When Kai’s mom Patricia contacted me in March to do this shoot, I was so taken by her story. Yes, I know, it’s September… but it’s taken this long to actually finally meet up for Kai’s first photoshoot.

I suppose it was also “kind of” good planning to do the shoot now, because it’s a year since Pat left ICU. When she completed the booking form, she said that the photoshoot was booked as a celebration for them as a family. You see, Pat went into multiple organ failure after giving birth to Kai, and she spent two and a half months in hospital.

That must have been so so difficult for everyone!

I’m so glad we eventually got to do the shoot.

It was a celebration of life… and Kai’s first birthday!

I loved being a part of the magical connection that this family has. These are the kinds of photos I absolutely love taking.

Kai was so happy once we let him roam around on his own, he was so proud of himself walking around in the park, while his parents watched him explore.

You know what, it doesn’t matter when you do it, but the first photoshoot is always special 🙂 I had such an amazing time with this amazing family.
