My friend had another baby!!! This is baby #3 for a family we just love!! And finally….. it’s a BOY!!! He was so cute and so easy going, his shoot was a dream!
We were all so impressed with how he handled the shoot, we were convinced it was the best shoot ever. And then…. his sisters ran in and TOTALLY stole the show. Seriously, laughing, giggling, posing and checking the LCD they were all over it. Which was a shock considering how hard it has been getting Miss S to want to be in any photos pretty much her whole life!
Then we knew it was really the best shoot ever.

Thanks for bringing your family over, we all had fun! Even in the craziness of having 4 other kids running around causing chaos!

His aunt made this awesome hat and the blanket was his own. Made for some gorgeous pics of the little man!

This beautiful hammock was made by my cousin’s MIL in Winnipeg! I bought a bunch of cute hats and chunky blankets from her while I was out there! And I am ordering some hats for Ro and Kade for the fall and winter this year :) You can find her facebook page here . Go ahead and like it! She makes tons of original items and can custom make pretty much anything you can design! Her prices are not to be beat, I had a ton of fun shopping.

The chunky blanket here was also made by The Crazy Hatter. Isn’t he adorable????

Mini Session Special!

Friday, August 26th, 2011

I am so very lucky and excited to be attending a workshop in Red Deer!!! It is with the amazing Laura Brett who is someone I complete admire. I am so excited to take my newborn photography another step farther!!!

To celebrate I am offering mini sessions. These sessions are a pretty sweet deal if I do say so myself ๐Ÿ˜‰
I need 8 confirmed spots to go ahead with them, but they are filling up quickly! If there are more people interested I will definitely open up another day! They will be held on a Sat or Sun in Sept. The dates are Sept 10 and or 11 OR Sept 17 and or 18. The dates will be confirmed once I have the required spots. We will book for the 10th or 11th, but if weather does not agree we will move the dates to the 17th or 18th. Also if more people want the 17/18 I will just book for then! Right now I am taking down preferred dates from anyone wanting these sessions and will go from there!
