Newborn portrait shoots rarely go exactly as planned and Aren’s shoot a few days ago was no exception. Mom says he’s typically an easy baby, full of sleepy smiles and rarely fussy. But babies will be babies and it may have been the strange place, the strange people or it may have just been a fussy day but Aren wanted nothing to do with sleep or happy smiles. In the end, we did manage to get a few sleepy shots of him cocooned in his favourite blanket. We’ve scheduled a second shoot for Monday to capture some more newborn poses so be sure to check back at the beginning of the week for more photographs of this little cutey.

A few weeks ago, I had the distinct pleasure of photographing my friend’s beautiful newborn daughter.  As every newborn photographer knows, the best laid plans last until the baby arrives. With the exception of perhaps five minutes in the middle of the session, this wide awake baby girl wasn’t going to persuaded to sleep. The world is too interesting and she didn’t want to miss a moment. She was a few weeks old and full of smiles and giggles for the camera – already finding her personality.

It’s been a long time in coming but I’m finally ready.

At the beginning of the new year, I decided to expand my photography business into fine art portraits. It’s a whole new world of expectant mothers, newborns, babies and families. It’s been a long road with many challenges but I’ve rebranded my business, built my portfolio and created a new website – including integrating my blog. This means more changes to come. Soon I’ll be deleting my WordPress.com page and concentrating my blog on my website. I’d love for you to join me over at suzismart.com – you can easily subscribe to my updated blog at the bottom of the page or when commenting on a story. I hope that you’ll join me on my journey into this exciting new world.


Please share… Let’s get Jill’s story being told around the world.

2012 has been a great year of photography for me and I hope that you’ve enjoyed following my adventures. With 2013 hours away, I thought I’d share one last image before going to celebrate the coming year with my family. I’m looking forward to sharing even more photography with you in the new year and wish you all the best for 2013.

My thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by the violent and senseless attack in Aurora, Colorado last night — the victims, the friends, the family, the emergency responders, the theatre staff et al.
