Good Morning Annabella

{birth story}

When I met Kelly Swartz she was 17 weeks pregnant with her third baby dragon. I love that she loves dragons so much because I also love dragons so much! We walked around Trinity Bellwoods Park during the cherry blossoms and snapped some baby bump pictures, (which you can see HERE) and she told me a bit about herself. She has travelled, knows quite a few languages, she has experienced life, and studied hard and now she is an Erotic Expert and Health Coach who raises baby dragons. She’s the woman behind Awoken Beauty! In fact, if you are interested, she is hosting an upcoming workshop called, “Sex, Cannabis, and Intimacy - for women” because since the legalization of Cannabis here in Canada, Kelly has explored a whole new world! Check it out! It sounds like the kind of Mother’s Day gift everyone deserves!
Anyway, I followed Kelly on Instagram and watched as she documented and shared her life with 2 toddlers and a growing baby. It got me more excited to document this beautiful day. When I got the call that early morning, I raced to the birth centre. Third babies are predictably unpredictable. When I arrived labour was in full swing. This mama was circled with love and support. It was a beautiful sight. After learning that meconium was present talk of transferring to the hospital started. But Kelly knew better because mama’s always know!! She knew that there was no time to transfer. Contractions were coming hard and fast. And she was right! In no time at all sweet little Annabella made her debut and everything was absolutely perfect!

Sweet Baby Gia

Oh did I ever have so much fun with this family! I loved being able to document this family with a new baby, 6 year old twins, and two teens. I love the vibrant garden and the vibrant energy this family has! The love and silliness and beauty shines right through. I love how excited their pup even is to have a new baby in the house! Of course baby Gia pretty much just slept and smiled her way through her session. She even rocked her posed shots! She flashed her bright smile, she stared in to the camera with her beautiful eyes, and she also slept and gave us some sweet sleepy expressions.
In-home lifestyle newborn sessions are wonderful! If you want this kind of newborn session, but you also want those posed studio shots, you can definitely have both! I have an add-on where I can bring the natural light studio to your home. It’s the perfect way to end a lifestyle newborn session!
