Wee man Patrick | Calgary baby photographer

As part of my BabyLove package, I see babies anywhere from two to four times during that first year. They change so much month to month, it’s a great way to capture them. And I know I’ve mentioned it before but that 6-8 month stage has got to be my absolute favourite and just a simple, at home shoot with the focus on the baby is the best. Sure the rest of the family is included in the session, as with all of the sessions, but at this stage, babies are so cute, cuddly, and expressive that a simple session allows me to focus on details and expressions. Here’s a peek at Patrick’s session…

Happy New Year!

After a bit of a social media hiatus, I’m back! Hope everyone had a great holiday and I’m looking forward to getting 2018 started. I tried choosing just a few favourite images from the past year to post but had a hard time so here’s a few more than originally intended, along with a huge THANK YOU to everyone for taking the time to read or check my work out online, trust me to create photos for you and your family and for all your support.  ♥️

Amelia | Calgary newborn photographer

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!

(I can’t help but think she was hoping for a baby sister in that last photo, and she got her wish…)

Changes | Bragg Creek family photographer

Why is it that when our children are young we capture their every minute. We want to record everything they do. Every cute expression, all the new things they learn, all of their firsts, their friends, their toys. I have albums full of our boys when they were young but something happens as they grow up. For me it was when they were about 8 or 9, the number of pictures I took slowed way down. Don’t get me wrong, I still take photos of them but not near as many as I used to and they’re usually while they’re doing sports or playing an instrument. I rarely pick up my camera around the house anymore or capture them when they’re with their friends. Maybe it’s because they’re not as cute any more. Maybe they don’t want to have a camera in their face 24/7 like they used to… they’re more insecure and more aware. But they’re still growing and changing and I have to remind myself to take pictures because I know in years to come, I’ll want to remember these days just as much as the younger years.

A month or so ago Gillian wrote me and said she wanted a session before her son went off to University. A relaxed session with her family before one of the biggest milestones in her son’s life. Why is it we often overlook this age? It’s so important to keep documenting your family as it grows and changes. Maybe it takes a bit more planning with busy schedules and a bit more effort on everyones part, but it’s so worth it.
