Sweet Baby James; a personal post

It's not often I can convince my kids to let me take their picture, and James is getting to that age where he refuses to sit still. But I was dying to try out my new softbox! I have the most wonderful friends and family, and was absolutely spoiled for my birthday - a new 5 foot softbox! Beautiful newborn nest and blanket! More photography gear, beautiful jewelry, gift cards for the mall, and so much more. I cannot express my gratitude enough for their kindness and generosity. Thank you all so much!

Anyways, this softbox has been calling my name and I finally put it together and attempted photos of baby James. No, he's definitely not a baby anymore, but he's MY baby. And although these images are not perfect (I'm still learning studio lighting! and James did not cooperate), I LOVE them.

I love his little body, his chubby fingers and toes. I love the dirty looks he can give that make me crack up. For 19 months old he's very polite, saying please and thank you more than his older siblings do. I love that he runs at a sprint to give a hug and kiss. I love my time snuggling him at night when the older kids are in bed. I love his silliness and his tender heart. I love this little boy. He's stolen my heart.

Strong - Calgary Family Photography

I love my job! These are the most adorable girls. And their lashes!!! Are you kidding me? I'd love to have lashes like theirs. I met Sarah back in my Edmonton days and we became great friends. You can imagine my excitement when I found out they were moving to Calgary!!

I had so much fun with Sarah and her family. We ran around Fish Creek Park to try and stay warm. I'm missing the warm summer nights already and winter has barely started!

Thanks for the fun evening. And Sarah, you are beautiful. Period.
