In the beginning of the year, I hosted a lifestyle session giveaway and had the oppertunity to work with this lovely family as they were anticipating the arrival of their next greatest adventure!
Amy and her family welcomed me into their home and allowed me to capture them just as they were - a lovely afternoon spent playing and making memories as a family. There was even a small guest appearance of their adorable dog!
I always love chatting to my clients and getting to know them a little more, Amy recently lost her Mom and I opened up and shared about loosing my Dad. It’s tough when you are bringing in little ones into the world and your parent isn’t there to share their words of wisdom or make memories with their grand-babies. But having experienced so many moments where I know my Dad is with us, it helps make things a little easier, at least in that moment. Amy shared a moment of her Mom being with her, she had spoke with a pyschic who explained that her Mom knew she would have a baby girl. They weren’t finding out the gender and sure enough, they welcomed their baby girl this year. How amazing is that?! It gave me goosebumps when Amy told me and I was anxiously awaiting to hear the news of their baby and was SO happy for her when I saw her post a photo of their beautiful baby girl. Grandma definitely sent her! So very special!
This session is definitely a favourite of mine from this year, lifestyle sessions at home are always so warm and cozy, full of so many wonderful memories - your home is where you spend most of your time, what is more special then capturing your family just as they are, your kids just being kids and your house filled with love and laughter.
Thank you to this beautiful family for allowing me to capture them and I hope to capture more memories for you all in the future!
