In my experience having a newborn baby is not easy. It is however so very blissful. With my job I get to arrive and capture these precious moments in other people's lives. The session is not quick, there are no expected images I need to get, its perfect exactly how it all plays out. I am so happy that Zoë told me ahead of time that she wanted this to happen. These images show you the amazement, the joy, the trials and the practical steps taken in the first few sweet moments of this little Hannah's life.
This was my first view as I walked through the door. Zoë was breastfeeding Hannah and was not going to move one inch while she was doing so. I so remember this feeling.
I happened to be there when the midwife arrived. It was beautiful to feel the relief it brought Zoë. Rebecca the midwife helped Zoë with breastfeeding *which is not easy at first, and answered any of their questions.
You may not consider these images to be "Picture Perfect" but they are my favourite kind of image to capture. Kids do not have to behave themselves, sit still and always smile for my camera. In fact, I prefer if they didn't.
Wedding Venues on Saltspring Island have come and gone. Some have really stood out and some have just been a great place to get everyone together. I am so excited to have Bullock lake open up their own farm land to a select few who want to experience an authentic + intimate experience. The food is prepared and served from the contianer on the land and the barn for dancing was just recently built. As you can see it offered the best vibe to enjoy the evening. They prepare the flowers + meals from their very garden. Over sized Wine bottles + Model A car not included.
Katia + Myles are getting married at the end of July and I am so glad I get to be there to capture their day! I had so much fun with them on Friday taking these photos. They are such an animated, fun couple. We even got to see the sun for a bit. Engagement session at the top of Juniper on Saltspring Island, BC.
