So familiar... | Calgary newborn photographer

I’ve spent a bit of time this week going through old movies and photos of when my boys were young… photos and videos I haven’t looked at in years. One of my favourite families just had a second child. I photographed their first son as a newborn, at 6 months and again at one year and just last week I had the honour of meeting their new little guy and photographing him. The two boys are 20 months apart just like my boys. Their oldest was born in July, just like our oldest and their youngest in March, just like ours. It was pretty neat watching the boys together and how they are as a family of four now. It was all so familiar. I remember how, after just a day in the hospital, I came home and suddenly my oldest (who had been my baby up until then) seemed so big. He felt big when I picked him up, he looked older… he suited that big brother role even though he didn’t quite understand it and how that new baby just fit into an existing family as though he was always there.

Another final session with one of my Baby love families. I love watching these kids grow up – from either just a bump or a newborn to a full on crawling, sometimes even walking one year old. It’s such a treat. You get to know the parents, the sibling(s) and watch them evolve as a family.

These two kiddos are just adorable and make me smile just thinking about them.

Sisters... | Calgary child photographer

because although this shoot was really to mark little Gwen turning one… those sister shots kill me!

And in my last post when I said it was my last shoot of the year and the last of the Christmas lights, well, I was wrong. For some reason I was thinking once Christmas was over, we had moved right on to 2017 but that wasn’t the case… I had one session after that. THIS shoot, with an awesome family I’ve been photographing since their youngest was born, was my final shoot of 2016 and what a great way to end it!
