Gatineau Ottawa Newborn Photographer {baby Massimo}

Chantal, a friend of a friend, saw my pictures online (thank you Facebook) and contacted me about setting up a newborn session once her newest little guy was born. Little Massimo was welcomed into the world by his parents, big brother Antonio, and twin brothers Angelo and Tomasso (guess what? they're Italian!).

Soooo cute! And amazingly alert for only 10 days old! 

I love the splayed out toes! Don't you just want to stick his whole foot in your mouth??  

Never in my life have I met such a young baby who was so alert. In the three hours I was there, he slept for maaaaybe 30 minutes. Not only that, but he was STRONG, easily using his legs to push himself out of almost every position we tried to put him in. At ten days old! 

Massimo, daddy's gonna LOVE watching you steamroll opponents on the football field! Hopefully by then he'll have forgotten the fact that you puked, pooped, and peed on him (twice) in the span of 15 minutes. The trifecta of baby bodily fluids! You're already a champ!

Thank you Chantal and Gio for inviting me into your home and giving me the opportunity to document this moment of your lives. We'll have to do another family shoot in the spring.

(For those reading in a reader, you'll have to click through to see the video below. It's worth it.)


  1. I really love the onw where Chantal and Gio looks at each other over massimo on the bed...Amy you are an amazing photographer.

  2. Love, love, love these. Almost makes me want to have another baby, just so you can photograph it! My favourite is the one where they are all on the bed, with the baby in the foreground and the rest of the family in the back. Gorgeous!

  3. Fabulous photography, Amy! What wonderful memories for them to have for years to come! You are really going to be in demand! Love, Mora/Mom/Nana
