Such a happy family FULL of smiles :)

And then….. WHAM… hello gorgeous eyes!

another baby makes four! | Calgary newborn photographer

Thursday, April 5th, 2012

18 months ago I had a wonderful session with a very amazing family. You can see little miss L’s photos on this page . We had a very tricky newborn session the first go round, so we turned one session into two and got some great shots of her!!
Then I did a more lifestyle approached session (they won one of my contests for a reality rocks session)for the whole family, those shots are over here. That was also an awesome session full of giggles and laughs.

And now… they are introducing the newest member of their family… little Mr.E!! He is entirely too cute, and was much more into getting photos done than his sister was!! Such a wonderful family, I am truly lucky to have many clients turn into such wonderful friends.

Thanks so much for bringing the whole family over for some pictures, and thank you for the birth announcement I just got! Mom has some crazy design talent!

How awesome is this family’s attire! Love it :)

She loves me now 😉

I can’t even describe how much I love this…..

And just one more of the proud parents…. love these images.

out to steal hearts | Calgary newborn photography

Monday, January 2nd, 2012

This little man is definitely out to steal your heart. He is so very cute, I could hardly stand to let him leave my house!!! He’s going to have people wrapped around that little thumb in no time!! You could see he already has Mom and Dad – hook line and sinker :) Such a beautiful family, so glad I had the pleasure of meeting you and the newest member of your family.

This has to be one of my favorite fabrics I have gotten recently. It looks amazing… the perfect baby boy blue :)

Mom brought this hat… isn’t it cute!! Bet it looked great for Christmas!!
