Meet the M. Family…
It was exactly a year ago that we met for family photos and I chased (tried to keep up with) Cassey while she giggled wildly. She’s still on the run! Their family has expanded by one beautiful Lab.
They make pretty amazing guardians for sweet Cassey.
Cassey has the best personality, I adore her to bits. Better yet, she talks a lot now!
It was quite the challenge to get the dogs looking my way, but luckily we managed to get a few shots. 🙂
Cassey’s parents are patient, loving, and balance one another out so well. Perfect couple
At the very end of our session, the rain settled in. Today we have a fresh blanket of snow on the ground. I’m thankful we were ahead of the weather as they travelled for their session.
Thank you so much for another wonderful session. I loved spending time with you all.
Meet our friends, the P. Family…
Our family’s have known one another for years. We’ve been planning this family shoot for quite some time. They’re from the Grande Prairie area and with the logistics of timing and travel, it just didn’t work out the past couple of years. I was excited when I heard they were travelling my way, and we decided on the date.
The day of their session came and we were graced with gusting winds of 40km/h. Either way, this session was happening after all that travelling. It’s not easy getting a family of five ready for photos! We made due with the wind, found some sheltered areas, cozied up with blankets, and had fun with it. The kids did amazing!
These adorable kids are so polite, kind, and smart. The boys wanted to show me just how strong they are….
The boys are so loveable with one another…
They are going to be great protectors of their sister, isn’t she a sweetheart?!
I asked them to bring along any items that are special to the kids at this stage of their lives. K. brought along his very treasured blanket, which he named “Hemi”.
Thank you so much for coming to see me! I loved spending time with you all. Looking forward to a longer visit in the future. 🙂
Mélissa Zizanis is an amazing face painter. I was invited over to a birthday party at a friend’s house to capture Mélissa’s face painting talents. The kids sat perfectly still as she expertly painted each of their faces, and they were so proud to get their photo taken after.
The beautiful birthday girl…
They wanted matching faces 🙂
I was so impressed with her wonderful way with kids and talents that I invited her to my daughter’s birthday party. She was the highlight of the whole party! The kids had a blast. Thank you so much Mélissa!
This is my happy girl, proudly posing on her 8th birthday…
and her friends who loved the whole face painting experience…
I think the expressions of pure happiness on all the kid’s faces are a true testament to what a great artist Mélissa Zizanis is! I highly recommend booking her for your next party.
She also carries temporary glitter tattoos.
To book her services in the Edmonton and surrounding area simply e-mail Mélissa: melissa.zizanis [at] gmail.com
Thanks again for making my daughter’s party so memorable!
Meet the beautiful M. Family…
This lovely family are also my new neighbours. Welcome to the neighbourhood! My kids are so excited to have more friends to play with.
They shared with me that this was their very first family photo session. I’m so happy they asked me to photograph their family.
I love it when families bring their much loved pets to their session; they are a big part of the family. This pretty puppy was all too happy to pose perfectly. It’s as if she understood just where to stand at the right time. 🙂
Sweet sisters who have a best friend for life in one another…
Thank you for the amazing session, see you around the block! 😉
I’ve had the honour and privilege of photographing Maya and her loving parents since she was a baby. I’m not sure how I lucked out to have met this special family.
One of my favourite things about Maya are her many faces; she gives me a variety of expressions throughout our time together. Love them all!
A shot from our first session together, and our latest session…
Maya sure is lucky to have such uplifting, loving, encouraging and supportive parents…
And she was blown away by the sheer force of her own giggle…
Thank you H. Family for yet another awesome session! And thank you Maya for bringing along your favourite doll “Boots” who was my very important lighting assistant. 😉
