Edmonton Newborn Photographer * Baby Iyla

Iyla is the sweet newborn baby girl of Janene. She had the prettiest peach skin and was so easy to photograph. The colour palette that mom chose, of mint green, white and pale pink, complimented her skin tone perfectly. Her big sister loved to hold and cuddle her. It’s always a bit of a treat when photographing siblings and one is past the toddler age. It was such a pleasure photographing Iyla and her family.

Edmonton Family Photographer * McKenzie Family

I love when families are up to a bit of an adventure in the Edmonton River Valley.  I met part of the McKenzie family through the Mommy Connections program. Mom and their littlest one were attendees at one of the summer classes I did mom and baby photographs for. It was wonderful to meet their whole family for an evening summer family session. The evening light in the Millcreek Ravine is so perfect. And we had no mosquitoes. A perfect evening.

Edmonton Child Photographer * Zachary is 1

The days leading up to my photo session with Zachary there was a forest fire burning north of Edmonton. This is a very common occurrence in Alberta, in the spring and summer, due to the forests and thunderstorms that roll through, amount other things. It usually doesn’t affect Edmonton, but every once in awhile the wind will blow smoke our way. This happened close to Zachary’s 1st year photo session. And while the air quality wasn’t the best, the smoke gave the early morning sun a warm haze.  It was kinda cool to photograph in.  Zachary was a sweet little guy to take photos of. He loves his mom and dad!
