If you want to see a baby smile for an hour consecutively, take them to the Abbotsford Tulip Festival!
I was awake at 3:45am and on the road, leaving Tsawwassen at 4:15am to make it for a sunrise photo shoot at Bloom - Abbotsford Tulip Festival. When I arrived, the sky was a soft blue with the sunlight slowly creeping up over the mountains. I’d never been to the tulip fields before and oh wow, was it a sight to see! Endless rows of tulips spread out over endless farm land.
I met up with Natalie just before sunrise for our photo session. Natalie is an accomplished Canadian TV personality and Momma to her beautiful baby boy Pierce. If I thought I deserved a pat on the back for waking up early, this girl deserves a trophy! She looked AMAZING, arrived earlier than me to tend to her babies needs and was all smiles. The. Whole. Time!
We spent the next hour playing in the tulip fields while taking photos. Pierce was so happy to be surrounded by the colors, smells and cuddling with his mom. Natalie was a dream to photograph and her Wilfred dress choice such a perfect choice for the delicate flowers. There were only a few other people out in the fields at this time, but we had a whole bunch of cows meters away checking out our situation.
As a family photographer, I’m SO passionate about taking photos of motherhood. I’m also am passionate about working mothers who are finding a balance pursuing a career they love, while being a rockstar moms. And Natalie is TOTALLY one of those ladies, finding the balance between the two!
I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I LOVED taking them :)
