Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a wonderful time with family and friends over the holidays.

Today, most of us are getting back into our regular routines as we drop our children off at school this morning for their first day back after the school break.

This holiday season, I took some time off to spend with my daughter Madison. I am back in the office today full-time.

This year, Chandra Lee Photography donated $4,446.39 to Bethesda House, a local women’s shelter in Bowmanville.

$2,400.17 was donated in the form of a bank draft to support the shelter.

$1,000 was donated in Walmart gift cards.

$1,046.22 was donated in the form of newly purchased toys for boys and girls.

My daughter Madison, my husband and I went shopping and we picked out the toys together. Madison and I had the cart for the girls and my husband had the cart for the boys.

Everything was dropped off to the Bethesda House on December 18th.

Each year Bethesda House arranges 100 gift baskets for boys and girls in our local community.

I wanted to help Bethesda House fill up the baskets with toys for the children this year.

Chandra Lee Photography donated $1,000 and our goal was to double or triple that amount to $2,000 or $3,000 through fundraising sessions.

With the help from everyone who came out for fundraising sessions, we were thrilled to raise a total of $4,446.39.

100% of the proceeds of sale from these fundraising sessions were donated in toys, Walmart gift cards and a certified bank draft from Chandra Lee Photography to Bethesda House.

Everything in life happens for a reason and I am grateful for all of my experiences good and bad. My family has more than we need and all we really need is each other and to be together and that we should always give back to others and be grateful for what we have.

My mother once gave me some very valuable advice that “there is always someone else out there who is in a less fortunate circumstance than yourself, always remember that and be grateful for what you have”.

I am very grateful for all of my life lessons.

My daughter was a part of this and that makes me very happy. She helped to pick out the toys for the children, she picked out the gift cards and counted to 40 and passed them to the cashier and she waited for me in line at the bank to donate the remaining funds in the form of a bank draft.

My hope is that each year my family will be able to continue to donate to others in need through my photography.

Each year I have always donated a small amount to charities mostly through my daughter’s school including food drives, the Jump Rope for Heart Event or the Canadian Cancer Society.

Over the years, I have also donated entire newborn and child photography sessions to local charity auctions.

This year Chandra Lee Photography hosted its very own fundraising event and I worked for an entire 3 weeks and donated everything made to one cause that is important to me. I am so very grateful that women and children have these wonderful resources to utilize when needed.

Thank you so very much to all of my clients who helped raise funds for this organization.

Below are some of the images taken of our shopping event and donations for the Bethesda House.

Bethesda House is a local shelter in Bowmanville who supports women and children in our local community.

I love seeing the children smile and photographing them.

New to Chandra Lee Photography for 2015 are Child Mini Sessions!

The studio has been newly stocked with beautiful new backgrounds and props and accessories.

Princess dresses are available in sizes 6 months to 6 years.  Tuxedos are available for your toddler in sizes 6 months to 18 months.  As well, there is a selection of tiaras, headbands, boutique hats, newsboy hat, toddler tie and so much more!

As a newborn and child photographer, I grew tired of the plain white and backgrounds and thought it would be fun to add some colour to your child’s portraits.  The focus is still always kept on your child to capture candid moments and beautiful expressions.

The children have been full of giggles visiting the studio lately.

If children are a bit shy, I am on the quiet side to give them time to warm up.  If they love being silly, then I am known to be silly with the children and will do most anything to capture a smile.

Every session, I thrive to ensure your children enjoy their time during a photo shoot.  I make funny sounds, sing, have toys nearby and squeaky ducks within hands reach.  I have a few tricks up my sleeve to help make sure your portrait experience is positive.

I will give teddy bears kisses and I discover new things to entertain the children as the years go on.  A little girl who visited me recently was pretty serious about her photo session at just one year of age.  The only thing she found funny was when I gave teddy bears kisses.  She quickly tired of that and I discovered being extremely silly and pretending to eat the teddy bear made her laugh hilariously.

Two year olds are usually the most difficult age to photograph.  They are too young to take instruction and they don’t want to sit still.  It’s best to let a two year just be themselves and make it a fun experience with games and songs rather than try and force them to sit still.

It makes me happy to see all the happy children in the studio smiling and giggling and to capture those moments for you on camera.

If you would like to know more about child mini sessions, please contact the studio at 905.449.2200 or by using the contact tab.  Thank you!

It’s not every day that you will be pregnant or will give birth.

These are special moments in your life that need to be captured for historical documentation and for long-lasting memories. These are once-in-a-lifetime-experiences that only deserve to be captured by the lens of the camera.

This is why Newborn photography is a new and emerging trend and for good reason.

Hire A Newborn Photographer to Tell Your Story of Pregnancy and Birth

More and more mothers these days are valuing the importance of hiring a newborn photographer as the lens tells the story of pregnancy and birth in an artistic way that coincides eloquently with each personality, while capturing the excitement and dynamics experienced by women who are pregnant or who have just had a newborn arrive into our world.

Obviously a woman’s body goes through many changes during pregnancy. Capturing images of your pregnancy can be done in so many ways. One example is fashion – your new clothes reflect your changing body and the child inside your womb. Photo shoots will make you feel relaxed and bring out your true inner greatness of you having a child that soon will enter your life and the world. Even better, your partner should also be included in the photo shoot. The two of you together in the appropriate fashions that match your moods, feelings or the season, is ideal for lasting memories.

Let The Lens Tell A Story When Your Baby is Born

When your baby is born the lens only has more stories to tell. There are so many ways to capture your child in new clothing indoors with props – and outdoors too. This is where you can get really creative and work with a newborn photographer to capture the right moments that solidify feelings of happiness and love – all meshed into one. Seasonal outdoor shoots are also great with your child and you and your partner as well.

Newborn photography is simply the best way to freeze these historical and unique moments in time.

These are rare experiences; they are stories within stories that only deserve to be captured by the lens of a camera.

Your experience is history in the making – your story, forever.

You can find out more information about our studio, products and services by calling 905.449.2200.

We are always happy to arrange an in-person consultation prior to booking.  This gives you an opportunity to meet with Chandra Lee and view the studio and all the props and accessories available for your use during your session.

Over 25 maternity wraps and gowns are available for you to  use during pregnancy portrait sessions.
