A few weeks ago, I met this gorgeous couple for their maternity shoot and it was such a pleasure having them in front of my lens. Not only are they beautiful people inside and out, but I genuinely enjoyed the fact that it was just the two of them! Don’t get me wrong, I obviously LOVE photographing families and children – especially my own. However, the task certainly comes with a few obstacles. This session was like a breath of fresh air that I didn’t know I needed. I was just able to revel in the space created to celebrate these two before they become parents and welcome a beautiful baby into their family.
I am so humbled to have been asked to capture this special time in their lives!
Today is this pup’s fifth birthday
We give him to much flak for slobbering all over our house, farting, scaring himself & running away, and his excessive snoring. But we couldn’t have asked for a better pup for our family. The girls absolutely adore him and well… he tolerates the bear hugs, ear pulls & the occasional finger in the nose.
Happy Birthday to our first babe
[as per May thirtieth]
Green eyes, stick straight poofy asian hair, fair skin like her Daddy
Loves to dance, clap & sing just like her sister
Looks mostly like her mama
Pulls out anything you put in her hair
Obsessed with remotes
Gives hugs and kisses whenever you pick her up. & then grabs hold of the skin on the back of your arm to hang on
Has two go-to positions in her car seat: nosey neighbour or asleep
Still a soother babe which is weird for us because Brynlee ditched hers at 6 months. Hasn’t really transitioned to a ‘lovey’ but loves to snuggle & squish anything soft and cuddly
Bedtime: 6:30pm. When she’s ready for bed she starts pulling her hair and swanton dives for her crib
Crawls at lightening speed, pulls herself up on everything but refuses to stand or attempt to walk on her own
Master of the stairs. Up & down
Can motor around the park unassisted. However slightly fearless and partly oblivious. Goes down the slide head first on her tummy
Bear crawls on the grass
Has 4 molars
Big into people watchin’
Favourite cupboard is inside the tupperwear cupboard
Loves to unpack bags and pull out A L L of the wipes
Totally food motivated. Crazy for cookies
Pretty easy going…… until she’s not. Or you try and wipe the cookie crumbs off her face
Our littlest babe
A couple of months ago, Amanda & Pat welcomed their beautiful daughter into this world. I was so grateful to be invited into their home, meet their adorable new squish and to capture some precious moments for them. Both being animal lovers their only request was to get some photos with their three pups. I was super impressed by how well-behaved and gentle the pups were with Quinn! She sure is one lucky girl. Here are a few of my favs..
This session was a natural light photographer’s DREAM.
The location, the lighting and the happiness & love that filled the home… It was all perfect. And not only did it include a childhood friend but her wonderful husband and their two adorable little girls who reminded me so much of my own. In fact, when I got Craig to lay a “fresh set of eyes” on my edits, he had to do a double take because Amelie looked so much like Brynlee.
Take a peek.
