Cutest Christmas Pictures

I had the pleasure of photographing these little ones again this year. Little sister was in for her cake smash this year. I was very excited to have these little cuties in for Christmas pictures. They did amazing! We got all 4 sets done in record time because they were so smiley. I added a bit of Santa magic in some of the pictures. If you are looking for Christmas pictures please book your session right away. Time is limited to get pictures back for Christmas. I’m located in Warren grove PEI, 5 minutes from Cornwall and Charlottetown. And now without further rambling… Check out these cute adorable little ones.

Christmas pictures and outdoor fall pictures

I love this fall time of year, Unfortunately now all the leaves have fallen and its starting to look a little dull outside but when I did this session we still had a few leaves on the trees. These two were a little frozen but we got some great pictures so that makes it worth it right? lol I think so. We went to two of my favorite spots in Cornwall PEI, and then went to my studio in Warren Grove PEI to get some cozy Christmas pictures for there holiday cards.

Sweet baby boy newborn photos

I was so excited to get the chance to photograph this little man for his newborn photo shoot. He was a little older than most of the newborn I have in my studio but he did a great job and we were able to get some amazing portraits. Here are some from the session. If you interested in booking a newborn session in the Charlottetown or Cornwall area please contact me. My studio is in Warren grove PEI. Newborns are one of my favorite sessions to capture for parents because I know from experience we all miss our tiny babies as they grow up way to fast.

Christmas Sessions time

It’s a great time of year to get those Holiday portraits in. I will be holding Christmas sessions all November and the first week of December. The cut-off date for prints to be ordered and delivered before Christmas is December 6th, so book early to give yourself lots of time.

I am excited to offer 4 great sets this year. Keep reading to get a sneak peak…

I’m offering two session options:

1 – My Full Session, where you will have the choice to have all 4 sets and multiple outfit changes. The full session is $150 and includes a complimentary $100 Print Credit to go towards your purchase of prints and digital images.

2 – I am also offering a Mini Session with just one set and only one outfit option for $100 with a $50 print Credit to go towards your purchase of prints and digital images. It’s a way better deal to do all 4!

My Mini Sessions will be held during the week. Weekends are reserved for my Full Sessions, and  I only book 2 Full Sessions each Saturday. I can also hold Full Sessions certain evenings during the week, please contact me to check availability. All my Sessions will be held at my Studio in Warren Grove, PEI.  However, I can make accommodations for families who cant leave the home, please contact me for pricing for these sessions.  Warren Grove is located 5 minutes from Charlottetown and Cornwall, PEI.

Once your session is booked, we will touch base at least three: a consultation, the photo session, and an ordering session. Typically, we start planning your session with a chat on the phone after your session has been booked. This will give me an idea of what you envision and help me plan out your session so we are sure to capture all the memories you are looking for. The photo session itself is always a blast! Be sure to schedule in a little time afterward for a nap for mom and dad, a lot of energy goes into all the jumping up and down and song singing to get those amazing smiles. Lastly, you will come into the studio again for your ordering appointment where you will get to see your amazing images for the first time. At this time you can choose the packages you want or you can go with a la carte items. Orders take approximately 2 weeks.

For this season, when you preorder a package at the time of your booking, I am also offering a FREE 4×6 acrylic framed desk print as a gift to you.  

I have lots of props and some Christmas PJs in a few different sizes. You are more than welcome, and I encourage you, to bring your favorite Christmas book or special items from home. This helps the portraits be extra special with an added personal memory.

So without further ado, here are my amazing sets and packages for the 2017 Christmas photos season.

My kids did such a great job with their Christmas pictures. I am going to have to buy them all! Here are a few more that I’m so in love with…

 

My sleeping Christmas babies.

My sleeping Christmas babies. This was very hard to get since I was tickling my little ones so much to get them to smile with all their other pictures and of course like all kids as soon as I told them not to smile we couldn’t get them to stop. I love this one the most because my youngest reached over and put her arm around her sister. Awww….

 

Santas Coming to town!!!

Santa is Coming to town!!! this is what I was talking about when I said we couldn’t get them to stop smiling. They thought it was the funniest thing in the world to pretend to sleep. Meanwhile, my oldest daughter did an amazing job pretending to sleep. To be honest, this captures real life every night and morning.

This set is huge and can easily fit a big family

I have three Christmas collections to choose from or you can order a la carte. These are the perfect gift for grandparents, aunts, and uncles.

Halloween Charity Event

This year my family (yep all 6 of us) came together to brainstorm how we can help out the community. The idea came of doing a Halloween photo shoot and collection food and donations for the Upper room Charlottetown food bank. We all loved the idea and got right to work. Harmony my 11 year old daughter designed the sets and got everything all ready. Ezra and Haven my 4 and 2 year old, were our models for the set for advertising. We booked 14 clients very quickly and I must say I was a little nervous but my husband kept reassuring that everything will be ok. The day came and Harmony collected donations,  Darius and Michel my 14 year old son and darling husband helped with selling prints after each session. I must say they did pretty good with such little training.  I photographed and most importantly Ezra gave out suckers!!  It was so much fun and we were able to collect $220 in donations and a huge amount of food. We really had such a great time doing this as a family. This is not something I usually would do. I tend to keep my kids as far as I can from my business as I can with a home studio. We were able to make such a difference for our community. Out kids were thrilled to deliver the donation the next day. I strongly believe that doing service for others will bring you the happiest feeling. I had a great time with this session. Here are some photos we captured. Halloween CollageHalloween CollageHalloween CollageHalloween CollageHalloween CollageHalloween CollageHalloween CollageHalloween CollageHalloween CollageHalloween CollageHalloween CollageHalloween CollageHalloween CollageHalloween CollageHalloween CollageNow for Christmas!! lol Contact me if you’re interested in a Christmas sessions or to get on the mailing list.

Tea party for 3

My unicorn sessions happen once a year and they are always so magical!! I hold them outdoors at my studio located right outside Charlottetown, PEI. This is such a special time and I’m so grateful we live in a day in age where we can capture these moments and print them as artwork for our homes.  Amanda (the horses’ trainer/mother) and I get so excited planning these sessions for the children because we know that it’s a little magical moment of their childhood that they will surely remember for a long time. Most of the little girls ask if they truly are unicorns. I find this question so hard to answer because for that moment in time they are real unicorns.

I have the privilege of having these three adorable children come join me for a tea party. Here are a few of moms  favorite images from there session. They loved the unicorns and I couldn’t fool them, They knew they were not real Unicorns 🙂

Tea Party Unicorn Session

 

My unicorn sessions happen once a year and they are always so magical!! I hold them outdoors at my studio located right outside Charlottetown, PEI. This is such a special time and I’m so grateful we live in a day in age where we can capture these moments and print them as artwork for our homes.  Amanda (the horses’ trainer/mother) and I get so excited planning these sessions for the children because we know that it’s a little magical moment of their childhood that they will surely remember for a long time. Most of the little girls ask if they truly are unicorns. I find this question so hard to answer because for that moment in time they are real unicorns.

I was so lucky to have these two sisters join me this year for a session. Little sister was having a rough night, but we were able to capture so many great pictures, and Mom was impressed we got so many amazing shots. Part of what I love about being a photographer is being able to capture the happiness on children’s faces, even when I have a little one in an upset mood they always let a little happiness shine through that I can quickly capture. I understand that it can be scary for a child to have their picture taken. Most of the time I am just meeting the child the day of the photoshoot and I must look so odd to them when they see me with a huge camera in front of my face. Thankful, I can usually charm them with my silliness. I’m so excited for this mom and her girls so see their printed art. They bought a lovely canvas for their home and I know it will be such a wonderful reminder for these little ones of a magical moment in their childhood as they grow. So without further ado, here are mom and grandma’s favorites from the session.

Unicorn Session are one of my all time favorite photo shoots. To see a child’s excitement is the best thing ever. This little gal was very excited to see the unicorns for her unicorn swing session. I host two unicorn sessions every summer so let me know if you want to be notified next year to hear about them first. Here are some of her favorite images from this session.

“Cookies are for closers”- Boss Baby

Cake smash themed sessions are so much fun!
This little guy parent came to me while they was on vacation in Prince Edward Island and wanted a cake smash for their little fellow that was about to turn one. Mom wanted a Boss Baby theme. On the day of the session, everything was seemed to be not turning out as planned. My black balloons were more like purple so I had to run to the store 30 minutes before the session time to get a true black balloon. I got back just in time for this little fellow’s parents but we were in for another twist. Baby boy had just fell asleep on the drive and the cake mom was trying to make didn’t turn out like she wanted and if you are from PEI you know how hard it is to find a cake decorator last minute or at all.. ( ok someone please come to PEI and start a cake decorating business id love you forever) I suggested we just use cookies to go with the cake boss theme and suggested coming back an hour later when baby got some more sleep.. (Never wake a sleeping baby for a photo shoot. Worst thing in the world lol.) So they came back an hour later with a cake with cookies that matched our set perfect and I had more time to get some finishing touches on the set. Baby woke up happy. The day flipped around and we had an amazing session. This little guy was so much fun to photograph and big sister was such a huge help. Big sister got to try some of the cake as well and she helped feed her brother. He really loved splashing in the bath after he got all messy. It has a great photo shoot. Here are some of moms favorite pictures.
