Milk bath sessions are a super big thing right now. I think they are perfect for this time of year too. It makes for a great alternative to going outside in the cold weather. My goal for this session was to make the bath portion feel soft and airy. I also didn’t want to strictly do bath shots. I felt like that was too restricted, so we took a few shots before the bath to give her gallery more variety.

Special thanks to Angela for letting us use her beautiful home.

Milk bath products are from Bebe.de.luxe

One of my favourite things about being a photographer, is getting to watch my clients families grow. It feels like such a privilege to capture these special times for people. I was lucky enough to photograph her big brothers newborn images and now hers. Thank you for the opportunity guys. I really do value each and every repeat client so much.

Enjoy your teaser shots!

Little Harlen was a 5 pound bundle of perfection! I wanted to snuggle her the entire time. She was such a great little baby model for me. Her parents were a delight to hang with too! She reminded me a lot of my Twins when they were newborns. They were itty bitty too. It feels like forever since I’ve photographed a baby under 7 pounds these days. Thank you so much for bringing her in guys! I hope to see you again in the future <3

Miss Rowynn is one special little princess. She decided to make her appearance on christmas morning! What a sweet gift for mamma, as she has 3 boys at home. Mamma got her girl!!!!  I was so excited for her when I found out she had a girl. She was completely convinced her whole pregnancy she was having another boy.  I did some maternity pictures with Lori a couple months ago, so when she asked me to do her newborn session I was absolutely thrilled.  We were both completely on the same page with making her session girly with lots of pinks.

Thanks so much for bringing her in Lori, she is such a beauty . <3

Enjoy your teaser shots.

I am loving this yellow! So happy Grace’s momma let me try it for her session. I think it compliments her skin tone beautifully. Ill definitely be using it again in the near future.  Sweet baby Grace was awake for most of her session, but near the end we were able to get some super sweet curly sleepy shots.  I also had the pleasure of photographing her ‘big’ sister of just 17 months! A tiny toddler and an awake newborn… You can image the chaos in the studio. lol

Thanks so much for bringing them in guys. Enjoy your teaser shots!

What a year. 2016 was a year of learning for me. While Ive been doing photography for a few years part time, it was my first real year of solely being a photographer as my full time career. Like anything worth while, it has not been the easiest journey. I’ve had moments where I thought quitting was the right decision, but the obsession and passion I have for this art made it impossible. Thankfully, I also have the most encouraging husband and support system at home that keep me focused in the most positive way imaginable.

I think being obsessed with photography is an absolute must to keep a business successful. Weather it be the edits I’m working on, the locations I want to explore, my never ending need for props, or my obsession with light or shadows. In one way or another photography is always on my mind. Its like its a piece of me now. That is what keeps me going in this business.

While there are so many more things I want to do in 2017, I sit and look at my past year in review and feel, proud. Proud I stayed true to myself, my passion, my art, and followed my dreams and became what I always wanted to become. A photographer.  Im thankful my husband encouraged me to follow my passion. Now I can show my kids if you follow your hopes and dreams… they too can be anything they want to be with determination, hard work and passion.

I wanted to post 2392834037 more images from this year, but didn’t want to over due it so here are a few I decided I wanted to share before this year comes to an end.

If you got this far into this blog… thank you. You are likely the exact reason I kept going. Supporters, clients and my sweet family. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.

happy new year.

-2016 Melissa
