This sweet family has become one of the highlights of my career. I became especially close to these new parents, who at the time were just smitten kittens, when they did their laundry, undies and all, in front of me at their engagement shoot. I mean, really, undies are quite the bonding experience – it’s like next step territory.
Then, they brought me to Montreal, where they shared the very special day of their wedding with me. It was a colourful love fest complete with an epic (and totally awesome) bridal party. They all piled out of a bus in record timing to stand in the middle of a main road and simultaneously threw their umbrellas when the rain stopped for a 5.6 seconds burst of photos in between rain spells and then later, dropped trow and ate sprinkled donuts. And, well, friends are the company you keep, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Ashley & Jeff are quite the special pair.
Then, a new furry addition was added to the family. Their dog, Knight, the sweetest Australian Shepperd, moved into their happy home. But, soon enough Knight was told that he was going to be a big furry brother and then came the baby.
Chloe Summer. Born August, the month of their marriage, the month they met, the month all the love started.
And now, Ashley, Jeff, Knight plus Chloe equals perfection and I couldn’t be happier for these sweet beings. I am so touched I’ve been able to document all these chapters of your lives. I feel truly honoured. All my love, mean it xo.
PS. I cannot believe we caught Chloe’s first smile ever in a photograph. That moment might go down as best ever. Definitely had to start off the post with it. Oh my.. what a smile!
