Sparrow Family | Winter Maternity Session

It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost 4 years since I first met Christie and Derek. Over the years, I have had the pleasure of documenting many important milestones for them, beginning with their engagement. I love that they have continued to choose me to photograph their family. This past January, I met up with Christie, Derek and their sweet little girl, Mila, to take some photos because they were expecting again. We lucked out with the timing of the session because the temperature was mild and Edmonton had just experienced another snowfall.

Since this session, Christie and Derek have welcomed a beautiful daughter, Callie (photo in the post).

Christie and Derek, thank you for being such amazing clients and friends!

Morgan & Rory

What can I say about Morgan and Rory?  Well, I could say that they had the most beautiful wedding day and have impeccable style and class; these things are all very true.  When I think of Morgan and Rory, what stands out the most, is that they are such a genuine and gracious couple (…here I go getting emotional).

I first met these two a couple of years ago.  From the moment we met, I knew they were to become more than just clients of mine, but also my friends.  Each time we met, we wound up spending most of the time just chatting about common interests and day to day life.  Morgan and Rory put their complete trust into me to capture their memories.  When they became excited about an idea, so did I and vise versa.

To this day, we still check in with each other to say hello.  Morgan and Rory have also been extremely supportive of my passion for photography, and for that I feel extremely blessed.  I would also take this time to say, THANK YOU for the lovely Christmas card I received in the mail.  You two are amazing!

Lots of Love,
