Today I had the pleasure of meeting little Aurora and her family all the way from Bella Coola!
I’ve learned that in many small communities of BC and you are awaiting the arrival of a baby, you have to leave town and stay in the nearest city that can accommodate delivering babies!! So, as scheduled, this family packed up to head into Vancouver and stay with family until baby arrives. They were all ready to go; house cleaned, car packed, baby gear in tow…. and got about 600km on their way here, when little Aurora decided to come early! Mom’s water broke just as they were in Williams Lake – good thing they can deliver there!! Back up plan – Daddy would have to do it (with coaching from Dr. Mom!)
After a few days they continued on their travels and made it to the Lower Mainland.
I was excited to still be able to capture some of her first few days!! Thank you all for making it to my studio this morning!
