Every mother has the right to brag about her children and I have decided to practice what I preach. Mother’s Day just passed and with all the craziness of family dinners, working and sports, I really wanted to take some time and capture my special moments with my 3 precious gifts. They are the very reason that I wake up every morning and live each day to the fullest. Here is a snap shot of what my Mother’s Day was like this year and it all ended with a big piece of the best chocolate cake.
Welcome Baby Kai! A few weeks ago I did a maternity session with Mark and Stacey who were expecting their first baby. I am so excited to say HERE HE IS and he is so handsome. We had a great newborn session that was full of many surprises to which you can ask Mark and Stacey about. We sure did a lot of laughing and had a few wardrobe changes, including me. Here are some takes from the day.
Congratulations Mark and Stacey on the birth of Kai William!
When I first started off last year, I wasn’t sure how busy I was going to be in my first year. My goal was to get my name out there, but how? I trusted my friends and family to spread the word for me and I had a great first year. I always like to find out from my customers how they found out about me. So far word-of-mouth has been successful for me but in this case, a random search for “children’s photographers” worked in my favour.
You just never know.
Amanda contacted me about booking a baby session for her 6 week old daughter Shyla. It was a great session with great moments captured. Even a few of her big sister made it into the collection. Here are some favourites for you to enjoy.
Along with my love of being a wife, mother, and photographer, I love being an Aunt. My sweet little niece Andi was turning 1 and her mom wanted to have some special pictures taken to celebrate this milestone. This photo session involved balloons which ended up blowing away and a cupcake smash. It was a fun afternoon and here are some of my favourites to share with you. Happy Birthday Baby Andi! Love Auntie Kristi
An exciting part of being a parent is sharing in the joy with others when they are about to enter the world of parenthood. As a photographer, I get to capture these special moments during this stage of preparation. I am so glad that expecting parents take the time to take these photos because when you are surrounded by baby toys, diapers and a crying baby, you forget about the beautiful miracle of those 9 important months.
Mark and Stacey were such a great couple to share one of these special moments with. Not only did we get some great shots, we shared so many great stories of how they first met and got to this point in their journey together. Now they are entering another chapter in their adventure together and here are few captured moments from this day. Congratulations Mark and Stacey!
