Sweet little Mila came for her debut photo session this morning. Born on August 1st, she weighed 7 lbs even, and at 9 days old today was a dream baby. Mom says she is a bit of a night owl but that works for me. Mila didn’t cry for any of her session, only made little noises being all bundled up. We were done in just two hours and that included two snacks! She made my job so enjoyable. I would photograph her again any day. Thank you so much Silje and Ryan for having me capture these sweet memories for you. Here are just a few from today….enjoy!
I had the pleasure of photographing this little family today. Tamara and Donny are here from Alberta visiting family (that I just happen to be great friends with), and as I have photographed Donny’s siblings and there families, it was time to capture this part of the family. It wasn’t long ago that my three girls were this little and it was funny to see how birth order really does explain the personalities of the littles. These girls were so much like mine. Zaylee is 6 and you can tell her age by looking at her smile. Nyla is 4, and very comfortable in front of the camera. Zosha is your typical third born two year old. Tamara and Donny are also foster parents to a sweet almost 4 month old little boy. “Xman” as he is often called loves to be snuggled. Due to confidentiality, posting images of him are limited (I did take some) but I love the one of him being loved. What a lucky little guy to be welcomed into such a loving family. Thank you Nana Cheri for supporting our youth Mexico Mission trip this past spring by bidding on this session in our silent auction. Tamara and Donny, your family is beautiful and I enjoyed getting to spend time with your sweet girls.
Kingston Ellis was born on Canada day weighing in at just 5 lbs 9 oz. He is a champion eater and already has surpassed his birthweight, plus more. Kingston is one chill little man which made our session together go very smoothly. I was surprised to have all his images, and images with mom and dad complete in just the 2hr mark. I love his head of dark hair and that he was so easy to pose just the way I like. He barely made a fuss until he was hungry. Once he had his snack he was off in a slumber again. Thank you Natasha and Mike for letting snuggle with Kingston. I enjoyed our session together.
On June 7th at just over 33 weeks I photographed Samantha to document her growing baby belly. Little did anyone know but Emmy would make her appearance just a week later at 34 weeks. Emmy Faye was born on June 16th and weighed in at 4 lbs 14 oz. Being early meant a plane ride for mom as there was no room at the higher level centers in the valley. Emmy was born in Vancouver but did so well was back in Kelowna in just a few days. She was a smart little thing and figured out how to eat pretty quickly so was home after just a couple of weeks. Today Emmy came to see me. She is growing so much and is already 6 lbs 2 oz! I was so excited to photograph a girl after my run of 9 boys! Sam and Dylan are hunters so it was only fitting that they brought along some antlers to use in our session. I love how that image materialized! Thank you Samantha and Dylan for having me capture such sweet memories for you. I look forward to watching Emmy grow!
