This is a first for me! 

I have photographed many first time parents and their newborn baby.  I have photographed many as they added a second baby to the mix.  I have even captured families with 3 children.  However this is the first time I can say that I have photographed all three of these kids as newborns!  Wow!  What an honour!

When Mom contacted me to tell me that they were expecting their third baby, and it was a girl, I was over the moon excited for them.  With 2 active boys already, what mom doesn’t secretly hope for a girl and all she brings to the family dynamic?  Pink, dresses, tea parties, dress up…the list goes on.  M&S were never *truly* convinced and even asked for verification every ultrasound they had!  But here she is, Miss A in all her girlness!

and throw in a litte England too!

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that custom newborn sessions take time.  There are feedings and cleanings and snuggles to be had.  And while I love all of those things, I also enjoy the time I spend with family.  I’m a talker.  I think as teenager I was often referred to as a gossip 🙂  But I think (and hope) that this shaped me into the people person I consider myself to be today.

I had the extreme pleasure of photographing J&C’s maternity session a few weeks earlier.  And even then, during a shorter session, their story intrigued me.   How did a Canadian Westerner come to meet a British boy living in Bermuda?  and how did they end up in Ottawa??  Well, their love story is exactly that.  Lovely and all theirs.  And now they have the most precious Miss C. to share it with as she gets older.

Thank you again J&C for a wonderful morning!  I enjoyed all those baby cuddles, chit chat and gossip!  All the best as you grow into your roles as parents.  Enjoy your rather large sneak peek – I had a hard time narrowing them down!  Miss. C. is a natural!

They grew up hours apart, but the distance proved not to be a stumbling block.   Their lives were bound to cross sooner or later and sure enough, fate intervened.  Who knew a trip back to their childhood camp would result in finding the love of their lives?

Now, with distance no longer an issue, S & D have welcomed a new love into their lives – the lovely and adorable Miss P.  She is everything you would want in a new baby – happy and healthy and just as cute as a button.  I have no doubt that she will grow up to be a great lover of the outdoors, just like Mom and Dad.
