For the past few months my husband and I have been having a hard time choosing a name for our baby, and we only have a couple weeks left! A friend of mine sent me the link to the Service Alberta website, and I am finding it to be very helpful. I love how you can see exactly how many Johns or Janes there were each year for the past 9 years in Alberta. It is really interesting to me how a name that is way far down in popularity on the American websites is in the top 10 for popularity in Alberta, weird!

I figured that since the majority of my blog readers are either expecting parents or parents of young children (who might one day have more) I would share this link. I hope you find it helpful!

Alberta’s Top Baby Names

This little guy was so sweet, he really made me excited to meet my own little one very soon… I thought I’d share a sneak peek for his mom and dad.

I think I caught him pre-sneeze? :-)

I had to try out this hat that I picked up at the birth, belly and baby expo (from Lots of Knots). I don’t have a lot of baby boy hats/props but I thought this one was cute.

This really was one of my favorite sessions ever… who could complain about a perfectly happy baby who was very patient and let her mom and I try on outfit after outfit and prop after prop? Eventually she did tell us that she was done but not before we got an awesome variety of adorable images. I can’t pick a favorite, I really love them all – so this is going to be a big sneak peek…

Her expressions in these last two just crack me up so I had to include them…

Laren just turned 8 months old when we did our session and I have to say it, this is my favorite age (well this and very new newborns). I just LOVE the 7-10 month range; when they are sitting up but not yet walking. In fact I love it so much that I am currently discounting the session fee for this age range, so if you have a baby in this stage don’t hesitate to book an appointment, you will not be disappointed!
