Look at the stars, look how they shine for you

We should have known better than to plan an outdoor session on May long weekend, right?  Right!  The day before our shoot the forecast was looking WET and dreary so I preemptively emailed Ayli to find out if she would be interested in changing our plans from an outdoor evening shoot to a morning celebration session!  She was game for a change in plans and we made the right decision because we woke up to a wet and dreary morning the next day!

It had been a year since I had seen Josh and Sam!  Josh was a tiny little babe the last time I saw him and now he was a curious, crawling toddler!  Sam was just as polite and sweet as ever, always ready to offer a helping hand and was a major help in getting the balloons all in place ready for the shoot!  My favourite part of this shoot is all the sweet images of the boys with their parents…you can just feel the love!

Down here all the fish is happy

This past weekend we got a little spring surprise in the form of SNOW (ugh!) but inside we were playin’ and pretending we were under the sea!   A few weeks ago Tracy showed me some outfits she had been eyeing for the boys and I knew from that pineapple shirt they would be the perfect models for this shoot idea I had floating around (ha ha) in my head.  Nick and Jack were so much fun!  How lucky am I to have friends who bring their kids to me whenever I need models?   I appreciate it so much!!

There was so much fun and excitement with all these sea creatures to play with!  Balloons always make such a fun photoshoot and these fish balloons from Anagram were absolutely perfect!

Enjoy these pics as we dream about summer and all the beach days to come!

Young hearts run free

It might be a dreary morning outside…with snow on the way (NO!) so I decided I would brighten things up with a super springy session I had last month with baby Abby!  I love all her different smiles…she was practicing hard before this shoot! 😉

This little lady tried really hard to trick me into playing instead of taking photos, bringing me books and plopping herself down in my lap mid shoot!  It was really hard not to put my camera down and just have a little Abby cuddle, but we had to get back to the job at hand and it was worth it….love all these pics of this cutie!!

Far, far away… Behind the moon. Beyond the rain.

It’s hard to believe it’s already Stella’s 4th birthday!!!  Where does time go?!  We have seen her grow up so much this year and turn into a little lady!  I love her spunk and how a hug from her can turn any bad day into a good one!  This year it’s all about Doc McStuffins, Paw Patrol, princess dresses, Barbies and Mary Poppins!  She is starting to sound so grown up, using phrases she hears the adults around her say, and it’s so cute!

I always change my mind a few times before I decide on an idea for her birthday photos, this year was no different but when I saw this balloon rainbow Photo Booth idea on one of my favourite party blogs, Oh Happy Day, I just knew I had to try it!  I was setting up the morning of the shoot and three balloons in I had to wake up Chris to help me….I was afraid I had bitten off more than I could chew and I was WORRIED!  When my family arrived I wasn’t even half done yet, EEKS!  So Stella had some time to play while everyone else pitched in to help tie, tape and blow up balloons.  It really was a family affair!  And well worth it….it was perfect for the photos!

I will never grow tired of our fun shoots together!!! I hope she never does either!
