Everyone thought this little guy would arrive weeks before his due date but he hung in there until one day past. I met Beckie and Alex just over a month ago for their maternity session and today I met sweet Oskar as he made his debut in front of my camera. Oskar was born 11 days ago on September 8th and weighed 6 lbs 14 oz. He has the most gorgeous light blond hair and was such a good model for me. Thankfully he does like his soother, and also being swaddled. I was able to use a couple of new props which made me extra happy. Thank you for bringing Oskar to me and trusting me with his newborn memories. I have enjoyed getting to know you both. Here is just a sample from today!
With busy schedules and crazy, smokey weather for the past couple of months, meeting for this session was a challenge. I haven’t seen these kids since last summer and was so surprised how much they have grown. As busy as four littles is to photograph, I have to say that this was the easier of all the sessions I have done for this family. Nathan and Matthew are now two and are still polar opposites. I was happy to be able to finally get some smiles from them. Kevin is heading to grade 1 and Leah is already four. Thank you Johanna and Tom for letting me into your life once again to capture these memories.
Sweet Jorja spent part of the day in my studio for her newborn session. Born on August 24th she weighed in at 7 lbs 6 oz, and was welcomed by big brother August. August turned two a couple of weeks ago and wasn’t super excited to have his photo taken with his new baby. Two year olds are a special group of clients. I did manage to catch him briefly and he was even smiling for me. Jorja slept for the majority of our time together. She is so cuddly and sweet that I could have kept her. Thank you Barbara and Mike for trusting me with these precious memories of your new little girl. You have a beautiful family.
On August 14th, with much fan fare, Amalie Suzanne arrived at home delivered by her dad! Having a home birth was not the plan, but Amalie had a different idea! After a very short 15 min labour, there was no time to head to the hospital. Amalie weighed 8 lbs 1 oz and is much loved by her mom, dad and big sister Anneliese. Mom says she looks so much like Anneliese and looking back at her newborn session back in November I have to agree. Amalie is a sweet baby that slept for her whole session, making my job so easy. Thank you Gail and Martin for once again having me capture these sweet memories for you.
We didn’t let the gusty winds put a damper on our session this evening. The lighting was amazing an Monica absolutely glowing. To say getting these images was challenging would be an understatement. The winds were forecast 30-50km/hr and I am pretty sure they reached that. Monica and Chad were patient and I am thrilled with how they turned out. Monica is 28 weeks with TWIN girls! Due early November, she is expecting them to be October babies. I can’t wait to meet them and am already working on ideas for their newborn shoot. Thank you Monica and Chad for having me capture this exciting time in your lives. Here are a few images from our session tonight…..
