Vancouver Family Photographer - Growing into Toddlerhood

Remember those early years with kids? Long nights, and with sleep deprivation and general exhaustion, those days feel even longer. Co-sleeping, nightmares, teething, middle-of-the-night nursing, bloody fevers and colds. Will all of this end? Will I sleep a full night again?

Yes. Yes you will. And it will happen sooner than you think. Then you are left missing the moments where nursing your little ones is the magical solution to all that ails them. Or that a simple cuddle and kiss will take away the physical pain of a fall. Or a lullaby will calm them down.

Natalie and Diego, you are in the thick of this fog right now. Tired as you may be, you still find the energy to play with Noam, holding boundaries when he needs you to, and giving slack for him to take risks and fall and learn all the other times. In this home, you are showing him all that life means to you and I know, even at his tender age of 2, he is taking it all in. I love watching you two parent and hope to continue this project with you year after year! You’re the best!!
