Spring Maternity|Stather

This is another family that I have been so lucky to hold on to throughout the years of growing from a couple of two to a family of four. I photographed engagements for Crystal and Chris years ago, and since then they have turned into a family of four with two absolutely gorgeous little girls. And while this session was before the arrival of little Miss Claire, her sweet and hilarious big sister totally stole the show with this shoot. Keep scrolling to find out why and I guarantee you, you will be smiling and laughing out loud!

2019|Shoot and Share Contest

 

As I mentioned in a previous blog, I entered a huge contest called Shoot and Share. I entered again this year and went all in with 50 submissions from over my year of photographing all of my amazing clients.

 

This is the biggest contest that is held over the year with a jaw dropping 583, 150 entries this year. Photographers from all over the world enter every year and I am so excited that I had the opportunity to participate in it. The talent is amazing and I have learned so much from just looking at others work and knowing exactly where I want mine to be. We have just entered round 7 which means we are officially in the top 30% and I know I have at least 1 photo still in there floating around somewhere. SO Exciting!!

 

I went in with a full heart and a heavy hand on my decisions going back and forth adding and removing and re-adding selection after selection until I finally came to my final 50 choices. I chose photos that made me smile and laugh until I cried remembering every moment I spent photographing families, weddings, friends old and new.

 

I have loved every second of spending time with all of you, meeting you and finding new friendships. I chose photos that made my heart soar with memories and love and photos that made me feel all the feelings I have in me.

 

I truly want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for trusting me with your memories as you grow together, I couldn’t be happier that I got a chance to be part of it.

Spring Maternity|Stather

I’ve been shooting this family since before they were a family. I have loved watching them grow in every sense of the word. I was so excited when Crystal told me she was expecting another baby this spring, so we planned for a maternity shoot, which was quickly taken over by little miss madam! We were absolutely killing ourselves laughing over her posing her self and just kicking her feet up in my little chair, completely uncoached. Tears just rolling down my face as I shot image after image of her setting herself up. I love sessions like this where I feel part of your family and I get to capture these hilarious, happy delightful moments. Miss S – don’t ever change that darling personality of yours, it will take you far!

Winter Maternity|Bader

I can’t believe this session was a year and a half ago! I met with Nicolette and Sam during one of the craziest weather systems we’ve had in a really long time with long periods of fog leaving THE MOST AMAZING hoar frost you have ever seen. It was a photographers winter wonderland dreamscape and I wanted to take full advantage of it. It took Nicolette a little bit of convincing but I got her in the end and the result was nothing short of gorgeous!

Newborn|Arias

I met with this family almost a year ago, it’s hard to believe how quickly time passes. They were super sweet and totally laid back and all my kind of weird humour. Easy to say I loved them immediately. Their sweet baby girl was no different and slept throughout her entire session, I remember laughing as her parents were like she’s never slept this long in her 7 day life…sooooo do you nanny…at night…so we can sleep. This was one of the last posed newborn sessions that I have done as I will be switching over to a lifestyle type of session.

Winter Maternity|Viczko

It’s been so long since I’ve blogged a session. I’m pretty sure its been almost a year, time to get back into the swing of things and show you a little more of my work and what to expect when you book me for a session!

I met with Brittney and Shawn after many emails back and forth and instantly fell in love with them both. They were troopers trekking through really wet slushy snow but the end result couldn’t have been more perfect!
