I was so excited to hear from this couple after Christmas when they called to book a maternity session that they had been gifted. I may be biased but I don’t think there’s a better gift than giving memories. Not only do families get to experience a professional photography session and receive treasured keepsakes of their growing family, but they can share those memories with their extended family members and friends.  Photography is essentially the gift that keeps giving and giving!

I was slightly envious of their tans thanks to a recent baby moon trip down south. Given that their lives are about to change in such a significant way, it was a wonderful chance for the two of them to connect and escape from our frigid weather.

Dad recently bought a new camera and accessories so we chatted about gear and their plans for their little one. I can’t wait to see them again in hopefully just a few short weeks when their baby girl makes her appearance. I know I say this all the time, but one of my very favourite things is getting to take a family’s first photo when they have grown and welcomed a new family member; it’s such an amazing life event and something I know they will always treasure. I am grateful for the opportunity to share in those precious moments.
