I was so honored to be asked to photograph this extended family session because I spent a lot of time in this backyard, with this lovely family, when I was a kid. It really doesn’t feel like it was that long ago at all… but in the same way feels like it’s been forever! It’s always cool to see how the people you grew up with, grow up and have families of their own. I couldn’t ask for a nicer family to work with and I really had fun reconnecting with them all.

In typical Lethbridge fashion, we had to deal with gale force winds during this family photo session. But despite the wind blowing everyone’s hair every which way, I am really happy with the photographs from this session. I am almost finished the gallery and I’m excited to show them to the family, but for now, here is a sneak peek of a few that stood out at me… more to come soon!

*just a note, I notice when viewing this blog on a mobile device the photos can sometimes be a bit blurry, if that happens click on the actual photo to see it the way it is supposed to look!

There’s something about this last one that I just love. It might be my favorite.

It’s been a long time since I’ve updated the blog, truth be told I was taking some unofficial time off for a bit, and I have to say it feels really good to be doing some photography again! I realized today it’s been almost 11 years since I started this business! I am so thankful that I have so many amazing clients who call me when they add a new baby to their family, so I get to watch them grow and help them capture it too!

One of my most favorite newborn sessions was back in 2011, when I took pictures of these gorgeous newborn twins… (see more from that session here)

Well now these girls have grown up a bit, still just as gorgeous!!!

I really, really struggled in choosing which photos to share in this sneak peek. I don’t want to give away all the best ones, because I want there to be some delightful surprises when mom and dad view their proof gallery… but I also really really want to share so many of them!!! So these will have to do for now.

I LOVE this family photo…

Gavin is as you can see, was a very, very alert newborn! Thankfully we got tons of adorable awake photos because he really didn’t want to sleep for me! But I love that we got so much variety, it’s so fun to have both awake and asleep photos of such a new little guy!

I will share more later. Lots more favorites to come!

I am in love with the photos from this recent Lethbridge newborn photography session. Little Jaxon was such an amazing little newborn model, he slept like a champ! I literally did not want to stop taking his pictures, I just wanted to keep going on and on. I have so many new favorite images, it was so hard for me to narrow down which ones to show here on the blog so, I picked a lot! I hope you enjoy looking at these.

Such a beautiful family!


I am taking a limited number of bookings for fall, and since fall is always a popular time for photos, that means you should book early to reserve a date. Give me a call (or email!) today!

 

Just a quick one to share of this adorable newborn baby boy named Jaxon. He was a dream baby and it was so incredibly hard to pick one to share first, because I love all the photos from his photo session! More to come very soon!

 

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!

 

Normally I’d try and space out the sneak peeks but I know this little man’s parents have been waiting so patiently for this. It just took me awhile to get the new blog up and running and I really wanted to wait until it was ready to do any more blog posts. So here it is, Ewan’s newborn session sneak peek. Little Ewan was almost 3 weeks old when I photographed him, and he was set to prove me wrong (I usually say that babies older than 2 weeks can be difficult to get sleepy curled up poses). This little guy was an absolute doll baby and he really gave me baby fever. He was a big little guy, over 9lbs at birth. And totally covered in blonde fuzz, which just brings me right back to my youngest when he was a newborn, he was also almost 9lbs and a very hairy baby so little Ewan seriously reminded me so much of him… aww they grow up so fast!  Now my “baby” is almost 2! But anyways, back to Ewan…

I love this one, great eye contact.

I have been waiting so long to use this hat and diaper cover set. So fun! Look how big he is, he fills that bowl out! I LOVE big newborns… they look like they are older but they curl up like the newborns they are… aww… can you tell I just love chubby babies?

He was totally fast asleep but he opened his eyes up for a moment and I caught this next one… I LOVE it!

This wagon was the best $25 I ever spent! I have been wanting to use it for a newborn session for awhile but it never worked out, until this session! I love it!

He looks like such a little peanut in this next one.

Hope you enjoyed this sneak peek of newborn photography. If you are interested in booking a session with me please use the contact form (top right of this site) and send me a message!

once upon a time a couple fell in love and got married (and I had the privilege of photographing it)…

then a couple years later they had a baby boy whom I also had the pleasure of photographing…

fast forward another few years and that little baby boy is a big brother!

I LOVE that I have literally gotten to watch this family grow (and capture it for them in photos) and it is such an honor that they continue to choose me as their photographer.

Ok, now onto the subject of this post, sweet newborn baby Alexis! She was so tiny, just 6lbs… I just love how her dainty little hands are folded in this next one of her.

an awake one, I LOVE calm awake newborn photos.

She was sleeping like this and I loved how her little hands sort of formed a heart.

I am in love with this next one! Smiling newborn photos are my favorite!

and to end this sneak peek, the biggest yawn ever!

I was looking forward to photographing baby Kori long before she was born. She is the daughter of one of my very good friends, so I was so so so excited to meet her and take her pictures. Here is a sneak peek from her session, enjoy!

I am so in love with this first one, adorable! Would be so cute on a birth announcement.

You might wonder why I would pose the baby like she is in the next photo, so I will just tell you right now, I didn’t! She really liked to be held like that, she’s got long limbs (lucky girl!) and liked to have them sticking straight out!

Arrdyn is the daughter of one of my close friends so I was thrilled to photograph her… however she wasn’t so thrilled to be photographed, this was a very long session but in the end we got some great images. I think she just wanted her mom and I to have some extra long chat time while calling it “work”. Thanks Arrdyn! Chat time is always good :-) and I know I will get many more chances to photograph you as you grow!

There is really nothing like a new baby, is there? The wrinkles, the dry skin, the adorable little faces they make in their sleep… the newborn stage is truly one of the most precious ages to capture in portraits. It’s an honor to be chosen to photograph these sweet little babies, and I truly enjoy working with each and every one.

Here is a sneak peek from my recent session with Arden.

Arden came to my studio when she was both 12 and 13 days old (why? because on day 12 she didn’t really feel like being photographed!). On day 13 she decided she would pose oh so sweetly for me, and I love the images I was able to create at her session.

This next one is definitely one of my favorite newborn/family images ever. I love it.

If you are expecting and would like to have me photograph your new baby, please call or email me as soon as you can (before baby is born) or within a few days of baby arriving so that I can make room in my schedule. Newborns are best photographed within the first 14 days of life if possible.
