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!!!
Baby S & Baby C are as cute as they come. Newborn photography is sometimes challenging however twins defiantly makes you step up your game:) These two were the typical twin pair with the opposite sleepy times but in the end we got them in sync and it was perfection. I loved connecting with this new multiple family and hear their stories, finding out, pregnancy and labour. All brought back very clear not to long ago memories that I was able to relate. I think these two are just beyond precious and am happy to share these images with you:)
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 have been extremely busy lately but I really can not complain when its little guys like these keeping me tied up. All these snuggles I really love my job. This little guy was a little older than I am used to coming into the studio however he was a complete dream, and dream he did. Once a sleep he didn’t stir the rest of the session making me one happy person. xoxo
What are the chances I would get to take maternity pictures of a beautiful momma-to-be with her due date the same as mine:) She was glowing and absolutely beautiful I loved being able to compare note the whole session on the similarities and different experiences we both are having. It was kinda neat. I cant wait to meet this little one and who knows maybe we will have same birthdays as well.
I am so excited to meet this families new little guy. Although I think I will have to wait a little bit longer than expected (sorry sam) This beautiful mommy of soon to be 4 has been over due with all three of her kiddos. I think she added it up to about 17 days all together…..lets hope that this guy breaks the trend! We met out at cultas lake and got some of my favorite family shots to date. It is really something great when you get to meet your clients again and again and the children just warm up to you, mind you it was not their first rodeo:)
After cultas we decided to reward the munchkins and mom and dad with some ice cream. Thought it would be kinda cute to do some photos there too so everyone got blue and green ice cream to stick with the boy theme of course!
I LOVE this part of my job. I was expecting this session a bit earlier but this little princess was on her own schedule! 10 days over due! Not unlike her timing on making her debut true to form she was on her own time line for this shoot too. There was nothing mom could do to get her sleeping until she wanted to. But I wasnt complaining we got some beautiful open-eyed pictures too.
When Kayla and Josh contacted me to do their maternity shots I was super excited! I did their wedding early last year and thought it would be a great idea to try out some new ideas with them as they are used to my craziness by now! I had been at playland the day before and that’s when the idea of the cotton candy came to me as it was staring right at me pink and blue! perfect for a couple who were playing the waiting game to find out if they were proud new parents of a baby girl or little boy! Well the waiting game is over and contrary to most predictions these to have a beautiful baby girl.
I first met this beautiful mom to be almost 10years ago we worked together before she moved out to Vancouver we still kept in touch and was honoured when I got the email asking if I would be her wedding photographer. Of course I was thrilled who wouldn’t like to photograph a beautiful not to mention kindest bride out there. her wedding was pre blogging days but I dug up some archives to share. (why not) I love sharing pre blogging photos;)
On to the true purpose of this entry today was this amazing couple is expecting their first baby soon! We met up in Abbotsford and had a great afternoon. These to are so much fun and casual and were up for any crazy ideas I had. Anything for a great location right? There were so many great picture but here are just a few to share.
