Meet Noah Reid, first born of my close friends/extended family, Matt and Krista. I was honoured to be asked to do both the maternity shots and the newborn shots for baby Noah and we made the most of it. Since we planned in advance, we did a couple composite shots: a before and after, as well as a “posed on the hands” composite.
Noah James Reid was born to a family that is going to shower this kid with love. And if they ever need some of the slack picked up, I know our extended family is going to pile it on. Welcome to the world, Noah. You were loved before we even knew you.

The Dr. Seuss nursery of Noah. How many characters can you name?
Still one of my favourite shots to do at any maternity session: the double hearts over the belly.
Krista's pearl necklace and her baby belly.
I bought a black backdrop the night of this shoot, for this specific shot. I love how it turned out.
Daddy and the baby to be.

Matt said something funny, clearly.

Baby Noah! This kid is gonna break some hearts. Look how adorable he is!

And the obligatory shot for Matt: my daddy rocks.
