welcome, reid

Earlier this year, on Mother's Day, I excitedly arrived at the home of some of my best friends, Rozlyn and Kris. We were doing a quietly thrilling portrait session to celebrate a monumental event — they had just adopted a sweet baby, their first child. In honour of National Adoption Awareness Month, I thought it would be fun to share two shoots with this lovely family this week. Today I'm sharing baby Reid's arrival and tomorrow I'll post images taken a few months later with Rozlyn's extended family. First up, the new parents wanted a few images taken to commemorate this wonderful day in their lives, and also to share the announcement with family and friends near and far. It was an absolute joy to be able to document one of their first days as a family of three and help them spread the news. Congratulations to my dear friends!

From their official announcement (message and accompanying collage):

"Surprise! We adopted a beautiful baby boy. It is with much love that we welcome Reid."
