Edmonton Portrait Photographer…Motherly Love

Just a few photos I’d like to share today that feature just a few of the amazing Mothers I’ve had the privilege of photographing. This is by far just a small taste of the hundreds of sessions I’ve photographed throughout my twelve years of being a photographer ….but these photos stand out to me and they are the perfect display of love …. motherly love.

If you’ve spotted yourself in one of these photos …. and feel you need updated ones … feel free to contact me and we can schedule a session. My summer calendar is filling up quickly and I’d love to get together with you. You can contact me here for more details.


Edmonton Engagement Photographer: Leanne and Rob

It’s officially countdown for Leanne and Rob…..their wedding day weather will be extremely opposite to the weather we experienced at their engagement session (ha ha let’s hope!) but they were still great at making the most of this fun chilly afternoon.  We were sure to include their adorable furry friends in a few photos too. Congrats Leanne and Rob….I’m happy to feature your photos today!!!

If Leanne and Rob receive 20+ comments on this blog post they will receive a complimentary gift.

If you’d like to see more of my engagement and wedding portfolio, you can view it here. And if you’d like to get together to chat about your upcoming wedding day you can contact me here.


Edmonton Children’s Portrait Photographer: Tannis and her twins

It’s been a while….exactly 4.5 years since I’ve seen these adorable little twins…. I met them when they were just a few weeks old and photographed a beautiful in-home newborn session for this lovely family.  Now here they are older, cuter and so sweet. I loved hosting them in my new Edmonton home studio a few weeks ago, and I’m thrilled with these beautiful cuddly moments with their gorgeous mama.

If you’re interested in a “mama & me” session I’d be happy to host you in my studio.  Contact me for more details and you can always view more of my portfolio here.

Little Lily Austen….just 11 days new and loved by so many already. I was thrilled when Chantelle and Matt told me they were expecting. I photographed their 2009 wedding (back when I was pregnant with baby#2 [of 3] for me) and I knew they’d be great parents one day. Fast-forward….and here we are!!! I’m so happy for you guys! CONGRATULATIONS!!! Thanks for visiting me in my new studio space too. I loved catching up with you and meeting your adorable baby girl.

Edmonton Family Photographer: Jace’s 6 month in-studio session

Another family of five…..seems to be my jam lately…..

A few years ago I had the privilege of photographing Larissa and Craig’s engagement session, wedding, their first girl’s newborn photos, and now here I am still recording milestone moments for them as we documented their little boy, Jace, baby#3 at the adorable age of 6 months. His older sister’s Laila and Char totally adore him.  It was a blast hosting them in my new Edmonton studio; the light is gorgeous and my place is always prepared and ready for kids to have a blast. I’m so happy with how your photos turned out Larissa and Craig – can’t wait to see you again this summer.
