COQUITLAM NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER-My new baby cousin!

I’m a bit behind on blogging this session, but my cousin came in for her newborns photos a few weeks ago and I had such a great time photographing my very own baby cousin! She has 3 older siblings who didn’t come in because they weren’t feeling so well that day, but man this little girly is going to grow up in a busy, loving and happy home. I cannot tell you what a wonderful mother my cousin is. Her patience and maternal instincts are just incredible and every time I see her with her babies and her growing family I stand in awe of all the things she can get done in a given day. This year when my husband came down with pneumonia and I was feeling overwhelmed with everything I had run out to grab him some medications and came home to dinner on my doorstep along with homemade cookies from her. I remember crying because I was so relieved and thankful to have such a thoughtful cousin who would come all this way with 3 kids, while pregnant to help ME with something! That night my husband and I were both thankful to have a GOOD and healthy meal to eat without having to do anything! I was so happy to be able to take some photos when this little sweetie decided to make her appearance. I know my cousin felt she wasn’t “photo ready” that day and she just sees all the “imperfections” in the photo I took of her and her daughter, but I feel this is something we all need to see as I’m sure none of you will see any of these things, but one day her daughter will be glad to have a photo of just her and her mommy I am sure. I know I am guilty of not getting into enough photos with my own daughter, but once I saw an amazing photographer, David Williams speak and he spoke of the importance of being in photos for your children. So many families are missing true family photos which are so important and mostly a lot of moms are rarely in photos because they are so often taking the photos. Seriously folks. Whether you get photos professionally done with your children or just get your husband/friend/mom/child/neighbour etc. to snap an iPhone photo, please get into photos with them often, whether you feel you look your best or not. You always look perfect to your children and those photos will be one of the greatest gifts they ever receive later on in life. Thank you to my beautiful cousin for letting me take a quick shot of the two of you and I hope you grow to love it as much as I do and your little lady will! xo
