It has been a while since I have been active all due to the fact that we welcomed our baby boy in early May! Becoming a first time mother has become the most rewarding job of all. I always knew mothers were all amazing, but I did not realize the extent of how AMAZING they truly are until you become one yourself. It is the most difficult job ever but is also the most rewarding and important job of all.
Prior to baby Lau’s arrival, we had completed our maternity photo shoot with Bruna from www.simplylacephotography.ca. She has become a dear friend and without a doubt she had to photograph such an important part of our lives! We had our photo shoot at Spencer Smith Park in Burlington with the cherry blossoms at the end of April and honestly, it was so HEAVENLY. You may be wondering how on earth we were able to get any shots in with hundreds of people coming out to enjoy the blossoms?! We were very fortunate that on the evening we planned for the shoot, there was a thunderstorm and heavy rain was pouring right before our arrival. We were so disappointed on our way there with all the rain. However, by the time we arrived to the park, not a soul was in sight except our photographer who was scouting the site and we also got to see a double rainbow! The rain was a blessing in disguise! Our photos turned out to be the most romantic and gorgeous ever; some of the cherry blossom petals had fallen to the ground due to the rain and decorated our pathway to our heavenly shoot. A huge shout-out to Le (IG: @winsdesign) for creating my maternity dress (her first!). She used my inspiration and created this beauty of a dress I always knew she was amazing! Also a shout-out to Monica (www.monicamakeupartist.com) for my beautiful MUAH; honestly she made me feel SO pretty after being pregnant for the past 9 months!
