Declan is the adorable son of Miriam & Cam. It was great to see them again. Miriam is doing her residency and often has to work obscene hours on little sleep.  I was so surprised to hear that all that sleep deprivation was nothing compared to the exhaustion experienced while caring for a newborn!

Declan fought sleep for a long time but when he finally did pass out, he was pretty easy going. 

I think that's why it's sometimes so hard to get great pictures of little babies. We need to be oh so patient and just follow their lead. Almost always, the best photos are taken in the last ten minutes of the session.

Meredith and Family

I had the pleasure of being invited into Meredith's home again this winter to capture this beautiful girl with her parents.  You may remember Meredith from our photo session that we did when she was five.  Now she's eight. She is strong and beautiful and loves her parents very much.

On a side note, I wanted to mention that Meredith's parents submitted one of my photos to a Valentine's Day photo contest at the Ottawa Citizen. It was taken at our first session three years ago.  Long story short, they won the contest and will enjoy a weekend away.  My photo was published in the Saturday edition of the paper about a month ago.  I'm delighted they won as they definitely deserve it.  I'm also pretty proud that it was my photo.

Meredith's mom, Julie is a talented writer and an all-round awesome person. You can't help but want to be her friend.  Please go now and visit her website: www.whatiwouldtellyou.com . She has written an amazing essay about her life as a mother of a daughter with cerebral palsy and writes a blog on the subject.  I dare you not to be moved by her words.

Meredith's dad, Tim, is a pretty great guy, too.

Seriously. Go now and visit www.whatiwouldtellyou.com .

Meet Jonah, the most adorable little man with the sweetest parents and two very large, very protective four-legged 'aunts'. 

Jonah's parents were gifted with a photo session at their baby shower.  I thought that was a fabulous idea!  Gift certificates are available in all denominations.
