Sweetness! I was so privileged to be able to dash down to Lethbridge and meet Malakai. It's such a privilege to peer into those moments in the first few days of a new babies life. It's just magical. Welcome to the family Malakai, you're amazing.
Yesterdays snow day at home turned about a happy space in time to do these pictures I've been wanting/planing to do for months. I have realized that the light is so fleeting in the hours my children are home…… and Sunday's have been a needed day of rest…… so yesterday as I decided to keep them all home I immediately smiled, because I knew we would do this instead.
Admittedly it was much like many other times I have taken pics of my kids " I promise just ONE more" "We're almost done, just have fun with me". I did some without the lights too…. but the sparkling glow and those sweet smiles and giggles were too much to resist! I really have the best children. They are all so sweet in each their own way. They are making my holidays brighter this year, truly.
Ang, you are both dear to me and beautiful!! Thank you for letting me have fun and be creative with your cute pregnant self!! You are an amazing Mom. I'm so excited to meet this little guy your cooking up.
This sweet bit of perfection, with his pouty lips and bright big eyes…… he makes me miss my own sweet babes. The smell of a newborn brings back a flood of memories. All of this freshness, and our visit was far too short. Lindsay you are a beautiful mother…. thank you for letting me capture a peek into that.
Esther is my cousin. She's a very talented photographer herself in Saskatchewan, Esther Beazer Photography. My Aunt Janet and cousin Ashley did a fitness competition last year and this year it was Esther's turn. She had her second baby this last year and placed second in the competition. I'm impressed but he dedication and handwork that Esther has put into her health and fitness. She looks FANTASTIC!! and it was so fun to see her FEEL fantastic too! Her husband Russ has competed in the past as well. You can tell that they support one another and are so proud of the others accomplishments. This photo shoot was so fun! I loved the creative collaboration and time with loved ones. Congratulations on this mile marker Esther.
