Lifestyle Newborn Photography · The Grimard’s Tiny Home · Deroche, B.C.
When a fellow photographer wants newborn photographs taken in the tiny home her and her husband built, you say yes.
Dori and her family live in the small community of Deroche, British Columbia (I hadn’t heard of it either). This quiet neighborhood is located at the base of the mountains just outside of Abbotsford and Chilliwack and is the perfect place to build a tiny home and raise a family. Dori and her husband Justin embody what it means to live simply and slowly. They enjoy a quiet life spending time with each other, playing music, and planning their future. Justin and Dori explained that they plan to build another home so that they can one day adopt more children. In the meantime, they are living out the dream of having a tiny home. They wanted photographs to tell the story of their life at this point in time: a husband, a wife, a toddler, and now a newborn, all in one tiny home.
Earlier this month, Dori, Justin, and Jaipheth welcomed to the world the newest member of their family: Amaziah. At only a few weeks old, Amaziah already has a calm and observant personality. He seemed content to just be held and seemed peaceful in his mother’s arms. I don’t think he stopped happy baby babbling the whole time. Dori shared with me that she knew right away when her oldest son, Jaipheth, was born that he would be a busy and curious body. She said that she could see her own personality as well as her husband’s expressed in their sons.
It was a beautiful, sunny, early Spring kind of day and it was wonderful getting to know the Grimard’s and experiencing their tiny home. Plus, I will never say no to newborn baby cuddles.
