Asher Phoenix — Edmonton Newborn Photographers

The best part of being a photographer is getting to help out your family in capturing some special moments. Asher Phoenix is our brand new nephew (with an awesome name I must say!) We got to meet him on day one and celebrate with the proud new mommy, daddy, and big brother!

One week later we were back to see the little darling again, he is so precious I wanted to take him home but I don’t think Bee or the family would have been okay with that, the other nieces and nephews won’t be able to compete with Greg and Crystal’s beautiful boys, they are just amazingly cute! We got to hear all about being a big bro from Dexter and see the grace and ease that the new parents of TWO boys handled everything.

Such a beautiful family, we can’t wait to watch the new little one grow, congrats.














Eee vs. Bee — August Winner

“Woah, wait a second… August winner? Isn’t it November?” This is what you may be thinking to yourself and it’s no typo, we are FINALLY announcing our August Eee vs. Bee winner. We apologize so much for the two month delay in our friendly competition but in all honesty, time just slipped away from us these past two months. Bee started teaching a new grade this year and was thrown into that right as September hit, and I was just highly unprepared for getting back into my school work too! Throw a couple photo shoots in there each weekend and September and October was gone.

We do promise a thrilling November competition though to make up for our mishap and we will stay on track from now on.

But here you are, the August winner (feel free to reminisce about summer if you like!)

Bee:  Thanks for all the votes everyone!  This photo walk was quite fun as I got to take out my dad’s old Ae-1.  I also got to use a 24mm lens…. which I loved and now has me wanting to purchase the 24mm L 1.4.

Eee: Another lose! This one was tough. Using a real film camera with zero digital light meter or settings is probably the toughest thing, but so rewarding. I was quite pleased with all the pictures we printed out this time as they actually worked. (As opposed to one of many dates we went on with these beauties only to get strange looks from the printer every time the roll failed.) Whyte Ave is a signature of Edmonton in the summer Whyte Ave is always busy with pedestrians, open windows in shops and cars, and of course bikes. Biking down Whyte Ave on a hot summer day is not uncommon for those who live around this gorgeous area, so that is why I picked a bike for my photo this month.

Don’t forget to leave comments for upcoming challenge ideas you may have. We love to hear what you think and we are going to need some indoor (or cold outdoor) ideas for next month and Decemeber!
