Oh my, 2013 is here!!   HAPPY NEW YEAR!  We wish everyone twelve months of love, happiness, health and of course, memories!!

My first post of the year couldn’t be more special.  I first met this family maybe two years ago. Dana is the founder of GirlPower, a friendship program that inspires tween girls to feel empowered, develop a strong sense of self, and love themselves while learning to manage the most important thing to them… their friendships.   Dana and her team of facilitators are absolutely fabulous and teach both the girls and their parents how to manage the many important things going on in this stage of our daughters’ lives.  Since we have known each other we have supported and encouraged each other and I couldn’t be more proud of a fellow entrepreneur and all she has done to fulfill her passion.

Dana and her husband have an incredibly sweet and adorable boy who just melts your heart.   And now they are welcoming their new baby girl into their family!  So what a treat for me to capture the love of this family at their home with their December newborn.   There is also another winter celebration… today is Dana’s birthday!   So I thought this post with images of all of her sweeties would be a perfect way to say Happy Birthday to a very lovely person.

My favourite moment from this shoot was when everyone was cuddled on the bed playing “Make a Story”.   Their little boy would finish the sentences mom and dad started… about diggers and construction sites, of course!   It just reminded me of what it is to be a family of four.  Expanding the love for your first born and your newest cuddle as far as the moon and stars will take you…and that’s pretty darn far.

All my love to your beautiful family, Dana.  I loved spending the afternoon with you all!
