beach.

It is actually a reservoir. And the water by august is mire. But the sand...and the rocks... It is a hidden gem of Southern Alberta. Or not so hidden, but deserted in august ~ and perfect for adventuring.

 

goodbye town life.

I shamelessly over edit. I have given up trying to cull through and eliminate. I can't. I want my clients to know that I SEE them. That I know the compliment and trust they give me when they hire me. I am a mom and I know the efforts taken up to the very moment the session starts. I know that we all carry details about us in the way we stand, laugh, rest. Details that when we see in a picture years down the road will jar our hearts right back to that moment ~ details possibly forgotten. I don't want any of that lost. So I will forever over edit.

This crew used to live a couple blocks from my family in our old hood. Now they have an expanse of space to call home and it was heaven to shoot in. HEAVEN. Made me question city life for a skip... 

baby minnie.

all is that lovely is right here. One basement suite with one tiny window and one little babe that bring a whole world of light with her.

babybump oh my...

This is one of my people. She is growing another one of my people and it makes my heart feel so many things. I remember vividly how vehemently I adored my baby nieces. I would count the days, hours, seconds to the next visit and then proudly haul them about showing them off like they were a personal accomplishment. And now my baby niece is having a baby. She is going to rock it, too. She carries grace in every movement of her person and she will flood motherhood with it...

I walked away from this session with my heart full and feeling very loved. I was even offered the last Popsicle ~ a very moving gesture from a 4 year old. May I try a little harder to love like that....
