red deer family lifestyle photographer ➾ Jensen

 This lifestyle session is simple.

Just my son, my bed and my camera but it means more to me than anything other session I have done…

A few days ago,  we found out that our baby to be (due in April) has a heart defect and will need surgery within the first week of life with a possibility of 3 subsequent surgeries after that until the age of 4. Not the greatest way to kick off a new year. I was quite low and depressed but knew that I needed to get out of the funk. I have always said that photography is my therapy, when i’m behind the camera I don’t think about anything other than what is going on in that exact moment  and this session I photographed who I love the most…my 2 1/2 year old son, Jensen. Normally (and I don’t blame him), he HATES having his photo taken but on this day he was all for it! Being a ham in front of the camera, posing, and for anyone that has or has photographed a busy toddler, they know that is a difficult task haha. We shot this right before and after nap time so I let him take his snooze in our room so I could get some sweet and innocent sleeping shots. Just watching him sleep gave me such a sense of calm and determination. We can overcome this, it’s just a bump in the road….our little babe will pull through beautifully <3

 Our little baby Hudson arrived at 8:17pm on April 18th. I ended up having a natural breech labour and had him out in 17 min! Long story short, we waited 10 days for the doctors to decide what to do for his surgery and on Tuesday April 30th, they set a date for that Thursday. I was so anxious to get things moving so we could get home but also completely terrified. On the morning of May 2, I handed over my 14 day old son to have one of his three open heart surgeries. The hardest moment of my life so far. After an excruciating 6.5 hour wait, the surgeon came out and said everything went very well...Lucas and I broke down crying with relief. H ...
