It’s pretty amazing to be able to photograph my good friends. There is something about capturing a family that I know, that I spend time with, that I adore.
Claire is a total bundle of energy so I was all ready to chase her around during their shoot. But she was amazing! Laughing and twirling and dancing, hugging her baby brother Gavin and just being her adorable self.
The Edmonton autumn morning was beautiful, the company perfect, and I’m smitten with the outcome.
You guys are a wonderful, beautiful family. I feel so lucky to have you for my friends.
Oh sweet Mr Tucker. He was such a lovely newborn to photograph! I reconnected with his mom (we went to jr high school together!) at her maternity session. It’s so fun to watch these baby bellies turn into little humans.
Thanks so much for bringing Tucker in to see us. I loved the props you brought along and we’re so happy we could incorporate them into the shoot. (Tucker’s initials are TSP – hence the teaspoon in the photos!)
I met Miranda and her mama this past summer when I was doing photos for Mommy Connections North. Miranda was an easy baby to work with – super photogenic and happy – right from the start. And her mom was so sweet!
I was thrilled when Emily contacted me to photograph Miranda for her one year cake smash. Her photo sitting outside in the flowers is one that still stands out to me among the hundreds of Mommy Connections photos I did.
Miranda was really serious the day of her session, but we put a book in her hands and she was a happy camper!
They also added in some family photos to the session, always fun!
Thanks so much for coming to see us guys. We had a blast! And awesome job on the homemade cake Emily, it looked pro.
Fall in Edmotnon is fleeting. The wind is strong and sweeps away these gorgeous colours a lot faster than any photographer would want. When the snow fell early September I thought for sure we were going to miss out on the beautiful autumn colours.
Mother nature was good to me this season.
Alex and Jeremy kept telling me they didn’t know what to do in front of the camera. I just kept telling them to be themselves, and the rest would take care of itself.
It totally did. You guys laughed and played and cuddled and I couldn’t have asked for anything better. Your photos are stunning, your company was lovely, and I can’t wait for your wedding next year. We’re going to have a blast!
Every time we met with Stan and Lyndsay the year leading up to their wedding, they were so laid back and chilled out, I got the impression their wedding was going to be really low key. Not a lot of fuss, not a lot of detail, just the two of them getting married.
Holy man was I wrong. Lyndsay spent the year doing SO many DIY projects to make this wedding exactly the way they wanted it to look. They drove into Planet Organic and bought their cream in the pretty glass bottles for a year so they could use them in the decorating. Seriously, so many beautiful, tiny, impeccable details. And every time we talked to them, it seemed like there was barely any stress. I really love to see that – a couple enjoying the time they’re engaged, really getting into it and having some fun.
Wishing wands, burlap, pearls and a typewriter, this girl thought of everything.
Their wedding day was warm, sunny, and so relaxed. Even when the limo broke down on the way to the ceremony, Lyndsay laughed, took a drink of bubbly, and waited for some wedding guests to come rescue us all.
I met this family through the small Edmonton grapevine. I’m so glad they found us. We chatted as moms, which I always feel so lucky to do at so many of our sessions. I learn a lot from my clients, and I’m so grateful we can swap wisdom and support one another.
Meeting Brynn was wonderful! She was so cooperative – sleepy and lovely.
Congrats to you all, I can’t wait to photograph your family again!
I’m sure I write this every time I blog about this family, but I just love them. The more I photograph people, the more comfortable they get with me. The more comfortable they are, the more they act like themselves – laugh and play and show me their real smiles.
My biggest goal as a photographer is to follow families right from their weddings, into having kids, and as their family grows. I feel so honoured that this family has allowed me to do that.
Fall in Edmonton, beautiful family, and big, big belly laughs.
