the happiest baby | Calgary baby photographer

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

A while ago I had so much fun at a shoot! Two babies and twice the fun!!! Today I am blogging little man C! I took his newborn photos… they are here! He was such an amazing easy going newborn to photograph and was the most happy baby at this session! Future model perhaps?

Ahhhh how cute is THIS!

Admit it… you’re TOTALLY smiling looking at this 😉

Hard at work 😉

Those eyes would MELT me… seriously it’s a good thing he’s not mine, I would be wrapped around his little finger!

Stinkin CUTE!!!

There is something about birthday parties I love. The people, the fun, the food (ok I mean cake lol), and the little birthday person. This birthday party was no exception! This little man turned one… and he is so incredibly cute!! His mom sure had fun decorating for the party, it looked incredible!

The little birthday man

He sure loves his mama!

Brother sneaking in some kisses… I don’t know if I have seen such a loving big brother before :)

Sisters with their two youngest

Some friends

And then CAKE time!!! Hello sugar high :)

And what would a party be without presents???? He finally got into it, right at the end!

One awesome family memory from this day…. took some magic to get this!

Happy Birthday! Thanks for letting me be a part of the big day :)

I love that I have been around long enough to keep getting repeat customers!!! This little guy was so super sweet at his newborn session!!! I was so excited because it was the first time I got thepose and he let me take so many more!!
He was just as wonderful at his one year old session as his newborn. A bonus for mom… there were no nakey shots so there was no fear of poop 😉

Today was such a random weather day…. when I left for the session I was SURE we wouldn’t be able to do it. We were meeting at Fish Creek and when I left home is was totally storming. Thunder, lighting, and some crazy rain. But…. we decided to try and we are so happy we did!! It was beautiful at the park! No rain at all, we were actually fighting sunlight at some points. When we were leaving the thunder (and mosquitos) were rolling in. So we timed it perfectly. He is so very cute. Thanks so much for letting me spend some more time with your wonderful family!! It was a pleasure seeing you all again.

We even snuck in a cake smash… OUTDOORS!! So completely awesome. He demolished that cake :)

Meet little Miss H. She had a big day today!!! It was her first birthday party!!! I absolutely loved every single part of this little girl’s special day. She was a total sweetheart and over the top cute! Her mom, well she should be running a party decorating business. I could not believe she did all the decorating and planning. It was absolutely beautiful in their house. It may have been snowing outside, but inside it was all warm and snuggly and cheerful!!

This session was part of my reality rocks contest. And it was perfect. What is more real than a birthday party? I absolutely loved being a part of this day, and I hope I get to do many more of these. It was amazing. Thanks so much!

Here is a tiny sneak… ok it’s huge. I can’t help it. AND it’s only the first few minutes before any of the guests arrived! There is plenty more to come :) Enjoy!!

Just up from a nap…….

Playing peek a boo…..

Their house should seriously be in a magazine. Gorgeous and the decorations were amazing!

Seriously cool cake!

Kids love me 😉

Time for a book before the big party! She loves books!

Gorgeous family.

Loving the lifestyle, loving the smiles, loving this family for my first run at a lifestyle session.

Thank you so much for such a great session, and being some of my biggest supporters :) You are wonderful and kind, helpful and generous and I have loved working with you since the first time I spoke to you. Even through e-mails I knew you were amazing Mrs A!!

Best picture ever 😉 LOOK at this face!!!

I adore this picture.

Oh baby feet. You are so cute.

Oh miss baby L… you are just too cute!!

Reality Rocks session #1 ~ Calgary baby photographer

Saturday, February 19th, 2011

It was so much fun to get together with this family again!!! I did their newborn session (twice) and was totally pumped to hang out for a lifestyle session. She had one of the free sessions during the Reality Rocks contests and we both were very happy!! I know how hard she was trying to win!!!

I haven’t gotten through them all, but I did want to post a few as I know A really wants to see some 😉 With switching computers it’s been a little slow going now, but it is going to be totally and completely worth it. The actual editing time is so much faster and once I get the keyboard, commands and stuff down I know it is going to rock out!!

We got some pretty fun pics of little miss L. Ones that just make you smile. I am trying to get used to lifestyle vs posed which I thought would be easy, but once I get to people’s homes I realize I do need some practice with it! I am so used to posing people! But it was an awesome session full of gorgeous images. I hope to do so much more of this… LOVED it and I LOVE the pics!

I need to apologize for the watermarks….. I have had to reset all my actions and putting the watermark on I didn’t lower opacity enough. Fixing it!

We did this exact same shot with her as a newborn!

Oh my how I love 1 year olds!! And cake. Put the two together and it is a session in HEAVEN! Mix that up with someone whom I have taken photos from since before he was born… and it was just pure sweetness.
Love this cute little baby boy :)

While there are still tons of pics to go through the smash ones were just too sweet to pass up! Thanks so much C for bringing him over and saying yes to the smash!!! He is over the top cute and as always it was an extremely fun sessions with you!

This one cracks me up. Every time I look at it!
The problem when mommy is an extraordinary baker is…. betty crocker just doesn’t cut it 😉
Everyone together now. Awwwwwwww.
What a good sport. Gushing cuteness.

The quirky smiles. Goofy grins. Messy faces.
Kids covered in paint. In glue. In dirt.

Running through sprinklers. Trying to tie a shoelace. Eating cereal for the first time.
A baby’s smile. Sitting up for the first time.

Mushy hugs. Messy kisses. Crazy hair. Crazy outfits.
Baking. Drawing. Playing. Singing.

Laughing. Dancing. Playing in the snow.
Painted nails. Hair done up. Dressup clothes. High heels.

Baths. Trying to dress themselves. Stealing cookies from the cookie jar.
staring out windows. Hitting the park.

My favorite pictures. The pictures that upon backing up my blog yesterday were the ones pulling at my heart strings. The ones I had to keep yelling to everyone ‘Hey come look at this one!’ until they just ignored me :)
THESE are why I started to get serious with photography. THIS is why I continue to do it.

The moments. Never wanting to miss one I started learning a camera. Wanting to capture a moment the best way possible I continue my journey. REALIZING that I want to give everyone pictures like these.

The other day I took pictures of my nephew. He’s eating food now!!! And holding on to toys… smiling and I swear saying hi to me…. I took them as he was. In his house….in a bumbo, his playmat, Kade’s arms, his mommy’s arms. And fell back in love with why I started this. Because I wish I had been doing this when my kids were this small… I have pictures but they are not like the pictures I take today!

besties. Well she loves him. And right now… he puts up with her 😉

I think this was his second or third day eating. He’s a pro!

I begged Auntie Mel to feed him so I could take pictures 😉
LOVE this!
This is probably her most favorite thing in the world to do.
It is a big deal when they can start holding toys on their own!!! The concentration on his face… love it!
He looks SO MUCH like Ro did as a baby in this pics it is unreal!
Lunch time :)
Chillin with mom. Super sweet.

So…. as part of my realization that I still truly love lifestyle photography…. there are going to be some pretty fun session give aways on my fb fan page. If you are not a liker already… I suggest you go and like! If you know anyone that is into lifestyle photography… please send them to my page! This is going to be super awesome and I can not wait to get started!

I had the pleasure of photographing this little girl when she was just a teeny tiny little squishy bundle. Her session is here . She was not sure about getting her photos done then… but finally gave in.

Today she was a little rockstar!! She was smiling and talking…. I can’t believe how much she has grown already! She still has that super adorable smile though :)

Thanks so much for bringing her back! I am super excited that I will be getting to spend a few more sessions together! It is fun to see all these babies grow up :)

She had definitely had enough at the end of the session… hope she didn’t cry all the way home!

Just love this family. So fun. And their little girl is so loved :)

LOVED the bucket! Talking and  smiling away…. such a cutie!

This coat was over the top cute!!!

I am such a lucky Aunty!!!

Because I have ADORABLE nephews!!!

I had 2 of 3 over today after school and Ry was happy…. so I quickly (and I MEAN quickly. Do you know how hoard it is to set things up while watching 3 other kids and PRAYING your daughter doesn’t smother the baby in the meantime is?) set up and snapped a few. Which was HARD. All the other kids were competing for his attention. We all just love him SO MUCH.

I was scared to look through the pics… my setup was ghetto, and he rarely looked AT me. Plus the other kids kept getting between me and Ry. But ooooh I love these!!
