Mama chose this gorgeous plum studio mama gown for her fist set up. Doesn't it look stunning against the dramatic black background? 

If you aren't a model and fear looking stiff in photos, don't worry!

I constantly talk to my clients to help get them into a relaxed state and perfectly posed.

Tanis Saucier Photography | The Big Move, The Pandemic and Gratitude https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2021/5/-tanis-saucier-photography-the-big-move-the-pandemic-and-gratitude Tanis Saucier Photography logo header

In the span of a single year, my family and I bought our first home and moved from the bustling metropolis of

Montreal to the little village of Gore, Quebec... 


Moving to the country!

 

We've become tool-wielding renovators, soil-tilling gardeners and egg-collecting chicken-raisers.



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

We have weathered home-schooling, lock-downs and done waaaayyy too many dishes! In all the chaos we are feeling so grateful...knowing that time isn't standing still, we are all moving forward.

Tanis Saucier and family, smiling through the changes and challenges of life because we are together.

 

Throughout all this learning, growing and transitioning, I have relocated my business and my photography studio to the Laurentians to be closer to my home.  Studio relocation is not new to me as I have had three previous spaces where I created many beautiful experiences and memories for my clients. This newest relocation was huge because it came after a long and uncertain pause.

Tanis looks behind her at the empty moving boxes as she prepares to relocate her Maternity and Newborn Photography business, Tanis Saucier Photography, to Saint-Sauveur, Quebec

 

The pandemic had me flip-flopping between closing my beloved business forever and pushing forward to prepare for the ultimate rebirth of my passion and joy. There were dark days... confusing fogs and paralyzing overwhelm that seemed to come with either option. With so much support from my family, many painful and tearful moments and  I chose rebirth and so studio relocation became my goal.

I was beyond ready to get into my new space! In April of last year, I was forced to close my Montreal studio and had to place all my lovely, soft, cute and cuddly things in storage.... I was finally able to reunite with all of them again. Tanis Saucier Photography studio is now located in the village of Saint-Sauveur, in the heart of the action on Avenue de la Gare and is up and running again. Below are some images of the building that has become home to Tanis Saucier Photography.

 

My studio is accessible on the side of the building through those sweet, yellow doors!

Tanis Saucier Photography Studio located in Saint Sauveur, Quebec, specializes in Maternity Photography, Newborn Photography, Milestone Photography and Family photography.

While I haven't been able to do a grand opening event to celebrate this move, due to the pandemic, I will be providing my absolute best services to welcome clients, new and old! Of course, strict hygiene practices and COVID19 protocols are in effect to ensure a safe and comfortable experience for all.

 

I specialize in Maternity, Newborn and Milestone studio sessions.

My Fall Family in the Laurentians | Tanis Saucier Photography https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2020/10/my-fall-family-in-the-laurentians-tanis-saucier-photography  

We are so fortunate to be living in the Laurentians, surrounded by the most spectacular Autumn display I have ever seen! Since I will be moving my photography studio up north, I thought I should scout out a location for my clients and I happened upon the perfect spot! So, with bribes in place (take-out AFTER the shoot!), I prepped my children and my husband and set out to Saint Sauveur to capture some images of us in all the Fall Glory!

 

These two... my heart explodes when I spy them being kind to each other! Siblings will argue, naturally, but when they think I am not looking they can be so sweet with one another. Knowing they will always have each other is a balm on my mother heart.

And then there is this guy....

My handsome husband, my best friend and partner in all things productive!

It was a bit chilly but with some encouragement (read threats of no dessert! lol) we got through a variety of images!

Silliness ensued...

Before and After | Montreal Maternity and Newborn Photography https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2019/12/before-and-after-montreal-maternity-and-newborn-photography There is nothing stronger, with more grace and beauty than a woman growing a baby.

Her body becomes overwhelmed with change and her heart with love.

 

This gorgeous mama came to me for her maternity session with her partner. How adorable are they together?

Mama and Papa brought along some traditional clothing. Stunning! This baby will be able to see how proud her parents are of their heritage.

But then we switched gears and captured these stunning images below. I love how the dress hugs her maternal form!

We couldn't get through a maternity session without focussing solely on the mama. She is doing all the heavy lifting after all!

AFTER!

Little miss perfect arrived to the delight of her parents! A little sleep deprived but overjoyed with their new bundle of love! I couldn't wait to do her newborn portrait session and used all the style and elegance in my choice of props and accessories.

Macro baby bits are my favourite and are always optional in the full newborn sessions.

I adored her! I was ready and willing to keep her all to myself!

I feel so proud and honoured when I am hired to capture the 'before and after' of one of life's biggest moments. 

Welcome to this side of parenting... you are doing great!

Well these two sweet sisters could not be any cuter! Am I right?

I had the pleasure of welcoming little 8-day old Madeline and her big sister Charlotte into the studio yesterday for her newborn portrait session. Charlotte was so helpful and wanted to be close to her sister much of the time! She is already embracing her new role and I think little Miss Madeline is already 'looking up' to her big sister!

Sneak Peak! | Montreal Newborn Baby Girl https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2019/9/sneak-peak-montreal-newborn-baby-girl  

Here's a sweet sneak peak of just one of the many set-ups we did during this newborn baby girl's portrait session.

She travelled all the way from the Laurentian's to visit me in my Montreal studio

and it was an absolute pleasure to photograph her and her parents! 

 

Such a beauty!  A sweet 20-day old newborn baby girl sleeping on a speckled yellow blanket and matching wrap during her newborn session with Tanis Saucier Photography in Montreal.

 

One more of my favourite set-ups!

NICU Newborn Warrior | Montreal Milestone Baby Photo Session https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2019/8/nicu-newborn-warrior-montreal-milestone-baby-photo-session I cannot imagine the crazy ups and downs that these amazing parents had to endure when mama was put on bedrest (inclined bedrest at that!) to ensure that their baby girl would stay in utero as long as possible. When Mama contacted me with the request to celebrate her beautiful daughter's one year Milestone with a special photo session, I was instantly on board with all her ideas. The in-person pre-consultation was where I first got to meet this healthy and oh so happy little spark! We discussed different ideas, looked through inspirational images and made a plan. 

 

We did a simple and sweet peach set-up... how adorable is that face?

 Mama special-ordered these amazing little pink baby boxing gloves and matching boxer shorts just for the Milestone Baby Photo Session (You can visit the Etsy Store HERE!). The day of the session, the parents also brought in a few picture frames to incorporate into the "NICU Warrior" set-up but had forgotten the actual NICU pictures! Visibly disappointed, I suggested that we use the blank frame in the set-up and that they send me the digital image later. I promised I would do my best to work my Photoshop Magic and insert the image in the frame in post production. I am so pleased to have been able to add the special image in, so this little girl and everyone who sees this image will always know just how far she has come!

Her smile says it all...

Such contagious smiles!

I know not every mama is ready to get in front of the camera and pose with their little loves, but we all want memories of the newness, the adorable tininess of baby.

 

This tiny human will only grow bigger with each passing day.

Isn't she adorable? Mama wanted earthy tones so we went with a soft grey here.

This little boy wanted to hang out with eyes wide open during his newborn photography session.

He did accommodate us with a few sleepy shots too :) 

I have a variety of props and outfits, wraps and stuffies to help create the perfect scene for your little love.

Mama wanted to use my fox bonnet and stuffy and I think it suits him perfectly!

It is so important to capture the beginnings with the parents too! Although many parents (moms, I am talking mostly to you!) are not wanting to step in front of the camera after the birth of their child, I always convince them that these family memories will become priceless treasures in the years to come. Baby will want to see all the love that was felt for him right from the beginning!

Big sister also graced us with some sweet moments! The sibling bond is something that will only grow over time.

How adorable of a capture is this sibling image?

Wow Mama! | Montreal Maternity Photographer https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2019/5/wow-mama-montreal-maternity-photographer When I am hired to photograph a woman that is her full bloom of pregnancy, I get emotional. I remember the feelings, the anticipation, the flutters and kicks! I want to capture that sense of awe that we, as women, are gardeners of life... the most precious of fruit!

Women come to me because, as a woman who carried two baby bumps, I know what it is like and I treat all my glowing clients like the Queen Goddesses that they are! I fuss over their hair so it falls just right. I perfect my lighting to highlight all the right curves. I gush over their awesomeness! And when I have clients that come to me, somewhat shy and with a hint of self-doubt, I offer gentle guidance and easy posing suggestions to ensure the best results.

When parents don't want to be in front of the camera for the newborn session I at least try to incorporate their hands! This is one image that will always show how tiny baby was from the beginning!

As a Montreal Photographer, I get to see the prettiest ladies! This stunning mama-to-be was no exception!

We went for a nice balance of dramatic and fun.

A black background with dramatic lighting paired with a strong maternal gaze makes this image truly a work of art.

How cute is that baby bump? Sometimes, a simple look is all you need.

This is a little sneak peek of a sweet one-year old baby girl celebrating her birthday with a Unicorn-themed Cake Smash here at Tanis Saucier Photography! She wasn't too sure about the whole thing at the beginning of the session but with many cuddles from mom and buckets of patience, she ended up giving us huge smiles and sweet expressions.

And she had her cake and ate some too!

I am so excited to share the rest of these adorable Milestone images with her family.

Baby Boy Potato Sack Pose sneak peek | Montreal newborn photographer https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2019/3/baby-boy-sneak-peek-montreal-newborn-photographer Little Mr B came in to see me today! He was a wee thing but oh so adorable.

He was a superstar during his newborn photography session and let us get through many sweet set ups! One of which uses his Dad's hockey equipment and another in my fuzzy bear outfit! I cannot wait to show them all off!

This one is called The Potato Sack and is comprised of two images edited together in photoshop.

A beautiful blond newborn baby boy posed in the potato sack pose, wrapped in a grey soft-knit wrap on a grey backdrop during his newborn session with Tanis Saucier Photography in Montreal. #heartfeltparenthood

Rest assured, loving hands were on him securely the whole time! Babies cannot naturally hold their own weight so only professionally trained newborn photographers who know how to pose safely and create composites should attempt this and other more advanced newborn poses.

A beautiful and safe composite image of a 13 day-old newborn baby girl smiling the biggest smile while she sits posed on a pink flokati snuggled in a raspberry knit wrap and matching bonnet at Tanis Saucier Photography's studio in montreal, Canada

 

This little one knows just how loved she is. 

Mom and dad had waited so long for her to arrive and she was so ready for her studio portrait debut!

Through the power of Photoshop and with my wizard-like editing skills, I composited this image to remove dad's loving hands that were holding her upright in this pose, known as "The Potato Sack".

I love that this pretty pink colour suits her sweet face!

 

I can't wait to show mom and dad the rest of the session images soon!

This little bundle of joy was so good for her newborn session. She tolerated me fussing over her through 4 different set-ups!

This muted pink backdrop is so gorgeous next to her skin tone. I don't often do my black and white edits for beanbag images but the simple and clean lines coupled with the white wrap called out to be rendered in the crisp black and white too!

This little man was the sweetest Wild One!

 

When mom and dad contacted me with the request of a Wild One Cake Smash Milestone Session, I squealed a little!

 

I have had the most amazing Wild Things outfit and crown for a little over a year and was thrilled to finally have the chance to try it out! Even though it is sized for up-to 3 years old, we made it work for this One Year Old! 

 

This is merely a sneak-peek so, you will just have to wait to see the images with the full outfit. But, trust me, they will be worth the wait!

 

This image includes a little extra work in the post production, where I added a cute digital backdrop to add to the magic! I LOVE how it turned out and how perfectly it suits the birthday boy's expression! 

 

Milestone Portrait Sessions are best for babies who can sit up on their own but are not yet mobile enough to run away! Each Milestone Cake Smash Portrait Session is custom designed to suit your preferred colours and theme.*

*Due to allergies, cake is not supplied.

So, you are expecting a sweet bundle of joy soon and you are wondering how to capture this amazing time in your life? Newborn Portrait Sessions are an amazing way to cherish the memories of your tiny babe. But as an expecting parent, you have many questions and concerns, naturally. Below is a brief explanation of the top 7 reasons parents hesitate to get professional newborn portraits done and the ways these concerns can be met. 

If you are considering booking Tanis Saucier Photography for a newborn portrait session, be sure to get in touch well before baby arrives to ensure time to get the answers to any other questions you may have.

You can click HERE when you are ready to get started.

 

1. Germs

Of course you want to keep your newborn baby away from people who are sick but that doesn't mean you need to hide yourselves away.  Newborn photographers should have high standards when it comes to studio hygiene practices. Questions like “How often do you wash your props and accessories?” and “What happens if you come down with a cold?” will help align your expectations with your concerns. 

2. Safety

Your baby is so tiny, the tiniest he will ever be! How will you be able to trust another person with the handling of your precious package? There are a multitude of images on the web that show perfectly sleepy babies on a shelf or in a bucket or seemingly propping themselves up on their own hands. Adorable, right? But what you may not know is the behind the scenes of how these images were created. Your newborn photographer should have training to safely accomplish these special poses, a spotter (assistant or mom/dad) to have hands on baby as well as advanced composite editing ability for the more challenging poses (“Froggy”) . Not all photographers will be newborn specialists so it's best to go with a photographer who is dedicated to this very unique type of memory-making! Anyone promoting themselves as a professional photographer should also have the necessary insurance and should be a certified and registered business.

3. We don't have anything to dress baby in.

Again, newborn portrait photography is a highly specialized form of photography. The typical onesies and sleeper pj's you dress your baby in at home often don't fit baby well or have distracting logos and patterns on them. A full service portrait studio that specializes in newborn photography should offer at least some basic wraps, hats/bonnets and/or outfits. You should be able to get a sense of what style and options are available to you from your photographer's portfolio. Most newborn photographers will have a variety of props, outfits and wraps to customize your session to suit your taste. A quick look at their portfolio will allow you to see the photographic styling that you can expect. Take a look at my portfolio to the variety of gorgeous props, outfits and wraps I have for you! 

4. My baby cries so much! How will she be calm enough to get photos done?

It is up to the experienced photographer to create a studio environment that is calm, clean and conducive to sleep! Newborn babies cannot regulate their internal temperatures so it is of importance to ensure a warm room (especially for those sweet naked shots!). The slightest breeze can disturb baby and so most studios have additional space heaters to create a cozy space. Newborn photographers should have techniques for soothing and calming babies such as white noise, swaddling skills and buckets of patience! Your photographer should also be able to guide you in preparing your baby for the best chances of a successful session by giving you tips and suggestions in advance.

5. I don't think I can organize myself AND my newborn baby!

Maybe you have decorated baby’s room, pre-washed and folded all the cute clothing, and read all the baby books… and maybe you haven’t. Regardless of how organized you feel you are or not, your photographer should be someone who will guide you through every step of the experience to help you prepare for this memory-making portrait session. The best way to organize yourself for a newborn portrait session is to do your research well before baby arrives, so you aren’t left scrambling to find a newborn photographer that you want to work with.

6. It’s going to cost too much.

Like with many things in life, you get what you pay for. The memories and moments captured in photographs will become priceless over time, that is for certain. I know my children love seeing themselves as they were as tiny babies. Going through these memories sparks conversation, connection to each other and the past. When they begin their own journey toward parenthood years and years from now, they will love looking back on their newborn images to compare with their own little loves. 

A professional newborn photographer should also be equipped and trained to do a job that you yourself cannot replicate. That is what you pay for. You can view my newborn session pricing by clicking here.

7. Where do I find a professional photographer who specializes in Newborns?

A quick Google Search for “Your City Newborn Photographer” will give you a variety of sites to visit but you can also ask around within your moms circles and in online parenting groups. Look for a photographer whose portfolio of newborn images matches the style you are going for.

Do you want those sweet, posed newborn photos that incorporate props, outfits and accessories so you don’t have to think of a thing or are you looking for more lifestyle, candid photos, maybe done in the comfort of your own home?

Then, be sure to either meet with them in person or at least chat with them on the phone so you can get a sense of whether you will be a good fit. Make a list of questions to ask (because baby brain is a REAL thing!) and get in touch with potential photographers well before baby arrives as most professional photographers book a limit amount of sessions.

Best of 2017 Series | Newborn Portraits | Montreal Newborn Photographer https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2018/1/best-of-2017-series-newborn-portraits-montreal-newborn-photographer Today's blog post is dedicated to my personal favourite images from the over 25 newborn sessions of 2017!

 

This is my "why"...Why do I focus my photographic skills on the tiniest of subjects? It's pretty obvious... just look at these sweet newborn portraits! I adored the newborn stages with both my children and so I decided to create my brand and business just so I could continue to hold and snuggle these amazing beings. A little selfish of me, I'll admit, but because I hold such honour to these new humans, you know my heart is in the right place as I take the utmost care and gentle ways to sooth, pose and create timeless memories for you and your child.

A big, heartfelt thank you to all the amazing mamas and papas who trusted me with their most precious bundles!

These images will be poured over in a week's time, in a month's time, in a year's time... in 10 years and beyond! She will always know how loved she was, right from the beginning.

How adorable is this sweet baby?

Although he had other plans during his newborn portrait session (eating, being cuddled,

more eating...), we managed to get some pretty sweet sleepy poses! 

 

I can't wait to share the rest of the session images with proud mom and dad!

Making Memories this Holiday Without Loosing your Mind! | Montreal Family Photographer https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2017/12/how-to-document-the-holidays-without-loosing-your-mind-montreal-family-photographer A lovely close up image of drying pink flowers against the stark white of a frosted window.Pink Winter

Think back to last year’s winter holidays. What memories do you have? How did you capture the feelings and spirit of your celebrations? If it was all one big, tinsel-filled blur, worry not, I’ve got you covered this year!

 

Believe me, I know how hectic the holidays can get! Time commitments seem to multiply as family and friend invitations and obligations begin to role in. Then there is the shopping, the food prep, the wrapping, the decorating and the organizing of teachers, child care staff , coworker and charitable gifts. When the holiday dust finally settles, what will you have to show for the chaos? By implementing some of the tips and suggestions below, you can you create lasting memories for your family that can be enjoyed and even passed down as new traditions for future generations! 

 

Family Fun

Camping under the Christmas Tree

Get out the sleeping bags and snuggle up under the glow of the twinkle lights. Make some hot cocoa or smores and sing songs or chat about what you are all thankful for this holiday season.

 

Watch Old Home Videos

My children LOVE LOVE LOVE seeing their younger selves ham it up on video! Pop some corn and enjoy the laughs and the nostalgia of days gone by. Bonus points if you can pull out any videos from your own childhood!

 

See the Lights

As the days turn colder and the daylight shorter, we see our neighbourhoods come to life and transform into a glowing, magical world. Schedule some evening walks to take in these beautiful scenes. Children marvel at how dark it is outside (and that they are still awake!) and everyone can enjoy the crisp evening air and sweet sights!


 

Extended Family & Friends

Children’s Books for the Adults

As a parent, I have read at least one bazilion books to each of my chlldren. And while I do love reading aloud I think it a fine gift to give to grandparents, aunts, uncles and older cousins. Gifting a children’s book to the other adults in your child’s life creates a pocket of time for the person receiving the gift and your child, who will obviously ask for the book to be read immediately, and several times, with different voices! A personal favourite in our house is the book by B.J. Novak called The Book With No Pictures. Hilariously fun!



Helping Hands

Get your children involved at family gatherings by having a ‘Helping Hands’ jar with simple chores written on pieces of paper (you can use visual images for the wee ones). Chores can include taking coats from guests, passing out napkins and snacks, getting guests to participate in a holiday puzzle or game, clearing the dirty plates, laying out the dessert (although you may want to monitor this one!). Children develop a great sense of pride in helping out so don’t miss this opportunity to help them grow while divvying up the multitude of tasks on your holiday list!

 

Memory Makers

Ornament Boxes

Since my mother passed away, 20 Christmases ago, I have had the annual joy (and tears!) of unboxing all of the ornaments from my childhood home. I love taking them out every year, reminiscing about which one was given by whom and when. Which were homemade and which store bought ones hold special meaning. A tradition I’ve continued is gifting an ornament to my husband and to each of my children. Each child will eventually have a box full of ornaments to take with them when they have their own trees to deck!

 

Aaannnnnd Action!

One Winter Holiday, my husband had the idea of creating our own Family Movie. Together with our then 5 year old son and 2 year old daughter, we scraped together a loose outline that quickly developed into a full feature! (My husband was really into this and so he actually drew up storyboard with every scene laid out!). We spent an entire day filming The Fantastics and it was awesome family fun! Regardless of the final product (videographers we were not!), we created space and time to be together, playing characters, creating costumes and just having a ball! If you are curious about our home movie, you can check it out here!

 

Whatever activities you decide to implement this holiday season, do them with

slow intention and savour every (non-stressed out) moment!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Montreal Newborn Photography Magic | baby posing safety https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2017/12/montreal-newborn-photography-magic-baby-posing-safety In the realm of newborn photography experts agree that baby posing safety is the most important aspect of what we do. We are trusted to handle the world's most precious cargo and we need to take that responsibility seriously. Getting those sweet, dreamy images means so much more than "pushing a button" or letting my "awesome camera" take a picture. It is ensuring baby is comfortable, content and above all, safe. 

A beautiful composite image of a newborn baby boy in the potato sack pose with Tanis Saucier Photography in Montreal

The above pose is called the "Potato Sack". It's okay to laugh out loud at that one! Every niche has it's own terminology, right?

To achieve this and other advanced newborn portrait poses most professional photographers choose turn to the magic of photoshop. Unless baby is lying comfortably on his or her back, soundly sleeping in a secure set-up, like a basket or bucket, hands need to be supporting their tiny and very wobbly frame at all times.

If I get requests for these types of advanced poses I will either have my assistant scheduled for that session or I will employ the steady hands of mom or dad.

Below is a collage of images straight out of camera (SOOC). I always get one image of the scene all by itself and then instruct my assistant/mom/dad with safety positioning to ensure that I get 3 clean shots of the different parts of baby's body, hairline and face.

A collage of images showing the importance of newborn safety during a photo session and always having supporting hands on baby while doing more advanced poses like the Potato Sack pose. Once the session is over, the real magic begins! It is always a challenge to nail the in camera angles so that my post production workflow is quick and seamless.

Carefully and with much zooming in and out, I layer the images and remove what I don't want ( a big, hairy man arm!).

The result of my labour is (hopefully!) flawless and many who happen upon the image in their Facebook newsfeed may believe that this is just the way that babies hang out. But now you know the truth and you can help spread the word about newborn portrait baby-safety!

Of course, I take my composited image and transform it further with my hand editing. Finally, it is deemed worthy for the parents to oooohhhh and shhhhhh over!

Beautiful Maternity Mama | Montreal Maternity Photographer https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2017/6/beautiful-maternity-mama-montreal-maternity-photographer  

Being pregnant will change your body, your mind and your heart, forever! Your body will grow, nourish and protect the wee little life inside of you. Your pre-pregnant 'look' will return but your body is changed forever. It has learned and felt the beauty, pain and sweetness of birth. It can never unlearn that. 

 

Your mind will change too...you will have fears you didn't know were possible! You will wonder how you had time to do so much nothing before baby came along. You will become forgetful and stay that way, pretty much from now on (TMI?). You mind will also learn to multi-task like you've never known. Sure, you may not be able to recall your 23-digit bank number that you've known by heart for years, but you will certainly be able to feed your baby while making a shopping list and folding the third load of laundry.

Your heart will, of course, grow (literally in volume with blood!). Your emotional heart will grow to bursting, sometimes many times an hour! The loveliest of love is the love for your baby. It can be so overwhelming that you come to understand how much we, as women, have within us. We are magical and these maternal changes must be celebrated!

 

This beautiful mama's maternity session was one such celebration. Dramatic and glamorous. Beautiful and playful. A woman, growing a tiny human to love, nourish and protect.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This mama is already rocking motherhood! Congratulations!

 

 

It's never too early to book your maternity session. Contact Tanis today to set up a pre-consultation to chat about celebrating your pregnancy and journey into motherhood.

It truly is a small world! This mama to be reached out to me to photograph her second pregnancy. When we chatted on the phone for the planning of the session I had no idea who I was talking to! When the family walked in the door the day of the maternity session I got a strange sense of familiarity. When I spoke to my husband about it later on that day we realized that this very mama was the doctor present when I gave birth to my baby girl 5 years earlier!!! Oh how life works in mysterious ways...

This little peanut was brought to me at close to 5 weeks new! It is rare that I can book last-minute newborn sessions when baby is already here but luckily I had space in my schedule. I'm so glad I did because baby James was a dream to cuddle and photograph! Newborn Baby Boy on Side with Hands on Face Wrapped in GreyNewborn Baby Boy on Side with Hands on Face Wrapped in Grey

 

Mom and Dad opted for a session with grey tones. Perfection!

Getting parent poses is crucial, even though I know most moms and dads are feeling exhausted and less than picture-perfect... It is so important for baby that you capture the love you have for him right from the beginning.

Exist in photos for your children!

Milestone-Portrait-Session | Montreal Children's Photography https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2017/5/milestone-portrait-session-montreal-childrens-photography This sweet boy is a return newborn client and I was so happy to have him in my studio again.

When mama asked for a circus-themed portrait session to celebrate his one-year milestone I squealed with excitement! We opted for doughnuts instead of the traditional cakes mash session.

He certainly seemed to like my set-up!

At one point during the 3-hour session, little Miss decided she was done with sleeping! I love the wide-eyed images almost as much as the sleeping ones.

Mom and Dad are so in love with this little person and it's easy to see why! Look at these tiny details!!

I always grab my macro lens to capture these sweet baby bits.

Now, it's easy to see where this adorable and beautiful baby gets his stunning looks!

I was so excited to take these family portraits.

This pose is called "The Potato Sack" and I love it! This is done as a composite, for baby's safety. Hands were always on baby and I used my editing skills to create the resulting magic look of baby sitting up on his own! Newborn posing requires training on safety, first and foremost!

These poses below are done on the 'Bean Bag' which is a large, malleable surface used by professional photographers. It allows us to be close to baby and to make those tiny adjustments needed to get these amazing shots.

Beautiful Baby Boy | Montreal Newborn Photography https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2016/5/beautiful-baby-boy-montreal-newborn-photography Baby Bits!

This beautiful little guy was a first for me. I have been waiting a long time for him to come into my studio. I always take time to capture the tiny details of toes and lips... those itty bits that will only continue to grow as time moves on. Notice the hair whorls on his perfect head? Most babies are born with one swirl but this little man was born with two! I have only seen images of this phenomenon and now I have captured it!

What's not to love about this guy?

Romeo's Milestone Session | Montreal Toddler Portraits https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2016/5/romeos-milestone-session-montreal-toddler-portraits This little man came to me for his Milestone Session a few years after I photographed his big sister's Milestone

Portraits and we couldn't have had a better time!

Romeo was all charm and smiles and with a little coaxing a few bites of cookie, he stole my heart!

Chez Doris | Helping the community one portrait at a time https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2016/4/chez-doris-helping-the-community-one-portrait-at-a-time So a couple months ago I came across a post on Facebook that jumped out at me. Chez Doris is a Montreal organization that runs a day shelter for women in need in Montreal. My late mother's name is Doris and although we were never homeless, raising 7 daughters on her own had us come close a few times. I decided to reach out to Marina Boulos-Winton, executive director of Chez Doris to see how I could get involved. 

 

The Board of Directors of Chez Doris

We decided to use my talents to update the Board of Directors' portraits for the website. They were an amazing bunch of people to work with! We completed 11 individual head shots and two group images in just over one hour!

It was fast, fun and a feel-good time all around.

Although little J is 3 months, I just had to get my macro lens out to capture the sweet "baby bits" that will be teenage-sized in the blink of an eye...

Sweet newborn baby girl | Montreal newborn portrait session https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2016/1/sweet-newborn-baby-girl-montreal-newborn-portrait-session This session took my breath away. Baby L was such a good and sleepy girl that it was a matter of deciding when to stop... I could have photographed her all day long!

Her big sister was also a sport. It can be difficult to get children engaged in a portrait session, especially with a new sibling in the mix, but it is obvious that the bond is strong between these two already.

I love the simplicity of this portrait and the softness of the set up.

Fitting for this little princess to have a crown. So sweet!

I was thrilled when Mom contacted me to do a milestone session as a Father's Day surprise!

I was not prepared for how much little James had grown and changed! Now so full of expression and as plump as can be!

Family Portraits | Montreal Family Photography https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2015/7/family-portraits-montreal-family-photography When mom first contacted me, she was very interested in getting some sweet newborn images of her 3rd child. However, when I learned that baby was already close to 2 months old I let mom know that getting those squishy, posed and sleepy newborn shots might be a challenge. So we went ahead to capture a session with the focus being on the siblings and their loving relationship as well as capturing the amazing bond of this stunning family of five.

Big brother and big sister were wonderful at following my directions and were really great with their sweet little sister! So many hugs and kisses were passed around during the session!

and then.... baby 'A' fell fast asleep! So I scrambled to create a set up, wrapped her oh-so gently and captured these sweet baby moments...

Montreal Newborn Portrait Photographer | Little Liam https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2015/4/montreal-newborn-portrait-photographer-little-liam I was over the moon when beautiful mama, Rim and 8-days new baby Liam came into my studio for his newborn portrait photo session. As a newborn photographer, I can get pretty excited at the sight of something as natural as hair! Although it was a slow start, as baby wanted to feed and cuddle with mom, once he was good and full and in that sweet, milk-induced sleepy state he was such a great little model!  A sleepy newborn baby boy snuggles into a soft fluffy wool during his newborn photo session in Montreal with Tanis Saucier PhotographyBaby Boy

He was born with style! Look at that gorgeous hair and charming smile... he has such amazing expressions for a  newborn. I could have photographed him all day! (and no, he was not tooting or pooping! Tee Hee!)

Little Miss Olivia didn't want to miss a thing during her newborn portrait session! How wonderful is the connection? I know as a newborn photographer I strive to get those sleepy, curly shots that make hearts melt but there is something so amazingly pure when a newborn looks into the camera lens...

Newborn Model Call | Montreal Newborn Photography https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2015/2/newborn-model-call-montreal-newborn-photography I am always on the hunt for new textures, wraps and bonnets to keep my newborn photography sessions fresh and unique. I have even dabbled in creating my own pants & hat sets like this one below! (which you can read about here). Although it is time consuming, these projects are so fulfilling when I get to use them in a session!

There are some things though, that I just cannot make. I leave the amazing blankets, wraps and flokati rugs to the experts! As a newborn photographer, I always want to highlight the newborn and so I often choose simple set ups with gentle colours. I have received a new shipment of ' Farm Fluff' which is made from natural wool and comes in a variety of colours. I cannot wait to try them out! Think cotton candy-like fluff in soft beige, baby pink and emerald green....

I have also received some sweet bonnets and some new backdrops too! I want to perfect the look of these new props and to do so, I am holding a model call for babies due at the end of this month (february 2015) and the beginning of March, 2015. These sessions will be for baby only and will be a short 90-minutes (compared to 2-4 hours where I photograph baby, siblings as well as parent and family portraits). Feel free to share this blog with any and all moms who are expecting a new arrival soon!

Montreal Newborn Photography of a 7 day old boy in beige knit pants and hat setWelcome baby boy!

I am so happy to have met Karen and Guillaume at Melons and Clementines during my holiday mini session event. Karen's newest member had already arrived and she inquired about a new-born session. I usually meet with families who are interested in capturing their newborn baby when they are still pregnant and so the timing of our meeting was quite serendipitous! We set up an appointment to meet again for our pre-consultation where I was able to show them my wonderful products, answer their questions and discuss details of the session. I was able to visit their home two days later for our session date! It is so important to document these fleeting newborn beings... they are only this small for so long....

Enjoy these images... you can just feel the family comfort and closeness that a new baby brings into the home.

You may have heard about or have even seen images of the latest craze to hit the photography scene... Cake Smash Sessions are all the rage to capture that one-year milestone. And I am here to say that they are fantastic!

When Miss J's mom suggested a Cake Smash Session for her sweet daughter's 3rd birthday, I jumped on it! If a one year old can smash a cake, a three year old could only do it that much better. 

We set the scene, got the cake, the balloons and the perfect outfit and set out to capture the exhilaration that can only come from being allowed to do something you wouldn't normally be allowed to do! However, Miss J is such a beautiful little living porcelain doll that I couldn't just jump straight into the bashing and mashing and messiness right away... so we played dress up and had a ton of silly fun...

Montreal Newborn Photography | Making Sweet Memories https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2014/10/montreal-newborn-photography-making-sweet-memories This little bundle of sweetness was photographed in my home studio. Although I do travel to client's homes, when I am able to do a session in my home, all available backgrounds, wraps and props are at my disposal. We were able to get a wide variety poses and looks in just a short amount of time. Newborn sessions can take anywhere from 2-4 hours because we go with the flow, take time for feedings, changes and soothing cuddles. But Miss Ines came to me completely prepared ( a BIG nod to mom who followed my pre-session instructions!!) and the session was completed in under an hour and a half. I know my photog friends are a wee bit jealous of this session and I can only hope to have more babies sleep so well during my newborn photography sessions!

Montreal Children's Photographer | In-home Portrait Session https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2014/10/montreal-childrens-photographer-in-home-portrait-session I was lucky enough to have had a session with a pair of sweet sisters this past summer... this most recent Little Love Session features two sweet brothers...and what a handsome pair they are! The boys were so excited when I arrived at their home with all my studio lights and backdrops, transforming their dinning room into something seemingly magical to them...

When I plan for an in-home session I collaborate with the clients in a pre-consultation to learn about the style of images they are after. Mom and Dad love the simplicity of a black background so that was our main focus. I bring all necessary equipment with me for in-home portrait sessions as well as a whole lot of energy and patience!

I even bring fishy crackers.... a little salty-crunchy encouragement always makes a Little Love session run smoothly!

Time for some family portraits too!

Montreal Breastfeeding Portrait Photographer | Breastfeeding Challenge 2014 https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2014/10/montreal-breastfeeding-portrait-photographer-breastfeeding-challenge-2014 I am a resource support Mama with the organization Nourri-Source. I had extremely trying times breastfeeding not one but both of my babies. As 'natural' as breastfeeding is, it is NOT easy. But, I was warmly taken under the wings of this wonderful organization and was supported through the rough bouts of breastfeeding.... the engorgement, the poor latch, the cracked nipples, the flu-like symptoms of mastitis... and I am now a proud volunteer because I came through the other side. I feel so passionate about breastfeeding that I am more than happy to give my time over to new moms and dads to, at the very least, let them know it does get better, it does get easier and that one day, you will wake up and wonder why you ever had any issues breastfeeding at all.

Every year the Quintessence Foundation holds a world wide Breastfeeding Challenge to gather support and grow the awareness of the amazing health benefits of breastfeeding. This year I was honoured to volunteer my time to capture the event that was held at Melons & Clementines on  October 4th. We had 38 babies latched on simultaneously which will be recorded in the worldwide results on the Quintessence Foundation page.

A big thanks to my fellow volunteers from Nourri Source for all their hard work in preparing and donating their time and to Marie-Maude and Rénee of Melons and Clementines for their generous donation of the space in hosting the event! Spread the word... breast is best!

Montreal Newborn Portrait Photography | In-Home Baby Love Session https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2014/10/montreal-newborn-portrait-photography-in-home-baby-love-session I was supposed to be photographing this sweet little package while she was inside the womb, but she had other plans. And while I love, love, love capturing the amazing and transformative pregnant form, I was more than thrilled that T.M. made her appearance 3 and a half weeks early! Although she weighed just a little over 5 pounds at birth, she is the perfect picture of what a healthy and robust newborn baby should be. Welcome to the world little girl!

Re-aligning after pregnancy | Montreal Maternity Photography https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2014/9/re-aligning-after-pregnancy-montreal-maternity-photographer  

A light and ethereal image of a pregnant woman lying down on a bed with her eyes closed during her Montreal maternity photography session with Tanis Saucier PhotographyGlow o Pregnancy

Just how much has your womanly body had to endure so far in your lifetime? How many babies have you carried, delivered and continue to carry, (despite the fact that they have been walking on there own for years now?). How much time do you actually dedicate to YOU AND YOUR TEMPLE? That's what I thought. I am sure you can relate to the aches and pains of the everyday mother... the sore knees as you squat down to tie a shoe or pick up a wayward toy for the humpteenth time... the way your back screams as you haul your toddler up in your arms, already full with grocery bags, so you can cross the street before the light turns red... the pops and cracks your hips make because your bones and ligaments have been pushed to the extreme and still haven't seemed to return to their pre-pregnancy positions. I am here to (uncomfortably) stand up and say loudly to the world, "I PROMISE TO MAKE TIME FOR MY BODY!"  Because truly, it is all that I have that will, quite literally, carry me through the rest of this life! I want to be able to bike around town as long as I can. I want to be able to get down on the floor with grandbabies. I want to be able to dance at my 80th birthday. I need to start now to ensure that I have a fighting chance at these things and more.

We are all trying so desperately to juggle motherhood, domestic duties, careers and loving relationships that it seems like our basic well being always gets shuffled to the bottom of the 'To Do' pile. Maybe you are like me and you go through waves of good-for-your-body activity and feel great, only to get inundated with tasks, and laundry and life in general! Then comes the guilt which we all know is eased by chocolate, right? I will not give up my chocolate but, with the my aging bones as witness, I am going to pay closer attention to my body's signs. 

In my former life, about two or so dozen years ago, I was a dance major at Concordia University. It was certainly a passion and I was thrilled to be dancing every.single.day. I even took an additional year of modern technique classes, without credit, so I wouldn't have to stop what my body and soul craved. I LOVED every movement class and the way my body ate up the space around me. So, I know I have it in me to get moving again. But after kids and time and years of just moving to get from one place to the next, it is a challenge. In a desperate internet search to help heal my creaking, aching hip sockets I stumbled across a vaguely familiar term... Feldenkrais. My memory went straight to the span of days that we spent in anatomy class with a Feldenkrais instructor who taught us how to stand and sit. Being in my early 20's I obviously felt I had mastered these physical feats and with eyes rolling, I barely endured the painfully slow repetitive descent up and down, from standing, to sitting and back again, and over again and over and over. 

Fast forward 20 years and 2 babies later and I am getting reacquainted with the Feldenkrais method. Attention to how your body feels is at the core of this movement pedagogy. With slow, deliberate and oh-so gentle movement patterns targeting specific areas of your body, you can reset your body's alignment allowing for greater mobility, flexibility and ease of motion. Many of these exercises begin with you lying on the floor and that is definitely my kind of exercise! But seriously, I committed to these movement patterns at the height of my hip and lower back pain last year and was shocked at how quickly and thoroughly my body responded. Of course, when things are going well, there is no problem until there is a problem. So it is back to the Attention To Movement regime. Below is a sweet introduction to how we all can get back to the basics of our body mechanics.

Montreal Beauty Portrait Photography | Lovely Kelly https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2014/8/montreal-beauty-portrait-photography-lovely-kelly This amazing woman is a teacher, a mother to an awesome big little man, a trombone player, a runner and a beauty! The best part is that I get to call her friend. Kelly and I knew each other before the 2am feedings, before the school lunches, before our lives were given over to others... we knew each other when we just *were*.

I was able to escape my mama duties for a few days and jet off for a fun-filled visit with her in London, Ontario last summer. We packed so much of a good time into 3 days...I wish I could bottle it and take a sip from it every now and again! One of the things I wanted to do while visiting was get her in front of my camera. She has an incredible smile and, as you can see, the bluest eyes! So, with a mean chocolate martini recipe, selected wardrobe, hair and makeup and some upbeat music, we got down to it. 

Kelly was such a good sport and allowed me to take her

out around her neighbourhood to get a few outdoor field shots. Gorgeous!

We moved inside and enjoyed another martini (or three...hey no judgement, I was on vacation!) while we prepared for the indoor set up. 

Kelly rocked this tight little black dress! Some SERIOUS WOW, right?

I had the joy and pleasure of hanging out with Kelly and a bunch of her wonderful lady friends this past weekend when they came down to Montreal. A sumptuous dinner in the Old Port, a midnight masquerade boat cruise and dancing, dancing, dancing! Kelly and I even got to enjoy martinis together again! I can't wait until my next trip to London. Hopefully I will get the chance to do another beauty session with Kelly and all the other beauties I met!

Headshots Are Beautiful | Montreal Portrait Photography https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2014/8/headshots-are-beautiful-montreal-portrait-photography I had the pleasure of photographing Yvonne Pelling of Doula Care Montreal a few weeks back. I had a chance to pick Yvonne's brain about the practice of being a Doula. Enjoy this interview along with the fantastic portraits we captured during her session! She is a gorgeous woman, through and through!

A woman in a casual pose.Lovely Lady

 

"What sparked your interest in the art of becoming a Doula?"

"I never realized what "birth"days meant until I had my daughter Juniper.  From conception to delivery the childbearing year was filled with differing emotions, from overwhelming joy to complete fear of the unknown.  As labour was approaching, there came a point where both my husband and I knew that we could use some help and we sought out the unique service of a doula.  She educated us, empowered us to make our own choices, encouraged us and most importantly loved us.  She was there for us during the labour supporting us in a way that allowed me to work with the sensations of labour that were happening within me.  I started motherhood brave and a hero.  I was on cloud nine.  Every year as we celebrate Juniper getting 1 year older, we look back at her achievements, her milestones, who she is and who she wants to be. But part of me will always reflect back to the day that the power of love changed my life in the most beautiful way."

"When and how were you certified?"

"Six months after the birth of my daughter, my passion took over and I began the training to be a doula with the organization Motherwit.  Working with couples during the childbearing year allows me to take my passion to my work.  I have since also done workshops in acupressure and yoga Nidra for birth.  As well, I will soon begin to teach birth education classes.  Truly, from one parent to another it's the greatest gift I want to give people."

"What services do you offer to parents interested in hiring you?"

"Typically, for first time moms, I offer a package that includes 3 prenatal visits, attendance at the birth and a postpartum visit.  As well, I include email and phone support throughout the pregnancy. I am able to offer receipts for insurance should couple have private insurance."

In-Home Montreal Maternity Photography | Johana and her baby belly https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2014/7/maternity-photography-in-montreal-johana-and-her-baby-belly I have known Johana since before her first son could walk and now I am privileged with capturing her swelling belly and her soon-to-be second son. I was so excited when Johana decided to treat herself to a makeover and hair cut for the occasion. Pampering yourself before a life changing event, like birthing a second babe, is the best way to feel energized and ready for the next chapter. I arrived at her home with all my lighting and backdrop equipment and got straight to work...

The results of our pre-consultation led us to a wonderful variety of poses and looks. Johana was completely stunning and moved with so much grace and ease... not an easy task to a woman in her last month of pregnancy!

Montreal Head Shots | Miss Morganna https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2014/7/montreal-head-shots-miss-morganna Although I have narrowed down my shooting niche to babies, bellies and children, I do also do head shots. If you need an updated, professional image or two in a fun and relaxed atmosphere, we need to talk!

I had the absolute pleasure of having Morganna in my home studio last week and we knocked out some pretty stunning, real emotive images for her personal acting portfolio. Take a look at those eyes!

Gluten Free Sour Creme & Chive Crackers | Montreal Food Photography https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2014/6/gluten-free-chive-crackers-montreal-food-photography a delicious image of a stack of crispy and creamy sour creme and chive crackersGluten Free Chive Crackers

 

Yummy! Whether you are trying to lower your consumption of wheat or not, these homemade crackers are a must-try! Chalked-full of protein and just a hint of creaminess, these crackers melt in your mouth!

 

Taste Test!A sweet collage of a young redhead girl tasting the sour creme dough

 

I enlisted the help of my wee baker daughter. Doesn't she look sweet in her little red apron? She insisted on being part of every step in the cracker making process!

 

Mixing it up!A triptych of images of a cute redhead girl mixing up some cracker dough.

 

What you see is what you need! Three ingredients mixed together in a bowl. THREE!!!! (you can add a tsp of salt to make it 4 ingredients if you like). Mix 2 cups of almond flour with 1/3 cup of sour creme and about a 1/2 ~ 1 cup of chopped chives. You will have a nice sticky dough....

 

Rolling out the doughA lovely triptych of a young redhead girl rolling out cracker dough between sheets of parchment paper.

 

The image above shows my little baker rolling out the dough between two sheets of parchment paper... thin enough to get nice and crispy in the oven. Be sure to cut the rolled dough into cracker-like squares before baking. A pizza cutter makes this easy work!

 

Cutting the crackers...A close up shot of rolled dough cut into squares with a pizza cutter.

 

The last step is to bake these up in an oven, preheated to 250 degrees for 50-60 minutes. Check on the crackers frequently towards the end to prevent burning... you want lightly browned edges for the perfect cracker.

Mother's Day | Montreal Maternity, Nursing and Baby Photographer https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2014/5/mothers-day-montreal-maternity-nursing-and-baby-photographer  

 

I am so excited to share the beautiful results of my Mini Portrait Session Event that took place at Melons and Clementines last Thursday! My lens was loving every single thing about these stunning Mamas and their sweet babies!

First of all... If you are not familiar with the amazing cafe/boutique that is Melons et Clémentines and you are a breastfeeding mother or know a breastfeeding mother or a mom-to-be, you really need to visit! Co-owners, Marie-Maude Grenier and Renée Boudreau have created the perfect, one-stop-shop for all your breastfeeding and baby-wearing needs. Situated in NDG, it is also a bustling cafe that has child-friendly food, a play area and a meeting room that hosts a variety of classes (and photo sessions!). This is the place for moms to meet up and enjoy a coffee or tea in a warm, comfortable and welcoming environment. 

Thank you ladies for hosting this amazing event!

Melons et Clémentines

 

The mamas and babies were truly wonderful and so trusting of me... the time flew by and the images showing up on the back of my camera were touching, tender and full of love! I knew I had to immediately download the images and get to work on the editing. I wanted to have them ready for showing clients in time for Mother's Day. Editing three sessions and getting them ready for the in-person viewing appointment in such a short time was a challenge but I am proud to say.... mission accomplished! 

It was hard not to tear up during the shoot at times...flooded with memories of my own breastfeeding days... the sweet bond between these Mamas and their babes proves just how important physical closeness is.

The antibodies, the nutrition, the nourishment, the comfort, the trust and the amazing bond that is established between mother and babe at the breast... aside from actually growing a human being inside you, breastfeeding truly is the second most amazing super power!

For those of you with older children you know that the old adage, "They grow up so fast" is true. It seems that all of a sudden your children are eating from a plate, talking up a storm and walking away from you... I am so happy to have captured the spirit of this early and precious time! And what a spirit on this little bundle of joy below ... doesn't she have the BEST expressions?

Sweet memories that will last a lifetime... Don't you just adore creamy baby skin? This mama and baby are just so lovely together. I can't wait to deliver their beautiful prints so they can get them up on the walls in the nursery to look at and admire through the years.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to each of these mamas for trusting me to capture such intimate and tender moments. Your beautiful babies will be so grateful to look upon the two of you together in the years to come! 

Happy Mother's Day to all mothers celebrating... may you all be as spoiled as your children are with love on this day and everyday!

Mothering in Montreal | healthy-easy-fruit-roll-ups https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2014/4/mothering-in-montreal-healthy-easy-fruit-roll-ups  

I just can't do it. I cannot bring myself to buy those individual, prepackaged 'goodies' for my son's lunches. So many things run through my mind in the instant that my son's eyes meet the sparkly, neon, glittery 'foods' that are conveniently aimed at the tip of his nose... all that wasted paper, plastic wrap, packaging, the sugar and/or glucose, the red dye # 9, the energy, the resources and the time taken to create them, the factory workers who work shift work to get it to where it is...in front of me and my 5 year old son. All this for the two minutes or so that it will take to unwrap, consume and somehow digest it. Not in my cart Sally.
 
Trying to instil a love of whole, real food in a world that is bent on sugar pushing and chemical colouring takes a creative mind... and Pinterest. Did I ever tell you about my love affair with that amazing, time suck of a website? For all its addiction-forming faults it is a goldmine when researching ways to get your kids to eat 'what all the other kids eat' but with ingredients you actually recognize.
 
A collage of images showing a cute toy tea setting with homemade fruit roll ups.Homemade Fruit Roll Ups
 
The latest school-snack-hack attempt was the fruit roll. Again, credit to this recipe (found via Pinterest) goes to Our Best Bites food blogger where the recipes (and many more!) can be found here. These sweet jewels were made with 2 ingredients... TWO! 3 cups of ripe strawberries and a half cup of honey, blitzed in the blender until smooth and poured onto a lined cookie sheet... the only caveat is that it takes about 8 hours for these chewy strips to be good and done. The idea is to basically dry the puree in your oven on the lowest heat setting possible (mine was at 170°F). 
 
A lovely, whimsical image of a child's tea setting with homemade fruit roll ups.Tea Time!
 
The variety for these fruit roll ups is as endless as the fruit combo possibilties. For the next batch, I think I will try out an exotic mango lassie recipe!  I will free up my oven during the daytime, however, and whip this recipe up in the evenings and set it to 'dry' before I go to bed. Fruit roll ups for breakfast, anyone? These are simple, elegant and wholesome and best of all, they have been kid tested and kid approved!

Mini Portrait Sessions | Montreal Maternity and & Nursing Photography https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2014/4/mini-portrait-sessions-montreal-maternity-and-nursing-photography I have been blessed with two sweet, rambunctious and healthy children. Both are well past those quiet, intimate moments of breastfeeding and I have exactly two pictures that celebrate the amazing but all-too-brief times we shared together. Breastfeeding did NOT come naturally for me. I had many bouts of mastitis and cracked nipples... not just with one but with both my children. I was so very grateful to get the help I needed from the Montreal Nourri Source program that runs out of the many CLSC's across Montreal. So grateful, in fact, that I am now a volunteer who gets to give back and support moms who are having a less-than awesome experience with breastfeeding. Some woman just cannot breastfeed. Although it is a small percentage, it does happen that a woman's breasts just don't produce enough milk to sustain feedings. Other woman choose not to breastfeed for a variety of reasons and I am not passing any judgement on those who decide to formula feed their babies. It is a choice and whatever the situation or choice made, I am just pleased to see that the trend towards breastfeeding is growing again and being encouraged.

We have come a long way since I was born. No one was breastfed in my family. I was shocked to learn that my early newborn 'nutritional needs' were met with home-made formula ... a concoction made up of milk, powdered milk and corn syrup. Yes ladies and gentlemen, corn syrup!!! In the 50's, 60's and early 70's the trend in breastfeeding, like the birth process itself, was turing clinical. Mother's didn't know best and were being told and sold on 'benefits' of feeding your child formula.  Now breastfeeding is being embraced as the amazing and awesome super food that it is. I love that breastfeeding is finally getting the attention and respect it deserves. I am thrilled when I see the 'Breast Feeding Friendly" signs on store doors and cafe walls. I wholeheartedly support choice and in no way want to 'shame' mothers who choose not to or are unable to breastfeed. I am simply content that, with much trial and error, I was able to choose breastfeeding.

These two images are the 'proof' that my children continued to benefit from my direct nourishment. They both self-weaned around the 15 month mark and with little more than a passing fancy to shove a tiny hand down my top, it was over. The freedom I felt was only slightly overshadowed with the twinge of nostalgia for those close, quiet moments that belonged only between us. A truly magical event.

The dark and very pixelated image to the left was taken by my partner with our very low quality point & shoot camera. Oscar was all but 3 tiny months here. It is far from clear, perfect or technically sound but it is all that I have to remember our breastfeeding time together and I adore it. Rowan, in the image above, was a mere 13 weeks and although it was taken with my DSLR camera, it is also the only image I have of her at my breast. I cherish these images because they capture a part of who I was as a mother. A very important part that I am so very proud of.

 

 

I want to give this opportunity to all breastfeeding moms so I am announcing my Maternity & Nursing Mini Sessions Event! On May 1st I will be holding studio-style mini sessions at Melons and Clementines for moms-to-be and nursing moms who want gorgeous images that will tell a part of your story as a mother.

If you are expecting and will be 7 months pregnant or more on May 1st or if you are a mother who enjoys the breastfeeding experience, I welcome you to celebrate these milestones with a portrait session. The session appointments are limited to 8 so don't delay in getting your spot today! Give me a call at 514-935-7266, email me at tanis.saucier@gmail.com or click HERE to send me a message.

Montreal Maternity Photography| Fine Art Portrait Session https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2014/3/montreal-fine-art-maternity-portrait-session TAKE NOTE: THIS POST CONTAINS NUDITY. Beautiful, powerful, maternal nudity.

The transformation toward motherhood starts off so innocently, doesn't it? At first, there are very few outward signs of what is brewing within... a bit of nausea, tender breasts and the ability to sleep practically anywhere. But in a few short months the changes become obvious and continue as your body blooms to a beautiful fullness. The growing of a baby is nothing short of a superpower that should be admire and revered!

This second time mom-to-be is simply stunning and I am so very honoured that she chose me to help celebrate and commemorate her body in bloom. Nikki specifically requested fine art-styled Black & White nudes and as a photographer, I leapt at the opportunity.

Although I adore Black & White images, especially dramatically lit images, Nikki's skin tone is so

lovely that I had to include some with colour.

 Nikki was a natural in front of the lens. Although pregnancy can be a time of great physical and emotional strain, this mama embraced her form and allowed me to gently pose her in flattering ways. She will now have these images forever to look back on in awe and amazement!

A beautiful triptych of low key, dramatic, studio-lit  nude maternity images. Trio of a baby belly

I have been blessed with the gift of growing two babies inside me. I actually really loved being pregnant. I remember the exact moments with each babe, the exact place I was in when I first felt their flutter deep down inside me. As those movements grew in strength and frequency I was reassured... I could do this... I was built to do this! I was most proud of my maternal shape...the curves, the girth, the knowledge that I was carrying a little human, tucked away under my heart, that was dependant on me for its every need. 

You are so ready for this next leap Nikki. I absolutely loved getting to know you and your soon-to-grow family. I thoroughly enjoyed photographing this session, editing this session and then getting to see your reaction and your selections at your in-person viewing appointment. I am glad too, that I was able to deliver your gorgeous prints in time for you and your family to linger over and enjoy before baby arrives! You are beautiful and strong and your body and baby are ready to begin the final journey.

She's here, she's here!

Little Penelope was a dream baby. Just look at her! I had the pleasure of photographing little P in her home two weeks ago. Tiny and delicate with quite the pair of lungs, Miss Penelope had my heart as I held her, stroked her mop of hair and posed her during her first ever photo session.

Little Penelope is the 3rd child but first girl for proud mom and dad and a little sister to brothers Sam and Bentley- a surprise well worth waiting 9 months for!

For all you parents who are in the 'trio of children' club I say, hats off. While I swaddled, sang, shushed, cooed, rocked and fussed over baby P during the 3 hour session, there was no rest to be had for mom or dad with two boys on the scene! But those boys were very helpful and cooperative when it was there turn in front of the camera... a little treat promised afterwards didn't hurt either!

These sessions are, by far, my most favourite sessions to do. I am done with having babies of my own but that newborn smell... the way their mouths pucker and bunch up... the moments of total silence except for the tiny breath rhythmically moving in your arms... I inhaled those moments with my 2 babies and it filled me completely. I am giddy with excitement each time I am called upon to do a newborn session... I get to experience a few more moments.

I have taken my fair share of portraits of cutie pies in the past, but this is the first 'furry' variety I have had the pleasure of including in my sessions. Meet Truffles... a sweet, docile Schnauzer who loves her dried chicken bits! Such a good looking gal who just celebrated her 16th birthday... quite the milestone for a little doggy. Her doting owners, Donna & Mike, are equally charming and well put together, don't you agree?

I had the opportunity of visiting this smashing trio a few weeks ago. We chatted about children, work, schooling and a great number of things in between as I set to work setting up  my studio lights and backdrops. Can you believe that this is the first portrait that Mike and Donna have of themselves since their wedding day? What an honour to capture their lively spirit and fun-loving ways!

Sweet! When I asked about their relationship and probed for some insight into sustaining a loving relationship, Mike was quick to say, "Always agree with your wife." Well played Mike, well played!

Truffles was up for some posing so I was able to get her 'sitting pretty' for the camera... with the help of some treats from Donna!

I am so thrilled to have spent time with these people (really, Truffles counts as one!). I look forward to getting their wall portrait and prints to them so they can relive and enjoy these moments in time.

What was your New Year's resolution? I bet it had something to do with your exercise habits (or lack thereof!) or your diet, or both. Perhaps you are considering restricting carbs, becoming vegan or taking up Yoga. Well this bread loving, meat eater can only offer up a lovely series of yoga poses as inspiration to your newfound regime. Although I have done Yoga classes in the past and occasionally attempt the sun salutation series (often with a young child or two riding my back), I am far from knowing much about this ancient and sacred practice.

 

Elizabeth MacKinnon is a gentle Yoga instructor from Ottawa, Ontario whose grace and strength and beauty come nicely packaged in her petit frame. We spent a morning together early in December, in studio, to capture some pretty amazing images for her budding Yoga business.

Elizabeth and I met in another life, (seriously, like decades ago!) in the Contemporary Dance Program at Concordia University. (Surprise! I promise to post more about my experience from this time in my life at a later date!). I am in awe of her commitment to this craft and to her devotion to keeping her body in a healthy state. Not only is she a certified yoga instructor, Elizabeth still collaborates, dances and performs! My dancing has long been restricted to my living room, again with one or two children riding my back. Sigh.

Montreal Children's Photographer |Miss Stella's In home portrait session https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2013/12/montreal-childrens-photographer-miss-stella-s-in-home-portrait-session There are poignant moments in your life that allow you a glimpse of yourself through the eyes of another. It is a test to your character, your ego and your perception of self. Children are amazing at letting you know just what they think of you... 

A lovely image of a little blond haired girl posing in a red dress on a white bear blanket during her home portrait session.What a doll!

Miss Stella and I had not met prior to me showing up at her home with all my gear, backdrops, reflectors, faux flooring , rug and camera... an entrance that can be a little intimidating for anyone, let alone a child under 3 feet high! This was going to be a mini in-home session and so every second counts. I am always nervous about establishing a good bond with the children I photograph. Without a bonafide connection, the images captured would be mostly of a scared or crying child. Stella made this part of my job so easy, as she ran to me, open arms upon my arrival! What a way to start off a session, right?

Now, I hadn't yet met Oscar but, as many of you know, his name automatically creates a connection between us. My son is 5 year old Oscar. Paulina's Oscar is under 2. He was the perfect gentleman. He obliged me with my camera and my (sometimes successful!) attempts to get his attention. Once I showed him the back of the camera with his image magically in it, he was more interested in the process and with the helpful big sister, I think we got some pretty memorable shots.

Dominique, the mother of these two stunning children, was the winner of one of two Gift Sessions I donated to the Route du Lait Breastfeeding Challenge that was held in October. So many moms and babies turned out for the event to make it a total success. I am so happy that this family won and that I got to be a part of helping them create some memories. Thank you family!

This is Elina, my amazing and (sadly!) former Make Up artist! She is one of the sweetest people I have ever met. So young, so talented and wise beyond her years. Elina has moved on to bigger and better things in a different city, so look out new city! Before she jetted off, I was able to get her into a beautifully sun lit studio to kick around and have some fun. These are some of my absolute favourites! She is pure Beauty, inside and out.

I wish you every the very best on your new adventures Elina!

Stay true to your inner beauty, always!

Happy Birthday to Me! | Montreal New Born Photography https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2013/8/happy-birthday-to-me-montreal-new-born-photography Oh how I wish, wish, wish I had a picture of me, as I was 42 years ago, naked and chubby and sleepy... ignorantly at peace with the world! The closest I can get to that is to look upon this sweet image above. This is my daughter and she was just 6 days new. So pink! So squishy! So utterly perfect! Sigh. Unfortunately for me, being born the last of 7 girls left little time for my mother to snap photos of yet another baby, let alone create elaborate settings, set up studio lighting,  incorporate special props and finish with time-intensive post-processing for baby pics of lil' ol' me. In a way, being born last helped to solidify my desire to take pictures! (and you can read more about that here).

Since this day, I have been itching to do more and more Newborn Baby Love Sessions. I am done having babes of my own and I want more than anything to give new parents the gift of the past... because that is exactly what everything is... every moment, every hiccup, every roll of chub, every pouty lip, smile, tear and laugh becomes, the past. My dear daughter will be two this fall and I cannot believe the transformation. I am so glad I took the time to set up my studio, props and sets so that now I can stare up at my peanut with wonder and joy. It is so hard to recall the little details, the bumps and curves, the softness. Let's face it, the first 3 weeks (or 6!) of being home with a new baby is a blur at best!  I don't quite know how I called up the strength and energy to pull this off but in the back of my mind I knew that after day 10, newborn shoots are so-much-harder. They straighten out, they flail, they are more alert, less sleepy and they get that lovely newbie acne and craddle cap! It was a 'now or never' moment and we made it through to the other side. Although I have a ton of pictures of my first born son (a ton!), I was not in the full-on photo session phase of my photography and a lot of the pictures are, well... to be honest, dark, blurry, fuzzy messes! I treasure every single one of them but I am certain that in some distant future I will inevitably get the old, "Why don't I have nice baby pictures like my sister?" I'll keep you posted on that one!

Anyway, back to my birthday and a present for you (or someone you know!). In honour of everything sweet and good, I am putting out a casting call for newborn babes. If you or someone you know will be expecting a squishy package in late September or early October and truly wants those first looks captured to have forever to put up on their walls and in their wallets, get in touch with me ASAP! Click the "Contact" link at the top and send me an email detailing the expected date of birth, mother's name and phone number. I will accept up to 4 babies. Newborn shoots take A LOT of planning and prepping and the sooner I can make contact with the moms and dads to-be, the better. (I require at least one face-to-face meeting with the mom and/or dad prior to the shoot). Everything that is and is not included in these sessions will be discussed when we meet. No pressure, either. We will plan to meet for a coffee or tea or ice cream (your choice, my treat!) in a convenient spot somewhere and go from there.

Happy Birthday To Me!

Eating Healthy, Local Choices | Montreal Food Photography https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2013/7/eating-healthy-montreal-food-photography An image of a plate of Soy bean Edamame with 4 beans out of the shells and the beans in their shells in the background So, I am on this diet of sorts. Not to loose weight... not to fit into 'skinny jeans'.... but to live a full and healthy life. The 'diet' is simply eating the cleanest, freshest food I possibly can. If the names of things that go into my foods don't fit properly in my mouth than neither does the food!

With summer in its full, sweltering swing comes the many awesome markets around the island of Montreal. Our fav stop is the Jean Talon Market and our finest purchase there is the highly anticipated, seasonal Fresh Corn from  The King of Corn / Le Roi du Mais, that also supply freshly boiled cobs with butter and salt to taste! We have to wait a bit longer, as the corn season is not yet upon us. Let me assure you, it is worth the wait.

As a family, we have made the decision to (do our very best to!) eat seasonal, local food. I cringe a little now when I go to buy some juicy Bosc pairs and see that they have travelled all the way from Argentina. Even at the markets, you can find surprises... I never used to take the time to look at the stickers or labels. In my never-ending quest to enjoy the moments, I now choose to slow down, take some time and read. I inform myself, teach my children the information and make better choices.

Two weekends ago, we went on a family outing on a guided, informative tour of Lufa Farms. If you haven't heard of them yet, you will. Urban, rooftop gardening is something that I believe is in our global future. As cities become more congested and farming becomes less about providing healthy, natural produce and more about mass production, we will come to rely on the local initiatives like Lufa Farms. You can read more about Lufa farms here and can even set up your own tour to see first hand, how urban spaces can contribute to the health of a city.

We wanted to test their produce so we signed up for a basket which, unlike some food basket programs, is completely customizable. It begins with a set produce basket that you can then switch around, delete and add to as you wish. This is all done at the online 'Market Place" and is very easy to navigate. Lufa Farms also partners with other surrounding area farms to provide more than just produce, like fresh baked breads, chutneys, jams, spices, oils and other food fair. In our trial basket ($32) we selected Oakleaf lettuce, Rainbow Swiss Chard, Broccoli, Kholrabi, two bouquets of Greens, Sunflower Microgreen Shoots and the most delicious bag of Dried Cranberries I've ever tasted. We did order the lovely flowering Lebanese Cucumbers and a head of Cauliflower as well but they were missing from our basket. A quick call to Lufa Farms and I was immediately speaking to a real person who simply credited my account the amount of the missing produce and apologized for the error. I can see how most of this produce would be gobbled up within a few days and so the medium basket we chose will probably need to be upgraded to comfortably feed our family of four. Although the minimum medium basket price must be met, you can add as much as you like!

I am a mom and I want to.... more importantly... NEED to be around for a long time. I want that time to be healthy and productive while doing as little damage to my surroundings as possible. Little steps are where we can all begin. Go ahead and toddle around the markets. Take a step towards being an informed consumer and read the stickers on your pears. Check out Lufa Farms and the what they are working towards. Decide for yourself whether you really need that bag of organic apples that come from far away places or if you can settle for the locally grown variety. Most of all, slow down and be sure to enjoy every bite of food that passes your lips!

 

Enjoy the view,

Tanis

What is it? | Extreme Closeups in Photography https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2013/7/what-is-it-extreme-closeups-in-photography a close up of something curvy and blue and white

 

What is it?

... this week's image snippet!

 

 

 

Last week, I decided to make a commitment to fun. The soggy weather, the thick wall of humidity, and cabin fever, made for a cranky bunch! It was weighing heavy and I wanted fun, darn it! My first order in the business of fun was to introduce a weekly Guessing Game for everyone... the extreme closeup last week of beige and brown specs turned out to be a very easy guess for most of you. Cheers to all who participated. The image 'Walking on Eggshells" is actually a self-portrait of sorts! This was shot for use as a Stock photo and has sold numerous times! Pretty neat that I have a famous foot, out there somewhere... My interest in photography has shifted over the years and for the last 3 years I have been drawn to the intimate and personal side of  portraiture. A true collaboration with the subject through the very nature of the interaction. But, my metaphoric image of a foot hovering above broken eggshells brought me back to the fun aspects of stock imagery. Working with inanimate objects to create the exact image that I hold in my mind's eye. It is this art of getting lost in the attention to details, that makes the rest of the world drop away and forces me to slow down and have fun! As time intensive as it is to set everything up, get the lighting just right, make sure everything is clean and easy to process, I really love the technical aspect of shooting for stock. I think I will bring out the ol' studio lights again the next time it rains!

Now, with the weather less balmy, I have settled in on my definition of fun... it is less about 'making' fun happen and more about fully 'experiencing' the fun that is already happening around me. To consciously let go of all  unnecessary  things, to slow way down, to lock focus on this moment with Fun ... quietly lying on the floor with my 20 month old...piggy backs to bed and an extra bedtime song... spontaneous family dance parties that end in bubbly laughter... briefly holding hands in the kitchen while cooking dinner...silently planning an artistic vision and bringing it to fruition. Fun! I hope you continue to play along with my guessing game and I wish you little feelings of fun throughout your day. 

Enjoy the view,

Tanis

A Stunning Woman | Montreal Beauty Portrait Session https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2013/6/a-stunning-woman-montreal-beauty-portrait-session A nine-up image collage of a beautiful beauty session with a woman in a strapless dress rocking her natural light portrait beauty session Audrey! Do I even NEED to write anything? Well, yes I do... although, the images pretty much say it all... AUDREY! This lady was so excited for her Beauty Portrait Session that she packed nearly everything she could think of! I was so glad that I suggested that she bring an outfit (or three!) that she was dying to wear but had no where to wear it to... This hot little spotted number was one of them and boy, oh boy, did she rocked this frock!

Elina St' Onge, my talented MUA (make up artist), created a lovely, soft look for Audrey in the beginning and throughout the session, she added other dramatic accents (those red lips!) as we moved through outfits, backgrounds and poses. 

Look on at the stunning images we captured together during the last weekend in my natural light studio...

Back to those lips... doesn't she have the best smile?

I am so thrilled at the results that we were able to get from this one and a half hour session. Always the trooper, Audrey was way cooler than I when we had to literally battle bees that entered through the open window. The things we do for beauty!

A coy looking woman dressed in a cream coloured dress, set on a soft taupe background A very A gorgeous woman wearing a green sweater, smiling and looking coyly down I love to take my images to another, almost magical level. This image of Audrey below is stunning on its own... I love the story that her out-of-frame look evokes... I added my own textures and overlays to bring this lovely image to a new height... What story does this image tell for you? I would love a comment down below!

Fun Photo Studio Session | Montreal Portrait Photographer https://www.tanissaucier.com/blog/2013/6/fun-studio-portrait-session-montreal-band-photographer A stunning black and white image of the  duo from the band The Diamond RoadsDSC_5658-Edit It was especially nice to do this shoot with Ryan and Ian of Montreal Band, The Diamond Roads. When I began developing my photography skills (which you can read about here)  I started out using strobe studio lighting. I invested in a backdrop stand, backdrops, studio lights, barn doors, soft boxes, umbrellas and reflectors and I learned everything I could about lighting subjects. Well, the month of May was dedicated to re-learning lighting in a natural light setting. I tell you, the learning never stops! Bouncing light, diffusing light, catching the light at the right time... funny how the word 'natural' conveys a sense of ease... funny. So, when Ryan contacted me about a potential band shoot for her and Ian, she requested studio-lit shots. Just like riding a bike, I brought all my previous learning (and gear!) into practice... and it felt great! These are just a few of the looks we got... you will have to wait for the official release of the other images from the duo themselves!
