Vancouver Maternity Photographer | A Blessingway for Baby Lemon

It is not often I get to work with my dream client.

I knew this beautiful mother-to-be is just that when she told me that her work is about brand mythology and storytelling.

She explained that she works with companies and pulls their essence together to develop their team's brand. To me, she's making magic for those companies, by helping them recognize their authenticity and re-inspiring them with all the key ingredients that make up the heart and soul of their work.

So when she asked me to document her journey to motherhood and early days of parenthood, she created BIG magic for me. She understood my passion for storytelling and honoured me by trusting me to document her journey to motherhood. It's a dream come true to collaborate with storytellers.

This is the story of a blessingway for Megan and Baby Lemon - an incredible celebration of reflection, love, and hope with her beloved community of family and friends. It is story filled with song, prayers, and blessings, pulling in elements of water, earth, fire, and air. As I photographed these women and their sharing of incredibly thoughtful gifts and words, I could feel their strength permeate Baby Lemon's room and into their home. It left me empowered, so I can only image the gift that was bestowed upon Megan and her baby.

This is her prayer for her little love, whom she holds so dearly within her.

A Prayer for One Who Comes to Choose This Life by Danelia Wild

May she know the welcome of open arms and hearts May she know she is loved by many and by one May she know the circle of friendship that gives and receives love in all its forms May she know and be known in the heart of another May she know the heart that is this earth reach for the stars and call it home And in the end may she find everything in her heart and her heart in everything

Megan and Johan, I cannot wait to capture the next chapter that is your birth story, where Baby Lemon will leave you forever changed when you realize the magnitude of your love for her the moment you meet her.
