It is super rare that I do mini sessions of any kind. I normally plan something out in my head, but when the time comes, things are simply so busy and crazy already, and I run out of time! Last year I made it my goal to run Lil’ Sitters mini session over the colder winter months, and it was so much fun! The babies that came to visit me were so adorable, and since many of them were past newborn clients, it was so much fun to see how much they had grown in just a few short months!
My vision for these sessions had been simple, and timeless. They were completely styled by me, so parents didn’t have to worry or stress about what baby needed to wear. The focus was on these little ones, and on those details you as parents, always want to remember as they grow up all too fast.
I’m super excited to be doing Lil’ Sitters mini session again soon this year! Make sure to watch both the Facebook page and website, for the details and dates to soon be released!
Kaivion was around one month old when he came to visit me in the studio. He was awake and alert, and I got to see his amazing eyes, which is sometimes rare for a newborn session. Then there was this little man’s amazing hair! Have you ever seen such beautiful hair on a new baby! I was simply swooning over it!
Sometimes life gets busy, or moms-to-be don’t realize how far in advance newborn photographers tend to book, how small the window is for newborn portraits, or they simply changed their mind about wanting newborn portraits. If you have already had your baby, and have not yet booked a newborn session, don’t worry! I have worked with many older ‘newborns’ over the years, and have the experience to ensure we capture beautiful, timeless portraits. I typically reserve a couple of day in my calendar each month, for last minute babies, as I simply can never get enough baby cuddles! If you are in the Edmonton area, and interested in newborn photos, please do not hesitate to contacting me.
Little lip bubbles, and tiny peeling hands…they are some of my favourite newborn baby details. Ones that are often forgotten all too soon. That’s where I entire the picture! It’s my job to capture those moments for you, so that they can be cherished and remembered as your little one grows all too fast before your eyes. Creating photo and memories that will last a lifetime, so you will never forget how small they once were, and how they fit so snuggly in your arms.
Three energetic and playful boys, always results in lots of laughter and fun! Especially when the photographer lets you jump on Mom and Dad’s bed! I had so much fun with this family playing in their family home, and then it was warm enough for us to venture outside too!
I always love working families in their home. Littles ones have a chance to warm up to me, as well its the place that memories are made every day as families! It is so special to be able to document and capture that space, at that time, so that years later when kids look back at these photos, they can remember.
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!
