Oh The Places You’ll Go …

Kindergarten Graduates

 

These sessions hold a special place in my heart as I’ve been doing them ever since I’ve started my photography business.

The children are the perfect age to be photographed and are so cute!  I love chatting with them about their favourite things and it helps to make them more comfortable.

 

These sessions are still being offered throughout the month of June!

They are $175 which includes 2 digital images and a print package.  Caps and gowns are provided and are cleaned/sanitized after every session.

The backdrop is kept neutral to make these images classic and simple.

 

Here are the wonderful kiddos I’ve had the privilege of photographing so far!

So beautiful!

Her little brother jumped in for a few photos too!

What a beauty! Kahnle (pronounced Cane-Lee) rocked the pink AND blue gown! I’m so glad her mama chose to order both in prints.

That red hair and blue eyes!  Georgia, you are stunning!

Her mama and I are childhood friends and I can’t help but tear up knowing both our littles are growing so fast.

This is my baby, Lewis!  He has actually changed so much since this photo so I’m tempted to do some retakes, ha!

Glitter Sessions are finally here! These sessions have be months in the making (with some delays along the way).

Honey, I Blew Up The Kids!

If you are a late night Pinterest surfer like myself, you have seen the trend of huge, black and white photos of children displayed in people’s homes.

I love using Pinterest as inspiration and a creativity boost to put my own spin on sessions, but you can’t go wrong with something so classic and timeless.

The Honey, I Blew Up the Kids sessions are designed for your walls and not your hard drive!

And they will be my first step in transitioning to ordering appointments.

Instead of online proofing galleries, we will get together again within 48-72 hours after your session to view your images. I will help you guys decide on what images to print, what size to print them and where to display them in your home.

Web-sized digitals will be included with your print purchase.

Any amount of siblings and even mom and dad can be added to the session for a booking fee of only $99!

Prints are purchased separately and start at $125.

Booking will open soon and a print product price list will be available to view.

I hope that the convenience of ordering prints with me will help you enjoy your images so much more by seeing them every day and get it crossed off your to do list!

Photographer’s note : You guys have no idea how hard it is to get true, black and white images and not just grey scale, haha!  I’ve done a lot of research and watched many tutorials on how to properly light my white backdrop and adjust things in Photoshop.

 

Inside the Box

When I first saw the In The Box collages on Pinterest, I thought to myself, what an amazing idea!  I was so intrigued on how to learn all about this type of photography.  I love learning new things and am always up for a challenge!

The photo session itself takes place in my home studio and I have 2 actual boxes that are 3x3x2 feet and a larger one that is 4x4x2 feet.

I have had clients feel a little silly climbing into this giant box and having their photo taken but it doesn’t take long for them to warm up and have a laugh.

Every collage is pre-designed and customized for every client so that no two collages are the same.  These sessions give me an outlet to express my creativity while also capturing your family’s dynamic and individual personalities.

These sessions can be for just about any occasion – friends, family (immediate and extended), holidays, birthdays, just because, etc.

And best of all, these sessions are “Dad Approved”! Here is a review from Randy :

“The opportunity to have Amie capture the love my family shares was priceless. The experience during the box session was made enjoyable by Amie’s creativity and friendly personality. The final product is by far my favourite family picture. It truly captured my children’s innocence and the interests we each enjoy.”

Mamasaurus

 

Writing this blog post tonight, I honestly feel like I’ve known Tayla from Mamasaurus forever.  We met in March of 2018 at the Mommylicious market. She admired my work and we talked about all things baby and pregnancy.  Fast forward a few months later and we were photographing her family’s In The Box Session when I first introduced them.  And again in November, side by side at the Mommylicous market, she couldn’t hold the secret in any longer that she was expecting her third baby!  I was so excited for her and together, we started planning her pregnancy progression photos In The Box (check it out here) and her newborn session!

This lady is a local celebrity.  Seriously.  Commercials playing at the movie theatre, a radio ad, Facebook videos that have gone viral, two published children’s books and not to mention being certified as a Dona Birth Doula, sleep training consultant, lactation counsellor, Spinning Babies and Happiest Baby on the Block educator, craniosacral therapist and an AMAZING childbirth educator! Her prenatal classes sell out every other month she offers them.

I love that fact she empowers other women and helps them trust and believe in themselves when it comes to pregnancy, labor, delivery and post partum.

 

If or when I ever have a fourth baby, this mama guru will be on my speed dial.

Check out some of my favourite photos from her newborn session!

Watch Me Grow

Ah, that newborn smell, the snuggles, the sleepless nights. You blink, and now your baby girl grunts through tummy time like every time before, when suddenly, she rolls over! It’s the very first time and you know instantly that a milestone is reached.

She is onto a new stage in life and in that moment, all the grunting tummy times flash through your mind because you know that is no longer the way things will be.

Weeks pass, and one day you notice she’s sitting up all on her own.  All of the moments she was still wobbly and would flop over flash through your mind. Another milestone in her little life has been reached! You quickly remember the last time this happened; however, now you can barely recollect that last mental slideshow.

How can it only have been several weeks ago and yet those mental images are starting to get blurry?

Thank goodness Amie is documenting every stage in your baby’s first year of life!

And shortly after your beautiful baby girl’s first birthday, you will receive a photo album with all of her photos to spark the memories of those milestones.

You did book a Watch Me Grow package right?

All Things Cake Smash

Cake Smash Sessions are definitely the thing to do to celebrate your baby’s 1st birthday!

My Cake Smash Sessions are custom to every baby.  No set up is exactly the same as I love being creative and collaborating with your vision for the session as well.

Fort McMurray photographer, cake smash session, Fort McMurray cake smash photographer,

Let’s answer some frequently asked questions regarding my Cake Smashes!

When should I be booking a cake smash for my baby?

I highly recommend booking your little one’s cake smash within 6-8 weeks of their first birthday. We can then schedule the session before or on their birthday, keeping in mind my 2 week turn around time for galleries.

What do I need to bring to our session?

I provide everything including the smash decor, all decor and outfit!

How much does it cost?

All of my sessions require a $200 booking fee. This fee covers the cost of my time, talent and all supplies for your session.

Proofing galleries are provided about 24 hours after your session for you to choose your favourite images to be fully edited.

Digital image packages start at $500.

This beautiful little girl gave me so many funny expressions. Mom was behind me playing her favourite songs and we were singing and dancing!

There is seriously nothing cuter than seeing and photographing your baby’s reaction to having a cake plopped in front of them to destroy and eat!

No Cake Smash Session is complete without a bubble bath!

I think almost every baby loves splashing in the warm water with a parent right by their side for safety.

A Paint Smash is a super fun alternative to a cake smash! And is even perfect for toddlers to celebrate their birthday!

Mrs. Claus Bake Shop Sessions

I’m always excited when the Christmas season rolls around and for photographers, that is usually around August/September.

I was inspired this year to do something with Mrs. Claus.  When I saw this backdrop, I was squealing with excitement!  The kitchen background, the colors, everything just spoke to me – Mrs. Claus and cookies! And who else could be better to dress up as her than my mom!

With just a few added touches, this set up came to life and my littlest clients absolutely loved decorating cookies and eating them too!

I hope to make these sessions an annual event.  I love being creative and offering unique photo sessions not only at Christmas but throughout the year.
