shop the skinny | alberta brand photographer

The boys and I set out to the mountains at the beginning of November to enjoy one of the last – and very unusual – warm days of the year (it was 14C degrees that day!) for one of our favourite shops in Edmonton, Shop The Skinny! We stayed at one of our favourite places in Dead Man’s Flats and it has the cutest little abandoned cabin & windmill ever. I’ve been wanting to photograph the boys here forever and now was the perfect opportunity!

After lunch we zipped up the mountain to spray lakes and pulled over at the absolutely most gorgeous location. It was so perfect….the crisp smell of the trees and fresh snow…..I could believe how quiet it was, not a sound but the wind through the trees. Then out of nowhere appeared a little whisky jack….and then three more….then another four! I had no idea they were so friendly and then came right over and jensen was able to feed a few of them. He was thrilled!

Mommy & Me Connection Session – Chelsea | Salmon Arm Photographer
Chelsea and her crew came all the way from Kelowna for their mini session and they came prepared! Hair, make up, custom dresses, the whole package! Chelsea's little girl had a custom dress made from an amazing local designer (Nook Designs) that were made with 100 year old bone beads that were given to her from a tribe on the island (if I remember correctly!). These were paired with custom shorts for her sweet little man and everything just came together perfectly! Chelsea's dress is actually made by a designer in Victoria (Reclamation) out of old lace from a curtain, seriously gorgeous. SaveSave

red deer photographer ➾ 5/52
This week has been a tough one with my little Jensen. Pushing boundaries and seeing how far he can take certain situations, talking back and being utterly defiant. It's been a struggle but I am trying my hardest to kill him with kindness so to speak and not resorting to giving "time outs" like I used to in the past (clearly not working anymore) Instead offering solutions based on options. i.e.. instead of  "eat your dinner or you're going right to bed", I offer him a choice - "Would you like to stay here and eat your dinner or would you like to go straight to bed?" It takes his train of thought from, 'this is what I want to do' to 'these are ...
