Don't Miss a Moment ~ The importance of Telling Your Family's Story

I bet I am not alone here...I say it all of the time and I hear others say it as well....my babies are growing up way too quickly.  They are changing everyday and they have these little quirky things about them that I know are not going to last very long.  

I don't want to wake up one morning and wonder what happened to all of those little moments.  You know the one....like playing with play-doh in the living room and getting it stuck to the couch or going outside to get into the van before an appointment and the baby lays down in the middle of the biggest puddle in the drive way (this actually happens way too often...you think I would have caught on by now) or the trail of clothing left on the kitchen floor because the child who is about to start school likes to strip down to her undies as soon as she gets home!

These are the things that I keep talking about.  This is what makes documentary family photography so special, so important and  so necessary.  It's your story!  No one else has a story like yours...you're moments are special.  Let's document them!

I wrote a little bit more about this as a guest post on Hello Dear Photographer.  Go on over there and have a little peek!  Don't miss a moment ;)

Moncton Newborn Baby + Lifestyle Family Photography Session ~ The Hemsworths

This session is a bit of a hybrid; it's a newborn + lifestyle family session!  I got together with this beautiful family to document the moments that make this time in their lives special.  With a brand new baby boy and a 2 year old little girl (and I haven't forgotten Ebony the Black Lab!) these guys have a lot going on in their day to day lives and I wanted to create images that were reflective of this time for them.

To document their current lifestyle with their new baby, we spent most of our time quietly hanging out in the  playroom and living room.  Big sister wanted to show me a few things in the playroom, so we started in there and let her lead the rest of the session.  Baby G hardly made a sound the entire time so he was pretty cool with the whole process!

I must say though, that big sister totally stole my heart!  I cannot believe that she is only 2!  She is quite the character.  I thoroughly enjoyed my time with her and her family.

Baby Beckett is here!  He kept everyone waiting for quite a while.  His Nanny and Uncle flew home from Alberta to be here for his birth but he was just too shy and wanted to stay tucked inside!  So, flights were changed and the family waited! He finally did decide to come out and meet his family before they had to go back out west.
