A couple weeks back, my great friend Lindsay zipped out to the mountains to shoot some baby belly/fall photos for us. She did our first real set of family photos last spring…clearly, a lot has changed since then! Morris is becoming a cooler little person all the time, I absolutley love spending my days with him. Things are undoubtedly going to get shaken right up around here in the next couple of months. Though, it makes me pretty excited to know that there’s another cool little person cooking away in my tummy who will join our crew by the new year. These past 21 months as parents have been pretty rad and this is EXACTLY how I want to remember our family of three.
Lindsay got THE BEST Morris expressions…he never looks at my lens like this.
This guy! I could have never ever hoped for a better partner to do life with.
Lindsay completely nailed this session, there’s no way I could have hoped for anything better. Between the quickly fading sunlight & dropping temperatures, a wiggly, high-energy toddler and most of all, an annoying 30 week-pregnant-mum far too concerned about looking like a blob while chasing after and negotiating with the wiggly, high-energy toddler she had her work cut out for her. Somehow, we caught some killer patches of late afternoon light, I don’t look that much like a blob and she captured just the perfect amount of Morris wiggles. Thank you Lindsay! I’d highly recommend reaching out to her if you’re looking for family photos over the next 5 to 6 months while I am on maternity leave.
With baby #2 arriving before we know it, things are going to be quieting down even more [...I realize I haven't exactly been posting at the speed of light this past little while...] but I still plan to share occasional tidbits of my personal work and our family snaps over here if you’re curious to know what’s up in our world.
We’ve got a bit of news around our happy little house…
The thought of Morris as a big brother still boggles my mind…but it makes my heart so big and gushy at the same time.
I thought it was hard to keep this news a secret last time…my baby bump has been already peeking out in full force for the past month! Despite my complete lack of energy and constant nausea I’m feeling pretty lucky these days.
It’s been quite sometime since I shared many of our personal photos here on this blog. Adam and I are nearly 10 months into this parenthood journey. It has been a pretty rad ride, so far. I never knew how much I’d love being a mum until I was thrown right into it. Life has been so fun, so exhausting and so incredibly fulfilling since we became a family of three back in January. I’ve learned a lot about babies and a lot about myself. My time management, productivity and ability to run on broken sleep has increased to levels I never knew possible. I love having a built-in adventure buddy always willing to tag along…and pose for the camera, of course.
A couple weeks ago – after the snow but before the freeze – Morris and I took a day trip out to Lake Louise to take in the sights. I’ve never seen this iconic lake looking quite as stunning as it did this day. Coincidentally, this was the day I began to get big, consistent smiles from Baby Mo for the camera…I think he’s going to love winter! If you ask me, I’d say we had a pretty great day together. It’s got me even more excited for all the little outings we’ve got ahead of us as he grows up and becomes more interactive.
Anyhow, here is a bit of mum spam mixed in with some really beautiful scenic shots of our amazing backyard. I hope everyone is enjoying this first little bit of the winter season!
