A morning at home – Sherwood Park Family Lifestyle Photographer

family lifestyle

The Rilkoff family. They have my heart – they are such a dear, dear family. I offered them the idea of doing a lifestyle session at home. A day in the life photography session…  I wanted to capture them doing real life together.  A favourite style of photography – family photojournalism.  I asked them to keep it real; present the best side of their everyday life.  Leave the messes, soak in the morning together, and enjoy the present.

As I pulled up bright and early to their acreage outside of Sherwood Park, Nadine let me know their alarm never went off and they were still in bed. PERFECT. Well they didn’t think so, but I got to let myself in the front door and sneak into the house before anyone woke up. A real morning session with their family! A typical morning of drinking coffee, eating breakfast – while mom eats breakfast standing, fighting, eating toothpaste, playing together… and even a bit of being sad as it happened to be the morning they lost their dog, Rex. Broke my heart to see their son looking out the window holding a box of dog treats waiting for him to come home… such a bittersweet memory.  But what an oh-so-beautiful, genuine story of their life. Enjoy.

Fermaniuk Family
As I was driving out to this family session in Fort Saskatchewan, I was wondering how I was going to keep the attention of a family of seven.  But as soon as I met their smiling faces I knew this family was special.  What a beautiful family and wonderful children!  I had a lot of fun working with the Fermaniuks and was glad to capture a bit of their lovely chaos that is life. :)  Who knew they were so acrobatic?! Leave it to your brother to photo-bomb your time in the spotlight (not to mention he demanded to wear the coolest outfit ever for the photo shoot)  
Little Elliotte was an absolutely perfect little girl.  I just love her name!  Watching her parents adore her made for such a wonderful session.  Congrats on your precious blessing and enjoy your new life as a family.
Davies Family – Edmonton Film Photography Session
The Davies family have a love for the art of film photography.  They approached us to see if we would shoot their family session with a few film shots and the more we thought about it, we thought let's make the jump and shoot it all on film. We love shooting film, but have never shot an entire session on film before. As unnatural as it felt to leave all our digital photography gear at home, it was so refreshing to simplify our bag with a few rolls of film and a few old cameras.  We photographed this session with a mix of 35mm, 120mm, and even a roll of expired film from 1974.  It really brought me back to why I love to shoot film - it makes y ...
