Jackie was our first Bride-turned-Maternity, which was such an honour to not only photograph her maternity session with Tyler and their happy pups, but to meet their handsome man for a newborn session, too! What a good boy he was for his shoot even when we squeezed him into his teeny-tiny newborn outfits!
We had photographed Jackie and Tyler's wedding nearly one year ago to the day she was due. It was an amazing Waterton wedding. We just knew from that day these two would make excellent parents, so news that they were expecting was such a welcome surprise! This little nugget is going to be blessed with so many people who will love him dearly. We jumped at the chance to be apart of this momentous occasion.
So although the forest fires in BC and Saskatchewan this past summer had filled the skies in Medicine Hat with thick smoke, the results in these photographs from that evening was a rare opportunity. You could barely see the red rock coulees through the haze in Echo Dale and the beautiful setting sun burned red through the dusty sky. There was also a huge windstorm just weeks before that claimed numerous trees in the park, but the pile of chopped wood was laid out in a perfect juxtaposition for their session.
Even more perfect, was their baby boy! Below is just a couple shots from his newborn session that we thought we would share, as well.
