the hobbs farm | edmonton family photographer

I had the incredible privilege to hang out and photograph the Hobbs crew on their farm just outside of Edmonton, Alberta. Jenna and I have been friends on social media for what seems like forever (I can’t even remember for how long haha) and it was so great to final be able to meet and spend some time with her and her beautiful family. I was welcomed Sunday night with wine – yessss – and great conversation and after a good nights sleep we woke up super early (well not really for us, we all have children lol), got the kids fed & dressed and the adults caffeinated, we set out for a tour around their 29 acres. We hoped for fog but the weather had other plans that were just as gorgeous. Hallie, her eldest has such fiery spirit, is guarded at first but is quick to be your best friend. She has such love for her animals and is a total daddy’s girl, I felt like I was staring at myself at age 7. Hanna is just the sweetest thing, very outgoing and loveable. And then there’s the twins…Thea & Beau….Thea is the feisty one that loves to test the waters and Beau is in love with his momma, and honestly the cutest little things. Jenna is a fellow photographer that has the same issue that most of us photographer moms do, we’re not in the photos….so her only request was just that…she wanted to actually be in them for a change!

I hope you enjoy these, Jenna, thank you so much for inviting me into your home :)

I can't get over this shoot. Makes me all emotional (in the good kind of way) looking at these. It makes me think, " this is life, this is what it's all about, this is the kind of stuff I want to remember". Anyways what a beautiful family, so beautifully captured.

This is probably one of the most beautiful places in Banff National Park....but holy is it ever packed with tourists (tourists that would literally stand directly in front of me and to take photos of my kids *eye roll*) This shoot was sooooo difficult to navigate but I somehow managed to uniquely position myself so hide all the tourists behind trees lol (I did include one images with a few in there so you can have an idea of what I was working with!). For being October it was still relatively decent out weather wise and we managed to get a bit of hiking in without the kids complaining about being cold, win for me! haha   Clothes: Zara ...
