When I first met Oliver his huge brown eyes and spunky little personality won me over. His mom was pregnant and they were in the final stages of waiting for the fourth member of their family.

Enter Mabel, Oliver’s squishy, adorable baby sister. At just 5 days old she had cheeks and little rolls that make moms swoon.

These sessions were part of my BabyLove package. If you’re expecting and want that first year captured, send me a note ♥️

When I first met this family they were a family of three (and one on the way). Then they welcomed a new sweetheart of a girl into their family and all of a sudden their baby became a big sister. I love watching families grow!

Chasing the sun | Calgary family photographer

I’m still in awe every day of how beautiful it is out here. There are so many gorgeous places within less than an hours drive. This past weekend we headed out towards the foothills and stopped at a couple of spots you’d easily miss on a typical drive. Climbed some small snowbanks, trudged through the snow and chased the sun until it disappeared… not an easy task for a pregnant mom and young kids but they were troupers. Here’s a peek at their session…


*and I’m lucky enough to see this family two more times as part of my baby love package. Three sessions, digital files and a gorgeous hardcover book. Contact me for more information if you’re expecting… it’s a pretty sweet deal!
