22 days seems like a lot of time. Until you add work, school, kids events, Christmas events, shopping, concerts… and then, Christmas is here in a flash.
I hope this stunning mama enjoys her daughter’s first Christmas.
It’s hard to believe, but December is here. And those of you with kids know that there is a balance here, between how fast December slips away, and how long it can seem to take to get to Christmas when you have little voices asking each and every minute of every day “When is it Christmas?”
To pass the time, I’ve created an album on my FaceBook page highlighting my amazing clients from the past year. From brand new babies, to weddings, to just some family love… these people have trusted me to capture their special moments and I feel so happy to have been able to be a part of their memories.
I will also post on my blog each day, counting down, but please feel free to “Like” kim culbert photography on FB and following along there too.
This sweet couple contacted me in the summer to book their maternity session for September. They knew that they wanted an outdoor session, and Deer Lake Park was the perfect choice with the variety of backdrops within easy walking distance. We had a great time strolling down the paths, and along the boardwalk, and I could tell that this couple were made for each other. They always had smiles on their faces.
She is just so stunning.
And then, at the start of November, exactly on her due date, little Mister N decided to show up. Full of a dark head of hair, 10 fingers, 10 toes and the perfect little mouth, baby N was a dream to photograph. He slept the entire time, and saved all his pee for after the session.
What a cutie. Enjoy your sneak peek!
I had the pleasure of photographing little Miss A last week for her newborn session when she was just 9 days old. I honestly think I might have the best job in the world, because not much compares to snuggling adorable little babies, like Miss A, capturing their smallness, their uniqueness and then getting to hand them back to their parents. I love the little yawns, the little smiles, and all the love that I can see in the parents eyes when they bring their baby to me.
Please enjoy your teasers…
I won’t lie… I love newborn sessions best when they are done in the first two weeks after birth. This is when babies tend to sleep the most, and are the squishiest, and usually have great skin. Miss A came to my studio a little after the ideal time, but honestly, I would have never known. She slept all the way through the session — even with my different bowls, buckets and stool props. She was a dream, and I love the images that we captured of her newness.
This stunning mama-to-be really wanted an outdoor session. Unfortunately our rainy Lower Mainland weather was not cooperating. After delaying a week to see if the weather was going to behave, we decided to do an indoor maternity session instead. It’s a good thing that we didn’t wait another week to see if the weather would turn for us, as S had the baby 4 days after our session! Talk about timing!
I think pregnancy suits her… such an awesome glow, and a gorgeous baby bump.
