    Growing with the S. Family

    Every year on the same week-end in September for the past 4 years, I have had the privilege of capturing our friend’s family.   This year it was a little different as they have a new addition to their family!

    Meet little D.!

    Isn’t he cute?!

    When I first laid eyes on little D., his big sister B. came running up and planted a big wet smooch squarely on his forehead.  She has taken on the role of big sister quite nicely, and shows her love to D. in such gentle and loving ways.

    Here is the S. family…year 4 behind my lens!  Thanks for meeting with me again.  It has been so amazing watching your beautiful family grow.

    Complete Family

    I met up with the G. family for their family session. This session was particularly special for their family because with the birth of adorable little E. they are now a complete family.  You may remember their maternity family session.   Baby E. is such a blessing, and big sister J. is so good with her!

    Sweet Little L.

    My cousin had a baby boy!!!  I was so excited to capture every angle of little L.

    He has the most beautiful eyes, and he’s so alert!  Mom and Dad couldn’t be more proud.

    Congratulations to you both, I’m very excited to have a new baby in the family to cuddle.

    This moment happened right after little L. stripped down into his birthday suit.  It never fails, someone always gets peed on during a newborn session!

    Welcome Baby Sawyer

    You may recognise this family from other posts.  I was honoured to capture the next exciting chapter in their family love story.

    0__176bw web

    Meet their new addition.  His name is Sawyer.  He’s 6 days old!

    0__226 web

    His name has great history.  His roots have been traced back to Mark Twain the author of  The Adventures of Tom Sawyer .  I’m sure he will live up to his name and provide many adventures for Mom and Dad.

    He was also 10 days overdue, and because of this fact, he was born on his Great Grandmother’s birthday.  Lucky baby boy. Big sister Addison is so tickled with her new baby brother!

    I can’t get enough of her blue eyes.

    Exploring with K & B

    I met up with K. & B. for a morning of running through the leaves, hiding in the tall grass, and exploring the secret path that leads to the wishing rock (one must have an imagination when exploring with toddlers!)  They are a couple of cuties, and so full of curiosity and energy!

    Thanks for spending the morning playing with me!

    Running with the D. Family

    Sometimes family session evolve into something that I hadn’t envisioned.  I love it when that happens!  There is nothing better than when moments just magically happen simply because a family is playing and having fun together.  This was one of those times.

    Meet the D. Family. You may recognize them from other posts.  I’ve been photographing their family since little R. was a newborn.  The best part about being a photographer is watching love and life grow and change.

    On the Farm with the H Family

    Meet the H. Family.  Melissa was one of the first people I met when I moved to Leduc.  She is so much fun, and so is her beautiful family.  I had a great time hanging out with them at their farm; complete with dogs, a horse, and cows.  Around every corner there were interesting lines, weathered buildings, and fences.

    We have a new addition to our family!  Meet Teddy!

    sept15__094 web

    We have waited a long time to welcome a puppy into our home.  My daughter Tessa told me one day that she wanted to be a Vet when she grows up.  She added that she would also like lots of children and would for sure let them have a dog.  😉

    For a couple of years now, I’ve been keeping an ear out for the right pet for us.  I didn’t just want to find a dog, I wanted to find our dog.  I knew that everything would fall perfectly into place if it was meant to be…and it has! I took these photos when my other two boys were at school.  I’m sure it will be tough to get a picture with the boys and Teddy, because they run steady when they are together playing fetch and chase (Teddy actually chases the boys, runs away, and then turns on a dime and chases them again).

    He’s perfectly imperfectly ours and we love him.

    B. & G.’s Connection

    My heart is loving capturing the love between Couples this summer.

    B. contacted me to capture their last photography session before they welcome their baby into the world. B. is 15 weeks pregnant, and although they do not know if they will have a boy or a girl, I think it’s safe to assume babe will have some sparkling blue eyes!

    They have been married for 7 years now, and they are very excited to start another chapter in life.

    This is B. & G.’s connection…

    Tammy’s Spirit

    My talented friend Amy and I got together for our second Your Spirit session. Your Spirit sessions are all about capturing the spirit and beauty found within every woman.

    I treasure the photos I have of my parents through out the years, and adore the photos that truly capture their spirit.

    Amy and I are so excited about the chance to capture the spirit of women for those who love them most.
