Mom & Me Photography 101

photography 101 edmonton

It wasn’t until my second maternity leave that I learned how to use my camera. I knew I was going to be the one witnessing so many firsts with my new bundle at home, and I wanted to capture all of that for my husband to see when he got home.

Learning how to use my camera is one of the best gifts (aside my from boys of course!) I gave to myself and I want to share that same experience with you.

What it IS:

  •  A 2 hour Mom & Me Photography 101 workshop for you to bring your camera and learn how to capture this precious time digitally.
  • We will talk ISO, Lighting, Aperture and Shutter Speed.
  • This workshop is for moms with babies 12 months and younger.

What it ISN’T:

  • a newborn posing class

This special Mom & Me Photography 101 workshop is available on the following dates in April. All workshops are from 10:00am-noon.

  • April 7th
  • April 14th
  • Arpil 28th

The cost of the workshop is $125. An email from PayPal will be sent to reserve your spot in the class. Upon receipt you will be invited to join our Shine 365 closed Facebook page where I share images daily with the settings I used to capture them. This is also a great forum to post your own images, ask questions and share.

To reserve a spot in any of the above dates please email me at

*For moms who have children older than 12 months, don’t fear as a one day workshop in May is headed your way.  Email me today to get on the VIP list and be the first to hear about the release date.

Mini Monday

And just like that, mini Monday is back! These are super fun, 30 minute sessions perfect for kids kindergarten age and younger. They’re also great for that second (or third) child you just don’t have as many pictures of…..sound familiar?

Many people take advantage of these sessions to celebrate their child’s birthday or as an introduction to custom photography. Kids at this age are growing and changing so fast, mini Monday is a great way to capture your child at this moment and freeze time.

Spots are limited to 2 per Monday. Email me to reserve one today. edmonton mini session

Army Mini Session

We are not a military family, although you’d question that last statement if you saw our basement toy room. My two boys love everything about guns. Guns that light up, make realistic sounds, don’t make sound, ones that are broken, rapid fire, single bullet, fashioned out of lego (or a stick, or just about anything), I could go on but you get the idea.  My youngest is also into wearing the appropriate costume to make it feel super authentic. We will be celebrating his 4th birthday army style and these are just a few images from his ARMY mini session (one he willingly participated in :)

I am so excited to introduce themed mini sessions each month. These are 30 minute sessions your kids will LOVE because they are geared towards what THEY love, and what’s important to them at this stage in their childhood. As an added bonus, there are no “session fees” which make these mini sessions super affordable.

Join the troops and celebrate all things military Saturday March 22, 2014. Space is limited to 4 spots, email me to reserve one today.

Tiny Dancer Mini Session

This year I am adding themed mini sessions each month. The Tiny Dancer Mini session is the second themed session I’ll be hosting this year. I am more of a dance like no one’s watching kinda girl than a graceful ballerina, but I think these mini sessions will be super fun (and I may even learn a move or two.)

If you have a blooming ballerina or serious dance machine on your hands, join me on Saturday February 22nd and let’s capture that special spirit.

I have many more mini sessions lined up and release the info and dates in my monthly digital newsletter KID AWESOME. Subscribers get first access to all upcoming promos and mini session information so subscribe today.
