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. […]

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 […]

Often one of the most honest ways I can find to tell a story of love and connection is through the hands. Without the person even knowing they are doing it, their hands can show tenderness, concern, admiration and energy. The best part is that often the people I’m photographing don’t even know that I’m […]

Lifestyle Newborn Photographer Edmonton My hope is that one day baby Felix will look back on these images from his lifestyle newborn photo session and will see that he was surrounded by such love from the moment he arrived. I’m talking about heart melting love from his 3 older siblings and his super calm parents. […]

Before our newborn session… Before any newborn session, I meet the parents-to-be in their home so that we can get to know each other a little bit before they welcome their new love and their lives are forever changed. I generally try and plan the meeting for 3-4 weeks before the expected date of delivery […]

I literally do a happy dance each time a prospective client sends me an inquiry, but when that prospective client says she really just wants some family photos that happen to have a baby in them I do an even bigger happy dance. You guys, this is my jam. Less posing, more living, lots of […]
