Delaney Charlotte

We were so very lucky to be in Connecticut before Josh’s sister Liz gave birth to our little niece! She ended up coming 10 days late, which was awesome for us but maybe not so great for poor Liz, lol! We got to visit them in the hospital and then again three times more, and she is just the

Sweet Little Neil – Calgary Newborn Photography

This was such a fun session for me to do because it meant that I got to reconnect with an old friend that I haven’t seen in years! It was also the first session in the new studio and it actually created so many more options for us because I didn’t have to pack everything to take it on

Hobbling Around Like a Little Old Woman

When you are pregnant, your body releases a hormone called Relaxin. A brilliant little hormone, it makes your ligaments all loosey goosey for the baby to get the heck out of there. What can happen however, is that the hormone loosens everything up so well, that your pelvis gets out of whack. Which

February 10 on 10

Well, ok – it’s really 7. I quickly shot these this month on the bed in about 3 minutes. I don’t have tons of time to spare these days – and I have a blog post coming soon with Max’s “official” newborn photos. The boy is still jaundiced but getting

Adventures in Breastfeeding

With my first two, breastfeeding came really easily. Both girls latched on almost immediately at birth and were nursing pros. I never understood at all about the struggles with breastfeeding. Now I’m understanding all too well! After birth, Max had trouble with latching. We were told by the

Maxwell Lincoln Kane

Maxwell Lincoln Kane I’m so excited to finally announce that Max is here! He was born on January 7th, 2015, weighing a surprising 9lbs 11oz and measuring 21.5″ long. After his due date coming and going, I was getting pretty impatient for him to arrive. I actually still didn’t

Just One – Calgary Newborn Photography

Just one quick peek of this super happy little man!

Cold Hands, Warm Heart

            While the snow is falling in January, it’s time to be cuddly and cozy inside! Fresh Sugar is having a special baby event now until the end of the February: PURCHASE ANY NEWBORN SESSION AND RECEIVE A MATERNITY OR SIX MONTH SESSION FREE!

Cohen – Calgary newborn photography

I smiled while editing every single one of Cohen’s photographs. He is such an expressive baby, and I don’t know if I’ve ever photographed a newborn with so much eye contact! He is such a sweet little peanut.

New Year, New Cards, New Special!

I am so excited to tell you all that I am doing away with holiday cards, birth announcements and the like! Wait, what? I’m not offering them myself anymore, because I’ve partnered with Minted.com to offer cards directly to my clients. What does this mean? It means some great things

Hudson – Calgary newborn photography

Could his name or his face be ANY cuter! I just love this little man, and his mom is a treasured friend. I’m so excited to see this wonderful family grow!

Little sister

After two rough and tumble little men, I think this gorgeous family is excited for the serenity of a sweet little girl. Although if her two big brothers have anything to say about it, she’s going to be just as feisty (and GORGEOUS!) as they are. This post is featured on Fresh

Summer Baby – Calgary Newborn Photography

After having to reschedule this newborn session because I was sick (I don’t like risking those germs with brand new babies) I finally got to meet this GORGEOUS little man. You might remember this fun family from their finger painting maternity session. I love summer babies because when the

A Little Different – Calgary Newborn Photography

I adore this family. I love that as soon as I walked in, Kim and I were talking shoes – even trying them on because we are the same size, lol! I love that they named their baby Atticus because I think that’s pretty much the coolest name around. I even love that Atticus didn’t want

Newborn Sweetness – Calgary Baby Photography

You may have noticed that there are a lot of repeat faces on this blog. I absolutely love that – it means so much to me when clients have a great experience and come back again and again. I love seeing how families grow together and I’m completely honored to be invited to share in

Before and After – Calgary Newborn Photography

It’s always fun to see this happy family, and I was excited when they wanted to do a before and after shot with pregnancy and their brand new baby! I loved how this newborn session featured lots of smiles from not only mom, dad and big brother but the new baby too! Don’t forget to click

Happy Birthday Carla!

It’s this gorgeous mom’s birthday today so I wanted to get her sneak peek up as a little gift to her. This family has twins and now a new baby boy to make their busy household much, much busier! This little man had a scary stay in the hospital after he was born, so we had to wait until

More favorites? How can this be possible?

Basically, there’s not a client that I get that I don’t like. But I looooooove my repeat clients. Because they are always fun and wacky and goofy like me. Yup – I totally just called this family goofy. They are the best, so much fun, so creative and really sweet and positive

Favorite Families – Calgary Newborn Photography

I know I talk a lot about my favorite families. I know I have a lot of them. (and I know that I spell favorite the American way and I just can’t help that so please bear with me). The reason why I have so many favorite families is because I see so many of my families again and again and

Little Elf

This little cutie was wide awake for our session, I guess he didn’t want to miss a thing! It was such a fun morning hanging out and chatting with his awesome parents. I love my job! 20+ comments will earn this family a surprise gift!

Finally – a GIRL!

There’s been something funky in the water in Calgary these days (and it’s not the fluoride, lol). Every single newborn session I’ve had since October has been newborn baby BOYS! And of course, it was after I got some sweet little girly things to use in photo shoots. I was so

A Baby is a Gift

I met this family through a unique sort of way. I know their good friend Natalie, who used to be Fairy Natalie that owned Enchanted Events – where my daughters had birthday parties and went to fairy camp. Natalie is also a friend of some other friends, and we happened to be at the same

Newborn Boys are EVERYWHERE!

Ok, holy moly. I don’t know what was in the water 9 months ago, but there are a bajillion baby boys around these days! I haven’t seen a little girl in ages, but that’s ok – I love these little men! Have I mentioned how much I love this family? I know I say that about lots of

I feel old.

Shezy was the very first person I met when I started junior high. We had a lot of classes together on that first day, and oddly enough, it turned out that my parents had bought a house that was just 3 doors down from hers! So we became fast friends and I have so many hilarious memories of sleep

From The Darkest Days . . .

I was having a bit of an off-week, lots of things went wrong, lots of weirdness. Then this past weekend, I had a couple of friends do very lovely things for me, and it made me think about silver linings, doors opening, and all those cliches. Today while I was editing this session, I remembered what

That’s not a toe!

Haha, sorry for the cryptic title for this post, but it was a phrase from this newborn session that STILL cracks me up. Considering that I often shoot little nakey newborn babies, you can probably figure it out. And no, I can’t show the image that inspired the wisecrack. LOL This is the

Happy Baby

Remember the gorgeous mom from this post? She had her gorgeous little baby and life is even better now for this happy family! I’m always so impressed when I enter a home where there’s a newborn and everyone is so calm and relaxed. I definitely wasn’t either of those things with my

She’s Delicious

Another fun repeat client, for their first baby they traveled down from Edmonton for their session, now they are a little closer, only having to drive an hour for the session. Trust me when I say that this means a TON to me, it makes me feel so honoured to have families not only come back but to go

They make really, really, really cute kids.

I was so excited to hear from this family again, I first saw them a few years ago to take maternity and newborn photos for their first adorable child. She was born around the time of Suri Cruise, and I remember commenting on the resemblance. (I always think people look like celebrities). She was

That was then. This is now.

Just one (or two, I guess) to share before the weekend. I first met this little man last year at his newborn session, and it was so great to be able to see him again now that he’s one and all grown up, lol! I’m reallllllly behind on the blogging, and I am so sorry to all my wonderful,

Newborn cuteness!

This little girl was absolutely SO sweet for our session. It was great meeting this new family of three, they are wonderful people with a very happy and relaxed laid-back attitude. What was the best part for me though, we how absolutely IN LOVE dad was with his wife and new daughter. I don’t

Meet Adrien – calgary newborn photography

As one of my very favorite families, I was so excited when Renee emailed me to let me know their new little man had arrived. I couldn’t wait to meet him, and see how big sister Claire liked her new brother. (answer: she’s lovey for about 10 seconds and then onto something new) What I

Calgary Baby Blogger’s Baby

Try saying that 10 times fast. A couple of weeks ago I was excited to head off to my newborn session, because the Mom was my daughter Emma’s first grade teacher until she went on maternity leave. Emma absolutely loves her, loooooooooves her, so I knew she was going to be super sweet. What I

Meet Kate – calgary newborn photography

Remember this belly? The most gorgeous, squishy, darling little girl came out of there and into the world right before Christmas. I know that Shelley was probably disappointed that she didn’t get a sneak peek before I left for my vacation, but I tricked her and scheduled this teaser to post

Emergency casting call! – calgary newborn photographer

Unfortunately we had to cancel the newborn video shoot this weekend because of the terrible snow. (I couldn’t get my vehicle out of my cul-de-sac) and the baby model we were using is already two weeks old, which is older than I need for the video. I know, it’s terrible to discrimate for

Oh, Those Eyelashes! – calgary newborn photographer

I first met Farah when I was at Melonheads in Beacon Hill getting the girls’ hair cut. She and her husband own the Calgary location of this amazing children’s hair salon. We got to chatting and it was with great pleasure that I was invited to their home to photograph their sweet little
