Those little toes, don’t you just want to eat them up.
(Side note: that is such a strange saying!)
I photographed Alexis’ parents wedding in November of 2012. In November of 2013 I photographed their maternity portraits. Over the past year Tara and I have become close (I love when clients become friends!) I couldn’t wait to photograph this little one – she made us all wait an extra 9 days before she made her grand entrance ...and after 37 hours of labour with no epidural, this mama is a hero!
Tara and Derek are huge Ottawa Senators fans, so we had to take this one in Daddy’s catcher. Mommy brought in this custom tutu from Picture Perfect Props by Mich. I’m in love with this image, so simple and sweet. This little girl is going to be VERY well protected! “Don’t mess with our little sister.”
I have to do a throwback to this photograph on Tara and Derek’s wedding day!
I love Tara’s laid back attitude towards life, I honestly wish I was more like her!
Dogs on her wedding dress? No big deal. Taking Miss Alexis to her Daddy’s hockey games before she is two weeks old. Yep, that happened!
Mommy shared this photograph on Facebook with the following caption;
“Please note the post baby belly…hey new Moms – you just did the most INCREDIBLE thing you will ever do in your life. You are beautiful….so OWN that post baby body!!!!!!!!!!!”
There need to be more women in the world who realize this. Society has warped our view of what is real and what is beautiful. I adore this little family, I can’t wait to watch Alexis grow.
