Holly Annagail Lynn is the sweet new baby of Scott and Bobbie. She arrived Jan 29th weighing 7lbs 3 oz. Today at 20 days old she came to see me for her debut photo session. Now to look at these images you would assume that she slept peacefully for her whole session. She did not. Holly is super sweet but really made me bring out my bag of tricks to get her to appear as though she was deeply sleeping. She did like being wrapped and even though she made me work, the little grins I captured made it all worth while. Holly is growing like crazy and is already on her way to 9 lbs. Her most favourite place was snuggled in mom’s arms near the end of our session. Mom brought along a cute little ruffle tutu dress that Holly did let us use. I have been tempted many times to purchase one and was happy to be able to use it today. Thank you Bobbie and Scott for trusting me with your sweet newborn memories. Here are just a few from today.
I don’t think I have ever had a wee client actually slept the whole session! Mia was a rockstar at her newborn session today. I have known Kristie and Jonny since their first newborn session and have been privileged to be asked to photograph all of their sweet babies. Mia definitely was the easiest by far. Kristie didn’t have the easiest pregnancy so really deserves this easy going baby. Being transferred to Kelowna at 34 weeks found her on two weeks of bedrest. Now, if you have been to the new perinatal unit at KGH you will know, it is pretty sweet! Beautiful, bright, big room and room service! It still is not quite the same as home but Kristie made the best of it, relaxing, cooking her baby, and learning to crochet! We even got to have a few chats on my work days. On January 27th at 36 weeks, little Mia made her debut, weighing in at 6lbs 8oz. Having two older siblings though that weighed around 9 lbs, mom and dad thought she was a wee little thing. I was actually working on her birthday so was able to meet her all fresh and new. Babies born early often get to stay a bit extra with us in the NICU. Mia won over all her nurses and after a 12 day stay she was welcomed home by big sister Zoë and big brother Everett. I am sure they were more excited to have their mama home though. All NICU babies are gifted a quilt which local quilters donate. Mia’s was so beautiful I had to incorporate it in her session. Thank you Kristie and Jonny for trusting me with all of your newborn memories! You have a beautiful little family!
This sweet boy came to see me today for his newborn session. Born on January 30th, Everett Robert Donald made his grand entrance 8 days before his due date, weighing in at 9lbs 4 oz! Mom hid him pretty good in her pregnancy. At her maternity session I would have never guessed that he would arrive over 9 lbs. The moment I picked him up I knew he would be an easy baby to photograph. He was all squishy and snuggly, and as long as he was fed he was very chill. Thank you Kara and Scott for spending the part of your day with me and letting me capture these memories for you.
I had a great session today with one of my little newborn clients. Koen is almost 7 1/2 months old and is such a smiley happy boy. He rolls but isn’t crawling yet . Koen is quite the stylish little guy. Mom brought along a onesie made for valentine’s day with a little bow tie and elbow patches. He wasn’t shy with me at all and it didn’t take much to get him laughing. My absolute favourite image is the one with mom. It was a last minute idea and I love it so much. Thanks Kristin and Kip for letting me play with Koen today. He is such a sweetie and I look forward to our family session this summer.
When I saw a photo of Clara posted by mom last week I knew I needed a visit with her in my studio. Today Clara came to see me and was a joy to photograph. She is a happy, chubby baby with the greatest baby rolls ever! Clara can get around pretty well rolling but is not yet crawling. Thanks Lynsey for the visit and letting me play with your sweet girl!
