darcy & jesse | whitehorse maternity photographer

Wow. It seems like all I've been doing lately is photographing newborns and maternity, newborns and more maternity! There is one heck of a baby-boom happening in Whitehorse right now. I can imagine the nursing staff at Whitehorse General are run off their feet!

A short while ago, I had the privilege of photographing this wonderful couple. Meet Darcy & Jesse. They are the greatest, most laid-back couple ever. We had a total blast shooting in their incredibly bright & cheery home (except for the attack of the killer bees incident - yay for Jesse, who came to our rescue!)

Darcy & Jesse are expecting their first baby TOMORROW!! I don't know if he/she is going to be on time or not but I *can* tell you that these guys have invited me to join them on their birth experience to document the story in photos. I can't even tell you how excited I am. I have wanted to photograph births since starting this business and these guys get to be my first family! Lucky me!
And of course, having such good looking parents pretty much guarantees a beautiful baby! And while it's not for me to spill the beans, the baby names that these guys have selected are incredible. Just for the record, I hope they get to use their boy name because it's just that awesome. And no, it's not Megatron, although that *would* be cool!

And seriously, this woman is all belly. You can't even tell she's pregnant if you see her from behind. Darcy says the waddle is a dead giveaway though!

And just between you and me, I think Jesse is pretty darn excited to meet his new little person.

C'mon little babe! Everyone's waiting to meet you. I know I, for one am not straying very far from the phone... that's definitely one phone call I don't want to miss!
