Trumpet sounds…doo do do doooooo lol…Fresh new kid on the block for this gorgeous sweet family!

Hey guys! Happy Thursday ;).

Okay…taking a moment to appreciate the little details in life like wrinkly baby fingers. Meet Harper! This sweet baby girl made her intro earth-side a few weeks ago and she brought in her big brother, and gorgeous mom and dad for her newborn session. I was so excited to do this shoot for my repeat client as the last time I saw her we did a Simply Motherhood event with her then 8 month old son.


We had a fun, busy time during our session. Throughout our session I always keep things moving forward. Especially when we have toddlers involved. I know as a parent that you have a small window to work with when it comes to attention and patience. I must comment and and say that these 2 parents handled things like pros. Balancing a newborn and a toddler is not easy. Trust me I have been there…( mine are 11 months apart HA!…more on what life was like then another time)

That said, you shift focus. Yes ultimately your goal is to capture this beautiful new babe (and we did) however you need to realize and remember that as a toddler this new dynamic and routine is something they have yet to embrace. You are bound to have a slew of emotions and roller coaster days.


Making “new” older brothers or sisters feel like they are part of this experience is key and so important too. We captured Mason (big brother) for a few minutes and he didn’t even realize that the monkey in my camera was really his own reflection ;)

Our family newborn sessions are always natural and baby led. The most common question I get asked is what does a typical newborn session look like? My response…is baby led. Every session is different, unique and authentic. While we have some ideas of what is important to be captured, telling your story through my eyes, interactions, the experience is always one of a kind.

Thank you for trusting me with your sweetest littles and as always…a wonderful honour and journey to walk these fleeting milestone moments with you!

Enjoy and till next time!
