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.
