Edmonton Christmas Minis -- November 23-25, 2018

Christmas Minis 2018 blog.jpg

Three days ONLY —  November 23, 24 & 25, 2018. 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.

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 Family Photographer * McAdam Family

I first met Jody and her little guy through the Mommy Connections program in Edmonton. She has since moved away with her family to Calgary. Out of the blue, I received a message from her, asking if I ever travel south and if I would consider doing a photo session with them. Crazy enough we were going to be in Calgary the following weekend!  My children get an extra couple of days off in November from school, so we like to go away somewhere with them. Not enough time off to go far away, but Calgary is perfect. At any rate, I was able to book a session with Jody’s family along the Bow River.  This was a new experience for me. I like to scout my locations ahead of time, but it just wasn’t possible this time. Thankfully Google Street View exists and I remotely chose a cool place for our family session.  This cute family will be on the blog again coming up!  They have had a busy few years — getting married and welcoming a little girl. I photographed some formals after their wedding and a cake smash with their daughter.

Edmonton Baby Photography * Mommy Connections Christmas

Christmas time in Edmonton is my favourite!  I got to test out my backdrop for my annual weekend of Christmas minis with the Mommy Connections Edmonton South morning baby class. I think they liked it1!

Edmonton Family Photographer * Penate Family

We tried for weeks to get this family session with the Penate Family scheduled. For whatever reason, we just could not connect. And then the weather turned yucky. But by some lucky chance, the weather in November went up and up! It was so warm. November is traditionally a very cold month in Edmonton. Definitely not skirts and sandals weather. Sure the Autumn leaves at Larch Sanctuary had long fallen off, but thanks to the long yellow grass and warm sunlight, we still got the Edmonton Fall family session photographed.
