it’s such a unique and profound time in the lives of expectant parents… weeks before the baby is to arrive and things are starting to look like someone’s coming. there’s a crib and a sometimes a whole new room that this new being with occupy. there are clothes and toys and various other cute little things starting to gather and there’s an energy that is unmistakable. something amazing is happening and a family is about to grow.
aaron, heather and bronco are excitedly awaiting the arrival of a baby. it’s aaron and heather’s first as their current baby bronco is an 11 month old german shepherd. heather contacted me about coming into calgary to photograph this new beginning for them and i was delighted. we had attended a wedding a couple of years prior that they were guests of and i was photographing. we actually have multiple ‘small world’ connections. it was such an honour that these two loved my work and asked me to help them remember this part of their story.
aaron and heather have a lovely home… it was a perfect place to start this journey. they actually renovated the entire place themselves, giving it special significance for their family. bronco was absolutely adorable and though he was a little under the weather, he happily moved from room to room with us, getting into as many shots as possible. it was sweet to see him sticking so close to his mom and dad. bronco is currently learning which toys will be his and which are for the new baby… it’s a complex system at first but he’s definitely a quick learner.
aaron and heather, i am so thrilled for you both and it was such a pleasure meeting you. i look forward hearing about little ‘a’ when they arrive and to your newborn session in the spring!
