When I dropped off Stacie and Marc’s maternity photos Stacie gave me the heads up that I should be hearing some news about baby any day now! So I wasn’t surprised when a couple of days later I got a text telling me about their new baby boy, Arie!
I was so excited to meet him and he must have been excited about his shoot too because he did not want to miss a minute of it! He is so sweet and so loved! You can just see the love and adoration when Marc and Stacie cuddle him, change him, feed him…..they are such naturals! It was a pleasure to capture these images of this adorable family of 3!
A few weeks ago when I was in Winkler I had a fun little shoot planned with my cousins daughter Austyn! When her mom and I started planning the shoot I instantly had the idea to bring her play tent outside. Jayci suggested bring along some pillows and other items from her room and BOOM, we had one pretty little photoshoot! This shoot goes to show that you can find gorgeous locations almost anywhere, because we shot these beside my brother-in-laws junk pile in their back yard. Ha ha. It’s one of my new favourite locations!
I knew this shoot was going to be lots of fun because Austyn is loads of fun! She showed up to the shoot with her little backpack full of clothes and goodies, she even brought me some fruit snacks just in case I got hungry….or just incase she got hungry and she had finished hers already 😉 We played with princess stickers, twirled, sang songs and talked about all her favourite princesses. Austyn told me her cousin Arie liked princesses too…I asked if she knew who Arie’s favourite princess was and Austyn answered “ME!”. Seriously, never a dull moment with this sweetheart!
We finished up this shoot with family pics in their new house! I love these family pics…such a fun way to document their new home before it’s finished and this will make a really neat keepsake to have on a shelf once the home is completed!
You might remember Cooper from the blog a couple years ago, he was just a little dude the last time we saw him! Since then he’s moved with his family to Edmonton and became a big brother!! Lucky for me Cooper and his little sister Brynn made time for a photo shoot in their most recent trip to Winnipeg and we had so much fun!
Cooper is such a fun guy!! We talked about the Blue Jays, chased bubbles and played with swatted mosquitos. Ok the mosquito part wasn’t fun, but there were so many of them it’s burned into my memory!! Haha. Brynn was celebrating her birthday the weekend they were out so it was perfect timing for photos! She even stood on her own (cautiously! Lol) for a few pics! Such a cute smile and gorgeous eyes!
Summer! Summer! Summer! What says summer more than a kiddie pool full of beach balls and balloons, flamingoes, pineapples and three sweet little summer girls! This shoot was SO much fun to plan! It came together pretty quickly when I decided I wanted to do a summer fun shoot with three of my favourite little girls. There are a couple DIY bloggers I follow on Instagram (@aww.sam, @studioDIY) that are such an inspiration to me…they’re always creating fun little projects and I often think….how can I make that work for a photoshoot!? Their use of colour is on point!! And it totally challenges me to see how I can incorporate little extra bits of coloured styling into my shoots!
Stella, Emily and Abby were the perfect little models! Stella and Emmy had lots of fun playing with all the little props and Abby….well she just does what she does best…sits around looking CUTE! So lucky I have these sweet girls to call upon when i’m feeling inspired and need to shoot something fun! Their moms are always willing to bring them along to any crazy shoots I have planned!
