Edmonton Maternity * Chandra

Edmonton’s water levels on the North Saskatchewan river were very low the year I photographed Chandra’s maternity session. It had been a very dry and warm summer. The river was so low that the Edmonton River Queen had to stop sailing. However, the low water level did expose a fabulous rocky spot along the shore that was the perfect backdrop for a sunset maternity session in the Fall. It was such a perfect evening!  Oh that light!  Chandra and her husband welcomed an adorable baby boy shortly before Christmas 2015. Those photos will be on the blog soon.

Edmonton Family Photographer * Turton Family

You can’t tell from the smile and the warm Autumn colours, but this session with the Turton family was miserably cold. I fell like the temperature drop from the day before to the day of the session was about 25 degrees. I’ve known Amy since we were in elementary school together, maybe even playschool. We reconnected over Facebook and it was an honour to be able to photograph their family at one of my favorite natural areas in the Edmonton region. The Fall colours at Chickakoo Lake were top notch. Alberta doesn’t see many reds and oranges in the Fall as we don’t have Maple trees. But the dogwood bushes deliver a bit of extra punch.  It was great talking with Amy and Searle about our kids and the activities they are into. The little one is such a little card.  I think he gets it from his dad.

Edmonton Newborn Photographer * Baby Elijah

I first met this sweet family at my middle daughter’s preschool. She and Lexi were classmates together. It was a honour to photograph the newborn photos for baby Elijiah. Lexi and Olivia sure loved him during our session and I got some really sweet pictures of the three of the kids together. It did take some extra convincing.  As with most kids though.
