I absolutely love when we get to document couple's lives. Since the moment these two got engaged, we have been privileged to photograph their special moments in life - and am proud to call them friends! Meet their newest addition - the beautiful Gabrielle!
I had the pleasure of photographing two sisters who happen to be pregnant at the same time. They wanted to cherish their precious moments together with a splash of awkward 80s portraits. These two are amazing; it takes confidence to showcase your true beauty through the awkward photo lens. I hope your Christmas is filled with lots of snuggling by the fire, belly patting, whispering secrets to each other, and braiding each other's hair.
White Trash Maternity Session
I've had a few requests to see the white trash maternity photos we did one Christmas - so here they are in all their glory! Making a comeback.
It was a typical post-Christmas-family-gathering-feast where everyone is sitting around the living room in food comas... All of a sudden Brandon decides he wants to try on my cousin's hair extensions and behold what unfolded! Meet the true Flynns - our inner beauty revealed. Merry stinkin Christmas.
Garrett & Karla – Edmonton Maternity Photo Session
Remember that freezing cold week a month back? With wind chill it was around -46 Celsius. Well this was the week of Garrett and Karla's outdoor sunrise, maternity session. There was one day where it was supposed to warm up a bit and we had everything planned. I was all bundled up ready to leave the house when Karla phoned me. All I heard was pain- in a panting, breathless voice...
"Karla are you in labour?!"
"No, I just have back spasms so painful I can barely breathe, let alone get into the truck. I've been trying for 20 minutes. We HAVE to do the shoot today because Garrett is going out of town again until the baby arrives. I ju ...
Neve is one
Happy first birthday Neve! This darling turned one and celebrated by breaking into Mama's closet and playing with all the stuff she's not supposed to get into. A one year old girl's dream.
Meet Jax. At just 11 days old, he was just as handsome as he appears in these photos. Look out momma!
I had the privilege of photographing the dear MacKinnon family again. I got to shoot their maternity session, photograph their sweet newborn Elliotte at a few days old, and now again a 6 month old mini-session for their first Christmas as a family. I love working with them - they are so much fun and so photogenic! Enjoy your first family Christmas!
Cheesy Christmas Photos
Cheesy Christmas photos are back! I pulled out the box of sweaters and I couldn't resist dressing the kids up. My friend's son was here and poor guy had to join in the fun. I think he loved it - hence all his solo glamour shots. ;) Our son, on the other hand did not see the humor in wearing that sweater... I couldn't even get pants on him. And how do you make a cute little baby girl look cheesy? So hard - every outfit I put her in she just looked cute! Hope the enormous poinsettia headpiece did the trick.
The requests for Christmas family photo sessions in Edmonton were stacking up so I thought I'd try hosting an afternoon of mini sessions. It was a great time and I think I will start to make it an annual event - this is part I of III.
Meet the Coughlins! It was an honor to spend some time with the family of the woman who has birthed both of our children. Heidi Coughlin is a midwife here in Edmonton and has been the best thing that could ever have happened to us with delivering our children. She helped us obtain our goal of undisturbed, natural births for our family. We could never thank her and her family enough for that! ...
