Hi I'm Michelle, a portrait photographers based out of Abbotsford BC Newborn- Family- Baby Photographer serving Abbotsford, Mission, Langley, Chilliwack, and the Fraser Valley » Mission, Abbotsford, Fraser Valley portrait photographer, specializing in authentic family and newborn photography

We’ve been visiting our friends the Anderson’s in Sunnyside WA. Brian has been covering a clinic here in Sunnyside while the owner is in Brazil for the World Cup.. Lucky guy. 

We’ve been loving our time here! The population in Sunnyside is 82.2%  Latino or Hispanic (according to Wikipedia), so Brian has been able to practice his spanish, and  I’ve been able to gorge myself on the best tacos around. It’s been awesome.

While we’ve been here I wanted to take the Anderson’s family portraits. We only had about 30 minutes, but we got some amazing shots.

My love for family portraits just keeps growing. I LOVE them..

I’ve been thinking of offering a “we’re moving back to BC” promotion.. That would mean a ton of $$ off of a session.. Who’s interested?

    Michelle Smid - I’m interested! Love this family so so much.ReplyCancel

so… I’m still pregnant.

40weeks

14 days longer then I’ve been pregnant before.

I’ve really been enjoying the last two weeks, I’ve been feeling like they are just bonus time to take in my little Imp

Park date? Library story time?  Bike Rides ? Or course!  So thankful that I’ve made it to full term, but now that my due date is tomorrow, I’m ready to meet this babe..

Baby Kimonos

Give me a break, can these be any cuter. We used them all the time with M! I loved the West Coast Baby kimonos, and was lucky enough to photograph some of their product when we had our first babe.  These were so easy to put on, no pulling anything over that cute little newborn head, and BONUS- they open so that you can have skin to skin every time you nurse

Not into being up all night with your snotty, poor, sick little baby? These are SO much better than the those gross bulb sucker things (have you seen the inside of one of those, gross)!

 

Phil and Ted double stroller kit

We bought this stroller when we first had the Imp, and to be perfectly honest it served us almost exclusively as  a “throw crap in it” accessory. It was so much easier to just throw M  in a wrap or carrier. But, we live downtown now, and we’re within walking distance of all the good stuff (restaurants, library, park, water, antique shops … you know, the essentials)  I have a feeling this summer we are going to need some extra room to “throw crap in” on our downtown adventures. 

Cloth Diapers

FlipCovers400x400432

We used cloth with M, and I loved not having to throw away all those diapers that are going to sit in a landfill forever. The only time M got diaper rash is when we used regular disposable diapers. No diapers left? Just throw on another load of laundry and listen to that hum of the dryer. I didn’t do a ton of research before we started, Apple cheeks were our pick and they worked our fabulously. But I think I’d prefer to use either Flip Diapers or Button Diaper this time around. Apple Cheeks are pocket diapers, and you need to change the cover more frequently. The flip and button diapers are just covers that you can reuse a few times and just change out the insert.

Here a good breakdown on cost of pockets vs flips

In all seriousness,  all this baby really needs is my boobs and some cloth diapers… But it is kinda fun to shop a little and get excited about another little imp joining our family.

now off I go.. Amazon and I have a date.

I can’t believe it, after weeks of being on watch for baby, I’m still pregnant!

39 weeks 2 days

Almost making it to my due date..

I know most people are super anxious to meet their baby, but I am in no rush at all!  I feel bad, it’s not that I’m not excited, but I’m just trying to enjoy what little time I have just me and the Imp. I’m finally more comfortable, she has moved a little so the constant ‘baby so low I can’t walk’ pressure has settled down.

The Imp and I have been going for walks, bike rides, library dates, napping together etc.

Brian took this the other night ( 39 weeks ) at the park across the street from us.

I need to be better about blogging. I’ve been keeping up with my project 365, but just haven’t gotten around to blogging anything. .. ooops
