Took a break from my own crazy family life to photograph the sweetest beginning to another family's crazy life-to-be. The Lower Mainland is a small area, smaller than we think. Chelsea found me through a co-worker who just happens to be a very good friend of mine that I have photographed many times and whose sister I photographed last Fall with the arrival of their first baby, Bowen. It turns out Chelsea already knew me as we went to high school together! Of course, she remembers me as the Asian girl who made out with her boyfriend (and now husband) at the bus top ALL THE TIME, but now we have 3 kids so it's all good. Ha!
Sometimes I get caught up in the studio set up trend of modern day Anne Geddes photos. It's hard not to with the beautiful even lighting and the many props on hand, but I need to constantly remind myself that it isn't how I enjoy creating memories. I love capturing babies and families in their home, in the natural light that is part of their everyday environment, especially during these precious early days. I loved this session, and not just because it had great light in numerous rooms. It was great energy and I was over the moon to be holding a teensy tiny newborn all over again...
Welcome to the world, Pierce!
Thank you Chelsea and Aaron for a wonderful afternoon!
Can't wait to share the rest of these photos with you!
