second star {personal}

Introducing our beautiful son, Felix August Alderaan! He was born in our home at 7:23pm on March 3, 2016 - weighing 9 lbs 10 oz, 21 inches long. Djuna is a wonderful big sister and we are all doing really well - although quiiiiite tired, as you can imagine.

i've always heard that you take less photos of the second baby and i have definitely found that to be true. so much less time to lay around and stare at Felix the way i did with Djuna... he spends a lot of time wrap-napping while i chase after his sister and the dogs and attempt to keep us fed and clothed. took me 3 weeks to get to posting this and i haven't even written out his birth story yet but look forward to sharing that soon on my tumblr

i am catching up on sharing all of my work from last season, and looking ahead to an amazing 2016 season with my wonderful clients. this summer booked up fast and it's going to be a good one. cheers!!

this little family is special to me - i had the honor of photographing Lucy's birth last February! i have yet to share those beautiful photos (though you can see a little sneak peek of one of them below - look out for the sweet rainbow-stamped foot!) but hope to get around to putting together my birth photography portfolio soon. i was thrilled to be asked to shoot a lifestyle session for their lovely family 9 months after Lucy's birth, it is always a joy to see the Reichmuths! especially on such a glorious sunshiney fall day.

PS - Brittany is an amazing photographer herself - check her out here!

a few weeks before their vow renewal, i met Kittie, Brian, and Hazel at Council Crest, the spot where Brian proposed. we had had to reschedule the original session due to rain so it wasn't the whole family (Hazel's big brother Noah was out of town), but we got some sweet photos of the three of them that i wanted to share. Kittie and i originally met through a babywearing group and i was thrilled that we got some action shots with Hazel in one of her beautiful woven wraps. 

my blog post of their vow renewal is coming up tomorrow! <3 

iver | esther short park {vancouver lifestyle family photography}

i had a lovely time with Iver and his wonderful mamas in august, following them around on a typical sunday morning. they played at the park, we wandered the farmer's market picking out produce, and ended with a sweet treat back at the park. it's silly how long it's taken me to blog this! a little bit of summer on these cold days, enjoy!
