This session was extremely special for me and I was honoured to be asked to photograph this beautiful family. As a parent, deciding on whether you will use daycare services and which one you use can be one of the hardest choices to make. When I had my daughter, I was going to be returning to school to get a teaching certificate so I applied to get a spot for her in a local daycare center. By the time a spot came available when my daughter was nearly a year old, I was enjoying my photography journey so much I decided to continue that path, but still put my daughter in daycare so I wouldn’t lose the space in case I needed it later. What a wonderful decision that has turned out to be for our family! The first person I met when I brought her there was this special mama right here. She was so warm and caring I just knew that my daughter would be treated with the same love and respect she is treated with at home. It was a relief to see my daughter thrive at this center and grow and develop at an amazing rate thanks to all the fantastic caregivers. My daughter created a special bond with this teacher in particular and when it was time for her to move from the infant center to the toddler one it was so sad for me because she was leaving behind this new amazing “family” we had gotten to know over her first few months there. This teacher had gone out of her way on several occasions to make us feel welcome and at home so when it was time to move on I gave her a gift certificate for a session with me, thinking she’d use it with her daughter. Time passed and we hadn’t arranged for a session date and before I knew it she was pregnant with number two! We decided it was time to do the session with this cutie pie and I can’t tell you how much love radiates from this family all the time. Thank you so much for all the care and peace of mind you have provided for our family over the years and for trusting me with your newborn photos! It was such a pleasure and I don’t think I can every repay you enough!
