Baby Blake is the first of many newborns coming in the next little while and she has set the bar pretty high. Not only is she super adorable, but she was relaxed and cooperative throughout her whole session. The sweet pom pom hat is hers and fit very well with our colour palette too. Blake was born 10 days late on January 15th weighing 8lbs 3oz. Mom and dad say she is a pretty easy baby so far and even sleeps well at night. Thank you Erin and Graham for choosing me to capture such special memories for you. I look forward to seeing Blake again!
I am kicking off the new year with the anticipation of new life! Kara came to the studio today to for her maternity session. She is now at the 35 week mark, but Kara and her husband are waiting until baby arrives to find out the gender of their first born. Kara’s mom is a retired labour and delivery nurse that I had the pleasure of working many years with and learning lots from. Kara has followed in her mom’s footsteps and is also a nurse. Dad was unable to make it to our session today due to work so these will be a surprise for him too. Thank you Kara for having me capture these images for you. You are a radiant expecting mama and I am excited to meet your new baby in February. I already told you my guess! Enjoy your last few weeks of your pregnancy.
Sweet Tenley came for her debut session this morning. Born on December 15th, she weighed 7 lbs 9 oz. This experience has been quite different for mom as big brother August spent many months in the NICU. Tenley got to come home within a few days of her arrival. August joined us for a few minutes to get a sibling pose. In true three year old boy fashion he wasn’t to keen on staying still. Tenley loved her cuddles and struggled a little with a gassy tummy. She settled best when mom snuggled her. Grandma joined us today as she is here visiting from the island. Thank you Cindy for trusting me with your sweet baby memories.
Evan and his big sisters visited my studio just before christmas to document his one year milestone which finishes off his baby bundle sessions. Evan was less than thrilled with the prospect of photos today but after about an hour he decided maybe I was ok. We compromised and did a mom and me part of the session though which I am super happy with. Big sister Rowan even gave me smiles this time, and I can always count on Morgan to model. Evan will be one on December 30th and I have been privileged to be able to document all three of these sweet kids first years (and they travel from Vancouver too). Thank you Jen and Iain and Grandma for making this all possible. Have a Merry Christmas!
Born almost 3 weeks early, Hunter arrived and was welcomed by big sister Addison on November 13th. He weighed 6 lbs 9oz and has proven himself to be a great little eater. Today I got to meet Hunter, and see his big sister Addison, who I haven’t seen in person since her newborn session just over 2 yrs ago. I am told Addy isn’t much into pictures but I am super happy she let me take the cutest sibling image. I was even able to get a few of just her. There wasn’t much Hunter fussed about and I even was privileged to get a few smiles. Our very last set up included dad’s ball glove. As Hunter was awake by this time, I wrapped him up tight and snuggled him in the palm of the glove. He immediately fell asleep and gave us a big smile. What a great way to end our time together. Thank you Vicki for once again trusting me with your precious newborn memories.
