Vancouver Maternity Photographer | A Two and a Half Christmas
I’ve been hankering to do a storytelling session at the Christmas tree farm. So when Sylvia and Dan suggested a maternity session at Oh Christmas Tree farm in Langley, I knew this would be a fun session to do!
These two lovebirds had a relatively short courtship and got engaged within their first year of meeting each other. They both come from big families so when this pregnancy was confirmed, it is something to celebrate for them. They decided to wait patiently and do the gender reveal at birth and instead, have focused on enjoying time with each other before baby arrives.
Picking out a tree has been a tradition between Sylvia and Dan since they have been together. It’s gotta be the perfect one, base not too wide, height not too tall, needles not too thin. We wandered around the farm, spotting for “the one” and laughing about the quirky varieties that are out there. This was my first time at a tree farm, so I was wide-eyed and taking in the magic of finding the right tree. They remarked that it’s a good thing they brought Dan’s truck this year, as last year’s adventure in Sylvia’s car was like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole.
After a while, Sylvia passed this one tree, and as she looked it up and down, Dan was on the other side, doing the same. Then they observed a little offshoot growing from the side, like a little tree from the main trunk. That’s the one, perfectly representative of this stage of life they are experiencing together. There is a “half” of a tree, much like there are two and a half of them here carrying out this Christmas tradition of theirs.
A few quick saws and the tree came down with ease and onto the wagon. We then spent a bit of time in the trees and the sun started to peek out. The raindrops glistening on the needles while the fog lifted. Christmas magic is present indeed :). Here are some of my favourites of our time together. Sylvia and Dan, thank you for being so fantastic about going along with my ideas and bringing a few of your own fun(ny) ones too! Can’t wait to meet your little one soon!
