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. 

Watching the beautiful bond these two share is quite something. I love watching a mother and child interact so naturally with one another, and my big inspiration for this session was to just allow these two to be, exactly as they are. 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.

We met quite a few years ago in Cold Lake, and have since both become mamas and close friends. She is one of those mom friends who you can […]

One of my favourite things about lifestyle photography is getting a glimpse at the behind the scenes, real life moments. I always ask if there is anything special that mamas like to do with their little ones that could help personalize a session and truly capture the memories that you’ll want to remember forever. When […]
