The story of how WE met
Janelle (the beautiful mamma to be in these photos) and I go WAY back. Back to grade one at Beach Grove Elementary, here in Tsawwassen. She’d moved from Toronto and we became fast friends. She was bright, had a big imagination and was FUN. After one of our first play date, my Dad came to pick me up. He noticed a family photo sitting on the counter. He asked her Mom “Hey! How do you know Don?!”. My dad (who also is also from Ontario) had recognized one of his high school friends, which turned out to be Janelle’s Uncle.
This realization blew both of our 6 year old minds. We decided, since MY dad and HER uncle used to be friends, WE must be related.
The funny thing about this story? 25 years later, we still tell SO many people THIS story. Even if they want to hear it or not..
ABOUT THE MATERNITY SHOOT
Holy smokes I don’t think I have EVER been so cold taking photos. I was bundled to the max (scarf, boots, multiple layers) and I was FREEZING! SO you can imaging how cold Janelle must have been! In a dress, in December strutting her beautiful pregnant belly up and down Centennial Beach. She made the photos not look like winter, but a beautiful spring day! We had an absolute blast, as we always do :) If you scroll to the very end of the gallery you can see some behind the scene pics!
Janelle and Steve, the way you have chosen to live your lives with joy, music, adventure and love is such an inspiration to those around you. I can’t wait to come to Calgary and meet your little bundle of joy!
