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

Just Keep Swimming

We are currently living under a mountain of paperwork. We are an embodiment of the phrase “when it rains it pours”. Because just having a baby isn’t enough, we are also building a custom home. Because building a custom home isn’t enough, we are also applying for

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

The Amazing and Incredible Ryan and his Family

Oh, where do I start with this special family? I met them years ago and I’ve been taking photos of their little unit of three happily every year. Now they have a beautiful family of four, but with no shortage of ups and downs. This little man made a very unexpected early debut on Halloween at

Just one quick peek of this super happy little man!

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

One Week! – Calgary Photography Gift Certificates

You may have noticed that I’ve been sprucing up the Fresh Sugar joint lately. It’s a slow process, one that I’m having a great time with. I plan to keep posting about all the little updates, and today is the first one, just in time for the holidays! With one week until Christmas,

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

25 Random and Irrational Things That I’m Scared Of

In no particular order: 1. Rats 2. A plane falling on my house 3. Being killed by the Tooth Fairy from the movie Red Dragon 4. Pigeons 5. Outer Space 6. When someone says ‘Candyman’ 7. Latin 8. Flying 9. 3AM 10. When my iPhone battery gets the 20% warning 11. Getting caught in a

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

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,

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

Happy Canada Day everyone! We had a great day around here, heading to my mom’s place for a BBQ. Her birthday was last week and we were able to give her the birthday present we’ve been planning for awhile now. She thought she was getting an iPad, she even told us she was practicing her

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
