I was thrilled when these two contacted me to photograph not only their bump, but their little beeb when she arrived. I’ve known Daddy for a very long time, since we were small kids, growing up in the bowling alley. Although, when I was younger I felt much older than he and his twin brother were, but now, as we’re older, we’re actually not that far apart! We continued through junior bowling and Daddy went on to college in the states and continued competitive bowling. Eventually he became part of the PBA (Pro Bowlers Association). (His list of accomplishments is ridiculous!). I remember learning of these two meeting and beginning their relationship, both being competitive bowlers and sharing the love for the sport. I had yet to meet Mama in person until the day of this shoot and she is just as sweet as I imagined! Her adorable little bump was just precious and I loved watching the look of love and excitement between these two.
A short time after this shoot and just a couple weeks before their princess’ birth, Daddy was crowned Canadian National Champion, citing phrases in articles and interviews like “The Best Bowler in the World, and he’s Canadian”.
As proud as we all are of him, his greatest accomplishment to date is marrying his beautiful wife and having their precious daughter! I couldn’t wait to meet her!
