The miracle of life. It wows me everytime.
Not having kids myself, I often wonder whether I’m “qualified” to do such wonderful shoots. I am one of those people that likes to know how things feel. You can’t just tell me the pot is hot, I need to touch it! So I can give empathy. (But in this case, it will just have to wait ;-) … Now I’m talking about kids and not touching the hot pot!).
Thursday I met Trudi at Pines Beach. Just days away from giving birth to her second son. She snuck away with her 9 year old son Devon to have this shoot, so she could surprise her husband with the images. Pretty neat thought.
I love how weather plays such a huge part in how a location looks and feels. I was only here with Moira & Rod a couple of weeks prior on a super sunny afternoon. You wouldn’t even know it’s the same location. The mood this afternoon as the rain played the game and stayed away was bea-uuuuutifully perfect for what Trudi wanted to achieve.
This is Devon. An awesome young man with a heart of gold. He’s great big brother material!
Quite the smooth guy isn’t he?!
Trudi looks absolutely sensational in the final days of her pregnancy.
You can never have enough sweetness and heart.
Baby number 2’s Dad had his birthday yesterday. So we thought we’d wish him a Happy Birthday!
Where did that wave come from?
I’ve been in touch, but still no baby. He will be here any moment now. A great gift for Christmas and a beautiful way to start the new year. Enjoy your newborn when he comes Trudi. A very Merry Christmas to you and your family! :)
