Edmonton Christmas Minis Nov 25 & 26, 2017

Two days ONLY —  November 25 & 26, 2017. 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 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. This area has now been named Accidental Beach. 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.
