I had a colleague ask if I could mentor her on newborn sessions and so we put out a model call and got the PERFECT little newborn to come and see us for our session. What an adorable little girl she is and so pretty in pink! I had just ordered some new pink props and was so excited to use them! She was the sweetest little thing and did the BEST job as a model for us that day it was hard to show my mentoree what I do when facing a more challenging baby! Thank you so much for coming in guys!

It’s been a while since I have updated the blog because I have been so busy trying to keep up with our own little baby girl and getting sessions rolling out to people. I am going to be working on posting more recent sessions here to keep you all up to date and up first is this little cutie pie who was the last newborn to visit me in our old studio before our move. I must have been in moving mode because I even had to put the baby in a box haha! We are now in Port Moody and construction just finished on the home studio a couple of weeks ago. Sessions are back on and in full swing now!

It has been WAY too long since I wrote a blog post, but I have good excuses, I promise! I mostly keep people up to date with our newsletter and Facebook page, so if you’re on one of those you probably are aware of all the new excitement. Just in case you’re not here are just a few of the big and exciting things that have been going on with us!
First off, if you have been here before you may notice we have a new website! We are still working on adding more photos to our galleries and setting up a client cart system but it’s almost complete. We have also introduced NEW, extremely simplified pricing and will be setting up a product guide to help you find ideas for what you would like to do with the images from your sessions with us! We have several new products to offer so we will be sure to let you know once our product guide is live!
Last year I had a very long and difficult pregnancy. I was very sick for the first 20 weeks and off and on modified bed rest to help with that as well as some cramping issues. I was able to manage my sessions and editing and that was about it. A month before I was due there was some concerning issues with contractions and preterm labour that then (luckily) came to a halt. I ended up carrying 15 days OVERDUE and having to be induced! On February 5th, 2014 Miss Lennon Rose Wells joined our family. When her heart rate dropped and we nearly had an emergency C-Section it gave all of us quite a scare, but then miraculously when we got to the OR we were okay to deliver naturally AND I was already frozen for a C-Section so the best part was I felt nothing haha! It’s a good thing too because she was a big’un at 9lb 12 oz.! We were so VERY fortunate to have my good friend and colleague Jill (of Jillian Kirby Baby) there to capture some INCREDIBLE images of Lennon’s birth day!

CLICK HERE to watch her slideshow (nothing gory here I promise haha!)

We had our newborn session for Lennon with Jill too and we were just THRILLED with the way our images came out! Since Lennon was born, my days have been filled with nursing, cuddling, gazing and cooing at our little bundle of joy who since the moment she was born was nothing I expected and yet somehow…EVERYTHING I needed. In the midst of all that I have been back to work taking sessions on the weekend when Bryan can be home to watch the girls for me AND…WE ARE MOVING!!! We are moving to our absolute DREAM home in Port Moody June 15! We still have 2 sessions left for June if anyone wants them and after that we are booking mid-late July and those spots are filling up fast now!

I take monthly photos of Lennon on the 5th of each month so here I will leave you with her most recent one from May 5th. I can’t believe it’s almost time for her 4 month photo session already!

Our children (furbabies and human ones alike) are woodsy adventurers at heart.  They all love nothing more than a good, long hike in the trails of our area in Anmore and the surrounding Tri-Cities area.  We are so fortunate to live in such a beautiful city where we can enjoy such beautiful scenery all year long!

We had a great day the other day when we took them to a couple of nearby trails and meadows to capture some images of them all.  Our biggest girl, Roxie (the mostly white dog) is getting on in age so we wanted to make sure we didn’t let another day pass without capturing her in her element.

When we’re not home wandering the trails and having adventures in our imagination we like to have them in real life as often as we can.  I just heard of this concept which is really interesting at Dog Vacay where you can find a place for your pups to stay while you are away on vacation.  We have a whole menagerie so we have to have someone stay at our home, but if you just have a dog or two this may be the perfect option for you!  CLICK HERE to find options for the Tri Cities area!
