Before any newborn session, I meet the parents-to-be in their home so that we can get to know each other a little bit before they welcome their new love and their lives are forever changed. I generally try and plan the meeting for 3-4 weeks before the expected date of delivery so that we aren’t rushed before baby arrives. When I met these lovely souls it was a freezing cold winter evening and they’d been out all day purchasing baby goods. We joked about not being ready at all for their baby boy to be earthside and that they weren’t sure they’d ever really be ready (truth: you never are!). I joked that she was far enough along that baby really could show up anytime, but likely it would be a while. Well, only one day later, Mr Alistair made his grand entrance into the world in amazing fashion shocking everyone involved. He even decided that he loved his home SO much that he was going to make his very first appearance there, without giving anyone time to make it to the hospital. Babies really do have minds of their own! (And really, that never changes as they grow….)
I met Alistair almost a month later, once things had settled down a bit and everyone was into a new routine. It was yet another cold February day so we stayed inside this family’s beautiful Ritchie home and I captured really casual moments of everyone bonding.
Below is the full slideshow from this Edmonton newborn photo session, followed by a few of my favourite stills.
