Karley and Adam

9 November 2013 | Couples

Karley is the type of girl who doesn’t know how amazing she is. She’s brilliant, beautiful, so much fun, and has a heart as pure as gold. She also happens to my cousin, which I’m so grateful for. She has spent tons of time with Callum, so he came along to get a couple of shots with her.

Karley just finished her first degree, and she’s onto her second. Even though she’s straight back into school for her masters, we needed to celebrate her accomplishment!

Her wonderful boyfriend Adam came along as well, since he’s all kinds of awesome.

I love you both and I’m so lucky to have you. Congratulations on your degree my dear, I’m so proud of you.

The Millers

7 November 2013 | Family

Gemma got in touch me with to capture their beautiful family, which is what normally happens, I chat with mammas who want to make sure they are in some photos with their kiddos, because moms are always taking the photos – right?

We all arrive – and Gemma’s husband, Brad, says to me: “We went to high school together!”

Gareth: “Of course you did.”

He hears this phrase, I would say, 80% of the time we go anywhere. Northside Edmonton is a small world, O’Leary is a massive school. This is the result!

We had a blast with you guys. You’re a lovely family, your little bundle of energy was SO much fun, and we really hope to see you again soon.

Lots of love,

Let’s Get Messy

30 October 2013 | Personal, Children

Our routine needed to be shaken up. It’s easy to get caught up in the same old.

The solution? Food colouring, fun shaped ice cubes and jello.

I coloured the ice cubes and made a pan of Jello. I added WAY too much food colouring but it still came off afterwards . I was sure the boys would look like rainbows when we were done!

I brought the paddle pool into the kitchen, we stripped the kiddos down to their diapers, and let them lose.

Toys are fun, but I want Callum to use his imagination. To play and explore and try new things. To find amusement and fun in things that may not be ordinary.

Such a fun afternoon. Thanks for coming to play Jax!

Remember Forever

21 October 2013 | Personal, Family, Children

He’s moving and crawling and standing and busy. He’s curious and inquisitive and (most of the time!) he’s happy.

He’s already growing in a flash in front of my eyes, and it’s baffling and overwhelming to watch.

But when we snuggles in like this, I just want to stop and savour and remember forever.

The Stones

19 October 2013 | Family, Children

This little miss was one of the most alert newborns we have ever photographed. It took some work to get her to sleep, I think she just wanted to explore the world!

Her little brother was busy and excited and played with all of Callum’s toys during the shoot. Such fun!

You have a beautiful family guys, thanks for coming to see us.
