What An AMAZING Year!

Wow - I cannot even believe that last year at this time, I had just bought a new camera body and was playing with the idea of taking photos of other people. This year has brought so many blessings, lessons and amazing experiences with friends, family and new clients. I am so unbelievably grateful to each family I have had the opportunity to work with and to those who valued my work enough to refer me to their friends and family! From the bottom of my heart - THANK-YOU for helping make my dream a reality. I am so excited to see what 2015 will bring!! <3

He melted my heart.....


Sweet little Kaysen's session started out a little rocky, but after lots of snuggles by his gorgeous Mommy and me (best job ever!), he fell into a deep sleep and was a dream to photograph!! :) Thank-you Kimberly for the great visit and for the opportunity to photograph you and your perfect little man! <3


The Power of Advertising

I recently started advertising my photography as a business and am so happy with the response!! I placed an ad on kijiji and set up a facebook page and within a few days, I had booked a family session and 2 newborn sessions (this one being one of them)!

 I got to meet sweet little Abigail when she was just one week young. She was so alert during our session and such a sweetie!

What a stunning little family! <3

I am so excited at the prospect of turning my love of photography into a business. I love that I learn something new at every session - everyone is different and I love experimenting and interacting with my clients, whether they are newborns, children or adults. This could possibly be the most wonderful, rewarding "job" (I don't even want to call it that because it feels like so much more) I have ever dreamed of!

A Mother's Day Session

Instead of flowers for Mom this year, Jess contacted me to find out if we could do a Mother's Day photo session instead - and what a lasting gift it was! On a chilly spring evening, we had a photo date and here were the results. What an absolutely lovely family they have - they were a pleasure to spend some time with!

I thought this was such a great idea for multiple generation photos. Had to try it - LOVE the finished product!!!

I found these photo frames in my Mom's basement and thought they could use a touch of color. I'm really happy with how they turned out.

Grandma and her grandbabies.... Gorgeous...... <3

Just another day in the office.. :)

 How could I not love this job?! Sweet baby Brylie was a joy to work with. He was so alert for a good chunk of our shoot, but once he fell asleep, he was out! Such a strong little guy too - at just a week old, he was already holding his head up when he was on his tummy!!

If you love this hat (as much as I do) and want to whip one up yourself, you can find the free crochet pattern HERE!

This little turtle shell pattern can be found HERE. Note: I made the hat with this pattern and it was tiny. I have kept it for the teeny tiny babies, but made another hat using THIS pattern (instead of bulky yarn, I used 2 strands of my Bernat Satin)....

And this super adorbs pattern can be found HERE! Note: I crochet quite tight, so I started my ring with 2 extra stitches and modified a few other things (sorry, I don't remember what else I changed), but this hat turned out WAY too big for a newborn!! Maybe someday I will figure out hat sizes for babies and children alike!! Maybe not.... ;)

Oh, I love baby's teeny little hands in this pic!!!


Congrats Kirsti and Vincent on your beautiful baby boy. He is perfect in every way.... :)

It's a small world....

I am so blessed to have met (and re-aquainted) with such wonderful people through photography. What an amazing shoot this was - it was fun, it was emotional, it was the reason I want to do this. And I totally get my baby fix by playing with these sweet little people for a few hours!

I LOVE this rotation!!

And I get to combine my crafting loves - I made this little owl hat for my niece, Hadley, but as it turns out I crochet very tight and it is just the right size for a newborn! :)

I love this close up collage idea....
