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.
Can you do a newborn photoshoot yourself? Well, it depends. If you’re hoping for just a few photos of baby on their own and aren’t very picky about the end result, then you absolutely can. It’s even possible to get sibling shots, or one parent and all the children together. Again, they may not be […]
Fall is one of the most popular times for family photos. And for good reason.

In this article, we’ll talk about three reasons why […]
Being an Edmonton maternity, newborn and family photographer for the past 4 years, I’ve had the pleasure of documenting many big milestones in my client’s lives. From first babies to third babies. Watching them grow in mama’s belly to taking their first wobbly steps. And every big milestone in between. Working with returning clients, building […]
As an Edmonton Newborn Photographer, I know first hand how stressful your newborn session can seem. But it doesn’t have to be. I work hard to help my clients prepare for our time together long before baby even arrives, so that our focus can be on capturing that beautiful bond during our session. All of […]
This Edmonton maternity photography session was straight out of a photographer’s dreams! I met Michael and Cathleen on this gorgeous summer night for the first of their four milestone sessions.

As an Edmonton Newborn photographer, I love getting to witness families grow. Big sister Amélie was one of my first ever newborns and now here we are, just a few years later, documenting sweet baby sister Anouk. I have had the pleasure of photographing the Fouché family from their first, hazy days as a family […]
As an Edmonton maternity photographer and mother myself, I know first-hand how easy it is to convince yourself that pregnancy does not need to be documented. After all, your body has changed and stretched and become unrecognizable. You feel tired and swollen, and anything but glamorous. And yet, when you pause to marvel at the […]
Starting a business is hard. In fact, I’ve had a few jobs in my lifetime, and aside from mothering my two strong-willed daughters who are mini, fiery versions of myself, I would argue that building my photography business– with no business knowledge whatsoever– has absolutely been the hardest job I’ve had. If I could go […]
