Edmonton Christmas Minis Nov 25 & 26, 2017

1G6C6536 edit blog.jpg

Two days ONLY —  November 25 & 26, 2017. Christmas mini sessions will be at my studio, conveniently located off the Whitemud and Anthony Henday in west Edmonton.

  • Sessions are 20 minutes long (appointments scheduled every 30 minutes, participants must show up on TIME). 
  • Up to 4 children per 20 minutes. If you have more children, please book two back to back 20 minute time slots.
  • And NEW this year — I can take bookings for families!  Yay!  There is a catch. My set can only accommodate families with small children, as the children have to sit on their parent’s laps. 
  • These sessions are also meant for those that are able to sit up on their own. Babies under six months old would have to sit with mom or dad for support. 

The style of this Christmas set up is perfect for pajamas or a Holiday outfit! You can also bring a Christmas book or toy for your child’s photo. I will have a few props on hand.

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.

Edmonton Family Photographer * Gooding Family

I’m so happy the Gooding family suggested the bushes behind their house for their family photo session, because the light through the long grasses  was perfect.  There is definitely something different with the Autumn sunsets. Or maybe its because it sets so much earlier, we get to see it in its full colour punch. I am glad this particular Fall was so long and warm.  The Gooding family have the cutest little blue eyed boy. He was quite the little ham. Lots of smiles.

Edmonton Maternity Photographer * Shauna

My maternity session with Shauna was done at the end of October in 2015. We has such a warm Fall that we were still able to outdoors without toques and gloves. Normally there is snow on the ground, especially close to Halloween. The kids have to pick their costumes to be able to fit over snow suits. Sad. But not this year!  Shauna was expecting a little boy and she wanted some photos of her in the Fall colours with a maternity gown. This is not something I normally offer, but I do have some connections for dresses. Shauna was open to location suggestions and I was glad she she said yes to this cool tree near my house. I drive by it almost every day and thought it would be an epic place for photos. I love the way the sun shines through the leaves.  Shauna delivered her baby early and I met him in November of that year. Baby Theo is the sweetest little baby.

Edmonton Extended Family Photographer * Steffler/Voogd Family

Fall was pretty much over when I met up with this extended family for a photo session. It doesn’t last long in the Edmonton area. All it takes is one or two days of wind to blow most of the leaves from the trees.  There was a spot near their home in Stony Plain that still had some leaves on the trees. Thank god for the Mountain Ash trees with their beautiful leaves and red berries!
