Smiley Boy

This little man was all grins while I was there! He has the most gorgeous blue eyes, and looks so much like his mom. This session was a blast, I loved how open this family was. I think we took pictures in every room in their house, which was awesome!

Travis is Calgary’s Child! His first cover, and mine too. This little guy is a total sweetheart, how many 3 year olds do you know that say ma’am and sir? I’m proud to have taken a photo of such a cute little guy that ended up being on the cover of a magazine.The September/October

Ahhhh, another from the same session. I couldn’t resist this one for some reason!

Lake Bonavista is a beautiful place, especially at sunset. I had the pleasure of photographing a gorgeous mother/son combo at the lake a few weeks ago. It was a fun and relaxed session, with a truly lovely setting.

Where are the girls?Out of all of my newborn sessions recently, not a single girl has been born!I’m assuming that means that my own surprise baby will end up being a girl.This little man here was happiest on his back in a laundry basket, I’ll have to remember that tip when my new one

The parents of this newborn session were so fun to take photos of. They had a nice relaxed attitude, and really made things quite smooth. They mentioned how much the dad looked like the new little man, but I never noticed until I got to this picture!They are a gorgeous family, and I wish them all
