Rebuilding in Progress

If you have visited my blog in the last couple of weeks, you will have noticed there are no photos of my sessions. Just a bunch of posts with  the same picture saying I need to update my 3rd Party Service provider.  For the last 10 years I had been using Photobucket to host my blog photos, because it was free. Yeah yeah I know. Free never stays free. And it didn’t. Overnight, one day in June, Photobucket broke the links for 10’s of millions of photos and sent out word that we had to pay for their highest level of service before they would restore the links. Myself and millions of other long time users were shocked and very upset. So I am now trying to rebuild my blog by uploading the photos again through MyFotoJournal, which hosts my blog. This is what I should have done in the beginning. In the meantime, please visit my Facebook Page for the latest photos. This will take a long time to fix.

Ps here is an updated photo of my little family. This was from the last few days we had with our little dog, Shadow.

Edmonton Newborn Photographer * Theo

Theo is the adorable baby of Shauna. Looks at those lips!  He arrived early and was the first babyb that got to try out some of my newest Christmas newborn baby props! Theo was amazing to work with. Premie babies often are. So sleepy and so perfect. He woke up at the very end for some photos with mom.

Edmonton Twin Cake Smash Photographer * Tessa & Damian

I have done a lot of one year old cake smash sessions in my many years of being an Edmonton Newborn and Family Photographer. However I have never done a cake smash with twins.  Tessa and Damian were my first and they were perfect. Tessa was all business with the cake and Damian was all smiles. Check out the very last photo. Cake destroyed.  Sign me up for more Edmonton Twin Cake Samsh sessions!  It was fun.

Edmonton Newborn Photographer * Gracelynn

I normally book my newborn sessions in the morning because babies are generally sleepier since they spent most of the previous night awake. Well I should have listened to Rachelle when she said Gracelynn is sleepier later in the afternoon. Many Edmonton newborn photographers are apprehensive of photographing newborns later in the day as they have a habit of being crankier and harder to work with. Again, I should have listened to mom Rachelle when she told me Gracelynn was usually awake in the morning.  She did sleep through the family and sibling photos (look how big Gus is now) and we did another version of the sibling photo from Gus’ newborn session with a special teddy bear representing their big sister Gabby, who passed away.
