I loved meeting Cruz and his family. Daddy went out and got me and mommy lattes during the shoot. I keep the room 85-90 degrees during the shoot in order to keep the babies warm, but even in that heat I cannot turn down a latte.
After our newborn photography session, Cruz’s mom made the ‘mistake’ of brining all her lovely prints to a family reunion. I got a call saying that she needed to reorder everything “because they took every last picture- even the box!” I thought that was pretty funny. I guess the moral of the story is to order enough prints for all your extended relatives… or to hide your beautiful baby pictures from your extended relatives. I had a new set of prints to mom as quickly as I could and I know she got a lot of enjoyment out of the reprints. I’m sure all the original prints found very happy homes as well!
I love working with Guelph babies. I like to travel as well, but babies in Wellington County hold a special place in my heart. I have run into Cruz and his mommy strolling the beautiful streets of downtown Guelph a couple times since his infant photos were taken. It is so nice to watch my little clients grow up. That first newborn baby stage really is fleeting. One moment they are teeny little bundles and the next thing you know, they are sitting up and babbling and growing big and strong. I am happy that Cruz’s family gave me the opportunity to captured these moments for them.
