What better Christmas present could there possibly be than a brand new baby? Meet Benjamin. His family was surprised when he arrived a few weeks early, just in time to enjoy the opening of his Dad’s business second local “Evolve“. Evolve is an integrative wellness centre with two locations downtown. You can see Benjamin below sporting one of his dad’s hats. He may be wearing in on the wrong end but he wears it well.
This little guy is so lucky. He has parents that are smitten with him of course but he also lives somewhere wonderful. Right now it is probably a winter wonderland. A long winding driveway through beautiful snow covered pine trees will take you right to his front door near Bragg Creek. Outside his front door is a pond so he can learn to fish in the summertime and skate in the winter, two sweet horses, chickens, lots of space to run and play and a sweet dog. There will be no shortage of adventures for him I’m sure! He’s already full of spirit as his eyes were wide open for most of his newborn photos.
Seems to me that this week would be the perfect week to hibernate. Once the weather in Calgary gets this cold wouldn’t you rather be sleeping the days away or perhaps snuggled on the couch with a cup of tea or hot cocoa? This little guy has the right idea… he’s cuddled in on a warm beanbag. In the meantime, I’m here dreaming of sunshine and warmer temperatures so hopefully I can do some more outdoor shooting with families before Christmas arrives.
Stay warm everyone!
There’s nothing that a good ol’ game of “What Time is it Mr. wWolf” can’t fix. If there’s a shy little one in the group this game will bring them out of there shell. Especially when the wolf yells “it’s time to get you” in a growly voice and runs after the kids. Little feet pitter patter down the path and giggles aren’t far behind. Sometimes I would almost rather watch, or play, than photograph!
I’m sad that my outdoor family photography sessions have almost come to a close until the spring! It was so great to see so many of the kids that I photographed as babies. They are all getting so big! When I started photographing newborns I hadn’t even thought about the fact that I would get to see so many of these little ones grow up and now I continuously smile as I browse through facebook and see all of the milestones that happen. First foods, first steps, first christmas etc. I love my clients!
