Cerise, Calgary Maternity Photos

Cerise, Calgary Maternity Photos

I thoroughly enjoyed meeting and photographing Cerise and Kyle. They are so easy going and relaxed in front of the camera. With all the joking and laughing going on, it didn’t even feel like work at all. When Cerise had contacted me about doing her maternity photos I loved her enthusiasm about documenting this important time in her life. She was so positive and raved about how she loved being pregnant. Her excitement was certainly contagious and I knew that we would have a wonderful session together.

Meet little man Lincoln. He was just over a week old when we had our session, and we shot this session on his actual due date. He is super cuddly and I certainly enjoyed sneaking in as many cuddles as I possible could.
I just wanted to share one image right now to help tide his mom and dad over, until the full gallery is ready.

I was super excited that mom loved this little outfit I had just ordered. Isn’t he sweet in it? Lincoln, you have one of the most adorable little faces I have ever seen. Thank you for being such a great little model for me. I will have the rest of your images ready soon.

Celebrating Mothers | Claire, Lila & Holden

Celebrating Mothers. Claire, Lila & Holden

I recently held my yearly ” Celebrating Mothers ” mini sessions. These are my favorite sessions of the year, every year. This year was no exception. These sessions are really important to me. As a mother I know how little we mothers tend to get into photos with our children. We are usually the ones taking all the photos.

My goal with these images is to keep it simple and timeless. The focus is the relationship between mother and child. I hope that in keeping these images simple, they will be proudly displayed throughout many years to come.

Fun Family Photos | In Home Session

I met with this family a couple weekends ago with the sole intention of creating some fun family photos. And fun family photos we created! We had a blast. Little man, Brixtin, led the session from start to finish. A brief look into the morning of a 15 month old…

He likes to play hockey…

Thank you SO much Marion, Jay, Brixtin and Izzy. It was an absolute pleasure to spend a morning observing you all, just being you.

Calgary Newborn Photos | Catherine

Calgary Newborn

Meet one of the sweetest Calgary newborn baby’s I have ever photographed. She was a dream to work with, and I thoroughly enjoyed cuddling with her while she was here in the studio.

This was my second session with her, if you count the maternity session I did for her mom.

I’ve been photographing new baby’s for 14 of my 17 years as a professional photographer. The thing I love about newborn photography is that every single baby is unique. No two sessions are ever the same. I love helping clients document this important, and life changing time in their family.

With this session you get a Mini Maternity session with digital negatives or a gallery matted album. You also receive a complimentary, in studio, full newborn session.

I am also getting ready to head back outside for sessions. I have a couple openings left for the end of May. Everything should be getting nice and green around then, there should be plenty of new buds on the trees. Its a great time to have a session done.
