Little Nico

A few months ago, my beautiful and talented friend Cali wrote me to come out and spend time with her newest addition. I hadn’t seen Cali for many years, and I was so excited to spend time with her in her beautiful condo in the heart of Vancouver. Cali and I go way back, when we were drama students together in University. She is the kindest and warmest person, and also so so funny. I’m always laughing and smiling when I’m around her. When I arrived, it was like no time had passed. I was laughing instantly, and her little boy just warmed my heart. It was lovely morning to spend with a beautiful family.

The Standeven's with baby Benjamin

One of my favourite kinds of sessions is coming a home freshly after a new baby has arrived.  There's a quiet magic in the air, and a special energy that is like no other time in your life. This is how it felt when I walked into Kim and Kevin's house.  Baby Ben came a little earlier than planned, and was oh so tiny, but the love for a new brother was evident immediately.  I love spending time with families as they go about there day, and I'm just there to capture those moments that we so often forget in the fog of parenting in those early days.
