Edmonton & Area Maternity and Newborn Photographer {Baby Bennett}

Happy Sunday everyone. I hope you had a fabulous weekend and enjoyed some of the nicest weather we’ve had in a month. Between Thursday and Saturday I shot 3 family sessions and a sweet pumpkin patch cake smash session, so busy, so today it was time to relax a bit and get caught up on some blogging and editing. You may have noticed that I haven’t been blogging family sessions; truth is I am just way too busy to blog every session over the summer and fall months, but I will be sharing all of my favorite sessions over the course of the slower winter months, so stay tuned. Are you thinking about Christmas yet? I am! The past few weeks I have been stocking up on sweet holiday newborn props for all of my holiday newborns (still some openings available) and last week I released my Christmas studio and Outdoor winter mini session dates - dates are starting to book up fast, see available bookings and book your spot here today. There are still some fall dates available and now is the best time to book your extended holiday season family sessions, there are a few openings just before Christmas and New years to accommodate families that all get together over the holidays.

I met this gorgeous couple this summer and as soon as I met them I could tell that a) they would have the most beautiful baby and b) I was about to shoot my favourite maternity session of all time. Ashley arrived to maternity session with a few just lovely dresses to wear, we had the most amazing golden hour light, and as usual we had one of my favourite spots all to ourselves. Worst part - the mosquitoes! I was getting eaten to death right through my jeans and poor mama Ashley, changing as we went nearly got eaten alive. You just can’t win here all the way in the summer.

A few weeks later sweet little Bennett arrived..my 7th newborn Bennett of the year! The funny thing is that I always loved the name Bennett for a boy, but never got to use it since I had three girls. Now I guess I just book families who have a great taste in names. I arrived to a new mom and dad who had slept in a bit late (I would too if baby was sleeping) and a wide awake baby boy. After what seemed like hours, I finally got little B to sleep and we ended up with the most adorable sleepy shots and warm cuddly shots with mom and dad who were just so obviously in love with their new bundle of joy and with each other in their new role as parents. Ashley and Matt thank you so much for choosing me to capture this special time for your family. Wishing you all the best as a family of three and p.s Happy anniversary. Enjoy, {K}
