Edmonton Extended Family Photographer * The Lee's

The Lee Family contacted me about wanting extended family photos with the kids and grandchildren in the summer. One part of the family lives in Ottawa and was visiting for a couple of weeks. I met them at one of my favorite spots for photos in Edmonton — the Whitemud Nature Reserve along the Whitemud Creek. It was a beautiful summer day and everyone was smiling and happy.

Edmonton Newborn Photographer * Baby Olivia

Olivia is such a doll and has the most amazing newborn pout. I haven’t take a lot of macro photos recently (mostly because families haven’t wanted it), but I made sure to take a close up photo of her lips.  Olivia was a vreeze to photograph, sleeping through several different set changes and outfits. We also were able to get a photo of the entire family — mom, dad, toddler and two small dogs!  Connor had only turned one a few months prior to Olivia’s birth, so he was still fairly young for posing with his little sister. But he did a fabulous job giving her kisses.

Edmonton Child Photographer * Marek is 1

Sometimes a first birthday celebration doesn’t have to involve a cake smash session.  Marek is such a happy little guy. It wasn’t hard to get him smiling. He also loved pushing my curved bench around my mobile studio set up  at his Edmonton house.
