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.
There’s something a little extra special about including grandma in motherhood sessions; after all, so much of what we know as moms we first learned from our own mothers. So when Ayla asked to include her mom in her motherhood session, I was so excited! We spent the morning running around grandma’s yard, picking flowers, […]
On the night you were born, the moon shone with such wonder that the stars peeked in to see you and the night wind whispered, “Life will never be the same.”Because there had never been anyone like you… ever in the world. – Nancy Tillman I had the pleasure of capturing this beautiful family’s first […]
I did so many motherhood sessions over the past few weeks that, while I’d love to share each and everyone, I may end it here just for now. My final session from back home was a sweet one; Maggie was one of the very first people I met in Cold Lake, and it was lovely […]
This session was such a dream to capture! Little Jacob didn’t take his beautiful blue eyes off of my camera and his big brother was such a sweetheart, with the perfect mix of loving up on his baby and showcasing his true, silly self! I loved the sweet outfits that Dinah chose for herself and […]
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 […]
Started off my weekend of Motherhood sessions with these two gorgeous ladies. Briar Rose was absolutely loving the camera and made my job the easiest thing in the world! Thank you for inviting me into your home to watch you love on your sweetie pie, Tamara! Hope you enjoy a *few* of my favourites from […]
Part two of Harper’s first birthday session is just as beautiful as the first! This little sweetie loved her time in front of the camera with mom and dad, and may have loved her birthday balloons even more! Happy first birthday, Harper!
“Motherhood is a choice you make everyday, to put someone else’s happiness and well-being ahead of your own, to teach the hard lessons, to do the right thing even when you’re not sure what the right thing is… and to forgive yourself, over and over again, for doing everything wrong.” – Donna Ball I feel […]
What better way to celebrate a very special first birthday than to fill baby’s crib with balloons and feed her cupcakes!? Well, Addison may not have been so sure how she felt about the balloons, but she sure loved the cupcakes! In fact, I’ve never seen one devoured so quickly! This sweet one-year-old is so […]
Not only did I get to visit with sweet baby Cadence at just hours old, but I also got to capture the Deschamps family in their first few weeks at home. Cadence’s nursery was beautifully decorated by her mama, inspired by the classic Peter Rabbit stories. Handmade touches, such as quilts lovingly sewn by grandma, […]
