Just over a week ago my sister and brother-in-law brought their new little baby boy, Arlo Wolfe, into the world. My sister, Jolene, went into labour a week before her due date and we are so pleased that both mama and baby boy are happy and healthy.

Not only did I have the pleasure of snapping some photos of little Arlo at one week old, but I also had the absolute honour of being present and Arlo’s birth. I was so excited when I got the text that labour had started and I was going to be able to be present. With her labour falling on the weekend James was able to watch the kids and Evelyn and myself headed up to their home. The love and welcoming atmosphere of her home was abundant and I can understand fully why she prefers having a home birth. Jolene was present for the birth of Evelyn and it felt so right to be able to support and encourage her just like she did for me a few months before.

Little Arlo has a mighty powerful cry, he prefers to be snuggled up to mama and isn’t super fond of the camera… yet. I did manage to capture one little grin and it is just about the cutest thing.

Thank you Jolene and Benjamin for asking me to be a part of your sweet little baby’s birthday and also thank you for asking me to capture his little tiny features. Meet my newest nephew Arlo.

  • I’ve been trying to convince James that he needs his own “blog” Instagram account since he might be getting just a little bit more involved by the new year (starting with our holiday guide). I’ve almost got him convinced, it’s just choosing the handle that is the hard part. 😂 taking suggestions 👇🏻👇🏻 comment below something witty below... Keep in mind he has already declined “joyfuljames” (A little background of where CW & JW comes from, it’s mine and James’ initials)

  • Today’s slow moving, cozy feeling Saturday was just what I needed. Currently in bed with Sophie asleep beside me wondering if I should go to sleep or get my butt up and get some work done... decision decisions.
  • Have you heard the saying, "The Days are Long, but the Years are Short." Whelp, who's ready for the days to feel even longer with this cold draft called winter that just rolled in. I always find the days seem even longer when they are spent inside. With knowing that you are going to be spending more time inside it is important to think about the quality of air that you and your kids are breathing in. Fun Fact: Did you know that the air quality inside your home may be 5X worse than the air quality outside. Say What!? We've been improving our indoor air quality and warming up our bodies with the new Dyson Cool + Hot Link Air Purifier. Sharing more about this product (and why my Mom keeps saying she wants it for Christmas) on the blog. Click profile link.

  • As I was going to bed last night I was thinking about social media and how we don’t always “see the big picture”. I took this photo last night and went just close enough so that you couldn’t see the frying pan on the table and the fairy wings on the ground. While doing work I kinda thought maybe it was silly not to show the whole scene and didn’t post. This social media world is interesting, and showing highlights are definitely fun, but let’s remember they are just highlights. Behind everyone’s beautiful feed there is always a whole bunch of crazy, tiring, hard life going on. It just isn’t as easy to photograph and/or share. So here’s to trying to keep it real and if you swipe right you won’t see the frying pan but you will see the unedited version of this same photo. Crazy what a little brightening and filter can do. I guess what I’m trying to say and what I’ve noticed from my own experience is to be happy with what you are blessed with, don’t compare with what you see from others and always do what makes you happy.
