Blair is basically a superhuman and deserves a gold medal. She rocks a hard hat on the construction site and Gucci shoes on her days off. She kills it at the gym but still knows how to pound back an entire bag of M&M’s. She’s educated herself in everything from music therapy to engineering and has now added three new letters to her name M-O-M. She’s someone we all love and admire. She’s found herself an equally as incredible partner, Dave who co-owns a business with her and is the greatest dad to boot. Together, they’re the dream-team and Harold is the luckiest baby around!
Not only did Blair & Arica (one of our lead wedding photographers) grow up together, but we also photographed her and Dave’s engagement and wedding a few years ago. They’ve belonged to the Manifesto Family for years, and we were so excited to photograph the next milestone in their journey together. We’re probably a little biased, but baby Harold is as perfect as they come. His nursey was grey and white, with a lit up ‘Twinkle’ sign above his crib, adding warmth to the room. Two shelves hung on the wall beside his crib, holding books waiting to be read and a rattle handmade by Blair’s brother, with the letter ‘H’ etched into it. Light brown hair covered his head, and he had dark blue eyes, and a tiny perfect nose and lips. He was content and happy as can be as we photographed the new family of three, snuggled up on the family bed, Harold’s whole hand grasping onto dad’s finger the entire time.
We get to meet people and celebrate with them in the best moments of their lives – engagements, weddings, births and family milestones, and we are so, so grateful! Blair & Dave, thank you for continuing to welcome us into yours. God bless your beautiful family.

A REVIEW FROM THE FAMILY
“Kristle was so amazing to work with. When you have a newborn, you have all of these anxieties that he will cry the entire time but she was wonderful with our son. Having a background in Early Childhood Education, you could tell Kristle was comfortable with newborns/ babies and could “shush” with the best of them. She even brought us our favourite coffee from Anchor Coffee House. What a treat! We are just in awe of the beautiful photos that we will cherish forever.” – Blair & Dave
