On January 3rd, just as I was preparing for my planned maternity session with Felicity, she called me unexpectedly. “I’m really sorry,” she began, “but I won’t be able to do the maternity session with you because I don’t have a belly anymore… I have a baby boy now!” Alaric was born almost a month prematurely on December 31st. Clearly he was anxious to get here in time for the New Year!
As a Montreal portrait photographer who does a fair share of maternity sessions, I was not surprised that Felicity’s firstborn came a little early. You’d be surprised at how often this happens. While I was disappointed that I was not able to photograph Felicity’s belly, I was thrilled when she asked me to come over and do a newborn session instead. A few days later, when little Alaric was just 10 days old, I headed to his home and spent the day with this sweet little angel… and his favorite cat, Boris Bobo. Boris made several cameo appearances and almost stole the show! In fact, I think I may ask Felicity if I can borrow him for other newborn portrait sessions – he is a GREAT model!!
This evening I had the pleasure of sharing all the images from our session with Felicity, Alex and baby Alaric (who really seemed to enjoy the show!), so now I can share some of my favorite images from Alaric’s newborn session here on the blog.
