A couple weeks back, my great friend Lindsay zipped out to the mountains to shoot some baby belly/fall photos for us. She did our first real set of family photos last spring…clearly, a lot has changed since then! Morris is becoming a cooler little person all the time, I absolutley love spending my days with him. Things are undoubtedly going to get shaken right up around here in the next couple of months. Though, it makes me pretty excited to know that there’s another cool little person cooking away in my tummy who will join our crew by the new year. These past 21 months as parents have been pretty rad and this is EXACTLY how I want to remember our family of three.
Lindsay got THE BEST Morris expressions…he never looks at my lens like this.
This guy! I could have never ever hoped for a better partner to do life with.
Lindsay completely nailed this session, there’s no way I could have hoped for anything better. Between the quickly fading sunlight & dropping temperatures, a wiggly, high-energy toddler and most of all, an annoying 30 week-pregnant-mum far too concerned about looking like a blob while chasing after and negotiating with the wiggly, high-energy toddler she had her work cut out for her. Somehow, we caught some killer patches of late afternoon light, I don’t look that much like a blob and she captured just the perfect amount of Morris wiggles. Thank you Lindsay! I’d highly recommend reaching out to her if you’re looking for family photos over the next 5 to 6 months while I am on maternity leave.
With baby #2 arriving before we know it, things are going to be quieting down even more [...I realize I haven't exactly been posting at the speed of light this past little while...] but I still plan to share occasional tidbits of my personal work and our family snaps over here if you’re curious to know what’s up in our world.
Tessa photographed Adam and I nearly two years ago when I was pregnant with Morris. It’s about time I finally was able to return the favour and get her family in front of my lens! We’d planned a simple, casual and classic outdoor fall shoot, which was fine. The evening beforehand, I got a text suggesting I come a bit earlier and photograph them in the family home prepping breakfast. Candid storytelling is what I think I do best, so I loved the idea. Tessa and Ethan grew up in this cozy home for their entire lives so I hope this set of images will be kind of special for them.
On the week of the 2013 Canmore floods, the Perkins were so, so kind to welcome Adam & I [as well as another family!] into their home while we were evacuated from ours.
Dani and Dave met in Canmore many, many moons ago.
Baby #3 on the way for Kristen and Ryan! I first photographed this growing little family 4 years back when they were expecting Aidymn. Evva, their second child was due right around the same time my son Morris joined our family so I had to pass on that round of photos. I was excited to hear from Kristen again this fall with news of their third!
