This little sweetheart has been super anticipated by one of my oldest friends, Melissa. We’ve known each other since we were a year old — we met as neighbors and were super tight until she moved to Kelowna when I was about 12, and then I moved to the States a year and a bit later. We reconnected shortly after my return to Edmonton (super exciting she had moved back, too!) and the rest is history. :)
This little bundle knew how much everyone wanted to meet her, so Melissa and Joe proudly welcomed Scarlett Anne a month early this past April! Thankfully everyone is healthy and thriving.
I came over to hang out with Melissa and Scarlett just after Daddy had to get back to work — so I took some images of the two of them. I cannot even get over how teensy tiny S is in her mama’s hands! PS: She’s just recently doubled her birth weight (she was just over 4lb). Like, whoa! *insert wide eyed emoticon here*
I’m gonna share something different this time — this is the book Melissa ordered that I combined her maternity session and her lifestyle newborn photo session into, followed by the thank you cards/birth announcements she decided on. They are 5×7 cards printed at my professional lab on the softest, most beautiful matte paper that I have ever seen. (I am obsessed with this paper, it really adds another dimension to my art and like a good black and white, the paper helps convey the emotion in the pictures!) I love that so many people in Scarlett’s life will receive a keepsake with her adorable newness on it to have forever. And that SCARLETT will be able to look back at this beautiful book and she how much her mommy and daddy loved her…even before she was born.
