I am an AUNT!!!!!
On February 13th, my brother Nicholas & his fiancé Ashley welcomed their baby girl, Alexis, into their (our family). She is absolutely PERFECT! Alexis came into this world after only six hours of labour. I am sure her mother doesn’t feel like it was only six hours… She weighed 7 lbs 6 oz and was 19 1/2 inches long.
Since they live in Kingston, I knew that coming to my Oshawa Studio would be quite challenging so I offered to pack up the studio and bring it to their home. What made it even more special is that my good friend Betty Lee, from Betty Lee Photography, offered to join me in Kingston as well. We had originally met during our workshop with the talented and beautiful Amy McDaniel from Dewdrops Photography. Along with both vehicles packed with blankets, outfits, headbands, beanbag, backdrop stands, lighting equipment – you name it… we had it! Together, Betty and I went full force, working on posing, angles, and styling our session using textures and colours to create a cohesive wall gallery that will look amazing on their wall!
Her father had NO idea what he was in for… she pooed three times on him throughout our session. It was hilarious. At some points, I found it more difficult to work along side my brother – giving him instructions, than his daughter! haha I remember saying to him, “Trust me, I know it doesn’t feel natural, but it will look great in your pictures”. He eventually surrendered and we got the family pictures we needed! It was even more special that Ashley’s parents and sister (and her hedgehog) were able to join us.
This was definitely a session I will always treasure and memories they will cherish for the rest of their lives.
I look forward to watching my niece grow up and capturing the moments…
