I was so excited when this mom to be contacted me about a maternity session for baby number 3.  You see, I have photographed her sister’s family on a few occassions in the past.  I love the connection and relationships between families, so this session opened the door and not only allowed me to meet another branch on the family tree, but also see how similar and connected that tree really is.  Mom and her sister are clearly siblings!  I’m interested to know if the family resemblence will continue with the newest little twig in a few weeks!  Only time will tell!

After meeting new mom to be, J, there is no doubt in my mind she is going to have a  newborn fashionista on her hands in just a few short days!

When I arrived at J & S house, J had already picked out a few outfits she wanted to incorporate into our maternity session – complete with accessories!  And can I tell you how much I loved all her choices?!  A vibrant red shirt with a long necklace, a simple form fitting white shirt with a frilly pink (because it’s a girl!) scarf, and shoes to match!  All perfect choices that complemented her and her home.

Thank you J&S for a fun afternoon.  I’m on pins and needles waiting to hear your news!  Enjoy your sneak peek\

Aren’t they cute?

Just before the holidays I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing this little bundle of joy!

It was the morning of the first real snowfall we had in Ottawa, but despite the cold outside, Mr. T and his family were warm and sweet.   He really was a great little subject to photograph.  Aside from a little food break here and there – and really who doesn’t need a little food once in awhile? – baby T was just a laid back little guy who posed like he has done it his whole life!

Thank you A&K for inviting me into your home and making me feel so welcomed.  It was an honour to capture your new son and your growing family!

We’re 4 days into the new year, 2012, and so far so good!

As always at this time of year, I like to take a moment to look back and reflect on the past year.  2011 was good to me both, professionally and personally.  My business grew. I met some incredible families and helped many of them welcome new babies into their lives.  I captured moments between new couples, and couples that have been together for years.  I chased their toddlers, many who I had met as newborns.  And I enjoyed every moment.

Personally, we also welcomed our fourth baby (3rd girl) into our family – on my birthday!  And now, as she is coming up to her 1st birthday, it really makes me wonder where the time goes!  I’ve learned to be more patient, more organized and really not to sweat the small stuff.  It all gets done in the end, so why not enjoy your kids while they are this little?

So while I thought about that, I decided not to just look back on all the sessions – maternity, children, family, newborns – I had shot this year, but to look at all the new babies that started their lives in 2011.  They transformed couples into families, and some families into much bigger families (like mine!).  They made people happy, mulitiplied the love and showed us what a true miracle is.  Lets hope for much more of that in 2012!

Thank you to all my lovely clients for making it such a great year.  Hope to see you soon.  Happy New Year!
