so I encourage you to click on the different thumbnails to see full blog posts of the session. I will also be blogging the remainder of the sessions over the next few weeks.
