I had the pleasure of photographing another awesome family this week and got to meet little 3 month old N. He is such a cute little boy and it was such a joy to capture their family photos. Here are a couple from their session. You can view the rest at my new blog:

Over Thanksgiving weekend I had the pleasure of photographing the Janssen family in their home. Parents, grandparents and Uncle were all included and it was really nice to see them all again. Little Kaylee is growing up so fast and isn’t very little any more and I got to meet baby Cole for the first time. Here are some of my favorites of Kaylee and Cole to share. Now I’m back to editing weddings and will blog all the other sessions as soon as I can!



I love this shot of Kaylee looking in her bedroom mirror. Such gorgeous eyes!





One month old – cute baby Cole!



I’ve been so busy working on weddings my portrait sessions haven’t been blogged so I wanted to give you all a sneak peek for what is to come!


The above is the beautiful 3 year old Aurora! Here she is in her back yard in August. She is the daughter of a friend of mine.


Above is the lovely Loh family. I just adored their kids! Here is one of my favorite shots from their session. Billy (dad) shoots one or two weddings with me a year. He’s a great photographer and I’ve really enjoyed getting to know him and now his family.


I had the pleasure of photographing the Berg family last week close to their home on the west end. They are the recipients of a gift certificate they purchased to raise money for a non-profit organization I’m supporting. You guys are a lovely family and it was wonderful to meet you. I can’t wait to show you the rest of the images from your session.


Saturday I drove out to Fort Saskatchewan to take Melony and Paul’s Engagement photos. I think this was only my second time out there. It was a frustrating drive with all the construction on the way, but once I got there, there were so many cool places to take photos right by their place. The building above is sometimes used for fire fighter training. I look forward to photographing your wedding next July M & P and it was great to see you again and meet your cats!


Amber and Michael are getting married this coming February and I can hardly wait to shoot their winter wedding! We took their engagement photos in the river valley and it was such a fun time visiting and walking around taking their photos. They’re truly a beautiful couple in love.


After Melony and Paul’s engagement session I headed back into the city to photograph 4 week old Bella. She’s an adorable baby girl! I even got cuddles and she started to fall asleep in my arms before I left. This was definitely making me want to have another baby I gotta tell you. I photographed Reid and Jessica’s engagement session last year so it was lovely to see them again and meet their daughter. Sigh. I love newborns. Congrats Reid and Jessica on your sweet arrival!

I had the honour and pleasure of photographing little Lauren B in her home. She is such a sweet and beautiful little baby girl. Here are some of my favorites from our session together. Congrats Scott and Stacey on the birth of your delightful daughter! Big hugs to you all!

Tee hee. Look carefully. 🙂 Lauren’s dad made me laugh as I did not notice right away.



An inspiration for the belly button shot above is Sandra Boynton’s book about Hippos and Belly Buttons…you must check it out!!

It was soooo awesome to meet Baby Alexis and see how her older sister Olivia has grown!! Your girls are absolutely adorable and it was such a great time when you were over for your session. I always love visiting with you Shannon and I hope you and Al love these photos of your beautiful family.









It was a pleasure to meet little Avery and photograph their family. Congrats to you both, Brenda and Barrie!! Brenda is the sister to a good friend of mine from junior high and high school. Brenda and I hadn’t seen each other since high school so meeting again this year has been pretty awesome and special. I am honoured to be able to capture images like these! Here are some of my favourites from our session together. Avery – you are truly adorable and I love all your expressions AND cries!










Welcome Baby Riley C! It was so great to meet you and only 5 days old! I enjoyed visiting with you Jay and Jen and even photographing your awesome, energetic dogs. I still can’t get over how much Chance is scared of the camera. Riley you’re a beautiful baby boy!! Enjoy some of my favorites from our session. Hugs to you both!

Happy 1st Father’s Day Jay!







Riley’s very first wink!!


Very first family photo with the dogs!!

I had the pleasure of photographing 6 week old Bobby H this past weekend. He was an adorable and beautiful baby boy. Here he is with his lovely family. I think he may be a hockey player when he grows up. 🙂 Congratulations Rob and Rachel!!






Congratulations Tim and Tracy on the birth of precious Aiden! I was thrilled to meet him this week and photograph him in your home. He’s absolutely adorable! Here are a few of my favorites from our session. 


Big yawn!! 



I’m really really tired!!! Please stop taking photos! 🙂 I love his scrunched up face!


We listened to Aiden and he had a little sleep. 





Beautiful blue eyes.


Cute little smile.


The LOVE sign.
