Welcome Ashlynn

I first met this sweet family for momma’s maternity session. The kids were both so sweet and excited about the arrival of their new little sister, I could not wait to come back and meet number 3! As with all my in home sessions the rooms where super hot so baby would sleep well…but even though we where all sweatin, she wasn’t sleeping. Though she was asleep for almost the entire session, she was not crying or upset in fact I got a few wakeful shots of her peering at me and some very sweet little expressions…I will take that over a sleeping baby any day! I hope you enjoy this peek into Ashlynn’s session, and thank you again to this wonderful family for allowing me to come to your home and spend the afternoon with you.

Sweet Anticipation.

The Whole family is excited and waiting for a new little sister! Baby number 3 is on the way and momma will have her hands full but have lots of help from big brother and sister who spent the session showing momma’s baby bump lots of love…a few of those special moments I even got to capture. We set the stage for the sweet arrival by taken a few shots in the nursery and then moved out side. Aidan couldn’t wait to catch grasshoppers and Aubrey couldn’t wait to put on her pink cowboy boots. Such a gorgeous family with so much love, and so much fun to photograph. I can’t wait to come back for newborn photo’s, but for now here are a few of my favourites from this session!

Playing In The Rain

We only had one day to do our family session, so of course thats the day the sky decided to pour! And you thought Calgary was all out of rain. Right before our session it looked like the storm clouds had blown away and I was excited to get some great clouds in the back of our family portraits, but when we got on location it started to come down pretty hard. The girls were already dressed in their matching navy dresses and mom had already done a lot of bribing… they were disappointed. So what’s a discerning photographer to do?? Wipe those rain drops off your lens and quickly snap a few in the parking lot, thats what!

Turns out 2 year old girls are much more likely to allow you to take their picture when you tell them to go ahead and jump in the puddle. And t just so happens that when you give mom and dad a moment to them selves to sit under an umbrella in the rain, how absolutely magical and romantic that parking lots becomes. These images are not perfect, if you look closely you can actually see the thousands of train drops streaking across their faces and the fog blocking out what would have been my beautiful back lighting sun…but like I said there is something a little bit magical about these images and I hope this family loves them as much as I do.

Welcome Baby B.

Little Baby B gave me as much time with her awake as she did sleeping, and when I say awake I mean awake! Have you ever seen a 5 day old so engaging? Also it have me lots of time to chat with dad about our B.C interior roots while this little one had milk breaks. Thank you so much to this family for letting me crank the heat and get to know you!
