I am excited to share these photographs from a recent family “mini session” that I photographed in late October. This adorable family wanted to include the 4th “member” of the family and I just love how these turned out. Dogs are definitely important members of the family and should be remembered in our family portraits. Even when it comes to my own family’s photos, we have included our own pups the past couple years and now I’m afraid my kids won’t let me do a family photo without the dogs (which makes things fun that’s for sure!).

Of course I do think it’s important to do some “people only photos” too so here are some of my favorites! I love how this session turned out. Beautiful day, beautiful sunset light, and a super beautiful family!

Thanks for checking out my photography blog today!

Today I am popping in to share a few more of my favorite photos from my recent studio photography session with Jaxden and Peyton. When it comes to defining my “style” in photography, I have to say my favorites and the photos that I feel represent my style the most are the relationship photos. Real, true, fun, (sometimes not fun) family moments are my favorite and of course genuine expressions. I work so hard to get my clients to relax, to truly smile at me, to laugh (sometimes I am truly making a fool of myself) but the results are always so worth it.

A few of my favorites of brother and sister together…

 

and the handsome big brother alone…


Last but not least, the star of the show, Peyton.

Our main focus of the session was to get some adorable “1 year old” portraits to celebrate her recently turning one! I love this little outfit her mom got for her!

And of course we had fun playing dress up with her and using all my girly props… just another day at the office if you know what I mean 😉

Checking into my photography blog today to share a sneak peek from a recent vintage style studio baby photography session in Lethbridge. I know the momma of this precious baby girl has been waiting oh so patiently to see these, and I don’t want to make her wait any longer!

I just got that vintage wagon toy and I couldn’t be happier about how it worked for this image! (Cute baby also doesn’t hurt).

Also in love with using my new vintage washtub that I picked up a few weeks ago. Baby picture perfection! My personal philosophy when it comes to using props in a photoshoot is that less is more. I LOVE a timeless, classic image and I think that can only be created with minimal props that enhance the image, rather than to steal attention from the true subject of the portrait-the child! Looking through my website galleries you won’t see photos with a ton of props-and that is intentional. I strive to create timeless portrait photographs that won’t look like an out of date trend a few years from now. That being said I am always open to using frilly outfits and diaper covers. I am the mom to three little boys so I always joke about how I only really get to indulge my girly frilly pretty prop side when I have baby girls in my studio.

And for now I will add one more, of the adorable baby Peyton with her big brother. I work hard to make sure I get at least one awesome shot of SIBLINGS TOGETHER because I know as a mom, those are the pictures that just make your heart happy-when you get a great picture of your kids TOGETHER, HAPPY, with genuine expressions!

I’ve been getting a lot of inquiries about fall family photos. If you are desiring a fall family photoshoot with me, please book now for best fall color. With the recent cold snap I have a feeling we will lose a lot of leaves (and all the gorgeous color) very quickly here in Southern Alberta so book early to avoid disappointment. Email me through my contact page and let me know when you would like to get your photos done. I have limited availability but keep myself flexible to compensate for bad weather.

I was so excited to work with this family again! Last time they came to see me, big sister Molly was the baby. Her baby session was one of my favorite baby sessions ever, because she was so happy awake, and so adorable asleep. This time Molly brought her brand new baby sister Adeline (17 days old). And just like last time, these two beautiful girls were perfect photoshoot subjects. Here are a few of my favorites from our studio session together (lots to share because it was such a great session!).

If you are expecting and would like to book a newborn session with me, please send me a message as soon as you think of it! Newborns are best photographed at a young age so they stay sleepy and happy :)

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!

As you may have noticed on my website, I primarily photograph babies and children. I don’t do a lot of weddings these days, but this summer I agreed to photograph Shantel and Chad’s beautiful wedding and I had a lot of fun working with them and their very fun bridal party.

Here is a sneak peek from the wedding… hope you enjoy it!

Aren’t those the greatest shoes? DESIGNED by the bride and ordered online. Too cool!

You may have noticed that it’s been a while since I posted on the blog… I felt like I needed a little time off to spend with my little guys… who are growing up way too fast! It was a good decision because my kids ended up being sick almost the entire month of February and into March (oh the joys!).

Anyways, now I am back at work, and enjoying it very much. I recently had the pleasure of photographing this adorable little guy. Elim is a sweet baby boy and as you’ll see in these photos, he has the most beautiful blue eyes!

This is a sneak peek, watch the facebook page for more to come in the next couple weeks.
