Local Edmonton Business Feature : Full Circle Birth Collective

Several years ago I photographed local Doula and Birth Educator, Sonya Duffee-Seguin and her local home based business the Full Circle Birth Collective. While the collective has grown and changed since 2013, I wanted to bring back this session to highlight an alternative to the traditional business profile. If you own a local Edmonton and area business that compliments parenting, birth, children's fashion, baby needs, I do have Business features available and as a bonus include a feature in the new Inspired-Magazine .

Home For the Holidays, An Edmonton Holiday Session

Christmas & Holiday sessions are some of my favourite! Happy to be able to share this one that was photographed in early November. 

 Edmonton Windermere Christmas Photo Session

And as the kids begin to hang the ornaments, you may reminisce of how this one Grandpa gave you on your first Christmas, or that one you made when you were a child.. but is now slightly worn but still holds a special place in your heart. It's the sharing of the memories, creating new ones for your family. The ornaments may not seem like much, but they hold a treasure all their own. 

Top 3 Reasons Why I love Black & White

When I process images into black and white, I pick and choose which ones I think will work best, some images will work while others look best in colour. I'll be going a through a session in Lightroom and come to an image that leaps out at me, begging to be edited as black & white. That image is then set apart from the others in a series or a session. I don't think all images should be done as black and white, a reason why I use artist discretion when delivering client images and will not deliver an entire set in both black and white and in colour.   

Here are my Top 3 Reasons Why I love Black & White Images.

What Not to Wear For Your Family Session!

You've booked your session with me, but you're starting to over analyze what to wear, what do you pick for the kids, do you style everything to the last detail, will you make sure that hubby is looking good, like it's date night?? Do you hit up Old Navy.. and replicate their mannequin family?? All things to consider.. but with Lifestyle/Documentary it's a much more relaxed approach then typical sessions.

Lifestyle & Documentary sessions are not about spending a ton of money on outfits for your session. It can get to the point where one person just feels to overwhelmed and causes not only yourself stress, but puts stress on your family. That's not what booking a session with me should like.. EVER!

An Edmonton Family Session with the Bond's

Corrine & I met a few years ago through home schooling and we're also book-buddies. I'm in her awesome book club where we meet up once a month, go out for appetizers & wine.. catch up on life, kids and talk about whether a book was top shelf or a total flop and hits the bottom drawer.... without her, I just don't read for enjoyment the way I'd like to. She's my literary lifeline, she's my "good-reads"!  
She's always a huge encourager, has a big mama heart and well one of the sweeetest people I know! So, when she called me back in October needing some new photo's for Christmas, we quickly made it happen, hitting up a quiet little spot in the city and did some exploring with her & her awesome crew down by the creek.
