Aside from creating beautiful imagery, my favourite thing about my job is meeting new parents. It’s even better when those new parents are old friends! I had not seen Maren’s mom and dad in nearly 10 years. I attended high school with her Dad, and met her Mom some years later at some party’s and get togethers with friends. They had since moved from town, so I was super excited to hear from them and book their first baby’s photo session!
We had discussed maybe purple as an accent colour for the session, but I kept being drawn by the aqua blue blankets and props. Maren’s name means “of the sea”, and her parents were married by the ocean. I had no idea that the aqua teal colour I had chosen for their session was also their wedding colour! (I pulled out the purple items too, just in case, but they loved the blue!). So fitting to use it for their baby girl’s first photography shoot as well.
It was a pleasure to reconnect with you two again, and meet sweet Maren. Congratulations on your beautiful baby girl!
