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.

Pet Faces {I Heart Faces} Contest

It’s pet week at I Heart Faces and I thought I would enter the weekly contest.  I love this photo of Kiaba the kitten. We were playing peek-a-boo at the Edmonton Humane Society.

Pet Photos with Santa * Edmonton Pet Photography

Here is a selection of some of the photos from this past weekend at the Pet Photos with Santa fundraiser at the Edmonton Humane Society. I had lots of fun and there were a lot of super cute dogs and cats getting their photos taken.  Just like kids, there were a few dogs (mostly the big ones) that weren’t too sure about sitting on Santa’s lap, but they eventually all warmed up enough to the big guy to get a photo. A squeaky toy and treats also help ;)

*a special thanks to my mom, who watched baby Tristan for 5 hours each day, while I did the pet photos*

Pet Photos with Santa at the Edmonton Humane Society!

My first official foray back into photography (after a short baby break) will be snapping photos at the Edmonton Humane Society during their annual Pet Photos with Santa fundraiser. Mark your calendars and bring your pets to sit on Santa’s knee at the shelter on December 11 and 12 from 12:00 - 5:00 p.m. each day. There are other days (follow the pet photos link), but I will only be at the shelter only on the 11th & 12th! Hope to see you there!

Photos will cost $15.00 for a print or $25.00 for a print and a e-mailed digital copy. All proceeds will go to support the care of the animals at the shelter throughout the year. And Santa is equal opportunity — pets of all types, whether furry or scaly, are welcome. (kids are also welcome)

Here are a couple examples from last year…..
