Probodiak Family – Southampton Family Photographer

Port Elgin Family Photographer-1

I don’t have words for this one, but I’ll try my best. Six months ago Kris and Tina welcomed Sophia, and on Saturday I was lucky enough to spend a VERY windy morning with this beautiful family in their beloved Southampton. If you’ve met Kris and Tina then you know how completely fantastic they are. They’re instantly warm and kind and will put you right at ease. If you know them well, you know how extra special this session was. In 2014 Kris and Tina lost their son, Henry, at 23 weeks. You might have heard the term ‘rainbow baby’. In the loss community it’s a term that represents a baby that comes after a loss, just as after every storm there’s a rainbow. So Saturday morning, with Henry and rainbows very much on our minds, we went to the beach and loved and marveled over Sophia, the way you do when you’re holding a rainbow baby and know all that that means.

Every time I go out to work I take a breath and think for a minute about the value of what we’re about to create, and this year has been a heavy reminder of how special and important photographs are. When Tina got in touch about this session my heart fluttered, knowing how precious these early days together are, and what an honour it is to capture a few moments for them as a family.

Kris and Tina, I can’t thank you enough for sharing Henry and Sophia with me. You are both such incredible people, and I’m so grateful to have had this time with you. I loved loved loved watching you all together, and I hope you’ll cherish these. Thank you, all of you.
