This morning I made my way to Kitchener to take some photos of 7 week old Brody. While I wouldn’t say I know Kitchener well, it’s not entirely foreign to me. I have 3 brothers, and we all went to Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo. While I moved back to Burlington, my brothers all remained in the Kitchener area, so I visit fairly often.
Back when I was in university, some of the best memories I have come from the ball hockey I played with a bunch of friends every Tuesday night at the Laurier tennis courts. We would play rain, snow or shine, and it seemed that it always rained or snowed. It was via ball hockey that I met Brody’s father Andy. I always played goalie in ball hockey and Andy’s quick hands probably beat me more often than not when on the opposing team. So when Andy contacted me about taking photos of his newborn son Brody, I was more than happy to do so. Now, you may notice from some of the photos below that Andy is a HUGE Buffalo Sabres fan. I’ve never known a bigger Sabres fan, much the same way I’m a Penguins fan. So we found it quite ironic that we chose today for the session as our 2 teams were playing eachother in Buffalo. Regardless of the outcome of the game, I had a great time taking photos of Brody and catching up with Andy and meeting his lovely fiancée Nat.
Here are a few photos from earlier today.
I wish I could fall asleep anywhere like thisWe had Dad’s help getting Brody to smile.Something a little different, this photo is taken through a lens which was handheld in front of the camera.Brody decided he was done with photos for the day and it was time to rest with Mom.
