Edmonton Winter Maternity Photos * Kimberly

Kimberly wanted outdoor maternity photos in the winter!  I love winter maternity photos!  She suggested photos around Lake Summerside. I’ve never photographed there before. It’s a private lake for the residents of Summerside and the rest of Edmonton is always super jealous in the summertime when we see the photos on Facebook of them laying on the beach. 

This was a super unique location for me in the winter time. A big event had just wrapped up a few weeks prior (where they jump into the frozen water of the lake). The giant ice blocks that were cut out of the lake were still there and it made for a really cool winter aspect. I wanted to use my big outdoor flash for this session and leading up to the date the weather looked like it would be perfect. My softbox on my flash is 8 feet tall and 8 feet wide. It is big and not something I would normally bring outside. The forecast for the day of our Edmonton maternity session was super warm. HOWEVER, about 30 minutes before the session was to begin the weather changed. And in Edmonton when the weather changes, it changes fast. It got super windy (not ideal for a giant softbox) and cold. My husband came with me to basically be the anchor so my flash didn’t blow away. But I love how the maternity session turned out. The setting sun in the fast-moving clouds; the ice blocks and the wind in Kimberly’s hair. It was pretty awesome. I’d do it again! Maybe with less wind.

Edmonton Newborn Photographer * Baby Everly

Everly was a dream to photograph. At 12 days old she is in that tricky area for newborns. Sometime around 10 days to 14 days babies start to be more awake or a bit harder to settle. But Everly slept like a dream and then when she was awake she was looking right at the camera. Mom wanted some family photos, but done in their master bedroom and in Everly’s nursery. I love the purple colour on the walls. I also love that mom wanted some photos of Everly in blue. I love baby girls in blue. And with her dark hair and perfect creamy skin, it was such a perfect colour for her. All the colours used during her Edmonton newborn photo session were amazing.

Edmonton Newborn Photographer * Emily

Baby Emily is such a sweet little Edmonton newborn baby girl.  She has the slightest blonde curls on her head. She is a little doll. Her big brother needed some extra convincing to be in the family portion. But that is quite common with siblings, especially if they are between the ages of 18 months and 4 years old. But once we got him posed he was all smiles and giggles.
