This mom was stunning, almost like a princess out of a fairy tale, and her little boy was the same. I just wanted to share a sneak peek for her because he was such a good little boy and I had to share this magical maternity shot.
He is the apple of their eyes and was such a good boy for his pictures. My daughter gifted this session to her teacher as a baby present and I couldn’t of been more happier to photograph this beautiful family. I am so thankful that my daughter was able to enjoy her as a teacher and so very grateful for the school she goes to. They brought the little giraffe hat, and it photographed so well on him.
I could never get enough of photographing this beautiful, strong, independent mother of 2 (soon to be 3)! Anyone can see what a wonderful, loving mother she is and how much her son adores her. I photographed him as a newborn and he has grown to be such a fine young man. See his newborn session here:
These 2 little girls were such a gift to mommy and daddy and I was honoured when asked to photograph them. They were so tiny, even at there age and they honestly did really well for being 6 weeks. Mom and Dad were surprised that they were having twins, especially after it took them a while to get pregnant with their first daughter. Little Everly had to be readmitted to the hospital so mom and dad have had quite the first month, hence getting pictures so late. I wonder if you can tell who is who?
My biggest guilty pleasure is volunteer work. When my oldest daughter was 4 months old I joined Kin Canada. Kin Canada is an all-Canadian service organization made up of dedicated member volunteers who serve their community’s greatest needs through hosting and sponsoring events and community service projects. Kin Canada has close to 500 Kin, Kinsmen and Kinette clubs from coast-to-coast. Clubs typically raise more than $18 million per year; almost $1 million of this is donated to cystic fibrosis research and care, our national service project.
Currently I am a member of The Kin Club of Fort Edmonton and this year we put on our First Annual Princess Ball fundraiser to raise money and support for Cystic Fibrosis Canada. I cannot say enough about this event and how great if felt to be a part of it. As a photographer I donated my services to the event and set up a photo booth to raise further funds for the cause. Since Today is Rare Disease Day I thought it fitting to Blog about the event.
As you will find on Cystic Fibrosis Canada’s twitter feed (@CFCanada), “There are 4000 Canadians living with #cysticfibrosis. Each week, two more children are diagnosed and one person dies from this #raredisease“.
Here are some memories from the Princess Ball. It was Held on February 22nd at the Empire Ballroom at the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald here in Edmonton. The children got to meet the Princesses and dance with them. We provided a lunch, candy bar, craft tables, and more. It honestly was a little girls dream. Our Club (Fort Edmonton Kin Club) President also got engaged at the event so a lot of special memories were made.
