It’s this little miss’ FIRST BIRTHDAY next month, so I figured it’s about time I blog this gorgeous session. Totally adored by her big brother, this little girlie is an amazing addition to such an already beautiful family. Miss. A is suuuuper bubbly & happy, she has an infectious smile and [appears to be] very easy-going. You can definitely tell M&D are totally smitten… here are a few of my favs!

Enjoy,

Newborn: Finnie Family

Finnie-8

Back in May I had the pleasure of meeting this beautiful new family of three. Britt & Brett made being new parents look so easy – they were complete naturals. & Elwood is as handsome as ever, just look at him.

For this post I decided to turn their beautiful gallery into a video – a keepsake for them to watch back and cherish. Especially when this little man grows up way too fast. I would recommend watching it in HD.

Enjoy,

How To: #YEG Leg Grounds

Legis-2

A couple of weeks ago I hung out at the legislature grounds with two other mamas and all of our littles (6!). I had never been before and was a little intimidated (downtown is not usually my jam). I tried to do some research the night before but didn’t find much. So here is what I discovered! (& that the kiddos LOVED it)

Newborn Lifestyle Photography

Mr. T-2

I had the wonderful opportunity to meet these new parents last August and capture some beautiful moments as a family of three. Considering Mr. T is almost 9 months now and has like 4 teeth, I’m pretty sure I can’t actually call them new parents anymore. Plus you could also say that I am way behind on my blogging………………

Anyways! I have been receiving a lot of interest in lifestyle newborn shoots and would like to provide a little insight into my unique process.

Grady-4

So I am FINALLY getting around to blogging about my latest session with this beautiful family. Last spring I had the amazing opportunity to capture their maternity photos and late August beautiful Harlee arrived. These two are so in love with: one another; their new babe, and their old babe, Otis the maltese. It’s always a treat to have them in front of my lens. I can’t wait to share my favourite snaps with you!

A logical assumption would be that it served as a creative outlet during my maternity leave with Brynlee. But then I fell in love.
