    Chandler’s Grad

    The last time I had the opportunity to photograph the beautiful H. family was back in 2009.

    I was invited out to their family farm to capture a pretty amazing life event for Chandler, her High school grad.

    She has grown into a confident, brilliant, kind, genuine young woman.

    The Story of Halle

    It was only three weeks ago, when I photographed the L. Family as they anxiously awaited the arrival of their baby girl. It was a trying pregnancy with preterm labour at 32 weeks, a successful stopping of contractions that led to bed rest, and a fast delivery 24 days early.

    Welcome to this beautiful world sweet and perfect-in-every-way Halle Bri!

    She is one loved Little girl. The L. Family are cherished friends to our family, we are very thankful we get to share so many of life’s poetic moments together. Halle was dreamed about for a couple of years before the happy news was finally brought to their hearts when they were least expecting it.

    I will never forget the text I received from Char sharing their amazing news with us. I think our faces tell the story of just how excited we were for their family…

    Char Story

    Halle must have known how lucky she is to be a part of this loving family, that she arrived ahead of schedule. Happily so…

    Shy is the best Little big sister ever, she adores Halle. What a beautiful duo, friends for life…

    There are few things in life more adorable than newborn details. From her tiny toes, rosebud lips, delicate fingers, to wisps of peach fuzz that covers her tiny body.

    I love photos that tell a story through the years. The top photo was taken in 2010 when Shy was just days old, the bottom photo was taken a few days ago: Shy (3 1/2 yrs), her little sister Halle (10 days), and their protector Duke…

    As we took a break so Halle could eat, I had this vision of the girls as adults looking back at these photos and seeing how very loved they were from day one.
