When you live in Edmonton, and it feels like the predominant season is always winter, you need to find ways to embrace it and have fun! That includes family photos too! Beautiful golden light, fresh snow, and your favourite stuffie to keep you warm, and it is a recipe for magic! This family is so amazing, and its been so fun, to work with them over the years as we have done fall, spring and winter portraits over the years to document Tatiana growing!
Violet’s Mom had the most amazing vision for her Tiffany inspired cake smash photo session, and I love how it all came together! Violet is such an amazing little girl, and I have loved watching her grow and change! She really enjoyed her cake too!
Little Avery was a dream when she came to visit the newborn studio. It was cold outside, but so warm and toasty inside, and she slept so soundly. I loved her pink and white session, so dainty and perfect just for her.
One of my favourite ways to photograph families, is in their homes. To simply document them, in the comfort of their own space, doing the things that they love to do as a family. There is never a shortage of laugher, snuggles, and cuddles when I’m there. Just like when I visited six month old Sophia in her home. It was chilly outside that day, so we stayed warm and cozy inside. I still can’t get over her amazing blue eyes!!!
This handsome baby boy, was such a dream for his first set of baby portraits, and model like a professional for me! It is hard to believe he will soon be a year old! Time simply slips away too quickly, and babies grow too fast in my opinion. It is always so wonderful to be able to look back at photos and remember. To book your newborn photo session, please visit the website www.christywells.com. It is hard to believe but 2016 is fully booked, and I am now booking for 2017!
Just in time for Christmas last year, we did this family’s annual family photos at the stunning Belvedere Golf & Country club. It is such a stunning venue and was so peaceful and pristine! As always I love working with these girls, who are just growing up so quickly!
I don’t know if there is anything more magical than a fresh blanket of snow, like we had for Hudson’s family photos. Living in Edmonton, winter is simply a matter of fact, and something that everyone knows if coming. And as a result it is something you need to embrace, and have fun with! Just like we did for this family session by sledding, and simply enjoying the snow.
I love these girls! These photos are from last fall, and we just updated their portraits this past weekend, right before the snow hit Edmonton! Its so neat to see how much they have grown looking back on these.
