I'm sorry that I have been MIA. Things have been a little crazy around here. On March 27th we welcomed a beautiful baby boy, James Michael, into our family. He is the sweetest little man and I have been loving every minute of having a newborn around again (despite the sleepless nights). I will be on "leave" until most likely the fall. I'm sorry for any inconvenience. I feel like right now my family and new little one are my priority, and I don't want to miss out on anything. Thank you for your continued support and I look forward to all the fun sessions later in the year.

A huge thanks to Heidi for this beautiful picture of James, taken when he was 2 days old. Don't you want to just squish those cheeks?

A new year already?

Dear Internet,
Is it really a new year already? I apologize for my lack of posting. Things have been, well, a little crazy. I found out this summer that we’re expecting baby #5! Bit of a shocker, seeing as I gave away ALL of my baby everything. Go figure, right? hahah We're all super excited and the girls are hoping for another girl, the boys another boy. I’m now 32 weeks and cannot wait to feel somewhat normal again (and I have to admit I'm hoping this little one decides to come a little early. I can always hope, right?)12 week ulstrasound pic

So here are just a few of the fun photo sessions that took place over the last few months. Be prepared for a LOT of photos!

I love photographing Lexi. She’s the sweetest little girl and her smile is infectious.

Such a sweet little family. These were Caitlin and Jordan's engagement and soon-to-be family photos.Caitlin_Jordan-084 WEBCaitlin_Jordan-141 WEB

One of my favorite families and I love that Roberta and I found out we’re both expecting within a couple weeks of each other. Kearl-066

This was a beautiful wedding and we headed to Sundance Lake for some family photos. Patrick & Erin-138Patrick & Erin-325-BW

I love it when families come back to me for photos. It’s so fun to see the kids grow and these boys are a blast!!

Nothing sweeter than a sleeping baby. This little man is #4 in his family and the first boy! I loved watching his sisters with him – you could tell how much they simply adore him.Lincoln-0080 WEBLincoln-0088Lincoln-0098

Later in the summer was Caitlin and Jordan’s wedding and it was wonderful. She made such a beautiful bride

The day after the wedding we headed out for family photos before some of Caitlin’s sisters headed back to the states and northern Alberta. It was a big, but super fun group.

I have had the pleasure of photographing this little guy every 3 months since shortly after he was born. I have loved being able to see him grow up over the last year. Hard to believe he’s a year old already!

Another fabulous family. I think I say this about all the families that I photograph, but they truly are. Comb Family-192Comb Family-303-BW

My last family session of the year! And what a way to finish it off with this beautiful family. We lucked out and we were able to take some without the snow. I think it ended up snowing a TON just a couple days after we took these. I don’t know what it is, but I’m loving the look of black and white photos lately too.

I also did a couple newborn sessions. Both babies decided to join the world 4 weeks early. This little one came in weighing 5 pounds 3 ounces. So little but so sweet. Aren’t they the cutest little girls?? and those headbands… love!
I wonder if her dark hair will stay or if she’ll end up with that beautiful blond hair like her older sisters?Talia-060Talia-073

The last little munchkin was my niece. She came 4 weeks early weighing a whopping 4 pounds 3 ounces. SOOO TEENY! My sister’s initial plan was for me to come in and take delivery pictures for her, but because she ended up being high risk they had a hard time even getting my mom in the delivery room. Instead they let me into the NICU where I was able to take a few pictures of her there.  These pictures do not do her size justice at all - she was soooo tiny! Thankfully she’s healthy and currently up to just over 9 pounds!

My last session was with my wonderful partner in crime, Heidi. She gave birth to a beautiful 8lb 12oz baby girl at home only a few days after our little session. I wish I could look like Heidi when pregnant!

So that's the last little bit in a nutshell. I hope to be able to pick things up again after baby and I have a little time to get a schedule down. Thank you for your patience and I look forward to getting back into the swing of things later in the year.
