Meet Miss Rylee

Meet Little Miss Rylee, who decided to surprise Mommy and Daddy by arriving a little early!

She was Due January 9 2014, but arrived on December 4th 2013, weighing in at a whopping 5lbs 11oz and 19 inches long! Not bad for being over a month early!
Rylee spent 2 weeks in the NICU due to premature lungs, fluid in her lungs, and feeding issues. But was finally released and came to me for some snuggles on December 23rd just before Christmas!

Christmas Minis Day 2

Today was the last day of the Christmas Minis. I had so much fun this weekend and I loved hearing the awesome comments on the set up, and also listening to each and every one of the people that came through the studio, talk about the squishy, slippery fake snow! LOL It was very squishy, slippery and super messy but it was so worth it! So happy with how all of the pictures turned out!

Here are a few sneaks from today!

First up Sweet Little Bridget… who is now 3 months old!!! And her Big Sister Chelsea!

First ones to actually take aim at me… And each other! LOL

Another one of my sweet newborns is growing up too quick!!

Thank you to every one who came out this weekend, and a HUGE Thank you to everyone who brought a toy donation for a child in need this holiday season!

Blessings, Becky

Christmas Minis Day 1

It was so good to see some littles ones who I have not seen since last year and even a few new faces, and few that I saw as babies that are HUGE now! lol
It was definitely fun watching each child… and adult, experience the texture and feeling of the fake snow… easy way to explain… feels like cold mashed potatoes… and is VERY slippery. Needless to say there will be a lot to clean up at the end of this weekend but it’s been so much fun!! Here are just a few sneak peeks from today!

Check out these awesome jammies that this family sported during their session!

So.. I had a bucket of more powdery fake snow that I thought parents could toss up in the air and have a light snow effect to the pictures… What I had in my head was slightly different to how it turned out but I can’t help but laugh at these! Too funny!!

Next up we have a family of … Elves! Arn’t these elf ear warmers ADORABLE!!  Seriously! I need a pair!!

How flippin cute are these two brother’s?! Little Mr. B would stop everything to make sure his big brother was saying cheese. It was too funny!

Well it’s been a busy day so off to bed for me! More minis tomorrow! Stay tuned!!

Lemonade Stand Mini Sessions

Today was a gorgeous day to spend at the park with a bunch of awesome kiddies and a lemonade stand!
Big thanks to all of you awesome clients who signed up and brought your kiddies, to my son Kaden who was my little helper today, and to my husband for making such an awesome lemonade stand for us to use today!

Here are a few sneak peeks from today!

Stay tuned for announcements for Pumpkin Stand Mini Sessions in October!!

Meet 3 day old Little Miss Bridget

I have had the privilege of following this family through so many of their precious moments in life! Not only have I been friends with Mom since high school, and she was one of my bridesmaids when I got married… I have been able to take part in her life journey and capture a lot of precious memories for them from maternity pictures for baby #1, newborn pictures of Chelsea (baby#1), mini sessions, wedding, pregnancy announcement for baby #2, gender announcement for baby#2, maternity pictures for baby #2, aire pump pictures (see below lol) and now newborn pictures of sweet baby Bridget (baby #2)! Thank you so much for including me in this journey Christine and Troy! I can’t wait to see what’s in store for us in the future!!!

I am so excited to finally be able to show this picture that we have been working on for over 9 months!
Photo inspired by the very creative Quebec photographer, Patrice Laroche.

Beware… it’s a bit of a long post LOL… AT just 3 days old Bridget slept pretty much the whole entire session, and only semi waking to eat quickly, so I got too many adorable pictures I couldn’t choose just a couple for the sneak peek LOL.

Awesome hat made by Bridget’s Grammy!

Precious little Mermaid! Another item made with love from Grammy!

Proud Big Sister Chelsea!

Thank you again Christine and Troy for allowing me to take part in this adventure! I had so much fun! Can’t wait until baby #3! HAHA
