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.

Baby Amelia * Edmonton Newborn Photographer

Newborn Amelia was one of my first babies of 2016 and she was such a dream to work with. She was also the first baby I photographed after being part of an online posing workshop. So I got to test out some of the things I learned on her. I think I did fairly well, but I was glad to have more newborns that week to continue to practice. Amelia had such perfect skin, so I didn’t get to use the editing tricks I learned. However, babies with perfect skin is something I will never complain about. Editing skin, especially newborn skin, can be very difficult.

Amelia’s family had a very busy first few months. They got both a baby girl and a puppy. As with all growing puppies, Chester had a lot of energy, however he was already well trained. Mom and dad did want a photo with Amelia and Chester, but it was photographed as a composite — puppy and Amelia were never together but added together in Photoshop.

In a few months I will share some updated photos of Amelia and her family. We did a family session on the Thanksgiving long weekend, during a very early snow storm.

Edmonton Newborn Photographer * Ava

Baby Ava was my first newborn of 2016. And what a newborn session it was. Ava was a dream to work with and let me do so many poses with her.  And mom requested blue and grey for the accent colours!  I love blue and grey with girls.

Edmonton Newborn Photographer * Hunter

Hunter was born into a family that loves Edmonton sports teams — the Edmonton Oilers and Edmonton Eskimos.  They wanted photos of Hunter next to the teeniest hockey stick and footbal helmet.  Hunter has the chubbiest newborn cheeks and perfectly shaped features. Such a cute newborn baby boy.

Chantel’s house was decorated for Christmas and suggested their family have a few photos in front of the tree. The christmas presents were impeccable!  I was so impressed by the wrapping especially since my Christmas presents look like my toddler wrapped them.  Hunter was the perfect way to end my 2015 sessions! 

And just a refresher, here is Chantel’s beautiful Fall maternity session from the North Saskatchewan River in an area now known as Accidental Beach.
