1st Birthday Photoshoot: Sneak Peek

Absolutely loving the fall colors that are out right now. The beautiful weather we are so lucky to be having is allowing me to have some nice evening shoots this week. This little pumpkin had her first birthday today and we took some family photos to celebrate. She was a bit serious for the shoot but she is totally adorable! Here are a couple faves .

Smeets Family: Lifestyle/Maternity Sneak Peek

Love these belly shots from the other night. The light, the smiles, the beautiful colors and that sweet belly! Thanks Andrea and Kurtis for having me out to your amazing acreage. Doesn’t she look gorgeous!? She’s having a bit of a tough time mobilizing near the end of her pregnancy but she was a trooper and managed to get out to the field for these shots. I was thrilled!

Baby Cohen: Mini Lifestyle Shoot

Got to hang out at the Blixt residence on the weekend and snap a few pics of them enjoying their new little bundle. Carter wouldn’t sit still for more than 3 seconds but I still managed to get a few of him smothering his new brother Cohen with love in between his rants about trains. Sully was on guard as usual.

It seems like just yesterday that Jolene and I were getting acquainted as we tackled a few Saskatoon bridges on some lovely fall runs. 4 years later our visits involve a lot less exercising and a lot more eating and toddler time outs but I love our friendship and how it has evolved. She is a life saver and someone I can always count on for a listening ear, caring advice and most importantly a laugh when I need it the most. She’s definitely one of the most hilarious people I know. I always tell people that it feels like I have known her all my life because that’s the kind of friend she is. I am so blessed to have her in my life and therefore was completely honoured to be able to care for her as she gave birth to little Cohen (she rocks at that too by the way). I’m talking a lot about Jo here but I am pretty darn fond of Curtis too. Together they make a great couple and parenting team. I am super happy for them as they start their new journey as an adorable family of four! (sorry, five including Sully)

Malcolm Familiy: 2013 Lifestyle Session

As I am preparing today to go shoot this lovely family again, I realized I never got around to sharing their last summer’s amazing lifestyle session.  I feel like this special family embodies all of what I love about shooting.  To me this shoot is EXACTLY what I strive for at all of my sessions – carefree, relaxed, fun, spontaneous and beautiful light! I love that just following them around through this corn field brought out so many different emotions and expressions.  Their interactions with one another are what I love to capture.  Of course we tried to get a few posed shots but most of these were completely natural and organic.  Juanita and Todd are amazing parents and such friendly, giving, beautiful people that I often find it hard to keep focused on the task at hand because they are so interested in my life and asking me a million questions (lol, love this by the way! not a bad thing!).  And of course these children are absolutely adorable, trust me they’re just as cute in real life!  I have had such a busy year and I often find it tough to prioritize posting blogs near the top of the list but I wanted to share this shoot both because I love it so so so much, but also as an example of what YOUR family could have if you book me for a lifestyle session.  I know the Malcolm family cherishes these memories and I can’t wait to see what we come up with tonight now that the newest addition to their family is here (she was just a little bean in Juan’s tummy this night!).  It’s going to be fun!!
