This baby was the MOST chill baby and after spending some time with his super chill family, I could see where he got his skills from.  This family was so relaxed and refreshed looking when I arrived (especially for having a one week old!).  Even their guard dog was relaxed – he followed us around, photobombed on occasion but just generally stayed around me letting me know (calmly!) he was there to protect.  At the end of the session I double checked that I got all of the images I had wanted as it all seemed to go by with little effort! I’m excited for the extended family shoot we have planned with this family in the summer (although, I have a feeling they are also VERY capable of being pretty rambunctious…).

Thank you K and T for having me out – I’m so excited for our next shoot!

I’ve known Emily for a very long time. I’ve said it before, shooting special moments for people that I know is one of the best parts of this job.

When I think back to this shoot, the overwhelming feeling that I remember is kindness. This family is so attached  and in tune with one another  and they treat each other with such kindness.  Having a newborn is a lot of work and it requires you to do a lot. Every time Alice needed something, I could see that her parents were  happy to attend to her needs. When Emily needed something, I was so touched with just how kind and in sync Andrew was in helping her out. Few words were spoken during these times, things just got done. What an incredible environment for little Alice to grow up in.

Thank you, Emily and Andrew for having me out. I look forward to seeing Alice grow up :)Alice

I love this little family. I met them first at her sister’s wedding, then at her maternity shoot and now at baby S’s newborn session.  This family is full of love and energy and I was so happy to get to photograph the story of where they are right now.

While I appreciate a good family photo – my absolute favourite captures from sessions are the moments in between – breastfeeding , jumping on the bed while waiting to try another group shot, soothing the baby while we get photos of the older brothers,  games of peek-a-boo, impromptu dance parties and the general chaos of getting everyone to sit in one place. These are some the details that make this family who they are and I’m so happy to have had the chance to help preserve them.

D and N – thank you so much for having me over! I had a fantastic time with your family :) I’ll be in touch soon with the rest of your gallery!
