Landen- Winnipeg Birth Photography

WOW! Times flies! It’s been a little over a year since Landen was born. This was my first birth in the Winnipeg Birth Centre. It is a beautiful centre and I would highly recommend it! Nicole and Chris did so great bringing Landen earth side. Nicole had lots of back labour but laboured through it so strongly! I loved seeing Nicole walk herself out of the birth centre just a few hours after Landen was born. Colton was so excited when his baby brother came home and was excited to share his blanket and snuggle him. Winnipeg Birth Centre_01Winnipeg Birth Centre_02Winnipeg Birth Centre_03Winnipeg Birth Centre_04Winnipeg Birth Centre_05Winnipeg Birth Centre_06Winnipeg Birth Centre_07Winnipeg Birth Centre_08Winnipeg Birth Centre_09Winnipeg Birth Centre_10Winnipeg Birth Centre_11Winnipeg Birth Centre_12Winnipeg Birth Centre_13Winnipeg Birth Centre_14Winnipeg Birth Centre_15Winnipeg Birth Centre_16Winnipeg Birth Centre_17Winnipeg Birth Centre_18Winnipeg Birth Centre_19Winnipeg Birth Centre_20Winnipeg Birth Centre_21Winnipeg Birth Centre_22Winnipeg Birth Centre_23Winnipeg Birth Centre_24Winnipeg Birth Centre_25Winnipeg Birth Centre_26Winnipeg Birth Centre_27Winnipeg Birth Centre_28Winnipeg Birth Centre_29Winnipeg Birth Centre_30Winnipeg Birth Centre_31Winnipeg Birth Centre_32Winnipeg Birth Centre_33Winnipeg Birth Centre_34Winnipeg Birth Centre_35Winnipeg Birth Centre_36Winnipeg Birth Centre_37Winnipeg Birth Centre_38Winnipeg Birth Centre_39Winnipeg Birth Centre_40Winnipeg Birth Centre_41Winnipeg Birth Centre_42Winnipeg Birth Centre_43Winnipeg Birth Centre_44Winnipeg Birth Centre_45Winnipeg Birth Centre_46Winnipeg Birth Centre_47Winnipeg Birth Centre_48Winnipeg Birth Centre_49Winnipeg Birth Centre_50Winnipeg Birth Centre_51Winnipeg Birth Centre_52Winnipeg Birth Centre_53

Taylor and Ric- Calgary Wedding Photography

Taylor and Ric make such a great couple! They are a dream to photograph! Taylor is my sister so I got to shoot parts of her wedding. They also had another photographer take family pictures and pictures at the reception. It was a perfect set up. It was so fun to shoot Taylor’s wedding because I obviously know her well and could photograph things that make her who she is. For example, she has always been “the apple girl” as you’ll notice in her getting ready pictures.

Taylor and Ric were sealed in the Calgary, Alberta LDS temple surrounded by close family and friends and had a fun filled reception. A day to remember!

What brought me to Birth Photography

I often wonder what events in my life shaped me into who I am today. Kind of along the lines of the movie “It’s a wonderful life.” (If you haven’t seen that movie, watch it!)

I found some birth pictures from when my little brothers was born that I took when I was about seven and nine years old. I remember being so excited about the whole process I used a whole roll of film when one of my brothers was crowning because I didn’t want to miss anything!

Photographing my brother’s births was one of the keys to leading me to where I am today. Another influence was my mom being a midwife. My little brothers were just babies when my mom worked as a midwife and they were still nursing so I would go to births with my mom. I would watch my brothers while my mom attended the birth. These are faint memories but I remember feeling special that I could be part of such an amazing event in someones life! The midwifes would be busy going in and out and I could hear the mom in labour. I loved being in that atmosphere!

The last piece that drew me to birth photography is, while I was attending photography school I did an assignment about the Birth Centre in Calgary. I thought about how neat it would be to photograph a birth. My sister was pregnant at the time and let me photograph hers. I was in awe at how beautifully strong my sister was and I knew I needed to photograph more births.

These few events are what have taken me to this point in my life. I love birth photography so much!

Zoey- Calgary Birth Photography

What an amazing birth! Emily is my sister and births like a champ! The nurses didn’t believe she was in labour when she got to the hospital because she was so calm and took everything so well. She was even laughing and having fun an hour or two before Zoey was born. This was such a special birth to be at as I watched my third niece be born.
