I’m posting between scratching my mosquito bites that I have gotten during my outdoor sessions this week, they are BAD RIGHT NOW! I thought I would share a couple cute ones from one of those aforementioned sessions, just a sneak peek for now!

It was worth a few bug bites to get these… I couldn’t help but smile when I saw these ones of Audrey, oh my goodness, she is ADORABLE!

I promise to share more soon, I have a lot of favorites from this session.

Just popping in to share a sneak peek from a recent maternity session… I really enjoyed working with this gorgeous mom during our session and I can’t wait to meet her sweet little baby and do his newborn photos!

Can’t believe it…

I can not ever remember another year going by this fast.

My little baby, the precious little newborn I just brought home from the hospital is suddenly turning one.

It’s a lot to celebrate, not only is it exciting that the little guy is one, but it’s exciting that we made it through our first year as parents, our first year as a family. A year full of a lot of fun, laughter, sleepless nights, endless smiles, coos, crying, diapers, laundry, firsts, and especially love.

I wanted to try and get a few cute images to use for the first birthday invitation… of course I left it until almost the last minute and only got a few good minutes of cooperation but I think it was a success!

In true Southern Alberta style it was windy on the day I wanted to do this… and helium balloons only last a matter of hours so we had to just go with it… oh well it just adds to the cuteness.

Here are few favorite images from a recent newborn session. Little Daxton was such a perfect newborn model. He slept through our whole session and I was able to do lots of fun things with him… the most surprising thing is he was already 1 month old (usually babies don’t sleep this soundly while being posed and moved around past the 2 week mark). So I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised!

here’s one with his beautiful mama… one of the coolest things about this newborn session was that I learned that babies can sleep with their eyes open… I have never seen that before but Daxton did it a lot! There were quite a few times where I thought for sure that he was awake but he was fast asleep… you can sort of see it in this image with his mom, he isn’t awake I swear!

Well as my faithful blog readers have pointed out to me, it’s been awhile since I updated the blog, and I have a very good reason for that, I have been enjoying the summer with my baby! I realized all of a sudden that he is going to be a year old before I know it, and this is his first summer and it is going by way too fast! So I decided to take the month of July off.

Speaking of being almost one, I thought I would share a couple fun photos. One of the best decisions I made after my son’s birth was to join a mommy/baby group. It was so wonderful to have other new moms to talk to who were experiencing the same things at the same time. Most of us have stayed close even since the class we were in ended, and now that all of our babies are almost one, we decided we wanted to do a group photo of them.

I agreed to take it, on one condition, that they didn’t expect perfection, because you just can’t expect perfection when you try to do a photo of 8 (almost) one year olds at the same time. I was very nervous about what we would get…

Anyways, I think they turned out to be pretty darn perfect… a perfect depiction of a group of 8 babies anyways!

And yes, they are all boys! How crazy is that? I swear there was a major baby boy boom last year about this time.
