Breastfeeding Photography Calgary | Tree of Life Photography Using PicsArt | Bottle Feeding Photography Calgary

I've been meaning to share this post for a while.  Several months ago there was a trend on social media called Tree of Life photos.  Using a cool app called PicsArt women were creating amazing breastfeeding images and sharing them (mostly on Instagram) to promote breastfeeding.  I've had the privilege to photograph a few of my clients breastfeeding so I decided to use the pictures and create the Tree of Life images as a gift for them.  They truly loved them!

One of my clients, who is an amazing Midwife here in Calgary (www.briarhillmidwives.ca), was particularly excited by the pictures as she is a huge breastfeeding advocate.  When Mother's Day came around her husband contacted me and asked if I could enlarge the photos and put them on canvas.  Of course I did and the results were beautiful.  I have shared some pictures of the canvases below.

Honestly, as I was making these amazing images for my clients I felt a little left out as I wasn't able to breastfeed my son for a number of reasons.  So I created my own images using a pregnancy picture and some bottle feeding pictures.  I was also thrilled with how my own images turned out and though there is a lot of pressure to breastfeed always remember fed is best.

I've included some of my own images as well as my client images (shared with their permission) below.  If you would like to create your own Tree of Life photo here is a tutorial:  https://www.thebump.com/news/breastfeeding-tree-of-life-photos

Cake Smash Photography Calgary | One Year Photo Session in Calgary | Adorable Zoe

I was so excited for Zoe's cake smash photography session.  She is just the most adorable little girl.  She came into the studio and we captured some gorgeous photos of her before we started the cake smash.  Zoe really enjoyed her cake and was full of smiles.  She was quite messy at the end which makes for the best kind of cake smash photography!

Calgary Baby Photography | 6 Month Photo Session in Calgary | Baby Allison

Sweetest baby Allison came in for her sitter session and she was just delightful!  We captured so many smiles and cute outfits.  She is just a joy to photograph!

I just love sitter sessions!  These photography sessions are quick and easy for the baby and the parents (and the photographer)!  Babies are so happy at this age and give lots of smiles and eye contact. Sitter sessions are best photographed when your baby is sitting comfortably but hasn't really started to crawl yet (usually between 6 and 8 months of age but will vary depending on the individual baby).

Calgary Newborn Photographer | Baby Photography Calgary | Baby Luke

I was so excited to meet adorable baby Luke.  He came in for his newborn photo session when he was just under 2 weeks of age.  He was wide awake at the beginning so we were able to capture his beautiful eyes and sweet facial expressions.  Once he drifted off we were able to use some props that were special to his Mom.  We used some cowboy boots, baseball hat and glove, as well as a quilt, hat, and stuffed bunnies that had special meaning.  Such a sweet little guy!

Calgary Pregnancy Photographer | Studio Maternity Photography Calgary | Beautiful Jennifer

I had the most beautiful studio maternity session recently.  Jennifer is just stunning and was excited to try out some different images.  We were able to use some soft, flowing, white fabric to create a lovely dreamy look.  Then we changed it up and used some props including adorable baby shoes and some stunning pink heels.  I love the amazing variety of pregnancy images we were able to capture.  Stay tuned for images of her sweet baby boy who arrived just days after this pregnancy photo shoot!

Newborn Photography Calgary | Calgary Baby Photographer | Baby C.J.

I was so happy when I was contacted by C.J.'s family to photograph his newborn session.  I also photographed his big brother 3 years ago (see his newborn photos here http://bit.ly/2ub8fkk).  Just like his brother, C.J., arrived a few weeks early.  He was a tiny at his photo session weighing in at just over 5 pounds.  I loved capturing his delicate features and his stretches and yawns.  Although, he has started to fill out a bit now I'm glad we were able to document him when he was just born and so tiny and precious.

Newborn Photographer Calgary | Calgary Baby Photography | Allison's Newborn Lifestyle Session

Of course, I wanted to take some more newborn photos of my lovely niece, Allison.  So I arranged to do an in-home lifestyle session a few weeks after her studio session.  I enjoyed capturing her in her own environment and documenting some of the little details of her nursery and her interactions with her Mom.  I loved that she was so sleepy and relaxed when I arrived which allowed me to catch some sweet smiles and yawns.  After a short time, she woke up and showed off her beautiful blue eyes!  Such a gorgeous baby girl!

Family Photographer Calgary | Calgary Family Photography | Baker Family

I love working with the Baker Family!  I have been photographing them since the two youngest kids were babies and we always have a blast.  This is a super busy family so they don't have much flexibility for rescheduling sessions.  That's why we went ahead with the family photos even though it was starting to rain.  It ended up lightly raining for most of the session but we still had a ton of fun and captured some great memories.  I love seeing the developing personalities of these kids year after year.  Can't wait for our next session!

Newborn Photographer Calgary | Calgary Newborn Photography | Baby Leah

Photographing baby Leah was such a joy!  She is so loved by her parents and big sister, Teagan.  Leah was just about 2 weeks old for her newborn photographs.  My favorite picture from this session is the one of her smiling while her gorgeous Mom is holding her.  We captured some beautiful pictures of baby Leah and her family and I can't wait to see her grow up :)

Pregnancy Photographer Calgary | Calgary Maternity Photography | Outdoor Maternity Photo Session at North Glenmore Park | Leah and Neil

These pregnancy photographs hold a special place in my heart!  These are my brother and sister in law's pregnancy photos taken in North Glenmore Park, Calgary.  Leah wasn't sure she wanted to do maternity photographs but as the pregnancy went on she decided she did want to capture these moments after all.  I'm so glad she changed her mind!

Here he is!  Adorable baby Mika!  I had so much fun working with this family again and meeting little Mika.  He came in for his newborn photographs at 2 weeks of age and we were able to capture some great sleepy images of him alone.  He woke up for some family images and we were able to see his gorgeous eyes!

I really enjoyed working with this beautiful family.  I also loved photographing adorable, 2 year old, Zoe.  She is such a sweet little girl and spoke the most wonderful French.  We captured some beautiful pictures of these special moments as a family of three before their little boy arrived.

Calgary Baby Photographer | Baby Photography Calgary | Anna

This was my second time photographing lovely Anna.  She came in for a Spring Mini Session and she was the perfect age for this type of photo shoot.  Full of smiles and happy to cooperate for a few different set ups.  I really enjoyed photographing Anna again and seeing her beautiful family!

When babies are 6-8 months, sitting on their own, and not crawling yet it is a great time for a photo session.  To see more baby photography please visit my website at www.windrushimages.com

Calgary Kids Photography | Calgary Twins Photographer | Michael and Joshua

It was my second time photographing these awesome twins.  For this session, Michael and Joshua were 18 months old so they were super active.  I knew it would be challenging to keep them entertained and in one place so I had lots of props ready to keep their attention.  So much fun!

Baby Daniel was a dream to work with.  He came in for his newborn photos when he was 2 weeks old, which is the perfect time to photograph newborns.  We were able to capture so many adorable moments of Daniel alone and also interacting with his parents.  What a sweet baby boy!

I was thrilled to photograph this beautiful mother to be.  She is gorgeous and was just glowing.  I really loved the look of this image in black and white so I thought I'd share this one (as well as a beautiful belly image).  There were so many stunning pregnancy images from this session that it was hard to choose.  Stay tuned to see her beautiful newborn baby boy in future posts!

Calgary Family Photography | Winter Family Photography in Calgary

In Calgary, most family photography sessions are done in the summer and fall, just due to the unpredictability of our Calgary weather.  But with a little flexibility gorgeous photos can be taken in the winter too!  I love photographing this family and we were lucky enough to have a mild sunny but snowy day for the photo shoot!
