I have had the pleasure of knowing Braden & Joanna for quite some time. We have shared in some very special milestones in their journey- my husband, Cam, had the pleasure of performing their marriage ceremony. I’ve also had the pleasure of doing family photographs for Joanna’s extended family, allowing us to keep in touch and catch up along the way. And now, I was delighted that I was able to photograph them as they begin another leg of their walk together: the journey into parenthood.
I got to spend some time with Braden & Joanna and their newest addition, Connor. He is absolutely precious! There is nothing quite like that new baby smell- so intoxicating! Though we had the temperature cranked up, and kept his tummy full, Connor proved our theory correct that kids somehow arrive on the scene, all cute and cuddly, but know that they still somehow wield all the power… Connor decided we were far too interesting to sleep, so he would rather be awake to see what was happening the whole time. That was perfectly fine with me, as I got to witness such tender moments spent with mom and dad soothing their little boy!
Connor, you have such an amazing family who loves you so dearly! I have no doubt that you will grow up in a home full of love, laughter, and joy. Braden & Joanna, congratulations again on your amazing son! You will be such wonderful parents, and I can’t wait to see as Connor grows with your wisdom and guidance. Blessings on you as you spend your first family Christmas together!
