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 Newborn Photographer * Baby Lucy

Newborn Lucy was the perfect little East baby! I met her when she was 8 days old and soooooo calm. Mom and dad lived in a downtown Edmonton high rise — an amazing location and proximity to the river valley and the Alberta Legislature grounds. I was a bit jealous as I used to live in the area years ago, before I had my own children, and moved to the suburbs. High rise apartments and condos so pose somewhat of a challenge for me and my mobile Edmonton newborn photography studio — because of the elevators, security doors and smaller spaces. But all I have to do is rearrange a bit of furniture and I can make it fit. I used to fear using studio light, and fought learning it for years. Now I can’t live without it and panic somewhat when I have to use natural light. Lol. But I have a look that I want for my clients, and that is what they want when they hire me to be their Edmonton newborn photographer. Lucy was such a gem during her newborn session. Smiling in her sleep, holding the little carrot in bunny ears and giving some beautiful awake photos with her mom and dad. She was so calm.

Edmonton Newborn Photographer * Baby Charlize

I’ve met some wonderful people in my years as an Edmonton Newborn photographer. And I’ve crossed paths with people I’ve grown up with and people that my husband knows. This was the case with Charlize’s mother. They know each other through the Edmonton Spring Board diving scene. It’s fun learning about the connections that people have and how we are all so interconnected. And not just on Facebook. Baby Charlize had the cutest little round face and puffy cheeks. Her big brother wasn’t keen on photos. I did managed to sneak a few when he was distracted by an iphone. You gotta do what you gotta do. Toddlers have their own agenda.

Edmonton Baby Photographer * Mommy Connections West

So many happy babies with the February 2016 Mommy Connections Edmonton West group!  We has just missed Valentine’s Day, so the mom’s opted for me to bring my neutral cream coloured backdrop.  Even though the weather outside was winter, the light background and pastel colours that many of the moms chose for clothing, made it feel like Spring would be arriving in Edmonton soon.
