Becoming Five | Edmonton Maternity Photographer

9 October 2017 | Maternity

There is absolutely nothing like the anticipation of a new baby joining the family. We weren’t sure if this photo shoot was going to happen, for so many reasons. This lovely family lives in Edson now, and they weren’t sure they would make it to Edmonton before the baby was born. Laurie and I chatted and tried to plan, but we just weren’t sure if it was going to happen. Everett gave Laurie the nudge she needed to book the photos, reminding her she would regret it if they didn’t have them done. So they packed up the van and they headed to Edmonton. We needed to document them becoming five, and I am so happy this worked out.

This session was short and sweet. The combination of two young boys, the time close to bedtime, and a mama who needed rest, we hustled and made sure we captured everything we needed to in a very short amount of time.

I am so, so happy that we took the time to document Annie while she was still inside her mom. This was a dream session, the summer evening was warm, and everyone was happy to concentrate on this baby about to arrive.

Thank you so so much for making the effort to come and have these photos done. I am so happy to be the one document these moments for you, for these final days as you were preparing to become five.
