Rise and Shine with Maya

This past summer I travelled to Denver to partake in a photo retreat and on the way home met this wonderful little family waiting for my connecting flight from Chicago back home to Toronto. Right away I was drawn to this beautiful baby girl and her lovely parents, Leah and Eric, waiting in the terminal. After getting to know them better, I was thrilled to get an email from them inviting me to come and document a typical morning for their family.  I arrived just as Maya was waking up in the morning and while mom was getting changed, Maya had a little playtime with daddy. When it was time for breakfast it made me laugh to see the big bites mom was taking while trying to feed both herself and Maya at the same time J After Maya was fed and changed, mom and dad put her down for a nap, and while baby napped, out came the Super Nintendo! While Leah and I bonded over our “button mashing” skills during a match of Street Fighter, Maya soon woke up (I think she knew she was missing all the fun). To end the morning we took a little walk; while the intention was to go to the park, Maya was too cozy snuggled up with her favourite stuffed bear and had a nice little nap. I truly LOVED spending my morning with this awesome family and look forward to capturing more of Maya’s moments growing up along with all the love her awesome parents continue to shower her with.
