A glimpse of 2019

A glimpse of 2019

Blogging about our review of the year is not popular anymore. Now, we stick to Instagram and the top 9 most liked images on the app.

But I wanted to show you what my year looked like, from my point of view. The images that stayed with me, even after the session was done and delivered.

And I am looking forward to seeing you in front of my camera in 2020! Let’s talk!

Hello 2020!

Hello 2020!

Hello friends!

Last time I blogged was in June 2019. I decided to try again this year. No, it’s not a resolution. Haha!

So, what happened in 2019? A lot! But we are going to focus on 2020.

Here are a few things I want you to know about this year. I want to talk about the things that worked in 2019 and that will continue this year:

  • my Empowered Portraits have been such a success! My clients love that short and sweet session that leaves them with fun photos that actually look like them. Check it out here!
  • my Editorial Motherhood Portraits have been a big hit too. Mothers need to be in front of the camera with their kiddos. I had the pleasure of having some sweet motherhood sessions in my studio and I am excited about the upcoming ones.
  • of course, the Truth in You sessions are still there. They have become a landmark in my marketing and I am proud to tell you that lots of women have stepped in front of my camera and been brave enough to share their truth with me, and sometimes the world.

These sessions are staying in 2020 and I hope I will see you in front of my camera soon.

Editorial Motherhood Portraits

Editorial Motherhood Portraits

For this year’s Mother’s Day, I wanted to celebrate motherhood with beautiful editorial portraits. Motherhood is challenging and can be hard. Mothers deserve a break sometimes. But I know that what they cherish the most is a gorgeous photograph with their kids.

All they want is a lovely picture of them with their children. Of course, we all have great phones now and kids have their life documented every day. But it’s important for moms to be in the picture. That’s why I wanted to offer these editorial portraits.

Take a look at all the beautiful families who booked a session with me!

And these kids are just the cutest!

I would love to photograph some dads, so send me a message if you want to book a Father’s Day photo session.

Editorial portrait session in Edmonton

Editorial portrait session in Edmonton

Taking portraits is my favourite thing to do. I am never tired of photographing people, but it gets even more interesting when I get to photograph someone so beautiful as Monique. I found Monique on Instagram. She is a young model in Edmonton. I kept seeing photos of her popping up in my feed. So, I decided that I wanted to do an editorial portrait session with her. And that’s what we did!

Monique is incredible. Sweet, professional, so good at posing and those freckles!!! I can’t get enough of her face! Haha!

Enjoy the photos!

Monique is represented by World MGMT.

Urban lifestyle photo session in Edmonton

Urban lifestyle photo session in Edmonton

Every photo session is different and this one had its own challenges. My client and I were supposed to take photos outside. But winter in Edmonton is always full of surprises and the day before the shoot, the temperatures suddenly dropped to ridiculous numbers, plus a wind which would freeze you to death if you would stay outside more than 5 minutes.

So, we started our urban lifestyle photo session in a parkade but quickly realized that shooting outside was going to be impossible. That’s when my friend Ali from Blondy Photography came to the rescue. I had mentioned that I would come to shoot in her home studio Home by Blondy for the second part of the shoot, but we had to head over to her place after 15 minutes.

But this is the interesting part of a photo shoot, to go with the flow, have a plan B, and be prepared to change your plans.

Love,

Em
