My beautiful wife pregnant with our first son. This was amazing to watch. I was in complete awe at the way her body was creating life. I thought she looked so beautiful through the entire time. (and I secretly miss her belly)

life changing.

Someone has been keeping us very busy lately, so I apologize for the lack of blog posts.

Tomorrow.. Cooper is 1 month old already!
I still can't believe I'm a dad. It's surreal but amazing at the same time.

Despite the severe lack of sleep, and stress that has come as a result of taking care of a newborn, there are those moments when he's looking back at you, and you forget all that and nothing else matters.

And when he falls asleep in your arms, his peaceful innocence washes over you and somehow he has just stolen your heart.

he is life changing.

a letter to our son.

Dear Son,

In a few short days, you will make your entrance to the world.
Your mom and I are very anxious, nervous, and most of all excited for your arrival.
For the past 9 months, you don't know it, but you've been a part of our lives already.
We've brought you along on our daily routines, outings and family gatherings.
We hope we didn't bore you too much.

Every couple weeks, with the help of the doctor, we checked in on you.
To make sure you were healthy, comfortable, and growing.
You did everything you were expected to do.
And we were in awe of every moment.

We knew eventually, you could hear us. Probably just murmurs to you really.
But we talked to you often.
Mostly asking you just to stop kicking the crap out of mom's insides.
Sometimes you'd listen, but most of the time, you had your own schedule.

So now, months have become days... hours really.
You are about to have a lifetime ahead of you.
And please know that want only the best for you.
As your parents, we promise to be the best we can.

We promise to;
Be strong as we can be for you.
Guide you to make the right decisions.
Take you on many adventures.
Show you how to have fun.
Teach you everything we can.
Allow you to grow and explore.
Make you feel safe.
Keep you warm.
And most of all... give you all the love we are able to give.

Know now, that we are bound to make mistakes along the way.
Our mistakes will be honest ones.
We will learn too.
In fact, you will probably teach us far more then we could ever teach you in return.
And we are looking forward to every single moment.

Love,
Mom and Dad

less than two weeks left! - ontario maternity photographer

We're down to less than two weeks until we are proud parents and we're not sure where the past 9 months has gone!! Time always seems to speed up when good things are happening in your life. That's what I love so much about photographs. Capturing those moments and creating something that brings you back to exactly how you were feeling at that precise time. It's truly amazing.

Speaking of amazing.. I am in awe of what the female body is capable of. I think Stacey really is glowing, and I keep telling her, part of me is going to miss the belly when it's gone. It's just so darn cute on her. Things are getting a bit uncomfortable now for her though, and an uninterrupted, comfortable sleep is hard to come by. Which is tough, especially when this is the time we'll both be needing as much sleep as we get in store for our impending sleepless nights ahead. It's really too bad you can't actually 'bank' some sleep for those times when you need it. ;)

For now, we will enjoy our few remaining days of being 'two' and look forward to the fun, exciting and even more loved filled days of being 'three'

We really can't wait to meet the little guy. He is loved already.

Rhonda, Meghan & Aiden - Southern Ontario Family Photographer

Another beautiful fall day meant more Family portrait time. Rhonda wanted some nice photos of her with her amazing kids, Meghan and Aiden. Our backdrop was Webster's Falls, a very beautiful (and popular) spot near Hamilton, Ontario. The fall colours had attracted many others, but we managed to find some nice quiet spots too shoot.
