Mini Mothers Day Sessions - Amanda

I've been so behind on keeping up with blog posts and my website! I guess that's what happens when you have two littles under two and your working hours are between 8PM-2AM! So I decided to spend my day adding these galleries to the blog on this rainy Tuesday. 

I met with Amanda to do a mothers day session with her boys and the session was so much fun! I love doing photoshoots with little boys. They always have so much energy and are always willing to strike a pose and go adventuring. Amanda's smile just radiates joy and I had so much fun working with her and her boys.

Here's some images from Amanda's gallery for you to enjoy.

Mini Mothers Day Sessions - Gina

This session with this beautiful family was so much fun. It was a perfect overcast day at the beach and this momma and her three kids were rockstars in front of the camera. 

Gina and I met at Willingdon Beach for a session for Mother's Day and it was so evident how much she loves all of her children. All three of the kids were so awesome and we all had so much fun together. 

Here's some of this session for you all to enjoy.

Mini Mothers Day Sessions - Nancy

I had so much fun doing these mini mothers day sessions. Each one has been so unique and so beautiful. I've captured laughs and love between moms and their children and I am so grateful to be able to send off these images for each family to cherish.

I did an in-home session for Nancy and her kids and it was gorgeous. So much fun was had eating watermelon and showing me where they were from! Listening to Nancy read to her kids and watching them both light up was so heartwarming.

Here's some from this session for you all to enjoy.

Mini Mothers Day Sessions - Candice + Wyatt

This mommy and me session was absolutely breath taking. The light was perfect, the session was perfect and the love between this momma and son was amazing. 

Candice and Wyatt the love and bond you two have is so evident in these images, and I am so thankful I was able to capture these moments between you both.

Candice, you are an incredible mother and you are raising an amazing little boy.

Andrea, Dan + the Twins - Motherhood Lifestyle Session

SOMETIMES MIRACLES COME IN PAIRS

On February 28, Andrea and Dan welcomed me into their home so I could capture some memories of them and their newborn twins, Jada and Oliver. I had met Andrea previously at our Postpartum group as our babes are about 2 weeks apart. Dan and Andrea are such an awesome couple and you can totally see that they're rocking the new parenthood thing. 

Jada and Oliver are absolutely the cutest little beings and I was so thrilled to be able to capture them in their newborn squishiness. It's amazing to be able to capture one baby during sessions, but to photograph two... so exciting! This session was great, I got to witness a teeny tiny glimpse of what it might be like to have twins between the numerous feedings, mom and dad doing their thing rocking the babes, some synchronized crying and there was so many laughs and smiles in the room. Even the dogs and the cat joined us for the session... so much love in one room! 

Postpartum can be hard, and as we sat on the couch chatting during their session it was so great to be able to connect with other parents going through similar situations (minus the fact I only have one baby--kudos to them). But honestly, it's hard being a new mom or dad. You're tired, there never seems to be enough hot coffee, between diaper changes, feedings, burpings and swaddling life can feel a little overwhelming. These two are 110% rocking at their parenting game. It's so evident in how they are able to communicate with one another and seamlessly nurture and raise these little babes together. 

I had such a great time coming into their home and I am so grateful they welcomed me in. Jaana was well taken care of and snuggled during this session by Dan's mother and I am so overwhelmingly grateful that I'm able to bring her with me to do the work I love. 

Enjoy double the love with these photos of Jada and Oliver and their mom and dad. Such a beautiful family of four with so much love and happiness.
