I have been photographing this beautiful mama and daughter since Amélie was just two weeks old, and each time it's so much fun getting to see how much she's grown! This St. Albert motherhood session was so special - it was documented in celebration of Amélie's first birthday, which truly is, in large part, a celebration of Carike's first year of motherhood.

This meant lots of sweet snuggles and quiet whispers as mama spoke to Amélie in the most soothing, nurturing way. It also meant lots of kisses - my favourite to observe, as Amélie loves to grab her mama's face and go all in! It was truly magical watching mama and baby love on one another, and it was a pleasure getting to capture this special time for them.

Endless hours spent pouring over Etsy to find the perfect, hand-crafted mobile; innumerable evenings spent laying on the couch, rubbing your growing tummy and scrolling Pinterest; and many, many dollars spent bringing your vision to […]
My dearest Sophie Rose,
Right now, you are asleep on in my arms. Your favourite place to be. You’re having a hard time sleeping comfortably, as your tummy works hard to digest the milk, and seem happiest when you’re tucked into mommy’s chest. So here we sit. Nearly 5:30 in the morning […]
There’s something extra special about watching a family welcome their newest family member after spending some time getting to know the family. Watching baby Clara’s adoring parents and sweet big sister love on her was so special, and made me feel even more excited to watch my own little one become a big sister this […]
