“I’m expecting two newborns, any time now” I would excitedly reply, whenever someone asked about my work. I have newborn babies on my mind. All the time. Seriously. I love it! :D
I couldn’t wait to meet Alena, one of my newest clients. She was just 9 days new when I travelled to Amsterdam to photograph her and her beautiful family.
Isn’t she just GORGEOUS!
and those teeny tiny toes… *love*
Once we had her sleeping, she slept sooooo soundly :)
She’s so beautiful… *ahhh* :)
Let me share a couple of her big sister too, meet Sophie.
Sophie was all smiles when she was inside one of my baskets…also known as “the boat”. She loved it when Daddy spun her around in it ;)
And just one more of Alena, because I can’t resist ;)
Hope you enjoyed the peek!
Remember this gorgeous mama-to-be? I was delighted to hear of baby’s safe arrival.. A boy.. and with a gorgeous name too!
Welcome to the world Dexter! :)
A wonderfully adorable little brother for a delightful big sister!
I just want to *kiss* those gorgeous cheeks of his! Sweet dreams little one..
It was lovely to receive his birth announcement in the post too! :-)
Designed by Jolette of Mamamila with photography by Tigs Creations! We just recently started working together. Her designs and cards are simply gorgeous and I’m so happy to offer her services to my clients!
Hope you enjoyed the peek…
Remember this beautiful couple? Here’s their sweet baby boy.. the one who liked to play a game of water fountain! ;-) I completely lost count of how many times he played that game! We changed blankets so many times; I had quite some laundry to do afterwards, not that I minded one bit!
His little game began a nano-second after I took the photo above (also the very first photo I took at his newborn session and the only one in this pose) – with his hand held up to his face like that, he looks like he’s planning it too, so funny!
He’s absolutely gorgeous, and utterly adorable! Don’t you think?
Ssssshhhh… baby dreaming :-)
Ahhhh total sweetness! *love*
Hope you enjoyed the sneak peek :-)
Have a fabulous Friday everyone, and a great weekend!
I didn’t hear yet if this baby has arrived… but surely must be any time now! This gorgeous mama-to-be has such a cute little bump that we waited till later in her pregnancy for the maternity session.
So… will it be a boy? or a girl? I can’t wait to hear!
And this gorgeous little one is going to be a fabulous big sister!!
Isn’t she adorable?! :-)
Such a beautiful family of 3, waiting to be a family of 4. I’m so excited for them! :-)
Hope you enjoyed the sneak peek!
Do you remember my CRAVE Amsterdam photo session with Erika from BOTH Assistance and Support?
I couldn’t resist also photographing her gorgeous cat, Watje…
Isn’t he the sweetest? I love his markings and his beautiful green eyes :-)
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! :-)
Do you remember Frøya? I’m sure many of you do. She was one of my very first clients, and a Baby Plan client too! I absolutely loved our photo sessions together and watching her grow :-)
Exciting news… this wonderful family is now a family of 5 – Frøya has a baby brother!
Introducing Trym… 16 days new :-)
Trym is adorable; and even though he didn’t sleep a wink during his special photo session, he was so very calm throughout, an absolute delight!
Many congratulations to you all!
Hope you enjoyed the sneak peek ;-)
I think this has to be one of my favourite maternity sessions. With so many beautiful images to choose from, I had such a hard time deciding which images to share as a sneak peek.
These two gorgeous ladies are waiting for a very special arrival, and I can’t wait either! :-)
P. and S. are both so beautiful in front of the camera, so happy together and so in love. I can’t wait to share their gallery with them…
Hope you enjoyed this little sneak peek :-)
I’ve had so many photo sessions lately that I’m a little behind on blogging sneak peeks (in fact some may actually become post-peeks!) so watch out for several coming your way…
Just a few short weeks ago, on Father’s Day, I travelled to Ouderkerk aan de Amstel (a lovely little village near Amstelveen) to meet this wonderful family, including Grandma :-)
Just look at that adorable face, doesn’t he make you smile?! :-)
We had a fun afternoon together – drawing pictures of Hello Kitty, blowing bubbles, making a hideaway from umbrellas and blankets, we also did some hula hooping too! ;-)
For the family photos we headed for the bedroom; the light was just gorgeous, streaming in from two large windows.
Such a happy family, it was lovely to spend the afternoon with them.
Oh, and I loved Monty’s t-shirt – it says “Dad is my Hero” :-)
Megan had a mountain of energy, barely staying still for a nano-second. However, after a series of forward rolls I caught her eye for a brief moment…
Hope you enjoyed the sneak peek! There are more peeks coming soon so keep your eyes peeled! ;-)
Wishing you all a fabulous weekend!
Did you see the teaser on the Tigs Creations Facebook Page yesterday? Here’s the official sneak peek!
For most of our session this sweet baby boy quietly watched the world go by, though we did eventually manage to capture some beautiful sleeping images too, he was such a sweetheart.
Ohhhh, totally gorgeous isn’t he?
His big brother was a cutie too!
Look at those little peepers, doesn’t he make your heart smile :-)
Hope you enjoyed the sneak peek!
Have a great week everyone, thanks for stopping by :-)
Just a quick update on my availability… I’m now booking sessions late-October and November so if you’re thinking of sending portraits as Christmas gifts for your families, don’t wait to secure your date! For newborns, please contact me asap and before your due date – I always try to make room in my schedule for newborn sessions :)
and….. whilst on the subject of newborns…
Just a few short weeks ago I met this gorgeous family. Here’s a few of my faves from our session: meet Sami, and his little brother, Dani, 25 days new.
So so sweet.. and I love those cute little newborn toes too!
Just look at those gorgeous eyes, Sami is going to melt some hearts with those, for sure!
This one makes me smile :) these are two very handsome little boys!
And here’s the family of four:
It was a pleasure to meet you all, I hope you enjoyed your sneak peek…!
