Last month I photographed baby Violet, who is such an adorable chunky bit of sweetness! Her & her family have quite the story.
She was born as the fire was raging around Fort McMurray. Less than 24 hours after she was born, the hospital was evacuated. Her mom & dad spoke so highly of how smoothly things went & well looked after they were by the amazing doctors, nurses & other staff. They were on the bus for 7 hours for what would normally be a 2 hour drive. On their bus was the maternity ward, with new babies & a couple of moms in labour. They didn’t know where they were going & it wasn’t until they were embarking on the plane to leave, that they even knew that they would be flying to Edmonton.
This beautiful family lost their home, but thankfully, Grandma & Grandpa were visiting, so were able to take the family pets in their vehicle. The grace & acceptance that Violet’s mommy & daddy have of their situation were was truly touching & heartwarming. Absolutely nothing is taking away the joy of having their sweet baby girl in their arms. I felt blessed to be able to be able to share the gift of new photos with them as they begin their New Beginning in their journey through life. We wish you all the best!
