Eleanor | Edmonton Newborn Photographer

Eleanor is already 5 months old and she has changed SO much! She’s smiling and cooing and becoming such a little lady already.

Her parents are dear friends of ours and it was an honour to have them in our studio. They told us it was so different to watch us work inside, with their new child. They have watched us while we shot their wedding, their family, and their maternity, but they said it was really different in the studio. That was fun to hear!

Thank you for bringing her to us, and allowing us to document these first precious days.

The Red Boat | Edmonton Family Photographer

Project 52 | Week 23 | New

This wooden boat was built long ago by father and son to sail on the sea. It brought many years of joy; it was precious to that boy. But as it goes, the boy grew up and the boat was stored away. It collected dust for many years, until that boy grew to a man, and had his own son.

Grandad pulled that boat from storage and blew off the dust. It needed a fresh coat of paint that was lovingly applied. It needed new sails that were sewn and restrung.

The boat was sent on a whole new voyage, across the ocean, to the other side of the world where the man who had once sailed that boat as a boy, now lived with his son.

This old wooden boat feels new again, as it now sets sail on a small Alberta lake.

Edmonton Engagement Photographer | Trevor and Tarah

Tarah and Trevor are one of those couples that make you instantly comfortable. They’re both really lovely people, and really made me feel like I was hanging out with friends.

We spent a bit of time with their daughter, and after family photos she headed off with her grandma.

We talked a lot about their wedding plans, upcoming this year in Edmonton. I’m so excited to see their plans come to life.

Thank you so much for being so much fun, so awesome, and for spending the evening with me. I can’t wait for the wedding!

Edmonton Wedding Photographer | Cody & Felisha

We started off our 2016 weddings with a bang! Holy Felisha planned an amazing wedding.

The details, the decor, the planning…she thought of everything. She dressed up the Old Timer’s Cabin with magical twinkle lights and decorated mason jars.

I’m so glad they went with a First Look before their ceremony. Cody still got to experience the anticipation of having his bride walk to him, and they were calm and relaxed during their ceremony.

The wedding party was a great group, thanks guys for welcoming us in and making the day so much fun. It was a really great day, we had a blast with everyone.

Here’s to an amazing wedding season in Edmonton!

Edmonton Family Photographer | Maria and Milano, Mommy & Me

The perfect Mother’s Day gift for this photo-loving mama!

We had a really fun afternoon playing with bubbles, walking and picking flowers. I really love seeing these kiddos that I photograph grow (we photographed Milano when he was born, you can see it here).

Thanks for the lovely day friend xox

Edmonton Newborn Photographer | Max

We spent some time with Max and his lovely parents last summer (time flies!). They found us through some really amazing clients, who turned friends, who moved away (and we miss them dearly!). Always, always grateful for referrals and for our clients sending us their lovely friends.

This Max and our Max are really close in age, so it’s really fun that they were both red heads when they were born. (our Max has since turned bleach blond).

Thanks so much you guys, we really loved meeting you and your whole crew.

Edmonton Wedding Photographer | Kurtis and Melissa

I don’t know why, but blogging weddings is really intimidating to me. It’s a ton of photos to cut down for a small snippet of the day, and when there are emotional connections to photos I always want them included!

I’m going to do my¬† best to get our weddings from last year up before this year’s are ready to blog…I dont know if it will happen but wish me luck!

I remember being excited about Melissa and Curtis’ wedding, but holy man when I walked into the reception my jaw literally dropped. The building from the outside was so ordinary, and we were transported into a Paris themed wonderland the moment we stepped inside. Melissa’s mom told me Melissa had been collecting items to decorate her wedding with for years…YEARS! That is amazing to me. Seriously worth it, it all came together in the most stunning display. Who knew we could feel like we were in Paris after driving through rainy St. Albert!

On top of all of that, Melissa rented out The Little White School in St. Albert for some of their photos, since she is a teacher. It made for a unique spot; I love when our couples think of ways to personalize their day.

Your wedding day was gorgeous. The people in your life fun. We had a great time with you and Im so happy we were there to celebrate with you.

Congrats guys!

Edmonton Child Photographer | The White Sessions

It’s just them. Just the boys. No fuss, no muss, no distraction.

I can’t even tell you how much I love having this comparison to see just how much they have changed in the last year. I think we are going to start offering this as a mini session to clients periodically so you can see the change in your kids too.

What do you think, anyone in?

Edmonton Engagement Photographer | Sarah and Braden

If you know me, you have probably heard me say “everything happens for a reason”. I know it can’t apply to everything, but a lot of the time, things work out the way they’re meant to.

Sarah & Braden and I went to 2 different parking lots the night we were meeting, and my phone wasn’t working properly so we ended up starting their session a lot later than planned. But the light was perfect and the evening was warm, so even though we started a bit frazzled, we settled in quickly and had a great night.

We’re traveling to Saskatchewan next summer for their wedding! The location looks beautiful, we can’t wait to shoot somewhere new.

Thanks for the sun night you guys xoxo

Project 52 | Week 22 | Perfectly Imperfect | Shauna

This crooked dock holds a ton of memories for me, and it brings us an incredibly amount of joy.

I had promised myself I wasn’t going to use an iPhone photo for this challenge, but that’s the camera I had with me when it was utterly still and this amazing reflection happened, so an iPhone camera is better than no camera, right?
