I’m so looking forward to when the flowers are blooming again in Edmonton! It’s such a short season. The last two years, the crab apple blossoms lasted for less than a week. Luckily the lilac trees hang on a bit longer. For Lillian’s 6 month session we met up in a random dirt parking lot in the Edmonton river valley that had a random, but very large, lilac bush. It was actually fairly chilly with a rare east wind off the North Saskatchewan River, but Lillian gave me some smiles while mom and dad were snuggling her. She was less impressed to be by herself. Or in a basket. She is still a sweetie with those big blue eyes. And just a refresher, here is her newborn session.
Brace yourselves — this is a big post! I loved this session. I loved photographing 8 day old Anastasia. She is one of the most beautiful newborns I have met, with those lips and her dark wavy hair. Love her! It was so fun to photograph her family again. I last saw them when mom was pregnant and we had a sunny maternity session at the Muttart Conservatory. Little Leo was such a good little 2 year old and posed and listened so well. The photos of him hugging the yellow bucket with Anastasia inside, remain my favorite sibling photos I have ever taken. The yellow bucket was special because Leo also posed in it during his newborn session. However, I didn’t know if Ana would fit as she was a lot chubbier than Leo. But she did and she looked so sweet.
Henry has the longest eyelashes and the cutest family! I have been photographing them for several years, starting with Clara for her first birthday and big brother Will’s cake smash. I was excited to hear that mom was expecting another baby! We took some family photos upstairs in their master bedroom on the bed and then moved back downstairs to where I had set up my mobile studio. Henry enjoyed being all wrapped up for a lot of the photos. It is also easier for younger siblings to hold newborn babies during photos when the baby is wrapped snuggly.
I have one more session to share with this family in the next year. Henry celebrated his first birthday with a cake smash as well. Although, he was not happy about turning one ;)
