I first met Rachel and her beautiful daughter Natalie as a Kelowna Photographer when she was about 6 months old.
Little Natalie had a rather unconventional birth story. At 24.2 weeks pregnant, Rachel went into labour. A labour that quickly got her air ambulance to Vancouver where her team of doctors desperately tried to stop little Natalie from being born.
Apparently little Natalie had different plans. She wanted to meet her mommy and daddy so badly that she just couldn’t wait any longer.
Spending 105 days in Vancouvers incredible Woman’s Hospital NICU and Kelowna’s, NICU for 28 days; this little champion defied everyone’s expectations for her.
I was recently telling another client about Natalie as an inspirational story for her own pregnancy as they are worried their little one may come early. She was so encouraged by Natalie’s amazing story. She’s a little super hero!
It was so lovely to meet big brother Ryan, big sister Brittany and grandma!
It’s wonderful that her second birthday could be planned around the September long weekend. So many people love this little girl and to have them all there for family portraits is so special. Seeing the birthday party photos on Facebook it looks like she had so much fun!
Luckily she didn’t use all her energy up for her party the day before and she was super happy to get some beautiful portraits with her family. The song, Baby Shark, is still a favourite among so many of my clients and along with Ryan playing peek a boo with her, brought lots of smiles.
Natalie; Santa and I can’t wait to see you soon for our Santa Portraits in November. He and I will love seeing your super cute smile again!
