A “Rae” of Sunshine {Medicine Hat Newborn Photographer}

Posted on January 5, 2011

Oh my goodness… this little bitty baby girl is so beautiful *sigh* that I could have spent hours with her.  Patience always pays off in newborn sessions, and this one was no different… all the rocking, bouncing and shooshing resulted in some very beautiful photos.  Momma and I go back a couple of years, when she was an Educational Assistant in my Kindergarten classroom.  (Both parents may look familiar from THIS wedding back in  September…)  I am so happy that they have a little girl of their own now, and am also thrilled that they are going to be married this coming summer!  Congratulations all around to the Hart Family!  :)

Ready for Christmas? {Medicine Hat Photographer}

Posted on November 5, 2010

Soooo, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but… there are only 49 shopping days left until Christmas!  EEP!  I haven’t even gotten as far as asking my loved ones what they would like this year.  Seriously have to get on top of this situation soon…

But don’t worry, I have a great idea for you!  This is a gift for your… parents, grandparents, children, best friends… really, anybody.  (And if you’re the lady of the house… send this link to your hubby, they need a little help in the “perfect gift” area sometimes ;)

Call or email for more details on how you can give “The Perfect Gift” this Christmas!  I look forward to hearing from and working with a lot of happy “Giftees” in the New Year!!

She’s A Jewel! {Bow Island/Medicine Hat Newborn Photographer}

Posted on October 29, 2010

Do you remember seeing the beautiful Mommy and Daddy to Be from this session?  Well, I was so excited to finally meet the sweet baby girl that they were waiting for all that time!  She was SO relaxed and easy going, letting me wiggle her around, swing her into a snuggly slumber and take photos until my heart was content.  Mom was also relaxed and easy going, so it’s no wonder her little girl was a superstar during our photo session ;) .  Thank you Ellen and Todd for giving me the honor of preserving your memories of Jewel as a newborn… she really is precious.

Gorgeous Baby Boy {Newborn Photographer}

Posted on September 17, 2010

Oh my goodness… this little man is so cute I can hardly stand it!  The little stinker was not easy to settle on the day of his first official photo shoot, but once he snuggled in, the magic started.  I think his Mommy and Daddy will agree that all the hard work we put into getting him to sleep, was well worth the final results ;)   Since he was premature, we waited quite a few weeks to take these photos, and he was still only just seven pounds at the time!  So tiny and precious.  I took along a variety of homemade hats etc. to test out, but we all settled on this perfect set… and since it looked so darn cute on him, I’m in the process of making him a slightly bigger newsboy cap for the winter.  It’s just perfect for him right?  Love it.  Collins Family… I hope you are cherishing every moment with your new little guy and that you will always love his newborn photos :)   Thanks for trusting me with them!  I can’t wait to watch him grow…

Celebrating the Beauty of Life {Medicine Hat Photographer}

Posted on June 21, 2010

I have often come across people in my community who are going through something in their lives be it sickness, recovery, a birth that has overcome great odds, an adoption; and my automatic response to those stories is that I want to reach out to them and offer them a photography session (free of charge of course).  Something that would document this time in their lives, to leave behind memories for those they love or to commemorate a happy and joyful time.

To me the images that we take mean so much more than just a time and a place- they are a celebration of our lives- moments preserved and made into artwork that will forever remind us of the Beauty of Life!

So I challenge you to nominate your friends or those you have heard of who are deserving of such a celebration.  Take an active roll in those lives around you- notice the beauty in one another.

I will choose one application per month (for now) that truly merits a session.  If someone you nominate is chosen, you will also receive a credit to use towards a Celebration Session of your own!  I can’t wait to start helping everyone give :)

Applications (using the Contact link in the menu):

Your application of nomination must include your information (name, email address and phone number as well as a detailed description as to why you feel this person or people deserve a session.)
Also you must include their name, address, email address and phone number.

Here’s a little beauty for today…

Four Kids= Full House! {Medicine Hat Newborn Photographer}

Posted on February 21, 2010

Oh my gosh!  I was surprised and so excited when I heard that my best friend from grade school was expecting baby number FOUR… Wow!  The sweet little lady made her appearance at the beginning of the month, and I was so happy to be able to visit and take these photos for the family.  Aren’t these children gorgeous?!  Hmm, maybe you guys need one or two more… you really do make beautiful babies you know?  :)   I LOVE how these photos have captured your new “upgraded” family, and the sweet little face on Miss K.  She’s amazing… congratulations once again to all of you!  (P.S… this is just a sampling of my favorites so far… there are so many to choose from!)

Early Christmas Gift! {Medicine Hat Baby Photographer}

Posted on December 29, 2009

So here is the perfect little product from the couple whose maternity session is posted two down… isn’t he the cutest EVER?!  Oh boy.  Our first attempt at this session was hit and miss… but mostly miss to be honest, although we managed to get a few happy moments from him then as well.  Even so, we decided to try again a few days later and let me tell you… this little guy was a DREAM!  He is so squishy and perfect from his tiny little nose to his sweet little toes.  The best!  I was able to “test drive” some new things my mom created… including the sweetest little Santa hat, which actually was a gift for the new baby!  Fit him perfectly.  Thank you, thank you, thank you guys for letting me be a part of this new beginning for all of you… he is a miracle.  P.S… We’ll be back soon to “just snuggle” him by the way ;)

Surprise… It’s a girl! {Medicine Hat Baby Photographer}

Posted on September 14, 2009

Well, she finally arrived safe and sound… with anxious family and friends waiting to meet her, and she’s beautiful!  (Although, I get the feeling that a boy was expected to appear this time… haha!)  I was so excited to take this little girl’s photos and I was not disappointed… she slept like a dream and once she woke up, she even held her head up for a couple of shots!  She has a very proud and loving big sister who let me get a few photos of her too… so sweet with her little sister.  Congratulations you guys, can’t wait for the next one… haha!

Little Man

Posted on September 4, 2009

It has been a few years since I taught across the hall from this proud Mom of one of the most handsome and charming little guys I’ve met!  What a great day for catching up and getting shots of this cutie… oh and his parents of course…  I hope you love your photos.  (I’m enjoying the ones I got of “you know who” behind the scenes, “surfing” on the rocks… haha!)  You are all very blessed and I’m so happy to have had the opportunity to preserve one little moment of your life together, thank you.
