Urbanesque Workshop

June 28, 2008

This weekend I’m so excited to be attending Susan Robichaud’s Urbanesque Workshop (http://www.susanrobichaud.com/) here in Ottawa. While I’m not shooting until tomorrow, I got a sneak peak of what’s in store for me tomorrow as my kids were models for today’s attendees! They were fantastic and hung in for much longer than I expected! Bribery really does go a long way :).

Here is Ottawa’s Stephanie Cantin (http://www.stephaniecantin.ca/) shooting my daughter. I can’t wait to see everyone’s pictures!

First Haircut

June 2, 2008

Before:

After:

I will totally admit I have issues when it comes to my kids first haircuts. I just don’t want to do it! The hair on their head is the hair that they were born with and I can’t imagine cutting it off. It is like losing a part of their “baby-ness” However, my son was definitely due. His poor eyes always had hair in them and he would keep trying to push it aside, without much luck.
I kept promising my husband that we would take him as soon as Melonhead (http://www.melonhead.ca/) opened up in Ottawa. I was adamant about it. Our daughter had her first haircut at one of their Toronto locations and I wanted him to have the same experience. Fortunately (for my husband) Melonhead opened at Place d’Orleans this past Sunday.

If you’ve never been to Melonheads, go! They really know how to make that first haircut special and it is so fun for the kids! My son sat in Thomas the Tank Engine while be attended to and was distracted by toys, other kids and large tv’s playing kids shows. On top of that, they do up a beautiful “First Haircut” certificate with a lock of hair and a picture. So fun!



Baby K at 3 Months!

June 2, 2008

I’ve been very lucky (and honoured) to be following the B family since they were eagerly anticipating their baby bundle back in February. It is hard to believe that baby K is now 3 months! We had a wonderful session on Saturday, which almost made us forget about how hard we had to work at his newborn session!

Thank you D & C for inviting me into your home once again. I’m looking forward to shooting K again in 3 more months and to see just how much he has grown during that time!

Just a Belly Baby: 12 days new:
And now 3 months already!
