Pink in the Park... | Calgary family photographer

As an only child I get such a kick out of spending time with big families. So much happening, so many personalities and so much fun!

This was my second time with this family (here’s the newborn session that started it) and I loved it as much as he first. Five girls and that little one… she has the cutest expressions ever. Seriously adorable.

(and this mom… she’s pretty amazing behind the camera so I LOVE the fact I get to catch her in some shots as well)

So familiar... | Calgary newborn photographer

I’ve spent a bit of time this week going through old movies and photos of when my boys were young… photos and videos I haven’t looked at in years. One of my favourite families just had a second child. I photographed their first son as a newborn, at 6 months and again at one year and just last week I had the honour of meeting their new little guy and photographing him. The two boys are 20 months apart just like my boys. Their oldest was born in July, just like our oldest and their youngest in March, just like ours. It was pretty neat watching the boys together and how they are as a family of four now. It was all so familiar. I remember how, after just a day in the hospital, I came home and suddenly my oldest (who had been my baby up until then) seemed so big. He felt big when I picked him up, he looked older… he suited that big brother role even though he didn’t quite understand it and how that new baby just fit into an existing family as though he was always there.

Another final session with one of my Baby love families. I love watching these kids grow up – from either just a bump or a newborn to a full on crawling, sometimes even walking one year old. It’s such a treat. You get to know the parents, the sibling(s) and watch them evolve as a family.

These two kiddos are just adorable and make me smile just thinking about them.
