I cannot even tell you how excited I was to finally have Parker in the studio for his newborn session. And after spending his first 28 days of life in the hospital, I’m pretty sure his parents were happy to visit as well:)  After meeting Cynthia during another session over a year ago, I finally met Nick during their maternity session. All I can say is that Parker is one of the luckiest kids in the world to have these two as parents, and I really hope Parker gets to visit the studio for many many more sessions <3

I am not sure there is anything I don’t love about this family. They are loud, funny, laid back, sometimes a little crass. Most importantly is that they are friends and no matter how their family dynamics have changed since I have known them, there is always one constant: the love each of them has for one another, even if it sometimes feel like they want to ring each others’ necks;) And not just that. They take that love and are always willing to help out anyone they can.

Gowell family, thanks so much for another fun session!  Regardless of how windy and cold it was, you guys were just as amazing as always. Enjoy your sneak peek!

I think Ashley has been trying to get Miles to actually schedule this session for at least two years, and finally this past weekend we were able to make it happen. And thank goodness that I like a challenge when it comes to kids, because Zach really wanted nothing to do with having photos done. Any plans for specific poses were thrown out the window almost immediately and I’m pretty sure Ashley was convinced that the whole session was a bust. Lucky for her, I found a few shots that I simply adore<3

If you have been following my blog at all, then you already know this little guy’s family and most definitely his big sister, Izzi. But just in case you need a refresher, I photographed his parents’ engagement, their wedding (here and here), his big sister’s newborn session and a few more (here, here and here) including her one year session! It has been an honor to photograph so many milestones for this family and I cannot imagine not ever having met them….even if not all of them think being photographed is very fun;) Ryan James was a bit like his big sister was for her newborn session, but I love me a challenge and we still managed to get a few great shots!

When I first saw that Stella Grace had been born via my Facebook feed, I knew I just had to get her in the studio. Not only did Miss Stella have the most amazing head of hair, but I have known her beautiful mama since she was a toddler!  It had been quite a few years since I had seen Tara and her own mom, so it was so much fun catching up with them while snuggling and photographing this adorable little bundle<3

Of all the families I photograph, it seems that 99% of them book their sessions when their kids are fairly young. What is it that makes us forget that family photos at every stage of our kids’ lives are important? Thankfully, Cindy is a mom that totally gets it. Although, it may have been just a couple years since their last session, the important thing is that even though their little guy is now a big eleven year old (complete with a man voice now) they still made a point to make this session happen. We had so much fun exploring the property at the Arsenal and laughing at Spencer whose eyes disappear when we gives a “real smile” and who was so excited to tell me he is the proud owner of a “Canadian King” size bed;) It’ll be a long time before he hears the end of that one, eh?

Kris, Cindy and Spencer, I am so glad we were blessed with some amazing November weather for your session and I had a great time hanging out with you guys for a bit. Kris and Spencer, it is always fun to have you guys randomly venture off and come up with your own poses too!  Here are a few faves from your session:)
