    Welcome to the World Amelia!

    You may recognize my fancy British friend Sarah from other sessions I’ve blogged.  They welcomed a beautiful healthy baby girl Amelia to their family, and I’m so happy for them!

    Sarah brought out her wedding dress and head piece for a few photos, a treasured image celebrating the past and the present.

    If Amelia could talk, I’m sure she’d offer you a spot of tea. 😉

    Amelia has two very loving caretakers and friends for life. They argue over who gets to hold her first, and they are a great help to their parents.

    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!

    LitNB14-419 web

    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…

    LitNB14-035r web

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

    Little Diptych3 web

    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.

    Halle in Detail web

    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…

    Either way, she’ll be happy to cheer along with her family…

    LitNB14-405 web

    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.

    Oh my, he’s adorable! As the G. family walked into my house for his newborn session, I could feel the huge amount of love for this tiny little boy. A few week ago, we met for a maternity session (click HERE to see the post). The girls were excited to finally meet their baby brother and now that he’s here they are full of devotion (and kisses) for him.
