When you're a photographer who specializes in newborn and baby photos, it is even more exciting for you when your best friend has a baby.
Meet Calder Frank. Born October 10, 2017. His family, very, very good friends of mine, traveled to Red Deer a few days after his birth for his very first newborn photo session. He was a complete delight to photograph in my Red Deer photo studio
Calder was born with club foot, which has now been surgically correcting (a series of casting over the course of several weeks, followed by a tenotomy, where his heel cord was clipped) and now he wears a cute little pair of booties with a bar in between then to keep his foot in the correct position. He'll wear the boots and bar for the next 4 years. He was very responsive to the procedures and his parents are hopeful there will not be any setbacks.
Calder's mama wanted to be sure I captured the newness of his little foot before his treatment began and I was more than happy to oblige. There is not much sweeter than teeny, tiny baby feet and it was especially important to capture Calder's foot so his challenges will never be forgotten.
I hope you all have had a wonderful holiday season in beautiful Central Alberta (and anywhere else you may be reading from).
