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.

I can’t quite think of a better morning than one spent photographing a sweet mama and her babe in a gorgeous studio! Little Mila was having the time of her life, snuggling up on mama, exploring, eating the occasional cheerio and smiling big, beautiful smiles for the camera. Seriously, this St. Albert motherhood session was […]
When I first met this sweet family for their maternity session, I instantly felt like I was spending time with old friends.

We have had the cloudiest summer here in Edmonton, so when the sun peeked out for this gorgeous outdoor maternity session, I was all kinds of excited.

Every once in a while, all the elements come together to make a perfect session. This was what happened with this fam! We had a warm, sunshiny evening, a gorgeous backdrop and an even more beautiful family to top off this incredible session. Seriously, I could gush over these guys for days, but instead, I’ll […]
Ally and I spent our morning together strolling the lavender fields, playing on the playground by the lake and swapping mama stories in the summer sunshine. 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 […]
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 […]
