Today I am going to share some photos from a recent newborn/baby session. At six weeks old, Nathan wasn’t quite a new newborn like some of the babies I photograph, but he also wasn’t very old! Sometimes waiting until they are 6-8 weeks old can result in really great photos, they are still tiny like a newborn but they also are able to make eye contact, and some even coo and smile. This little man had lots of smiles for me, just not for my camera unfortunately! But that is ok, I think we got lots of adorable photos of him and his gorgeous family.

I’m sharing a lot, because I had a lot of favorites!

I love that last one of the three siblings together! Sibling shots are always my favorite. Probably because as a mom I know how happy I am to get a good one of all my kiddos together!

three year old big sister was a bit of a tough cookie at first, not falling for any of my jokes or goofing around. But I did manage to get some adorable photos of her, like this next one, I love it! She is adorable!

This little guy had the best eyelashes! I don’t know why boys always get the best eyelashes, but they do.

I love his chubby little hands and arms… that is definitely a bonus to waiting a few weeks to do newborn pictures, they fill out more and have that adorable baby chub! melts my heart. I couldn’t get over how cute this little guy was… didn’t want to move him for fear of waking him up!

Don’t forget to enter my contest to win an 8×10 BE FILLED FRAME (see post below). Remember all red and pink frames are 25% off until Valentines Day!

I’m so excited to announce I am now officially a dealer of Be Filled frames!

If you haven’t yet heard of Be Filled, it is a picture frame company run by my friend Tiffany. Tiffany has the most amazing sense of style (I have consulted her many times for advice on decorating my own home, she truly has an eye for design). She loves to decorate her own home with photographs, and especially loves to display them in cute frames. She is one smart woman because she saw an opportunity to start her own fancy frame business, which is absolutely thriving! It is so awesome to finally be able to get cute frames right here in Lethbridge without having to pay expensive shipping costs. Tiff also sells the most adorable day planners ever which you can also see on her website!

There are four frame styles to choose from, in 10 different colors. You can also get any of the designs as a stacked frame, which is incredibly adorable (basically just what it says, a frame stacked on top of another frame).

Here’s a preview of the four styles available…

As far as colors, you can choose from black, charcoal grey, light grey, russet brown, dark brown, pink, olive green, deep red, pink, purple, baby blue, teal, yellow and cream. I have samples available of every color as well as frame style if you want to see one for yourself.

If you are interested in ordering a frame please give me a call or email me!

To celebrate this new addition to my product line, I am giving away a free 8×10 frame!

(contest limited to those who can meet/pickup frame in the Lethbridge area)

ALSO from now until Valentines day, order any frame in red or pink and get 25% off (single styles only, no stacks included in this sale).

Popping in to share one that stood out at me when I started uploading photos from my newborn session this past weekend. Here’s adorable Nathan. More to come soon!

Well I may be a bit late in saying this but Happy New Year! 2014 will be my 8th year as a photographer! Isn’t that incredible? Hard to believe but when I see some of the babies that I photographed my first year, now walking around as 7/8 year olds I know it is true! I am so thankful for all of my incredible clients that I’ve had over the years and I truly hope to work with you all again in the future!

I know the blog has been very quiet this past year. As most of you know I took some time off to enjoy my third little baby… he’s not so little anymore though, he is 11 months old already. :(   I’ve been thoroughly enjoying my time off just trying to savor every precious baby cuddle and… well let’s be honest  just trying to figure out life with 3 kids and find that mom/work balance (if anyone has found that perfect balance please let me know!)

I definitely plan to get back into business soon but please be advised I will be taking a limited number of sessions each month so please let me know in advance if you are pregnant and wanting a newborn session so we can get you on the schedule.

 

 

I have some exciting announcements coming soon so be sure to check back. New product offerings!! But for now I will just leave you with one of my favorite pictures of the cutest baby who ever lived… (no bias there LOL). He was 4 months old back then… he already looks so different!

I am not officially “back to work” yet, still taking some time to enjoy my newest sweet little baby boy and adjust to this whole “life with three kids thing”… but when a special person called me and asked if I would do some family portraits for her while all her kids (and grandkids) were together in one city I couldn’t say no! I had so much fun working with this big family, everyone was so sweet and lovely and easy to work with (something that can’t always be said of big groups!).

There are many more photos to choose from so I definitely had a hard time narrowing it down  to show a few on my blog. This family has been waiting so patiently for a sneak peek so here it is, I should be done all of the photos soon, but for now I really hope you enjoy these!

I was having so much fun at this session-it was brutally hot BUT I could not complain because we had such a great location, and such cooperative fun subjects! oh and I can’t forget to mention the donkey audience! LOL. :)

So… in a previous post I alluded to the fact that I was expecting a baby in February… and since then the blog has been totally abandoned, sorry for that! So many times I have thought about writing this post and then just as soon as the thought enters my head, it is replaced by someone crying, or needing something, or something urgent needing to be done. In fact I started this draft 4 weeks ago and just realized I never published it!

We welcomed our third baby boy to our family in mid February, and as you can imagine, life has been busy. I did have a chance to do some newborn photos of him but I still haven’t gotten around to editing most of them, or printing them, or sharing them online! My brain feels more than a little overwhelmed, most of the time. I’m sure all you moms can relate. Anyways, here are some pictures of my sweet baby boy, who is now already 12 weeks old (I can’t believe that!). He is such a sweet baby and we are so totally in love with him. Watch the blog for more photos to come (hopefully… eventually!).

If you’ve contacted me lately, I apologize for my delay in responding… email is definitely the best way to get in touch with me at this time as I am taking some time off of work but please don’t let that stop you from sending me a message if you think you’d like to hire me to photograph your family! At some point in the near future I do plan to start taking sessions again, date to be announced. In the meantime I am taking names for my wait list and trying my best to enjoy every precious second with my new little man (and my two bigger boys) because as we all know this time goes by so so so fast and it’s just too important to miss.

Oh yeah, now that I’ve rambled on long enough here are a few photos from our newborn photoshoot(s). Yes that is plural because taking my own newborn’s portraits is so incredibly hard that I could only seem to do it for a few hours here or there and then have to quit and try another day!

I forgot to add these back in December when they were taken, but I thought they were too cute not to share. Here is a few favorite pictures from my studio photoshoot with baby Cooper. He was so cute! He definitely was a mommy’s little boy, no matter where she hid in my studio he tried his best to find her and look at her instead of me! But despite that I got him to look at me too, as you can see and we got some adorable photographs! He was such a charmer, I’m sure you will agree!

 

You’ll have to excuse my lateness in getting some sessions blogged this fall. I have a good excuse, I’ve been distracted. I’m expecting my third baby in early february, and I’ll be honest, getting all my work wrapped up+getting prepared for Christmas meant a few things had to give and that ended up being the blog! So I will try to get a few more sessions on here before my baby arrives, after which I will be taking a little bit of time off work. Please still email me if you’re interested in booking a session and I will let you know what my availability is like at that point but for now I am not taking on any new sessions for at least a few months.

 

Here are a few favorites from my baby photo session with Adam. He was so cute, so smiley and soooo very busy. Luckily it was his mom who had to chase him and not me because I am not so quick on my feet these days. Although he was a bit tough to pin down everytime we got him to stay still we got adorable photos so it was totally worth it! I love sessions like that, quick and easy!

Enjoy!

 

This next one is my favorite, you just can’t help but smile when you see such a cute happy baby!

Here is a sneak peek of adorable 4 month old Ejay. This little baby boy came to have his pictures done a couple weeks ago in my studio and he was such a happy little guy, very sweet and easy to work with!

I LOVE this next one of Ejay and his mommy!  So precious. Clearly a very LOVED little boy!

the last one is for his monkey themed bedroom! Too cute!
