Baby Love

Let's face it, babies are born to be adored, loved, snuggled to and kissed a lot. This handsome munchkin's got it all... and more...

I'm so glad we got these photos and captured his 'tiny-ness'.  I hear that he is eating almost non-stop (especially at night) and at this rate is going to outgrow his sister and his parents in no time :)

Oh those little hands and little feet!!

Of course I took quite a few photos of little miss Lily (the adorable big sister) as well, but since I think the spotlight should remain on her baby-brother, I'll put he images online in a few days. Please check back, they turned out absolutely beautiful!

Planes, Trains, Automobiles

It is always  so wonderful when your friends bring their grandchildren for a session.  You can see their faces light up with love. You can tell their hearts are overflowing with joy and happiness.

Jaxson, adorable to no end. He has grown so much since I saw him last. He is still very much into planes, trains, automobiles and anything with wheels. 

This little munchkin is glued to his grandpa and keeps biggest smiles for his grandma.

CBC Interview

I want to say HUGE-HUGE Thank You to everyone who came for the CBC interview at our studio. Your support means a lot to us. The CBC reporter was extremely kind and patient with our super enthusiastic models and the little munchkins had a lot of fun, as you can tell from the photos.

I'll let everyone know in advance when the interview airs.

Little Flower Princess

There can't be any doubt here, Emme is a real Flower Princess... and very much daddy's little girl!

She looks like a little flower herself. Gentle, gentle, gentle... She takes 'make believe' world very seriously and is so adorable to watch, it's hard to remember you are supposed to be taking photos.

Fairy With A Graceful Heart - Part I

The best thing about being a photographer is getting to meet marvellous people. People who not only inspire your art, but your heart. 

You are looking at one of these people right now.  

Tamara was a bit shy when she came to the studio. It's a part of her nature, just like the her graceful heart. By the end of the session she had me completely convinced that kindness consists of particles and comes in waves.

I took a gazillion of photos... and they all turned out beautiful, so watch for 'Part II' in a couple days. 

A Fairyland of Her Own

 Anaya. She creates in a Fairyland of her own.

Watching her is like following a fascinating ballet, where every movement is filled with meaning.  Exquisite hand gestures and her expressive eyes will tell you more than any words ever could.

See what I mean? No words are needed...

...and every move is so full of expression...

Sweetest Little Fairy

She looked like she stepped right out of a fairytale... 

She was a perfect little angel. Dainty, polite and very charming.

I asked her what she had been doing that day.  She said, "I'm just a little girl, I don't know what I was doing..."  We laughed and laughed and laughed...

Love At First Sight

When I say editing Enchanted Forest images takes a long time, I mean a l--o--n--g time. Poor Ashton, I pushed the completion date back three times on her. Thank you Ashton, for being so patient.

Now to Gavin. We both fell in love with him the first time we met him. Being a mischievous prankster he always catches us off guard. One moment he lo-o-oves lizards, the next, he's afraid of them. He is always full of surprises.

Having him in our studio is always a treat.

The Session That Was Meant To Be!

Outdoor sessions any time of the year tend to turn me into a  compulsive weather checker. More so in fall. Especially in late October.  But if a session meant to be, even a bad weather will wait... :)  

The evening of this shoot turned out to be beautiful. The sunset was so spectacular that even Zoey, who thrives in front of the camera and can pose for hours, had hard time looking at me. We had fabulous time! 

The very next morning we woke up to everything covered in white! It snowed and it stayed.

If you recognize people in these photos, you know how wonderful and special this family is.  And I can not be happier that we managed to sneak these shots just before the winter arrived.

People You Love Most

Why does selecting photos for a post have to be so hard?  Minutes turn into hours rather quickly and without you ever noticing it... It  generally seems to be a problem with me and in this case in particular. 

Earlier in my career I was absolutely terrified of doing work for artists and musicians. Especially the extremely talented kind. Deep down I always wanted them to go somewhere else... Until I met this couple. Their out of this world kindness and appreciation for my work cured my fears. And I can not be happier they decided to come back for a fall family session this year. 

It means a great deal to me that they trust me with photographing people they love most!!!

Guys, you are amazing! World needs more people like you!

A Glow of Happiness

I can still feel a glow of happiness that surrounded this session. Two little munchkins running around, playing in the leaves, laughing all the way... and their parents... enjoying every minute. 

What I love most about these images is how genuine they are.  They are true to this family and to precious moments of joy that come from being together. 

We had so much fun photographing them! Meanwhile Alf kept saying that the mother of the boys look familiar. Very-very familiar!  Imagine our surprise when we found out later that she is the daughter of old friends! Except last time Alf saw her she was around her boys age  :)

A Family of Free Spirits

I've been trying to figure it out for years... Who are the people who keep coming back to us for more photos?  Despite our limited availability, above-average prices and a growing number of photographers in the city.  The answer came at the most unexpected moment. As Janine looked at her oldest daughter and said "She is a free spirit", it dawned on me...  Of course! Why didn't I think of it myself?! This is EXACTLY who these people are!

Saying that this family is amazing is redundant after you see the photos. They light everything around them with their smiles and a refreshing sense of humour.  They are a family of free spirits and I'm extremely grateful they have chosen us as their photographers!

It is impossible to post all the beautiful images we took that day, but here are some more.

Live Your Favourite Moments Every Day

I know I am supposed to be working... yet I can't stop turning around to look at the gorgeous wall portrait that came in the mail this morning.  It's the very first photo in this post. Most certainly one of those photographs that are meant to be printed large. 

It was such a perfect evening.  A loving family enjoying being together, cuddling and giggling, and throwing leaves at each in the setting autumn sun.  Just a few days later that crazy wind we had in October blew all the leaves off this tree.  Yet the moment is not lost.  Its warmth and beauty is captured forever.

This is one of my favourite spots for outdoor sessions in Regina.  Splendid and glorious are two words that come to mind every time I see it. 

Family Love

I love, love, love photographing families.  Especially outdoors. Prefferably in the fall. 

This family stole my heart a long time ago...

There is so much love and care in everything they say and do, it's impossible to stop taking photos.  

There is a lot of photos in this post...

As you can see everyone had a lot of fun!!

In Perfect Harmony

Every single year as trees change their colour and days become shorter and shorter, my husband and I spend a lot of our time photographing families in a park.

These sessions are unlike any other we do. They have an ethereal quality to them and feel like music. They immerse your heart in perfect harmony.  Harmony created by genuine human connection and love. 

I hope you can see it in these photos.
