My girls…a new school year

I can’t believe another summer has flown by so quickly. I only brought out my “big” camera once this year for my own girls …. and I’m so glad I did. I captured these adorable photos of my girls a few weeks ago and I’m having a hard time deciding which ones to print out for our walls. My sweethearts. My beautiful girls. My everything.


Edmonton Maternity Photography – Shaylene expecting

Have I mentioned lately how much I’m in love with these mini “mama only” in-studio maternity sessions? Well….I AM! I’m constantly learning and challenging myself creatively in this business and I’ve found my happy place. It might be partially because I love my new studio space and the gorgeous light … it might be because I’m a strong advocate for maternity photos (as I only ever had them professionally taken for 1 out of my 3 pregnancies and wish I had taken some with baby 1 & 2) … and it might be because the mamas I’ve been attracting for these kinds of sessions totally get my vision and bring the cutest wardrobe options … EVER!

But enough about my hopes and dreams …  I’m here today to feature this gorgeous mama-to-be … Shaylene (and her amazing hair) and her adorable baby bump!

Shaylene is a winner from my Maternity Photo Contest I held a few months ago and her and I hit it off like we had been bffs for years. We even discussed hair products, styles and fav styling tools… ha ha!   The session was so much fun and I’m thrilled to feature these photos for you Shaylene.
