red balloons for ryan

About a week ago I heard – as many others did – about sweet little 3 1/2 year old Ryan from California. Tragically Ryan was struck by a truck while playing at his cousins house and was killed. His mom Jacqui, is a mommy blogger and the community has wrapped their arms around her and her husband Dan, rallying to raise money and send some healing comfort to them in this incomprehensibly difficult time. Jacqui’s best friend Alissa asked that this mother’s day, everyone send a red balloon to Ryan….and so we did, from the tippy top of the Rockies. Below is a photo from Jacqui’s Instagram of her and her husband, Dan sending some balloons to their little man…. my heart just aches for them.

Jayme – 6 months | red deer family photographer
Sweet Jayme is 6 months and since Aislinn was still pretty unsure of her new sister when we did Jayme's newborn photos, we decided to focus mostly on their connection for this one. These two were in such good moods on Sunday and I am so happy I got to see such genuine interactions between them. Towards the end of the session, little Jayme slipped down and bumped her head on the arm of the couch and was notably upset. The last shot is probably one of my favourites shots ever. A loving tender moment between mother and daughter, that little tear just kills me....
