We all have at least one person in our lives that we feel we’ve known forever — Chelsea is that one for me. I met her through a Victoria photographer Facebook group a few months before I even moved to Vancouver Island, and by the time we met in person it was almost like old times! Meet, Chelsea ( of Chelsea Warren Photography — she’s a amazing, definitely go check her out!) and her adorable little family. I could not be more excited to meet their new addition, literally any day now! Charlie is going to make the best big brother and I’m so happy to see how their family dynamic changes — mixed emotions as their first baby is no longer their littlest babe (a challenge every parent goes through), but what a journey to becoming a family of four and welcoming the newest Warren to the clan.
This session almost didn’t happen and I’m so happy it did. When she first told me she was pregnant, I remember the day like it was yesterday! We were both so excited and were already starting to talk about planning her maternity session! Life got busy, as we both have toddlers. Whenever one was free the other was not. When we were both free it was pouring like crazy or someone got sick. This session almost didn’t happen but worked out just in the nick of time. Although it was a chilly 2 degrees and windy as heck at Thetis Lake (just a short drive from Victoria), we made it happen. Chelsea, I’m so happy to call you my friend. I am so happy for you, David and Charlie. I am so excited for my next call from you <3. p.s. I tried these fun little “cinemagraphs” for the first time — enjoy!
