Meghan, Andrew + Lucas

I love at home newborn sessions, and a few weeks back I was lucky to have two on the same day!! The morning started off with Meghan, Andrew and their new baby Lucas. Meghan and Andrew are high school sweethearts that have built such a beautiful home together. The day of our session baby Lucas was already over a month old...but his due date still was a week away. This little champ is so strong and alert, doesn't even seem like a baby who came over 5 weeks early. He just couldn't wait to meet his parents...and by the way that they look at him, I don't blame him one bit!

SCOUT

I was so lucky back in February to be welcomed into the amazing kid friendly cafe SCOUT to take some photos. My 2.5 year old son's favourite activity for the last year and a half has been to go on coffee dates. This is always a fun activity, but once his "coffee" is done running around and burning off some energy was never really welcomed...until SCOUT. It has such an amazing play area for kids, where playtime is encouraged while Mom or Dad finally gets to drink a hot cup of coffee! They also get fresh amazing treats from local shops so you and your little one can treat yourselves. If you haven't been yet, you MUST go! And while you are there, say hi to Katrina, Phil and Stella, the family behind this lovely space. Enjoy!

Ellyiot + Charley

If floral crowns, tea parties with bunnies, pink bows and all around adorableness is your thing...well then this is the session for you! My job was made so easy by these girls' mama...there was just too much cuteness to photograph <3 Lucky for me, I get to photograph them again TWICE this summer as flower girls for two of their aunties! I can't even begin to imagine how adorable that will be. Enjoy!

Baby Benji

Don't even know where to start with this one... it's a little bit of a sentimental shoot for this family (and myself as well if I'm being 100% honest). I've known Lisa for a while now, we went to school together and now have worked together for quite a few years. When returning from our first maternity leaves, Lisa had the genius idea that since we are shift workers, we should take turns watching the kiddos as our child care. Now almost a year and a half later, baby Benji is born and this family is moving on and starting a new journey in a different province. These pictures not only celebrate their new baby boy and being a family of four, but also as memories of their Winnipeg home. This home is the only place that I have ever dropped my son off at. Here I knew he was safe, well cared for, having fun and most importantly VERY loved. I will miss these days and be a little sad that our sons won't have the bond that our oldest kiddos do. Also, somehow I'm going to have to explain to my son that he is now in a long distance relationship haha. If that wasn't enough to pull on my heartstrings, Grandma joined in for a bit so she could have some nice pictures of her and the kids before they leave. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I do <3

Jen, Jared & the boys

Falling a bit behind on my blogging these days, cannot believe I am just posting this session! I had such a great time with this little (and very busy family). I love doing life at home sessions, capturing precious moments of a family in their own home....which was a good option for this cold January day. Jen and Jared had newborn photographs of their eldest with Dad's hockey jerseys... and of course this new little cutie followed suit. Enjoy

Krista, Chris & the Boys

This past weekend I had the pleasure of doing an at home session for this beautiful little family, as well as doing a couple of newborn photos of their brand new addition to their family. LOVE at home sessions, and the fact that its the holidays just brings an extra cozy & happy vibe. Enjoy!

Jennifer, David & Baby Thomas

Jennifer & David wanted a lifestyle newborn session for their son Thomas...Little did I know I was going to be able to photography the ultimate boy's nursery! Marvel superheroes was the theme and it was done so well to the last detail. Especially the letters for his name! I had a blast with this family & hope you enjoy the images as much as I do!

Darren, Andrea & the Kids

Early December I visited this family at their home for some Christmas photos. First by the tree and the fireplace, then everyone got all bundled up to take pictures out in the snow. I love outdoor winter sessions...especially when the view of your yard looks like this! Enjoy!

Baby E

Here are a few pictures from a newborn session from the summer. Baby E was such a good little model...and I may have stolen a few cuddles from this cutie while I was there. Welcome to the world baby E!

 

PB&J

I wish I came up with the title PB&J for this family, however, it was this beautiful mama Paola that first used it in an Instagram post. It was just too cute I couldn't resist! Being a mama myself I completely understood Paola's suggestion last summer for a "Life at Home" session capturing these precious moments of her little man's life. I had such a blast with this beautiful little family and am more than willing to come back at any time to take pictures of this handsome little guy. Enjoy!
