Edmonton Newborn Photographer * Baby Ben'leiya

Baby Ben’leiya was a cuddler. And she got to have extra cuddles from mom & dad, but also Grandma who was visiting from out east. Dad really wanted newborn photos with Ben’leiya’s eyes open. She was awake through all of the photos with her and mom, and then as soon as it was dad’s turn she fell asleep. Of course. I did get one before she nodded off.

Edmonton Cake Smash Photographer * Eloise is 1

 

I’ve done many cake smashes in my career, but never one outdoors. This was fun to do — and it helped immensely that there were no mosquitoes. We started off the birthday photos with Eloise and her family in the west Edmonton poplar forest behind my house. I always offer my clients the opportunity to get in the photos with their one year old for family photos. It also helps give the little ones some time to warm up to me, especially if they are shy.  Eloise loved the cake that her mom made her. She had a lot of fun. I was somewhat nervous about how I was supposed to clean up baby after the cake smash — since there was no bathtub in the forest. However, she stayed fairly clean. Wet wipes were all that were needed. Problem solved.

Edmonton Maternity Photographer * Aly

This was such a beautiful summer evening in Edmonton for a maternity session with a family welcoming another baby boy. I am so looking forward to more of that warm sun and happy families.
