Welcome Home Baby Danica!

Welcoming to the blog is Baby Danica!  

Proud parents, Glaister and Sherri are happy to finally have their precious & beautiful baby girl home after a long 9 day stay at McMaster Hospital.  

Danica was born 4 weeks early with "blood type incompatibility jaundice and breathing issues".  This made their visit with in NICU draining but when I asked mom how Danica was doing she said "She’s a little fighter and they were are gonna get through this"  Sherri noted that "having a baby in the NICU is emotionally draining, but it’s so nice to finally be home as a family of three"

What advice Sherri do you have for any parents that might go through this? "Be patient, have a good support system, and take it one day at a time".  That's all you can really do. :)

What is your favorite moment with Danica?  "My favourite moment with her is when I see her smiling up at me when she is laying on my chest.  She just loves snuggling with mommy this way."

When Dad and Mom were in studio I noticed how gentle Dad was with her. She was so tiny in his big hands. 

How is it watching your husband with her?  "When I see my husband with her my eyes fill with tears because he’s such a good Father. He is kind and attentive and she’s got Daddy wrapped around her finger already."

Well, Danica you are so beautiful and I know that there are great things in store for you.  You have amazing parents and are so loved.

Welcome home and can't wait to see your grow over the years to come.

:)

 

Jackson & Yoo Extended Family

Hello there all, 

Meet the Jackson Family!!!  I have know this couple for some time now.  They are amazing people who love and serve their family and church with passion.  They truly have such an extreme heart for people!!   

Matt&Anne contacted me to do their portraits and expressed that had family coming from New Zealand. Of course I said yes as I just love families. 

This house was full with hospitality, food, fun, laughter and most of all family.  What a way to celebrate and remember this visit.  

Hope you enjoy these photos Jackson and Yoo Family as much as I did taking them!!

Merry Christmas from the Gowers!!

Dad & Mom arrived in studio and I totally fell in love with their PJ's.  After all, what Canadian does not like Moose!  I am a huge fan of this attire. (my heart was happy)

Sweet Lily was so precious blue-eyed beauty played a little shy at first, but opened up with some Christmas tunes, Moana, and a story read by Dad and Mom.  

This is what Dad and Mom shared about Lily.  "Lily absolutely loves books and stories. She will bring you a book and sit in your lap. She'll even make you read it over and over again. She also loves puzzles and will sit for long periods of time and work at them. Hopefully she'll be a book warm and smart lol."

I have no doubts about this at all.  Lily appeared to be very much an observer and a reader.  So to me that is a win, win.  

Lily I know that you are gonna have an amazing Christmas, and I believe you are gonna receive my stories for Christmas!

Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas from the Beagley's

Oh how precious this Christmas will be with this Rainbow Baby!  This family is quite special and have been through quite alot over the last few years.  Dad arrived here from the US about 5 years ago and just recently they had Athrun. 

Athrun is known as a Rainbow baby which are babies that are born after any kind of infant or pregnancy loss.  Larissa and Zach lost two sadly before this precious one arrived.  So Athrun is extra special to these proud parents.  

Athrun is as cute as a button and Moms says " He is looking forward to receiving lots of bath toys for Christmas as he loves his baths alot"

Athrun I believe that you are going to receive those bath toys and Dad and Mom I believe you have received the best present ever!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from the Groen Family

The Groen family is wishing everyone a Merry Christmas with smiles from start to finish in this photoshoot  This bunch was so energetic and just all around precious.  Mom and Dad glowed as they saw the smiles coming forth.  There was so many great moments unfolding. 

Mom shared with me that, "Kaleb loves trains and anything with wheels but is hoping for more books and puzzles this Christmas. Mary loves watching her big brother and spending time in her Jolly Jumper. She's hoping for some dolls and a new walker so she'll be ready to chase her brother around the house."  I can only imagine the smiles and laughter that this is gonna bring.

"Nikos loves to play outside, pretend to cook, and read about the moon and Peppa Pig! For Christmas Nikos would love anything Peppa Pig!"  Nikos.... Something tells me that you are gonna receive what your asking for. .

"Aris enjoys staring at the ceiling fan and mommy and daddy as they make funny faces. Aris likely wants something to chomp on for Christmas!  Love this age, and some how I am thinking a teething ring is in store.
