8 Amazing Facts About the Placenta

8 Amazing Facts About the Placenta

I always love to get a photo of the placenta at a birth (and try to convince everyone in the family to take a look at it, ha!). It is an incredibly fascinating organ! It supplies nutrients, fluids and oxygen to a baby for an entire pregnancy. The placenta connects the developing fetus (baby) to the wall of the mother’s uterus via the umbilical…

Okay. So seeing little babies that I have the privilege of photographing as newborns, grow into toddlers is such a delight. I love toddlers. They have so many big emotions, expressions and they always are doing weird things, which are super fun to photograph (not always so fun to…

What a beautiful day it is when you get to witness the miracle of birth. I was called early in the morning and met Aly + Jordan at the hospital. (Side note: I love when I get to attend births at hospitals close to home, the quick drive is…

These are the Days // 365 Daily Photo Project - September 2018

Ahhh September. Usually we get some summer spill-over in September, but Summer seemed to end in August this year. Doesn’t September always feel like the start of a new year? My daughter started Grade 2 and my middle started Kindergarten. They are LOVING being in school, which is amazing. My youngest also started preschool (first kid to ever go to preschool!) and he…

Day in the Life sessions are one of my favourites to photograph. I get to capture some real, sweet and often funny moments that so often go unnoticed. This family had a half DITL session, and we got to spend the morning together! I arrived around 7:45am and joined them while they…

These are the Days // 365 Daily Photo Project - July + August 2018

This summer has been crazy busy for me, business-wise, but when I haven't been working, it's been so nice to be able to go do things as a family without worrying about school schedules. I was so happy to get a few weeks off-call this summer since I had decided to take births on! In July I had 3 births in 5 days, plus the aftermath of newborn sessions and fresh…

Samantha's family is one of my favourites to photograph and film. Her kids have so much sass and personality...not to mention they are so stinking adorable. I made a beautiful family film for them a couple years ago, you can see it HERE. Sorry in advance for the oversharing 😉 FIRST, a moving portrait of this scrumptious boy...

 These are the Days // 365 Daily Photo Project - June 2018

June flew, as all the months seem to do! This month was the last month of school, so my daughter is done Grade 1, and my middle one also turned 5 this month. They're getting so big! My mom (who lives next door) was away for the whole month, and my Mother in Law came for a visit with my 9 year old nephew from Alberta. I was on-call for a few births and appreciated the extra…
