I can’t believe it’s only been a couple of years since I had my first session with baby Lucas. Now he’s a big brother to baby Jacob. Yet again, our photo day was hot and humid. Sam and Fiona are now pros at this so it didn’t phase them one bit. Lucas is a thrill seeker and loves to be silly. Jacob loves to wear a smirk and knows he’s adorable. It was a fun packed day that ended with watermelon. Yes, they’ve got game.

He’s super cute, easy going and happy (even without cake:)). Not only were the decor and people amazing…the fooood!!! I finally met Katrina, the woman behind the amazing pulled pork, fresh buns, homemade sauce and slaw. You can follow her amazing food adventures here. An afternoon with Logan and his family was an absolute joy to take part in their celebration of life and love.

It’s a party for the baby that’s coming. There’s also no baby at the shower because she’s still in her tummy.” Yes, those are the facts of a baby shower delivered simply. This however, was not just another shower. It was a day I’ve been wishing for a while. Tracy, my cousin/sister is one of the most special people in my life. This year I’ve had the privilege to spend much more time with her as I’ve been working part time. We’ve spent many days exploring new food adventures week after week. During one of our outings, she tells me she’s pregnant. Best day ever.

Bonnie, her dear friend and host, created the beautiful decor and delicious food! I can’t express how thankful I was to be a part of her very special day. Tracy was surrounded by so many wonderful family and friends who continually offer her so much love and support.

Dear baby girl,
I can’t wait to meet you! Your mama is one very special lady. Your daddy ain’t too shabby either:)
I promise that you’ll be loved beyond your wildest dreams. Many people care for you and are
ready to help you grow into the beauty that you are meant to be. Trust me, you’re in good hands.
Love,
Auntie Yvonne.

sfl1sfl5sfl6sfl11sfl3sfl12sfl10sfl14 So awesome to see old friends with a brand new edition in the family! This fabulous young couple have been living an amazing new life in Hong Kong. I was privileged to capture some memories during their visit back to Toronto. Sam and Fiona were looking forward to a more ‘spring-like’ type of weather here but instead experienced the same heat wave they’re used to:P Nonetheless, they still rocked it. Baby Lucas is an absolute sweet heart and a pro at loving the camera. Samfi, you’re amazing people and it was great witnessing you both now as amazing parents!!

It seems like just yesterday that I took photos of baby Luke, now he’s running circles around me and climbing better than some monkeys. He’s now a proud big brother to his baby sister Miah. Luke loves to take a break from his busy life to give her tons of cuddles and kisses. Syl and Gary couldn’t be happier…probably hoping she’ll help keep watch and report on all of Luke’s future climbing adventures.

So precious. Looking at baby Leah now, you wouldn’t suspect that she was delivered by daddy–at home!!! Yes, he should now and forever be referred to as SUPER DAD! I have no words. Well, except for the fact that my hubby would probably be on the ground, passed out:P He opted for being at the ‘head’ of the bed during both births–need I say more? But let’s not forget Helen a.k.a. Miraculous Momma, endured quite a unique delivery–a woman of immense strength.

Big sister Ema couldn’t be more proud and sweet. Her momma instincts have already kicked into high gear. Helen and John are amazing parents to the most beautiful girls. Ema just inherited a super cute bff. Sisters rule.
