Oh, sweet little Bodhi! This little boy was full of sleepy smiles for me, but I also think he wasn’t exactly too impressed with me either 😂. The looks he gave me while I was working with him, had me laughing! Maybe it was the weather he wasn’t impressed with though, because when he came to visit me in the studio is was also the middle of winter in Edmonton, and snowing just like it is outside right now. Regardless of the outdoor weather, I loved meeting this handsome man and his parents. I would love to meet you and your newborn baby too! Now booking into 2019 and limited spaces remain for 2018 babies!
Ok Edmonton, I know it is September 13th and there is snow outside! It makes me want to cry too, but we have to have faith that fall will come back to us! Hang in there with me! I mean, this family session was from last September, but it was right at the end of the month, and it was so beautiful and warm. It was to celebrate Petra’s birthday, and what a better way to celebrate than with your family, best friend, and wine! She has it all figured out if you ask me ;)
This family is one of my favourites! I’ve been so lucky to photograph both of these little ones when they were newborns and watch them grow over the years. These photos are from last fall, right in the middle of September in Edmonton when the sun was warm, the colours just perfect, and their laughs simply radiant!
My fall schedule for family portraits in Edmonton is almost full! I am trying to fit as many families in as possible, and have opened up a couple more spaces because of the requests keep flowing in! If you would like a spot, please don’t delay in contacting me, so we can chat.
Here is the secret, and my number one tip for family photos! Are you ready?
You need to have FUN!
Forget you are taking photos! It should not be stressful. It is about making memories together as a family, whether your kids are young or old. Read books, play games, have a picnic, pick wildflowers, blow bubbles, and always lots and lots of tickles! This family did it all, and this session was epic! I love how it truly shows them, their personalities, and how much love they have for each other.

Those first few days slip by in such a blur, how will you remember them? What details do you want to remember? Those tiny fingers and tiny toes, or the way they curl up so tiny and small, or how they fit so perfectly into your arms as you hold them? I capture it all for you, so you can look back and remember and smile. As the fall approaches newborn photography session in Edmonton are booking up quickly! If you are interested in more information about booking your newborn session, don’t delay. Visit me here for more information.
Do you have children over 8 years old? Maybe teenagers? Pause for one moment, and ask yourself when did you last have family portraits done? Was it not long after your little one started walking? Or maybe when baby number two joined your family. My guess is at some point after that, there is a gap…a period of time where our kids don’t seem to change as quickly, and life becomes busy with activities. That is the phase I’m in with my children, and I will confess, I’m guilty of the same. As I stop and look at my kids, and as I meet my amazing clients, I am reminded how important it is to continue to document those kids and adolescent years. They slip between our fingers all too fast, and it is so wonderful to have the memories to reflect on in years to come.
So I encourage you, book your family photos for this fall! If you are in Edmonton, I would love to work with you. There is still time to take advantage of the ‘EARLYBOOKINGPROMO‘ and receive a complimentary set of holiday cards as well! September dates are limited already, so don’t delay and contact me today!
Their first look at Hotel MacDonald, then these two lovebirds, walked down the aisle and said their vows. Their closest friends and family joined them at St. Joseph’s Basilica to witness the exchange, before they jetted off to the sun and sand for the big show and to say their ‘I do’s‘ on the beach.
Summer is here! Long days, sunshine, and days spent at the pool (Reminder: make sure you take advantage of the City of Edmonton’s free outdoor pools again!) It is also time to think about your fall family portraits! I am so excited to announce that booking for September and October session is now open, and prime dates are going fast!

Tuesday after a long weekend, has us all sleeping like baby Ainslie when she came to visit me in the studio! I hope everyone one had an amazing Canada Day long weekend though. We celebrated with friends and then walked down Edmonton’s river valley in the evening to watch the fireworks.
If you want to know the symbolic meaning behind the dandelions next to Ainslie, go and see her Mom’s maternity photos and read the beautiful story.
