This Fall and Winter was CRAZY busy! I was super lucky to work with a little over 70 families; many familiar favourites, and some newbies who I hope become part of the familiar favourites crew! Thank you to everyone who supported this little business of mine in 2014. I am super excited about what I will have to offer for 2015I have updated to 2015 Styled Session schedule, these are the ONLY mini sessions I will be offering in 2015, so if you see a date that works for you, let’s get your name on the list asap!!
Sumer 2014 was BUSY! A ton of babies arrived, and everyone wanted photos at the beach. Thank goodness we had fantastic weather
This week, I had the opportunity to join one of my dear friends, Carly, as she welcomed her second baby boy via c-section delivery. The hospital that does c-sections where I live, is very strict about only allowing one support person in for the surgery, so this wasn’t something I ever thought I would have the opportunity to witness. Lucky for me, the daddy needed emergency surgery himself that same morning, and being the back-up person, I got the call (not so lucky for dad- who is now well). It was an odd feeling to be so excited that someone needed to have emergency surgery… I felt guilty for about 39 seconds.
This was Carly’s second c-section. She was a pro. She was calm, and collected, filled with excitement more than fear. She has forever reframed what a c-section means to me. In the past, it was presented as something to fear, but seeing Carly meet her baby… cue the alligator tears, there was zero fear. In fact, I might have been a little too into it. I found myself glued to her midsection as it was cut open layer by layer. The nurses warned me about feeling dizzy, or queazy, but I was downright fascinated. I was kneeling on my little stool so that I could get a better view over the blue curtain. My camera up to my face, I waited… I saw the water break, and then all of a sudden out popped a head! A photo frenzy began.
Taking this little man out to meet his family was so exciting. The look on his daddy’s face, just priceless. He’s already so loved. Thank you Carly and Nate, for having me be there, it was nothing short of amazing. xoxo
Happy Valentines Day everyone!! Sure it’s a holiday that has been distorted by the media, commercialism, and greed, but hey, what fun is life if you can’t celebrate things by eating goodies right? Everly, and her 2014 Valentine Kingston celebrated their Valentines Day in just that way; goodies, goodies, and more goodies! Oh, and of course funny faces and giggles!
The day of Valentines mini sessions that I hosted, also went really well!! It was so much fun picking up all of the custom Valentines these little ones sent out. I have received feedback already(!) that friends and family are dying of the mailbox delivered cuteness!
