Summer Catchup

I get behind in blogging and updating my website. Facebook is updated often and this gets forgotten sometimes. Sorry. 

Summer is winding down, with only a couple of sessions left until Autumn hits, I figured that it would be wonderful to do a post combining spring and summer. 

I have been busy, and it has been lovely. Really, I cannot wait to see more beautiful faces and capture more memories. 

I hope that I'll see everyone in Autumn!

Winter Baby - Edmonton Stylized Child Photography

Do you recognize this baby? I was lucky enough to photograph her when she was a newborn (as well as her big brother and many family sessions!) and she came to visit me this winter to do a special styled shoot. 

Isn't she just the sweetest little angel?! Thank you for bringing your smiles and giggles!

Planning - Edmonton Photographer

Oh winter in Alberta. These things we all come to know, and having lived in this province my whole life, come to expect. The unseasonal warmth we recently welcomed didn't last, but who amongst us really expected it to.

I have spent much of the past month in Edson, sledding and getting trapped in massive amounts of snow. It's been fun. I'll be returning there soon.

For many of those that I know, the big problem with winter is the cold and the snow. I understand, especially when the temperatures drop and playing outside becomes dangerous. Even my camera stops working when it is far too cold.

That all makes the winter lonely, picture wise. My head is filled with ideas and people long to go adventuring, but sometimes we must wait for spring. And surely, with the recent warmth and light bursting through our windows, the longing has increased greatly.

We plan our gardens, and hope for May flowers. We dream of June weddings and the fall of cherry blossoms. We see life exploding before our eyes, we float on seas of greens and sky blue.

Booking is always available, even when the weather isn't cooperating. While you dream of sunny days ahead, travels to far off lands, adventures with loved ones... we can plan to capture memories of your family just as they are. We can create a magical world for your children to be immortalized with. Let us dream, and plan, and create. Let there be a chance to see in yourself all that you are, all that you could be.

A Little Bit Of Holiday - Edmonton Family Photography

I love these two.

Sometimes saying much else is hard. I do love them. I've been friends with them for awhile now, though exactly how long I won't say.

And on this day, we decided that we needed a little Christmas. So out came the ornaments and into the very blustery day we went!

I won't show more then this for now, I wouldn't want to ruin any surprises for holiday cards. but we did have fun decorating the trees and stealing freshly baked Christmas cookies.

Christmas Mini Sessions - Edmonton Family Photography

I know, I know, it's not even Halloween yet and here I am telling you about Christmas mini sessions. Please believe me, I do understand. Though sometimes things need to be planned in advance. Like Christmas cards. It won't be long now before we are knee deep in gift shopping and the pace of the mail system will show why it's often called snail mail.

This will be the last mini sessions I offer until Spring. And they'll be holiday themed! I'll be bringing along props and setting up some decorations to give a holiday feel to your images. Perfect for gifting, cards, and to just spread that joyous feeling throughout the season!  

November 16th and 17th.  

Taking place the Mactaggart Sanctuary.

Spaces must be booked in advance.  

Available times each day:

Pheonix Reborn - Edmonton Portrait Photography

"There was a silly damn bird called a phoenix back before Christ, every few hundred years he built a pyre and burnt himself up. He must have been first cousin to man. But every time he burnt himself up he sprang out of the ashes, he got himself born all over again. And it looks like we're doing the same thing, over and over, but we've got one damn thing the phoenix never had. We know the damn silly thing we just did."

Oh Mr. Bradbury, how your words inspire my creativity. That quote is from the novel, Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.

If you've never read the novel, firstly, get yourself to a library or bookstore! It's set in a dark future, one where firemen start fires instead of putting them out. They burn books and the government considers them to be dangerous things. But one fireman changes everything.

“We're going to meet a lot of lonely people in the next week and the next month and the next year. And when they ask us what we're doing, you can say, We're remembering. That's where we'll win out in the long run. And someday we'll remember so much that we'll build the biggest goddamn steamshovel in history and dig the biggest grave of all time and shove war in it and cover it up.”

Princess In The Park - Edmonton Child Photography

Princess Mini-Sessions were this past weekend and gosh did we ever have fun! The clouds were gathering and threatening rain but it stayed away just until we were done.

This lovely Princess was wonderful! Just look at that smile! She twirled in bubbles and had tea on the grass.

Ladies At Tea Time - Edmonton Child Photography

Three little ladies met on a hot summer day. Together, under a leafy tree, they enjoyed the shade and a lovely tea time visit. What better way is there to spend a hot day?

This styled shoot was a collaboration with Alyssa Warner Photography   and it was so much fun! You can view Alyssa's images from the shoot on her facebook page. To book your own styled session, send me a message using the Book Your Session page!
