It’s this little miss’ FIRST BIRTHDAY next month, so I figured it’s about time I blog this gorgeous session. Totally adored by her big brother, this little girlie is an amazing addition to such an already beautiful family. Miss. A is suuuuper bubbly & happy, she has an infectious smile and [appears to be] very easy-going. You can definitely tell M&D are totally smitten… here are a few of my favs!

Enjoy,

Newborn: Finnie Family

Finnie-8

Back in May I had the pleasure of meeting this beautiful new family of three. Britt & Brett made being new parents look so easy – they were complete naturals. & Elwood is as handsome as ever, just look at him.

For this post I decided to turn their beautiful gallery into a video – a keepsake for them to watch back and cherish. Especially when this little man grows up way too fast. I would recommend watching it in HD.

Mr. T-2

I had the wonderful opportunity to meet these new parents last August and capture some beautiful moments as a family of three. Considering Mr. T is almost 9 months now and has like 4 teeth, I’m pretty sure I can’t actually call them new parents anymore. Plus you could also say that I am way behind on my blogging………………

Anyways! I have been receiving a lot of interest in lifestyle newborn shoots and would like to provide a little insight into my unique process.

So I am FINALLY getting around to blogging about my latest session with this beautiful family. Last spring I had the amazing opportunity to capture their maternity photos and late August beautiful Harlee arrived. These two are so in love with: one another; their new babe, and their old babe, Otis the maltese. It’s always a treat to have them in front of my lens. I can’t wait to share my favourite snaps with you!

And Jessica Makes 4…

Jessica-2

So it appears I’ve taken a 9 month hiatus from blogging. In fact, my last blog entry was July 31st, 2016… five days after we found out I was pregnant. From that point on, looking at a computer screen made me woozy, I was barfing six to ten times a day requiring IV Gravol and fluids, plus I was in charge of chasing around our busy toddler.

I thought the second time around would be easier: I had a better idea of what to expect (including all those pesky, scary pregnancy symptoms no one seems to ever talk about); I had already been stretched to the limits; and I knew what being induced, labor and a cesarean section were all like. I thought I was a seasoned vet at baby making.

I was wrong. So very, very wrong.

Looking back, I took my pregnancy with Brynlee for granted. This time the morning sickness was worse, I experienced significant round ligament pain, had terrible diastasis recti (also known as abdominal separation), and my left SI joint kept popping out of place warranting numerous trips to the chiropractor. If that wasn’t enough, Brynlee was beginning to assert her independence and autonomy. Blossoming into a beautiful little girl, she was no longer my precious little baby.

With all that being said, I am extremely excited to get back into the swing of things (considering it sounds like all I did was complain for 9 months ^^). Looking back on a few of my posts, I am so thankful that I took the time to put memories down on “paper”. A baby’s first year goes by so fast and is filled with so many milestones and achievements. I’m excited to keep you all updated on our new beautiful family of four!
