Mom to baby Miya that you met last week, I thought I would show you one of the lovely maternity photos taken just a couple of weeks before Miya’s birth. Maternity photography is best when kept simple, I love black and white photography for its simplicity.
I love newborn babies, okay, I love all babies…
And I have great admiration for professional baby photographers. My wonderful friends Brett and Amrita proud new parents allowed me an opportunity to take a few pictures of their beautiful baby girl.
I was over to visit Amrita, Brett and Miya on Monday and of course to take a few pictures. Miya was a sleep when I first arrived and Brett was holding her in his lap. She had just eaten and was dozing peacefully. It was a wonderful afternoon and I can hardly wait to get through the photos that were taken.
“A baby is something you carry inside you for nine months, in your arms for three years and in your heart till the day you die.”
“Sugar and Spice and all things nice, that’s what little girls are made of…..”
This one was fun, but only take two attempts, little Addilyn tipped over the first time! On the plus side it won’t be long before she rolls over all by herself. The big girls Skylar and Alexa were perfect, they remembered to watch me, not the baby, so I could get the shot.
A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bank balance smaller, home happier, clothes dirty, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for – unknown.
We first met Addilyn before Christmas, she is now about 5 months old, and has clearly made some major decisions about how she will live her life – afterall cheering for the Saskatchewan Rough Riders is usually a life long obsession. Okay maybe, just probably, she had some family influence, I think it was Grandma Carolynne that bought the jersey, and the socks seem to be a big hit.
Carolynne brought the whole family by a while ago for photos, so we will have more photos during the week, they are almost ready.
It is always good to have the camera ready for those in-between moments!
To be honest Sophie was really ready to sit and have her picture taken, so we did a little playing around, and I asked her to give her dad a kiss on the cheek. The Square format eliminates the background, giving us a less distracting image. While black and white, gives even more emphasis on the faces, and the little kiss even further.
Hopefully this is one photo that father and daughter, will cherish for a long time.

When you are a little girl, one of the best things is cuddling up on your Aunt’s knee and she wraps her arms around you! It is special! I met Sophie for the first time between Christmas and New Years, while visiting her Grandma’s and Grandpa’s house! She is one happy little girls, and her Aunt Mel one of the special people in her life. It was great to meet Sophie, to visit with the entire family, to get a few pictures and share a few memories.
