Twin Birth + Welcome Home

{birth story}

If it's not their first born, then it's not uncommon for parents to want their children to witness the birth, or be there soon afterwards to meet their new sibling, or in this case, siblings! But sometimes it's just not possible. Either it's a c-section or the birth happens in the middle of the night, making it tricky for children to be present. Many of these families add a Welcome Home session. Which means I will meet them at their home as they arrive from the hospital or as the grandparents bring the kids back home, so I can capture those moments where siblings (and/or other family members) meet the new addition(s)! That's what I did with this family!
Scroll down to see some of my favourite images from this birth and from when the siblings met, and don't forget to watch the full Birth Story at the bottom.

Two Islands Weekend

Two Islands Weekend is only a month and a half away and I think there's only a handful of tickets left! If you went to summer camp as a kid, and even if you didn't, you will LOVE Two Islands Weekend adult summer camp. It's from September 7th to 9th, and it's all the things you'd experience at camp like, bunk beds, water sports, campfire sing-along, crafts, cooking class, ropes course, yoga, beyonce dance classes, pinhole camera's, sports, a colour war, karaoke, dance party, a talent show and it's only for adults, so there's endless booze, and super delicious food served by some super fabulous chefs!
I'm a camp counsellor who documents the weekend and I host the pinhole camera and darkroom workshop! It's so much fun.
