Goldhawk Family + 1 {Maternity} | Sarnia Maternity Photographer

You know what I love more than a sweet couple during a maternity session? A sweet couple plus 2 beautiful kiddos as well! I had the absolute pleasure of working with Nicole & Jason as they eagerly awaited the arrival of their 3rd child. This session & their impending newborn session was special for two reasons. 1) Nicole was referred by her Sister-in-law, Alicia after I did their son Nash’s newborn photos in 2011 (Nash {Newborn} | Sarnia Newborn Photographer) and 2) This was not only their 3rd and last child, but the 1st one to get newborn photos. I can’t tell you how many times I have heard, “Well I didn’t get them done for my 1st so I don’t think it would be fair to get them for my 2nd”, etc. What I hear even more  a few weeks later, “Why didn’t I get his/ her newborn photos done!?!?”

For those of you who may end up in this same situation, let me offer you a little advice. I believe each newborn should be treated uniquely! You will find you won’t be able to do everything for your 2nd, 3rd, 5th even 10th that you did for the 1st ones. Take me for example. I have a few thousand photos of my sons 1st year yet only a few hundred of my daughter. It is a proven thing, that the more children you have, the busier you get. So PLEASE take photos as much as you can, even if it is just during a milestone. I started doing photography right around the time my daughter was born, so I have no “professional” shots of my son and the attempt I made at newborn ones of my daughter were quite honestly a disaster. So what will I do when I have a 3rd, 4th or 5th (JK on the 5th. haha, Tim you thought you got your way!!). I will for sure do newborn photos!!! Chances are by the time they turn 18 that may be 1 of the only sessions they have to look back on!;)

Jason and Nicole your family is just beautiful! It was an absolute pleasure working with you. I can’t wait to complete your “Babies 1st Year Package” and see how your little one grows! Xoxo

**I had no idea when we picked this location that the rocks in which we caught the last photos of the evening were where Jason proposed!! Just LOVE it!
