I am lucky enough to have transitioned with a lot of my clients…from weddings to babies, but in this case it was my husband who met this lovely couple first. Ayli was a “Paperback Bride” and I remember hearing about her and her husband a lot the year Chris and the boys filmed their wedding…she was one of their super fans….so when her name started popping up on my Facebook page in likes and comments I knew who she was immediately. Every now and then Chris would run into her downtown and he would tell me “I saw Ayli today, she asked about you…she LOVES your work!” When I saw her name pop up in my email inbox one day this spring I was SO excited! She was emailing me nice and early to make sure I could fit her in for Bump photos in the fall and photos of their wee one in the New Year! Even if I didn’t have time, I was so flattered that she emailed me before they had shared their news with the public that I would have made time 😉
So the day finally came and Ayli and Phil showed up with a vehicle full of pillows and blankets, all of their favourite baby books and of course some Starbucks! Even though we had never met before it felt like I was working with old friends! This couple is SO sweet! Ayli has one of those infectiously happy personalities and Phil is such a doting husband. You can just see the love between these two when they look at each other!
We chatted a lot during the session…poor Phil was shivering as Ayli and I gabbed away! I can’t wait to see them with their little Buster in his carefully planned out nursery with the theme of children’s books and a great big mural from The Giving Tree. These two are going to be fabulous parents!
