My Portrait Parties are a great way to get some quick family portraits done. I will be hosting a Holiday Portrait Party on Saturday, November 29th at my studio located near downtown Toronto. Sessions on this date are very limited so please contact me if you are interested in booking one! UPDATE: I have only TWO sessions left for this date! Contact me soon if you would like to snag one of them.

Newborn Portraits at Home | http://jbsmithphotography.comGah! I am so excited to share these photos! If you have seen me anytime this month, you probably know that I was on-call to photograph the birth of my dear friends. We patiently waited two weeks for the little guy to make his appearance. I slept with my phone beside me during that time and every morning that I woke up, I was paranoid that I had missed THE call. Owen took his sweet time to grace us with his presence and I was unable to document his birth, but I was able to come by the hospital when he was a mere sixteen hours old. What a cutie he is! Five days later, I visited them all at home for a proper newborn portrait session. This little man loves to be swaddled with arms in and I just thought that it was the funniest thing. Congratulations Sarah & Kevin! I am so happy for you and I cannot wait to spoil OJ as he gets older.

P.S. Sarah is an awesome chiropractor and she has always called her patients (well everyone in her life!) “turkeys” so it’s only fitting that she would have her own turkey born on Thanksgiving weekend!Newborn Portraits at Home | http://jbsmithphotography.comNewborn Portraits at Home | http://jbsmithphotography.comNewborn Portraits at Home | http://jbsmithphotography.comNewborn Portraits at Home | http://jbsmithphotography.comNewborn Portraits at Home | http://jbsmithphotography.comNewborn Portraits at Home | http://jbsmithphotography.comNewborn Portraits at Home | http://jbsmithphotography.comNewborn Portraits at Home | http://jbsmithphotography.comNewborn Portraits at Home | http://jbsmithphotography.comNewborn Portraits at Home | http://jbsmithphotography.comNewborn Portraits at Home | http://jbsmithphotography.com

One Year Old | Jessica Blaine Smith http://jbsmithphotography.comSo, there may be too many images in this blog post but I couldn’t help it: Ezekiel is TOO CUTE. Him and his parents recently came into the studio on his birthday to celebrate turning the big one year old! You may remember the last time that he was at the studio for portraits when he was two months old. This little guy just keeps getting cuter and more smiley and it is such a joy to experience.

P.S. You may have seen my announcement yesterday for my Holiday Portrait Party on Saturday, November 29th! The day is already halfway filled up so if you are interested in snagging a session, please contact me soon!

Casa Loma Engagement | Jessica Blaine Smith http://jbsmithphotography.com

I really like doing engagement portrait sessions. It’s a great way to get to know my brides and grooms better. It’s also a great way for them to get some nice portraits of themselves looking as they do in everyday regular life. Before moving to North Bay, Jade and Dave lived in the area around Casa Loma in Toronto. When we were deciding on a location for their engagement portraits, this was the first neighbourhood that came to mind. It was fun for them to walk the streets that were once so familiar to them. These two are an awesome couple who have a great vision for their wedding day and I cannot wait to capture it all come July!

Two Year Old Portraits | Jessica Blaine Smith http://jbsmithphotography.comHoly heck was I ever excited to photograph Evie again! The last time that I photographed her was when she was seven months old. Now she is two years old and I love that she has that same sparkle in her eyes as she did when she was a baby (evidence is above!). This time around, Evie’s Mom and Grandma joined in for the portrait session. It’s a lot of fun to photograph the same people over the years to document their changes. There is real value in the images when you can look back and see just how much as changed and this is probably one of my most favourite aspects of my job.Two Year Old Portraits | Jessica Blaine Smith http://jbsmithphotography.comTwo Year Old Portraits | Jessica Blaine Smith http://jbsmithphotography.comTwo Year Old Portraits | Jessica Blaine Smith http://jbsmithphotography.comTwo Year Old Portraits | Jessica Blaine Smith http://jbsmithphotography.comTwo Year Old Portraits | Jessica Blaine Smith http://jbsmithphotography.comTwo Year Old Portraits | Jessica Blaine Smith http://jbsmithphotography.comTwo Year Old Portraits | Jessica Blaine Smith http://jbsmithphotography.com
