red deer family lifestyle photographer ➾ Jensen

 This lifestyle session is simple.

Just my son, my bed and my camera but it means more to me than anything other session I have done…

A few days ago,  we found out that our baby to be (due in April) has a heart defect and will need surgery within the first week of life with a possibility of 3 subsequent surgeries after that until the age of 4. Not the greatest way to kick off a new year. I was quite low and depressed but knew that I needed to get out of the funk. I have always said that photography is my therapy, when i’m behind the camera I don’t think about anything other than what is going on in that exact moment  and this session I photographed who I love the most…my 2 1/2 year old son, Jensen. Normally (and I don’t blame him), he HATES having his photo taken but on this day he was all for it! Being a ham in front of the camera, posing, and for anyone that has or has photographed a busy toddler, they know that is a difficult task haha. We shot this right before and after nap time so I let him take his snooze in our room so I could get some sweet and innocent sleeping shots. Just watching him sleep gave me such a sense of calm and determination. We can overcome this, it’s just a bump in the road….our little babe will pull through beautifully <3

everyone, please welcome sweet little Jayme to the world. We already share a bond in the spellings of our name, which is why I absolutely fell in love with her right off the bat....well that and the fact that she is incredibly adorable, and has SO many smiles! Sarah is one of the most nurturing mothers I have ever met, so calm and layed back, it was a real joy to watch her interact with her sweet new bundle. We tried really hard to get some photos with her big sister, Aislinn, but she still isn't too sure about her little sister so for now she enjoys her from afar ;) She is just beautiful, so happy I had the chance to spend some time wi ...

Some of you may recognize this beautiful family from a few posts I did this spring. Lyndsey is a good friend of mine and back in the spring she was diagnosed with breast cancer, at the young age of 29. (You may take a look back at the beginning of her journey here & here) nearly 6 months has passed, full of chemo, sickness, good days and bad days, struggles and  triumphs. But I am happy to say that her chemo was discontinued early due to the great response the cancer was having to it. We decided to celebrate by having a little lifestyle session in their home at the beginning of October. They snuggled in bed, read their favourite books, ...
