Welcome to the World Olivia

This little ball of cuteness was born on Nov.11, and still looks newborn at 2 and a half weeks old. Her parents traveled from Norman Wells, Northwest Territories to have her in Edmonton, and then from Edson to have her photographed by me. What a treat for me to meet her, and she's so alert as you can tell by the family photo. Thanks for coming all this way Michael and Sabrina it was so worth it! Also thanks to Carla Babiuk, who used to live in Drayton but now lives in Norman Wells, for telling them about me :)

Kendra + Rick = Engaged!

Despite the super cold weather, I had so much fun photographing these guys. Kendra emailed me about their session saying they had some silly cat in the hat shirts they wanted to wear for a few shots. Immediately the old Dairy King in town came to my mind. The owner was so kind and even let us warm up inside. I know it doesn't look cold judging by these images, but really it felt like it was the coldest session I've done. I was glad to have found one mitten in my van. We had tons of fun, and I think Kendra saw about 3 people she knew drive by during this:) Congratulations on your engagement Rick and Kendra, and good luck with all the planning etc! And thanks for letting me be creative with your session. Off to pay my fine.

Nadine and Ryan = Baby Tucker

This little guy is a perfect mixture of both mom and dad. We were planning an outdoor session, and we were planning on doing it NO MATTER WHAT! I really love how "Christmassy" the outside ones are with the falling snow! Luckily for us it wasn't even that cold. Thanks Nadine and Ryan for having me out to your place, and letting me photograph you:) There are more pictures to love just as much as these coming soon to your online password protected gallery.

Cutie Pies

When you've got two super little girly girls, you get a super cute little family! We decided to do an indoor session for this one, because it's getting soooo chilly outside. We ended up having so much fun that I stayed for 2 hours. I got to play around a lot with Hannah, the big sister, while waiting for the baby to wake up from her beauty nap. I loved it! Of course it helps that Hannah is such a ham in front of the camera and wanted to show off all of her dance outfits, and perform her dance skills. She's gonna be a rock star when she gets older. By the time Baby Peyton woke up, she was smiley and happy as can be. She sits up all by herself, and she's the same age as my baby Vaughn almost, only a few days apart. We ended up being able to go outside as well for a family picture, which made baby Peyton less smiley due to the chilly conditions. I love how they all turned out. Here are several from the session. Thanks Amanda and Kirk for having me photograph your super cute little family!

One Big Happy Rowley Family

Here's another session that I photographed before my holiday. This was about the last day that there were fall leaves still around. Good thing I got out there when I did, or there might not have been any left. You might remember the kids from previous posts on my blog, I've done pictures for them a few times now and it gets more fun everytime! Aiden was having his birthday pictures this time, so I got to spend a few minutes playing with him in the woods on their beautiful land. Thanks for having me out to your place Mamie and Jay, you have a really nice family! Thanks Kathy for hiring me:) I hope you guys love these as much as I do.

Schwalbe's :)

So, yes I'm back in town and I have a session to share from a month ago. These guys have waited ever so patiently while I went to Vegas, with their session posted with no password. But I love the pictures, so I hope it was worth the wait. Here are a few from their session, we went to the Omniplex to start to shoot in the fall foliage and also to a back alley to get some "urban" scenery also known as the "ghetto". Thanks Christa and family for hiring me, it was super fun!

J May Fam

This will be the last post till the end of October. Glen is competing again in the World Long Drive Competition for his second time in Mesquite, Nevada, which is 1 hour from Vegas baby! So I'm hoping to hit up Vegas a couple of times to go shopping. Should be fun. Here are some sneak peaks for you Jenna, before I leave for two weeks.
If you want to hear a heart wrenching story, this little guy was in open heart surgery 3 weeks before I took his picture. What an amazing little trooper! Jaxon is a brave little man that is for sure. He braved the cold more than I did I think. I thought for sure we'd have to shut it down and go inside when to my surprise, Jaxon sucked it up and let me photograph him like a champ! I had such a great time, these guys were up for anything, and even thought to bring Jared's sweet hot rod for some shots.

I thought I would share the email that Jenna sent me after the session, it really made my day:

"We had the best time with you on Sunday. It was such a wonderful experience. We both felt so comfortable with you and that always is a huge thing when you are getting your photos taken. Your an amazing photographer and really put your soul into your work. I could tell that once you spent that couple hours with us. All the best I will be checking out your blog I love seeing the new ideas that come about."
-Jenna May

Thanks Jenna, I had so much fun too! I love it when people are up for being creative!

Sweet Baby Girl

I can't believe I just about forgot to post some from this session. I was just so quick getting the proofs ready for her, that I didn't blog anything from it. We ended up staying inside for most of this session, it was chilly outside for pictures. I'm always so happy when mom's can be talked in to being in a few of the pictures, it's just so fun to see the baby light up with mom, and mom's hardly ever get pictures of themselves with their babies, because typically mom's are the one's taking the pictures. So, if you have a session with me in the future, be prepared for me to ask you if I can photograph you as well:) Thanks Jen, your daughter is a total darling!
