Mila and I like to hang out in the evenings and find places to photograph my clients. I love these nights. I get to practice with my camera and my favourite subject (for like 5 minutes) and we run and play and giggle and just enjoy each other and the outdoors. She is a little bundle of love. She greets everyone with a giant contagious smile and most likely a hug. She is starting to talk a lot and she comes out with full on sentences that make me laugh so hard. She makes my heart BURST with love and happiness. I’m extremely grateful for this amazing human and I’m pretty grateful I have a talent to document her in ways I can remember (because my memory sucks) all the little important details, like the sun on our faces in the crisp fall air and the way her pigtails swish in the wind and bounce when she runs. All the little details that I want to hold onto forever and always.
Love you so much sweet girl xox

Her back pack. She brings it everywhere and refers to it as her “cak cak” We are working on her pronunciation lol. Can you guess what she calls her socks…HA!calgary-family-photographer-5487

MOM you comin too? MOM

Last year her dad pointed out that sometimes I hold my thumb between my fingers. My whole life I never noticed I did that. Going through these photos I noticed, she does it too. Heart Burst.

“cold hands mom”

Moms scarf is the perfect little Mila blanket for chilly evenings.



I wanted to blog every single image from this session! We had a fantastic warm fall evening filled with laughs and exploring. This is the EIGHTH time I’ve photographed this family. They’ve been with me since the beginning and they are always so relaxed and give the kids the freedom to have fun! YES! Mom told me she makes an album from every session and has them in their living room. The kids love looking through them and think it’s super cool to see how small they once were and how they’ve grown over the years. YES! I love hearing that her photos aren’t just sitting on her computer and instead are being enjoyed often by the whole fam. Print your photos people! This family and this session makes my heart so happy! Love you guys and love documenting your journey!!! xoxo.
