Alright so admittedly it has been awhile since I have posted something. life got busy and with busy comes procrastination. Although I do have one good reason for the delay and that is Mason. Mason was born on January 7th at 12:58PM. He weighed 8 lbs 4oz. As is always the case with the addition of any new child, life has been a whirlwind for the last three weeks! Kristin and I are so very excited and blessed by the safe arrival of our son and it is pure joy watching Madelyn hug him and try to “puppy kiss” (lick) him.
For you family and friends who are supporting us from out of town, here are some “never before seen on the internet” photos of Mason during the first few days of his life.
Last week we decided to take on Edmonton’s Annual Free Admission Day (#yegFAD)– the one day per year that all of the city’s major attractions are free. I hadn’t been to a zoo since I was a child, and since we have a child we thought Madelyn may enjoy seeing all of the animals.. we were right. we were even treated to Lucy the elephant up close as she was on a walk with her handlers. Free Admission Day, you rock! Thanks Edmonton.
While in Vancouver last month I grabbed breakfast and quick photo session with my brother, Robert. I had been thinking about taking photos of him for a while now and I was looking forward to capturing his personality and style. We took a walk down at the New Westminster quay and along the train tracks and I was able to snap some shots that I am proud of.
Hope you enjoy these, Rob.
Last month during our holidays we spent some time in Powell River, BC for my sister’s wedding (photos of wedding will be posted at Photography by JK later this month). While we were in town, we were fortunate enough to attend one of their annual celebrations: the Blackberry Festival. During the festival they close down their Main Street for one evening and all of the shops no venders have tables and booths on the street selling blackberry treats, jams, gelato, and cheesecakes. A fun little evening in a quaint town 🙂 Here are some photos
