farewell 2018, you were lovely.

Another trip around the sun. Another look back, in order to look forward again. Oh. My. Heart.

Thank-you 2018, you were lovely.

This year’s song choice is a sweet little favourite…a SHORT favourite: “Happy Everafter In Your Eyes” by Ben Harper. The struggle to feature all sessions and clients was very real. In the end, it was impossible. Lol. Mental note for next year :)

I’m very thankful for this look back - it forces me to pause and reflect on the year that’s passed; to revisit the stories and special moments that were shared with me. I hope there never comes a time when I don’t shed a tear (or a bazillion) or laugh out loud or sit with a silly grin while I pour over the year’s images. Thank-you never ever seems to cut it, but I am thankful beyond words. The invitation into your stories and precious moments is a gift and the ultimate trust - my heart is full and so very grateful.

Please enjoy this year’s love note from me to you.

With a grateful heart.

Only love.

One of my most favourite things to do is to photograph a family over the course of their first year of 'becoming'. Becoming a family of 3, or 4... It's my absolute honour and pleasure to capture the first year in the life of a new little human - from mommy's maternity session all the way to that first birthday milestone and all the beautiful family moments in between. 

This was my second 'Baby's First Year' for this sweet family. During Colin's 6 month session there was a tornado warning issued, unbeknownst to us - the humorous part being my endless comments about how I loved the moody lighting :) In the end, all was well and this family were their usual adorable, fun and easy-going selves.

Heather Lynch Photography - London, Ontario, Canada

Little Simon was one of the sleepiest babies I have ever had the pleasure of photographing. I met him when he was only a few days old and already there was a sense that he had always been there, surrounded by so much love. 

These first precious moments; there is real magic in them. The new, the wonder, the unbelievable love - every family's flow is different and so unique to them. It takes my breath away to see the beauty in them finding their way together: finding their flow. 

There are times when I truly believe you can all hear me *sigh* :)

Oh, baby Emma and her beautiful family! Gorgeous natural light and a furry big sister who was the perfect combo of playful and protective, were just icing on the cake :)

I was so excited to hear the news that this sweet little family was expecting again! It's such an honour to be invited into these precious first moments. And to be able to watch and capture a family as they grow is the very best! 

Welcome, sweet Charlotte!

Charlotte's 8 month session took place on a gorgeous sunlit evening in Wortley Village. We walked and played the whole way through her neighbourhood. (The bonus is, it's my neighbourhood too!) This little girl couldn't have been happier…except for that moment when she had ice cream for the first time :) Perfection.

Stay tuned for the last instalment of her Baby's First Year.

In case it isn't obvious, I should tell you that this session was *super* fun ;) How adorable is this family?! Add in towering trees, golden light, lots of energy, laughter and so much l.o.v.e. - so lovely.
