Oh how I adore everything about this session!

It was such a moody day at Conrad’s Beach for Jessica’s maternity shoot. The sky was threatening rain the entire time and because of that the lighting was soft and the clouds were dramatic. I was in heaven!

What really struck me though was their little boy Jaxson. Such a sweet and happy little guy and boy was he a chatter box for barely two years old! Despite his good behaviour and extensive vocabulary however, you know his mom and dad look at him and only see their little baby. I love how involved he was in this session because for the rest of his life he will have to share his mommy and daddy who, up until recently have been all his. It’s gotta be tough …… exciting of course but still.

I have been photographing maternity sessions with children for 7 years now so why am I getting all emotional with this one? Well I guess it is as good of a time as any to let the cat out of the bag! In just 6 short months from now my little baby boy Ellis is going to be a big brother too! We are over joyed for our family to be expanding but I can not help having a hard time getting used to the idea of my squishy baby boy becoming a big brother, a big boy! Life is so crazy and wonderful and passes by so fast, which is why I truly believe what I do for a living is important.

Jessica, Devan and Jaxon, it was a joy to meet your and your family for this session and I can not wait to see you all again and to meet your baby girl this Saturday for her newborn photos.
