I was introduced to Cadence a few weeks ago, and it was confirmed, sweetness arrived into this beautiful family's home. Meghan, Scott and Paisley radiate love, patience and kindness. It only makes sense that this little person they have welcomed into their world matches this sweet dance; this beautiful melody of love. Welcome to the world Cadence. And thank you, Meghan, Scott and Paisley for introducing me to some of the sweetest little people I have ever met. Love: Jo xoxo #

Watching my nephew's birth was simply one of the most moving experiences of my life thus far. I've mentioned this before, that witnessing a birth is absolutely life changing. It's very different than being at your own birth. When you are birthing your own child you are in the moment, feeling the contractions and going through the motions. When you are watching a birth, camera-ready or as part of a support to the family it's extremely emotional in the most miraculous way. I di
I was welcomed into the operating room this past March. My first c-section birth. I was nervous. I wanted to be sure I captured everything for this family. Watching them sign the papers before admittance. Seeing them prepare to meet their new family member. Hearing them laugh about the predicted weight and sex. I felt nothing but honoured. Not only was I hired by this family because they love my work, but they told me that my presence calmed them. I am lucky to call this fami
It was Mother's Day when we told everyone that we were expecting our third child. We announced it with this photograph above. This photograph used to announce our pregnancy was taken right after we told our children that they were going to have a new baby. They were overjoyed and from that day forward they kissed my belly everyday until their baby sister arrived. My husband and I thought about having a third baby for sometime. It seemed to make sense that having two healthy c
It seemed as though we waited for this little beauty for a long time. All of us anticipating her healthy arrival. Doug, Amy and Bea couldn't wait to meet Daphne, and neither could I. I have realized that with each pregnancy a woman grows wiser to the risks involved. She grows to truly appreciate the miracle that is a healthy life. We know how intricate our human body is and when we think about a woman's body making an actual life that works perfectly it can be overwhelming.
Upon arrival, camera ready, these sisters where ready for their photo shoot. The anticipation of seeing one another was evident. These two beautiful souls last met in person 4 years prior. Not only were they excited to see one another, but Kymberley was excited to finally introduce her sister to her son, Ira. Meeting their nephew for the first time, Stephanie and Micheal simply fell in love. As well, Ira was all cuddles with his Aunt and Uncle and his new baby cousin soon to
A bundle of cuteness arrived in the Sapp home, healthy, safely and in loving care. This little guy was absolutely charming. What a wonderful newborn session. Welcome to our world Gabriel. Thank you Jacquelyn and Anthony for welcoming me into your home. It was a sincere pleasure capturing these moments in time for you and your family. Love: Jo xoxoxxo #newborn #baby #welcome #joanneschwindt #photography #photo #love #family
Awaiting this new arrival has been one of the most exciting times I've experienced. Anthony and Jacquelyn, a couple who share a deep friendship and a love that ignites a room await their first baby. I was welcomed into their home, with much cheer, nervous excitment and a sincere calm prescence. The photos from this session are so very sweet and Momma and Papa look so beautiful. I can hardly wait to meet their first baby. An exciting time. An honour to be a part of this new mi
What a sweet little bundle of joy. Truly. This little lady was a ture treasure to capture and might I add, highly cooperative! Surrounded by so much love from Mum, Dad, sister, Grandma and Grandpa this little beauty truly felt embraced by all of the love that surrounded her. And, lucky me, I got to capture these beautiful fresh new moments. Thank you again, Ian, Annie, Norah, Claire and family, for welcoming me into your new life only 4 days new! Welcome Claire. Love: Jo xoox
When you find out that you are pregnant with your first child the emotions that move throughout your entire body are ones of immense wonderment. Babies are true miracles of life, a joyous wonder that happens to many women naturally. Those that have never experienced difficulty conceiving are unaware of how it may feel to simply come to terms with Doctors telling you over and over again, that you will not be able to have children unless other measures are taken. The feelings o
Since the development of my new site I have lost my online photojournal archive from my past sessions. I have opened up my vault and have found so many treasures. One of which is a true gem, Hazel Ruby and her family. The moment I met Hazel within her Mother's belly still growing, I could feel all the love that surrounded her and the nervous anticipation she would soon ease once she entered the outside world. Meeting both of her parents, photographing them pregnant, and simpl
I love walking into a family's home, especially one that has just welcomed a very new baby into their lives. Their is a beautiful calmness that surrounds them and so much love. I was honored to be a part of this experience capturing this little lady's loveliness and all of her cute-ness too. Welcome Cailea. #baby #family #photography #newborn
Editing these images brought back the exact same feelings I had during the entire process while capturing these photos at different times of Everly's development. I am so privileged to have had the opportunity to be so close to this family during this beautiful journey. These photos are only a few of some very moving images.
Thank you. And, welcome Everly. #pregnancy #birth #photography #newborn #family #baby #love #photo
