I was so excited to meet Asha at her at-home newborn session. Her big brother Amari was so amazing during the session, holding and protecting his baby sister <3 I love that we were able to continue the tradition of photos with the Fairy Tale book that we first used in Bal’s maternity photos with Amari. The book may be a bit more worn, but it holds a special place in the family’s heart.
I was so excited for Tamara and Dave when I found out that they were expecting again! I had the honour of capturing the newborn photos of their first son, Mason, and their wedding photos so it was amazing to be invited back into their home to capture the newborn photos of their beautiful daughter Harper! Mason was an absolute ham during the session and we were able to get some special moments of them as a family of 4. Welcome to such an amazing family Harper!
Bal and I go way back, our lockers were beside each other in senior high school and I’m so glad that we’ve stayed connected throughout the years. I was super excited to hear that she was expecting her second child, as she’s an absolutely amazing mom to her little guy Amari!
When she first contacted me to do her maternity photo I didn’t have much availability as it was right in the middle of summer. Luckily, I had a last-minute cancellation and we were able to get together to do some of the last photos of them as a family of 3!
I’ll tell you something: pregnancy looks good on this girl, and I’m so excited that the next session that I will do with them, they will be a family of 4!
I’ve really fallen in love with at-home newborn sessions! I love the story that they tell of the everyday life of the families that I capture and that I’m able to take in the details of the nursery. When I did Moria and Derek’s maternity session for their first daughter it was in this same home, so it was super cool to come back for their second daughter’s newborn session. There were a few photos that they wanted to do so that they’d have the same images for both daughters, and I’m super happy that we were able to do them! Congratulations Moira, Derek, and Nevaeh: Izzy is a beautiful addition to your already amazing family!
I’m going to start this off by saying this might have to be one of my all time favourite sessions ever! Amanda and I had been talking for some time about her wanting to get a puppy. She knew my husband and I have two black labs, and she wanted some advice on getting her first puppy. Once they picked out the breeder and knew when they were going to get her, I started to think about how cute it would be to have a lifestyle newborn session with the puppy! When Lucy was born, Amanda started to share her photos from the breeder’s site with me and I fell in love! I approached Amanda and Dustin with my idea and they were totally game. We set up the session about 1 week after they brought her home, when Lucy was 9 weeks old. Now, I haven’t photographed many puppies and I wasn’t sure how this would go. But OH MY GOODNESS, it was cuteness OVERLOAD!! Not only did she sleep through part of the session, but didn’t oppose to getting wrapped up or placed in a bowl. I think I could have stayed there all week photographing her.
I got an added surprise when Amanda messaged me a few weeks later to tell me that Bosley’s had chosen one of Lucy’s images to be in their annual calendar! So cool!
I have been fortunate to be able to capture this family for the past few years. I remember back to when we arrived at the house where Moira was getting ready for her wedding, and she slyly told me that she had just found out that week she was pregnant with their first child. I was beyond excited for them! Fast-forward 2 ½ years and many photos later, and she was messaging me to let me know that baby #2 was on the way.
Moira and Derek are the best parents, and I couldn’t be happier that they would be welcoming baby #2 this summer! We met up at Derby Reach Park late one Saturday evening to capture this exciting moment in their lives. This little girl is already so loved by her big sister and the most amazing parents! I can’t wait to share their newborn session with everyone in just a few weeks!
One of the best parts about being a photographer is watching a couple go from being engaged, to getting married, to being parents! So when Erica messaged me to let me know that she and Jordan were expecting this spring I was beyond excited to capture their maternity photos!
We had picked Centennial Beach for the location, and were lucky enough to have the sun come out. It has been a long winter, so the sun was a nice break. That said, it was COLD! Erica, like a champ, rocked her cute grey dress and even went barefoot in the sand. There were a lot of “pretend your in Hawaii” comments made during the session! My husband John was along with me to help with their session, and to hold their puppy Dexter in-between shots. Dexter was full of energy and puppiness, which only added to the laughs and giggles through the session!
These two are the most amazing parents to their little girl and I can’t wait to watch her grow up and take more family photos of them!
I was so excited when I got the text message that little Miss Fiona was here! Sara and Ty were born to be parents, and Charlie was born to be a big brother! It was only a few short weeks after Sara and Ty’s maternity/family session, and I was so looking forward to some baby snuggles!
I headed out to Sara and Ty’s place on a Saturday morning in January. I loved just sitting with them and capturing these little moments for them with their new little girl Fiona. She never made a peep through her entire session, and I loved watching them cuddle together as a family of 4. Sara and Ty did such a great job with her nursery. I can’t wait to watch Fiona grow up and I’m looking forward to my next session with this amazing family.
I first met Erin at Amanda and Dustin’s wedding in August 2016. Her and her hubby were expecting their first baby and I was so excited when she contacted me to capture their newborn photos. I absolutely love Lifestyle Newborn sessions because I feel they tell a story of the family. For me, Lifestyle Newborn photos capture precious moments (like the little toes and fingers, tucked into their crib in their nursey) for my clients to look back at and love. Leo was an absolute rockstar for his session and I loved his nursery. It was so light and airy. Congratulations Erin and Kevin! Leo is beyond adorable and I look forward to our next session together.
I love when I get to meet up with people that I’ve known for years and take photos of their growing family. Bill (or Billy as he’ll forever be known to me) and I became friends back in Junior High, our lockers always beside each other due to being side by side in the alphabet! I always called Billy the Candy Man because he had the biggest sweet tooth and always had boxes of candy stashed in his locker. It so cool to now see him as a dad.
I was super excited when Alex messaged me and asked if I would capture this exciting time in their lives, just before becoming parents to two more! Yes you read that right twins! I can’t believe that Alex is already 34 weeks and that there are two babies in there, she looks beyond amazing! We met up at Campbell Valley Park and explored around taking photos at the old school house, the red barn, and in the fields amongst the fall trees! It was so great to catch up with them again and I can’t wait to hear the news that their new babies are here! Congratulations Bill, Alex, and Will!
