{keepin' the babies comin'}

Thanks for looking!


{sneak peek baby!} -winnipeg baby photographer

So with this newborn girl (3 in a row) I end my run of boys.
As does this family!!
After 4 boys they finally welcome a beautiful little girl to round out the family!
I spent most of my time with this baby girl but we did try to get a sibling shot.
For any photographers reading this, we all know how difficult it is to get it,but you gotta try and these boys were a dream!!
Really, I have never met such a well behaved group of brothers! Now I'm sure they have their moments, as any mom would be quick to point out and one had to go have some quiet time at one point. But this mother was so patient and calm, it almost made me wish we had tried for more children...almost!!

If you are waiting on a gallery I am working away as we speak to get the last of them finished.

I'll be posting snaek peeks today to tide you over!

Thanks for looking!

I did my last 2 sessions of the year this past weekend. It's been a crazy ride this past few months but it's been GREAT! Thank you so much to all my clients in 2008 who have let me capture a moment of their lives. I am so lucky to be doing what I love!
This will probably be my last post before Christmas so I want to wish you all a very happy holiday season!
I will be back after Christmas updating the blog & website with new pictures and information as I shake things up in the new year!

Here is our Christmas card!

{sneak peek}

***Please scroll down to bottom of post for update on session openings!***

Here's yet another newborn and his family!
This family is related to the the girls on my blog header and we discovered my husband plays hockey with this Dad! Love when I find connections to my clients. It's such a small world!

This was a last minute shoot and I am so happy I was able to fit them in! This little guy was great for me. It's always iffy with "older" newborns- if you can call 2.5 weeks, old ,lol!!
But he slept and let me move him all around.

His big brother was a busy little bee but we managed to keep him one spot for about 5 minutes!

Enjoy your sneek peak "T" family!

Love this black & white, but had to show these gorgeous blue eyes!!

** *Just an update on 2008-09 sessions. I am BOOKED through January 2009!!! I will be making exceptions for newborns and maternity clients only!! I have opened up my schedule for February and March, so contact me for more info!***

{more baby girl}

I'm working on the session from a couple of posts back and I just had to share a few more. This was such a great session! Great baby, great mom, and great second shooter! My sister tagged along on this shoot as this is one of her best friends. She is an aspiring photographer and may accompany me on other sessions in the future!
It was so nice to have help with posing and ideas. She helped me get the shot I've been trying to get for months! Thanks Rosie!

I had to force myself to choose only 5! I could've posted ALL of them!!!

Thanks for looking!

Your gallery will be ready in the next couple days "J"!! Thanks so much for letting me spend time with your boys!

Just an FYI...if you are expecting a baby and were thinking about a session, call me when you are still pregnant!! This helps me make and keep time in my schedule for you!

{news & mine}

I will be out the "office" for the next few days and will return any e-mails or inquiries on Sunday. For all my American visitors, Happy Thanksgiving!! I am off to take advantage of their amazing Black Friday Sales! Although our dollar is not as great as it was this summer!

And since I have to post a picture, it is a photography blog after all..
But first, the back story...
My youngest,"I" has beautiful curly hair. I love it! Well her, not so much! One night while I was lying down with her before bed she said, in her saddest, most pitiful voice, "Mama, (yes I'm a mama, not mommy, not mom, but mama!) I want to have straight hair like everyone else in my family."
Just about broke my heart. So, of course I had to pull out my straightener the next day to give her straight hair.
She looks so much older this way, that I said I would never do it again!! But I'm sure I will, she loved it so much!

Thanks for looking!

{late sneak peek!}

Here's a long overdue sneak peek!
I'm a bit behind on pretty much everything these days!
I'm up to my eyeballs in editing and card design. So if you are waiting for anything, galleries, cards, orders... thank you so much for being patient!!
I will get to everyone as quickly as I can!!

On to the peek!!
You can imagine my glee when I poked my head into the car and spotted this cutie!!
I love deep brown eyes!!! And this boy sure has 'em!

Sorry for the wait "A", it'll be worth it!!!

Thanks for looking!

{perception vs. reality...a sneak peek}

Now, the perception in this first picture would probably be; beautiful couple, in love (they are having a baby!) dotting husband whispering sweet nothings in his glowing wife's ear. The expression on her face might say, "that's my man"...


While the first part is all true, the sweet nothings?? Probably went something like this...."Is this almost over?? Do I really have to be in these pictures? You know I hate getting pictures taken, right??"

I know her expression really says, "Do you SEE what I have to put up with??"

Sorry "A & T" just had to tease you a bit!! They were great and although "T" really doesn't like to get his picture taken, he did everything I asked him too with a smile. Just you wait, "T", until the newborn shoot!

"A" has been on bed rest for weeks now, as she'd been having preterm labour and delivered her first baby 10 weeks early! So we kept it real and hung out in the bedroom, where her an "M" spend lots of their day.

Little "M" is almost 3 now and is waiting for her new baby...

Thanks for looking!

{what is the matter with me??}

2 posts in one day??
Don't I have anything better to do?
Yes, actually, I have editing to do, orders to place, orders to package, storyboards to design, dishes to do, floors to wash and don't even get me started on the laundry!
But I had to come give you the heads up about some changes going on in the new year!

#1: Session fees are going up. In the new year, session fees will be $100-$150 depending on the type of session you choose.
Types of sessions are: Simple session, Newborn & Maternity session, Senior(graduate) session, Storybook session, family session.
#2: I will be offering digital files and digital collections!
#3: New and cool products to go with collections!

I will post more about the collections and details about digital files and products, but I am still working on it and what to have all my T's crossed before I give out too much information!

I haven't posted alot of images lately so here are a few of my kiddos playing in the first snowfall!
