is it odd that i feel like i can only blog winter sessions when it is snowing outside?! lol. lucky i have some beautiful snowy sessions to share.

i am terribly behind in my blogging (like 4 years behind!!) but i promise i am trying to do better!

so, enjoy these two and their maternity session- their sweet little babe turned one a week ago already!!

    susan - these 2 are so cute! you captured their fun and sweet ways perfectly!

i quite literally have about 20 sneak peeks to share from new sessions and sessions dating back to 2012 that need to be blogged (!) but instead i share with you my sweet, funny, loving, adorable one year old. this is what taking photos of an active 14 month old looks like!

i loved this session so much. this hot mama was a natural in front of the camera and her beauty is so real. there are about 50 more images i would love to share but i thought i would keep the post PG.

thank you so so much to miss c for being such a babe to photograph and for letting me share her photos.

enjoy! and please, if you have ever thought about a “bombshell” session, send me an email and lets chat!

a while back i had a conversation with a friend about the amount of “framers” from her photo session- the number of photos that she wants to print to put up in their home. it got me thinking…

in a photo session, i strive to give you not only “framers” but also “keepers”. i want to get you some really pretty art for your walls, of course. and i definitely try to get you some photos where each family member is looking at the camera and smiling, but that stuff is not my only focus. i hope to capture you interacting and i hope to zoom in on little details and i hope to freeze moments (and to be honest- i personally think those make awesome “framers” too).

i think that maybe when you first go through your photos you might focus on the “framers” and look at what you look like, and if there is hair out of place (there will be!) and if everyone is smiling, and search for that “perfect” portrait. BUT, it is my wish that when you are going back through your images (over and over again) it is the “keepers” that stand out and that you will really cherish. i hope that you notice things that you maybe don’t take the time to in your day to day life. i hope the keepers show you how much love you share. i hope these make your heart happy.

i had my own experience with this the other day when our photographer posted one of our newborn photos on her instagram feed. i saw it and immediately teared up- it’s one of my favourite “keepers” from our session. a little moment captured and i am so thankful for it.

i hope my clients love their framers and their keepers.

maybe even frame a couple keepers?!

here are a couple keepers from a recent session…
