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!
