Remember this maternity session? Well their little girl may have arrived a little later than expected but when I had the pleasure of meeting her on her 7th day she was an absolute dream. She was over 8lbs at birth but has the most delicate features which make her look so much smaller. Love her full head of hair and gorgeous eye lashes…such a cutie!


Congratulations Jackson family, your little girl is just beautiful!

  • Nicole Walker - Last year around about this time we did a photo session with you on Granville Island with my son and husband. At the time I was pregnant with our second child. We were expecting to have another boy but we were pleasantly surprised in November and had a girl. Right now she doesn’t have much hair and is the splitting image of my son Nathan when he was the same age. Nathan has proven to be such a lovely big brother to her and my daughter Natasha just loves him. As they grow older I hope that they become great friends!

  • renee sheard - I have these two amazing grandchildren and when we spend time together my 5 year old loves it when I tell her it’s picture day which means I take my camera and she does all these cute poses for me! We both love it and I have amazing pictures of her now if I could just get her 14 year old brother to be as excited about picture day as he is about helping me in the garden!

  • Robin Clarke - we love “fishy Kisses”

  • Robin Clarke - Liked and linked – fingers crossed! (3 out of 4 ain’t bad)

  • Corrina Winder - I have a daughter who’s currently 21 months and i’m pregnant with our second. When we told my daughter “Mommy has a baby in her belly” she started to say that SHE had a baby in her belly! And then, spilled the beans to our daycare provider by saying Mommy has baby in her belly. She likes to give the baby a kiss and i think will be a fantastic big sister come November.

  • Corrina Winder - Already ‘like ‘ you on Facebook (have for a while!) and also shared the link to your give away on my profile :)

  • Judy Moore - My son is 10 months old and is our little miracle. We are currently pregnant with our second and just know that Liam will be an amazing big brother this christmas. He just learnt how to smile for the camera. We call it the Chandler smile from Friends except he closes his eyes. Not a day goes by where that chandler smile doesn’t just melt my heart.

  • Adela Patoni - I have a 4 year old boy who loves dinosaurs and a 6 months old girl. My boy enjoy making his sister laughs! And is everywhere very proud showing her. My husband loves biking and my son also shares his passion. I’m very proud of my family.

  • Olivia Yue - I have two daughter’s, 2 years old and 3 months old. My older one is all lovin’ on her little sister, asking if she can give her kisses every day and wanting to give her big hugs all the time. Watching the two of them together amaze me.

    Already ‘like’ you on FB and just shared your link.

  • Shannon B - my kids are 5 and 7 and love to do yoga poses with me :)

  • Shannon B - liked and posted :)

  • Wanda E - I became a mother recently and my son is 7 weeks old already! He came into this world 3.5 weeks early and in such a hurry that within 10 minutes of arriving at the hospital and 3 contractions later, he was born. No time to even go to a prepped room nor for any drugs. We love him to bits and have been posting a photo a day for friends and families to see. Friends and families of friends are huge fans of him (some of whom we don’t even know) as we witnessed at a recent wedding we attended. We are so blessed =)

  • Lindsey MacInnes - I have 2 year old boy/girl twins. They are really active and love to run and play at the playground. They are interested because they don’t look like twins at all. My son has blonde hair, blue eyes, and my daughter has brown hair and green eyes.

  • Lindsey MacInnes - Also “liked” your page. If you’re interested you can “like” our page too: Concordia Counselling Services.

  • bethan stewart - My boys are 3 and 6- they sure are growing up! In my 6 year old, I see snippets of a very little boy but also glimpses of who he may be as a grown man. I would love to celebrate who they are right now in their lives and who we are as a family. Love your work!

  • Elizabeth Mann - I have an 11 month old boy who loves music. He loves music toys and will dance to anything with a beat, even the dishwasher or another baby crying!

  • Elizabeth Mann - I “liked” your page on FB :)

  • Brenda - We are a family of 3 boys, ages 6, 4 and 2 months. Tyler (6 year old) LOVES hockey, especially the Canucks. When asked what he likes about hockey, his reply – “The numbers”. It is all about the statistics for him. Miles (4 year old) has been rooting for the opposing team to the Canucks all playoffs because he wants hockey to end so his parents and brother will play with him. But for the finals, he says he’s rooting for the Canucks because it doesn’t matter who wins – hockey will be over and he will have his parents/brother back for some playtime. Last but not least, Jackson (2 months) LOVES his mobile above his crib. It plays music and when the music ends, he’ll squeak to let us know to turn it back on.

  • Brenda - I “liked” your FB page.

  • Brenda - I posted a link on my fb wall with your give away information.
