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.

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.

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.
