It’s that classic newborn shot that every family wants. Your sweet little baby all swaddled up and fast asleep. And so, I make it my mission each and every newborn session to ensure I get a great variety of swaddle photos for you. Choosing a fun swaddle can be a great way to bring some […]

Last week my husband made Egg Roll In A Bowl for dinner. It’s one of our favourite quick weeknight meals that can be made from start to finish in less than half an hour. 90% of the time I make it, but this time, I was working, so my husband made it. I sent him […]

I can so vividly remember being pregnant for the first time and attempting to hold my pants together with a hair elastic for months until my belly made it very obvious that maternity clothes were a necessity. It was on a snowy Saturday that my Mom and I went on an adventure to find me […]

Although I photograph a lot of first-time parents, it’s actually very common for me to receive an email that goes something along the lines of: This is our second baby and we also have a toddler who is VERY busy. For our first baby, we did newborn photos in a studio, but we cannot even […]

You did it! You’ve just had a baby. Phew! But now….. Now you have to look presentable for photos. WHAT? 😱 You’re still getting into a routine, have no idea which way is up, feel like your body isn’t your own and have eaten eggs for the last 6 meals. (Ok, maybe the egg thing […]

“How long will it take you to edit this?” It’s a pretty common question that I get, but….the answer isn’t an easy one. It isn’t easy because every session really is different, but also because, if we’re talking about what goes into a session, it’s so much more than editing. So! I thought it might […]

It can be hard. Really hard. To resist the pressure. To not want to be bigger and ‘better’. To not jump on a plane and fly to Iceland because the landscape is amazing and the mist is calling. To not wish for the most beautiful sunset in a flowy wheatfield with a picture-perfect Alberta sky. […]

the gear that is in my camera bag for a newborn or family photo session

May 22, 2019

One of my favourite aspects of photographing in the style I do is that I’m able to travel incredibly light. I think sometimes when you think of a photographer you imagine lights, backdrops, tripods and reflectors…and, yes, some photographers DO use all of those things, but not me. When it comes to my photography, I’m […]

Not to get too cliche on you, but seriously, once you have a baby, time really does stand still and fly by all at the same time. I truly didn’t understand this until I was in the thick of motherhood. Sometimes it can feel like you’ve been trying to get your kid to nap for […]

I have a serious love of combining old and new. My house is evidence of that – my walls are lined with vintage photos and mementoes combined with images I’ve made within the last year, and seeing my family’s history sitting right next to my own kids makes my heart happy. The love of combining old […]
