It has truly been such a pleasure going through all of the photos and editing this past month — especially with smiles like these that warm your heart ! ❤️ All of our packages are scheduled to be ready by the end of the month !! I will share more from C’s preschool experience in my stories. ( @dnicole29 )These images are the same as what you would get in a digital download, printed for a portfolio or in his case added to a coffee table book.
This custom crayon alphabet made with love by @rainbowbabycolours is sitting proudly in my studio — almost too pretty to use!!! . . . I am sharing this amazing new company “Rainbow Baby Colour Creations” by a woman I admire, @kathleen_rose and her son who I got to know and love here at TransformEd Creative Studio and Learning Centre. . . . See you never forget the people who support your business when you’re first starting out… That they believed in you when perhaps you didn’t even know if it could evolve into something more. I say this, because, Kathleen was that for me, as were so many other families in the Vaughan community who came out to register for my studio programs. Even though she didn’t have to, she purchased gift certificates for family members, referred her friends, all of whom later signed up too. There is no better compliment than this kind of belief in your service!!! . . . Kathleen thank you for supporting my dream of TransformEd. I hope that I can help spread the word of your wonderful new products and encourage you, as a momtrepreneur to keep dreaming BIG! . . . Check out some more photographs in my stories for your next birthday gift or lootbags! Everything is non-toxic, can be customized, and above all is not only useful but educational too!
Rays of light and reflections. Found this gem 💎 during my birthday walk down memory lane of Baby Sebby. I remember I needed to monitor this mirror very carefully at the time, because it was a real one... Thankfully now I found shatterproof acrylic ones for the studio that work just as well!! I’m going to share those in another post.
Today the birthday boy (Sebby who is now 4 years - 9 months in the pictures) said “‘Mama don’t cry because I’m bigger. I can be little for you. And when I grow up to be older I will buy you something okay?!” 😢 #myheart 💙 Thank you everyone for your sweet birthday wishes! Sebby was the first infant to inspire my work in The TransformEd Creative Studio and Learning Centre.
And just like that, I blinked 👀 and my baby boy turned 4! Today is about you my sweet Sebby Dee. 🧿 Everything else can wait... #sweetsebastiandean #mybabyturnedfour #lightingspeed 🌩 ⚡️To new parents/future parents: Take photos and videos at any opportunity you can. You will never regret the time or the investment in them. Because of my line of work, my children and I do many Photoshoots and I try to document their studio learning if/when possible and it’s still not enough (for me) !!! Honestly it’s the only way I can wrap up everything we experience into a time capsule that I can treasure and look back upon years to come... I wish I had taken more and have spent the last week going through newborn/infant, toddler, preschooler and almost Kindergartener photographs/video clips. Posted ten in my stories like a little album — some with professional photographers, my own captures or from family members. All equally beautiful! 💙 Life got a whole lot sweeter on January 20th, 2016 and while most consider this to be “blue Monday,” it will always remain one of the happiest days of my life... (PC: @lauraclarkephotos) Today I also celebrate being born as a Mama and all the love and effort we have poured into our son over the last four years. 💙
Four years ago on this night, I arrived at the hospital and thought I had everything prepared to meet our first baby. Little did I know that nothing could/would ever prepare me for this adventure of parenthood. While I kissed my boy goodnight for the last time as a three year old, I did what I’ve done every other eve of his birthday — I held him tight, said I loved him, and cried. Happy and sad tears. Happy because I’m so proud of him and lucky enough to be his Mama and sad because I always wish I could do and be more for him. I’m trying not to feel mom guilt, but I do. These moments are just slipping through my fingers and I wasn’t prepared for the roller coaster ride of emotions!! My heart has grown immeasurably, and I sincerely hope I have the strength/good health to see him through each of life’s milestones... For now, I’m just laying here beside him quietly listening to his every sound and taking in this special time. How will I wake up to a four year old tomorrow? Decorating his nursery for his arrival home felt like just yesterday... And yet in many ways I don’t remember life without him !!! My baby. Always. 😭
Sebby: I want to marry you one day! . . Me: Why am I the lucky girl? . . Sebby: Because you’re the girl I love the most in the world! You look pretty with all the nice dresses. . . He said this to me yesterday — my sweet threenager is already such a little charmer! You have my heart sweet boy! ❤️ (Truth be told I love to dress up and do have many dresses 👗 👗 ☺️ ☺️ 🙈🙈 — He notices everything and I never even realized...)
Being a teacher is a gift. 🎁 While processing our photography packages, I am reminded of all the special moments shared in The TransformEd Creative Studio and Learning Centre. It reaffirms for me that I am right where I was meant to be, doing what I love most — teaching young children!
