We absolutely adore doing different things, capturing photos in a fun way, enticing children to give us real smiles by being goofy… whatever it takes! When we received the phone call from Maybel’s mom, saying that they were looking for someone who was willing to do a newborn session outdoors, we jumped at the idea. We knew it would take some planning to be sure that baby was protected from the hot sun, but were really excited to get into the sun and capture things a little differently!
It was no surprise, given her mom and dad’s love of the outdoors, that Maybel was so calm and peaceful when we brought her outside, as though she knows this is where she will spend much of her life (if her Dad has anything to say about it)
enjoy the outdoors!!
Over the years, we have met families at random events or activities in the community that go on to become regular clients, who we get to see grow and expand their families! Welcome to the lives of one of those families ❤ They first met us last year at a public event where we were offering Easter photos… and their little guy did not want to sit still for his photo to be taken, but we made an impression on them with the patience we displayed as we captured some adorable shots of him!
flashback to little Logan:
fast forward a year, and we get the exciting email that they were about to welcome another little one into their lives, and wanted us along to capture the moments! A maternity session, fresh 48 and a newborn session, we were thrilled to watch this precious family of 3 grow into a family of 4!
Starting with a maternity session at Doon Mills Ruins in Kitchener, we had a fun evening capturing Mama’s bump before the baby arrived. The excitement and anticipation for this family, after everything they had gone through to have a baby, was absolutely palpable in the air!
The Fresh 48 session is great for families who want the excitement of a birth, without actually having me present for the birth itself. I come to capture the excitement of new family members meeting the little one in the environment in which they were born. My Lucas came right on his due date, which made for fantastic planning and timing! When I arrived, Logan was SO EXCITED to show me who had arrived in their family, and was very excited to have a new brother to share his love of hockey with. Watching older siblings interact with the new baby is hands down one of the most heart warming experiences for me (yes, even when it isn’t a happy response), the amount of emotion in these tiny little bodies is wondering to watch and experience.
9 days later, the family joined me in studio for a formal newborn session as well as family photos, updated with their new little man and a certain big boy who is turning 3!!!
It has been almost 2 years since this adorable couple tied the knot, and had us capture their amazing wedding day!
We were very excited to hear the news that they were expecting their first baby, and were booked and ready for newborn photos… but sometimes, as we all know, things don’t always go exactly as planned, and life gets very crazy after a baby joins our lives. It was 5 months later that we heard from them again, asking us to capture some family photos now that Mathis was bigger and life had settled down a bit… we were ecstatic.
This little man is adorable, there’s no two ways about it! Those eyes… I think I mentioned how envious I was about his eyelashes about 5000 times during our session!
Congratulations on your growing family Crystal and Val, and thank you for having us along to capture the ride! ❤
