I don’t know how I got it in my head but somewhere along her pregnancy I decided a girl. Julia was expecting a girl. I was so sure that I had thought she had told me, as if she knew. But in our conversations she had assured me this never happened she did not in fact know what gender baby #2 was. I am never one to get a feeling of what peoples babies will be, never as a matter of fact if I do guess, you most likely will be having the opposite because I am always wrong. And at last here it is folks a big beautiful baby boy! By Big and beautiful I mean it. Baby Spencer was a whole 10lbs. So squishy and rolly polly I love it! I have four beautiful babies but have never a rolley baby goodness it is seriously to cute I can’t handle it!!!
I have had the pleasure of taking all of these beautiful children’s maternity photos and I so so in love with these pictures. I was so honoured to get to meet baby Grey even before he was baby grey. He was just perfect in every way. And I truly mean it. With a striking resemblance to his siblings he is a beautiful baby and I can wait for more snuggles!
Last month we celebrated our babies. They turned one! Our baby girls turned one. I catch myself saying this statement still, a month later. I think maybe it’s because we survived it, and I am proud we made it through a rough, busy crazy year. Maybe because it’s the last of our babies no longer babies and I mourn that. We now have toddlers! ( a lot of them ) Maybe because just like that what feels like a blink of an eye, the last year has passed. For what ever reason I do not think I will ever forget our village that has come forward and have supported our family adjust and build the stones to support us and help us when days were rough and long. Who helped celebrate our small victories and the big ones. Four kids 3yrs old and under was hard. So to the friends who stayed friends with me even though I drive a mini Van Cheers!:) xoxoxo
A little bit of our year:)
I met Alissa and Tim as their wedding photographer and was so happy to be able to reconnect with this Abbotsford family. Knowing their bambino was a few months old I was happy to have them in the studio for some family photos just in time for the holidays. If any family deserves it, it is this one. More on that here. I was happy to meet their little guy he is such a cutie. I love this whole session of photos but here are a few of my favorites.
Well I think this might have been the coldest day to date but with rescheduling due to the crazy rain days prior we decided to go ahead and I am so glad we did. I loved the dynamic of these two such a great older sister and her cute little brother loved photographing them. They sure pulled through despite the chilling temperatures.
I seriously love this family! I have had the pleasure of being able to photograph this family time and time again and as always it is such a pleasure. I have seen this family grow and been able to capture many memories. Mom always has everyone coordinated so well, with all their personalities they are a photographers dream:) HUGE thank-you for choosing me take your pictures xoxoxo
