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.

Teagan M.'s Fresh 48

Dec 10th, 2018

October was full of cold, overcast, rainy days which made it hard to schedule a date to do Carol’s maternity session. Then randomly on a Wednesday the weather warmed and the clouds parted to create the perfect lighting for pictures. I sent Carol a message and we planned the session for that evening, and I am so glad we did!

I have gotten to know Carol and her daughter Hazel over the last 9-10 months so it was funny to see Hazel so protective of her mom. She wasn’t too interested in having her picture taken but she also didn’t want to be out of reach of her mom. It took some work but we managed to get a few smiles!

Carol was scheduled for a C-section, which unfortunately meant I would not be able to photograph her delivery. However, we decided that Fresh 48 would be perfect for her and miss Teagan. St Catharines General has these big amazing windows which made for the most perfect lighting.

Baby Teagan remained asleep for the whole session. She hardly made a peep.
