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.

Get your images off the computer and onto your walls!

Guilty as charged! 

It's true.. I do forget to print my own images as much as the next guy! My goal this year has been to print as much as I can for myself, for my kids, for my hubby..and well for my lonely walls! It's been a little over a year when we moved into our first-brand-new-built-for-us-house. A lifetime of marriage and we did something we thought we'd never do and that was build new.
