Ok, these three boys are just straight up adorable!! This was an extra special newborn session for me as this is my friend Shana’s beautiful third baby boy. Three boys in the house….oh my, I see a lot of spa days in her future :). Sebastian was the perfect newborn model. He slept through the entire session and never made a peep. You can tell his two older brothers Alexander (5) and Grayson (3) are so happy to have a new brother in the house and mom says they are the best helpers. Almost makes you want to have another one when it’s this perfect…..ALMOST. We took the opportunity to capture some updated images of them as well and they rocked their session!! Look out J Crew, we’ve got some Canadian talent for you.

As perfect as this session was, it is bittersweet as this was my last newborn session. I am no longer accepting newborn clients, but I am happy to refer you to some really fantastic local photographers. Please feel free to email me and I will give you more information. I am of course still accepting child + family sessions and am booking into the new year. Please call me at 780 554-6736 to schedule your session.

One of the most rewarding and creative parts of being a photographer for me is the ability to create a custom portrait session for my clients. This particular session was truly inspiring. Carol McBee owner of Bossy Mama and president of Mommy Connections and I met at a trade fair earlier in the year. Bossy Mama Inc. is a “business network for entrepreneurial women. The organization gives a strong voice to the female business community and strives to encourage more entrepreneurial women to follow their dreams of owning their own business”. As my photography business was just getting off the ground I decided to join her Bossy Mama network and the rest is history.

I am definitely a planner, but Carol already had ideas for her Christmas cards back in May! We brainstormed back and forth and she came up with the idea of a “Mad Men” themed shoot for their more formal images. How fun? And they certainly nailed it!

For their Christmas cards, their daughter Madelyn (who will be 3 this month) spelled out “Joy” to perfection! Although we are still in November, a fun and festive session likes this certainly gets you in the spirit of the holidays!

Iseul. Her name is Korean meaning “Dew”. Such a pretty and soft name perfect for this precious baby girl. I first met Iseul when she was 28 days old, and then a second time with mom + dad when she was nearly 2 months old. You can really see the difference in the images below. Oh how they grow so fast. This is an exciting time for this family as Iseul is the first baby for mom + dad and the first grandchild in her family. She is extremely loved. Welcome to the world Iseul :).
