This month I want to write to you about our family. There are so many wonderful traits that I see both your daddy and I have passed on to you. You are playful and cuddly and a constant joker/performer just like your daddy. But more importantly, you are loyal and honest, just like him too. You have his same nurturing spirit and I am proud that you have such a wonderful role model to teach you how to cook, clean up around the house and care for others like he does. One day you’ll read this when you’re all grown up, and I may or may not have the same wonderful, glowing compliments to say about your dad (you know, depending on the day, and the status of the laundry and dishes). But I want you to know that despite our ups and downs, your daddy and I love each other very much, and I am so very proud of the precious traits and lessons he is passing on to you.
You are also a dreamer and a feeler, which means you are full of both a fantastic imagination as well as the occasional sense of overwhelming emotion and anxiety. You are so lovably quirky and full of big ideas, but sometimes the world is still just too big for you to swallow and so you continue to turn to your beloved pacifiers, “Old Bluey” and “Old Greeny” and your favorite lovey…my “squishy elbow”. 🙂 As a therapist’s son, you are the only two year old I know who is able to state “I feel a little bit nervous right now”, and even though I wish the world didn’t have to be such a stressful place for all of us some days, I am thankful that you are able to express your emotions so clearly at such a young age.
Every day I tell myself, “It can’t possibly get any more fun than this stage Theo is at right now!” and then every next day you go right ahead and prove me wrong! 🙂 I love seeing the world through your eyes, and I hope that I am doing it at least a little bit of justice from behind this camera lens!
Each month, I join a small group of other talented photographer moms to write a letter to our sons. Please keep reading through this blog circle by visiting Abbotsford Lifestyle Photographer, Candice Victoria Photography.
My new site is up and running! This has truly been a labor of love to put together…special thanks to my awesome web-savvy husband who designed the new layout and also to my top secret logo designer for all the awesome work on my new branding! You two have both worked so hard to help me out and I can’t wait until BOTH of you are ready to start accepting new clients so I can continue to help you grow your businesses! <3
Feel free to look around the new site and leave some love! I’ve added a ton of new galleries to check out! Also keep an eye out for more updates in the next few weeks, with my entire Welcome Guide going online as well as a special password-protected page for clients only! 🙂 Thanks for all of your support and I look forward to working with more of you in this New Year! 🙂
This month I want you to remember all of the fun we like to have when we’re together. Just like your mommy and daddy, you are growing up to love cracking jokes and “performing” for your adoring audience. One thing I never understood before I was a parent is how utterly surprising every new day with you can be. I feel like I can never soak up enough of your personality…every new day spent with you is such a pleasant surprise to find out what your creative little brain will come up with next! Today, I just want to post some pictures to remind you of how much laughter filled our days when you were 2.5 years old. So here goes…
I love you SOOOOOOO MUCH,
