2016 | A year of acceptance

Each year I am blown away by my clients, their willingness to allow me to create memories that will be forever kept and passed down to the wee ones they are squeezing and tickling in each of those images. Sometimes this passion is so strong that it hurts to think about and makes my heart heavy.

truth bomb in 3…2…1…

This year was an incredibly difficult season for me mentally. Having anxiety and being introverted is tough in this craft and I have definitely struggled this year with balancing the constant overwhelming feeling of doubt and my fear of emails and replying to people via social media – please tell me i’m not the only one that is terrified of emails?!?!? For some reason it almost seems shameful that I let my anxiety win but with 2016 drawing to a close I have taken initiative to better myself and my business this coming year by choosing my love for photography and creating emotive images for my clients over listening to that horrible inner voice that tells me i’m not worth it.

I am greater than my fear.

Jayme – 6 months | red deer family photographer
Sweet Jayme is 6 months and since Aislinn was still pretty unsure of her new sister when we did Jayme's newborn photos, we decided to focus mostly on their connection for this one. These two were in such good moods on Sunday and I am so happy I got to see such genuine interactions between them. Towards the end of the session, little Jayme slipped down and bumped her head on the arm of the couch and was notably upset. The last shot is probably one of my favourites shots ever. A loving tender moment between mother and daughter, that little tear just kills me....
