Many of you have heard the story of my family reordering and reordering birth announcements when my nephew Joey was born. In the end, 150 were distributed. My dad was stealing announcements from the pile quicker than I could order them. He was so proud of baby Joey that every person he came into contact with needed a birth announcement. My dad saw it as a way to share his excitement, but a business owner, I saw them as little maple keys blowing in the wind. Eventually, one landed in the right place and grew into a referral tree. When the average family send out birth announcements, the grandfather’s chiropractor usually doesn’t make the list. Fortunately for me, we’re not average, and that is why I have the opportunity to share this sweet little guy with you- the chiropractor’s grandson.
Born in spring, Weston’s grandmother had a long, cold winter worth of time to prepare for his arrival. She made him a stunning quilt and a baby blanket to coordinate with his nursery theme. Both made an appearance during his newborn photography session. He had the coolest nursery I have seen in quite a while. As a modern lumberjack baby, Weston’s room had this fabulous birch tree wall paper. Plaid fabrics and vintage outdoor sporting goods made the perfect accent pieces. One of his vintage pieces was a beautiful old minnow bucket. Mason happily slept as I posed him in the bucket for a few photos.
After a wonderful day of taking newborn photos of a sweet lumberjack baby, I got to eat lunch at the amazing . Keeping the spirit of the alive, The Robin’s Nest had a ‘Liquid Gold Latte’ on their menu with real maple syrup in it. It is definitely worth stopping in to try. Breakfast at the St. Jacobs Market, lunch at The Robin’s Nest and then snack at Sittler’s Bakery in Conestogo would pretty much be the most delicious local food tour ever…. but I was supposed to be writing about baby photos
The beautiful quilt grandma made:
Grandma’s handiwork again- I am completely in love with this beautiful blanket!
