Welcome to the world, Thomas!

I firmly believe in the age-old adage, “When at first you don’t succeed, try try again.”  Which is a lesson in timing and the perfect opportunity.  This was the case with the newborn photo session of Neli and Rob’s son, Thomas.

Originally, Neli and Rob wanted me to shoot their wedding, but I was unable to due to scheduling conflicts.  Imagine my surprise and delight when they contacted me again, this time to capture their firstborn child!

The photos turned out beautifully with my favourite being the one with Thomas swaddled tightly lying on top of the coffee table and his parents are grinning from ear to ear in the background.  Thomas seems to be saying, “I hope this is the final shot, when is she gonna be done already??!!”

All in all, a very wonderful day, and also proves that “good things come to those who wait.”

    Thank you so much Melanie for coming out to our home 8 days after our little one was born.

    Despite our little Tommy crying during parts of the photoshoot, you remained calmed and managed to capture some tender moments along the way. It is perhaps these random photos that are our most favourite.

    We were both impressed by the variety of photos taken in such a short period of time. Who knew that an ironing board and a blanket I had laying on the couch could transform into the perfect photo background! Loved your creativity and the resulting photos.

    It was important to us that both sets of grandparents were included and you demonstrated professionalism in coordinating the 7 of us… no small task!

    Thanks so much for working with us and giving us such precious images we will treasure always.

    We look forward to celebrating more milestones with you in the years to come!

    Sincere thanks,
    Neli, Rob & Thomas
