Spring in Edmonton, over the last few years, has been extremely windy. 2020 has been no different. It’s sad because the crab apple tree blossoms (or cherry blossoms as most people call them) blow off the trees after only a short few days. The morning of my maternity photography session with Salem was cold and the wind gusting to 50km/h. Not ideal for photos. As I was prepping to leave a storm starting rolling through. Double not ideal for photos! However, as I drove to the location in the Edmonton river valley, the clouds moved off and the sun came out. It was an absolutely beautiful evening! Salem was joined by her beautiful children, her sister and her parents. Please enjoy these maternity photos at one of Edmonton’s hidden gems for blossoms!
We had the most perfect evening for spring maternity photos in Edmonton with Preeti and her husband. Most of the cherry trees were finished blooming (although they are actually ornamental crabapple trees), but there was one surprise tree at Hawrelak Park that had just blossomed! And, if I can remember, there were no mosquitoes! It was like a photography jackpot. I love the diversity of Hawrelak Park, so many options and different looks for photographs. Preeti welcomed an adorable little boy in early summer. I will share those photos from his Edmonton newborn session soon! And check the Before & After edit at the end of the post. There was an ugly utility box right where the beautiful tree was. I had to take it out!
Also if you are into Geocaching, or looking to try it, Hawrelak Park is a great spot to start. There are a lot of geocaches hidden on the trails and inside the park boundaries. It’s such a fun activity to do with your kids. We keep a trinket filled ziplock bag in the car in case we are out and decide to do some spontaneous geocaching.
I have photographed Christy and her family several times over the years. They will be blessed very soon with a baby girl! I was excited to get outside in the Spring sunshine and photograph them on the grounds by the Muttart Conservatory Pyramids.
These two little babies were so sweet! They snuggled together and were so content. We even got to do a sibling photo with their dog. I don’t know how many times I passed Cohen & Elliot back and forth between mom/dad and their bassinets during our session yesterday. They hardly moved. Especially Cohen. And dad said he was the squirmy one. What an amazing brother and sister duo photograph!
After several years of waiting, Kristi is expecting her first child. I was honoured to be the one chosen to photograph her and her baby through the first year of her life!
Newborn baby Ethan was soooooo so good during his photoshoot at my west Edmonton photography studio! And how could it not go well? I had a perfect sunset maternity session with his parents at St Albert’s Red Willow Park!
I love me a chonky newborn baby! Look at his cheeks! So cute. And his beautiful big sister Pyper got to join in for a photo. (*any photo I post that involves an animal and a newborn is a composite photo. I will also only attempt them with a pet that can show me they can obey the Sit, Lay Down and Stay commands*)
Expecting a baby? I would love to chat. Send me an email about my newborn (and/or maternity newborn combo packages).
This cute family of 3 will soon be a family of 5! The math is correct. They will be welcoming twin boys soon. Here is a quick peek into the outdoor portion of our maternity session from the weekend.
It’s my birthday week and I have a gift for YOU! Book a 2020 Edmonton newborn session and choose between a complimentary maternity or sitter session, plus 5 digital photos! ❤️
Sessions must be booked by February 29, 2020! Email me for more information.
I have been shooting a lot of maternity recently. I love it. Keep it coming! D and her sweet little guy came to visit me on the weekend for some pictures. Their family will be welcoming baby #2 shortly! By the time we finished up the indoor photos, the snow was falling. So we went for a walk.
To book your maternity and/or newborn photos, you can send me a message! I look forward to working with you!
