Simple Baby Photos + Parenthood, here we come! | Sherwood Park Photography

On this rainy day in May, sitting at the computer wondering what the next 20 weeks is going to hold for us, I thought I should get down to writing a little mash up of personal and little photography post. Also, blogging during the winter you think would be easier, but its so not. So here’s getting back into it!

I’ve dabbled in newborn photography on and off since we started our business in 2011. Mostly for friends and people we know, and now that we are well on our way (halfway actually!) to being parents, I wonder if it’ll pop more in our little blog here. I started writing this post last summer, but never wanted to fully commit to posting it. Now I feel like I can add a little personal tidbit to it as well, since in perhaps 20 weeks…, we will have our own newborn (freak out commencing)

Newborns are both adorable and terrifying to us non-parents. Don’t get me wrong, we’ve been through 4 nephews, I’ve had countless experiences with babies, but whenever someone messages us up asking for newborn photos, I panic.

Since the summer of 2013, Bee and I decided to focus our efforts on wedding photography. It is something we love to spend our time doing and we feel it is really the bread and butter of Eee and Bee. We love spending time with couples, getting to know them, and hanging out on their wedding day. But there has always been a love, especially for me (eee), of portraits as well. So, we made the decision that of course we won’t stop doing portraits, but I would take the reigns on them.

Now that our time is ticking on the non parent clock, seriously… we have a nursery now and it’s so excitedly terrifying we don’t know what to do. I’ve began to think about my journey through newborn photos I’ve been blessed in being asked to take.

We’ve all seen it, the most adorable Pinterest finds of cute little babes in adorable outfits, propped up on suitcases, holding their own heads, or wrapped up like a little bean. There are some AMAZING newborn photographers in our city and beyond, they are masters at the craft of adorableness. They have studios, lights, and heaters galore. I do not have these things. So, each time someone hires me to come into their home I am praying that these are not the images they are after. And usually, they aren’t! (Phew)

They are after the simple baby photos, that they can print out and remember that brief moment where the little one was the littlest of all. That is what I have come to realize I offer.

Simple baby photos. The kind of photos that I in turn will want if the Bee and I are to ever produce a wee one.

I’ve been lucky to learn what I love most about newborn photos, it’s that amazing connection between family and baby that I’m lucky enough to get to see. I’ve seen friends become mothers and dads who said they didn’t know what to do with babies turn into giant softies around their sweet little one. This is my favorite part, seeing the reaction of becoming parents or becoming a bigger family.

Those small moments where you marvel at their fingers and toes need to be caught too, as well as the times when they are screaming louder then anything that small I thought could produce. I love it! Brothers, sisters, dogs… get them all in there!

And it begins to make me wonder what our own photos will capture. I’m sure I will be toting a camera around to capture my little one or the Bee changing his VERY FIRST DIAPER EVER (yes that’s right. ever!), but will I look the same as all these gorgeous women I know who become mothers so instantly it seems, only time will tell and I’m sure we’ll have the photos to capture it. At least a few.

So, to end this slightly sappy post, here’s a little compilation of a few newborn sessions I’m especially proud of. And I’m already looking forward to seeing some of these families again this summer for another little addition. I can’t wait!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I don’t know what will change once our little one arrives as far as how many more (or less) portrait sessions I’ll want to take on, but I do know each time I do take on a family session, I love it.


Now booking for your own simple newborn portraits, let us know more about your little one here.

Stephanie + Mike | Sherwood Park Engagement Photographers

Spending time photographing couples is probably our favorite thing to do… actually no, it IS our favorite thing to do when it comes to photography! Engagement sessions are so chill and relaxing, we hope that everyone has fun because we sure do!

Stephanie and I work together as teachers, for a year now I’ve gushed over her plans, her ring, and wondered when I’d get to meet her man. (We all have around the staff table actually!) We were so honored when they asked us to be part of their day, my excitement has been through the roof. She is such a great colleague and friend, we survived our first year of teaching together and now I get to capture those special moments of her day, fantastic!

Plus, finally we got to meet the elusive Mike. And just as adorable as Stephanie is, Mike is her perfect counterpart! These two are so friendly, warm, and super cute together. They invited us out to the country on the exact anniversary of their engagement and on yet another gorgeous fall day. The light was warm and they were many laughs shared as the sun set over the Lamont countryside.

Stephanie and Mike, we cannot wait for your country wedding come August!

Catheryne + Guy | Sherwood Park Wedding Photography

It’s always such an honor to photograph the weddings of those you feel like you’ve known forever. Catheryne and I went to high school for a short time together and have participated in church ministries together since then too. When she asked us to be a part of their day I was touched and what a fabulous day it was.

It’s not often we get to photograph a wedding at our home parish either, in fact this was our first time. So getting to stay in Sherwood Park all day caused much excitement before heading out the door. The Senez house was a buzz upon arrival with laughing ladies and hearty sandwiches ready to be eaten. A perfect start! And even though the rain sprinkled a little at the beginning of the day, it really couldn’t have been more gorgeous outside. Beautiful canola fields and playgrounds to play in. I can’t even get over how much this day was!

Catheryne and Guy opted for one our favorite parts of wedding days, a first look. This great start to a fun and relaxing day. They greeted their guests as they came into the ceremony, a unique experience Bee and I did as well. Their ceremony was touching, the love in their eyes was beyond belief and the day was absolutely wonderful. Top it all off with AMAZING dancing at the reception, we were so happy to be a part of this day.

We wish you lots of love in the future you two, congrats!
