Last night I sat in my office, with my homemade chai-eggnog latte and listened to Michael Buble’s Christmas album. I was putting the finishing touches on Luca’s gallery from the perfect snowy winter photo session, getting ready to send it off to him Mom. It was then that it dawned on me, that I had yet to blog this session from last fall! Photographer fail! It’s a good thing I’m not just a blogger, but first and foremost a photographer, as despite all my attempts, I’m always behind on blogging. So without further adieu, here is little Luca from last year! Stay tuned to Instagram and Facebook too soon see a sneak peek at his session from this year! Trust me you don’t want to miss that one! Because somehow his eyelashes are even more amazing now! Right from when he was a newborn he has had the most incredible eyelashes!
Sleep now little girl, for tomorrow you will be a busy toddler running around exploring, and your Mommy will be busy extra busy chasing after you! It always happens before you know it, and these little newborn babies change so fast. It is one of the reason, there is something so incredibly timeless and special about newborn portraits. Sometimes during that first couple of sleep-deprived weeks of life with a newborn, it can be hard to think about being in photos with your newborn, or even getting them done in the first place. But I can promise you, it is something you will not regret as the years’ pass. Especially, for you as a new mom to be in the photos too. Never again will your new baby be that tiny, or that curly. Those are the days you want to remember and look back on.
Each mini session will receive a gorgeous complimentary photo keepsake ornament, either metal or a wood frame, with the image of your choice as my Holiday gift to you! Samples will be available for you to see during your mini session.
Optional packages are available for purchase after your session, to help take the stress out of the holiday season. With additional digital files, personalized gifts for that special family member on your list, as well as holiday cards are taken care of!
Spaces are limited, book your session now before they are gone!
It was so wonderful to have this family in my Edmonton studio again. I had photographed big sister Kalea when she was a newborn, a little over six years ago now, and it was so wonderful to see how much she had grown over the years. Her baby brother, Maxim, is now such a lucky little man to be able to grow up with two big sisters. I know they will help take such good care of him, and the three of them will have so many adventures together as the year’s pass.

When I was little, my family and I travelled to the mountains nearly every summer. I didn’t realize how lucky I was though at the time because I was dreaming of beaches with white sand. Now the mountains are my favourite place to visit. There is something spectacular and mesmerising about them, and their sheer size is so majestic. I look for every opportunity I can to visit them, and escape for a weekend! For this family, living in Calgary, the mountains around Banff and Canmore are also an escape and a place for them to adventure together. They were also the perfect stunning backdrop for their annual family photos! I don’t know if it gets any better than this.

Last fall when Nathan and Elizabeth were just a little smaller, and the leaves in Edmonton had already fallen from the trees, we headed to Whyte Avenue to adventure and explore. I love this family, and I just saw them again recently as we explored in the mountains of Canmore together during our Adventure Family session! Stay tuned for that session soon!
